I've parted out 6 or 7 Alfetta coupes and GTV6s(they both use the same interior light fixtures) and it's next to impossible to extract the old interior light fixtures without breaking one or more of the four tangs that hold the fixture in place. In addition the plastic switches tend to fall apart from age If you are missing the fixtures entirely I think I have some slightly broke fixtures that will fill the cavity and look right but won't work. Highwood Alfa in England sells new fixtures with the chrome covers(Highwood part# 96911) for $63.50 each. Highwood sells all sorts of new bits for Alfettas and GTV6s that have never been sold by US vendors. Another possible source for used fixtures could be Alfa Parts Exchange.

Jim,

I have both, both were working intermittently, one came out cleanly, I cleaned the contacts and fixed the indeterminacy, when I pulled
the drivers side out it exploded in my hand, I found some in Italy with the chrome trim, is that chrome trim removable? I also have a PM
from a guy in Detroit who says he has some. $63.50 is to much for me, I have gotten stuff in the past from Highwood, I will keep you in
mind, thank you!

There was a fix/substitution to these courtesy lights discussed many, many moons ago on the 'BB. In fact I purchased a pair off eBay I think... involves a slight bit of surgery to fit, but you get brand new, fresh parts. Not exactly orignal, but nice replacement and easy replaceable bulbs moving forward. Getting used OEM lights - 30+ years old... they are all brittle, and you will eventually be looking for replacement parts once again. Unfortunately, my parts are buried deep in my parts storage room so no pictures, and I can't find any associated emails concerning their purchase. But a search here on the forum should eventually bring up that thread.... if others involved don't produce the link in kind.

I bought these a few years ago: https://www.amazon.com/Convenience-C...2497155&sr=1-4

The opening in the B-pillar had to be slightly enlarged. Once installed they look similar to stock GTV6 lights and work like the originals.

Hi All fellow Alfetta GTV owners

I posted many years ago,,,,that I used Alfa 33 interior light switches from 1984-1988
Looks good and work great.
Fitted LED globes and a huge improvement.
Just another option.

Object number: 150937693849

The seller confirmed me that they are riproductions.
I have no connection with the seller, only try to help.
