  1. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, I've just recently got a nice 2002 blue 916 Spider (with no history). The issue is the roof doesn't work at all and there is a blank plate in the centre console where the roof operation button should be. The 2 buttons behind the drivers seat don't seem to do anything either. Is it...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey everyone So, my alternators gone. Ordered a new one for Europarts for £120 (including cash back for the old one). Gone to eLearn , followed the instructions, Covers off, Fuel Filter out and then i got confused as to why I am being asked to remove the Oil Evap unit on the opposite side of...

    So - what would be your reaction if you saw a Rosso Brunello spider with a maroon/burgundy soft top? Tasteful and elegant or vulgar and vomit-inducing? I can’t make up my I a Chav???

    61 plate 1.4 MA (170), that I've owned for about a month now. Engine oil is starting to get a bit low (just over a 3rd of the way down the dip stick - I know, I should have checked!) Reading around on the MA engines I know that they're quite particular about oil. Digging into the history of mine...

    Hi guys, Tried searching but was not successful. Need your expertise, has anyone changed spark plugs on their 1.4 TB engine [appreciate too, if there is any thing to look out for]. I am trying to remove the plastic engine cover, which is secured by 2 bolts - and this attachment (see photo) at...
  6. Alfa Giulietta
    Hey all. Currently have car up on lift doing other work. Have bad tyre wear and just wondering if alignment of the hole on the rubber of the strut top mount to the front or the rear hole in the body will mate any difference. Mine ar both pointing forward. See image. Had a look at my brothers...
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    A couple of days ago a swine slashed the roof of my beloved Floozy (2005 Spider Lusso) Does anyone have guidance on how to replace the fabric roof (electric)? Can anyone recommend a good supplier of fabric roof? Thanks David :grumpy:

  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As my baby boy has outgrown his rear-facing isofix car seat (+base), I need to buy a new one (1/2/3). The problem is that there is nowhere to attach the top tether of the child seat in the car. I found this old thread...
  10. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Follow alfisti, my soft top has a cracked plastic gear on the hatch opening which prevented the roof from opening ..I've since replaced the gear and now I've observed that the motor doesn't release the hatch when I press the centre opening closing switch .i can hear all motors working as it...
  11. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I set up an alert ages ago and it has just thrown this up. Someone is making a good mark up though. About twice the main dealer price as I recall. It would apear to be located in France.

  13. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've just bought a new soft top and window for my Spider, I have found a really good guy fairly near to me who can fit it for the right money but he can't fit me in till mid July! Not sure if I should wait or have a go at it myself. Any one done theirs and if so how hard would you rate it?
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi Well, after only 11 months and 5000 miles of careful driving, my near side upper arm (TRW) has failed again, omitting a god awful creak. Thankfully the item is being replaced under warranty. The offside (also TRW) has covered 12000 miles and is also well on its way and needs to be changed...
  15. Alfa Giulia
    With this month's edition of the magazine, Top Gear have added a Giulia to their long term fleet, but this time around have gone for the 'everyman' version (their words !) - ie a Super 2.0 in MC Blue. Although they have then specc'ed it up to just short of £40K with : seven hole alloys climate...
  16. General Motoring Discussion
    I've been watching a few old Top Gear episodes (including the ones with Angela Ripon). Some moments are quite funny, such as the first 3 minutes or so of this clip If you've got any, post 'em here :)

  18. Alfa 164 & 166
    Just a note, if anyone decides to use General Moog upper suspension arms, be aware they last about 15,000 miles only, so paying the extra for them is kinda a waste. Trying TRW next. ??
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As I noticed some time ago, an excellent indicator of failing rear strut top mountings when the rear wheels are hanging (rear jacked up) is reduced or no gap between the rear strut top, top plates and the rear strut turrets. There should be a gap of up to 4mm, particularly towards the...
  20. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    As the title says really ...where is the cheapest place to get a left upper wishbone for a late (so the different taper) 159? Lots on ebay seem to be selling one type for all years....we all know that wont work. Want a branded one...rather than a no name Chinese one. Meryle, Borg and Beck or TRW...
