  7. Creaks, groans and rattles

    General Alfa Discussion
    I,like many others I suppose, have a few rattles and creaks in my '97 2.0 ts. I was wondering if any you would have some input on the usual noises that spring up, and their possible fixes. I know the build quality isn't great but I would like to try to get rid of these anoying sounds. Cheers, JOC
