  1. 164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, know this is a heathen question, but struggling to find 1" lowered rear springs that are not progressive wound. Know it's not ideal but has anyone ever just cut a coil off their standard springs to achieve this on a 164? I confess to once doing it on a Fiat, front and rear, and it worked...
  2. 164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, Have bought a set of adjustable dampers with lowered springs fitted, for a 24v 3.0 1994 164 manual Super. Front end is sitting a bit high as the rear springs are at least 30mm shorter than standard, so back goes down and fron, even though shortened springs, goes up. My idea of a fix is 20cm...
  3. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hi Guys, Last night my Spider would not start. When I ran the alternator test using my charger last night it told me alternator was bad (even running at 3-4k RPM). I ran a smart charger overnight and had it at full power this morning. This afternoon I was checking the connections around the...
  4. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hi, I have a nagging problem that I can't seem to resolve. If I apply power to the wiper motor switch, it drains the battery overnight. I just put on a new switch, and finally figured out the whole Off, Slow, Fast issue, but it doesn't seem to fix the battery drain issue. This is truly...
  5. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hi and thanks in advance! My 1990 Spider Veloce was broken into a few weeks ago. Since then any time I initiate any use of power (opening a door, touching the brake) the flashers go off --including the dash lights --for about 20-25 blinks. If I don't do anything else it all shuts off so it's...
  6. 164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    This is a very basic problem and not 164-specific other than the fact that the battery I'm having a problem with is currently in my 164. The battery charges up OK over a usual length of time - gassing is evident at the end of the charge, and the battery holds a terminal voltage of 12.6 volts...
  7. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I posted this on alfaowner.com, but will try here too. On my 1979 Spider Veloce, I recently instituted the recommended fix to my hazard switch which had gone wonky and drained my battery (with the cover on the car, I did not notice that the flashers were on for a week). I inserted the tiny...
  8. Alfa Romeo Topics Not Covered Elsewhere
    Hi- I'm a newbie and am looking at getting a Spider. (Doing some research here before I pull the trigger.) So I'm short. :D 5"1' without a particularly long torso - I'm pretty evenly split. Will I be able to see over the dash? I'm going to test drive a 1982 Spider this weekend (1982 Alfa...
