    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I hear a high pitched noise from the area of the injectors when ideling, I have not much experience with diesel in general but I feel like it does not sound right. It is a bit hard to notice over the idle noise in my video. I do not hear anything inside the car or when driving so hard to...
  2. 159 Head unit stuck in high pitch noise

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    (Sorry about the tiny video, free version of iPhone app did this to me :P) So it happened today for the first time. I was on the phone via bluetooth and suddenly cut off BT connection so I carried on the phone call with phone. This happened few times in the past but it was different today. It...
  3. high pitch whistling sound, stops while breaking?

    Alfa MiTo
    Not sure if this could be some sort of brake rubbing issue. only picked the car up last week but driving home we noticed this high pitch whistling noise as we were getting close to home(after having driven around 20 miles). It stopped every time I touched the breaks, and also hard croners it...
  4. 156 JTD - high pitch squeak / squeal

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As title suggest I have a noise coming from what seems the front of my 156 Sportwagon. The noise does not vary with revs, and goes away when steering is applied so I'm thinking it's a wheel bearing. Does that sound plausible? Cheers MC

  6. Higher pitch whine from engine (1.9 jtdm)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Recently there's been a higher pitch whine from the engine but I'm not sure what it is. It matches the revs and you can hear it with the clutch disengaged. It's more noticeable when you're off the throttle and the revs are just dropping. The sound is not dissimilar to a transmission in reverse...
  7. High pitch whine

    Alfa MiTo
    The other halfs Mito 2 135 sportiva is only 4 months old but this week there is loud high pitched whine from the drivers side wheels, its that bad you can hear it from 50 metres away. Something similar happened to her last 135 veloce when it was 6 months old and the dealer said it was dirt...
  8. High pitch whine not the clutch!!!

    Alfa MiTo
    Had my MiTo in at my local Alfa dealer (Chris Variava in Nottingham) who are by far the best car dealership I've ever dealt with. Anyway, had a high pitch banshee whine when reversing and I thought it was the clutch. Turns out it's a noisy flywheel, as they replaced one on a Giulietta last...

  11. High pitch sound from wheel

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Been having a high pitch sound from the front left wheel when driving for long distances, not so bad on short journeys. From last forum I have had brake calipers greased, but it is still happening. Any ideas what the sound might be? Cheers.
  12. Reversing sensors higher pitch

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Going into reverse this morning, I'm getting a much high (and louder!) pitch beep from the reversing sensor. My gut tells me this means they're not working (although I heard the normal beep too) as they should. A quick flick through the manual and I couldn't see anything, but I was in a rush...
  13. Suspension thread pitch importance

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All, Currently in the process of renewing the rear suspension on the GTV. I've fitted the ball joint, ARB drop links and new track control arms. Getting the bolts out of the track control arms was very difficult as a few of the bolts had completely seized in the bushing. I've replaced all...
  14. Continuous high pitch whine...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Can anyone suggest what this noise is? It starts at around 20mph and gets higher and a bit louder as my speed increases. Its not anything to do with the gearbox - if I take it out of gear it doesn't stop or change. It is not a wheel bearing as that is more of a hum and can usually be identified...
  15. High Pitch Fuel Pump Noise....

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, After searching on here for what the high pitch (exceedingly annoying!!!!) noise from behind is on my Spider, it's apparent it's the fuel pump squeeling away... I cant seem to find any suggestions about just how to reduce or even get rid of the noise (except for not tighting the fuel...

  18. Annoying high pitch noise - Any ideas?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have finally become an Alfa owner, picked up my factory new 159 1750TBi this Friday. It's absolutely a fantastic car, but it has one annoying little issue: It makes a high pitch noise! I have tried to locate the source, and it seems to be related to the radio/sattelite-navigation. When I...

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Morning all, I’ve got a standard 2.2 brera and had to do an emergency stop on the motorway this morning, I’ve always known the brera pitches a lot under braking like my old 147, but this was just alarming, in fairness it was pretty stable just the serious pitching! Any suggestions on how to...
