  2. Gt tailgate/roof creak

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, I thought I had fixed the creak from the rear of my 2005 GT 3.2 in the summer by following the Alfa fix of dropping the headlining and bolting together the panels above the tailgate opening (not easy...). However the creak has come back as the weather has got colder, and had got to the...
  3. New GT Owner – Have you owned one that doesn’t creak?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Afternoon All, I’ve now owned my 2007 Lusso JTD GT for a week, and I love it, however, I’m very good at appreciating, cleaning and driving cars – unfortunately not mechanically maintaining them! So, I’m hoping that someone with some Alfa experience can help me please… I have trawled the forums...
  4. Centre console creak

    Alfa GTA
    Has anyone had an issue with the centre console (between the seats, not in the dash) developing a terrible creak? Any tips on how to solve it? I checked and tightened the two rear screws on it, but the front two are hidden by the seat runners. Wondered whether I should douse the lot with...
  5. Upper wishbones...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Since purchasing my 147 I've had the dreaded squeaking from behind the dashboard, which an AO member informed me was potentially dry upper wishbones. So my question is: For a 147 which has FSH and seems to have had a good life, is it possible that the upper wishbones could need...
  6. Spider dash creak SOLVED - by tightening a bolt!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I was so happy to have finally found this, I just had to share! :) Ever since getting my V6 Spider, I've put up with an embarrassingly-loud creak from under the dash, which my TS Spider didn't have. Whenever I drove around a roundabout, a right-hand bend, into someone's drive, a service...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, I've had a fun afternoon fixing the dreaded tailgate creak on my 55 plate GT 3.2 V6. I was getting a loud creak or clack from above the nearside rear passenger seat when driving on bumpy roads. With the help of a mechanically minded friend we carried out the Alfa fix for pre 06 cars...
  8. creak creak knock

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, new Brera owner. Odd one. On slow pull away (ie in traffic jam) and braking whilst in traffic jam, there is a creak from the near side rear. Theory therefore is the noise is generated from a forward to back motion rather than side to side. Sprayed up any rubber i can see without taking...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Noticed today a creaking from the rear drivers side as well as a knock on bends. If I push down on that corner I hear the creaking, any ideas?

  14. Steering creak.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Today, whilst stuck at a light, I noticed that I was getting a loud creaking noise (like a noisy gate, but more deeper than squeal-ish) when turning my steering wheel. Even when it was just turned a little. Both directions. Sounded like noise was coming from a bit deeper under the steering wheel...
  15. Squeak / creak from engine bay.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, My clutch pedal was heavily creaking but I solved this by adding copper grease to every part of the pedal mechanism I could reach. While depressing the clutch pedal to work the grease in I noticed a more subtle squeak / creak coming from the engine bay. I got my Mrs to depress the...

  20. Which version of the GT Tailgate creak is this?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, The noise coming from my rear tailgate has gone from "very occasionally" to "sometimes" to "all the poxy time"! And I've had enough of it. Added to the creaking dash and the check-strap AGAIN :mad: I'm decided to get off my fat-butt and do something. So, as my car is a 2008 it's...
