  1. 156 Footwell Leak

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    It looks like leaks are fairly common on here, but I don't see exactly this. I've only had the car since January, so I've only experienced it a couple of times, but I've glanced down to see the passenger footwell is soaking wet. The second time it happened, I was lucky enough to see what was...

  3. Coolant in drivers footwell

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Went to check on my stored Spider p1 yesterday and was met with a pint or more of coolant in driver's footwell :disappointed: I'm guessing some kind of heater issue - is there a common point of failure on these? I still have the suspect clutch master to deal with too.
  4. Passenger Footwell Water Leak - QV

    Hi - I know this has been covered before, but the search function isn't working. I've just had the tracker in my QV updated and the fitter notices the sound deadening material in the passenger footwell was damp. Now it could be my daughter has dropped water, but looking unlikely - especially...

    The drivers footwell gets wet in heavy rain. I’ve cleared the drain holes under the scuttle panel but it’s still happening. I can feel it dripping off the back of the trim below the steering wheel. I initially thought it may he air con related and coming from that vent but it’s definitely...
  6. Water in the footwell (2012 159 TI)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    There was one instance last year where the drivers side footwell filled with water during a rain storm. I thought I maybe hadn't closed the door properly and put it down to my stupidity.
