  1. Noisy doors

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I know this sounds silly but the doors on my 147 are really annoying me. It's the door check straps, they're so damn noisy, clicking loudly every time I open or shut the doors. Is there anything I can do about it?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The diff on my son's 147 has got a bit noisy and is leaking gearbox oil a bit. No serious suggestions please!
  3. Guilietta noisy cabin fan blower

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi :ears: I find the cabin aircon/heating fan/blower really noisy especially on high. Ok yes, I can expect it to be a bit loud on high - but this is deafening. We have to shout to have a conversation. It's always been this way. I have been living with this but now just wondering am I the only...
  4. Noisy power steering pump

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys, My 159 has just started making an awful whining/groaning noise on startup. Am I right in thinking that the reservoir is a weak point on these cars and should be replaced with the updated version? Also, I have the red fluid in mine and want to change it to the GI/R green oil and see...
  5. Noisy tappets ?

    Alfa GTA
    Hi guys did anybody ever heard noise like this coming form the engine area ? It only happens when the engine is dead cold, it last for couple of seconds and then it disappeares until next morning, sometimes I do not hear this noise for days. Any idea what could make such knocking noise ? (...
  6. Noisy Heater Fans!

    Alfa Giulietta
    I picked up my new Giulietta Cloverleaf today... I checked absolutely everything before I bought it - apart from the heater fans! They work just fine and there isn't a problem with the a/c, but man do they make a racket when they're turned up! I've just tried to use them to demist the...
  7. Noisy aircon compressor

    Alfa 164 & 166
    My 166 motor (3.0) has developed an unpleasant chirping sound that rises and falls with engine revs. Fortunately I discovered this morning that the noise stops if I turn off the aircon - hence I assume the compressor has developed a fault. So - some advice, please: - Are there any serviceable...

  9. Air Conditioning Clutch/Pulley Bearing noisy

    Alfa GTA
    Hi All, I haven't posted for a while but I have a 2003 156 GTA 3.2 6 sp manual sedan. The air conditioning compressor clutch/pulley is noisy when the air conditioning is off but the noise disappears when A/C is switched on, so I am assuming it is the bearing in the clutch pulley. Can I buy...
  10. bloomin noisy noises all over my car!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    help! I had the suspension done on my car, full shocks, springs, ARBs and Droplinks. Drives perfectly, but god almighty, during the warmer weather, there were squeeks and creaks galore! I'm pretty certain its the PU bushes up front on the ARB kit, but the rear is a conundrum - I'm certain its...

  12. Noisy electric aerial

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've been reading posts from people with electric aerial problems so I'm sharing my experience fixing my noisy electric aerial on my Spider 916 P2. Makes an awfull grinding noise when extending and retracting. I took it apart and traced the problem to the motor, applied a small amount of GT85...

  15. Alfa 159 SW Noisy OE Roof rack

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, Fitted the original Alfa roof rack today and boy what a shock iv'e just had. Took the car for a quick test drive and it seems that the lower strengthening bar that sits below the main bar, causes so much turbulence, the wind noise is literally unbearable !!! No amount of turning the...
  16. Noisy 147 jtd

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi my 147 jtdm 2005 has become noisy. When I bought it it did sound like a diesel but was relatively quiet. Now 2 years on it is loud at idle and loud going down the street. Almost embarrassing. For example you can't stand next to it and talk as it can be hard to hear over the top. It doesn't...

  19. Noisy Door Pillar (You gotta love the tips you read on this forum)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have had my 2011 159 Ti for a week and it is a beauty, it's much smoother and quieter than my 2007 Lusso, which surprised me considering the 19" wheels. The only niggle I had was a very annoying knocking sound on the door pillar, I can hear it in my right ear and it really irritates me. I...
