    Hi, Now that it is getting colder I've noticed a lot more condensation inside the car when I fire her up in the morning.. In fact the condensation inside the car is worse than the condensation on the outside of the car! Is this normal? Anything I should check..or get checked by the dealer...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Evening all, Just a post to document a few things that I have done on the 156 over the past month or so, this is my daily driver so have been using the Subaru for the time being whilst the Alfa Romeo has been off the road (I forgot how expensive it was to run!). To be fair, I've gone to town a...

    My 156 TS has suddenly developed heavier steering and the clutch getting also feels heavy. The gears also feel a little stiff. Is this a hydraulic problem? Very disappointing as I have just had timing belt service and the performance was clearly improved...

    Hi All, I have noticed my 147 2005 1.9 jtd is really heavy to turn when reversing, guessing its a power steering problem, any advice or guidance would be most welcome? TIA Andy
  5. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all. I took my 159 2.2 Lusso on its first long motorway run yesterday and found that when braking heavily at speed it will pull to the right, and also there is some rumbling through the brakes. There's no pulling when driving, only when braking heavily. At speeds over 30 mph there appears...
  6. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi, The clutch is really heavy on the GTV, so much so that after my 7 mile city commute my foot and leg are aching. Whilst this is a good workout it's less than ideal. I'm worried that this means its on its last legs though the gear change if pretty good and the bite is still low down on the...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I wonder if you can help? I've been to look at a GT 1.9 JTD today (late 2004 model with 60K miles on the clock), I like the look of it, but I'd not driven one before (neither a 156 or 147 either for that matter!) and a couple of things struck me that I'd be grateful for your views and...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So, I was due to sell the car this week...but fate has kicked me in the dangly bits. I have a heavy fuel leak from the top of one the injectors on my 20v 156. Diesel literally pi**es out of it. Is this just a simple injector out, fit new (copper?) seals and injector back in? Or something...

  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, i was looking at at 156 1.9 JTD sport today and the steering was pretty heavy, it was accurate and all that and didn't require differing levels of force to move but was still stiffer than pretty much anything else i've ever driven (not that i've driven a lot). Is this normal? [email protected]
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    In my haste to shut the window as the hevens open i managed to completely break the switch. I managed to eventually close the window and as its in the driver console i have swapped it out with one of the rear ones. However i would like the rear occupants to be able to open window and close the...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Booked the GT in this Saturday because my clutch has been getting randomly heavy. There's no real pattern to it, but the clutch will be as light as a feather but out of nowhere I'll be driving along, or stop at lights, then put the clutch pedal down and it's like I'm putting the clutch down on a...
  13. Alfa Giulietta
    Buzzing under Hard throttle?!?! Well here we go.. noticed a slight vibration under mid- heavy acceleration. Feels like a fast vibration coming from middle or and front of car.. i was stationary and revved it to 5k rpm and when i let the throttle off and the revs dropped, the noise was really...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Had my old 2002 10v since last September. Bought her for a fair price at 800 quid and in all honesty she goes like a train. She has 156k on the clock (very apt) and does 2 -400 miles every week without missing a beat and even with my lead foot she returns 41mpg's. She has a...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Just purchased a nice looking 3.2 GT and was after a couple of pointers. The car has a main dealer FSH but the servicing has been done early. The last was at 57K and it had a cam belt and water pump at 34K. It now has 68K on the clock so i am assuming it needs a service. I was planning on...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Guys, My first technical query since I got my GT so hope somebody may be able to help me. When reversing I hear what can only be described as a heavy grinding (like a "DUG DUG DUG"). I thought initially it was coming from the drivers side as that's what it sounded like but passenger over the...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So today took the GT out, car is shuddering a tiny bit in 1st gear and progressively got a little worse. I immediately put it down to clutch slip starting. When I stopped at the car park I smell burnt clutch even though I wasn't accelerating hard as I assumed the clutch was on the way out...

    Hi , I have recently bought a new plate for my OH Alfa 147 and have previously used heavy duty pads to stick a plate on which did the trick nicely. I notice the front of the alfa plate curves slightly - would these pads do the trick or do i need to drill them :confused: Thanks
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Afternoon, I've had my GT 1.9 JTD about 2 years now and covered approx 35k miles mostly on A roads and motorways, and haven't had any major problems, apart from tyre wear. I drive like a nun due to diesel prices but I'm now needing my 4th set of tyres. The tread is ok on the outside of the...
  20. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hey guys, I'm looking for a heavy duty clutch for my 2000 alfa spider ts after I wore my valeo one out in 6 months :/ (two track days and a lot of high rpm rough changes. So far I've looked on eper and the part numbers are different from 156/147/gt to the gtv/spider, I assumed this means they...
