  1. Alfa Romeo Brera front bumper chrome trims and headlight washers

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey guys, I had the unfortune to hit a guy that suddenly stopped in front of me and lost my right chrome trim on the front bumper (right next to the headlights) and somehow one of the headlights' washers fell apart but without any significant damage to the bumper itself. Could you please tell...
  2. Windscreen washers

    Alfa Giulia
    Twice in the last month I’ve run out of washer fluid without any dash warning. Does the Giulia have washer fluid low level warnings? I find it hard to believe a £30,000+ car doesn’t have this:cheeky: First service next month, so if it does have low fluid warnings then I’ll have to add it to the...
  3. Rose joint washers?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Guys I've decided to treat the spider to a pair of new spring pans, the off side has had it, the new ones come with rose joints, the ones on the car at the moment have powerflex bushes and washers both sides. Do I need washers on both sides with the Rose joints? Please can anyone tell me and...
  4. Headlight washers query

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Morning, I can’t hear my headlight wash working. In previous cars you get a noticeable second pump sound when the operate. The handbook says the headlight wash should operate when you activate the windscreen washers when headlights are on. Should they squirt every time you wash the screen...
  5. Headlamp washers not functioning

    Alfa Giulia
    With the recent lack of rain in the UK I've come to notice that the headlamp washers on my 66 QF are no longer firing when washing the windscreen. There's no reference to a specific fuse, so I can only think this is a software bug on my version or a hardware issue. Anybody else encountered?
  6. Headlamp washers - can anyone help?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    A little background : I'm looking to do a headlamp washer retrofit on my car ( not 159/Brera/Spider ) and the 159 ( for brevity ) style headlamp washer may be the one of the few acceptable options I have. First of all does anyone have a detailed photo of the inside of the bumper to show the...

  8. Screen washers not working

    Alfa Giulietta
    Filled screen wash up yesterday and neither front or back are working. Wipers come on but no noises from pump. Fuse is fine so had a look around filler bottle, going round the front of the bottle leading below the headlight unit are 3 cables joined together, one of them leads to a rectangular...
  9. Headlight washer nuts

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Evening all, I bought a couple of headlight washers for my 156 and am going to need a couple of new nuts, as the old ones seize up as some bright spark though it would be good to have an ally thread and a steel nut :grin:. Does anyone know the correct nut size need? The washers seem to have a...
  10. Sub-zero temps & heated windscreen washers

    Alfa Giulia
    I've been off work for a while because of our 'use-it-or-lose-it' policy so today was the first time in a while I've had to drive in the morning. I don't know about you but up here it was about -7°C in the morning and after deicing I got on the motorway and very quickly realised that the window...
  11. Headlight washers

    Alfa MiTo
    I have stepped into the lovely TB world recently. :D There is one thing I need to ask as I really have no time to remove the bumper anytime soon. Are the headlight washers/jets attached to the bumper? Would it be possible to attach them to a bumper without holes for them and just cut out the...
  12. I make parts (Headlight washer kit )

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Everybody, I am currently making headlight washers kit by redesigning it . I have printed a first prototype that fit on the part. I am just making few adjustments, then I can produce a small (or not) serie with plastic injection. I show you some photos of my work. As you see the printed part...
  13. Windscreen washers on the blink

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Discovered when I first had occasion to use them, last week, after being away from the car for 2 months, that the windscreen washers are playing up. At that point, there was a weak stream from each nozzle which reached barely a third of the way up the screen. Now, it's a pathetic little dribble...
  14. Windscreen washers not working

    Alfa GTA
    I have just had my gearbox out for diff failure and have replaced outer CV joints at the same time. Now my windscreen washers wont work. I have replaced the fuse even though it looked ok. Is there a relay for the pump? if so where is it? Otherwise I will next pull the pump out to check it.
  15. Jet powered screen washers.........

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Unlike my GT which just dribbles my 156 appears to have a jet propelled windscreen washer which does a great job at washing the sunroof and rear window with a token spray on the intended windscreen. I've tried tinkering with them but to no avail, any ideas how best to redirect them a little...
  16. Retrofitting headlight washers

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I know the general consensus is not to bother but I'm planning on putting bixenon projectors in the headlights so I would feel better if it atleast looked like the car has standard xenons. I pretty much already have all the parts (washers are on the way) but I'm not quite sure how much work is...
  17. GT headlight washers caused faI led mot today

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Folks, please help with a headlight washer issue, as it was the cause of my failed mot today (well, that and front tyres which I expected). Tried to look for info, but after 15 or so threads, no joy. Time is of the essence, so posting this up now before reading more threads. If you know of...
  18. The big washers that go on the ends of the bolts on the rear subframe...

    Alfa GTA
    There are two different sizes and I forgot to make a note of which goes where. Do the larger of the two pairs of washers go on the toe arm bolts or the other ones? Can anyone remember or does anyone have a pic handy? It's not clear on ePer or eLearn which is which. Thanks
