  1. Corner windscreen trim

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Not your usual post. My N/S corner windscreen trim needed replacing and ordered that from Alfa Workshop and fitted it fine. The little D shaped cap that covers the screw that joins it to the centre trim is missing. ( Part number 156068743 ) I contacted Alfa who said they do not keep that part in...
  2. Squealing from off lower right corner of the bumper/wheel

    Alfa GTA
    Hi, the 147 GTA I've just got developed a squeal which gets louder and higher pitched as the revs increase, the sound also changes as you move the steering wheel, I took it in to my local Alfa Romeo dealer who changed the alternator belt and pulley (£322) but it's still there, any suggestions...

  5. Brake rebuild one corner at a time?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Any reason why I shouldn't? I can't have my car off the road for any more than just the weekend and a Monday morning. As I'm going to be replacing the discs, pads, lines and fittings, plus repainting the calipers, I doubt I'll get more than one corner done each weekend. I'm also planning to...

    I've got a loud click/clonk from the fron right wheel area when coming to a stop and sometimes going over sleeping policeman. What's this likely to be? Tie rod ends or wishbones. It's a 147 JTDm that's done 141000km (88125miles)

  12. There’s something in the corner of my eye. Passenger sun-visor question.

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, My question is more general that technical. When I look towards the passenger’s direction I see an eye saw on the passenger’s sun-visor. I respect that is there to advise safety information regarding airbags and baby/child car seats. BUT why so big :confused: Is there a legal requirement...

  14. Nurburgring - dodgy corner or drivers?

    General Motoring Discussion
    now here's a interesting thing: same corner at the Nurburgring, yet there seems to be no consistency as to why some cars fall off the track. OK, we can allow for some variables like car type/suspension set-up/quality of tyres/driving skills/weather... but if four cars enter the corner at the...

    Is this as common a problem as it appears to be? I'm on my second Spider and both car had or have this problem.

    Hello All, In the process of fixing an annoying "wind whistling noise at speed" :mad: on my GT, I cracked the clips on the plastic corner cover of the wing mirror, so while fitting back it does not fit tightly and falls away (Temporarily fixed by black insulation tape:eek:). Could someone let...

  20. GTA weighting + coilover corner ballancing

    Alfa GTA
    Yesterday I got an unexpected opportunity to lend corner weighting scales. Just for a short period and I had to drive quite a few miles to pick them up and return again, but it was worth it. Finally I know how much my GTA weights and I had a chance to play with weight distribution on my KW. I...
