  1. Front dome lights not automatically turning on

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello, As the title says - the front dome lights don't turn on when the car is unlocked, and don't turn on when the doors are opened. The ones in the back DO turn on however. The dome lights themselves can be switched on using the switch, but other than that they don't do it automatically. I'm...

  10. Creaking when turning steering wheels since installing Quaife diff

    Tuning & Upgrades
    My 3.0 156 is making a creaking sound when I turn the steering wheel ever since the diff was installed. It does it when the car is stationary and at low speeds so I'm guessing the diff itself isn't actually the cause, but it occurred at the same time that the diff (and 3.0 engine for that...

    Hello Everyone, I thought I will share with you my story and in the same time ask for some guidance with my newly acquired TwinSpark 75. Might not technically be a barn find as it was a garage and was only sitting there around 8 years but close enough. I found this car on a small ad site in...

    After its long run last week, I have a small problem. With ignition on, the headlights are always on. I can't turn them off. They go off with the ignition off, so no big drama and dip/high beam works just fine. These are the standard halogens. Any ideas anyone, where to start looking? Could...
