<strong>Hi all, my t spark has started to rattle and creak, i have read many threads as to what the problem might be , but what i want to know is if i ignore it will it get worse or damage anything?</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Do you mean from the interior? Those noises are not harmful, many owners accept them as an "Alfa character". Others (like me) didnt accept them, and fixed them wink Some rattles need personal work to fix them, some others a visit to the dealer. Most of them are curable though. My 147 had major creaks, but I didnt let my baby like that, I took care of her and now she is solid as Zerman - Fingers crossed!! http://www.alfaowner.com/forum/ubb/icons/icon02.gif
There are a few possibilities that cause rattles in the car. Do you know where the noise is coming from? My car's (year 1999) been ratteling since 10,000km, and it's gotten slightly worse now with 36,000km. The noise is coming from inside the rear doors, mostly.
Strange enough, our Sportwagon (year 2001) doesn't rattle. It has covered 23,000km.
