    Hi, I have a 2011 Guilietta 1.6JTDM. I have noticed the Battery positive terminal was loose and the 2 circular connectors are damaged. My local garage have said to replace the connectors it will cost nealry £100 as you cant buy just the metal connectors. Is this right? The metal connectors...

    Got home to my Wife telling me car won’t start, I need to put an RPG into my Alfa’s! Pretty much dead battery tonight, can’t really turn it over. A lowly 11.75 on the voltage, all connections are good, but the electrical connector on the pos terminal hasn’t been reconnected, I reckon for a...

    I have a 147 and I need to replace my positive battery terminal (the one to which the fuse panel is attached) . It’s a bit different than most on the market. I did notice something on eBay which looks like it might suit my needs. Is this 3-way leisure terminal the one to get for our cars?

    Hi, Please see attched photo, I cleaned the airbox out and five miles later it was full of gunk again. I don't seem to be losing much water (an eggcup full every week) There is no oil in the water but small amount of gunk on underside of oil filler. I have changed head gasket recently, the head...

    Had a scout around but I haven't found a battery terminal cover for my G 2.0 jtdm-2 anywhere. Does anyone have any idea where I might find one. Are they same as on other models (which I have found)?

    Imagine travelling horizontally at a speed nearing terminal velocity!? But then the guy in front of you goes to overtake a lorry that pulls into his path! Do the brake lights on an A class flash like you have an expert rally driver performing cadence braking or have MB switched from hazards to...
  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Thought I'd share this incase it helps anyone else. The battery terminal on the GTV is not available separately (I believe it can be purchased along with the power cable for a small fortune). However, it is a standard MTA part that is used on lots of different cars. I've found that Renault use...
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My 159 V6 had an engine management light common last week along with a complete loss of power. Rac came out and - most unhelfpully - cleared all the codes. Fast forward and my garage can crank the engine but not get an error code from it. The garage has tried the TDC sensor to no avail and are...

    Can anyone confirm if there should be a plastic cover on the -ve terminal (the one with the Start/Stop sensor) ? There's a cover on the +ve terminal on mine but not on the -ve terminal ....and I kinda remember that there used to be (or not :)) This is for a 2010 1.6 JTDM

    The main cluster of terminals on the battery, positive I think, should there be a cover on this? Mine are exposed and I can't find any information wether a cover should be there.
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Tried replacing the battery in my 2006 Brera this morning with a Bosch S5 096 only to find that the positive terminal was too small for the clamp! Anyone else found this issue before? Am thinking that I may need to bite the bullet and go directly to a dealership and get an original but seems...

    Is it terminal? Started noticing exhaust noises (blowing Sound and a metal rattle/vibrating sound , can see black speckle on the exhaust pipe itself, but noticed this as a major
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Got my fingers crossed here but fearing the worst! Bought a 156 sportwagon 2.0 TS at the weekend. test drive was fine and couldn't find any obvious issues and everything seemed to be good. Guy had receipts and photos of the cam belt and auxillary belt swap that he had done. Started on my way...
