  1. Clutch Creak

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Has anyone managed to get a permanent fix for the clutch creak? The dealer keeps spraying oil on mine which only lasts a few days before coming back again. It’s in its 3rd year warranty and they're not keen on replacing parts like the master cylinder. Any ideas?
  2. found and cured a "creak"!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I thought I'd share my joy in finally eliminating an annoying creak in my 96 twinny The noise came from the passenger side, was worse when the car was cold, and when going over bumps etc. I figured it was just a couple of pieces of plastic rubbing against each other, and had my gf press/hold...
  3. Dreaded tailgate creak - will Alfa pay?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    This has been getting worse on our 55 plate 69k mile 3.2GT. Looking that the AROC model register site I found this Car is obviously well out of warranty so do you reckon Alfa will rectify it FOC as it's obviously a well known fault:confused: Cheers,
  4. 147 suspension creak & knock

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, I have a loud creak and knocking coming from my offside front suspension. The noise is much worse on a morning and after 5 miles or so he noises die down a bit. I only here the knock/creak on rough ground and pot holes. I've already ruled out the drop links and ARB. I think the noise...
  5. Alfa GT Dashboard Creak (cracking noise)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I’ve got an unusual creak (cracking noise) coming from the dashboard of my GT. What happens is that every time the car goes over a bump there is a cracking noise coming from the dash. It sounds just like two plastic panels that are pressed against each other and make a cracking noise when they...
  6. 147 Front suspension creak

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I have recently replaced both upper front wishbones and drop links on my 147 2.0. The passenger side upper wishbone was shot and it was knocking like hell. After replacement there was a mouse orgy going on in both upper wishbones despite being greased with silicone grease, however after...
  7. 159 creaking/rattling noise problem!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've read several posts on this issue and this seems to be a typical problem of alfa 159. My issue has two sides: 1. Intermittent creaking/poping sound heard even at low speeds 2. High speed rattling while accelerating All previous posts address the cause to be "bad" windscreen installation or...
  8. 159 seat creak

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 3.2 159 has been faultless (except for arch liner causing a sound in B-pillar which was fixed with stick felt pads) but has recently developed a creak which can only be described as like an old mattress. I have narrowed the issue down to the plastic housing on the drivers seat. I have removed...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Ok guys, i'm trying to solve my next niggle. Almost every time i acelerate and then break (like when you are in a traffic jam) at very low speed (1st and 2nd gears) i have the most :rant: noise coming from the area surrounded in red in the foto. Also, if i press this area it makes that same...

  14. Fix for dash creak problem on GT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Many GT and 147 owner complain of a squeak/cracking noise that seems to come from the A pillar area on the off (drivers side) of the car. In some cases the issue gets worse when the heater is on the windscreen or in cold weather. I have resolved this issue as follows: 1. Carefully remove the...

  16. clutch creak fix

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    As far as I've seen there are quite a few people that are experiencing the clutch creak. It creaks only with the engine on and when changing gears, seems to be temperature related and it goes away when the car warms up. That excludes lubricating the clutch pedal and seems to be a problem with...
  17. Bl00dy squeak 'n creak!

    Alfa GTA
    Nearly a week in the new GTA now, and nothing major to report. However! I have the dreaded brake squeal when coming to a stop. Its not always there but more often than not. Its only as you just come to a stop and is bl00dy annoying (and embarrassing in front of all the boy racers at...
  18. Windscreen creak permanently fixed....and then

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Windscreen removed and refitted a few weeks back - a complete success, except they damaged the two rubber seals at the bottom corners of the windscreen. These were replaced in 15 minutes during a fly-by of Western Alfa last monday. ...and then..... A logging truck threw up a rock that cracked...
  19. Suspension Creak

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, As a complete novice and new Alfa Owner, I have to say I was always put off them because of general opinion on reliability. I have to say what have I missed!!! I also own an Audi A4 Cab and they are two completely different driving sensations......I prefer the Alfa!! I do have a...
  20. Strange Creak noise from 147

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Bought an Alfa 147 last Friday, and have noticed a few times a sort of creaking sound from possibly the back of the car. It happens just as I move off, especially after reversing before that (eg 3 point turn). I only happens then in about the foot after the car moves forward (sorry this is...
