Check the connectors below the waterbottle in the front.
They tend to corode.
The backview wil not be any better if it works Grin

I note the smiley, but actually if you have a properly working heated rear window system, they can clear the glass fine.  It's just many do not have really good working H.R.W. systems.  I've had my car from new and it worked and cleared the rear glass just fine.  All the connections must be in good order, the voltage at the screen must be full 13 volts plus with the engine running and all the lines across must be intact, with a good earth on the left.

However, one problem with the Murena is that the airflow stays 'attached' down the rear screen (unless you have a rear spoiler) so if the outside air is really cold, this slows the heating of the glass making it take longer before it has a reasonable affect.


The biggest problem is the water leaking from the backlights when it rains.
It soaks the carpet in the boot and because the exhaust warming it up you have lot of damp there that leads to a misty rearwindow.
Later in production they made a housing for the bachlights  that made the problem better but still not realy good.

I use Simca 1100 on the front.
The rear are specific Murena.
You can use adjustable Spax G695 on the rear and need to use the ols spring seats.


They work OK.


Lowered by the Spax.

Thanks lewisman.do you know how long it will be ?? i am prepared to wait and am in no hurry.my dash has a big crack in it which was there when i bought it to be fair and i also require the radio console if you have it.mine has been butchered beyond repair im afraid(different owner and radios etc ?? Also i would be prepared to help you remove it as obviously id prefer to collect as its not exactly postal size Smiley.

Happy to accept help in swapping out the dashboard but I suspect that I am a bit too far away. Google HS2 9LP for more details. :-) I have a couple of Alfa projects on the go that will take priority. Realistically it will be forwarded the end of the year. Where are you located?
