  1. Corner windscreen trim

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Not your usual post. My N/S corner windscreen trim needed replacing and ordered that from Alfa Workshop and fitted it fine. The little D shaped cap that covers the screw that joins it to the centre trim is missing. ( Part number 156068743 ) I contacted Alfa who said they do not keep that part in...
  2. Intermittent windscreen washer motor

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 159 SW washer motor had a bizarre problem When I pull the stalk towards me I get a small squirt (1/4 second motor sound), then nothing if I hold the stalk in. If I release it and try again a couple of seconds later I get another small squirt. Eventually I have enough water to mostly clear...
  3. FCW Message and replacement windscreen!!!

    Alfa Giulia
    So I have been getting a message recently about the FCW system not working and to check the front camera, FCW still seems to operate as I do get the occasional warning when some muppet crosses my path too close, but I can't select Lane Departure warning, just comes up as not available even...
  4. Water on side windows from windscreen

    Alfa Stelvio
    As any Stelvio owner must have noticed by now, any water on the windscreen streams off onto the drivers side door window and obscures vision to the mirror if it is closed, or soaks said driver if you happen to have the window open. Anyone had any success with redirecting water or making it...
  5. Broken windscreen

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The wife, driving to work in the Spider on Monday a stone (?) hit the windscreen, I've never seen a screen crack like this before. You can just see the point of impact in the centre of the crack.
  6. 164 needs new windscreen

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Just to put a cap on a bad weekend I got a stone chip. Drove up to Leicester for a car show on Sunday, needless to say it was a no go thanks to the weather. But she ran beautifully with the refurbished clutch cylinder doing its thing on some very nice (If a little damp) roads as the gearbox...
  7. Missing seal after Windscreen change

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all... I have a 2010 Alfa Romeo GT, which had the unfortunate luck to have a windscreen replaced with its previous owner. I noticed when I'm driving with 140km/h there's a bit of wind noise, so I started an investigation. No leaks or air coming through, but I did notice there's a seal...
  8. Alfa 166 - Blowing air just on windscreen and doors glass

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Is a weird problem for me. It never worked, but now because is summer and hot af, I need my AC. I have a problem and my ICS says "AC faulty, please contact workshop". I maybe know what's the problem, where the relays are located in engine compartiment (pre fl model), my AC fuse is blowned up...
  9. windscreen wipers compatibility

    Alfa 145 & 146
    hi! as many of you know, alfa romeos 145/6 till 1997 (I think), like mine, had different windscreen wipers. these were custom made by fiat, and the only detachable piece was the rubber blade. btw, which are pretty hard to find in some places. on later models, alfa romeo adopted the quick clip...
  10. New windscreen rubber

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Any one replaced their window rubber lately? I've had my screen in and out a few times over the past couple of years and its an easy refit...(its getting warn).. Once the car is painted it may be wise to fit a new rubber? Will it be a pig to fit? and are they decent quality/fit from the...

  12. Windscreen for a Ph1 Spider - advice pls

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Dear Alfa hive mind.... So the MOT station has said that the single foot long crack in my windscreen isn't ever going to be a pass. Fair call. I need to replace the screen. Anyone have a used one? And any advice on removing the old and fitting a new one? thanks! vl 159
  13. Windscreen swirl marks?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all! My windscreen is marred with a lot of swirl marks, and I'm wondering if any of you have had this problem and how you fixed it? It's not impossible to see out of, but it's definitely distracting at certain times of day and at night, and I'm wondering if this can get sorted as a DIY job.
  14. Windscreen Trim Screw Cover Source

    Alfa GTA
    Hi all, 147 GTA. At some point I've lost one of the caps that covers the screw which holds the plastic cover on over the wiper motor. No idea what the part is specifically called and a google search has not proved fruitful. The remaining one has a small clips on the underside so not sure how...
  15. Alfa Romeo 916 WindScreen Wipers and Outside temperature

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Gents Hello, I have two questions in case somebody can provide some short of suggestions. Of course I am referring to a spider/gtv model 2000. 1) The windscreen wipers have an interrupted operation mode where they work stop for a a couple of second and work again and so on. I find that this...
  16. How is a new genuine windscreen packaged?

    South Africa
    I'm about to order a new genuine AR windscreen for my V6 Spider to replace the generic one it's currently got. I don't want to install it straight away because I'd like to get the windscreen frame resprayed first. Does anyone know how a new windscreen comes packaged from the dealer? Ideally I'd...

  18. 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...
  19. Second broken Giulia windscreen

    Alfa Giulia
    That's two in 13 months (18000 miles) and 3 separate cracks in my Amarok pick-up in 3 years (actually 4 but one was a branch falling from a tree - so that was understandable). This is a fairly recent phenomenon for me, are they getting thinner/weaker, maybe to save weight.
  20. GTV windscreen delamination?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've got a couple of places on my windscreen that don't look like 'traditional delamination' so not a cloudy patch but I'm struggling to think what else these two patches could be. They're at the top and bottom of the screen on the same side. Are GTV windscreens known for this? Is it repairable...
