  1. Powerflex Washers?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Read a bit on her about these, some say they are surplus to requirements? Is this the case? I'm on the upper wishbones at the moment and they don't look like the washers will fit in there?
  2. Xenons.... No washers or levelling?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So I have just seen this and has the potential to open a can of worms As an option, the ŠKODA Rapid received xenon headlights. The xenon lamp has a luminous flux up to 2,000 lumen. This system requires no headlamp leveling and headlamp cleaning system yet. Advantage: a lower price compared to...
  3. Windscreen washers

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Does anyone on here have a pair of washer jets pointing at the roof like mine do? I can't see any form of adjustment either like on with most cars. It's quite annoying especially after you have washed the car and end up with screen wash spray on the roof.
  4. where do the washers go on the upper wishbones? (pics)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, Have been thinking about my premature upper wishbone bush failure and started to wonder about the washer placement. If you look at this picture where would you say the washers go? is it 1. bolt / topmount / washer /...
  5. JTDm 16v Injector Washers

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have decided to give the injectors on my JTDm 16v a good clean, which means changing the injector seals. The first two injectors & seals have come out ok, but it would seem that 3 & 4 have two sets of seals in there? One came out attached to the damp injectors, and the other remains steadfast...
  6. Headlight washers delay

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I think most of us are frustrated (who have xenon's) when every time you spray windsheald liquid to clean windsheald it also sprayes on headlights. For example VW is programed that headlights are washed only every 5 times you wash windscrean. Maybe you have some ideas how to do it for Alfa...
  7. Should OEM Xenon HID owners disconnect their washers?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I took apart my latest fried ECU to find : There's no potting or protection on the PCB The socket has a handy 'drain hole' right onto the top of surface mount components Surely the main potential water culprit is the direct spraying from the washer jets? Given these ECUs a 430 GBP a time...
  8. Xenon Headlamp Washers??

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I am currently looking at getting a 159 Ti SW but I have been looking for one with the factory fitted xenon headlamps. ('cos once you've got 'em you don't wanna go back!) but I have a question...headlamp washers... Now I am aware that to comply with EU laws xenon lights should have headlamp...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Is this normal on Lusso cars or are they part of some sort of options pack?
  11. Headlight washers fixed, for a fiver.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 'new' 156 had the classic fault were it drained its washer reservoir over a couple of days. After doing some reading it appeared the valve for the washers was leaking and siphoning the water out. Thought I would fix rather than isolate the headlight washers. Solution below, worked a treat...

  14. 159 Washers turn themselves on

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The washers on my 159 have begun to turn themselves on intermittently. To begin with it was just an occasional brief spurt but yesterday sittining in a traffic jam they were going off every 20 or 30 seconds. It stpooed when the washer bottle was empty, though I can still hear the pump motor...
  15. 156 washers have simply stopped

  17. Facelift 147 Headlamp Washers

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've ordered a pair of replacement headlamps; both of mine are broken in some way or another! I've ordered these separately but I'll have to get the dealer involved when it comes to fitting them as I really don't want to get into taking the bumper off etc. What I want to know is, while the...
  18. 159 headlamp washers

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The drivers side washers are barely working on my car. If you put your fingers over the passenger side ones more water comes out on the drivers side but still pretty weak. How easy is it to remove the nozzles? - there doesn't seem much to get hold of from the outside. If I can remove them &...
  19. window screen washers

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The window screen jets on the drivers side stopped working ,on inspection taking the cover under the bonnet lid it seems that the pipe connecting to the jets has come off and I can't see the pipe that goes on the jet. Anyone else had this problem? Thanks in anticipation
  20. 156 diesel injector washers missing

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello Just snapped the cam belt on my 2.4jtd and so started a strip down to see the damage. So far 12 rockers sacrificed. Not sure if to go further and take the head off yet to double check the valves. There's a few oil leaks, exhaust manifold never fitted correctly etc so might be brave and...
