SYMBOLS
THE ALFA ROMEO
CODE SYSTEM
Special coloured labels have been attached
near to or actually on some of the components making up your Alfa 147. These
labels bear symbols that remind you of the
precautions to be taken as regards that particular component. A summary list of the
symbols (fig.1) is to be found under the
bonnet.
A0A1000m
KEYS
To increase protection against attempted
theft, the car is fitted with an electronic engine lock system (Alfa Romeo CODE) which
is activated automatically when the key is
removed from the ignition. In fact the grip
of each key contains an electronic device
which modulates the radio frequency signal
transmitted when the engine is started by a
special aerial incorporated in the ignition
switch. This modulated signal is the “password” by which the control unit recognises
the key and only in this condition can the
engine be started.
The car is delivered with a key with metal insert (upon request for models/markets
where required) and a key with remote control. For models/markets where required
two keys with remote control can be provided.
KEY WITHOUT REMOTE CONTROL
(for versions/markets
where applicable)
The fixed metallic insert A-fig. 2 operates:
– the ignition switch;
– the driver’s door lock;
A0A0736m
– the passenger’s Air bag deactivation (upon request for versions/markets where applicable);
– the fuel filler cap lock.
IMPORTANT In order to ensure perfect
efficiency of the electronic devices contained
inside the keys, they should never be directly
exposed to the rays of the sun.

OPERATION
Each time the ignition key is turned to the
STOP position the Alfa Romeo CODE system
deactivates the functions of the engine electronic control unit.
Each time the car is started turning the ignition key to MAR, the Alfa Romeo CODE
control unit sends a recognition code to the
engine control unit to deactivate the inhibitor. The code is crypted and variable between over four billion possible combinations, and it is sent only if the system control unit has recognised the code transmitted from the key which contains an electronic transmitter, through an aerial wound
around the ignition switch.
Pagina 9
If the code has not been recognised correctly, the Alfa Romeo CODE warning light
(Y) on the cluster turns on.
In this case, the key should be moved to
the STOP position and then back to MAR;
if the lock continues, possibly try again with
the other key provided with the car. If it is
still not possible to start the car, follow the
instructions given in the “In an emergency”
chapter and then contact Alfa Romeo Authorised Services.
IMPORTANT Every key has its own
code, which must be memorised by the system control unit. To memorise new keys, up
to a maximum of eight, apply solely to Alfa Romeo Authorised Services taking with
you all the keys in your possession, the
CODE card, a personal identity document
and the car’s ownership documents.
The codes of any keys not
presented during the memorising procedure are
erased. The reason for this is to ensure that any lost or stolen keys
cannot be used to start the engine.
IMPORTANT Turning on of the Alfa
Romeo CODE warning light (Y) when travelling with the ignition key at MAR:
GETTING TO KNOW YOUR CAR
001-057 Alfa 147 Q2 GB
1) If the warning light turns on, this means
that the system is running a self-test (for example for a voltage drop). At the first stop,
it will be possible to test the system: switch
off the engine turning the ignition key to
STOP; then turn the ignition key to MAR:
the warning light turns on and should go off
in about one second. If the warning light
stays on, repeat the procedure described previously leaving the key at STOP for over
30 seconds. Should the inconvenience persists, contact Alfa Romeo Authorised Services.

2) For versions without the reconfigurable
multifunction display, the flashing of the
warning light means that the car is not protected by the engine inhibitor device. This
condition for cars with reconfigurable multifunction display is shown by the turning on
of the warning light together with the display of the message: “CODE SYSTEM NOT PROGRAMMED”. Contact Alfa Romeo Authorised
Services immediately to have all the keys
memorised.
If after about 2 seconds
with the ignition key at
MAR, for versions without
reconfigurable multifunction display, the Alfa Romeo CODE warning light (Y) turns on again flashing, or for versions with reconfigurable multifunction display, the
warning light turns on again together with the message “CODE
SYSTEM NOT PROGRAMMED”, this
means that the code of the keys
has not been stored, therefore the
car is not protected by the Alfa
Romeo CODE system against attempted theft. In this case contact
Alfa Romeo Authorised Services to
have the key codes stored.

ELECTRONIC ALARM
DESCRIPTION
The system comprises: a transmitter, receiver, control unit with siren and volumetric sensors. The electronic alarm is controlled
by the receiver incorporated in the instrument cluster and it is turned on and off by
the remote control in the key which sends
the crypted and variable code. The electronic
alarm controls: the unlawful opening of
doors, bonnet and boot (perimetral protection), operation of the ignition key, battery
cable cutting, the presence of moving bodies in the passenger compartment (volumetric protection), any abnormal raising/sloping of the car (for versions/markets where applicable) and central door locking. It also makes it possible to cut off the
volumetric protection.
Pagina 11
REQUEST FOR ADDITIONAL
KEYS WITH REMOTE CONTROL
The receiver can recognise up to 5 keys
with incorporated remote control. Should a
new key with remote control be necessary
for any reason during the life of the car, contact directly Alfa Romeo Authorised Services,
taking with you the CODE card, a personal
identity document and the car’s ownership
documents.
ACTIVATING THE ALARM
With the doors, bonnet and boot shut and
the ignition key in the STOP or PARK position (key removed), point the key with the
remote control in the direction of the car, then
press and release the button (C-fig. 6).
With the exception of certain markets, the
system sounds a “beep” and the doors are
locked.
Engagement of the alarm is preceded by
a self-diagnosis phase characterised by a
change in the frequency at which the deterrent led (A-fig. 7) on the dashboard
flashes. If an anomaly is detected the system gives off a furter beep.
IMPORTANT The engine inhibitor function is guaranteed by the Alfa Romeo CODE
system which is activated automatically
when the ignition key is removed.

– if the led continues flashing, but at different intervals than normal, this means that
different attempts to break in have occurred.
Through the number of flashes it is possible to identify the type of attempt:
1 flash:
one or more doors
2 flashes:
tailgate
3 flashes:
bonnet
4 flashes:

and siren
9 flashes:
at least three causes of
alarm.
Pagina 13
WHEN THE ALARM
IS TRIGGERED
When the system is on, the alarm comes
into action in the following cases:
– opening of one of the doors, bonnet or
tailgate;
– disconnection of the battery or sectioning of electric cables;
– intrusion in the passenger compartment,
for example breakage of windows (volumetric protection);
– attempt to start the engine (key in
MAR position);
– abnormal car lifting/sloping (for versions/markets where applicable).
Depending on the markets, the cutting in
of the alarm causes operation of the siren
and hazard warning ligths (for about 26 seconds). The ways of operating and the number of cycles may vary depending on the
markets.
A maximum number of cycles is however
envisaged.
Once the alarm cycle has ended, the system resumes its normal control function.
VOLUMETRIC PROTECTION
To make sure that the protection system
works correctly the side windows and sunroof (if fitted) must be properly shut.
The function can be cut off (if, for example, leaving animals in the car) carrying out
the following operations in rapid succession:
starting from the condition with the ignition key at MAR, move the key to STOP,
then immediately back to MAR and then
to STOP again, then remove the ignition
key.
The deterrent led (A-fig. 7) on the dashboard lights up for about 2 seconds to confirm that the function has been cut off.
GETTING TO KNOW YOUR CAR
001-057 Alfa 147 Q2 GB
To restore volumetric protection, move the
and keep the ignition key at MAR for over
30 seconds.
If, with the volumetric protection function
deactivated, an electric control controlled by
the ignition key at MAR (e.g. power windows) turn the ignition key to MAR, operate the control and move the key to
STOP in a maximum time of 30 seconds.
This way volumetric protection is not restored.

the headrest up or down until it clicks into
place.
IMPORTANT The configuration of the
headrest cushion may vary depending on
the versions and markets. The purpose of
the illustration is only to show how it is adjusted.
WARNING
Remember that the head restraints must be positioned
so that they are supporting the back
of the head and not the neck. They
will only be able to provide effective
protection in the event of a collision
if they are in this position.

REAR SEATS
The car upholstery can resist wear resulting from
the normal use of the car.
However, it is necessary to avoid
excessive and/or prolonged friction with clothing accessories such
as metal buckles, studs, velcro and
similar material, as this friction,
acting locally and with a high pressure over the knitted fabric, may
cause some threads to break and
thus damage the seat cover/lining.

EXTENDING THE
LUGGAGE COMPARTMENT
Removing the rear parcel shelf
The split of rear seat makes it possible to
extend the luggage compartment totally or
partially, acting separately on one of the two
parts, thereby offering different possibilities
of load depending on the number of rear
passengers.
– free the ends of the two rods (A-fig.
20) supporting the parcel shelf (B) pulling
the eyelets (C) off the pins (D);
WARNING
If a particularly heavy load
is placed in the boot, when
travelling at night, it is wise to
check the height of the high beams
(see “Headlamps” paragraph).
Proceed as follows:
– release the pins (A-fig. 21) at the outside of the shelf from their housings (B) obtained in the side supports, then remove the
shelf pulling it outwards.
Once the shelf beneath the rear window
has been removed, it can be arranged in two
ways:
– across in the luggage compartment as
illustated in fig. 22;
– across between the front seat backs and
the tilted cushions of the rear seats when
the luggage compartment is completely extended (see fig. 26).

SEAT BELTS
WARNING
Never press button (C)
when travelling.
USING THE SEAT BELTS
The belt should be worn keeping the chest
straight and rested against the seat back.
Fasten the belt by inserting the tab
(A-fig. 40) into the clip (B), until hearing the locking click.
Through the reel, the belt automatically
adapts to the body of the passenger wearing it, allowing freedom of movement.
At removal, if it jams, let it rewind for a
short stretch, then pull it out again without
jerking.
When the car is parked on a steep slope
the reel mechanism may block; this is normal. The reel mechanism prevents the weebing coming out when it is jerked or if the
car brakes sharply, in a collision or when cornering at high speed.
To unfasten the seat belts, press button (C).
Guide the seat belt with your hand while it
is rewinding, to prevent it from twisting.
Rear seat belts shall be worn as shown in
fig. 41.
IMPORTANT The centre rear seatbelt is
installed on request only for versions/markets on which it is required.

WARNING
After putting the backrest
into its normal position after tilting, make sure the seat belts
are positioned correctly for use .
WARNING
The correct locking of the
backrest is ensured by the
disappearance of the “red band”
(B-fig. 42) on the backrest tilting
levers (A). If the “red band” is still
visible it means that the backrest
is not correctly locked. When
restoring its normal using position
make sure you hear the backrest
click into position.
WARNING
Check that the backrest is
correctly locked on both
side (“red bands” (B-fig. 42) not
visible) to prevent the backrest
from tilting and injuring passengers.
WARNING
Remember that in the event
of an accident, any passengers occupying the rear seats who
are not wearing a seat belt not only subject themselves to great personal risk, but constitute a danger
to the occupants of the front seats.

FRONT SEAT BELT HEIGHT
ADJUSTMENT
(upon request for versions/markets
where applicable)
The height of the seat belt attachment
should always be adjusted to suit the height
of the person wearing the seat belt. This precaution makes it possible to improve the efficiency of the seat belt which greatly reduces
the risk of injury in the event of an accident.
The correct adjustment is obtained when
the belt passes about half way between the
tip of the shoulder and the neck.
A0A0419m

The ring attached to the front seat belts
can be moved to several positions allowing
the belts to be adjusted.
To adjust the attachment, raise or lower
the grip (A-fig. 43) of the locking device,
at the same time moving the ring (B) to the
most appropriate of the allowed positions.
WARNING
The height of the seat belts
shall always be adjusted
with the car stationary.
WARNING
After adjustment, always
check that the slider (B-fig.
43) is anchored in one of the positions provided. To do this, with
the grip (A-fig. 43) released, exert a further pressure to allow the
anchor device to catch if release did
not take place at one of the preset positions.
LOAD LIMITERS
To increase passive safety, the front seat
belt reels contain a load limiter which allows
controlled sag in such a way as to dose the
force acting on the shpulder during the belt
restraining action.
4-07-2008
11:58
PRE-TENSIONING DEVICES
To increase the efficiency of the front seat
belts, the car is fitted with pre-tensioning devices. These devices “feel” that the car is
being subject to a violent impact by way of
a sensor and rewind the seat belts a few
centimetres. In this way they ensure that
the seat belt adheres to the wearer before
the restraining action begins.
The seat belt locks to indicate that the pretensioner has intervened; the seat belt cannot be drawn back up even when guiding
it manually.
IMPORTANT The pretensioner will give
maximum protection when the seat belt adheres snugly to wearer’s chest and hips.
A small amount of smoke may be produced. This smoke is in no way toxic and
presents no fire hazard.
Pagina 31
The pretensioner needs no maintenance or
lubrication. Any modification to its original
features will nullify the retractor’s effectiveness. If, due to unusual natural events
(floods, high waves, etc.), the device has
been affected by water and mud, it must be
replaced.
WARNING
Pre-tensioning devices can
only be used once. After
they have been triggered contact
Alfa Romeo Authorised Services to
have them replaced. The validity of
the device is shown on the plate
fitted on the front left door near
the lock; the pretensioners should
be changed at an Alfa Romeo Authorised Service as this date approaches.
Operations
involving
banging, vibrations or
heating (above 100°C for
a maximum of 6 hours) in the area
of the pretensioners may damage
or trigger off the device. Vibrations
from rough road surfaces or accidental jolting caused by mounting
pavements etc. do not have any effect on the pretensioner. If, however, you need assistance, go to Alfa Romeo Authorised Services.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
FOR THE USE OF THE SEAT
BELTS
All the occupants of the car are obliged to
respect the local traffic laws regarding the
wearing of seat belts.
Always fasten the seat belts before starting off.
Pagina 32
WARNING
The seat belt must not be
twisted and should cling
tightly to the body. The upper part
must pass over the shoulder and
diagonally across the chest. The
lower part must rest across the
pelvis (fig. 44) and not across the
stomach. Do not use devices (clips,
stoppers, etc.) which keep the belts
away from the body.
WARNING
To ensure the highest degree of protection, you are
recommended to keep the seat
backrest in the straightest position
possible, and the belt adhering well
to the chest and pelvis.
Seat belts should always be worn
in both the front and rear positions!
Travelling without seat belt increases the risk of serious injury or
death in the case of accident.

A0A0050m
fig. 44
WARNING
Under no circumstances
should the components of
the seat belts and pretensioner be
tampered with or removed. Any
operation should be carried out by
qualified and authorised personnel.
Always contact an Alfa Romeo Authorised Service.
WARNING
If the seat belt has been
subjected to shock, for example during an accident, it must
be completely replaced together
with the attachments and their
screws, and the pretensioning devices, even if visible defects are not
detected as the belt may have lost
its resilience.
4-07-2008
11:58
WARNING
Each seat belt must be
worn by one person only;
do not carry children on your knee
using a single seat belt for both
(fig. 45). Do not fasten other objects to the body.
Pagina 33
Seat belts are also to be worn by expecting mothers: the risk of injury in the case
of accident is greatly reduced for them and
the unborn child if they are wearing a seat
belt.
Pregnant women must of course position
the lower part of the belt very low down
so that it passes under the abdomen (fig.
46).
HOW TO KEEP
THE SEAT BELTS
ALWAYS IN EFFICIENT
CONDITIONS
– Always use the belts with the tape well
taut and never twisted; make sure that it
is free to run without impediments.
– After a serious accident, replace the belt
being worn at that time, even if it does not
appear damaged. Always replace the seat
belts if pretensioners have been activated.
– To clean the belts, wash by hand with
natural soap, rinse and leave to dry in the
shade. Never use strong detergents, bleach
or dyes or any other chemical substance that
might weaken the fibres.

