Abarth 500 / Re: Oil Level Check

Try shop 4 parts for the oil


In fact, you could get all the service parts from there and get somewhere local to do the work
Oh....I think I have figured it out....it's a PY24W that include a round base as standard. It's not a Fiat / Abarth part. It's a bulb type.

Well done :thumb:

Thanks for the quick reply mate, thought as much.

Actually registered December 2017 so not quite 4 years old yet. Just clocked 18,000 mls so obviously due a service.

Couldn't get Selenia without going to my local main dealer which is a 9-mile drive and obviously didn't want to risk driving it. But given I plan to get it serviced, it will obviously have an oil/filter change anyway. I'm on the Isle of Wight so not likely to do many miles!

Welcome to the forum Strada :wave:

No dry sump.

Use Selenia to top it up or best to change the oil and filter. :thumb:

As it's 4 years old, with no history, it's due a first cam belt change. :thumb:

Probably a silly question but i've acquired a 67 plate 595 with absolutely no service history. Consequently, i got it well below trade price.

Anyway I checked the oil over the weekend and was shocked to see only a spot on the bottom of the dipstick. Obviously not driven the car since and have struggled to get the right oil for it (10w-50). But before I top it up, a mate mentioned they may have a 'dry sump' meaning the oil should be checked with the engine running?

Anyone confirm this or not?
Hi all,

Newbie here.

I have bought a 2016 S3 Abarth 595 recently and I am attempting to change the old reflector type headlight to the newer S4 projector type (triangular shape) headlight (both are halogen).

The headlights I bought were from ebay and they were made by DEPO. And the manual said I have to use the original turn signal housing to fit in (attached photo). Unfortunately my old turn signal housing are just different from what the new ones need. (attached photo)

So my question is: Anyone knows where I can buy that housing separately or tell me the part number so that I can somehow order it. BTW, I'm living in Hong Kong and there is no Fiat/Abarth dealer for a while  :-[

Thank you very much!

Hi,  I am having almost exactly the same issue as yourself. I bought my new 595 Turismo on 16th feb. I noticed a rattling noise particularly on cold mornings. Noise went went I pressed the clutch. I booked the car into Motorvogue. They initially thought it was the ‘ clutch plate bearing’ on inspection they thought it was the gearbox which they wanted to replace but ‘Technical in Italy’ would not allow it ( too costly) 3/4th synchronisers were changed. I was told the car was fixed. Went to collect it.. My car was still making the same noise so they kept my car. The dealer still thinks it is the gearbox.
Currently waiting for ‘another’ synchroniser to be delivered from Italy. Which is not in stock.  The dealer has had my car pretty much for 3 weeks already and I am no further forward.  I adore my care but I am so bitterly disappointed
