  1. Electrical, Chassis & Lighting
    I am in the midst of troubleshooting my brake lights, but can't quite figure out how to get the plunger switch off. I found a video on YouTube that shows a metal clip, but mine doesn't seem to have that. It looks like I need to back out a threaded plastic rod, but there is a black electrical...
  2. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Around a year ago I was driving home from my brother's house and hit a pothole on the parkway. Immediately after hitting the pothole, I noticed I had footwell lights. Previous to this occurrence, I had no idea there were footwell lights in the car. As I easily gained footwell lights in my car...
  3. Stelvio
    Hi All, I recently purchased a pre-owned/exec driven 2019 Stelvio QF about 14k km's and I freaking love it. However, it has a major annoyance with the CCB's - they chirp/click on brake at low speeds almost all the time from front left wheel(right wheel some times) unless I modulate the brake...
  4. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hi.. I pulled this low mile spider out of storage to get back to excellent running shape. The front calipers were sticking, so had them rebuilt. When I reinstalled them, the brakes felt pretty good, but not amazing. (I have an 86 Quad as well to compare). I noticed a fluid drop, and looked...

  6. Car Restoration
    Hello everyone, I'm restoring a 1961 giulietta sprint veloce. I'm currently have issues with the parking brake system. It's to my understanding that the veloce had a different/altered backing plate as well as cables and floor mounts to make the system operate. My issue, I can't find any...

  8. Suspension, Steering, Brakes, Wheels & Tires
    Hi, I am now out of ideas trying to solve a very heavy metallic "knock" when I press the brakes hard and quick. If the car is rolling (slow or quick) there is the loud "knock" if i press hard and quick, if it's stationary there is no noise at all. The car drives very well and brakes ok...

    Hi, Can anyone confirm my suspicions before I fork out £350 for a new Master Cylinder... My Berlina 2000 RHD brakes were at the bottom of the pedal travel and not very effective OK to stop but not in a hurry.. so i have stripped the front calipers and installed new piston seals and dust seals...
  10. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hey everyone! So recently I have put in a full sport/race suspension build (Koni), full race exhaust, chassis stiffener, W rated tires/new rims, and other little things. However, it has come to my attention that my brakes lack modern standards, as they are still stock. I was wondering if any...

    I bought the brake line kit from centerline but when I received it, it appeared that the kit isn't right for my car. I know centerline is good with their parts so I am wondering if my car isn't a stock setup. The lines on my car are as follows. 1. Master cylinder bottom hole to front driver...

It's attached as a pdf document - no photos, I'm afraid, but it should make sense. If anyone has better info or advice, please post it & I can amend the...
  14. Milano/75 (1985-1993)
    I'm working in adapt this engine on my car. Althought everyone knows what we should do for adapt this engine, I preferred to modify the auxiliary components of the car and not change parts as the thermostat, the upper engine support, etc. Right now, my main problem is the flywheel. This is...

  16. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Since I'm rebuilding my front brake system, any suggestions on a brake product from Rock auto here: 1988 ALFA ROMEO SPIDER Brake Pad I'm leaning towards the Ferrodo's just because I saw IAP also sells them, just for more money, but I don't know much about brake types. Just that they exist...
  17. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I pulled off the wheels, and calipers and brakes. When I spin the two front rotors separately with the calipers removed, one of them makes a rubbing noise and comes to a halt much faster than the other. Could this be a bad wheel bearing or is there something else? Thanks, Rich 88 Spider
  18. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Alfisti: I was trying to replace the rear brake hose on my '71 Spider, and since all was grimy back there, I removed all components, including the brass union that is mounted on the differential housing, and to get rid of the grease, I soaked it in paint thinner. Then, I looked inside, and in...
  19. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Today I bleed my brakes for the first time. The old fluid was a dark brown and I would loose braking power after a few hard stops. The pedal before the bleed was always a little low and it seemed that I should have a bit more braking power. There was about a 1.5" dead zone that did nothing...
