  2. Front end clunking and groaning

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Alfa 159 noisy front knock. Not unusual as Alfa seem to use cheese as a major component in their bushing :lol: I am trying to work out whether it is ARB bushes or upper wishbone. I think the drop links look good. A couple of videos showing what I think is excessive lateral movement of the...

  4. Groaning noise when engaging 1st and reverse

    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...
  5. Groaning from rear brakes when hot

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My rear passenger side brakes groan somewhat when they are warm. And it's getting worse. Also sometimes it sounds like the pads are still rubbing when you release the brakes. Any ideas? Earlier this year I replaced, the discs & pads (all round), both rear calipers, handbrake cables and...

  10. Strange groaning / whirring noise when the revs drop

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    As it says really. The beast has developed a noise that happens when lifting off or changing gear. It's like a groaning or whirring noise that drops in tone in line with revs. It's only really noticeable higher up the range. I'm fearing the worst obviously. Still under warranty but I'm...
  11. creaking and groaning - is it my bottom wishbone connections?

    Alfa GTA
    The car has just started to develop some proper groaning or creaking when driven. Sounds a bit like an old barn house door. I got a friend to look underneath, not the easiest thing to do on a GTA, whilst I bounced up and down on the cill. We both thought it was the in board 'wishbone' joints...
  12. Squeaking / groaning steering

    Alfa GTA
    Ever since I had the car I was told it had a 'weeping' power steering pipe... and every time the undertray was removed it was pooled in red fluid. Fair enough, I was just topping it up every month or so, and it was fine. I noticed it would groan and squeak when it was getting low, so that was my...
  13. Groaning bushes..?

    General Alfa Discussion
    I put a new clutch into Titch, the Younger Mrs S. Cinquecento, a couple of weeks ago. Recommended, if you want to know what it's like wrestling with a werewolf... :D Anyway, it all went well if you ignore all the scratch-marks... and the beast works spectacularly better.. (almost can't feel...

  15. Groaning sound at low speed

    Alfa Giulietta
    Pulling away a few times today while on a run through clitheroe to Lancaster via trough of bowland a groaning sound could be heard from my beloved Julie. If I had to liken it to anything I have heard it was like a set of drum brakes binding. Any ideas
  16. Alfa GT 3.2 V6 Groaning on full lock

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Can anyone help please with a groaning noise on left and right lock when driving forward round a corner (not in reverse), and only once the car is warmed up. I have a 2004 Alfa GT 3.2 v6. Last September I had a Q2 diff fitted and it was fine. In November I had Eibach lowing springs and Koni...

    hi all, my 147 sele has developed a sort of groaning noise when you brake heavily, seems to kick in when you decellerate quickly from 30-0. any ideas? cheers.
  18. Strange groaning noises...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Ok, so i bled my brakes after i cleaned up my calipers; but now when i'm going up on an incline and travelling below 10mph, i hear a groaning noise coming from below (only occurs in this scenario). The noise is not audible outside the car and depressing the clutch doesn't affect the noise...

  20. Engine Groaning at approx 2k revs?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Now its not your usual growl just before 3000-3500 revs but instead a very low pitch groan that occurs when accelarating between approx 2000-2500 rpm in all gears. Car is going in for a cambelt change end of this month and have been told the variator is getting changed and this is responsible...
