Anyone know where I can get some of these?
They hold the chrome gutter rail on a 166 along the front screen.
I have tried to order (unsuccessfully) from EURO-FORIN

Have you tried your local Alfa-dealer?
.....no, I havn't. I can't imagine they would stock such things from 1998, I've tried the indie parts suppliers though.

Changed leaking heater matrix and repaired the drowned M83.

Both jobs were a pita.

Well it's the green box on the transmission tunnel behind the ICS - It's called the B883 60617164 Direction Indicators Control Unit; it gets corroded/wet when the heater matrix starts to leak... I know you can jumper it to get the tell-tale arrows working again, which I was going to do, but I didn't have any small male spade connectors so decided to have a go at repairing it, given there are none for sale anywhere I could find.

I desoldered the plug and one of the pins had rusted away completely, along with part of one of the tracks on the circuit board. so had to remake the track with a bit of wire, and run a wire from the spade connector in the connector block to a suitable place on the board as well.After resoldering the connector block back on it's all working fine and should stay that way in theory. So, cost about 20p in electric and solder to fix.

Some people say to cover it in a bag to stop it getting wet, but I don't really want to wrap it in something flammable! If it did short out it would presumably just fizz a bit, but I doubt I'd have a fire on my hands!
