    A few months ago my 147 2.0 TS suddenly took a dislike to engaging gears. Movement across the gate was smooth wit engine off but as soon as it was started up selecting any gear was very difficult. I struggled on and over the period of a couple of days if suddenly again seemed to resolve itself...

    Good afternoon gents (and ladies), My first post in the alfa forum since I recently purchased my first Alfa romeo (about 3 weeks ago), previous owner for 4 years of a Fiat Bravo 1.9TD (which was incredibly fun to drive and to work on, perfect beginners car). So I purchased the car in a good...

    Morning all, In for the annual nct/mot only to fail on the nearside handbrake not working. Have just changed rear discs and pads with brakes working ok so no stuck piston. Checked cable and this is fine also, seems to be pulling the level on caliper ok. Is there anything obvious I have...
  4. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Woke up the Alfetta and it started after a bit of churning. However it will not select a gear, graunching and lurching forward if I start in gear. Clutch feels normal, any ideas? Thanks Rich

    My 2012 1.6 Diesel (6 speed manual) has developed an annoying trait of being difficult to slot into 1st gear at times. Only use first when at a complete standstill and when I go to move off I then cannot get the lever into 1st. I have to re-dip the clutch and give it a good shove. Only...
  6. Alfa Giulietta
    Since picking up my wife's 2.0jtdm with a c635 gearbox we have occasionally had difficulty engaging 2nd gear where the gear stick meets resistance to the last half cm of the throw and needs careful persuasion to engage 2nd. Over the last 15 months of ownership this problem has become more...

  8. Alfa Giulietta
    I seem to be having an intermittent issue when the clutch is raised and it bites in 1st and reverse gears. The noise sounds like a ships fog horn. My Giulietta Veloce has done 41,000 miles, and was purchased used last February, however the guy at the local Alfa dealer would not commit to it...
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    ...yes, it does have a sixth gear :D My problem is the same as described in http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa-147-156-andamp-gt/43466-156-v6-gear-selection.html#post614913 except that I have a GTV. Does the solution (shaving plastic off the reverse inhibitor system) apply to the GTV? I have...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I replaced my clutch on my 156 as it was broken. When trying to start the car for the first time it acted as if I didn't have the clutch pedal in, and the car rolled a bit forward because it was in 1st. After that however the clutch just refuses to engage at all. I am a bit curious about...

    Hi there. I have a 2005 GT JTD In the last few days I noted may air con switch is re-engaging every 30 seconds or so, however there is no change in temperature still coldish. Any ideas what would cause this to happen all of a sudden ? Air con hasn't been serviced in at least 2 years but has...

  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My Wife has had her 159 SW Ti 170 diesel for a couple of months and I have noticed that when changing into 2nd on occasions ( Maybe 1 in 5 Gear changes into 2nd ) there is a brief resistance right at the end of the "throw". This is intermittent and if you release the clutch slightly the gear...

  15. Alfa 164 & 166
    Good Evening, I just got the car from my mechanic for a full service and I noticed that the A/C wasn't cooling, checked the compressor and it was not kicking in. 2 months ago I tested the A/C and was working fine but now it doesn't want to engage. I don't know where is the relay or fuse...
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    On my 159 1.9 JTDm, when I put into reverse (and sometimes into the first gear) I hear a clonk sound with light impact as something has stopped moving. Any idea what this might be? Many thanks in advance.

    Just noticed on the new mot coming in that a steering wheel lock must be operational. Mine engages but it can be forced round with not too much effort. Anyone else have this problem for any pointers before I start to dismantle the steering column? Cheers D

    Have just had my Spider back from a respray and the central locking feature has now stopped working. There is no remote locking feature, only the key. When I lock/unlock either door, the other door lock does not engage. This problem happened a few months ago and went away. Can anyone...

  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello My AC isn't working, I've narrowed the fault down to the AC compressor clutch not engaging. And I think it might be the multilevel pressure switch, but thought I'd ping here to see if there is other things I should be looking at, I've verified that the compressor / clutch isn't engaging...
