  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Calling all Sportwagon owners, how do you remove the tailgate trim panel which covers the rear wiper motor? I removed 8 screws (I think it was 8) but it appears to be secured by some plastic clips, possibly the christmas tree type? Whatever they are they're bloody strong as gave up thinking I...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My wiper mechanism has been threatening to give up recently (I think it's the motor), thankfully the parts shed has come to the rescue as I managed to get one from Partsworld a while back. The part I bought was GTA specific if you're interested although I'm not sure what the difference is -...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I recently started having problems with the wiper on my Alfa 156, 1.9jtd 2003 model (facelift interior). I purchased a 2nd hand one from the scrappers from a similar car and although the motors are identical physically, the plugs seem to be different. Mine is a squarish plug with 6...

    Hi, Does anybody know which colour the wire for the rear window wiper is or does anybody have a wire diagram? I think it is broken in the loom, but it's easier to fix, if I know what I am looking for... Thanks...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I bought my first Alfa this week, several times over the weekend the windscreen wipers have stopped working and won't start again until I turn off the engine and restart the car. Any ideas anyone. It's been an awful weekend for rain here in South Wales and this is a very dangerous issue...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    2 more questions for you more experienced owners. My rear wiper comes on as soon as I engage reverse - whether its raining or not. Very annoying, is this normal? Also, is this normal or is it just my music system? This is not exact as I'm not sat in the car but I'd take a guess that volume...
  7. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I have fitted a new wiper motor in an attempt to sort out single speed (fast) operation and no parking function. New motor is fitted and moves the wipers nice and smoothly in the correct arc however: 1. Parking function parks them halfway up the screen. If I disconnect the wash/wipe foot switch...

    Hi all, My 2012 giulietta's rear wiper is not stopped in the right position and it will start when starting car or switching between gear. Any ideas? Thank you.

  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, After doing a Google search, it turns out that the wiper linkage on the right hand side of Alfa Romeo 147s is a particular weak spot. Rather that replace my broken wiper linkage with a new or second hand unit, I thought I’d have a go at repairing it. Following are the steps I used to...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Good afternoon All, it's time to change the blades for my spider. At today I've some standard Bosch wiper blades where the previous owner tied with a plastic band the water nozzles. Do you have any suggest where to find something better? Anyone is using "aerodinamic" blades? Thanks for your...
  15. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi! I don't really know how to explain this... the rear wiper seems to have a mind on its own. When I put the key in the socket, rear wiper goes twice over the window, and then continues about 1/3 the way more. Basically goes to one side, comes back, then moves to stop at a random spot on the...
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I replaced my wiper arms after seeing the dreaded wear mark on the driver side wiper and the proverbial paint chip on the bonnet edge, the wiper mechanism seemed okay. As soon as I replaced them, the driver side arm caught the bonnet immediately which was a tad annoying!! So, after some...
  17. Alfa Giulietta
    Well collected car today they changed rear wiper motor but erratic operation remained,BCM ordered (funnily enough I told them BCM 3 weeks ago) fitted and coded now it works exactly as designed. However on way home I stopped at petrol station for screen wash as that was left empty,opened boot to...
  18. Alfa MiTo
    Hi all. Alfa MiTo SBK 2013, arrived from UK a few days ago. The rear screen wiper and the Start/Stop function do not work. I read here that it could be related to low battery voltage (the car took 3 weeks to arrive in a ship plus a week or so at the shipping company) so I fully charged the...
  19. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, Will know more later tonight as to which part(s) are specifically required but I've been quoted £125-425 :disappointed: for a passenger (near) side wiper repair (spindle v all through to the motor iirc) using Alfa original parts. Is anyone breaking an 09 compatible 159 that could...
  20. Alfa MiTo
    Every time I switch on the ignition the rear wiper cycles several times and comes to a stop in random places regardless of what position the wiper switch is in. If I activate it via the switch on the stalk it works but only in continuous mode, never intermittent. When reversing in the rain it...