CARRYING CHILDREN SAFELY
WARNING
Never place cradle child’s
seats on the front passenger’s seat of cars equipped with
passenger’s air bag since the air
bag activation could cause serious
injuries, event mortal. You are advised to cary children always on
the rear seat, as this is the most
protected position in the case of a
crash.
WARNING
SERIOUS DANGER! If
it is necessary to carry a child on the front passenger’s
seat with the cradle child’s seat facing opposite the travelling direction,
the passenger’s air bag must be deactivated through the key switch and
its deactivation must be checked
through the related warning light
F on the instrument panel (see
paragraph “Front passenger’s air
bag”). In addition, the front passenger’s seat shall be adjusted in the
most backward position to prevent
any contact between the child’s seat
and the dashboard.
For the best level of protection in the event
of a crash, all occupants must travel seated
and secured by suitable restraint systems.
This is even more important for children.
This prescription is mandatory, according
to directive 2003/20/EC, in every country
of the European Union.
Compared with adults, a child’s head is proportionately larger and heavier than the rest
of the body, while muscles and bone structure are not completely developed. Therefore, in order to restrain them correctly in
the event of a crash, different systems are
needed than adult seat belts.

The results of research on the best protection for a child are summarised in European Standard ECE-R44, which in addition
to making them compulsory, subdivides restraint systems into five groups:
Group 0
- until 10 kg in weight
Group 0+
- until 13 kg in weight
Group 1
9-18 kg in weight
Group 2
15-25 kg in weight
Group 3
22-36 kg in weight
As it may be noted, the groups partially
overlap and in fact, in commerce it is possible to find devices that cover more than
one weight group (fig. 47).
All the restraint devices must bear the homologation data, together with the control
brand, on a solidly fixed label which must
absolutely not be removed.
Pagina 35
GROUP 0 and 0+
GROUP 1
Babies up to 13 kg must be carried facing behind (fig. 48) on a cradle seat,
which supprting the head, does not induce
strain on the neck in the event of sharp deceleration.
Starting from 9 to 18 kg in weight, children may be carried facing forwards with
seats fitted with front cushion (fig. 49),
through which the car seat belts restrains
both child and seat.
The cradle is restrained by the car safety
belts, as illustrated, and it should in turn
restrain the child with the belts incorporated on it.
WARNING

only for assembly. Assemble the seat according to the compulsory instructions provided with
it.
Over 1.50 m in height, from the point of
view of restraint systems, children are considered as adults and wear belts normally.

adheres to the chest and never to the neck
and that the horizontal part adheres to the
child’s pelvis and not to the abdomen (fig.

Below is a summary of the safety rules to be observed when carrying children:
8) Do not carry children in your arms, not
even small babies. No-one, however strong,
can keep hold of them in a crash.
1) The recommended position for installing a child’s seat is on the rear seat, as
it is the most protected in the event of a
crash;
9) In the case of accidents, replace the
child’s seat with a new one.
2) If the passenger’s Air bag is deactivated (upon request for versions/markets
where applicable) always check the warning light F on the cluster to make sure
that it has actually been deactivated.
3) Carefully follow the instructions provided with the child’s seat, which the supplier is obliged to attach. Keep them in the
car together with the documents and this
booklet. Do not use used seats without the
instructions for use.
4) Always pull the tape to check that the
belts are buckled.
5) All restraint systems are strictly for one
child only: never use for two children at the
same time.
WARNING
If the passenger’s Air bag
is activated, children should
never travel on the front seat. The
activation of the air bag in the
event of a crash may cause mortal injuries to the child regardless
of the crash severity. Therefore
you are recommended to carry children always on the child’s restraint
system on the rear seat, as it is the
most protected in the event of a
crash.

FRONT AIR BAGS
Description and operation
The front Air bag (driver’s and passenger’s)
is a safety device that comes into action in
the event of a head-on collision.
A0A1010m
fig. 54
A0A1011m
fig. 55
Pagina 39
It is formed of an instantly-inflating cushion contained in a special recess:
– in the centre of the steering wheel for
the driver;
– in the dahsboard and with a larger-sized
cushion for the passenger.
The front Air bag (driver’s and passenger’s)
is a device designed to protect the occupants
in the event of a head-on collision of medium-high severity by the interposition of the
cushion between the occupant and the steering wheel or dashboard.
In the event of a crash, the electronic control unit processes the signals leading from
a deceleration sensor and when necessary
triggers inflation of the cushion.
The cushion inflates instantly as a protective barrier between the occupants’ bodies
and the structures which could cause injury.
The cushion deflates immediately afterwards.
The front Air bag (driver’s and passenger’s)
does not replace but is complementary to
the use of belts, which should always be
worn, as specifed by law in Europe and most
non-European countries.
In the event of a crash a person that is not
wearing the seat belt moves forwards and
may come into contact with the cushion
while it is still opening. Under these circumstances the protection offered by the
cushion is reduced.
Front Air bags are designed to protect car’s
occupants in front crashes and therefore nonactivation in other types of collisions (side
collisions, rear-end shunts, roll-overs, etc...)
is not a system malfunction.
In collisions against highly deformable or
mobile objects (road signposts, heaps of ice
or snow, etc.), rear collisions (hit from behind by another car), side collisions, wedging under other cars or protective barriers
(for example under a lorry or guard rail) cutting in of the air bag is not activated as it
does not offer any more protection than the
seat belts, therefore activaton would be inappropriate.
Therefore the failure to be triggered does
not mean that the system is not working.

WARNING
Never put stickers or other
objects on the steering wheel,
on the cover of the passenger’s Air
bag or on the right side cover of the
roof. Never put objects on the dashboard in front of the passenger (for
example mobile phones) which might
interfere with the correct inflation of
the passenger’s Air bag and therefore
injure the car’s occupants.

PASSENGER’S FRONT AIR BAG
The passenger’s front Air bag has been designed to improve the protection of a person
wearing a seat belt. Its volume at maximum
inflation fills most of the space between the
dashboard and the passenger.
WARNING
SERIOUS DANGER:
The car is fitted with
front passenger’s air bag. Never
place cradle child’s seats on the front
passenger’s seat of cars equipped
with passenger’s air bag since the air
bag activation could cause serious injuries, even mortal. In the case of
need, always deactivate the passenger’s air bag when a child’s seat
is placed on the front seat. The front
passenger’s seat shall be adjusted in
the most backward position to prevent any contact between child’s seat
and dashboard. Even if not ruled by
law, for better protection of adults
you are recommended to reactivate
the air bag immediately as soon as a
child transport is no longer necessary.

MANUAL DEACTIVATION
OF PASSENGER’S FRONT
AIR BAG
(upon request for versions/
markets where applicable)
WARNING
Use the switch only with
the engine off and the ignition key removed.
Should it be absolutely necessary to carry a child on the front seat, the passenger’s
front air bag can be deactivated.
Deactivation/reactivation takes place with
ignition key at STOP and operating it in
the special key switch on the right-hand side
of the dashboard (fig. 56). Access to the
switch is only possible with the door open.
The key switch (fig. 56) has two positions:
1) Passenger’s front Air bag active: (ON
position P) warning light on check panel
off; it is absolutely prohibited to carry children on the front seat.
2) Passenger’s front Air bag deactivated:
(OFF position F) warning light on check
panel on; it is possible to carry children protected by special restraint systems on the
front seat.
A0A0061m
The warning light F on the check panel glows steadily until the passenger’s Air
bag is reactivated.
Deactivation of the front passenger’s Air
bag does not prevent operation of the side
Air bags.
With the door open the key can be inserted
and removed in both positions.

SIDE AIR BAGS
(SIDE BAG - WINDOW BAG)
The side bag and window bag have the
task of increasing protection of the occupants in the event of a side crash of medium-high severity.
They are formed of two types of instantaneously-inflating cushions:
– the side bag is housed in the back rest
of the front seats; with this solution it is always possible to have the cushion in the optimum position in relation to the passenger,
regardless of the adjustment of the seat;
– the window bags, which are “curtain”
cushions, are housed in the side roof lining
covered by a special trim, which makes it
possible to extend the cushion downwards.
This solution, designed to protect the head,
makes it possible to offer the highest degree
of protection to the front and rear occupants
in the event of side crash, thanks to the wide
cushion inflation surface.
In the event of a side crash, an electronic
control unit processes the signals leading
from a deceleration sensor and activates,
when necessary, inflation of the bags.
Pagina 41
The bags inflate instantaneously, setting
themselves between the body of the front
passengers and the car door. The bags deflate immediately afterwards.
In the event of minor side crashes (for
which the restraining action of the seat belts
is sufficient), the air bags are not deployed.
Also in this case it is of vital importance to
wear the seat belts since in case of side
crash they guarantee proper positioning of
the occupant and prevent the occupant to
be pitched out of the car in case of violent
crashes.
Therefore the side air bags do not replace
but are complementary to the use of belts,
which you are recommended to always
wear, as specified by law in Europe and most
non-European countries.
Operation of the side air bags and window
bags is not disabled by the front air bag deactivation switch, as described in the previous paragraphs.
IMPORTANT In the event of side crash,
you can obtain the best protection by the
system keeping a correct position on the
seat, thus allowing correct window bag unfolding.
WARNING
Never rest head, arms and
elbows on the door, on the
windows and in the window bag
area to prevent possible injuries
during the inflation phase.
IMPORTANT The front and/or side air
bags may be activated if the car is subjected
to heavy shocks or accidents that involve the
underbody area, such as for example violent
bumps against steps, pavements or fixed obstacles on the ground, falling into big holes
or bumpy roads.
GETTING TO KNOW YOUR CAR
001-057 Alfa 147 Q2 GB
IMPORTANT The triggering of air bags
releases a small amount of powder. This powder is not harmful and does not indicate a
start of fire; also the surfaces of the deployed
bag and the car interior may be covered with
dusty residue: this may irritate the skin and
eyes. In the event of exposure, wash with
neutral soap and water.
WARNING
Never lean head, arms and
elbows out of the window.

The deadlines concerning the pyrotechnical charge and the twisted contact are
shown on the label placed on the front doors
(lock area). As these deadlines approach go
to Alfa Romeo Authorized Services to have
them replaced.
IMPORTANT If an accident has triggered the air bag, Alfa Romeo Authorized
Services must be contacted to have the devices activated replaced and to have the
whole system checked.
All operations involving checking, repairing
and replacing components concerning the Air
bag must be carried out by Alfa Romeo Authorized Services. If the car is to be demolished, Alfa Romeo Authorized Services should
be contacted beforehand to have the system
deactivated.
If the car changes ownership, the new
owner must be informed of the instructions
for use and of the above warnings and be
given this “Owner’s Manual“.
IMPORTANT The triggering of the pretensioners, front air bags and side bags is
decided by the electronic control unit in a
differentiated manner depending on the type
of crash. The failure to trigger one or more
of them does not necessarily indicate a system malfunction.

GENERAL CAUTIONS
WARNING
If warning light ¬ does
not come on turning the ignition key to MAR or stays on
while travelling, there might be a
failure in the restraining systems;
in this case the air bags or pretensioners may not activate in the
event of a crash or, in a more limited number of cases, may activate
by mistake. Before going on, ask
Alfa Romeo Authorized Services to
check the whole system immediately.
WARNING
Do not cover the back rest
of the front and rear seats
with trims or covers whose use is
not compatible with Side-bags.
WARNING
Never travel with objects
on your lap, in front of the
chest or with a pipe, pencil, etc. between your lips. Serious injury may
result in the case of the air bag being triggered.
WARNING
Always keep your hands
on the steering wheel rim
when driving, so that if the Air bag
is triggered, it can inflate without
meeting any obstacles. Do not drive with the body bent forwards,
keep the seat back rest in the erect
position and lean your back well
against it.
WARNING
If the car has been stolen
or an attempt to steal it
has been made, if it has been subjected to vandals or floods, have
the Air bag system checked by Alfa Romeo Authorized Services.
WARNING
Never put stickers or other
objects on the steering wheel,
on the cover of the passenger’s Air
bag or on the right side cover of the
roof. Never put objects on the dashboard in front of the passenger (for
example mobile phones) which might
interfere with the correct inflation of
the passenger’s Air bag and therefore
injure the car’s occupants.
4-07-2008
11:58
WARNING
Your are reminded that
when the igntion key is engaged and in the MAR position, the
Air bags can be triggered also on a
stationary car, if it is bumped by
another moving car. Therefore,
even with the car stationary, never allow children on the front seat.
You are also reminded that with
the car stationary, without the key
engaged and turned, the Air bags
are not triggered in the event of an
impact; in this case the failure to
trigger the air bags should not be
considered a system failure.
Pagina 43
WARNING
Turning the ignition key to
MAR the warning light F
(with the passenger’s front Air bag
deactivation switch at ON) turns
on for about 4 seconds, and then
flashes for another 4 seconds to
remind that the passenger’s Air
bag and corresponding side Air
bags will be activated in the event
of a crash, then it goes off.
WARNING
Do not wash the seat back
with pressurised water or
steam (by hand or at automatic
seat washing stations).
WARNING
Do not hook rigid objects to
the coat hooks and to the
support handles.
WARNING
The air bag does not replace
the seat belts, but increases
their effectiveness. Additionally, as
the front air bags are not triggered
for head-on collision at low speed,
side crashes, crashes from behind or
overturning, in these cases the occupants are protected only by the
seat belts, which must, therefore, always be fastened.
GETTING TO KNOW YOUR CAR
001-057 Alfa 147 Q2 GB
WARNING
The front Air bags are designed to be triggered for
heavier crashes than the pretensioners. It is therefore normal for
the pretensioners only to be triggered for crashes within the two
activation thresholds.

washer (fig. 64-65)
This function allows the illumination of the
space in front of the car for the length of
time set, and is activated with the ignition
key at STOP or removed, pulling the lefthand lever towards the steering wheel.
The lever can be moved to five different
positions, corresponding to:
A - Windscreen wiper off.
B - Intermittent.
This function is activated pulling the lever
within 2 minutes from when the engine is
turned off. At each single movement of the

“SMART WASHING” FUNCTION
Rain sensor (fig. 66)
Pulling the lever towards the steering
wheel (unstable position) operates the windscreen washer.
The rain sensor (A), fitted only on certain versions, is an electronic device combined with the windscreen wiper which has
the purpose of automatically adjusting the
number of wipes during intermittent operation to the intensity of the rain.
Keeping the lever pulled, with only one
movement it is possible to operate the washer jet and the wiper at the same time; indeed, the latter comes into action automatically if the lever is pulled for more than
half a second.
The wiper stops working a few strokes after releasing the lever; a further “cleaning
stroke” after a few seconds completes the
wiping operation.
Turning the knurled ring (F-fig. 64) it
is possible to increase the sensitivity of the
rain sensor, obtaining a quicker change from
stationary, when the windscreen is dry, to
first continuous speed (continuous, slow).
All the other functions controlled by the
right-hand lever remain unchanged.
Operating the windscreen washer with the
rain sensor activated (lever at position B)
the normal washing cycle is performed at
the end of which the rain sensor resumes its
normal automatic function.
The rain sensor is activated automatically
moving the right-hand lever to position (Bfig. 64) and it has a range of adjustment
that gradually varies between wiper stationary (no wiping) when the windscreen is
dry, to wiper at first continuous speed (continuous, slow) with heavy rain.
Turning the ignition key to STOP the rain
sensor is deactivated and the next time the
engine is started (MAR position) it will not
be reactivated even if the lever has remained
in position (B). In this case to activate the
rain sensor, simply move the lever to (A)
or (C) and then back to (B).
GETTING TO KNOW YOUR CAR
001-057 Alfa 147 Q2 GB
When the rain sensor is reactivated in this
way, the wiper performs at least one stroke,
even if the windscreen is dry, to indicate that
reactivation has occurred.

