Hi Nathan
From the information at the following link a total of 500 units are to be made. Unknown whether any are earmarked for the Australian market but more than likely NO due to being LHD.

105/115 Series (105 Coupe/Spider/Berlina) / Re: Spider 1976 headrest size
« Last post by marcphil2 on February 26, 2021, 12:54:49 PM »
Thanks for the info JohnLW.  I am still waiting to hear from my inquiry to austcustomercare@fcagroup.com as well, to see if they have any records of mandated compliance, which possibly might still have been post your '72 delivery.

It just seems rather strange that my leather trimmer in '89 would have made them bigger for some reason, and since I don't recall them ever being smaller.

The smaller headrests certainly look great, so I don't mind modifying the inner material to match the ready made covers, but I am still curious if the larger headrests were a requirement for the 1976 (austerity) model.

Thanks everyone for your feedback and time.
I'll look at the link this evening and we'll get the car back tonight.
Hopefully the oil will do the trick.
Could be just a faulty sensor perhaps.

I have a 72 Spider (Aus delivered originally) and have just redone the headrests with a Classic Alfa cover set (seats will be done at the trimmers soon).  My headrests are the originals, and are definitely the smaller size you show in the pics.  The Classic Alfa covers fitted fine over the original foam innards, just needed a few minutes in the oven at 40C to make them pliable, and some massaging to fit them.  Otherwise no issue.  Ive yet to refit the plastic plates on the base (one has broken across the centre), but holding them in position it appears they will recess and fit OK.

Hi Jason
Find attached link to Alfa workshop "how to guide" on replacing Multi air actuator for your info. Further to the comments above in particular replacing oil might fix the problem, I would suggest also that replacing only the micro filter might avoid the need to replace the whole Multi air actuator system. No actual experience with this fix, but might be worth a go and save $$$$ in the process.

Any modern high tech engine is temperamental to the wrong oil or not being serviced properly.

As long as the oil is changed every 10,000 kms or less/12months & the correct spec oil is used the 1.4 MultiAir engine is a very reliable engine.

And a lot of fun too!  (As your daughter has no doubt found out already)  8)

Thanks guys, I'm based in Melbourne(Greenvale) and from what I've read it could be the oil I hope.
I know they're  temperamental and can't believe Alfa don't do individual parts.

Absolutely worst case budgeting info.. there is a 10% discount code (somewhere)

I see Bazz has you covered..
(I have no experience with the multiair, other than reading they are temperamental to the wrong oil)

If it is the MultiAir solenoid on Cyl #2 that is the problem sometimes changing the oil with fresh oil a couple of times over say 200 km of driving can occasionally rectify the issue, but the majority of the time a new MultiAir Actuator is required.

Unfortunately you can't replace the individual solenoid.

Where are you located?

Hi all,
Hope everyone's well.
I just wanted to get some advice on my daughter's 2013 Giulietta.
She's had it for a few months now(1st car) and the last few weeks the engine light has come on .
I've checked with a scanner and it's cylinder 2 valve within the multi air injection.
The thing that troubles me is that the car is running really well and the light might stay on for a day or two then disappear entirely.
Very intermittent.
It's currently at the mechanic for a service but in reading about this, you can't just replace one injector etc.
It's the whole thing.
I'm not a mechanic but I'm wondering if anyone's experienced this and is there a cheaper solution?
Appreciate any help I can get.
Thanks Jason
