  1. Help required: removing air vents

    Alfa MiTo
    Evening all, A quick search on the forum yielded no results, so here we go: how does one remove the 4 air vents from the dashboard? Specifically, the 4 round front-facing ones. If I recall from the 159, it takes two J-shaped pieces of wire/metal and a firm tug to pull them free. Is it the same...

    Alfa MiTo
    Been on holiday for 2 weeks and my son’s Alfa wanted some air in one of the tyres, so the lazy urchin asked me to do it while he got ready to go to his part time job. Started the engine and smoke billowed from the side air vents and the engine spluttered to a clunky stop....... Mild panic as...

  7. Bonnet vents

    Alfa GTA
    I've got a spare GT bonnet which I've been thinking about getting some vents put in to aid engine cooling (CF3) and then resprayed in my gabbiano blue. Has anyone ever done this? Just wondering how it would look and weather it would be worth it or not. I would keep my original bonnet so I could...

    I have a couple of questions about the 156 ventilation system I'm hoping you guys can help me with.

  11. 156 Air Vents?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Weird one this and should be well down on the "to do" list (front suspension creaks, em light, abs light, small oil leak, thermostat...) but it's driving me insane! 156 V6 SW '02 and truly love it despite the current long list of problems, the issue? Front facing air vents in do not blow...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The sun was shining through the back of my Spider & for the first time saw that the 3 little vents under the temp control on the left side are open behind,the right hand vents are not. Is this where the temperature sensor for the cabin lives?

    Hi I have found a vent close to the steering column under the dash in the drivers footwell which blows cold air constantly. It does not match the footwell vents shown in the manual. I thought i could feel a draught and investigated today. Any thoughts or ideas.

  15. Dash Air Vents Alfa 159

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Something that has bugged me since I've owned my beautiful 159 is that the previous owner must have pushed the dial on the air vent past where it was meant to go as it's stuck to the off position (but still pumping air out). Has anyone else encountered this before, if so how did they fix it...

  19. Hot air through the dash vents.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Well, here's another fix for you. I had a failed heater control valve that was allowing the heater to be slightly on when in the off position. I replaced the valve and was a bit dissapointed when there was still a bit of heat coming through when the engine was really hot. Found the source...
  20. Center air vents

    Alfa GTA
    Hey guys How can I remove the center air vent on top of the dash? Is it just clipped on? It's gone really gooey and now looks awful with all dust sticking to it and the odd finger print here and there. I want to take it off, give it a proper clean and respray it.