At each start, the rain sensor automatically
stabilises at a temperature of about 40°C
to eliminate any condensation from the control surface and prevent the formation of ice.
The rain sensor is able to detect and automatically adapt to the presence of the following particular conditions which require
different sensitivity:
– impurities on the control surface (salt,
dirt, etc.);
– streaks of water caused by worn wiper
blades;
– difference between day and night (the
human eye is more disturbed during the
night by the wet glass surface).

Pushing the lever towards the dashboard
(unstable position) operates the rearscreen
washer jet and continous operation of the
rearscreen wiper. Operation ends when the
lever is released.
Turning the knurled ring (A) from position

CRUISE CONTROL
GENERAL
The speed regulator (CRUISE CONTROL), with electronic control, makes it
possible to drive the car at the required
speed without pressing the accelerator pedal. This reduces driving fatigue during long
journeys because the speed memorised is
automatically maintained.
IMPORTANT The device can only be engaged at speeds between 30 and 190
km/h.
Pagina 49
The device is disengaged automatically in
any of the following cases:
– pressing the brake pedal;
– pressing the clutch pedal;
– if the ASR, MSR OR VDC systems cut in;
– with Selespeed transmission if a gear is
changed;
– inadvertently moving the Selespeed
gear control lever to N.
– ON is the normal operating position of
the device. When the ring (A) is in this
position, the warning light Ü on the instrument cluster turns on.
CONTROLS (fig. 70)
Cruise Control is controlled by the
ON/OFF knurled ring (A), by the +/–
ring(B) and by the RES button (C).
Ring (A) has two positions:
– OFF in this position the device is deactivated;
Turn the ring (B) to (–) to lower the speed
memorised.
Ring (B) serves for memorising and maintaining the car sped or for increasing or lowering the speed memorised.
Turn the ring (B) to (+) to memorise the
speed reached or increase the speed memorised.
Each time the ring is actuated (B) the speed
increases or lowers by about 1.5 km/h.
GETTING TO KNOW YOUR CAR
001-057 Alfa 147 Q2 GB
Keeping the ring turned the speed changes
continuously. The new speed reached will be
maintained automatically.
The RES button (C) resets the memorised
speed.
WARNING
Cruise Control must be activated only when the
route and traffic allow a constant
speed for a sufficiently long distance completely safely.

TO MEMORISE
THE SPEED
TO RESET THE
MEMORISED SPEED
TO REDUCE THE
MEMORISED SPEED
Move the ring (A) to ON and take the car
to the required speed normally. Turn the ring
(B) to (+) for at least three seconds, then
release it. The car speed is memorised and
it is therefore possible to release the accelerator pedal.
If the device has been disengaged for example pressing the brake or clutch pedal,
the memorised speed can be reset as follows:
The speed memorised can be reduced in
two ways:
– accelerate gradually until reaching a
speed approaching the one memorised;
1) disengaging the device (for instance
pressing the brake pedal) and then memorising the new speed (turning the ring (B)
to (+) for at least three seconds);
The car will continue to travel at the memorised constant speed until one of the following conditions takes place:
– engage the gear selected at the time
of speed memorising (4th, 5th or 6th
speed);
2) keeping the ring pressed (B) at (–)
until reaching the new speed which will be
memorised automatically.
– pressing the brake pedal;
– press the RES button (C).
– pressing the clutch pedal;
– if the ASR, MSR or VDC systems cut in;
– with Selespeed transmission if a gear is
changed;
– inadvertent movement of the Selespeed
gear control lever to position N.
IMPORTANT In the case of need (when
overtaking for instance) acceleration is possible simply pressing the accelerator pedal;
later, releasing the accelerator pedal, the car
will return to the speed memorised previously.
50
Pagina 50
TO INCREASE THE
MEMORISED SPEED
The speed memorised can be increased
in two ways:
1) pressing the accelerator and then memorising the new speed reached (turning the
ring to (B) for more than three seconds);
or
2) momentaneously turning the ring (B) to
(+): each pulse of the ring will correspond to
a slight increase in speed (about 1.5 km/h),
while pressing continuously wull correspond
to a continuous speed increase. Releasing the
ring (B) the new speed will be memorised
automatically.

11:58
RESETTING THE MEMORISED
SPEED
The memorised speed is automatically reset turning off the engine or moving the ring
(A) to OFF.
WARNING
When travelling with the
cruise control on, do not
move the gearshift lever to neutral
and do not move the Selespeed selector to N.
It is advisable to engage the cruise control
only when the conditions of the traffic or
roads so permit under completely safe conditions, i.e.: straight and dry roads, dual carriage ways or motorways, flowing traffic and
smooth road surface. Do not engage the device in town or in heavy traffic conditions.
Pagina 51
WARNING
Cruise control may only be
engaged
at
speeds
between 30 and 190 km/h.
The device may only be engaged in 4th,
5th or 6th gear, depending on the speed
of the car. Travelling downhill with the device engaged the car speed may increase
more that the memorised one, due to the
change in the engine load.
The ring (A) may be left constantly at ON
without damaging the device. You are, however, advised to switch the device off when
not in use, turning the ring to OFF, to avoid
memorising speeds by accident.

Pagina 56
REV COUNTER
The danger zone (red, or white on certain
versions) indicates excessively high engine
speed. Do not drive for long periods with the
pointer in this area.
IMPORTANT The electronic injection
control system gradually shuts off the flow
of fuel when the engine is “over-revving”
resulting in a gradual loss of engine power.
When the engine is idling, the rev counter
may indicate a gradual or sudden highering of
the speed, this is normal as it takes place during normal operation, for example when engaging the climate control system or the fan.
In particular a slow change in the speed preserves the battery charge.

FUEL LEVEL GAUGE WITH
RESERVE INDICATOR
This shows the amount of fuel left in the
fuel tank.
The warning light K turns on to indicate that
approx. 7 litres of fuel are left in the tank.
IMPORTANT Under certain conditions
(heavy slopes, for instance), the reading on
the gauge may differ from the actual amount
of fuel in the tank and changes in level may
be indicated late.
This condition falls within the operation logics of the electronic control circuit to avoid
highly unstable readings due to swaying of
the fuel when travelling.
IMPORTANT Refuelling shall always be
performed with engine off and ignition key at
STOP. If the engine is off but the key is at
MAR, a wrong fuel level could temporarily
be indicated. This is due to the internal system control logic and cannot be considered as
a system malfunctioning.
Pagina 57
ENGINE COOLANT FLUID
TEMPERATURE GAUGE WITH
MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE
WARNING LIGHT
This shows the temperature of the engine
coolant fluid and begins when the fluid temperature exceeds approx. 50°C.
Normally the pointer should be towards
the middle of the scale. If the pointer reaches the higher temperatures of the scale (red
section, or white on certain versions) the request for car performance should be decreased.
IMPORTANT The temperature of the engine coolant may rise towards the maximum
values (red section, or white on certain versions) when the car is driven at low speeds,
especially when the ambient air temperature is high. In this case it is advisable to
stop the car and switch off the engine for
a few minutes, after which the journey can
be resumed, preferably at a higher speed.

GENERAL
The car is fitted with a two-zone climate control system, controlled by an electronic control
unit which makes it possible to separately adjust the air temperature on the driver’s side
and on the passenger’s side. To obtain optimum temperature control in the two areas
of the passenger’s compartment, the system
has an outside sensor, a passenger’s compartment sensor and a two-zone sun ray sensor. On some versions the system is integrated with an incipient misting sensor installed
behind the inside rear-view mirror, capable of
“controlling” a predefined area of the windscreen inner surface which can automatically
act on the system to prevent or reduce misting through a series of operations such as:
opening air re-circulation, enabling the compressor, air flow to the windscreen, fan speed
sufficient for demisting; in the case of heavy
misting, enabling the MAX-DEF function.
To ensure correct operation of the incipient misting sensor, stickers must
not be applied (road licence holder,
time card, etc.) in the “control”
area between the sensor and the
windscreen. Care should also be
given to cleaning the windscreen
and the actual sensor, avoiding the
accumulation of dust and other substances.
Pagina 96
IMPORTANT The demisting procedure
is enabled each time the ignition key is
turned to MAR or pressing the AUTO button. When this procedure is working it can
be turned off pressing one of the following
buttons: compressor, air recirculation, air
flow, air capacity. This operation inhibits the
incipient misting sensor signal until the AUTO button is pressed again or the next time
the ignition key is turned to MAR.
On certain versions, the system is integrated by an antipollution sensor capable of
automatically switching on inside air re-circulation to lessen the harmful effects of polluted air in cities, queues, tunnels and operation of the windscreen washer (with the
typical smell of spirit).
IMPORTANT The function of the antipollution sensor is subordinate to safety conditions; therefore disabling the climate control compressor or with low external temperature, the sensor is disabled. In any case,
the sensor can be re-enabled pressing the
recirculation button v until taking it to
the automatic mode.
Air quality control is also entrusted to a
combined particle and activated carbon filter. The climate control system automatically
controls and adjusts the following parameters and functions:
- inside temperature (separately on driver’s
side and passenger’s side)
- fan speed
- air distribution
- inside air re-circulation on/off
- climate control compressor on/off enable.
It is possible to change the setting of the
following functions manually:
- fan speed
- air distribution
- inside air re-circulation on/off
- climate control compressor on/off enable.
The control of functions not changed manually remains automatic and in any case the
temperature of the air admitted to the passenger compartment is controlled automatically according to the temperatures set on
the driver’s and passenger’s displays.
IMPORTANT Manual selections prevail
over automatic ones and remain in storage
until the user decides to resume automatic
control. The settings selected manually are
stored when the engine is switched off and
resumed the next time it is started.

During completely automatic system operation, the temperatures set can be
changed at any time; the system will automatically change its settings to adjust to the
new requirements.
98
Pagina 98
IMPORTANT To be able to be accepted by the system, the difference in the temperature between the driver’s and passenger’s side must be within a range of 7°C.
It is possible to personalise the choices
made automatically by the system interveningmanually on the following controls:
- fan speed adjustment knob (4)
- air distribution selection buttons (10)
- inside air re-circulation on/off button (8)
v
- climate control on enable button (14)
√.
Manually selecting one or more of these
functions turns off the right led on the button (13) AUTO.
With one or more functions engaged manually, the adjustment of the temperature of
the air admitted to the passenger compartment continues to be controlled automatically by the system (left led on button 13

AIR DISTRIBUTION SELECTION
BUTTONS (fig. 113)
Pressing one or more buttons (10) it is
possible to manually choose one of the 5
possible air distributions to the passenger
compartment:
R E Flow of air to the dashboard centre
and side outlets and rear outlet (if fitted).
R E Splitting of the air flow between the
Z vents to the lower part of the passenger’s compartment (warmest air)
and the dashboard centre and side
outlets and the rear outlet (if fitted)
(coolest air). The air flow distribution
is particularly useful in spring and autumn, when the sun is shining.
Z Air flow towards the front and rear
lower parts of the passenger’s compartment. Due to the natural tendency of heat to spread upwards, this
type of distribution allows heating of
the passenger’s compartment in the
shortest time, also giving a prompt
feeling of warmth to the coldest parts
of the body.
104
fig. 113
Q Splitting of the air flow between the
Z windscreen and side window defrosting/demisting vents and the lower
part of the car. This type of air distribution allows satisfactory heating of
the passenger’s compartment while
preventing possible misting of the windows.
Q Air flow to the windscreen and front
side window vents to demist or defrost them.

If the car is used mainly in dusty or polluted areas it should be checked and, if necessary, replaced at shorter intervals.
The filtering action takes place under all
air inlet conditions and it is clearly most effective with the windows shut.
The failure to replace the
filter may considerably reduce the effectiveness of
the climate control system up to

ring. To change from reverse to another gear,
it is not necessary to lift the ring on the lever.
IMPORTANT On certain versions a
buzzer sounds to alert the driver if the car
is moved with the hand brake engaged.
IMPORTANT Reverse gear may only be
engaged with the car completely at a standstill. With the engine running, before engaging reverse gear it is necessary to wait
for at least 3 seconds with the clutch pedal
fully depressed to prevent clashing and the
possibility of damaging the gears.
WARNING
,To change gear smoothly,
the clutch pedal must be
fully depressed. Therefore, there
should be no obss tacles on the floor

SELESPEED
TRANSMISSION
(on request for versions/markets
where applicable)
The 2.0 T.SPARK version can be supplied
with a mechanical gearbox with electronic
control, called “Selespeed”.
The Selespeed considerably simplifies use
of the car, reducing the fatigue of city driving or when frequent gearshifting is required, at the same time offering brilliant
performance.
This device comprises a conventional mechanical gearbox to which an electronically-operated electro-hydraulic device has been
added which automatically controls the
clutch and gear engagement. The clutch pedal has been eliminated and the car moves
off using only the accelerator pedal.
Gearshifting takes place through the control lever (A-fig. 126) which is of the
floating type with a “single central stable
position”. Using the lever it is possible to request an increase/decrease of the gear ratio engaged and/or reverse gear engagement (R) or neutral (N).
IMPORTANT To be able to use the Selespeed correctly, this chapter should be read
in full to understand the correct, permissible
operations to be carried out right from the
start.
A0A0097m
114
fig. 126
There are also two levers on the steering
wheel spokes (fig. 127) through which
it is possible to shift gear up or down (also
with the car stationary).
The gearbox can work in two operating
modes:
– the first is semiautomatic (then called
MANUAL), in which the driver directly requests gearshifting through the lever on the
centre console or the levers on the steering
wheel spokes;
– the second i automatic, called CITY
(mode selectable with the special button Bfig. 128, the word CITY is shown on the
display fig. 130). With this mode the system decides directly when to shift gear.

