    Hi all. I have a 156 2.0 TS. Timing belt stripped when starting the car. After sitting for 3 months I finally changed the timing belt. I want to do a compression test before assuming the valves were hit. When I try to turn it over the starter clicks once and then a humming sound for a few...

    Hi team, My 4 cylinder 2006 GT was bunny hopping and I changed my Ev0 seals and now I have put everything back together and the car won't start. Everything works as per normal including all lights, fuel pump makes a sound, key turns but the car doesn't crank or the key doesn't turn all the way...

    Can’t find anything in the handbook or online - does anyone know if I can kill the function where the headlights come on whenever it’s unlocked? And going to be doing a bi xenon conversion and don’t want the lights coming on unnecessarily.

    Hello everyone. I have got a 2005 Alfa GT 1.9 JTD I've recently replaced the window switch after replacement my aftermarket head unit (Sony XAV AX100) doesn't want to turn on. What I've checked so far. - Fuses in the dash are good (checked with multimeter) - Fuses in the engine Bay are good...

    Hi guys. The left side turn signal light on our Giulietta has stopped working. Can I change the light myself or do I need to go to a repair shop? Thanks in advance.

    A bit of a nuisance this one since we’ve been regularly getting 40 degree C days this Summer. It just occurred last night. The electric interior cooling fan won’t turn off. As well, it won’t alter its speed. I’m thinking the control switch is cactus or there is a wire behind the panel that has...

    I have the 8" Infotainment on a 17 Giulia and I cant turn the radio off! I can mute it but next time I switch on the ignition it's on again. I can adjust Settings so that the radio is Auto Off but then I need to switch the screen on and the %$£$% radio comes on again. The only solution I can see...

    Has anyone found a permanent way to turn off Start-Stop ? I get in and out 3 different cars every day so not much on developing habit I also think its dangerous in 4 cyl turbo cars as pulling out in traffic and having close to 1 sec delay can be harrowing. Once again I drive 3 cars each day...

    Good day everyone, I'm replacing the belts of my 156 2.0 TS. In order to turn the engine to reach TDC i simply would like to use a wrench with a 19mm socket on the crankshaft bolt. My problem is that i can't get to that nut, the socket being too thick. How do you do this? Thinner socket...

    Only noticed it today, my plate lights won't turn off. Can someone please help?
  13. Alfa MiTo
    Probably sound really stupid but I’ve had my Mito QV for a few months now, still can’t work out how to turn my DRLs on. I can turn on sidelights while the headlights are on but can’t seem to turn on DRLs with headlights off? Am I missing something obvious?
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Stopped the engine today and removed the key but the internal fan just continued to running at full speed. I had to disconnect the battery to prevent it from going flat then let it all cool down but it still runs as soon as the battery is reconnected. I've removed the fuse for now so I'm...
  15. Alfa Giulietta
    Newbie here with a Giulietta 1.4 that I've owned since new in Hong Kong. With summer now in full swing and temps above 32 degrees, my Alfa's heated front seat (driver's side) decided that now is the time to turn itself on, full nuclear power. No amount of fiddling with the 3 position dial will...

    apparently Vauxhall will be in court over this. Not just the way it drives. Who pays, Peugeot or GM?
