Do you guys get a new clutch slave cylinder upon clutch replacement? My 159 has done about 104k miles and it has never had a new slave cylinder also it’s going to get a new clutch soon. My local garage is taking months to get it and I can’t wait soon enough anymore since the clutch kit is...
Weird clunk noise when releasing the clutch pedal on any gear while stationary or moving. Also when I give the throttle a tap while moving. 2.2 jts so I presumed it’s not the bearings from the gearbox.
update: finally my car has a new clutch kit and slave cylinder. The clunk noise was...
So I have a problem with my cruise control that I haven't seen posted before so going to post the details here in the hope of a solution.
Background of the problem:
I had an M32 gearbox rebuild by Autolusso, whining noise and moving gearstick cured though noticed on the drive home cruise...
I have a 159 TBi, had a whining noise while accelerating in the 5th and 6th gear.
I replaced the three endcase bearings to the uprated ones(62mm if i remember correctly) and also replaced the endcase itself to the uprated one.
The whine at the 5th gear disappeared completely, the...
Hello all , re the M32 gearbox .Recently I get whining mostly noticeable in 4th gear (but no movement in the gearstick ) so assuming its the M32 bearing rollers issue and it will eventually fail.
My query is will a gearbox oil change help prolong the time to the bearing failing ?
My 159 1.9JTDM...
My Alfa 159 TBi 2012 and 70,000 miles was not happy, it may help some of you if I go through its recent repair.
Symptoms: A 'hiss', clearly not a normal sound, louder on the left of the car and which got louder the faster you drove and the higher the gear - they are connected of course...
reading about my car and the gearboxes problem overall on the 1.9jtd I´ve checked FIAT eper and the code for my Gbox is 55231555.
Can anybody say me if this gearbox is causing problems with the bearings?
Hello from Ireland!
Took the plunge and bought an Alfa, always wanted a BMW but there's too many arrogant BMW drivers out there so decided to try something different.
Bought a 2008 159, 1.8 MPI Petrol in Red. Fell in love with the styling and colour immediately. I did some research beforehand...
Is it possible to change M32 gearbox that is fitted on 1.9JTD 16V engine (AR156SW '05) for AW TF-80 SC auto gearbox that also fits on 1.9 JTD 16V engines? Not interested in electronics, but just pure mounting holes. driveshaft etc.
Sadly I couldn't find anywhere technical schematics or how are...
Hi All has anyone replaced the driveshaft oil seals on the M32?
Once the shaft is removed and the gear oil drained do the old ones simply hook out and the new ones press/tap in?
The seal on the right hand/long driveshaft is weeping oil where it enters the diff. and needs to be pulled and replaced.
As title really..
I've noticed an odd noise when driving - it sounds as if it's coming through the vents.. It doesn't sound much like a whine at the moment, but it only occurs when I'm in gear... It also appears to die down once the engine is warm..
Could it be the start of the infamous...
Ever since I've taken ownership of my 159SW TBi I've noticed a speed-related whine, faint but it's there. The previous owner has painstakingly maintained the car (I actually have a service history dating back to the original order for the car!) but I dread the notorious M32 gearbox... On the...
What's the M32 box like in a 159 TBI 200? Is it any more (or less!) reliable with the petrol engine (ie. lower torque) than with the diesels?
I'm getting my 159 on Sunday. What sort of preventative maintenance do I need to do on the gearbox to ensure it's as reliable as it can be?
My apologies for rehashing a well discussed topic, but after reading a lot of information about the amount of oil the M32 gearbox takes I am confused.
Today, among other things, my mechanic changed the oil in my 159 TBI M32 gearbox. He says he drained the gearbox and refilled it with 2 liters...
It is my turn to solve the dreaded M32 problems this car has.
The bright side is that I see that this gearbox has become well known and the fixes seem less scary than they there 5 years ago.
Problem is, we don't have workshops who specialize in those gearboxes specifically since...
I'm having my gearbox bearing replaced on my 159, just checking to make sure these are the correct set?
Has anyone used these in theirs?
We've had a right saga with my Mum's Brera 2.2sv (06, 50k, owned from new) recently.
It started with a trip to Autolusso for timing chains. £1k later and on the way back my Dad noticed what he thought was a noise wheel bearing.
We investigated and found on of the rear springs was broken...
I was thinking of swapping out the M32 from my 1.9 to a F40 box from a 2.0 JTDM.
The bell housing looks the same but the shaft mount/carrier bearing are different.
Has anyone done this conversion?
I would use the 2.0 shafts but which Clutch/Flywheel combo?
Gear Selector Cables?
The reason I was...
