Found diagnosis for annoying sound from dashboard!
Hi members, not sure if anyone has suffered with this but for ages I have had a really annoying buzzing sound from behind the dashboard in my 159 jtdm. It seemed to be connected with when I accelerate as it would come or go (depending on the day) when I put my foot on the accelerator. A garage that changed my steering rack thought it was linked to the PAS pump which also needed a change.
Anyway, I took it to Rusper Alfa Romeo for the pas pump to be changed after reading a recommendation on here, but I was extremely happy that Rob and Dave there diagnosed that annoying buzzing sound. It wasn't the pump as the previous garage though but the fuel line, the end of the line resonated with this buzzing sound as the fuel runs through it. A slight move of position sorted the sound out and now I can drive headache free!
Have to say that Rob and Dave at Rusper really impressed me with my first visit, needless to say I am willing to travel to them again from France for anything else I need, can't thank them enough!
