  1. GT/147 A-pillar creak

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After a year of GT ownership I've become pretty good at fixing creaks and squeaks with patience, adhesive-backed felt (apparently this has an AR P/N!!) and silicon lube. One thing I ain't been able to crack is an intermittent creak from the A-pillar - sounds like its the pillar trim creaking...

  3. GT Creak

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    does anyone have any knowledge or advice or a couple of noises that have started occurring in my GT. When I shut the drivers door it sounds like something rattles inside it. This doesn't happen on the passenger and does not happen when the window is wound down. Where I sometimes work I am...
  4. Creak from window frame

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Well, over 13,000 miles into ownership and the car has developed a creak from the driver's door side window frame. It seems that the frame is moving in the door recess and creaking against the rubber seal. I have no idea why this should happen this late on unless the door has dropped a little...

  6. Creak during gearchange.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi. I've got a slightly annoying problem just developed with my 5 year-old 147 2.0 T-Spark. There is a creaking noise from the footwell just as the clutch is depressed changing from 1st to 2nd to 3rd, this only happens when it is thoroughly warmed up (after 5 miles or so) and is worse under hard...
  7. GT Boot Creak Finally Cured

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I know many other GT owners have had rattles, creaks and other noises from their rear hatch - my'04 GT JTD was no different. The squeak/rattle (sounded like plastic on glass) seemed to me to be coming from around the brake light area in the near side corner of the hatch close to the hinge. It...
  8. 3.0 V6 - Creak from rear? Bumpstops?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    hey recently took the Cup in for Service, all is running sweet! Except, over the past few weeks the rear has developed a creak (like when you have your handbrake on, on a hill - that kinda noise.) It only does it when moving v slow and on hills, garage say that the rear bumpstops have broke...
  9. Front seat creak

    Alfa GTA
    15,000 miles and all of a sudden, my front seats have started creaking!:cry: Seems to be coming from the area around the seat belt buckle, but I don't think it is related to the buckle. IT'S NOT THE LEATHER CREAKING as the dealers would like you to believe.:tut: It sounds like a plastic on...
  10. Creak when Pulling off and coming to halt???

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, I know there are loads of threads on creaking / squeaking suspension, but this I think is slighty different....... b4 I explain please note the drop links, ARB and steering rack have been replaced recently. Basically, when pulling off a creak sometimes comes from what sounds like the...
  11. Nasty constant creak - at 10mph, no bumps

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello people! this is a creaking - suspension related thread. I did my research on the topic (there is plenty about it) but I did not find anything similar to my case, thus the post. I thought I could hear an occasional creak (different from the usual creaks) from the begining of last week...
  12. Can new suspension wishbones creak?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Not sure if I still have a problem, or if all is okay if not noisy. Gor 4 new wishbones, although still hear some creaking over extreme bumps. I thought new bones should not creak? (No clanging loose sound, just creaking of rubber kind of noise). New droplinks and arb fitted last year, all...
  13. Is my MAF up the creak?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys, Wonder if you could shed some light? Have been reading all the threads on here re: erratic idling. Just wondered is there anything I can do to check that my MAF is muffed before i buy a new one? :p
  14. 156 V6 front suspension creak

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Just bought a 2001 156 V6 with 40000 miles on the clock and I'm loving it :-) A couple of problems though.... On the test drive I noticed a creak coming from the front right hand side. The dealer said this was the upper wishbone suspension bushes. These were replaced (new wishbones) on...
  15. Dashboard-A-pillar Creak

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Few weeks ago, I have posted my problem with a dashboard creak, that appeared, when accelerating and in tight corners. The pattern seemed to match the, much talked about, windscreen-dashboard creak. I tried all the proposed solutions (silicon, press down the console, e.t.c.). Nothing did the...
  16. 147 dashboard creak and other things

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Tell me people, What should I do about the constant creaking of my dashboard on the drivers side infront of the corner of the windscreen. When I pull on the windscreen demist vent, it stops but i don't fancy the alfa mechanics making more creaks while fixing it. Is it an easy fix? Anyone else...

    The gearlever on the Cloverleaf has started to make a rubbery creaking sound this last week. It only does it when the cars been running a while and at first only on 1st to 2nd changes. Now its doing it 1st to 2nd to 3rd. Any ideas you guys before it becomes 1st,2nd,3rd and 4th!
