I always find you should always have the back straight up to stop it hurting...maybe try that for a while.

Typical of the myths on the internet: "147 seats area a straight swap" Listen, I thought that too until I discovered yesterday afternoon something quite different. They are nowhere near a straight fit. In fact, forget it! The seats rails are much wider apart. Even if you thought you can get one side of the rails bolted the bolt holes don't even line up lol! Finally, the seats are so high that they touch the steering wheel. We're all experts on the internet eh? Lol!

Just saying.

you win the prize for this month's most obscure-thread-resurrection, Ganz!

so high they touch the steering wheel!!

That's mental- everything about the 147 is more complicated I think


INCLUDING the info-telematics; WHERE are the pictures, Ganz- the public can't get enough?!!!

I had to resurrect this thread for the sake of future forum members.

I'm near breaking point with the sillyspeed rant.gif The local residents are now complaining that this 147 is blocking access to their wheely bins and I need to move it by Saturday otherwise the whole village is gonna torch it! I'm spending shed loads of money(lockup rental fees) on it and have to spend even more with the purchase of some wheel dollys to move it back to the lockup compound if I manage to squeeze it past the iron gates without smashing the side of the car into the gates. There's something about Alfas though and I just cannot scrap it. Its got Momo leather interior and the multispoke wheels, factory lowered and the info-telematics!!! Come on man! How could I not keep it!!

Life was so simple when I had s**t cars that i took to the scrap dealers who actually gave me money for them. There was no attachment to those sad beasts at all.

are you saying this is a total non-runner?

Is the robotised-gearbox the problem??

Well, I tried a whole list of things I thought might get that gearbox working.

Internet advice:

I made sure there was two gallons of petrol in the tank as I read on the internet that it won't even crank the engjne over unless it's got loads of petrol.

Stomped on brake pedal for three minutes before trying to fire up the engine.

Connecting a direct earth feed to the Selespeed pump.

Swapped the 50amp Selespeed relay with the Aircon one which is also 50amp and same circuits.

Hit the pump with a lump hammer to free the seized carbon motor bushes.

Well none of the above worked. When I open the driver's door the pump does not prime. It's still stuck in first gear so cannot push it. Finally because I can't get the electronic gearbox to work the engine refuses the crank over. Robotised gearboxes.. what a nightmare concept.

One final thing i'm gonna try is to put the original 50 amp relay back in without its cover and push the contacts together to see if the pump works at all. To be honest I'm not so sure I want a gearbox that could do this but would love to get it going.
