  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ever since I got my Selespeed GT more than five years ago it has always felt like a kangaroo on a trampoline was actuating the clutch, especially with a cold engine. Through the years I've learned to live with it and work around it, but it's always kept annoying me to some extent. So through...
  2. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I've never had single issue with my Q-TRONIC 2.4 JTDm 159 since I got it until last night. All of a sudden when driving my daughter home the battery warning indicator flashed up and remained on all the way home. I decided to give it the beans a few times to see if the alternator was lazy at...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I have been driving my 11 plate 2.0JTDM 170HP for 3 weeks now. I purchased it from Veloces and its a peach. She is absolutely beautiful, I have probably got one of the prettiest cars in my town (probably). However, the car is nowhere as fast from 0-20mph as my old 1.9L 150HP. The power delivery...

    The auto wipers on the GTA have been playing up - stopping part-way through the cycle in intermittent mode and juddering badly on all cycles - I have Bosch blades so it wasn't them. It seemed to be worse when the screen was only slightly wet. The screen is new and has "Rain-X" applied. I...
  5. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I am looking to treat the surface rust present on the rear suspension trailing arms on my 2006 Brera. I have read all the threads on this site and many on others and am now somewhat confused about which products are most suitable. I have dismissed Hammerite and Waxoyl and have settled on Bilt...

    heya guys and gals, one checking my latest threads and posts would see that i had an issue with unidentified knock from suspension,no garage could detect what was loose or knocking in suspension,everything was tight and solid as i changed upper and lower arms,track rods and rod ends and ARB...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The clutch creak may be well documented on here but when I looked there only seemed to be a handful of people who 100% cured it. After much searching I saw one post on here that mentioned turning the master cylinder piston round 180 degrees and refitting to cure the creak. I did this combined...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    had my little alfette a couple of weeks now, 156 1.9 jtd 16v by the way. and since I got her had some intermittent vibration sometimes while cruising sometimes when setting off, anyhoo, read loads of threads on here to see what the problem might be and really it could be quite a number of things...
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My son (filby boy) after a year of 2.2 Brera car hesitation problems and a full specialist service which made no difference, considered fitting an exhaust system at a cost of nearly £800 to solve the problem. I said it can’t be that bad and took it for a drive, it was appalling, (especially...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm sure I'm not alone in having a badly fitting passenger air bag cover on my 156. The two plastic pins on the cover don't fit very well in the holes in the metal bracket and the cover usually pops up in the bottom right corner. Well I replaced the pins, the new ones are a different design...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Right then, i knew eventually i would have to ask the question. Having done a fair bit of searching, i cant come to much of a conclusion with what to do with creaking front suspension. So are my options: 1-Replace with oem 2-Replace with ebay, considering i might be doing them again soon...
  13. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Fellow Spider owners, im sure you have all researched how to care for your mohair hoods and like myself bought the Autoglym and Renovo products and fabsil waterproofer. I have been very slack for the last 12 months with my daily driver and my hood was covered in moss and mildew. Tried the...

    Cure for fading Alfa badges Hi guys I have a lovely Nuvola Blue 147 but the badges had faded badly. So I set out to find a quality cure without breaking the bank and having to shell out £50 plus on new badges that will faded again. After many long searches. Found a guy in Bulgaria who makes...

    Hi, My fuel pipe is resonating again a short term fix of reseating it - what's the long term solution ? tia, Mike.
  16. Alfa GTA
    Is there any cure for the floatiness experienced at very high speeds on 156 chassis? I have FSDs and Pro Kit springs on decent tyres. I find the ride becomes floaty and lacks the solidity of lower speeds.
  17. South Africa
    I have two leaks which really annoy me which I can't seem to get fixed. Leak 1: My car has had a leak which drops from the bellhousing for the longest time. The reason is that the last mechanic used a drill with a pointed end to modify the crank (it was a 116 motor) to get a pilot bushing to...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As I way of saying thanks for some great help in here I have 2 little bags of Kluber Isoflex NCA15 grease. If you suffer from squeaky creaky clutch pedal syndrome and you have identified that it's coming from the push rod shaft this is the cure..! Remove rubber cap and push pedal in about an...

    Just a heads up to you guys. I've fixed my auto wipers but you might want to look at the last post about the box loaction and do what I have done to prevent it screwing yours up in the near future which it will due to it's location :rolleyes: wipers-wont-park-or-work-on-auto-wipe AO thread by me
  20. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi there, probably put this on many times before but here goes,. My rear screen looked a right mess with white stretch marks on it from years of folding . Boil your kettle , grab a coffee , pour the rest of the water on the rear screen and slowly rub it on the inside with a cloth and keep...
