  1. Steering noise on 159 1.9 jtdm_ SOLVED

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Front left wheel bearing... I also decided to go back to red as many here says this would be the right thing. So i prefer spend 40 euro and in case sonething bad happened i will say "i done everything right, it was its time to fall apart". Plus im from greece and summers are incredibly hot. I...

    Hello everyone.... Just a reminder:I have a new reservoir and changed the fluid from red to green. I used the old reservoir without a filter for a few kms as it was needed the car to be moved before the new reservoir arrive.The fluid got a bit dirty without the filter. Now: there is no...

    I couldn't resist and took a ride for about half an hour inside and outside the city. There was no noise the steer was smooth like before. I will wait for the big ride before i decide that everything is fine and after i examine the rack too. I do worry about leaking problems though, i read about...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I had to move the car and i didnt want to move it with the old fluid inside it. I didnt have the reservoir till yesterday. I read some threads about using the old reservoirs with new flushed fluids without the filters for a short period of time till the new reservoir arrives. This happens to...

    The reservoir is finally here after 14 days of waiting... So i run to take out the old one. I started draining the old reservoir and.... The fluid was dark green - black green! Just a reminder here: i had to move the car so i flashed the old red fluid with the green gi/r. This took about 2 lt to...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The official one just said that it cannot order any because it is stopped to be manufactured. I have to go other way and find an original one that can be somewhere in the market. In this case i uave to know which one is the original one, does anyone know the right part number? How can i know if...
  10. Steering noise on 159 1.9 jtdm_ SOLVED

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My news... I flashed the old red fluid and replaced it with the green gi/r. But the new tank didnt arrive yet and i had to move the car. So i kept the old one without the filter. At first the steer was extremely light. After a few corners the noise came back, not that loud like before but it is...
  11. Steering noise on 159 1.9 jtdm_ SOLVED

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Thats more than clear and something that i can do alone i believe. Im waiting the new reservoir from uk... Here in Greece i could find only used. So when it will arrive im gonna try it. Thanks a lot for your help. As for the pump i was asking about the part number in vase this will not solve the...
  12. Steering noise on 159 1.9 jtdm_ SOLVED

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Is it the right one? Does anyone know? I have mistaken about the fluid. I took off the fluid from the box and it was brown... So i suppose it was the red one at first. I ordered a new reservoir and they sent me a wrong one, i think it was for the 2.2 jts model. So now i have 2 problems, one...

    After turned off the engine some amount of the liquid got out of the reservoir although it was closed. So i believ it will need some liquid to be added

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    All i read here and your advice says to me to insist on changing first the reservoir and the fluid. The fluid although has a good colour shouod be changed all of it, right?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    No brown colour. Its a light green one. I mostly posted this thread just because in my case it started in sudden and really loud. More about your opinion if this is something different. Tomorrow im going to the mechanic and i will ask him replace the reservoir and rhe fluid.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I think I cannot fit lower dimension from 245 on these rims... isn't it too much for 159 1.9 jtdm 180hp ?? I don't know why the previous owner decided do this

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    If I just change my tires to 4 seasons, i will keep the rims and the dimensions will be 245/40 r18. 245 isn't too big for handling in light snow and ice?
