  1. Wet carpets

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 159 passenger side carpets are soaking wet, I have cleared the drain outlets below the windscreen scuttle but water still coming in. Any ideas what to check next??? I know it's a bit drastic but what about drilling a couple of drain holes near the outer skin of the doors??
  2. Seats and floor carpets / mats

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Three more questions ? 1 Do 159 sportswagon rear seats fit the 159 saloon? 2 Do some 159's have better quality carpets than others and if so which model(s) have the best? 3 Are any nice quality floor mats available. Currently I have a old scruffy set that came with the car. I'm looking for...

  6. Sodden Carpets

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I had a bit of a puddle in the rear footwell last week, not only was the carpet floating but it was sinking too. Not amused. So today I've started the drying out process by stripping out the interior of the car. The carpets are now out and dripping dry very slowly. I'm not going to put them back...

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi all - I need your help pls. I need some carpets for my LHD 159 but simply can't find anyone in the UK who makes LHD mats. None of the UK car mat companies have the LHD patterns (except carmats2u.co.uk who I originally ordered from but were a disaster). I have also tried ordering from the...

  12. wet front carpets - rain leaking in from front somewhere?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Our 147 has leaked in for over a year now :-( In this time I have *******ised (now look here that was not a swear word!) the carpet and underlay in attempts to find the leak without success. I have checked most things suggested in the forum, but fail to find the where it is coming...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The past couple of nights we have had TORRENTIAL rain here in Lichfield. I have been worried about a good few things leaking (esp the shed and garage roof) but didn't give the 159 a thought until this morning when I got in to see puddles in the carpets!! :wow: The drivers footwell is...

  18. Are carpets technical !!??

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Not the usual type of enquiry but might provide an entertaining topic! Still going over my new (to me) 159. Lifted the aftermarket driver's carpet and found that it must have had a femail (maybe!) driver who was very partial to stilletos as under the clutch and brake just forward of the...
  19. Wet carpets and soundproofing

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just felt my carpets and they are damp-the sound proofing underneath them is soaked through, there are no visible leaks, anyone know what the problem is? Was thinking it could be bad condensation as the car gets very steamed up overnight, but that might be a sympton rather than the cause.
