  1. Brera Driver's Seat Tilt Handle

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Unfortunately my 2.2 (2007 model) driver's seat tilt handle clip (the bit plastic fork that holds the wire in the handle) has snapped - the wire is still in situ. Has anyone got an idea where I can find a replacement handle as it seems Alfa no longer make them and the usual suppliers do not hold...
  2. Brera Tilt & Slide/Seat pull mechanism

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider

    After its 2 month winter holiday on axle stands, my 147 alarm is playing up intermittently. The other day it was OK for almost 24hrs. Yesterday it went off twice so I locked the car on the key.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, I have a problem with my passenger seat. All cables are attached and when I pull the lever on the side of the seat it tilts but will not slide forward.

    Hi Does anyone know how to remove the seat tilt adjustment handle in the photo below? Mine is very very loose and was hoping to replace it but unsure if a new handle will fix the problem or if it's related to the shaft on which it's mounted into the side of the seat or another internal...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all. I have 2008 2.4 Brera. The seat tilt handle has always been stiff and eventually has broken. I know people have got these replaced under warranty but mine is well out of warranty.

  17. Brera Seat tilt mechanism

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The tilt mechanism doesn't work on the drivers seat of my Brera (57) meaning I can't access the rear seat. There is no visible damage, but when I pull on the lever, it doesn't open fully and the seat doesn't tilt forward. Has anybody had a similar problem that they managed to resolve? I...

    A few months back I was running my mate and his misses to a Wedding, when he went to let her out by reclining the front passenger seat forward and the catch broke. Tonight, whilst getting some stuff out from the back seat I broke the drives side catch too. My alfa's now a 2 seater :cry...

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Lately I've noticed that my 33 (1991 model) has been sitting slightly tilted to the right (when viewed from the inside). For some time I attributed this to non-level ground where I park, but I am notiacing this everywhere (even on flat and tilted-the-other-way ground). The right front wheel...
  20. newbie MiTo query - anti tilt light

    Alfa MiTo
    The anti-tilt sensor light on my MiTo has come on - meaning, I presume from the manual, that the anti-tilt alarm is now off. How do I switch it back on?!
