    (Alfa 159 2.4JTDM Sportwagon) Started bleeding on the rear... first wheel bled OK.

Pedal continues to be soft and very difficult to get any fluid moving...

    Alfa Giulia
    I'm seeking stories with positive outcomes! As posted elsewhere, it appears (though not officially confirmed), that the Giulia Veloce I ordered back on the 26th September is stuck somewhere in the Giulia/Stelvio brake fluid debacle. Communications I've been having with customer services in...

Now I have done all the reading before and repeated the reading last week before finally deciding that I will try the red to green fluid...

  12. Squeak after steering fluid change

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, today I have drained my power steering fluid and added the Gi-r green fluid rather than the red fluid. The good news is the steering feels much better now and generally less noisy. The bad news isn’t it vibrates more and I now have a slight squeak when turning the wheel at slow...
  13. "Normal" low brake fluid?

    Alfa Giulia
    Guys As I point out to my dealer that the level of brake fluid is below Minimum, I am told that this is normal and due to the brake pads wearing out. They decided not to add any fluid. Any comments/similar stories? Note: no warning light on my dashboard: just my observation directly looking...

    Hi I have 06 plate Brera with 150kms on the clock. My power steering has started to groan a lot more than usual, so I had a look under the bonnet.

Anyway I have the reddish PAS fluid and I do feel...
