Rattle / Vibration from rear shelf ?


One thing I like about the 159 is the superior build quality to the last gen alfa's, that said my 159 seems to have developed a vibration when going over uneven road surfaces - as yet i've been unable to locate the source but it seems to be coming from the rear shelf area behind the seats.

It's starting to annoy me now and spoiling the otherwise very quiet cabin experience.

Any ideas what it could be - have other 159 owners experienced anything similar ?

Funny you should mention this as mine's has the same creak issue but it's only come on over the last couple of weeks. I thought it may be related to the clonks I was getting that mangos dealt with but I've not had chance to check.

Had a problem similar to this but on a SW, do the seats tip forward on the saloon?

What was causing the problem was that the catch mechanism on the side of the seat, it has a plastic protection to stop metal to metal and therefore noise, it was missing on one side. I used some plastic insulating tape to prove the theory and effect a temp sure, that was 3 months ago and it is still OK!

Good luck I hope this is it, I do sympathise.
