  1. Rattles & Creaks!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just when I was saying to someone the other day that I thought that my '05 facelift 156 was significantly better built than my '00 V6, it's now making all sorts of noises! I've spent the best part of two days tearing the car to bits trying to cure (a) a dashboard rattle on the passenger side...

    Hey Guys Just picked up my first ever Alfa and loving it so far :) Its a 2004 GT JTS 2.0 Petrol But there are a couple of questions ;) 1st annoyance is the various creaks and groans throughout the cabin? Cant really work out exactly where they are coming from, but seems to sounds more like...
  3. Suspension creaks... When HOT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I have this weird problem with my petrol 147. You know how they tend to be creaky at cold temps? Well, mine decided to do it while hot... I have done a bit over 1000 kms during the past few days at quite hot weather (around 36-38°C) and I noticed the following: I had a few legs on...
  4. 156 2.5 autobox "Creaks" when breaking from cold

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a '99 156 2.5 Auto From a cold start when I press the brake pedal I hear a loud "creaking" or squeaking noise. This only happens in Drive and not in Neutral. Therefore I can assume it has nothing to do with the brakes and must be associated with the transmission. The sounds goes away...
  5. NSF suspension creaks

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    There's an irritating 'creak' (the best I can describe it; it's not really a squeak) coming from the NSF of my 2.5 156. It only occurs when I go over large imperfection in the road. Is this possible dry bushes? I've also noticed the NSF of the car sits a bit lower (about 1cm) than OSF- possibly...
  6. Brera S Roof Panel creaks

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I need some help regarding my roof on a Brera S, I have a creaking noise coming from the roof panel above the drivers head. This happens when you go over a bump and also if you push with your hand up on the roof lining. I know with the Brera S you don't have the panoramic roof just a full...

  8. B-Pillar creaks and fail

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My B-Pillars are rattling like junkies outside boots! The bottom plastic bit has fell off the passenger side and the top bit is creaking on the drivers side. Anyone know how to fix these? I have already tried silicon spray - no joy!
  9. No noises, creaks, rattles or clunks on my GT, should I be worried!?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Had the upper arms replaced a few days ago, totally cured the groaning/creaking front suspension. My parcel shelf fix has continued to work a treat. The liberal spraying of liquid grease and silicon has eliminated all the interior squeaks and rattles. And the final noise was cured a few days ago...
  10. No radio to cover annoying creaks and groans

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Recently purchased a 2001 147 1.6 that was missing the factory fitted head unit. Tried to fit an aftermarket unit which works however at a price With the aftermarket unit fitted I lose petrol guage, temperature gauge, external temperature and a host of warning lights that fail to go out ie abs...
  11. Door and panel creaks

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    When I brought the 96 Spider I had seen that some creaking was to be expected when the vehicle flexes, that aspect I now understand but I still think that the drivers door panel goes beyond what is to be expected. I have tried stuffing peices of material in various locations as the sound is...
  12. Creaks and squeaks

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Yet another creaky thread! My 156 has a definite creak from the offside front wheel area whenever I start or stop moving. It's loud and I can 'feel' it through the car body. I don't get the creak once I'm moving. If the car is stationary and I turn the steering wheel in either direction, I can...
  13. Gear lever creaks

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've done a search but didn't come up with too much, so: My gear lever creaks when putting it into First (most), Second (little) and Reverse (least). Any way to fix it? I've read that it might be the plastic bushes or the gear plate - does anyone have pics? Or know how to replace it? The...

  16. Squeaks and creaks on my 156 SW

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Got a 2001 156 Sportwagon and its developing some odd noises . The first one is a squeak just as I'm coming to a halt - this seems to happen more often than not - could be brakes? The second one is a repetitive squeak on the passenger side when I'm going round a right hand bend - it seems to go...
  17. 159 1.9 Jtdm Lusso Windscreen rattle / creaks

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Everyone, I have had the windscreen creak fixed by my local dealer Meridien Milano (Bournemouth), hopefully permanently. Their initial cure back in January as recommended by Alfa Technical was to grease the areas around the seals and trims using a high spec PFPE grease. Unfortunately this...
  18. Clutch - pedal creaks & "broken" pedal

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The safety clip is the problem! I have noticed from this forum that numerous owners of 147, 156 and GT cars have experienced creaking clutch symptoms. A number of "fixes" have been suggested. Here is my solution to the problem. The creak is caused by the clutch master cylinder push rod sliding...

    Ok, so the odd rattle is to be expected - but I have a couple of noises that are really beginning to bug me... First one is the sunroof - it creaks like crazy when driving along - seems in the part where the slide cover goes back into... Any ideas how to get rid of this noise? Second major noise...
