    Hi All I am on my second Giulietta, the first being an early Veloce and the second a recent QV Line. Both cars have been fitted with the shiny silver sports peddles with useless rubber grips. In both cars they have been absolutely horrendous when the soles of your shoes are damp. On a number...

  6. (Intermittent) Clutch peddle vibration

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Occasionally when starting the car (1994 156 20v) the clutch peddle vibrates horribly whilst in gear. Changing gears is possible but is a little more difficult however the majority of the vibration is felt whilst in any gear. After about 10 minutes it stops and everything feels normal, just to...
  7. Clutch Peddle Travel

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, I’ve recently been on a road trip round Europe in my “07” Spider 3.2 Q4 with no massive issues or problems during the hard driving 3,000 or so miles covered. The only observation was on a particularly hot day 35 degrees after a spirited drive up a pass in the Pyrenees involving a lot...

  13. 159 Clutch Peddle

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    After 2-years of near perfect driving, my 159 is starting to suffer with a clutch peddle that will depress on startup, but will then not return without assistance i.e. my right foot underneath it. This will only happen a couple of times then all is OK, oh and it doesn't happen all the time only...
  14. Idle all over the place with clutch pedal pressed in

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Folks, I've read a few threads regarding the idle control valve, not sure if that's what causing the problems. Any advice would be much appreciated :) As the title says the idle on the GTV (2.0 twinnie) is all over the place when changing gear and pressing in the clutch pedal - it'll go...
  15. Sticky brake peddle

    Alfa 164 & 166
    After an overnight rest the brake peddle feels like it's sticking! Once pressed it is normal again. I have re-lubed the assembly but to no avail? Is this a pre-curser to something grim? Anyone any ideas? The brakes work perfectly and pull straight and true.
  16. Clutch peddle disconnected

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My clutch peddle has come loose from what I believe to be the clutch pump in the footwell. There is a gold looking ring which a black plastic goes inside and then slides on to the peddle. It is the plastic that has come off. Does anyone know were I can get a replacement? What is the reason for...
  17. Clutch peddle sticks

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Anyone had trouble with the clutch peddle sticking on 159? I press the peddle and it returns 95% back to the top position and then a second later returns to the top. Alfa main dealer says they want to take out the gearbox to check the flywheel and clutch bearing...sounds extravagant to...

  20. 146 clutch peddle

    Alfa 145 & 146
    I've got a 146 ti that I've had for a few of months. Been of the road for a while with one thing or another. Slowly getting round to fixing all the problems one at a time. Since I've had it, it's had a saggy clutch peddle. It hasn't quite got the resistance in it to pull it back up some of the...
