My turning signal stalk works like Knights too - Soft press get 3 blinks, soft press & hold down get more blinks until release, and full press. Mine car is 19’ SQ.
Another thing I found about Start/Stop (forgive me if already posted elsewhere), I keep forgetting to push the button to turn it off after starting the car. At first, I have to let the brake goes just a bit to start engine again then press the button. Now, I can press the button right away w/o letting the break goes first, the engine will start while I still having the break pedal pressed...eliminating that little hop every time!

Not sure if this adds much, but I've got an earlier '18 Stelvio (no Android/Apple car play) and when I tap the turn signal, you get 3 flashes. If I hold it lightly, it flashes till I let it go. Hard press of course keeps it going unless I turn or cancel it. I guess this is how I'd expect it to work.

Inside manual liftgate release

If you are caught in the luggage compartment, (Let's hope not. Hard to imagine how that could happen) there is a secret liftgate release pull behind the interior plastic wall of the trunk.
On the driver's side there is a small rectangular access panel integrated into the liftgate interior wall. Pry it open with a blade, etc, and you'll see a wire with a loop. Pull that and the liftgate releases.
This might also come in handy if the battery is dead and you want to get at the battery. This is interesting for me since I have a very tight garage and I wouldn't be able to access the hood so I would have to open a door with the key and climb into the trunk to get at the battery by releasing the liftgate.

If u don’t need seat memory #3, adjust your side rear view passenger mirror downward and save setting. When || parking, you won’t curb your nice 20 inch rims. Just press 3 and the mirror will go down. Afterwards just press memory 1 or 2 to put mirror back in normal position.
Genius. :eek

Ok, here’s one I found for the DIY crowd: in the infotainment system you can retract your brake pistons when you do a brake job! Put that C-clamp away . . . you won’t be needing it! So cool. I have yet to actually use this feature, but an Alfa employee showed it to me.

Yeah, be carefull with that one.... There are stories on the giulia forum of people getting stuck with an immovable car after trying that ;)

Agree. One of the features of my Audi Q5 that I miss was the passenger side mirror would do that automatically when put into reverse next to the curb. Problem solved!

Great tip! I also programmed mem#3 to tilt both sides of the mirrors. My 13'RAM truck has this auto tilt as a built-in feature as well. May be Alfa can put this in the next Infotainment/SW upgrade!

I feel pretty certain a refill is out there. As mine is on its second summer, it will get replaced before winter. Bet its the micro blade width. ~7mm

I checked out flipping over the cargo cover but that plastic doesn't seem exactly built to be used on that side. My Audi Q3 was specifically meant to so that and was in the manual as an all weather cover but I may not have seen it in the Alfa manual.

Flipped mine over a year ago...works great. I put a cover over it for walks or dog claws would probably shred it, but for grocery/home depot runs love it.

Don't believe it is all-weather, or meant to be, just non-slip and it doesn't hold dog hair like the carpet....

Well that does make sense! I am considering an all weather mat but my Stelvio came with that cargo management system installed and I am unsure which mat might work there.

Does anyone know if the rear wiper blade come out as an insert or does the whole arm need to be replaced? Mopar only carries the arm with the blade?
The blade on mine ripped and a piece was hanging. I was at the dealership and just about to buy a replacement, (comes arm with blade only as I was told by the parts specialist), when the service manager told me "you don't need to buy this, we will replace for free, it is covered under the warranty"!!!! I was like Whaaaat! He replaced both front and back at no cost. The front ones had just a minor streaks on the driver side, still they checked them and replaced both at no cost.

I hope this help save you some $$$.

Sorry if this is the wrong space for this, but does anyone have a favorite cargo box for the Stelvio? Something that hooks into the cargo hooks. I see a ton on amazon but hoping someone has a first-hand reco. TIA
