  2. ALFA GT - Boot water leak HELP

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    There has has been so much heavy rain in last few months, but I am surprised that not much water has made it inside the boot. My last attempts to stop were using some silicone sealant around hinges & joints, no obvious place where water gets in though. But seems to have done something. The only...
  3. ALFA GT - Boot water leak HELP

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Will keep in touch, I'll see if my sealing changes anything. Using a watering can & hose pipe with my wife helping to see if any water appeared with hatch open & closed did not cause any water to get in, so yes really odd to find cause. My Alfa garage said was usually around around the rear...
  4. ALFA GT - Boot water leak HELP

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Interesting similar boot pic! I have currently removed the light fitting, I find now after some sealing of joints around hinges & top of hatch, still gets wet behind between the top of suspension & the boot box & a few drops of water appear same as your pic. Only happens with a really heavy...
  5. ALFA GT - Boot water leak HELP

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Any new thoughts? Sealing around boot hinges & welded seals at the top of the hatch offside has stopped most water leaks, but not the heavy downpours we have now & then. Water appears where the light fitting in boot is(now removed), car is parked on uphill slope so must come in back of this area.
  6. ALFA specialist servicing - Anyone recomended in the South East?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I am Leatherhead area in Surrey, I have travelled quite a distance to get good reasonable priced service/work on our Alfas over the years. Any recommendations within 30-40 miles worth checking out? Alfaworkshop have been my favorite for years now, but struggling to get there at the moment & is...
  7. ALFA GT - Cam belts

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Yes usually get done, just thinking over with service due & belts & rear exhaust to replace with rear suspension just replaced. Lot a bits to do..................................................
  8. ALFA GT - Cam belts

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Any one had a failure of belts within 4 or 5 years since the recommended change every 3 years? Just wondered as my car is low mileage last 3 years since belts changed & I have to date thought OK to last 4 or so years.
  9. Snapped rear shock

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Looks like I just had the same happen, loud 'bang' from rear & car scrapping noise, pulled over in some ones drive car could not move forward or in reverse. Wet cold day, 2 miles from home on busy road, called the AA said would be 2 hours but eventually came in an hour. Very helpful guy tried...
  10. Gt leaking boot

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Been checking out all around the hatch/boot with running hose but with hatch open no water leaked in. Funny when hatch was closed when running the hose at top of the hatch window a small amount of water came thru behind the light fitting in the boot but nothing obvious where from. I used touch...
  11. Gt leaking boot

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Did you ever find out the problem?
  12. ALFA GT - Boot water leak HELP

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Thanks for thoughts guys, so far not found anything and been dry for number of days now. Working up to the hassle of running water with hose or watering can over the boot and climbing in boot to see if leak can be seen. But looks like it might freeze at the moment.:rofl:
  13. ALFA GT - Boot water leak HELP

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Worth a check I'll look in the morning,thanks.
  14. ALFA GT - Boot water leak HELP

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Any offers people, so far I cannot trace where water is coming from other than the sky............ Looking in the boot, the inside of the storage box on the right hand side is wet only the half closer to the lights, feeling slightly wet on the roof of storage box. Nothing wet around the light...
  15. ALFA GT 2.0 JTS - New Tyre time

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just to say, I don't know why I did not go for 225/45/17 tyres before, much better on the road than 215s. Especially with all the pot holes and duff roads, ride & drive feels like new.
  16. ALFA GT 2.0 JTS - New Tyre time

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Yes definitely more available & not bad at £71 each, I tried online MYTYRES this time as local people did not manage to match. Must say very quick & good service ordered on a Thursday, came from Germany & delivered Monday. I did email them to confirm they had them in stock but did not expect...
  17. ALFA GT 2.0 JTS - New Tyre time

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Well I stretched out tyre replacement until July 2017. Went for Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3s, in 225/45/17 tyres. always had 215/45/17s before. So far feels great, any new rubber is going to feel better but sticks like glue to corners in dry & wet and much better with the duff road surfaces...
  18. GT 2.0 JTS failed MOT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I was amazed to find out that an Alfa Romeo original catalyst replacement is only £2620 a bargain & probably the same again to allow a main dealer to fit. With replacements available at £250-£300 I guess Alfa Romeo still have the one spare they made in stock. :biglaugh:
  19. Alfa GT 2.0 JTS engine pics wanted

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Can someone with same car/engine take a photo to compare with my attached one. Not sure about the fitment around the manifold area. Looks missing bolts or something. :paranoid:
  20. GT 2.0 JTS failed MOT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just to close off, CAT replaced , engine smell gone & passed MOT emissions. CAT was shot & rattled when taken off, so the obvious solution after all but costly.
