    When I turn the heater on to 1,2,3 or 4 a couple of seconds later I hear a switching/clunking sound from around the glove box. The noise itself doesn't bother me but I'm worried that as the cold weather comes I'm gonna lose the heating. At the moment it works fine. Has anyone else had this...

    I had the chance to do a straw pole the other day whilst parked in Bradford for about ten minutes: What percentage do you think did not wear a seat belt? 30%!!!! And before you start, no not all af them were of foreign origin. It amazes me how many risk their life and I thought I would ask...

    Hi, Since buying my 159 several months ago i have notcied that at slower speeds changing gear there is a clunk noise at the end of the clutch travel as if there is some slack in the driveline, seems to disappear at higher speeds, try to drive round it by blending the clutch in slower at the top...

    Just driving home from town and something felt like it fell off on the High Street before turning into my flat car park. Thought nothing of it and asumed I just ran over some litter or something, but pulling into the car park - it's an almost full lock turning - the steering felt very loose and...

    Hi, I've got a 2.0TS 156 Selespeed (1999) which has just recently started making a slightly disconcerting clunk when changing from 1st to 2nd. All other gear changes are OK. Any advice would be much appreciated! Ta

    Well after the situation with the ARB droplinks the other day, try and work this one out... The 156 V6 is a great car, but I think someone has put the kiss of death on this particular one... I have had a constant knocking sound (heavy knock) coming from the front drivers side ever since I have...

    Morning all GTV TS (99) over the past few days has started clunking when I engage 3rd gear. It only does this once, maybe twice from first start of the day. Possibly because it has been a little colder over the past few days??? No problem with 3rd actually engaging but as I say, clunks on...

    More recently I'm experiencing a clunk when going over bumps (sounds like its from the right-rear) in the road. The car seams to handle OK however when it's been raining I get a horrible creaking sound when going over the same bumps. Is this likely to be bushes )hopefully cheep) or something...
