  2. Need help finding ground: Electrical problem with wiper/horn alfa 147

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Guys, I am trying to repair my dear old friend, my alfa 147. The main problem is, that whenever I put the key in the ignition and turn it, my wipers turn on as well. They allways go on in the second speed (1 faster then intermittent wiping). Front and rear turn on. When I use the window...
  3. PIAA Silicone Wipers

    Alfa Giulia
    Anybody used these on the Giulia? I swear by these and had them on my last 3 cars, but they're not listed for the Giulia.
  4. Wipers!

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, 1.6 jtdm2 owner here. Slight, but serious issue. My wipers will raise to the top of the screen, but not come down again unless I push them. The motor is buzzing, but they will not go back down without a push. If I slightly push them when on full whack they will return to the bonnet and...
  5. Intermittent wipers

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All, My 2001 spider 2.0 ts seems to have a problem with it's wipers. They work fine on all the speeds but on intermittent it seems whatever setting I select on the wiper stalk the interval remains the same. Is this likely to be a problem with the stalk or the control module? Anyone else had...
  6. Happy Wipers - but what about the Blower?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    A couple of years back I replaced my heater matrix. Whilst reassembling everything, it looked as though the air con pipe union just behind the firewall was leaking slightly. Fast forward a couple of years, and my wipers have been playing up (not switching off, mostly) so today I followed the...
  7. Auto wipers

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Is there any way of deleting auto wipers on the GT through multiescan. Alternatively resetting sensor please?
  8. 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...
  9. 1750 GTV Wipers

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Gents, my wipers have stopped working. They don't work on the switch or wash/wipe. Which fuse should they be connected too? Does anyone have a diagram of the standard fuse layout that they could share please? I'm guessing it could be a connection somewhere so thought I'd start with that before...
  10. Are all wipers poor?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've just changed the wipers on my GTV for aero style ones and they are almost as poor as the originals - which failed to sweep all of the screen, particularly at speed. It's as if there isn't enough pressure to hold the blades onto the screen? What are everyone else's like? Is this a common...
  11. Wipers wiping when switching on ignition

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My phase 1 Spider has decided to give the windscreen two wipes when I switch on the ignition! And will then go to rest. All when the level is definitely in the "no wipe/stop" position. Thereafter everything seems to be fine with the wipers, at all speeds! I initially thought that this may have...
  12. 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...
  13. Brera front wipers

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I'm having an issue with the front wipers on my brera, the drivers side wiper doesn't seem to clear the screen at all. My first thought is that the culprit is the wiper blade so I go to check that and then find that the base of the arm doesn;t appear to be fixed in place. is there a way to...
  14. Vibration of wipers

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Sorry if this appeared before... Vibration of wipers appear in case of new, as well as old wipers, what is source of irritating noise and bad performance of windscreen cleaning. If you cut both edges of rubber of wipers (angle of 45°, pattern filled area on picture) vibrations disappear, even...
  15. The wipers creak Alfa GT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Alfa GT Wipers is creaking no matter of the weather cold or warm, wet or dry. Tried Bosch different models, valeo, etc etc. Same thing. On the first day it started to creak (from bottom deadzone of the working cycle for a one second, and every cycle. On the middle it is quiet and on top as well)...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  19. Correct installation plastic panel beneath wipers

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, My windshield got replaced lately due to a crack in the windshield. When I got the car back, I saw a little black piece of the plastic panel just beneath the wipers sticking out. I have marked the piece sticking out on the pic. This made me wonder: was the plastic panel installed back...
  20. Best replacement or upgrade wipers?

    Alfa Giulietta
    The original front wipers on my 2015 2.0 JTDM QV Line are in need of replacing. I've seen replacement rubber blades only (looked the my current blade unit and not sure just the blades can be replaced, plastic end caps look fused?) straight replacements (Valeo?) and all sorts of supposed...
