  3. Giulia QV clunking noise to rear when cold!

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi all...... Got a rather worrying noise developing to the rear on my Giulia Quadrifoglio from cold. I have a loud 'clunking' noise / sound from the rear of the car on engaging Drive from Park position, but only from cold. Once the car has been driven and warmed up the noise no longer there...
  4. Front suspension clicking/clunking (With video)

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi. Just recently I noticed a weird clicking/clunking sound from the front suspension on my Giulietta. You can only hear it with the windows down and when turning quite a lot at low speed. Like when you are parking for example. I took a quick video of it. The sound can be heard at around 5...
  5. clunking or knocking sound while stopping and turning

    Alfa MiTo
    hello all! Lately, i have been hearing this sound while stopping (full stop) and turning at low speeds, kind of a knocking or clunking sound, once or twice, rarely multiple times. alfa shop that i usually go to says its probably something in the differential but they need to open it to see what...
  6. Clunking noise from rear nearside wheel

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    For the last few days I've noticed a clunking metallic noise sporadically. It seems to happen mostly when I go over a change of gradient on the road that makes the car suspension go all the way up and then down quickly, if you know what I mean. It also does it sometimes coming out of roundabouts...
  7. Front end clunking and groaning

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Alfa 159 noisy front knock. Not unusual as Alfa seem to use cheese as a major component in their bushing :lol: I am trying to work out whether it is ARB bushes or upper wishbone. I think the drop links look good. A couple of videos showing what I think is excessive lateral movement of the...
  8. Drivers side electric window clunking!!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all A problem has occurred with my 2003 GTV 916 2.0 TS. I had my air-con re-gassed yesterday (it's ice cold now!) at a local workshop. When I got home, got out and and closed the door I noticed a) that the auto window drop didn't happen and that there was a rattle type noise on closing...
  9. 147 rear clunking noise

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, just had the front wheel bearing done, so no noises there. But one thing that's been annoying me is the clunking noise from the rear. Mainly when you go over bumps. I have jacked it up at each corner, but can't feel any play anywhere. Even took the spare wheel out, thinking it was that, and...
  10. Suspension clunking, rubbery noise

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey, I bought a 147 Q2 last week for a reduced price as I knew the suspension needed sorting, but after spending a couple of days at Alfatechnico most of the knocking is gone, but there is still a rubbery knocking noise that you can feel through the steering wheel and pedals that my partner...
  11. Front suspension clunking noise

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi folks, My first time posting in the GT section, I normally live in the 164 corner ! I picked up a GT a couple of weeks ago, and its just started to make a clunking noise from the front nearside suspension. This usually happens at low speeds, or even when just turning the steering wheel when...

  13. Alfa 75 TS - strange clunking at speed

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    Hi all, Not sure if there's enough people on here with 75s to help but recently I had my exhaust replaced. The silencer was buzzing so it was replaced again with excellent condition second-hand parts. When driving around town and on rural roads, all seems fine. However, when travelling on dual...
  14. 156 - clunking noise when pulling away / stopping

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Right then peeps, got a problem with my 156. Clunking noises from front (I think - offside) on pulling away and when coming to a halt (many clunks when pulling away, just one when halting). Left/right steering makes no difference, been to a well known specialist who tried a driveshaft...
  15. Clunking noise from rear while engaging/disengaging clutch

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Greetings to the board, I've noticed that I get a clunking/knocking noise and a scuttle through the car whenever releasing or pressing the clutch pedal with a gear engaged. Its sounds and feels like it comes from the rear of the car, but might as well be middle for all I know - it's definately...
  16. Rear knocking / clunking sound

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    As the title, but only hear it when the car lurches forward through the gears (or backwards in reverse). It makes a single 'knock' each time, coming from the rear and I think it's the driver's side though I'm not sure. The more sloppy I am with the gears the noiser it is. If I reverse and hit...
  17. alfaGt hard to change gears clunking from clutch area?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, just took the car out after 10mins driving found i couldnt change gear, it would go in but with a lot of pressure! i had the clutch master and slave cylinders done about 20000 miles ago, the gear linkage has been stiff for a while(not self centreing) can put it in gear when engine...
  18. More fails. P1320 error and rear wheel clunking

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Really, I'm gonna put this car on fire and buy a bycicle :lol: The injector light turned on, car went into crappy slow mode. I connected the laptop and the P1320 error was there. Cam sync sensor error. Cleaned the connector on the engine, it worked for a while, then came again and kept forever...
  19. Clunking sound when pulling away

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So my 147 is being a noisy nuisance when warm. From dead cold there's no noise to be heard but from 1st gear to 2nd gear speeds I can sometimes get a load metally clunking/knocking vibration noise. Makes no difference if going in a straight line or round corners but it's more noticeable at...
  20. New upper wishbones - bad clunking?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Here's the story. Our 159 SW TI was making all sorts of noises from the front, so I poked around with a pry bar and diagnosed wear in the rear bush of the upper wishbone. I got two new ones, proper TRW parts, as well as a pair of drop links for good measure. I fitted them, and while the...
