    Alfa Giulietta
    I just had a go at removing the bumper on my G so that I could replace the failed healdight assembly. I have failed miserably.

  3. Unable to Engage 1st Gear

    Alfa GTA
    Hoping someone can offer some advice before I start making phone calls tomorrow morning. I started the car about half an hour ago and when I tried to engage 1st gear the clutch went pretty much to the floor before I could feel any resistance. There just wasn't enough to enable me to get into...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have upgraded the RadioNav unit in my 2010 Brera 1750 to a Pioneer Apple Car play.

After replacing battery my clock and date settings are...
  6. unable to start

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Hi, I've just replace the engine in the car but it fails to start, I didn't think that this would be easy as the distributor was loose when I received the engine and I assumed that the timing would be a problem but I can't seem to get fuel out of the mechanical pump. Does the mechanical fuel...
  7. Unable to move gear stick horizontally

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Past 2 weeks my shifter on my 156 2003 has been acting a bit weird. When I just start the car up it is completely fine, but once the car warms up (about 10 minutes) the gear stick becomes harder to move. Specifically when moving horizontally (vertically is completely fine). I mostly notice this...

    I took my car to tanvic to change the tyres & do the tracking, they say that they've been unable to get one wheel off due to the bolts being over tightened. unfortunately they've destroyed the head of the (OEM) locking bolt in the process so now the key wont engage. I thought about a locking...
