    I've undone the rear brake Calliper and Carrier section and am not sure if when re-installing them, if I need to do the bolts up to a certain torque setting or just firm hand tight? Ta!
  2. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I have a 2011 159 2.0L JTDM 170bhp. Recently the hill assist brake came on twice while driving. Shortly after the second time it came on the brake pedal became spongy and then the clutch pedal became spongy and then stopped working. No leaks anywhere, the fluid from the reservoir isn't going to...
  3. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, Feeling pretty gutted, noticed a funny smell from the driver’s side rear this morning but had to get into work. This evening I got back and the brakes were smoking. They are seemingly sticking on especially when I’m in a low gear or manoeuvring between reverse and first. Is the calliper...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello everyone, I have picked up a pair of GTA/Q4 330 mm Brembo calipers to upgrade my 156 2.5 V6. Calipers had very seized and corroded bleeders and 2 out of 4 pulled half of their threads with it. Aluminium... :sneaky: I am kind of in a situation here as we are speaking about brakes, safety...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all, my 156 V6 Sportwagon has developed a strange fault in the last few days. The brakes will randomly come on and stick on. All 4 brakes heat up as the car grinds to a halt. When this happens the brake pedal is solid and cannot be pushed down. If left for half an hour or so the system...
  6. Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, Got my front brake pads changed a few months ago after the 'check brake pad' warning light had come on. The warning light never came off again. All 4 pads have plenty of life left in them, but the warning light still remains on. The warning light is near always on however, but is on...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Morning all. I have bled all the calipers and the master cylinder in my 2005 1.9 GT and I still have a brake pedal that starts firm but slowly sinks to the floor. In total, I have done this at least 10 times and the fluid in the system is completely flushed. I want to try bleeding from the ABS...
  8. Alfa MiTo
    I recently bought a 2014 sprint 0.9L MiTo and have noticed when I don’t drive the car for a week (this has also coincided with cold weather between -4 and 4 degrees) the car takes a while to set off. I take the handbrake off and find the biting point but the car doesn’t set off for a good few...
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I am finding the brakes on the twinnie lacking in bite and stopping power, and was looking at using Mito 305mm Brembo calipers with the associated standard Mito bracket. Would I be correct in thinking this is a straight, bolt on swap, using a V6 GTV 305mm 28mm disc? Do the early 305mm Giulietta...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, so today i went to a friend's garage to replace my rear brake pads on my '99 alfa 156. We did the job pretty efortlessly but after putting everything together i got in my car to get home. It was only after i got to 15 km/h that i realised I had no brakes, the brake pedal went straight to...
  11. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi everyone, I have now completed three ascents each one was 2 km. There was no massive use of brakes, at the end of the last ascent after cooling the front brakes they started to creak and there was a relatively strong smell to use. Plates and pads were replaced 2000 km ago, Brembo's company...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Today I changed the air filter for my 156 V6 and all seemed well until I took it for a drive and found that the brake pedal is stuck in position that it goes to when in park, while driving. The brakes still work although not very well at all and the pedal itself does not have much movement. The...
  13. Alfa Giulietta
    hi Guys, First timer on here! loving my Giullietta. I have a 2010 1.8 cloverleaf model (Manual Tans, right hand drive UK)) that I've owned for just over a year, it's absolute dream to drive (just have to shut my eyes when i look at the fuel consumption!). The only problem I'm struggling with...
  14. Alfa Giulietta
    Hello, Recently got a set of EBC pads and discs fitted on the front and I can hear a ticking sound (that is speed dependent) from the front of the car (I think?) which then goes away when I apply the brakes. Doesn't matter if I press hard or light it stops. (had the brakes on for around...
  15. Alfa 164 & 166
    has anyone fitted the slightly bigger brembos from the 159?
  16. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Hi guys, Not been on here for quite a while.My dilemma is this.A few weeks back my '87 33 T.i Veloce developed a sinking brake pedal.No loss of fluid at all but having experienced this on ther cars before recognised that the seals in the master cylinder had failed and it was using the emergency...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, does anyone know the difference between the Lucas rear calipers for the standard 147 with 276mm discs and the ones fitted to a gta? they have different part numbers but they use the same pads and discs, I really need a caliper but I can't find the ones that are allegedly specifically...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    A few days back I started my car up found brakes sinked and no fluid in reservoir, no leaks were found the brake fluid was sucked into the air intake through the vacuum hose, after refilling and bleeding, the brakes stick after using a few times . All 4 wheels locked up. Master cylinder was...
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I've been soaking a bolt with WD40 on one of my rear calipers all weekend. The [email protected]@£y bolt just won't shift. Part of the problem is that you can't get a socket or a ring spanner over the head because of a rear suspension arm ?. It's a 15mm head (or supposed to be) but rust may have reduced...
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    This post relates to the front calipers, and erratic excessive pedal travel. But first, rather than rehashing it in this thread, a bit of back story (related mostly to the rear brakes) can be found in this thread...
