  1. 159 TBI - Help Identifying Creak

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Evening all, I've noticed that my 159 has a very slight creak, which seems to be coming from the nearside rear area. I suspect it's something to do with the rear suspension but wondered whether anyone could maybe point me in the right direction? It's a 2009 1750 TBi with 76k on the clock. The...
  2. The wipers creak Alfa GT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Alfa GT Wipers is creaking no matter of the weather cold or warm, wet or dry. Tried Bosch different models, valeo, etc etc. Same thing. On the first day it started to creak (from bottom deadzone of the working cycle for a one second, and every cycle. On the middle it is quiet and on top as well)...
  3. Creak over speed ramps or low speed bumps

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, Our 2016 Giulietta JTDm2 makes an annoying creak when going over speed ramps or low speed bumps. If we're going above 30mph it doesn't seem to happen but any speed under that and you can hear it if the radio is off. I think that it is coming from the rear of the car as it tends to creak...
  4. Front suspension creak - not the upper wishbone?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, My other half's 147 has a creak from the front suspension - when the car is parked if you push up and down above the front passenger side wheel it creaks quite badly when you take pressure off. The drivers side is fine. I've replaced the upper front wishbone as this appears the be the...
  5. Suspension creak

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a suspension creak from the n/s front lower corner when hitting bumps and speed humps etc. Anyone point me in the right direction?
  6. Dash creak & steering wheel rattle

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys, Just a few observations recently that I would like a bit of advice on. Whenever I use the windscreen heaters during a cold snap or to clear condensation on the windscreen so for example going from a cold dash to hot / warm dash I always get pops and crack noises coming from the front...
  7. Squeak / Creak on ignition? Bushes?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've got a Brera 2.0 JTDM - when starting cold there's what I can only describe as a high-pitched creak from somewhere in the lower regions that lasts about a second - it also happens when driving over (*******) speed bumps. It's not loud, but Alfa specialist said it could be the bushes?
  8. Can't locate suspension creak... Please Help!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey All, I've been cruising around in my new 156 for a while now and it's an absolute pleasure to drive. It's got no squeaking or knocking from the front of the car like my old one did, but as expected there is one minor issue. When I drive up a ramp or elevated surface like a drive-way...
  9. Creak Remains (after wishbone work)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    had quite a productive week, got the Fiat serviced and managed to do the 159 too! 159 has had the PCV pipe done from filler to separator along with an engine service, and FINALLY managed to get the time to do front springs and lower wishbones (that have been in the garage for longer than i care...
  10. Clutch pedal creak

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm unfortunate enough to have a really stiff clutch pedal which I've just learnt to deal with as most garages keep telling me I need a new clutch to resolve the problem, which I can't really afford. However, now my clutch pedal has started to creak only when you press it down at the start, so...
  11. Sunroof creaks on uneven roads

    Alfa Giulietta
    got my Giulietta now almost 1 year. Now i have the problem that my sunroof on uneven roads is ticking like a metal plate that is ticking against another metal plate i dont know what exactly only in closed position. If I press from the inside of the glass towards outside the ticking on uneven...
  12. Suspension creak

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Good evening, all! The front near side suspension on my 2008 159 1.9 diesel (70,000 miles) has started to creak. My local independent has identified the ball joint as the source of the problem but has been unable to persuade silicone lubricant to penetrate and is indicating that the lower...
  13. Squeak squeak creak!!! Goes my front suspension...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Last few days, just noticed it over bumps/pot-holes... Pretty confident it'll be the upper wishbones as I think they're still the originals from the factory, but I'm gonna take it into AutoLusso Bornemouth in a few weeks time for some other work so hopefully they can confirm it! For the moment...
  14. Creak reduction

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'm in the process of doing a few winter jobs and over the next couple of evenings I will be replacing a heater control bulb and adjusting the window glass to fit better. I'll be removing interior trim to do these jobs and wondered if anyone had attempted to reduce the creaking of trim parts...
  15. Creak back 2 weeks after upper wishbone

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Had the upper suspension arm replaced on my 53 plate 156 JTS. All was fine until tonight the same noise has returned. Not nearly as bad as it was at its peak but certainly back again. Tonight is cold but surely it should not be back already. I just wondering if the part could be faulty...
  16. Squeak / Creak when going over speed bumps

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All I've had my Clover a week now and loving it she got a good 350 mile run out this weekend and performed well, especially when I got the take her on some country roads with just my little bro next to me. I've noticed going over speed bumps there is a squeak / creak from the front, I'm...
  17. Creak..

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi Guys.. When I turn off the motor and get out of my car.. There is a creaking sound coming from the left back wheel (driver side) for a few seconds.. Did you experienced such a thing.. What can I do for that..
  18. Lower wishbones replaced, creak found...thankfully.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hand an annoying creak from the front right for a week or two, I knew it wasn't the uppers as I only fitted them last year, well greased at the time and have greased again twice since. So I convinced myself it must be the lowers but it's really tough to isolate the noise. Anyhoo, leap of faith...
  19. Can you diagnose my GT front suspension creak? Video included!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there, Front RHS suspension has started creaking when making slow left hand turns. Only does it after the car's warmed up. Maybe it does it at higher speed but I can't hear it. I'm guessing a worn upper wishbone bush? The LHS was replaced recently so I guess the other one is probably on its...