With gearshift to CITY gears can still be
shifted manually using the gearshift lever or
the steering wheel controls. Geashift stays
in CITY.
The gear engaged (fig. 129) is shown
on the display regardless of the mode selected.
In the CITY mode the selected position is
shown.
A warning light connected with the corresponding failure message (“GEARBOX FAILURE”) (fig. 130) and a buzzer attract the
attention of the driver in the event of a fault
of the Selespeed transmission.
N = neutral;
1 = first gear;
2 = second gear;
IMPORTANT Opening the driver’s door
the Selespeed starts the hydraulic part of
the system to prepare it for when the engine is started.
Turning the ignition key to MAR, all the
segments of the gear display (fig. 129),
the gearbox failure warning light (fig.
130) and the word CITY light up. After
about one second, the display indicates the
gear engaged (N, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, R).
IMPORTANT If after 10 seconds the display segments do not display the gear engaged or the failure warning light stays on,
turn the ignition key to STOP and wait for
the display to go off, then repeat the system activation procedure. If the fault presists, contact Alfa Romeo Authorised Services.

OPERATION WITH ENGINE OFF
IMPORTANT Before operating the
gearshift control lever, always check the gear
engaged on the display (N, 1, 2, 3, 4,
5, R).
With the engine off and the car stationary it is possible to engage all the gears.
With the car stationary and with the brake
pedal pressed, requests to shift gear are accepted both if they are carried out through
the control lever on the central console and
the levers on the steering wheel.
To request gearshifting, in addition to keeping the brake pedal pressed:
– to increase gear (+) (fig. 131) push
the lever “forwards” (if the car is in first gear
this shifts to second, if it is in second gear
it goes to third and so on up to fifth). If the
system is in neutral (N) or reverse (R) the
forward movement on the lever causes engagement of first gear (1).
system will engage neutral (N) and the manoeuvre will be repeated.
– to shift down (–) (fig. 131) push the
lever backwards (if the car is in fifth gear it
moves to fourth, if fourth is engaged it shifts
to third and so on down to first).
IMPORTANT Once a gear has been
changed it is necessary to immediately release the gearshift control lever after making the request. A manoeuvre prolonged
(over 10 seconds) makes the system automatically switch to CITY mode; everything stops releasing the gearshift lever.
To put the gearbox in neutral (N), starting
from the condition with the car stationary and
the brake pedal pressed, it is necessary to
move the gearshift control lever to the right
(fig. 132).
From any gear (N, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and with
the car practically at a standstill, it is possible to request engagement of reverse gear,
pushing the lever to the right and then backwards (fig. 133). If the car is on the move,
the request is accepted if, within 3 seconds
from the request, the car speed is below 3
Km/h: if the request is not carried out, the

IMPORTANT If wanting to leave the car
parked on a sloping road with a gear engaged to keep it braked, it is necessary to
check that the display shows the new gear
engaged and then wait for 1 or 2 seconds
before releasing the brake pedal to allow
complete clutch engagement.

STARTING THE ENGINE
The engine can be started with the gear
engaged or in neutral (N), provided that the
brake pedal is pressed down.
IMPORTANT Keep the brake pedal
pressed during the starting operation. As the
brake pedal stiffens if it is pressed repeatedly with the engine off, in this situation, to
allow the engine to be started, it is necessary to increase the pressure exerted on the
pedal itself.
After starting, the gearbox sets to neutral
automatically, the display shows the letter
(N) and the system selects the operating
mode memorised before switching off.
IMPORTANT If the engine is started
with the gearbox in a position different from
N and without the brake pedal pressed, the
display shows a dedicated message. In this
case repeat the starting operation and press
the brake pedal.
IMPORTANT Should the starting-up procedure be executed with the gearbox not
in working order, carry out the “Delayed
start-up” procedure (see also the relative
messages): keeping the key in the AVV
position for at least 10 seconds, with the
brake held down, the engine will start. The
system will remain in the recovery mode
(maximum gear allowed: 2nd, Auto mode
Pagina 117
is not available). Should the engine not
start, seek assistance from the Alfa Romeo
Authorised Services.
WARNING
If the engine fails to start
with the gear engaged, the
driver is alerted of the potentially
dangerous situation due to the fact
that the gearbox has automatically
set to neutral by the buzzer and thee
display.
WARNING
NEVER leave the car with
the gear in neutral (N).
WARNING
Never remove the ignition
key when the car is moving. In addition to the fact that the
Selespeed s ystem would not work
properly up to stopping the car,
the steering wheel would lock automatically the first time it is
turned.

SWITCHING OFF THE ENGINE
AND SYSTEM DEACTIVATION
Turning the ignition key to STOP the engine turns off and the gear selected before
switching off the engine remains engaged.
If the engine is stopped with the gearbox
in neutral (N), the buzzer and the flashing of (N) call the driver’s attention so that
the car can be put in safety conditions engaging first gear (1) or reverse (R). In this
case, the ignition key should be turned to
MAR and with the brake pedal pressed,
engage first gear (1) or reverse ( R).
WARNING
It is absolutely necessary
to turn off the engine and
then turn off the Selespeed system keeping t he brake pedal
p r e s s e d : O N LY release the pedal
when the display on the cluster
has gone out.

MOVING OFF THE CAR
With the engine on and the car stationary,
the gears that can be engaged for moving
off are only first (1), second (2) or reverse
(R).
To engage them it is possible, keeping the
brake pedal pressed, to use the gearshift
lever on the centre console as well as the
levers on the steering wheel.
This is not to be considered as a fault as
it is part of the operating logic. For the same
reason, in the case of sticking on reverse
gear, the system partially closes the clutch
to allow gear engagement; in this case the
engagement of reverse gear (R) will not be
as smooth as usual.
Moving off the car is obtained:
1) releasing the brake pedal;
IMPORTANT Reverse gear (R) can be
engaged from any of the following other ratios: neutral (N), first (1) or second (2).
If the car is moving, the request will be accepted and carried out if, within 3 seconds
from the request, the car speed is below 3
Km/h: if the request is not accepted, the
system will engaged neutral (N) and the
manoeuvre will be repeated.
2) gradually pressing the accelerator pedal.
The driver is informed of the reverse gear
engaged condition by the display and the intermittent sound of a buzzer.
WARNING
After a request to shift
gear with the car stationary, before pressing the accelerator pedal to make the car move,
the driver must always check the
display to see that the gear engaged is the onn e required.
IMPORTANT If when shifting from reverse (R)/first (1) or neutral (N)/first (1)
sticking occurs on first gear, the system automatically engages second gear (2).
118
Pagina 118
The more the accelerator is pressed the
higher the pickup torque.
WARNINGS
– With the car stopped and a gear engaged always keep the brake pedal pressed
until deciding to move off;
– during prolonged halts with the engine
running it is advisable to keep the gearbox
in neutral;
– when the car is parked facing uphill, do
not use the moving off manoeuvre to keep
the car still; use the brake pedal and press
the accelerator pedal only when deciding to
move off;
– use second gear only when more control is needed for moving off manoeuvres at
low speed;
– if, in reverse gear, first gear is engaged
or vice versa, shift gear only when the car
is stopped completely and with the brake
pedal pressed.
4-07-2008

Though highly unadvisable, if when travelling downhill for some unexpected reason
the car is set to neutral (N), when the engagement of a gear is requested, the system automatically engages the best gear
in relation to the speed of the car to allow
the correct transmission of torque to the
wheels.
When travelling downhill with a gear engaged and the accelerator released (if the
car is moving), beyond a pre-established
speed, the system engages the clutch automatically to give the car adequate engine
braking.
For safety reasons the Selespeed system
activates the buzzer when:
– clutch overheating occurs while the car
is being started; in this case it is necessary
to “force” starting avoiding hesitation or, if
the car is on a slope, release the accelerator and use the brake pedal to stop the car;
Pagina 119
Still due to safety reasons, with the car stationary, the engine running and gear (1), (2)
or (R) engaged, the system activates the
buzzer and automatically shifts to neutral (N)
when:
– no action is made on the accelerator
and/or brake pedals for at least 3 minutes;
– the brake is pressed for over 10 minutes;
– the driver’s door is opened and the accelerator and brake are not touched for at
least 1.5 seconds.
STOPPING THE CAR
To stop the car, simply release the accelerator pedal and, if necessary, press the brake
pedal.
OPERATING MODES
The gearbox can work in two operating
modes:
– the first is semiautomatic (MANUAL), in which the driver directly decides
when to shift gear;
– the second is completely automatic
(CITY), in which the system decides directly when to shift gear according to the driving style.
The CITY mode is selected by pressing the
CITY button on the gearshift lever knob;
when the automatic mode is selected the
word CITY is shown on the display.
GETTING TO KNOW YOUR CAR
110-185_Alfa147 Q2 GB
Regardless of the gear engaged and the operating mode activated (MANUAL or
CITY) the system automatically disengages
the clutch and shifts to a lower gear.
If deciding to move off again without having stopped the car completely, the most suitable ratio will be available for accelerator
again.
Stopping the car the system automatically
engages first gear (1).

SEMIAUTOMATIC OPERATION
(MANUAL)
In the MANUAL operating mode, the display shows the gear engaged.
In this operating mode, the decision to
change gear is left to the driver who decides
the most appropriate moment.
The requests to change gear may take
place through:
– the control lever on the centre console
(A-fig. 134);
– the levers on the steering wheel (fig.
135).
If the gearshifting request compromises
the correct engine and gearbox operation,
the system will not allow gearshifting but
will automatically shift down the gears to
let the engine run idle (e.g. during decelerations).
In these cases the system informs the driver about the impossibility of shifting gears
through a dedicated message on the display
and a buzzer.
The MANUAL operating mode is set
when, with the CITY mode selected, the
CITY (B-fig. 136) button is pressed
again, thereby cutting out the previously selected mode.
A0A0097m
120
fig. 134
When changing gear it is not necessary
to release the accelerator pedal because the
Selespeed system directly controls the engine in such a way as to:
– reduce and then increase engine torque;
– adapt the engine speed to the latest
gear engaged.
When downshifting, the engine is accelerated automatically to bring it to the speed
necessary with the new gear ratio.
The neutral command (N) is accepted at
any car speed.
Reverse (R) is only accepted and engaged
with the car almost stationary.

With the accelerator pedal pressed to over
60% of its stroke and an engine speed
above 5000 rpm, gearshifting becomes
quicker. In the MANUAL operating mode
there are certain automatic/security devices
which simplify driving:
– when slowing down the clutch is opened
and the transmission ratio is automatically
reduced to be ready for picking up again;
otherwise, when the car is stopped, the
gearbox will automatically be in first gear
(1);
– requests to change gear that would take
the engine to above maximum speed or below minimum speed are not accepted;

Failures of the Selespeed gearbox are
shown by the t (fig. 137/a) warning
light accompanied by a message and a
buzzer.
In addition to the gear, the display shows
the word CITY.
The system decides directly when to
change gear depending on the engine rpm
and the driving style.
Releasing the accelerator pedal quickly, the
system does not engage a higher gear in order to maintain an adequate level of engine
brake.

CAUTIONS FOR CARRYING
LUGGAGE
Travelling at night with a load in the boot
it is necessary to adjust the height of the low
beam headlights (see next paragraph
“Headlights” in this chapter). For correct use
of the aiming device, also make sure that
the load does not exceed the values given
in the same paragraph.
WARNING
Do not load the boot above
the permitted maximum
(see “Technical specifications”). Also make sure that the objects contained in the boot are well secured
to prevent them from being thrown
forward,, causing harm to the passengers.
WARNING
A heavy load that has not
been secured may cause
serious harm to passengers.
WARNING
If you want to carry res e rve fuel in a can, follow
legal regulations, only using a certified cann , suitably fastened to the
load securing eyelets. Even in this
way the risk of fire is increased in

HEADLIGHTS
COMPENSATION FOR TILT
(fig. 167)
The adjustment of the headlights is vital to
your safety and comfort and to that of other road users.
When the car is loaded, the beam from the
headlights is raised due to the backwards
tilt of the car.
The adjustment of the headlights is also
governed by precise regulations.
In this case the headlights must be adjusted correctly.
Contact Alfa Romeo Authorised Services to
have the headlights correctly adjusted.
IMPORTANT A slight layer of steam
(fogging) can appear on the inside surface
of the beam transparent cover: this is not
a defect. The presence of condensate traces
in beams is a natural phenomenon, due to
a low temperature and to the degree of humidity in the air. These traces will disappear
when the beams are turned on. Drops of water inside the headlight indicate instead water infiltration: contact Alfa Romeo Authorised Services.
To do this (possible only with dipped
beams turned on) proceed as follows
▲/ ▼:
– press the button to increase by one position (e.g.: 0 ➟ 1 ➟ 2 ➟ 3);
– press the button to decrease by one position (e.g.: 3 ➟ 2 ➟ 1 ➟ 0);
The display (A), in the tachometer, shows
the positions while adjustment is being
made.

PARKING SENSORS
ACTIVATION
(upon request for versions/
markets where applicable)
The sensors are activate automatically
when reverse gear is engaged.
These sensors are located in the car rear
bumper (fig. 170); their function is to detect and warn the driver , through an intermittent buzzer, about the presence of obstacles in the car rear area.
TOWING TRAILERS
BUZZER
The operation of the rear
sensors is automatically
deactivated as soon as the
electric cable plug of the trailer is
inserted in the car tow hook outlet.
Engaging reverse gear an intermittent
buzzer is automatically activated.
The rear sensors are automatically re-activated when the trailer cable plug is removed.
As the distance from the obstacle behind
the car diminishes,the buzzer frequency will
increase.
The buzzer:
– increases as the distance between the
car and the obstacle diminishes;
GETTING TO KNOW YOUR CAR
110-185_Alfa147 Q2 GB
– becomes continuous as the distance between the car and the obstacle is below approx. 30 cm and stops immediately if the
distance increases.
A0A1053m

– remains constant if the distance between the car and the obstacle is the same,
while, if this situation occurs for the side sensors, the signal is interrupted after about 3
seconds to avoid, for example, signalling
in the event of manoeuvres along the walls.

