    I just sold my 147 to a local lad, who promptly had the car washed, and now he tells me the electric windows don't work, and the tailgate button no longer opens the boot! Poor guy! Not the introduction to Alfa Romeos he might have wanted! Sounds like a simple fuse to me, but what do I know...

    Washed the 159 today for the first time since I've had it! Here are a few piccies; I must say I'm really enjoying the car. It's everything I thought it was going to be and doesn't disappoint in any way. Another one of those cars that you just don't mind getting into early...

    Hi Guys, I have a 156 JTD which I took for a much needed jet wash about a week and a half back. The first problem I noticed was a bulb blown lightcame on as I drove off and turned on my lights. The next more sinister problem is the airbag light came on. I'm hoping that maybe its just a cases...

    Okay so last night my two year old decided that my car key needed a wash and tossed it in without me seeing, needless to say I only found it when I was going out to dry the clothes. I used my hairdryer on it and it worked perfectly this morning. Now I am sitting at work, car is locked and I...

    Hi gang, Many thanks for the welcome I received in the newbies section :thumbs: I have a few things I need to attend to on our (my wifes) 147. It's a 2004 JTD 16v Multijet 140. It goes like hell! I know it's a diesel but it's nice to have some decent power again (plus 42 mpg). A few things...

    What a delight - after a winter where the car has suffered total abuse from the elements she got the works today. washed, White spirit to remove tar, then clayed, then polished and quite frankly she looks a million dollars. You won't approve of the wax (colour magic) but it does a damn fine...

    I washed my engine on Saturday. Since then I couldn't exceed 90kmh. I keep on getting the message Engine Control System Failure. I did a ECU reset with no luck. Today the car wouldn't exceed 1000rpm. I checked all the fuses, and now I get the message Immobilizer failure which I don't have a code...

    Given my car a good TLC session today and now want to protect my invested time. I've a choice of 3 products in the garage - AutoGlym resin polish, Meguirs NXT Wax and Collinte 676 (think that's the number) Which product(s) would you use ? I've a couple of scratches, should I take them out on...
