  1. Brake Pedal/TCT Clunk

    Alfa Giulietta
    A month in & I've noticed a small 'clunk' from the centre console when I depress the brake pedal whilst in Park. It's clearly releasing the 'lock' that prevents you changing gear when not on the brake pedal but I can't say that I'd heard it until yesterday. I assume it's entirely normal & a...
  2. Mito clunk

    Alfa MiTo
    Wife's 11 reg 28000 miles Mito has developed a clunk at low speed or indeed no speed whilst sitting on the drive aNd rocking the steering wheel slightly. No vibration when travelling so doesn't seem to steering related. Any ideas ?
  3. Clunk from the rear?

    South Africa
    I was driving the GTV today and noticed that there was a noticeable clunk from the rear when I braked in slow traffic? I was talking on my bluetooth earpiece with the radio off when I first noticed the clunk under braking. What would be causing this?
  4. Gear changing Clunk Gone....

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all ever since I bought my 2.2 159 there has always been a cluck between gear changes which was quite annoying but managed to get use to it... So last week I was reversing out of a car park and heard a funny clicking sound for a few meters then it went and did not return, so I asked my...
  5. clunk from front 156 GTA suspension

    Alfa GTA
    hi guys, I've had my dad's GTA for a couple of weeks now...its a great car. We've had it at the mechanic and he could not solve the clunk noises from the front. We are suspecting the top shock mounts as he could partly move the rubber with little force by pressing a knife agianst it. But, the...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    hi, getting what can only be described as a 'clunk' when I fully depress the clutch pedal. There is a change in resistance as well at that point (as in the resistance is less). Any pointers? cheers

  8. 1.6 JTDM Gearbox clunk

    Alfa Giulietta
    To conclude. I continued to drive the car, monitoring the backlash. 4000 miles later it was getting worse so now 8 months outside of warranty I re-approached Alfa and the dealer to get the problem fixed. It was a long drawn out battle during which I took the car off the road, just in case it...
  9. "Clunk" from the gearlever

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Had a quick search, seems this is a new one. When I shift into 1st, I can hear and feel a hard metallic "clunk" and the lever comes to a soild, hard stop, with a little notchy feel just as it goes into 1st. Please tell me that this is not a sign of impending doom!! From memory this was not...

  11. 166 sportronic goes clunk

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I have a 2005 3.0ltr sportronic with a gearbox problem. It makes a physical and audible "clunk" when selecting D or R. When driving it is not changing gear. Selecting sport mode displays the gear as if it is all working but shifting manually changes the display but no change actually happens...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    recently had a new steering rack fitted. Good times But now, when i apply the brakes, i get a single knock/clunk (sounds like suspension/transmission - possibly nearside front)). I only get it once, until i reverse the car or if the car has been stopped for a period. Any ideas? (I would take...

    On my seemingly never ending quest to put my GTV perfect i find myself needing some advice, last week i put my Bella in to the local Ford garage to have a wheel bearing replaced, i asked them to have a wee look at the front as i noticed whenever i turned right there was a clunk twang sound from...
  15. Clunk

    Alfa Giulietta
    Well as the title suggests, I've acquired an odd clunk sound. It only occurs when I'm putting it on almost full lock and sounds like the noise the brakes make if they've stuck and then becomd free. It sounds as its coming from the centre of the car and I can't feel it through the steering wheel...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After three months of pretty much trouble free motoring I have developed a "clunk" coming from the front drivers side ...........Weird though it seems only to happen randomly on a "smooth" road ....Took the car to a very rough and bumpy stretch round the corner from home and drove about in...
  19. Clunk, knock, rattle all from the rear

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I love my 159 I really do but for the past few months I've been putting up with the most annoying noise from the rear of the car. I believe there are two problems here but being able to identify them is becoming a bit of a nightmare so I'm looking for some suggestions. I know for certain that...
