  1. Knocking noise from rear??

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    While driving last night I started to hear and feel a dull thud from the rear of the car, as I am still waiting to get the rear suspension work done I had some depressing thoughts before I had a chance to stop to check. Turns out the rubber mount on the right side of rear silencer had snapped...

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Hi guys, needing your help in identifying this noise which sounds internal & more prominent at idle, my car seems to be running fine apart from this noise which has got me stumped. I have removed timing belt cover to check for faulty tensioners and pulleys but all seems fine. I have also...
  3. Rear strut mounting knocking

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    It produced a noise but I only noticed it after changing a rear ARB link. Believe it or not, the faulty part is on the left in the pic. Look at the centre recessed plate/washer (coloured silver). I am holding it out as it had become unbonded from the rubber and could move vertically by around...

  5. Knocking sound from 156 centre console area

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My V6 has developed a knocking sound. To me it seems like it is coming from inside the dash and happens when I just start to move the car or if I accelerate lightly or brake a bit. It sounds like metal knocking on plastic or maybe two hard plastics knocking together. It's quite noticeable. It...

    I've got a knocking noise developing over time from the passenger side rear - I've ruled out parcel shelf, boot contents, space saver - what else could it be?

  10. GT knocking from front end

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone, I've just had my GT pass the MOT with NO advisories (or whatever they are called these days). The MOT place is a reputable chain of garages so I'm assuming they would've failed it on the slightest thing, but I was told it was in great shape. When I booked the MOT I also asked them...
  11. Weird suspension knocking

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    As stated in the title, it seems like something is under stress during hard turning left-right and hard stopping and starting and then randomly releases that stress (while waiting for green light) with a knock that can be felt abd heard in the footwell. Also all of a sudden reverse gear started...

  14. 156 TS hard knocking from front

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Although it just passed the MOT, the TS has an occasional hard knocking sound from the front. It's not a bush or ball joint. I spoke with the tester about it and he has the same opinion as I do. We suspect the front anti roll bar links foul on either the strut lower horseshoe bracket or on...

This continues from another thread that I made ages ago with regards to changing my rear suspension. Ever...
  17. Alfa 159 2.4 JTDm knocking noise

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello! Anyone's got an idea what could be this annoying knocking noise from my engine? I've got no idea where it comes from. I used a stethoscope to find it but I hear it the most intensively on the screw of the engine mount next to the water pump. This makes no sense. (At least for me.) I've...
