159 ti

159 ti

i'm new on here so thought i'd say hi.
I've had my 159 ti 2.2 jts about a month now. Stunning.
Had it in for dashboard creeking. Apparently common problem with seal on inside of windscreen. got it sorted with no probs. just thought i'd pass it on incase anyone has similar probs with new 159's.
This is my 3rd alfa and by far best looking yet, getting some very knowing glances and stares. Why buy a BMW M tech or Audi S line eh.

Re: 159 ti


Interested to hear your comments about the windscreen noise. I also have noise which sounds like a rattling vent in the dash but is clearly the windscreen. Press the windscreen and it creaks!!

What was the fix. Did they replace the seal, or lubricate it ??

Hi & welcome. Can't say I've had the problem with my Ti (luckily & thankfully). After how long did it happen??

Re: 159 ti

silicone spray under the rubber seal on the outside of the windscreen. It works!! Lift the seal carefully with a knife every 6 inches or so and empty the can! Have Windolene on standby though!
