  1. What to grab from a junked '95 LS?

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    So you're saying '93+ the spindle is larger? Odd that the change was made one year before the facelift. It's in my list.
  2. What to grab from a junked '95 LS?

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Yes, 24V, so I'll keep it in mind. I know at least one of the 12V cam belt covers is NLA - maybe they all are by now. Thanks for the additional ideas - just need to wait for a moderately warm day to return.
  3. What to grab from a junked '95 LS?

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Both side mirrors didn't stay set in one spot - they readily moved back and fourth. Not sure if that might be an easy fix or not. Plus, the driver side mirror glass is broken. Is the glass shared with anything more commonly available? I thought I had recalled reading that the calipers were...
  4. What to grab from a junked '95 LS?

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Lots of good input - thanks Michael. Any of the interior stuff is likely not worth the bother. I'll post a pic or two later and you'll understand better. The headlights are the same as the 12V cars, yes? I like the look of the 12V bumpers better than the later 24V cars, so I'll probably leave...
  5. What to grab from a junked '95 LS?

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Thanks for the input. I'm just now looking at the pics of the car and the metal trim seems to all be there. I'd have no use for that myself and it's the type of thing I'd hate to store and hate to ship. But if someone needed it, feel free to drop me a PM. The electrical stuff would certainly...
  6. What to grab from a junked '95 LS?

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    I've got the opportunity to pull some parts from a junked '95 5-speed. It's in a rather sad state, having sat outside for ~15 years. At some point a tree fell on it, crushing the back window and leaving the interior exposed to the elements. As such, anything from the interior is pretty much...
  7. Carpet Dye

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    10+ years later, I just now went looking for this thread. No surprise, I still haven't re-dyed my 164 carpet - maybe in 2020? The link Jason supplied is now dead. Is that product gone, or just the link? Is SEM Carpet & Vinyl Dye the right stuff nowadays?
  8. Uugh, Hooked up battery backwards - no start

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    You were on to something here. I put the DVOM on the battery and it read 11.9x volts. Hmmm, that won't start an engine even if everything else IS okay. So I charged up the battery. Several hours later, came back and started up the car! Checked the voltage output while running and it was...
  9. Uugh, Hooked up battery backwards - no start

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    First, let me say that yes, I am an idiot. But here's the story... I had my 164 in the driveway (blocking my other garaged cars) and needed to briefly steal the battery from it yesterday to start my truck. This morning, the fire alarm goes off and I need to respond, quickly realize I need to...
  10. license plate from the 90's for my car?

    NYAROC - New York Alfa Romeo Owners Club
    Interesting. So they specifically approved running a single plate because that year only a single plate was issued? Is there anything on the registration that indicates accordingly? I say that since I imagine at some point you'll be stopped and the officer won't otherwise have a clue...
  11. RWD Conversion

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Looks a little rough, but hey it works. Any idea what sort of drive-train is in there?
  12. 12v Euro cam pulley belt upgrade.

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    I did not. More $$ than I wanted to spend.
  13. 12v Euro cam pulley belt upgrade.

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    PM sent....
  14. no 6 speed for US

    Giulia (2017-current)
    What about importing a gearbox (and other required bits) from a wrecked Euro car? Or do the software issues get too big with today's cars?
  15. Replace old EV1 injectors with new EV6 injectors and E85-proof the 164

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    What size injectors are used on the Spider? Find that out and then search for an injector of the same size (or nearly so) on a more modern vehicle.
  16. Sunroof Stuck in "Up" Position

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    There doesn't seem to be any physical binding of the mechanism. When I have gotten the sunroof to move, it's done so in a smooth manner. I was finally able to get the roof back in place via the switch, so for now, I've disconnected the connector and put the control panel back in place...
  17. Sunroof Stuck in "Up" Position

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Oh, right! In fact, your post reminded me that I had removed one of these panels at the junkyard and had it in my parts stash. So I go find it, install it, and bam! The sunroof comes down. I then proceed to fully open and close it, and then try popping up the back, only to have it get stuck...
  18. Sunroof Stuck in "Up" Position

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Thanks for the input. I haven't yet had a chance to grab the service manual, but it would seem that the control panel assembly comes down along with the headliner, yes? I have been meaning to re-do my headliner. Perhaps it's time.
  19. Sunroof Stuck in "Up" Position

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    I opened my sunroof in the flip-up position yesterday. Probably the first time had done that in years, and I've been treated accordingly for that, with it now stuck in that position. Thoughts on whether it's most likely a mechanical or electrical issue?
