Re: Dash Rattle!
I have a new 2005 156 Ti that has the most annoying buzzing noise when you accelerate up through the gears. Once on the cruise or coming down the gears there is no buzzing noise. I have tried sticking my hand under the dash and checking for any loose wires, but no luck. I have used a stethoscope trying to pinpoint the buzz, also no luck. It seems to come on above 3000 rpm, and sometimes tappers off above 5500 rpm. I also noticed that going up the gears and turning into a right hander, seems to make the buzz a little less apparent.
My Alfa dealer said that they can try and pull the dash apart to see if they can locate the buzz it since the car is only a few months old, but they cannot guarantee me that new rattles and squeaks won't eventuate.
I am worried that I might be opening a Pandora's box, and I so love my new Alfa that I would be very disappointed if I ended up with a whole new set of rattle to deal with.
Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.
