  1. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Having just bought a Spider to go with the GTV, I've managed to get both insured with Admiral on a multi-car policy for just over £500 for 8000 miles each including business use with £250 excess which I was quite pleased with with no claims on just one of the cars. Next on the list was breakdown...

  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I've had an issue for a while with closing my Spider's roof - it gets stuck on the part where it needs to lift up the back window - it just sits there with a motor running, but doesn't do anything - manual assistance is eventually required to help it along. Recently I had an idea of stopping...

    I've been doing battle with my 159's passenger side dip beam bulb...and losing! Access is impossible and I can't even be sure that the bulb is seated properly let alone get the bloody clip back on. Much shouting and cursing had ensued but to no avail. Is there a simple trick to this that I am...
  7. Alfa GTA
    Help me forum users, you are my only hope! My Bose subwoofer is making the well known rattle. I tried to take the whole lot off today, but could not take the subwoofer frame or the parcel shelf off, so could not get to the rattle :rant: Does anyone have a solution for this ?
  8. Alfa GTA
    After replacing the top and bottom rad hoses, I noticed a split in the intake air pipe elbow. Had one from Autolusso, but it just keeps popping off the throttle body! I can get it on, then tighten the jubilee clip and as it tightens the pipe pops off! I've managed to getting it to hold, but...

    :cheese: HAS ANYONE GOT ONE? This B****** of a job is by far the most frustrating thing i have dealt with on the car since taking the thing apart. With no access to the brake-end leavers, a melted old cable and 15minutes here and there to work on the car It's near enough driven me to insanity...

  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello Was chatting to a fellow Alfa enthusiast about this cold snap we're currently 'enjoying' and the effect it has on Alfas. He said an old trick was to put a piece of cardboard between the grill and radiator to keep your alfa nice and snug. I firstly asked if he was having a laugh and then...
  14. Alfa 164 & 166
    While replacing my driver's side headlamp unit, I discovered ther is a knuckle saving trick to replacing the leveling motor. The ball end will go into the socket easily if the back of the motor is tipped up, ball end facing down. It then slides into the knuckle and located securely when motor...
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    ... stopping the seatbelts twisting up and/or falling out of the seat guides? They're a pain. Its like the krypton factor trying to get them back the right way as they've usually twisted back inside the rear panel so you can't see which way to undo them
