I posted a while back about the suspension and air con issues on my 2007 159 1.9jtdm.
All was resolved nicely, suspension sorted under warranty and the air con fixed with some help from an indie specialist.
So all was well in Alfa land. I even looked at a few other 159s and a GT recently, but decided to keep mine as all was well.....famous thoughts...
The aircon has been making that dry noise again. As if the system is low and it needs a re-charge. It has also started to make a very distinctive whirring/whining sound when the engine is on the over run, coming off the throttle. It comes from the compressor area, probably the pulley. The noise instantly goes away when I turn the compressor off, so I know it is to do with this system.
There are no apparent leaks around the engine bay, the new part that was put on is as dry as a bone.
Oddly the temp of the air is still cold, even with these new noises.
I'm worried that if it is the pulley, and it goes, it will take the power steering pump and alternator with it, as they all run off the aux pulley belt.
So, back to the indie air con bloke tonight, fingers crossed he can resolve it.
If not, time to say good bye!!!