ABS
The car is fitted with an ABS braking system,
which prevents the wheels from locking when
braking, makes full use of the grip and within the limits of the grip available, keeps the
car controllable also in emergency braking.
When braking a slight pulsing accompanied
by noise may be felt on the brake pedal due
to the action of the ABS system.
This should not be interpreted as a braking
malfunction. It is the signal to the driver that
the ABS has come into action: it is the warning that the car is travelling at the limit of its
grip and therefore the speed should be adapted to the type of road.
The ABS system is an additional part of the
braking system; in the event of a failure it disabled, leaving the braking system in the same
conditions as a car without ABS. In the case
of failure, the anti-lock action is no longer present, the braking capacity of the car is not
adversely affected at all.
If you have never previously used cars fitted
with ABS, it is advisable to practice a little on
a slippery surface, naturally in safety conditions and in accordance with the local Highway Code; you are also advised to read the
following instructions carefully.
140
Pagina 140
The advantage of the ABS over a conventional system is that it makes it possible to
obtain the highest degree of handling also
when braking completely under limited grip
conditions, preventing the wheels from locking.
However, with the ABS do not expect the
braking distance to always shorten: for example, on soft surfaces like gravel or fresh
snow or a slippery surface, the space might
increase. To better exploit the possibilities of
the antilock system in the case of need, the
advice given below should be followed.
WARNING
The ABS better exploits the
grip available, but cannot
increase it; caution is therefore necessaryy on slippery surfaces, without taking unnecessary risks.
WARNING
If the ABS cuts in it means
that the limit of the grip is
being reached between the tyre
and the road surface: it is therefore
necessary to slow down to adapt
driving to the grip available.
WARNING
When the ABS cuts in, and
you feel the pulsing on the
pedal, do not lighthen the pressure,
but keep the pedal firmly pressed
with no fear; this way you will
stop in the least space possible,
compatibll y with the conditions of
the road surface.
Always take due care when braking on
bends, even with the help of the ABS.
The most important advice of all, however, is this:
WARNING
In the event of a system
failure, with the turning on
of the > warning light on the instrument cluster, have the car
checked immediately by Alfa
Romeo Authorised Services driving
s l o w l y, to be able to have the system restored to fully efficient conditions.
Following these instructions you will be
in the best braking condition under all circumstances.
4-07-2008
12:02
Pagina 141
IMPORTANT Cars fitted with ABS may
only be fitted with the wheel rims, tyres and
brake linings of type and brand approved by
the Manufacturer.
The system is completed by the EBD (Electronic Brake Distributor) which distributes the
braking action through the control unit and the
ABS system sensors.
WARNING
If the compact spare wheel
is used, operation of the
ABS system is cut off and the >
warning light on the instrument
cluster turns on.
WARNING
The car is fitted with an
electronic braking distributor (EBD). If the > and x w a r ning lights turn on simultaneously
with the engine running, this indicates an EBD system failuu re; in this
case with sharp braking the rear
wheels might lock too early, with
the possibility of skidding. Driving
extremely carefully, go to the nearest Alfa Romeo Authorised Service
to have the s ystem checked.
IMPORTANT If the battery is run down
the > and x warning lights might turn on
when starting the engine and go off after
starting. This should not be considered as
a fault but as a warning that during starting the ABS is not active. The turning off
of the warning lights ensures normal system
operation.
WARNING
The turning on of only the
> warning light with the
engine running normally indicates
a fault to the ABS system only. In
this casee the braking system is still
efficient, though without the aid
of the anti-lock device. Under
these conditions performance of
the EBD system may be reduced.
In this case too, you are advised
to go imm
m ediately to the nearest
Alfa Romeo Authorised Service to
have the system checked over, driving in such a way as to avoid
sharp braking.
WARNING
If the low brake fluid level
x warning light turns on,
stop the car immediately and contact the nearest Alfa Romeo Authorised See rvice. Any loss of fluid
from the hydraulic system will negatively affect the operation of the
braa king system be it of the conventional type or of the type with ABS.

VERSIONS WITH VDC SYSTEM
EXCLUDED
WARNING
After using the spare wheel
and refitting the standard
wheel, it is necessary to travel for
approx. 30 km (20 minutes) on a
mixed road or approx. 15 km (10
minutes) on a highway until the software o f the ABS/ASR control unit
recognises the size of the “normal”
wheel; in this period of time the carr
may slightly go adrift on a side during brakig and the ASR warning light
(if fitted) may come on.. Therefore
it is recommended to travel carefully and to avoid, where possible,
sharp braking. On c ars fitted with
ASR travel for the above mentioned
distance with the ASR turned off
through the suitt able button.
VDC SYSTEM
(Vehicle Dynamics Control)
(upon request for
versions/markets where
applicable)
It is an electronic system that controls the
car stability and, in the lack of grip, it helps
to bring the car back to the correct direction.
The action of the VDC system is particularly useful when the road grip conditions
change.
WARNING
The performance of the
system should not induce
the driver to take pointless and
unnecessary r i s k s . T h e s t y l e o f
driving must in any case always
be adapted to the conditions of
the road surface, visibb ility and
traffic. The responsibility for road
safety is always and in any case
the driver’s .
HOW THE VDC
SYSTEM WORKS
The VDC system is engaged automatically when the car is started and cannot be
switched off.
CUTTING IN
OF THE VDC SYSTEM
The cutting in of the VDC system is indicated by the flashing of the á warning light
on the instrument cluster, to inform the driver that the car is in critical conditions of stability and grip.
4-07-2008
12:02
VDC SYSTEM FAILURE
WARNING
In the event of a failure of the VDC system
disengages automatically and the á warning light on the instrument cluster turns on
glowing steadily, together with the message
on the reconfigurable multifunction display.
In the event of a VDC system failure the
car behaves like a car not fitted with this system: in any case it is advisable to contact
Alfa Romeo Authorised Services as soon as
possible.
Pagina 143
WARNING
During use of the compact
spare wheel, the VDC system continues working. It should
be borne in minn d that the spare
wheel is smaller than a normal
tyre, therefore its grip is lower
than that of the o ther tyres of the
car.
WARNING
For the VDC system to
work correctly, the tyres
must be of the same brand and
type on all wheels, inn perfect conditions and above all of the specified type, brand and size.

ASR SYSTEM
(Antislip Regulation)
(upon request for
versions/markets where
applicable)
The ASR function controls the car drive and
cuts in automatically every time one or both
driving wheels slip.
In slipping conditions, tow different control
systems are activated:
1) if slipping involves both driving wheels,
being caused by excessive power transmitted, the ASR device cuts in reducing the power transmitted by the engine.
2) if slipping involves only one driving
wheel, the ASR system cuts in automatically braking the wheel that is slipping, with
an effect similar to that of a self-locking differential.
144
Pagina 144
The action of the ASR is particularly helpful in the following circumstances:
– slipping of the inner wheel on a bend,
due to the effect of dynamic load changes
or excessive acceleration.
– too much power transmitted to the
wheels also in relation to the conditions of
the road surface.
– acceleration on slippery, snowy or frozen
surfaces.
– in the case of loss of grip on a wet surface (aquaplaning).
WARNING
The performance of the
system in terms of active
safety should not induce the driver
to take pointlee ss and unnecessary
risks. The style of driving must in
any case be adapted to the conditions of thh e road surface, visibility and traffic. Road surface is alw a y s t h e d r i v e r ’s responsibility.

EOBD SYSTEM
(for versions/markets where
applicable)
The EOBD system (European On Board Diagnosis) allows continuous diagnosis of the
components on the car correlated with emissions; it also alerts the driver, by turning on
the warning light U(on some versions together with the message + symbol on the
reconfigurable multifunction display) on the
instrument panel when these components
are no longer in peak conditions.
The objective is:
– to keep the system efficiency under control;
– warn when a fault causes emission levels to increase over the threshold established
by European law;
– warn of the need to replace deteriorated components.
146
Pagina 146
The system also has a diagnostic connector
that can be interfaced with appropriate tools,
which makes it possible to read the error codes
stored in the control unit, together with a series of specific parameters for engine operation and diagnosis.
If, turning the ignition key
to MAR, the warning light
U does not turn on or if,
while travelling it turns on glowing steadily or flashing (on some
versions together with the message + symbol on the reconfigurable multifunction display), contact Alfa Romeo Authorised Services as soon as possible.
IMPORTANT After eliminating the inconvenience, to check the system completely, Alfa Romeo Authorised Services are
obliged to run a bench test and, if necessary,
road tests which may also call for a long journey.

various radio functions (e.g.: storing stations) before starting to drive.
Reception conditions
Reception conditions change constantly
when driving. Reception may be disturbed
by the presence of mountains, buildings or
bridges particularly when far away from the
station being listened to.
IMPORTANT When receiving traffic information, the volume may be higher than
normal.
4-07-2008
12:02
WARNING
Too high a volume when driving can put the driver’s life
at risk and that of other people.
Therefoo re the volume should always
be adjusted in such a way that it is
always possible to hear the noises
o f the surrounding environment
(e.g.: horns, ambulance, police
sirens, etc.).

Care and maintenance
Compact Disc
The radio structure ensures long operation
with no need for particular maintenance.
In the event of a fault, contact Alfa Romeo
Authorized Services.
Remember that dirt, marks or distortion on
Compact Disc can cause skipping. To obtain
optimum playing conditions we give the following advice:
To clean the front panel only use a soft,
antistatic cloth. Cleaning and polishing products might spoil the surface.
– Only use Compact Discs which have the
following brand:
– Carefully clean all Compact Discs of fingerprints and dust using a soft cloth. Support Compact Discs from the outer circumference and clean from the centre outwards;
GETTING TO KNOW YOUR CAR
110-185_Alfa147 Q2 GB
– Never use chemical products for cleaning (e.g.: spray cans, antistatic or thinners)
as they might damage the surface of Compact Discs;
– After use, put Compact Discs back in
their container, to avoid marks or scratches
that may cause skipping when playing;
– Do not expose Compact Discs to direct
sunlight, high temperatures or damp for prolonged lengths of time to prevent them from
bending;
– Do not stick labels or write on the recorded surface of Compact Discs.

carefully, holding it by the outer circumference.
Always hold Compact Discs by the outer
circumference. Never touch the surface.
To remove fingerprints and dust, use a soft
cloth starting from the centre of the Compact Disc outwards.
Do not use highly scratched, cracked, or
distorted discs, etc. The use of these discs
will involve malfunctioning or damage to the
player.
Pagina 150
For optimal playing use original CDs only.
Regular operation is not guaranteed if using
R/RW CDs not properly mastered and/or
CDs with max. capacity higher than 650
MB.
IMPORTANT Do not use the protective
sheets for CD in commerce or discs with stabilisers, etc. as they might get stuck in the
internal mechanism and damage the disc.
IMPORTANT Should copy-protected CDs
be used, then, few seconds may be required
for playing them. Moreover, due to the proliferation of always new and different protection methods, it is not guaranteed that
the CD player can play whatever protected
disc. Copy protection is often indicated on
the CD cover in small letters or hard to read
characters. Usually it is indicated by writings
like: “COPY CONTROL”, “COPY PROTECTED”, “THIS CD CANNOT BE PLAYED ON A
PC/MAC”, or it is identified by symbols like:

Protected discs (and their cover) very often are not marked with the audio CD identification symbol:
Pagina 151
IMPORTANT The CD player can read
most of the compression systems currently
on sale (e.g.: LAME, BLADE, XING, FRAUNHOFER) however, due to the evolution of
these systems, reading of all compression formats is not guaranteed.
IMPORTANT When loading a multi-session CD, only the first session will be played.

on the car.
When turning the sound system on (in the
event of code request), the display will show
the word “CDC CODE” for about 2 seconds,
followed by four dashes “- - - -”.
This system warrants the highest level of
security and prevents entry of the secret
code every time the radio supply is disconnected.
If the result of the check is positive, the set
starts working, whereas if the comparison
codes are not the same or if the electronic
control unit (Body Computer) is replaced,
the device informs the user of the need to
enter the secret code according to the procedure described in the following paragraph.

1 to 6, each corresponding to one of the
dashes.
To enter the first digit of the code, press
the corresponding key of the preset stations
(from 1 to 6). Enter the other code digits in
the same way.
If the four figures are not entered within
20 seconds, the display shows the word
“CDC CODE” for 2 seconds and then fours
dashes “- - - -”. This is not to be considered
as an incorrect code entry.
After entering the fourth digit (within 20
seconds), the radio starts working.
If a wrong code is entered, the radio
sounds a beep, the display shows the word
“CDC CODE” for 2 seconds and then fours
dashes “- - - -” to warn the user that it is necessary to enter the correct code.

SYSTEM ACTIVATION
To activate the system after the first connection, turn the ignition key to MAR. When
the system is active, the two leds on the buttons light on. To connect your cellular telephone to the system after the first connection
it is necessary to get inside car with the cellular phone on and the Bluetooth® function
activated.
FIRST CONNECTION
OF THE CELLULAR TELEPHONE
TO THE SYSTEM
To carry out the first connection between
the cellular telephone and the handsfree system it is necessary to activate the Bluetooth® function on your phone, following the
related instructions (see your cellular telephone user’s handbook). When the function
is on, the related icon is displayed.
When connecting for the first time to the
system, you will hear the instruction “Please,
pair device”. Now connect the cellular phone
to the system (see your cellular telephone
user’s handbook.
IMPORTANT If wanting to use the
Bluetooth® handsfree system, it is possible
to avoid repeating the message ““Please, pair
device” setting the minimum value of the
radio PHONE function (see Radio paragraph).
To hear the message “Please, pair device”
it is necessary to turn the radio on.

