    John, aka Cribbj, suggested we should copy the thread he set up in the 456/550/575 forum, so I'm going to plagiarize the work he has already done. :)

    The rules are simple - please post only about part cross references, OEM part numbers, sources, etc. Do not post questions unrelated to parts. Limit the posts to include a description of the part, the Ferrari part number, and the equivalent OEM or other car manufacturer part number. If photos are available of the Ferrari part and the equivalent replacement those are welcome also. This "format" makes it easy to use the FChat Search function for the Ferrari P/N's and/or Descriptions if the P/N is unknown.

    I'll start with this info recently provided by TheCook.

    Wiper motor
    Denso 159200
    either a 159200-7630 or 159200-8000 will work for the 612 (same one as used on the 458)

    If you have a broken window switch, my passenger side broke, this do it yourself repair really works. It was posted by a former member here. His post -

    Here are some pics of the switch repair.

    The first picture shows my first attempt using JB Weld plastic weld. It failed as it just plain isn't strong enough to rebuild those tabs.

    The 2nd and 3rd picture show the preferred and working solution. Simply insert your toggles into the switch base using just the one remaining side knub. Then carefully apply some black RTV to both sides. Carefully press a little RTV against both the toggle and the plate and let a little go underneath and between the two. The trick here is not to put too much so as to make the switch toggling resistance too high. The good news is that you can just take a pic or a razor blade and adjust how much you keep on, even after the RTV has cured. And if you extend it up along the sides too far, simply remove some after.

    I don't expect to ever have switch problems again. And if these get bumped, they will still stay in place my virtue of the RTV''s compliance and adhesion properties.

    I bought this fox reader initially to reset the light service for my wife Maserati Levante..
    Then I purchased another download for Ferrari

    I'm in the process to zero out the maintenance on my newly acquired 599. One item is to change the coolant. Pretty straightforward. Remove the two coolant hoses from the water pump to drain. To fill, the workshop manual shows to remove the bleeder hose from the top of the radiator. Why? The bleeder hose runs directly to the header tank, so should bleed the radiator just fine during filling. That hose has one of those single use clamps on it. I don't think it has ever been off.

    Changed the coolant. For anyone who is interested, there is no need to take off the bleed hose from the radiator. Just leave some space for the air to escape when you place the funnel in the header tank to refill. Once you have the front undercover off (29 screws), changing the oil and the coolant is straightforward. With a Quicklift you'll have to lower the car again to get the undercover out. Kind of a two-step process.

    While you don't have to remove the coolant bleed hose, the fact that the one time use clamp is on there means it's original and probably on its way out. It's either cracking or swelling up inside. It would benefit you to actually change that hose, and use a regular hose clamp on it.

    Unfortunately it is in Dutch, but I made a list with all the Bosch parts in a 612. Including the Bosch part numbers.

    Thanks to RegW for this info -

    612 Ash Tray

    Jan 10,2020
    The plastic rim broke - any idea if there's a replacement from another car that's more readily available?


    Jan 26, 2020
    Eureka! After doing a Google image search on "Alfa Romeo 2004 lighter ashtray", I found the one from the Brera particularly similar. I ordered one and it fits perfectly!

    From Makuono -

    Finally I managed to repair my 612's broken F1 lever, using Hill Eng part. This part is made of billet Alu, instead of cast (correct me if I'm wrong) original part - see pictures.

    As others said before, it is an easy process:
    1- turn car bat killer switch off
    2- remove 4x bolts holding the module to the console
    3- once module is out, turn it upside down and remove brown plastic cover (caution)
    4- remove 1x center bolt that tights the electronic board and lever mechanism together
    5- remove 1x bolt that holds the broken piece to the lever chrome plastic cover - this is a very small bolt - Torx T6. It was a headache to remove it.
    6- clean all gently
    7- reverse steps and enjoy your "new" F1 module - remember that now you need to pull up and push back if you want to reverse the car! :)
