  1. Inner CV Joint noise

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've been tracking down a knocking noise over the past few months and I've got it finally locked down to the near side Inner CV joint. Pulling on the shaft I can get a bit of play in only one direction so I am thinking this is likely to be the spider itself rather than the cup. I've got the...
