    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone. My beloved Alfa GT JTDm has decided to give me some headache today.

  4. Humming and vibrations Alfa 159

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi everyone. My Alfa has developed a humming noise together with big vibrations when driving. You can hear the noise clearly when driving above 50-60km/h (the faster the louder it sounds and seems that the sound is picking up the speed, I know it sounds funny putting it that way but this is...
  5. Pulsing humming sound and vibration from the pedal at speeds >60

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So basically, when driving on the motorway a vibration and humming pulses above 60mph. I can only describe it as like driving over the rumble strip for 1.5 seconds and then off for 1.5 seconds and then on again - son on so forth. I just had it serviced and the bearings apparently are fine...
  6. Brakes droning / humming noise on cornering

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just put some grooved discs, EBC greenstuff pads and braided hoses on my 147... Expected the whirring, droning noise on braking, but I'm getting a horrible droning / resonance noise on cornering that goes away with light application of brakes! It also does it pulling away first thing in the...
  7. Low whirring / humming from rear

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi folks. There's a low sort of whirring/humming from one of my rear wheels, I'm assuming either a wheel bearing is on the way out, or its a dodgy tyre. The rear tyres are fairly new, but the humming started a few days after they were fit, so it could be a tyre, I'm going to swap them to the...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi everyone, I've had my 159 JTDM for a year now. It's an 06 plate and has around 75k on the clock. Just recently it's started to make a humming noise that sounds like it's coming from just behind the centre console in the engine. It tends to happen when I'm low on fuel, after I've driven at...

  16. Humming from front?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My car's developed a hum fron somewhere in front. It sounds very much like a wheel bearing, but when traveling through tight corners the sound changes from corner to corner. When I turn left it disappears completely, but becomes a little bit louder when I turn right. Does this sound like a wheel...
  17. Strange "humming" sound from the rear when driving

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Only just noticed this yesterday, but when I'm driving at speed I can hear a humming sound from the rear, my limited knowledge guesses its wheel bearing? Its not really loud, but loud enough to be annoying so I need to sort it out, as I do mostly motorway miles

  20. Humming at 50mph

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My car has developed a sort of humming noise at around 50MPH. If i speed up it seem's to go. Does any one think it could be a wheel bearing? If so how do I identify which wheel and is it easy to change?
