Hey .. sorry for multiple threads. I just adore my latest Alfa so much, and the Alfa paranoia is setting in already.
I just bought the car. 2003 plate 156 1.6 TS. The garage is bought it from had to do a bunch of work to get it through the MOT, including new bushes and ARB's, and some welding underneath. All good
This is my fourth 156, im not very merchanically minded but i have driven many a mile in a 156 so i know from a driver perpective.
My last Alfa, well, it was knackered really in the end. Needed new wishbones etc, and would make an awful squeeky creaky noise whenever you went over a bump, or any kind of uneven surface.
My new 156 ... drives beautifully. really lovely solid drive. First 50 miles i did in it, flawless, and i was loving the fact that it did not make a sound at all when hitting any bumps in the road etc ... then last night it has started making a little squeeky noise if i hit a bump in the road.
I actually curbed it!
Went to park and go slightly up a kerb, and did not take into account the 17 inch alloys, and the alloy scraped the curb, wasnt too mugh impact. since then, little squeeky noise
still drives real nice, but that sqeeky noise is really worrying me. It isnt really loud, just a real slight " eeky eeky " effect un uneven surfaces.
any advise ?
