    Hi All, So I have decided to start a thread about niggly issues. Small persistent issues that someone might know an nice quick fix for. For example - Q1 - I have a smokey lumpy cold start on a 2.4 A1 - Disconnect and lock your swirl flaps open until you can get a permanent fix. A couple...
  2. niggly little bits

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    2.4 159 Saloon here, after using her over the weekend, found a couple of niggly little bits with the ol' girl. Nothing too big just figured it'd be nice to have 'em working properly. 1) Folding mirrors only fold half way in on the button. It's like they're trying to fully fold in but something...
  3. GT 1.9 JTDm Issues and niggly stuff

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Chaps my brother is about to take the plunge and join us Alfisti, he favours the oil burners and has a particular liking for the GT. I've read the stickies (water pump etc) and am fully aware of the joint GT/156 issues like squeeky upper wishbones etc. Could any of you more learned chaps or...

  7. Niggly things with my GT JTD

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My JTD GT runs rather well and I don't appear to be plagued by the issues that some people have highlighted. However after my long 45 mile commute from work to home, once it's warmed up, I get an occasional rattle noise when I am releasing the clutch and it just begins to bite, which then...
  8. Few niggly problems...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, First thing, over the past few weeks whenever I turn the steering wheel about 45 degrees in either direction I get a sort of knocking thud sound - which I can 'feel' through the steering. I've jacked the car up to see if there are any visual signs of what could be happening - initially...
