The electrically controlled door mirror on my Giulietta has developed an irritating rattle. Before I tear into it, I wonder if anyone has had one apart? It doesn't look obvious how to attack it. Any suggestions welcome.

Does anyone have one of these for sale or know where I may get one? Fingers crossed.
My gtv and Giulietta had this feature, there is a timer in the dash normally the capacitors fail causing the delay to stop working this relay mechanism is easily rebuilt if you know some basic soldering and electronics

This one is only for those that have 30 minutes of your time to invest. I know your probably thinking FIAT but yeah it was Gianni that bought Alfa Romeo from the Italian state in the 1980's. So, go get your cup of coffee strap in for 30 minutes and enjoy "La Doce Vita in Italy during his life.  What a guy, what a life.
There is a guy in Perth who does fibreglass ones and has them airbrushed in wood look like original>

That Kiwi hose cannot be the correct one. It's gold platted which explains the price.

Go the Baz route. Get 2 hoses of approximate bend, shape and length. Trim to make correct length. Install a joiner with 2 hose clamps. Job done for the price of a packet of corn flakes.

Red 159 for sale, running well and working fine in all aspects, 205,000km. Replaced alternator, air-cond compressor, lower control arms and power steering hoses. Fully serviced and maintained per Alfa requirements since purchase at 157,000km, service history since delivery in book as well. A few minor imperfections in the paint work as you would expect for a 16yo car, but otherwise VG condition. Purchased as son's first car, selling due to him upgrading.
NSW registration for 5 months. Based in Canberra area. $5500, negotiable.

WinRun awesome brand name. Why not make it better and call them Happy Round Things perhaps Rim Air Riders, Rim Jackets, no I am going to settle for BMD's (Black Mag Donuts).
The public reviews are about as constant as the Melbourne weather. Arthur is Martha, Martha was Arthur but recently both Arthur and Martha have had a blow out and you would have to tread very carefully when doing your paper round near their territory..

Places like Supercheap have bins full of all sorts or radiator & cooling hoses, I'm sure one could find something there that could be altered to fit. I've done it
with 147 upper hoses, so one should be able to do so for a 159.
