    Hi guys, The wife's Giulietta has developed a loud clonk on lock, it's only appeared recently and only when the car is cold. It's a manual not the TCT.

  3. Loud clonk noise when braking or steering at low speed; is it worth taking the car to

    Alfa Giulietta
    My Giulietta from 2010 with 90000miles has started making a strange noise a few months ago. It happens when I brake with a moderate/ strong force on the pedal and it seems to come from the driver side It also does it when I steer to the right full lock and proceed at low speed (usually when I...
  4. 147 JTDm 16v gear change clonk

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 2007 147 JTDm 16v has developed a noticeable clonk when changing gear. It happens whenever I release the clutch pedal and drive is taken up. This happens when changing up or down. There seems to be some driveline shunt when changing gear with the clunk. Both of these can be avoided if I let...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I am experiencing strange clonk when parking out (in reverse) of a sidewalk in front of my house, and it is always present. I did not manage to hear it on other occasions. It sounds like a faulty steering joint or link, but everything is checked three times by different specialists and they...

    As above free play + clonk from o/s steering rack. I fear the worst . . . .tie rod/track rod done last year so am told it could be a new rack.

  18. Clonk click every trip - brake problem

    Alfa 164 & 166
    For a long time I've had a niggle that I think is with the front brakes. I get a really loud clicking noise, sometimes a bit more of a clonk, from the front of the car. It's most noticeable when pulling away, and I get a series of 3 or 4 loud clicks in quick succession. With the windows down...

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    This is the 3rd wheel bearing on the drivers side RHS. The other 2 failed with pitting on the race. I have owned 4 33's and have replaced several and never had any problems until this one. I always replace the whole lot, inner and outer and take out the old race and press in the new one and pack...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've now spent a week in my new (to me) 2008 159 Ti. If anything, I like it more than I did when I collected it. One thing, however, has come to my attention since driving the car over more serious distances. There is a definite "clonk" / "clunk" noise from the car's transmission or...
