  2. Does your car not like mornings?

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi guys, I find that every morning my car is squeaks in the first few minutes after I start her up, most noticeable when braking - it doesn't sound like brake squeal, instead more like from the suspension. It normally stops after a few minutes. Anyone noticed this? Or perhaps it's just me...
  3. Brera airbag light on cold mornings

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Alright guys, couldn’t find anything after a quick search so wondering if anyone else has experienced the following. 1.5 degrees this morning and the airbag failure light is on. Even after the car has warmed up, turning ignition on and off does not clear the fault. I plan to read the code and...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just thought i would share my thoughts with you all. Have just spent nearly 1 hour in my spider travelling to work looking at all the sad dreary faces on all the other motorists. I feel fantastic, what a great start to the day, never mind the wind noise from the leaky roof, the poor quality...

  8. 147 windscreen wipers operating spontaneously on cold mornings

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello All, I've just bought a 'new' 57 plate Alfa 147 :) Unfortunately, it's giving me some problems :( On cold mornings, when there's condensation on the windscreen, the windscreen wipers start as soon as the ignition is turned. They continue to operate as if you had set the stalk to...

  10. 147 alarm / icy mornings

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Anyone else has this before? This is the second time I've seen this behaviour, both on the mornings where I've had to scrape the ice off the car.... I always release the boot first, so I can put stuff in before I get into the car. The boot unlocks with the remote (I can hear the clunk...