During the connection procedure,
the cellular telephone display will
show a message to enter the connection code; enter code “1234”
and then confirm.
Afterwards the connection will be carried out
automatically, provided that the two sets are
at very close distance. A beep will communicate that the connection has been established.
Below are some examples of the operations
to make for the first connection on some of
the most known cellular telephones.
IMPORTANT The system works only
when the ignition key is turned to MAR. The
connecting procedure must be carried out only the first time the cellular phone is matched
to the system. If at the first connection, the
handsfree system does not say “Please, pair
device”, reset the system pressing (A) and
(B) simultaneously for at least 2 seconds.
Pagina 178
CONNECTION OF OTHER
TELEPHONES
To connect another cellular phone, repeat
the procedure carried out for the first connection, up to a maximum of 3 cellular
phones. For the connection of other cellular
phones it will be necessary to clear the system (see following paragraph).
CLEARING THE SYSTEM
To clear the system memory press the green
(A) and red (B) buttons for at least 2 seconds.
IMPORTANT Clearing the memory implies the disconnection of all the telephones
memorised, the clearing of all the numbers
stored in the memory of the handsfree system and then calls for a new connection procedure to use the system again.
CONNECTION PRIORITY
If at least 2 cellular phones have been connected, the first one to be connected (in time)
will be that with the highest priority. It means
that when getting inside the car, with the system active (ignition key at MAR), it will
be the first one to be searched and, if present,
connected. If it is not found, the system will
search for the other cellular phones.
MANAGING TELEPHONE CALLS
Below are the general procedures for managing telephone calls, generally applied to all
cellular telephones.
To make a telephone call
manually
– Dial the required number on the cellular
telephone keyboard
– press enter on the phone to start the telephone call
– the telephone call will be automatically
switched over to the handsfree mode (on
some cellular telephone models it is necessary to press the green button (A) to
switchover to the handsfree mode).
4-07-2008
12:02
To make a telephone call with
the voice commands (after
matching voice samples to the
numbers in the phone directory)
– press the green button (A)
– wait for the beep and/or the word
“PHONE” to be shown on the radio display
– pronounce the name of the person
you wish to call
– the system will repeat the pronounced
name to confirm it and then make the
telephone call
– if the name pronounced by the system
for confirmation is different from the wished
one, press the red button (B) and repeat
the procedure.
Pagina 179
The telephone call made with the voice
commands is possible only for the names
in the directory matched to a voice sample.
The handsfree system can recognise all
the voice samples recorded on the cellular
phone, thus making it possible to call with
the voice command all the numbers
matched to the voice samples.
Anyway, it is possible to memorise (depending on the type of cellular telephone) the voice
samples directly in the handsfree system directory, but, in this case, the handsfree system
will recognise only these voice samples.
IMPORTANT To be recognised by the
system the voice commands must be pronounced keeping a natural tone, articulating the words well and clearly.
For an optimal result, it is suggested to
associate the voice samples in the following conditions:
– with doors and windows closed
– with ventilation and engine off (ignition key at MAR)

REFUELLING
PETROL ENGINES
The antipollution devices
on the car oblige the use of
only four-star unleaded
petrol with octane number (R.O.N.)
of 95 or over.
Pagina 182
To prevent accidentally filling with leaded
petrol, the diameter of the fuel tank filler
is of such a size as not to accept the nozzle of this type of petrol
An inneficient catalyst
leads to harmful emission
at the exhaust, thus environment pollution.
JTD ENGINES
Never use leaded petrol,
as this would irreversibly
damage the exhaust gas
catalyst. If leaded fuel is added to
the fuel tank, no matter how small
the quantity, DO NOT START THE
ENGINE. Do not attempt to dilute
the fuel in the tank, completely
drain the fuel circuit and tank.
182
The car must only be filled
with fuel oil for motor vehicles, in compliance with
European Specification EN590. The
use of other products or mixtures
may irreparably damage the engine
with invalidatoion of the warranty due to the damage caused. In
the event of accidentally filling
with another type of fuel, do not
start the engine and empty the
tank. If the engine has been run
even for only a very short time, in
addition to the tank, it is also necessary to empty the whole supply
circuit.
If the outside temperature is very low, the
diesel thickens due to the formation of paraffins and could clog the diesel fuel filter.
In order to avoid these problems, different
types of diesel are distributed according to
the season: summer type, winter type arctic type (mountains/cold areas).
If refuelling with diesel fuel not suitable for
the current temperature, mix diesel fuel with
TUTELA DIESEL ART additive in the proportions stated on the can, putting first the
antifreeze in the tank and then the diesel
fuel.
TUTELA DIESEL ART shall be added to
diesel fuel before the due to cold take place.
Adding it later will be worthless. If driving or
parking the vehicle for a long period in cold
areas/mountains, refuel with the diesel fuel available at local filling stations. In this
situation you are also recommended to have
in the tank an amount of fuel 50% higher
than usable capacity.

FUEL CAP (fig. 176)
The fuel cap (A) is key-lockable and has a
catch to prevent misplacing it (B) that fastens it to the flap (C); to gain access to it,
open the flap then use the ignition key to turn
counter-clocwise and remove the cap.
When refuelling, hook the cap to the device
on the inner flap, as illustrated.
Pagina 183
IMPORTANT The sealing of the tank
may cause light pressurising. A little breathing off, while slackening the cap, is absolutely normal.
After refuelling, turn the cap clockwise until one or more clicks are heard; then turn
the key clockwise to lock. Close the flap.
WARNING
Do not go near the fuel
filler with naked flames or
lit cigarettes: danger of fire. Avoid
going too near the fuel filler with
your face, to avoid inhaling harmful vapours.
IMPORTANT For your safety, before
starting the engine, also make sure that the
fuel nozzle is correctly inserted in the fuel
distributor.

ENVIRONMENTAL
PROTECTION
The devices used to reduce petrol engine
emissions are:
– Trivalent catalytic converter (catalytic silencer);
– Lambda sensors;
– Anti-evaporation system.
Do not run the engine, even for a test, with
one or more glow plugs disconnected.
Pagina 184
The emission reducing devices are:
– Oxidising catalyst;
– Exhaust gas re-circulation system
(E.G.R.);
– Particulate filter (DPF) (only for versions/markets where applicable).
WARNING
Due to the high temperatures reached during operation of the catalytic silencer and
the particull ate filter (DPF) (only for
versions/markets where applicable) the car should not be parked
over inn flammable materials (grass,
dry leaves, pine needles, etc.): danger of fire.
4-07-2008

DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter)
(only for versions/
markets where applicable)
It is a mechanical filter, fitted in the exhaust system, which traps the carbon particles present in the exhaust gases of diesel
engines.
The filter function is to eliminate almost
completely the emissions of carbon particles,
in accordance with the current/future regulations.
During normal use of the car, the engine
control unit records a series of data concerning the use (time, type of road, temperature reached, etc.) and calculates the
quantity of particulate in the filter.
Pagina 185
As this filter is an accumulating system
which must be regenerated (cleaned) burning the carbon particles, the regeneration
procedure is managed automatically by the
engine control unit according to the filter conditions and the car using conditions. During
the filter regeneration the following phenomena may occur: raising of idling, activation of electric fan, limited growth of
smoke level, high temperature at the exhaust.
These situations must no be considered as
faults and do not affect the car performance
and the environment.
Particulate filter clogged
When the particulate filter is clogged, the
instrument cluster h warning light
(on some versions the symbol h is
displayed) turns on. In this case you are
advised to keep the car travelling until the
h warning light goes off (or the symbol h on the display goes off).

STARTING
THE ENGINE
IMPORTANT The car is fitted with an
electronic engine lock device. If the engine
fails to start, see the “Alfa Romeo CODE
system”.
We recommend that during the initial period you do
not drive to full car performance (for example excessive acceleration, long journeys at top
speed, hard braking, etc.).
186
Pagina 186
ATTENZIONE
Running the engine in confined areas is extremely
dangerous. The engine consumes
oxygen and produces carbon
monoxide which is a highly toxic
and lethal gas.
The ignition switch is fitted with a safety
device which obliges the driver to return the
key to the STOP position before repeating the starting operation if the engine does
not start immediately.
Similarly, when the engine is running, the
device prevents the key being moved from
the MAR to the AVV position.
When the engine is
switched off never leave
the ignition key in the
MAR position to prevent pointless
current absoption from draining the
battery.

STARTING PROCEDURE
FOR JTD VERSIONS
STARTING PROCEDURE
FOR PETROL VERSIONS
IMPORTANT It is important never to
press the accelerator before the engine
has started.
1) Make sure the handbrake is
engaged.
1) Make sure the handbrake is engaged.
2) Move the gear lever to neutral.
3) Fully depress the clutch pedal, so that
the starter motor is not forced to crank the
gears.
4) Ensure that the electric systems and
devices, especially if they absorb high
quantities of energy (e.g. heated
rearscreen), are switched off.
5) Turn the ignition key to the AVV position and release it as soon as the engine
starts.
6) If the engine does not start, return
the key to STOP, then repeat the procedure.
2) Set the gearshift lever to neutral.
3) Turn the ignition key to MAR. The reconfigurable multifunction display will show
the m warning light.
4) Wait for the m to turn off, which
takes place sooner, the warmer the
engine. With the engine very warm the
light might stay on for such a short time
as to pass unnoticed.
IMPORTANT The electric devices that
absorb a high amount of energy (climate control, rearscreen heating, etc.) are
cut off automatically during starting.
If the engine does not start at the first
attempt, move the ignition key to STOP
before repeating starting.
If starting is difficult (with the Alfa
Romeo CODE system working properly),
do not insist with prolonged attempts.
Only use an auxiliary battery if the cause
is due to low battery charge. Never use a
battery charger to start the engine.

186-196_Alfa147 Q2 GB
5) Fully depress the clutch pedal.
6) Turn the ignition key to AVV as
soon as the m warning light has gone
out. Waiting too long, makes the warming
work of the glow plugs useless.
IMPORTANT If it is difficult to start

WARMING THE ENGINE
– Drive off slowly, at medium revs without accelerating abruptly.
– Do not drive at full performance for the
initial kilometres of the journey. Wait until the engine coolant temperature reaches
50-60 °C.
SWITCHING OFF
For cars with turbocharger in particular, but for all
cars in general, sharp accelerating should be avoided before switching the engine off. A
“kick” on the accelerator serves
no purpose, consumes fuel pointlessly and may cause serious damage to the turbocharger impeller
bearings.
– Release the accelerator pedal and wait
until the engine reaches idle speed.
– Turn the ignition key to the STOP
position and switch off the engine.
IMPORTANT After a tiring journey it is
advisable to let the engine “get its breath
back” allowing it to idle a while to lower the
temperature in the engine compartment.
188
Pagina 188
IMPORTANT If the engine turns off with
the car on the move, the next time it is started, the Alfa Romeo CODE warning light may
turn on (Y). In this case, check that switching off and starting the engine again with
the car stationary, the warning light stays
off. If not, contact Alfa Romeo Authorised
Services.
EMERGENCY STARTING
If the Alfa Romeo CODE system does not
recognise the code transmitted by the ignition key (warning light Y on the instrument cluster glowing on steadily) emergency starting may be carried out using the
code of the CODE card.
For the correct procedure see the chapter
“In an emergency”.
Never bump, tow, or
coast start the car as this
would cause fuel to flow
into the catalyst causing irreversible damage.
WARNING
Remember that the servobrake and power steering are not operational until the
engine has been started, therefore much more effort than usual
is required on the brake pedal and
steering wheel.

FUEL ECONOMY
Electric services
GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS
– Engage first gear if the car is faced uphill or reverse if the car is facing downhill.
Use electric devices only for the amount
of time needed. Rearscreen heating, additional headlights, windscreen wipers and
heater fan need a considerable amount of
energy, therefore increasing the requirement of current fuel consumption (up to
+25% in the urban cycle).
Car maintenance
Climate control system
– Turn the front wheels so that the carwill immediately come to a halt if the
handbrake slips.
To take care of the car maintenance
have the checks and adjustments carried
out in accordance with the “Scheduled
Maintenance Programme”.
When the engine is
switched off never leave
the ignition key in the
MAR position to prevent pointless current absorption from
draining the battery.
Tyres
The climate control system is a further
load bearing heavily on the engine inducing higher consumption levels(up to
+20% on average). Outside temperature
permitting, preferably use the air vents.
When the car is parked, proceed as follows:
– Switch off the engine.
– Engage the handbrake.
By following a few simple guidelines, it
is possible to save car running costs and reduce harmful emissions.
Check the pressure of the tyres routinely
at an interval of no more than 4 weeks: if
the pressure is too low consumption levels
increase as resistance to rolling is higher.
CORRECT USE OF THE CAR
186-196_Alfa147 Q2 GB
Aerodynamic items
The use of non-certified aerodynamic
items may adversely affect air drag and
consumption levels.
Useless loads
WARNING
Never leave children
unattended in the car.
Always remove the ignition key
when leaving the car and take it
with you.
Never travel with an overload in the
boot. The weight of the car (especially in
urban traffic), and its geometry heavily
affect consumption levels and stability.

DRIVING STYLE
Gearshifting
CONDITIONS OF USE
Starting
As soon as the conditions of the traffic and
road allow, use a higher gear.
Cold starting
Do not warm the engine with the car at a
standstill or at idle or high speed: under
these conditions the engine warms up much
more slowly, increasing electrical consumption and emissions. It is therefore advisable
to move off immediately, slowly, avoiding
high speeds. This way the engine will warm
faster.
Pointless manoeuvres
Avoid accelerating when waiting at traffic
lights or before switching off the engine. This
and also double declutching is absolutely
pointless on modern cars and also increase
consumption and pollution.
Using a low gear to obtain brilliant performance increases consumption.
In the same way improper use of a high
gear increases consumption, emissions and
engine wear.
Top speed
Fuel consumption considerably increases
with speed. Maintain an even as possible
speed, avoiding superfluous braking and
accelerating, which cost in terms of both
fuel and emissions.
Acceleration
Accelerating heavily taking the engine to
a high speed has a considerably adverse
effect on consumption and emission levels; it is wise to accelerate gradually and not
exceed the maximum torque.
190
Short journeys and frequent cold starts
do not allow the engine to reach optimum
operating temperature. This results in a
significant increase in consumption levels
(from +15 to +30% on the urban cycle)
and emission of harmful substances.
Traffic situations and road
conditions
Rather high consumption levels are tied
to situations with heavy traffic, for example in queues with frequent use of the
lower gears or in cities with many traffic
lights. Also winding mounting roads and
rough road surfaces adversely affect consumption.
Stopping in the traffic
During prolonged stops (e.g. level crossings) it is advisable to switch the engine
off.

COMFORT
SUSPENSIONS
WINTER TYRES
(for versions/markets where
applicable)
Use winter tyres of the same size as the
normal tyres provided on the car.
The car can be fitted with a particular
type of suspension trim, able to increase
the comfort during travelling.
Alfa Romeo Authorised Services will be
pleased to advise you on the choice of the
tyre most suited to the use the Customer
intends to make of it.
For the type of tyre to be used, inflation
pressures and specifications of winter tyres,
follow the instructions given in the
“Technical Specifications” chapter.
IMPORTANT When winter tyres are
used with a maximum speed index below
the one that can be reached by the car
(increased by 5%), place a notice in the
passenger’s compartment, plainly in the driver’s view, which states the maximum permissible speed of the winter tyres (as per
CE Directive).
Fit the same type of tyre on all four wheels
(brand and profile) to ensure higher driving
safety when braking and good handling.
CORRECT USE OF THE CAR
186-196_Alfa147 Q2 GB
Remember that it is inappropriate to
change the direction of rotation of tyres.
The winter features of these tyres are
reduced considerably when the tread
depths is below 4 mm. In this case they
should be replaced.
Due to the winter features, under normal
conditions of use or long motorway journeys, the performance of these tyres is
lower than that of normal tyres.
It is necessary therefore to limit their use
to the purposes for which they are certified.

SNOW CHAINS
Use of snow chains should be in compliance with local regulations.
Use snow chains with reduced size with
maximum protrusion beyond the tyre profile of 12 mm.
Snow chains may not be
used on tyres type 205/
55 R16” 91V - 205/55
R16” 91W or 215/45 R17” 87W
due to interference with the front
suspension strut.
Snow chains should only be applied to the
drive wheels (front).
Before purchasing or using snow chains,
you are recommended to contact Alfa
Romeo Authorised Services.
Check the tensions of the chain after the
first few metres have been driven.
192
Pagina 192
With snow chains fitted it
is advisable to turn off
the ASR system. Press
the ASR-OFF button, led on button on.
Snow chains cannot be
fitted to the compact
spare wheel. So, if a front
(drive) wheel is punctured and
chains are needed, a rear wheel
should be fitted to the front of
the car (inflate the tyres to the
specified pressure as soon as
possible) and the spare wheel
should be fitted to the rear. This
way, with two normal drive
wheels, snow chains can be fitted
to them to solve an emergency.
Keep your speed
down when snow
chains are fitted.
Do not exceed 50 km/h. Avoid
potholes, steps and pavements to
prevent damaging the tyres, suspension and steering.

