  1. Exhaust loose

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Right,another week,another issue- this time it's the Exhaust,the final part of it. I heard o slight abnormal vibration when starting,and at the mot the mechanic said it is loose and it needs a new rubber thing to hold it in place. In his infinite wisdom,he decided not to fix it then so I can...

  4. Handbrake handle mounting come loose

    Alfa GTA
    Hi, after 3 years without an Alfa, i’ve bought a 147 GTA. Absolutely love the car. Got a small problem, one of the bolts securing the handbrake handle has come loose and fallen out. To put a new bolt in does the exhaust and heat shield need to come off?
  5. Loose connection in door connector

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guys Bought a 3.0 1996 recently and I’m going through all the quirks and faults that a car this old obviously has. The electric window on driver side (lhd) didn’t work so I bought a second hand motor which didn’t fit because my car is older. Nevertheless I checked the connector again just to...
  6. Exterior Door Handle Lock Loose

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, My Giulietta (2011) has always (whilst I have owned it) had a loose exterior door lock. It appears that the garage I bought it from a couple of years ago glued it to the door and the glue has stopped working. The handle and lock work s fine. Now it appears that the torx bolt (from what...

  8. Giulietta loose gear knob

    Alfa Giulietta
    The gear knob on my GQV moves a little from side-to-side when you change gear - i.e. not the linkage but the actual knob feels a little loose if you twist it. Is there a fix for this?
  9. Giulietta "Loose" Steering

    Alfa Giulietta
    Apologies if i've missed a post that answers my question, however i have tried searching the forum and cant find a definitive answer. The background: Ive got a 2012 Giulietta 2.0 JTDM and the steering seems to have become a little "loose". By this, i mean the wheels don't always feel like they...
  10. Card door leatherette came loose

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there. My car door upholstery has gotten loose(leatherette). I went to an upholstery car shop. They asked 80euros for fixing it, but the guy there told me that it will not be as good as before. He said that the reason for this is that the leatherette is pressed on the card door... I do not...

  12. Mystery wire loose

    Alfa Giulietta
    Need to start off by saying I know little about cars. My rear screen washer currently isn’t working, looked at the engine to see if anything is not connected and found this close to the screen wash. Where is this supposed to be connected to? Any help would be appreciated.
  13. Loose connections?!

    Alfa Giulia
    Any one knows what this cable is for? Found it unconnected yesterday and there was a fitting connector just a few cm away. Connected it and tha car has not exploded, yet. No errors before or after re-connecting the cable. It is located just behind the left head light on a LHD car. It is a 2017...

  15. 147 1.6 120CV - Loose gear stick

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have lots of play on my gear stick, in neutral but also when in gear. The stick does return to center, but feels quite a bit sloppy and I think its getting harder to find the gears each day (I need to also change the gearbox oil but I don't think thats the problem). I took a video of the...

  17. Door lock bracket come loose

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Whilst driving on the motorway the other day I thought I could hear a lot of wind noise so instinctively lifted all the electric window switches to make sure all the windows were fully closed, which they were, so assumed madness or senility had finally set in. The next day whilst being...

  20. Reattach loose TI side skirt

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Bought myself a white 159 TBI ti about a month ago and sorting out some small bits and pieces. Realized the side skirt is a bit loose in the driver side in the front edge. Tried to get some help from EPer but couldn't really find something which helps me. Looking at the it, seems to me be a...
