creaking

  1. Creaking 156

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Any ideas what is causing my 156 V6 to creak at slow speed or off power. Recently changed, lower wishbones, front anti-rollbar, inner track rod ends. Seems to come from under floor, cracked inner cill?
  2. 147 Driver's Seat Rocking & Creaking

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've had a 147 Ducati for about 3 months and the driver's seat is driving me mad. If you shift your weight on it, the whole seat will rock backwards and to the left by about 10/15mm, as if something has failed on that back corner. The base also squeaks and creaks all the time as it's going over...
  3. Creaking when turning steering wheels since installing Quaife diff

    Tuning & Upgrades
    My 3.0 156 is making a creaking sound when I turn the steering wheel ever since the diff was installed. It does it when the car is stationary and at low speeds so I'm guessing the diff itself isn't actually the cause, but it occurred at the same time that the diff (and 3.0 engine for that...
  4. Gt driver window creaking

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My drivers window creaks on the rubber when it travels in either direction. The door also catches on the sill although I'm unsure if the two are related. How can I eliminate this?
  5. Front creaking

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi it has turned out that my creaking noise is a worn lower ball joint. I've decided to replace both top and bottom wishbones on both sides...just wondering if anyone knows the best place to buy. Best price so far is £325 for the lot. My car is a 2006 159 2.4. Maybe someone has bits never...
  6. GT JTD - creaking clutch pedal

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I know this topic has been covered before but wonder if anyone can shed some light on this recurring issue. A month or so back the clutch pedal on my Clover 170 JTD began to creak annoyingly intermittently and then continually when depressed and on return. The usual solution is to...
  7. Creaking Front suspension??!!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 159 Ti SW has developed a noticeable creak from the front passenger side suspension, worse when driving at lower speeds. Steering isn't slack and no knocking. The upper arms were replaced back in June/July time, lowers were given the Autolusso Powerflex treatment a few weeks later and full...
  8. GT V6 body creaking

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys Maybe this is negligible to some people but for me, it drives me crazy. She started to creak whenever I pull away as the whole body is pulled forward and then creaks again when I brake as the body is forced to stop, is this just normal old age or a sign of something being loose or not...
  9. Creaking rear seat

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I think this is an easy cure but it has eluded me. The rear passenger seat is tight against the side of the car so when I drive there is an annoying creak as the plastic side of the seat rubs against the plastic side of the car - it is so annoying Over time it appears that this rubbing has...
  10. Creaking steering & hollow rattle

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Over the last couple of days everytime I turn the steering it's developed a hidious creaking sound, almost like a door from a horror movie. Also, when driving over bumps or sleeping policemen there's a separate rattle that sounds hollow. I've tried pushing the front wing down to check the...
  11. Creaking Brake Pedal

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi I am new to the forum so apologies if this is a known issue. We have a 2013 Guilietta 1.4 sportiva. After a period of hard use the brake pedal creaks alarmingly with the noise disappearing when left overnight. I assume this to be coming from the linkage mechanism somewhere as the brakes...
  12. Creaking steering 147

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a creaking noise when turning steering wheel, seems to be coming from under bonnet, it sounds as if something needs lubricating? Any ideas as to what this is and how I go about fixing it? Regards
  13. Creaking sound whilst pulling away!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all as title suggests whilst pulling away and just before I come to a stop I get a creaking sound from the passenger side of the car, I origionally thought it was coming from the back now I suspect that it is the front. I have replaced lower wishbones, upper wishbones, drop links, shocks and...
  14. Creaking top mount

    Alfa Giulietta
    Not very happy at the moment. Just a couple of days after having the bilsteins fitted to the front, the top mount on the passenger side has started creaking from time to time. I take it I need to replace part of the top mount? Having looked at the EPER, it is referred to simplay as PAD. I am...
  15. Creaking from steering rack.

    Alfa Giulietta
    Last one from me tonigt I promise ;) In my neverending mission to sort out my suspension (new strut top bearings still waiting to be fitted) I found my front end ride was particularly poor this week. It would be accurate to describe it as it feels as if the front drivers side wheel has...
  16. My car is starting to sound like a creaking old man

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all. I have a 2010 159 tbi with 40K on the clock. Over the past few months I've noticed that the front end has started to creak / groan with a slight knock thrown in for good measure. Where's the best place to start to look? Graham
  17. Creaking noises

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The last few weeks my 147 has been become less and less a pleasure to drive, I've developed a creaking noise up front. It seems to do it most of the time when there are small uneven surfaces on the road more so than over ramps. It must be suspension or bushes or something, when I push down on...
  18. Creaking Clutch Pedal - GT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Has anyone experienced this annoying creaking sound at the top of the clutch movement? It's quite smooth up and down but makes a creaking sound just as you touch the pedal right at the top. View My Video
  19. Rear creaking noise...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The last week my 159 has developed a rear creaking noise. Checked the bumper. It seems maybe the suspension? Have a look at this photo. Can anyone help??
  20. A few... concerns

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi there, bought my Brera a few weeks back, not sure if you saw my previous thread but diesel was pouring from the engine a few hours after I bought it... Sent back to the dealer and all is well now.. Anyway, there are a few noises that are concerning me a little as I don't really know anything...
