Alfa Romeo 147

bump and squeak

Technical problem concerning the steering and suspension.

My 1.6 147 turismo on standard wheels has just started making rubber/metalic graunching noises when going over bumps and whilst steering. it still corners and goes straight but the noise is a little disconcerting.

anyone had the same problem?

gonna jack the car up later and see if i can find the problem, but the wife has it at the mo.

Re: bump and squeak

I have the same problem with my 147. imo it's the steering system. I'll let my mechanics check on the steering and suspension as soon as possible. If they find something, I'll surely let you know. In the meantime, if anyone else got the same problem, it would be nice to share some info with us.?

Re: bump and squeak

If you are lucky it may just be the thin metal shield behind the brake discs - just bend them back a little.