CAR INACTIVITY
If the car is to be left inactive for long
periods, the following precautions should
be noted:
– house the car under acover in a dry
and possibly ventilated place;
– engage a gear;
– check that the handbrake is not
engaged;
– disconnect the battery negative terminal from the battery and check the battery
charge. This check should be repeated
every three months during stowage.
Charge the battery if the indicator shows
(where provided) a dark colour in the central green area;
– clean and protect the paintwork by
protective wax;
– clean and protect the metal polished
parts with marketed products;
Pagina 193
– cover the rubber windscreen and
rearscreen wiper blades with talcum powder and raise them off the glass;
– open the windows slightly;
– cover the car with a fabric or perforated plastic cover. Do not use compact plastic covers which prevent the humidity on
the surface on the car from evaporating;
– inflate the tyres to a pressure of +0.5
bars above normal and check it periodically;
TOWING TRAILERS
WARNINGS
For towing caravans or trailers the car
must be fitted with a certified tow hook
and an adequate electric system.
Installation should be carried out by specialised personnel who release a special
document for circulation on the road.
– if the battery is not disconnected from
the electric system, check its charge every
thirty days and if the indicator shows a
dark colour in the green area, charge the
battery;
Install any specific and/or additional
rearview mirrors as specified by law.
Remember that when towing a trailer,
steep hills are harder to climb, the braking
spaces increase and overtaking takes
longer depending on the overall weight.
– do not empty the engine cooling system.
Engage a low gear when driving downhill, rather than constantly using the brake.

THE TOW HOOK
The towing device should be fastened to
the body by specialised personnel according to the following instructions and any
additional and/or integrative information
supplied by the Manufacturer of the device
itself.
The towing device must meet current
regulations with reference to Directive
94/20/CEE and subsequent amendments.
For any version the towing device used
must match the towable weight of the car
on which it is to be installed.
For the electric connection a unified connector should be used which is generally
placed on a special bracket normally fastened to the towing device itself.
For the electric connection a 7 or 13

STARTING BY INERTIA
IN THE EVENT OF A PUNCTURE
Never push, tow or coast
start the car. This could
cause fuel to flow into the
catalyst damaging it irreversibly
IMPORTANT If the car is equipped
with “Kit for tyre quick repair Fix&Go“,
see the instructions contained in the following chapter.
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
Wheel changing and correct use of the
jack and compact spare wheel (for versions/markets where applicable) call for
some precautions as listed below.
WARNING
Remember that the engine
brake and power steering
are not operational until the engine
is started, therefore, much greater
effort than usual is needed on the
brake pedal and steering wheel.
WARNING
Signal the presence of the
stationary car according
to current regulations: hazard
warning lights, reflecting triangle
etc..
Any passengers should leave the
car and wait for the wheel to be
changed out of harm of the traffic.
If parked on a slope or rough surface, chock the wheels with
wedges or other suitable devices
to prevent the car from rolling.
WARNING
Never start the engine
with the car jacked. When
driving with a trailer, disconnect
the trailer before raising the car.
The compact spare wheel is specific to your car, do not use it on
other models, or use the spare
wheel of other models on your
cars.
Should the type of wheels used
be changed (alloy rims instead of
steel), it is also necessary to
change the whole set of fastening
bolts with others of suitable size.
The compact spare wheel is narrower than normal wheels, it
should be used only for the distance necessary to reach a service point to have the punctured
tyre repaired and during its use,
the car speed must not exceed 80
km/h.

WARNING
The spare wheel has a
sticker that summarises
the main cautions for use and limitations. Ths sticker should never
be removed or covered. Th sticker contains the following in four
languages:
CAUTION! FOR TEMPORARY USE
ONLY! MAX 80 km/h! REPLACE
BY NORMAL WHEEL AS SOON AS
POSSIBLE. DO NOT COVER THIS
LABEL IN USE.
Never fit a wheel cap on a compact
spare wheel.
The car will handle differently with
the spare wheel fitted: avoid
heavy braking and accelerating,
sharp corners and a bends.
WARNING
The life of the spare wheel
is approx. 3000 km, after
this distance it should be replaced
with another of the same type.
Never attempt to fit a conventional tyre on a rim designed for use as
a compact spare wheel. Have the
punctured wheel repaired and refitted as soon as possible. Two or
more compact spare wheels should
never be used together. Do not
grease the threads of bolts before
installing them; they might slip out.
The jack only serves for changing
the wheels on the car with which it
is provided or on cars of the same
model. It must not be used for
other purposes such as for instance
raising cars of other models. In no
case should it be used for repairs
under the car. Incorrect positioning
of the jack may cause the jacked
car to fall. Do not use the jack for
higher capacities than stated on its
label.
WARNING
Snow chains cannot be
fitted on the compact
spare wheel, so, if a front wheel
is punctured and chains need to
be fitted, the front axle should be
fitted with normal wheels and
the compact spare wheel fitted to
the rear. This way, with two normal wheels at the front, snow
chain can be fitted thereby solving the emergency situation.
Never tamper with the inflation
valve.
Do not insert tools of any kind
between the rim and the tyre.
Check, and if necessary, restore
the pressure of the tyres and of
the compact spare wheel to the
values given in the “Technical
Specifications” chapter.

off) mainly due to a fault or improper action
on the system.
(C) - Fuse with damaged filament.
When a device does not work, check the
efficiency of its fuse. The conductor element(A-fig. 46) must be intact; if not,
replace the fuse with one of the same amp
rating (same colour).

IN THE EVENT OF A FLAT BATTERY
Before anything else, you are advised to
read the precautions for preventing the battery from draining and for ensuring long life
in the “Car maintenance” chapter.
CHARGING THE BATTERY
IMPORTANT The battery charging procedure is described only for information purposes. This operation should be carried out
by Alfa Romeo Authorised Services.
Charging should be slow at a low amp rating for 24 hours. Charging for a longer time
may damage the battery.
Charge the battery as follows:
STARTING WITH AN
AUXILIARY BATTERY
See “Starting with an auxiliary battery” in
this chapter.
– Disconnect the battery negative terminal (–).
– Connect the charger cables to the battery
terminal ensuring that the bias is correct.
– Turn on the charger.
– After charging, turn off the charger before disconnecting it from the battery.
– Re-connect the battery negative terminal (–).
WARNING
The liquid contained in the
battery is poisonous and
corrosive. Avoid contact with the
skin or eyes. The battery should be
charged in a well ventilated place,
away from naked flames or possible sources of sparks: danger of
explosion and fire.
WARNING
Never attempt to charge a
frozen battery: it must
firstly be thawed, otherwise it
may burst. If freezing has occurred,
the battery should be checked before charging by specialised personnel, to make sure that the internal elements are not damaged
and that the body is not cracked,
with the risk of leaking poisonous
and corrosive acid.
IN AN EMERGENCY
197-233_Alfa147 Q2 GB
Strictly avoid using a battery charger to start the
engine: you may damage
the electronic systems, in particular the ignition and fuel supply control units.

IF THE CAR IS TO BE TOWED
The tow ring supplied with the car is
housed in the tool box under the boot mat.
To install the tow ring, proceed as follows:
– Take the tow ring from the tool box.
– Remove the cover (A) snap-fitted on
the front (fig. 52) or rear bumper (fig.
53). To do this, if using the flat-bladed
screwdriver provided, protect the tip with a
soft cloth to avoid damaging the car.
WARNING
Before tightening the ring
carefully clean the threaded housing. Before beginning to
tow the car, make sure that the
ring is firmly tightened in its
threaded housing.
– Firmly screw the ring in its housing.
A0A1083m
230
fig. 52
A0A1084m
fig. 53
WARNING
Before starting to tow,
turn the ignition key to
MAR and back to STOP again without removing it. Removing the key
automatically engages the steering
lock resulting in the impossibility
to steer the wheels. When towing
remember that without the help of
the engine brake and power steering greater effort is required on the
pedal and steering wheel. Do not
use flexible cables for towing and
avoid jerks. During towing operations make sure that fastening the
joints does not damage the components in contact with it. When
towing the car, it is compulsory to
follow specific traffic regulations
concerning both the towing device
and behaviour on the road.
4-07-2008
12:04
Pagina 231
WARNING
Do not start the engine
when towing the car.
IF THE CAR IS TO BE
LIFTED
USING THE JACK
IMPORTANT For versions with Selespeed transmission, make sure that the
gears are in neutral (N) (checking that the
car moves if pushed) and then proceed as
for towing a normal car with mechanical
transmission, following the instructions given previously.
Should it be impossible to set the gears to
neutral, do not tow the car and contact Alfa Romeo Authorised Services.
See paragraph “In the event of a puncture” in this chapter.
WARNING
The car may fall if the jack
is not positioned correctly.
Never use the jack for higher capacities than the one stated on the
label.
Please be informed that:
IN AN EMERGENCY
197-233_Alfa147 Q2 GB
– lthe jack mass is approx. 2.100 kg;
– the jack requires no adjustment;
– the jack cannot be repaired and in the
event of a fault it must be replaced by another original one;
– no tool other than its crancking device
may be fitted on the jack.
USING AN ARM LIFT OR
WORKSHOP LIFT
The car should be lifted only at the side
setting the ends of the arms of the workshop lift in the area shown in fig. 54-55.
WARNING
The purpose of the jack is
only for replacing wheels
on the car with which it is provided or on cars of the same model. It
must never be used for other purposes such as for example raising
cars of other models. In no case
must it be used for repairs under
the car.

Take care when positioning the arms of the lift or
workshop lift to avoid
damaging the side strips.
IN THE EVENT
OF AN ACCIDENT
– In motorways pileups, especially with
poor visibility, the risk of being involved in
other crashes is high. Leave the car immediately and go beyond the guard-rail.
– It is important to keep calm.
– If you are not directly involved, stop at
least a few dozen metres away from the accident.
– If doors are blocked, do not try to get
out of the car breaking the windscreen which
is stratified. The windows and rear screen
are easier to break.
– On motorways, stop without blocking
the emergency lane.
– Remove the ignition key of the cars involved.
– Turn the engine off and the hazard warning lights on.
– If you note a smell of fuel or other chemical product, do not smoke and have cigarettes stubbed out.
– At night, illuminate the place of the accident with the headlights.
– Take care, do not risk being run over.
– Signal the accident placing the triangle
at regulation distance in a clearly visible place.
A0A1086m
232
fig. 55
– Call the emergency organisation, giving the most accurate information possible.
On motorways use the special phones provided.
– To put out fires, even small ones, use
the extinguisher, blankets, sand, or earth.
Never use water.
– If use of the lighting system is not necessary, disconnect the battery negative terminal (–).

Pagina 233
IF PEOPLE ARE INJURED
FIRST AID KIT
– An injured person must never be abandoned. Helping is compulsory also for persons not directly involved in the accident.
In addition to the first-aid kit, it is also wise
to keep an extinguisher and a blanket in
the car.
– Do not crowd around injured people.
– Reassure the injured person that help
is on the way, and stay near to overcome
any panic.
IN AN EMERGENCY
197-233_Alfa147 Q2 GB
– Release or cut the seat belt restraining
injured persons.
– Do not give injured persons anything
to drink.
– An injured person should never be
moved except in the following circumstances.
– Remove an injured person from the car
only in danger of fire, sinking or falling.
When removing an injured person: do not
pull the limbs or bend the head and keep
the body as horizontal as possible.

VEHICLE MAINTENANCE
SCHEDULED
SERVICING
Correct maintenance is determined in ensuring long car life under the best conditions.
This is why Alfa Romeo has programmed
a series of checks and maintenance operations every 20,000 km.
IMPORTANT On versions fitted with reconfigurable multifunction display, at 2000
km from the maintenance deadline, the display will show “REFER TO SERVICE MANUAL” which is shown again turning the ignition key to MAR, every 200 km. For further details, see “Service” in the “Reconfigurable multifunction display”.
234
Pagina 234
It is however wise to remember that Programmed Maintenance does not completely cover all the car’s requirements: also in
the initial period before the 20,000 km service coupon and later, between one coupon
and another, ordinary care is still necessary
such as for example routinely checking and
topping up the level of fluids, checking the
tyre pressure, etc...
IMPORTANT The Programmed Maintenance coupons are specified by the Manufacturer. The failure to have them carried out
may invalidate the warranty.
The Programmed Maintenance service is
carried out by all Alfa Romeo Authorised Services, at pre-established times.
If during each operation, in addition to the
ones programmed, the need arises for further replacements or repairs, these may be
carried out only with the explicit agreement
of the customer.
IMPORTANT You are advised to contact
Alfa Romeo Authorised Services in the event
of any minor operating faults, without waiting for the next service coupon.

IMPORTANT
Battery
It is advisable to check the battery charge,
preferably at the onset of winter, to prevent
the possibility of the electrolyte freezing.
This check should be carried out more frequently if the car is used mainly for short
trips, or if it is fitted with accessories that
permanently absorb electricity even with the
ignition key removed, especially in the case
of after market accessories.
If the car is used in hot climates or particularly harsh conditions it is wise to check the
level of the battery fluid (electrolyte) more
frequently than specified in the Scheduled
Maintenance Programme.
Car maintenance should be
entrusted to Alfa Romeo
Authorised Services. For
routine and minor maintenance operations you wish to carry out
yourself, always make sure you
have the proper equipment, genuine Alfa Romeo spares and the
necessary fluids; do not however
carry out these operations if you

WARNING
Never attempt to charge a
frozen battery: it must
firstly be thawed, otherwise it
may burst. If freezing has occurred,
the battery should be checked before charging by specialised personnel, to make sure that the internal elements are not damaged
and that the body is not cracked,
with the risk of leaking poisonous
and corrosive acid.
IMPORTANT If the battery is kept with
a charge of below 50% it is damaged by sulphation, its starting capability is reduced and
it is also more subject to the possibility of
freezing (this may occur already at –10
°C). In the event of a prolonged inactivity,
refer to the paragraph “car inactivity”, in the
chapter “Correct use of the car”.
CHANGING THE BATTERY
When changing the battery it should be replaced with another original one with the
same characteristics. If it is replaced by a
battery with different characteristics, the
maintenance intervals given in the Scheduled Maintenance Programme in this chapter are no longer valid and for maintenance
it will be necessary to follow the battery
Manufacturer’s instructions.
USEFUL HINTS TO EXTEND
THE LIFE OF YOUR BATTERY
To avoid rapidly draining the battery and
ensure that it continues to work correctly,
the following should be noted:
– The terminals must always be firmly
tightened.
– Within reason, avoid using electrical devices for a long time when the engine is
switched off (radio, hazard warning lights,
parking lights, etc.).
– Before carrying out any work on the
electric system, disconnect the negative cable from the battery.
– If after buying the car, you wish to install electric accessories which require a permanent electric supply (alarm, voice feature,
radionavigator with satellite antitheft function etc.) or accessories that burden the electric system, contact Alfa Romeo Authorised
Services whose qualified personnel, in addition to suggesting the most suitable devices belonging to Lineaccessori Alfa Romeo,
will evaluate the overall electric absorption,
checking whether the car’s electric system
is capable of withstanding the load required,
or whether it should be integrated with a
more powerful battery. In fact, as some of
these devices continue absorbing energy
even when the ignition key is off (car stationary, engine off), they gradually drain the
battery.
VEHICLE MAINTENANCE
234-257_Alfa147 Q2 GB
– When the car is parked in a garage, ensure that the doors, bonnet, boot and inner lids are closed properly so that the lights
do not stay on permanently.

