clunk

  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 156 seems to be making a funny clunking noise. I have just finished fitting the new springs, rear suspension components and drivers side lower wishbone. When I turn the wheel back and forth it sort of clunks but it almost sounds like springing metal. All I can think of is that the springs...

    hi just on a short drive home and as i braked for a roundabout was a slight noise as if something moving in boot, but then straight after a loud clunk came from what seemed to be the rear drivers side. possible that both noises were unrelated and the first noise could indeed have been something...
  3. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Had the sud out over the weekend, started first time after 4 weeks, then after about 4 miles there is a clunking coming from the front, i suspect its drive shafts as its worse on lock. Whats strainge is it it does not make the noise when its cold, is this normal or do you think its something...

    Well got myself last week a GTV 2.0 and was ecstatic with it till this morning:( Just parking up outside my house when all of a sudden a CLUNKING noise came from the steering and oil/steering fluid poured all over my drive. I'm no mechanic so was wondering what you think has gone wrong and how...

    Just wanted to get some advice really. Car is a 2002 156 Selespeed. I own Alfadiag. The car currently is clunking when changing into 2nd gear up or down. I have done the Clutch Rod adjustment and it is sitting at 28.06mm. I have then bled the clutch and performed the EOL calibration all...

    I've got a repeating "clunk clunk clunk etc.." coming from the front that only happens when I engine-brake. Sounds like mayby CV joint. Im pretty sure it's speed rather than rev related. If i dip the clutch or touch the gas it dissappears. It will do it in a straight line or round corners. It's...

    I am getting a slight knock when using the low gears. Is this engine mount trouble or something more serious. Something definitely sounds a little loose.
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Any one out there with a clue ? i have been experiencing a clunk noise as i change gear between 2nd &3rd 4th&5 gear whilst driving. Initially alfa desira put the noise down to clutch master cylinder which was replaced under 3rd year warranty. this made no difference in noise. They say that this...

    Hi all, My 159 has started making a clunking noise which you can hear and 'feel' when selecting first gear. I can replicate this on demand and the car does it every time. If I brake and come to a stand still then put the car straight into first it doesn't happen. However, if I slow to a...

  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    For many months now I have had a persistent clunk which appears to come from the nearside front suspension. The noise is quite loud and is definitely related to uneven road surfaces and potholes (of which there are many around here). I've had the upper arms replaced on both sides twice now...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT

    I sometimes hear this Clunk sound after moving away in the morning. It sounds like its from the rear brake disks that have had the pads clamped down on the disks from the handbrake all night in the rain especially. And when you release the handbrake and move away theres the Clunk sound when it...

  20. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi, Very recently, the wipers on my car are striking something at the bottom of the windscreen when they return to the 'home' position - ie when they go back to the resting position when turned off. It makes a clunking sound which isn't horrendous but quite noticeable from inside the car. Has...
