  1. Adjusting the headlights on my 159

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi! Does somebody know how to adjust the hights of the low beam on a 159? The right side points way too low and the left side is normal. Haven't realized it until I changed the low beams to h7 xenon. I have checked that the bulb is firmly in place. I tried to turn the long bolt coming from the...
  2. Where to buy a 159 Xenon Headlamp Cable

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Does anyone know where I can buy a couple of xenon (D1S) headlamp to ECU / Ballast cables from - ideally in the UK, mine are fried :-( I think the factory fitted 159 xenons use the same AL / Bosch ECU as some Audi's & BMW's? Thanks!
  3. Alfa 159 - both dipped beam lights stopped working?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Both dipped beam (xenon) lights have stopped working on my 2006 2.4 JTDM. Drivers side started to fail - but would work if you manually flipped the switch on the stalk a few times, followed by the passenger side a few days later. These were straight failures - no flickering as I've read...
  4. 159 Xenon Ballast

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all. Seems that the ballast on the drivers side (factory fit) xenon's needs replacing. Before I trawl eBay and risk buying from somewhere in Europe before Brexit(!), anyone of you know anybody breaking a 159 with working xenon ballast or a reliable source of working second hand units...

  8. No light from Xenon headlight

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Anyone have had any experience with the xenon headlight going bad? It's not the bulb as I've just replaced it and it's still not working. Are there any other parts in a xenon unit that wear down and need replacing every so often? Or is each headlights on a separate fuse and should I check the...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I'm opening this post to get some help and also to collect information from various sources to help upcoming forumers. My 2004 156 Ti has OEM Xenon headlights. The previous owner put a metal plate underneath the car that "pushes" (let's rather say it even bends...:disappointed: ) the linkage...

  14. Best Headlight Bulbs for 147 recommendation?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, My Headlight's are incredibly dim on my 2001 147 and I'm pretty certain they are decent enough ones. They've been on there a while though. At least they are lasting! These days a lot of cars seem to have their full beam lights on but it turns out they are just bright headlights...

    Alfa Giulia
    I have the 25w Xenons on my Veloce. I nipped into town today and when I was walking back to the car, the sun was low in the sky and shining directly at the front of the car. As I got closer to the car I noticed some kind of distortion in the headlight lenses. On closer inspection both lenses...

  17. Alfa 159 Xenon levelling sensor

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Whilst repairing a leak on my washer bottle I noticed a broken plastic lever which was attached via a drop link to the top wishbone. On further inspection it looked like some sort of switch. I was having my tyres changed and I asked the bloke who told me it was a levelling sensor for the...