You are also reminded that services with
high current absorption switched on by the
user, such as for example: baby bottle warmers, vacuum cleaner, mobile phone, mini
fridge, etc., quicken the battery draining process if they are turned on with the
engine off or running at idle speed.
IMPORTANT When installing additional systems on the car, bear in mind that improper branches on connections of the car
wiring are dangerous, particularly if safety
devices are involved.

– Do not check for current in the cables by
short-circuiting the ends.
– If electric welding is to be carried out on
the body, remember to disconnect the electronic control units, or remove them if the
work involves high temperatures.
In the event of work on the electric system
or emergency starting, the instructions given below must absolutely be adhered to:
– Always switch off the engine before disconnecting the battery from the electric system.
– If it is necessary to charge the battery,
always disconnect it from the electric system.
– When starting in an emergency, only
use an auxiliary battery and not a battery
charger.
– Check that the bias is correct and that
the connections between the battery and
the electric system are in efficient conditions.
– Before disconnecting or connecting the
terminals of electronic units, ensure that the
ignition key is not in the MAR position.

WHEELS AND TYRES
Incorrect pressure causes abnormal tyre
wear (fig. 16):
A - Normal pressure; tread evenly worn.
TYRE PRESSURE
Check the tyre pressure of every wheel, including the spare, every two weeks and before a long journey.
The pressure should be checked with the
tyre rested and cold.
It is normal for the pressure to increase
when the car is in use. For the correct tyre
inflation pressure, see “Wheels” in “Technical specifications” section.
WARNING
Remember that car road
holding also depends on
correct tyre inflation pressure.
B - Low pressure: tread particularly worn
at edges.
C - High pressure: tread particularly worn
in the centre.
WARNING
Excessively low pressure
causes overheating of tyre
with the possibility of serious damage to it.
Tyres should be changed when the tread
thickness is reduced to 1.6 mm. In any case
follow local regulations.
A0A0225m
WARNINGS
Where possible, avoid sudden braking, tyre
squealing starts, etc.
Particularly avoid violent bumps against
kerbs, potholes or obstacles of various kinds.
Prolonged driving on rough roads may damage the tyres. Routinely check the tyres for
cuts on the sides, swelllings or uneven tread
wear. If necessary contact Alfa Romeo Authorised Serrvices.
VEHICLE MAINTENANCE
234-257_Alfa147 Q2 GB
Avoid overloading the car when travelling:
this may cause serious damage to the
wheels and tyres.
If a tyre is punctured, stop immediately
and change it to avoid damage to the tyre
itself, the rim, suspensions and steering system. Tyres age even if they are not used
much. Cracks in the tread rubber are a sign
of aging. In any case, if the tyres have been
on the car for 6 years, they should be
checked by specialised personnel, to see if
they can still be used. Also remember to
check the compact spare wheel.
In the case of replacement, always fit new
tyres, avoiding those of dubious origin.

The Alfa 147 uses Tubeless tyres.
Never use an inner tube with these tyres.
If a tyre is changed, also change the inflation valve.
To allow even wear between the front and
rear tyres it is advisable to change over every
10-15 thousand kilometres, keeping them
on the same side of the car so as not to reverse the direction of rotation (fig. 17).
WARNING
Alloy rim painting involving temperatures exceeding 150°C should be avoided since
wheel mechanical characteristics
could be impaired.
RUBBER HOSES
WARNING
Do not cross switch the

vice versa.
A0A1087m
As far as the brake system and fuel supply rubber hoses are concerned, carefully follow the Scheduled Maintenance Programme. Indeed, ozone, high temperatures
and the prolonged lack of fluid in the system may cause hardening and cracking of
the hoses, with possible leaks. Careful control is therefore necessary.
WINDSCREEN/
REARSCREEN WIPERS
BLADES
Periodically clean the rubber part using special products; TUTELA PROFESSIONAL
SC 35 is recommended.
If the rubber blades are bent or worn they
should be replaced. In any case they should
be changed once a year.
A few simple notions can reduce the possibility of damage to the blades:
– If the temperature falls below zero make
sure that ice has not frozen the rubber
against the glass. If necessary, thaw using
an antifreeze product.
– Remove any snow from the glass: in addition to protecting the blades, this prevents
effort on the motor and overheating.
– Do not operate the windscreen and
rearscreen wipers on dry glass.
WARNING
Driving with worn wiper
blades is a serious hazard,
because visibility is reduced in bad
weather.

BODYWORK
PROTECTION FROM
ATMOSPHERIC AGENTS
The main causes of corrosion are:
– atmospheric pollution
– salty air and humidity (coastal areas, or
hot humid climates)
– seasonal environment conditions.
Not to be underestimated is also the abrasive action of wind-borne atmospheric dust
and sand and mud and gravel raised by other cars.
On your Alfa 147, Alfa Romeo has
implemented the best manufacturing technologies to effectively protect the bodywork
against corrosion.
A0A1013m
254
fig. 22
These include:
– Painting products and systems which
give the car particular resistance to corrosion
and abrasion.
– Use of galvanised (or pretreated) steel
sheets, with high resistance to corrosion.
– Spraying of the underbody, engine compartment, wheel arches and other parts with
highly protective wax products.
– Spraying of plastic parts, with a protective function, in the more exposed points:
underdoor, inner wheel arch linings, etc.
– Use of “open” boxed sections to prevent condensation and pockets of moisture
from triggering rust inside.
CAR EXTERIOR AND
UNDERBODY WARRANTY
The Alfa 147 is guaranteed against
perforation due to rust of any original element of the structure or body. For the general terms of this warranty, refer to the Warranty booklet.
4-07-2008

ADVICE FOR PRESERVING
THE BODYWORK
Paint
The paintwork does not only serve an aesthetic purpose but also protects the underlying sheet metal. In the case of deep scrapes
or scores, you are advised to have the necessary touching up carried out immediately
to avoid the formation of rust. Only original
products should be used for touching up paint
(see “Body paint identification plate” in the
“Technical Specifications” chapter).
Normal paint maintenance consists in
washing at intervals depending on the conditions and environment of use. For example, in highly polluted areas, or if the roads
are sprayed with salt, it is wise to wash the
car more frequently.
Detergents cause water
pollution. Therefore the engine compartment should
be washed in areas equipped for
collecting and purifying the liquid
used in the washing process.
Pagina 255
To correctly wash the car:
1) Spray the car with a low pressure jet of
water.
2) Pass a sponge moistened with a light
detergent solution, rinsing the sponge frequently.
3) Rinse well with water and dry with a
jet of air or chamois leather.
f the vehicle is washed in an automatic car
wash, follow these recommendations:
– remove the antenna from the roof to
avoid damages;
– water with a cleansing solution must be
used for washing;
– rinse accurately to avoid cleansing solution residues which may remain on the
body or hidden parts.
Some automatic systems
provided with old generation and/or not correctly
maintained brushes may damage the
varnish, easing the creation of micro-scratches, especially on dark
colours. To remove those scratches,
slightly polish with a specific product.
When drying, take particular care with the
less visible parts like door surrounds, bonnet and around the headlights where water may stagnate. The car should not be taken to a closed area immediately, but left in
the open so that residual water can evaporate.
Do not wash the car after it has been left
in the sun or with the bonnet hot: this may
alter the shine of the paintwork.

234-257_Alfa147 Q2 GB
Exterior plastic parts must be cleaned in
the same way as the rest of the car.
Where possible, do not park under trees;
the resinous substance many species release
give the paint a dull appearance and increase the possibility of triggering rust
processes.
IMPORTANT Bird droppings must be
washed off immediately and thoroughly as
the acid they contain is particularly aggressive.

Windows
Use specific products to clean the windows.
Use clean cloths to avoid scratching or altering the transparency of the glass.
IMPORTANT The inside of the
rearscreen should be wiped gently with a
cloth in the direction of the filaments to
avoid damaging the heating device.
Engine compartment
At the end of the winter the engine compartment should be carefully washed, without directing the jet against electronic control units. Contact a specialised workshop to
have this done.
Detergents pollute water.
The car should therefore be
washed in areas equipped
for the collection and purification
of the liquid used in the washing
process.
IMPORTANT The car should be washed
with the engine cold and the ignition key at
STOP. After washing, make sure that the
various protections (e.g. rubber caps and
various covers) have not been damaged or
removed.

INTERIOR FITTINGS
Periodically check that water is not trapped
under the mats (due to water dripping off
shoes, umbrellas, etc.) which could cause
oxidisation on the sheet metal.
WARNING
Never use inflammable
products like fuel oil ether
or rectified petrol for cleaning inside the car. The electrostatic
charges generated when rubbing to
clean may cause fire.
CLEANING SEATS AND FABRIC
AND VELVET PARTS
– Use a soft brush or a vacuum cleaner to
remove dust. Velvet is cleaned better if the
brush is moistened.
– Rub the seat with a sponge moistened
with a solution of water and neutral detergent.
CLEANING LEATHER SEATS
– Remove dried on dirt with a lightly
moistened chamois leather or cloth without pressing too hard.
– Remove liquid and grease stains with
a dry absorbent cloth without rubbing. Then
wipe with a soft cloth or chamois leather
with water and neutral soap. If the stain persists, use specific products, carefully following the instructions for use.
IMPORTANT Never use spirit or alcoholbased products, even at low concentrations.

The car upholstery can resist wear resulting from
the normal use of the car.
However, it is necessary to avoid
excessive and/or prolonged friction with clothing accessories such
as metal buckles, studs, velcro and
similar material, as this friction,
acting locally and with a high pressure over the knitted fabric, may
cause some threads to break and
thus damage the seat cover/lining.
Pagina 257
INTERIOR PLASTIC PARTS
Use appropriate products designed to preserve the appearance of components.
IMPORTANT Never use spirit or petroleum to clean the instrument cluster.
WARNING
Do not keep aerosol cans in
the car. They might explode. Aerosol cans must never be
exposed to a temperature above
50°C. The temperature inside the
car exposed to the sun may go well
beyond that figure.
STEERING WHEEL/GEARBOX
LEVER KNOB COVERED WITH
TRUE LEATHER
These components must be cleaned only
with water and neutral soap. Never use spirit or alcohol-based products.
Before using specific products for cleaning interior fittings, read the instructions on
the label carefully to make sure that the
product does not contain spirit and/or alcohol-based substances.
VEHICLE MAINTENANCE
234-257_Alfa147 Q2 GB
If, when cleaning the windscreen with specific products for glass, some drops fall on
the leather of the steering wheel/gerabox
lever knob, it is necessary to remove them
immediately and then to wash the involved
area with water and neutral soap.
IMPORTANT It is advisable, in the event
of steering wheel locking device, to operate
with great care to avoid damaging the covering leather.

FRONT WHEEL DRIVE WITH SELF-LOCKING DIFFERENTIAL
(optional for versions/markets where applicable)
Alfa Q2 characteristics are such as to guarantee top performance with whatever road condition. Alfa Q2 features front wheel drive with front mechanical
self-locking differential LSD (Limited Slip Differential). Torque level between right and left wheel is modulated according to the TORSEN B front differential
grip. Mechanical modulation is continuous and gradual thus optimizing drive under whatever running condition and guaranteeing smooth drive, high stability
and keeping top comfort conditions. This type of differential enables to exploit the tyre-road grip at the best even under poor grip conditions: the driver is however charged with observing common safety rules since road safety is always the driver's responsibility.

(*) With special equipment (sunroof, trailer towing device, etc.) the loadless weight increases, thereby reducing the payload, with regard to the maximum
permissible loads.
IMPORTANT If only the luggage compartment is used for storing the goods, the maximum load in the compartment must not exceed 350 kg in the load
condition with just one person onboard.
(**)Loads not to be exceeded. It is the driver’s responsibility to place goods in the boot and/or on the loading surface in accordance with the maximum permissible loads.

For regular operation of Multijet versions fitted with DPF, use the genuine lubricant only. In the event of an emergency, lacking the genuine lubricant, top up just once with max.
0.5 l and go to Alfa Romeo Authorized Services as soon as possible.
In case not original SAE 5W-40 products are used, with the same viscosity degree with minimum performance ACEA C3 for gasoline engines and ACEA B4 for Diesel engines are
accepted; in this case, the best engine performance is not ensured.
Using low-quality products, not compliant with ACEA A3 and ACEA B4 properties and specifications could cause engine damages not covered by warranty.
For very cold temperatures, consult Alfa Romeo Authorized Services for the proper Selenia product to use.

FUEL CONSUMPTION
The fuel consumption figures given in the
table below are determined on the basis of
the homologation tests set down by specific
European directives.
The procedures below are followed for
measuring consumption:
– urban cycle: cold starting followed by
driving that simulates urban use of the car;
– extraurban cycle: frequent accelerating in all gears, simulating extraurban use
of the car; the speed varies between 0 and
120 km/h;
Pagina 273
CO2 EMISSIONS
IMPORTANT The type of route,
traffic situations, weather conditions, driving style, general conditions of the car, trim level/equipment/accessories, load, presence
of a roof rack, use of the climate
control system, other situations
that affect air drag may lead to different fuel consumption levels than
those measured (see “Reducing
running costs and environment pollution” in the chapter “Correct use
of the car”).
The CO2 emission levels shown in the following tables are measured on a mixed
cycle.
CO2 emissions according to directive
2004/3/CE (g/km)
– combined consumption: is calculated weighing about 37% of urban cycle
consumtpion and about 63% of extraurban
consumption.

PROVISIONS FOR THE PROCESSING OF A VEHICLE
AT THE END OF ITS LIFE-CYCLE
For years now Alfa Romeo has been developing its global commitment towards the safeguarding and protection of the Environment through
the continuous improvement of its production processes and the making of increasingly more “eco friendly” products. With a view to guaranteeing the best possible service to clients in full observance of environmental standards and in response to the obligations imposed by European Directive 2000/53/EC on end-of-life vehicles, Alfa Romeo offers its clients the possibility to hand in their vehicle* at the end of its life
span without additional costs.
The European Directive, in fact, provides for the take-back of the vehicle without the last holder or owner of the same incurring expenses due
to the fact that the market value of the vehicle is zero or negative. In particular, in almost all of the countries of the
European Union, up until 1st January 2007, take-back of the vehicle free of charge only applies to vehicles registered from 1 July 2002 on,
