    Hi all, I have bought a MiTo 1.4tb 2008 155bhp a couple of weeks ago and after driving for a while I noticed a weird sound when accelerating on full throttle (I added a video of it). Weirdly it only happens when driving and when the car is in gear. It also only happens when going full...

    After spending lots of time trying to locate the rattle at the back of my GT (inc securing the shelf which is the most common advice), I found the rattle to be the centre rear brake light unit. It was slightly away from the glass and would make this annoying rattle when going over roads that...

    Hello, So I've got a 159 tbi (09) and the climate control fan seems makes a ticking noise when car is started, and then rattles reasonably loudly thereafter while its on. I've looked around online and haven't been able to find where the fan is located in the car (don't really want to...

    Hi all, Does your car sounds like this in cold starts? Video was recorded after 2H of waiting from the last run. Sound is coming from the right side of engine where turbo is located. Rattling slows down when i push down of wastegate armature but loudness remains. Should i be concerned about...

    SOLVED: 159 1750 TBi, messy rattle when warm Dear specialists, During my holiday in France it seems my car developed a messy rattle during coasting and light throttle. The noise is only there when the engine is warmed up! Air conditioning setting has no influence. The problem is I can hear it...

    Hi all, I'm going to tackle the dreaded 156 dash rattles! If I can't stop it I'm seriously considering parting company with my Alfa. I've read loads of threads and guides and think I need to remove both the windscreen air vent and top dash vent to get to some of the likely culprits. It's a...
  7. Alfa Giulia
    I'm sure I've seen this problem before on the forum, but a thread search didn't turn anything up, so here goes. In my Giulia, I get a near constant faint rattle from the front passenger seat when no-one is sitting in it, this varies in intensity from day to day, and occasionally vanishes if I...
  8. Alfa Giulia
    Hi guys. First post here after taking delivery of a new Giulia Veloce 10 days ago. Moved across from a 3 series and I'm loving the drive, very engaging! However, at low speeds (particularly very low speeds and reversing) I am noticing a rattle which is rather annoying. It doesn't sound...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Evening all, Quite a while ago, I posted some issues that I'd had with the suspension on my 1.9 JTD. Basically, I upgraded everything on the front and rear suspension, including all new fixings, and to be honest I've never been happy with it. I bought the car on a whim on 100,000 miles, it...

Car's done 56k 07 plate and timing chain replaced by Autolusso at 31k when warning code came up. Cars been regularly serviced...

    I have a Cf3 2.0 twin spark. There seems to be a loud rattling coming from the variator area, when the engine is under load and under say 1500 rpm. Doesn't make the noise at idle or at higher rpm. Performance is pretty dire too. From what I've read, the normal signs of variator wear are a...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Just bought a 2008 Spider, and like many of you, you start to fix the little niggles that the previous owner had lived with and got used too! One of these is the rattle of the glass in the door when the door is closed. I am guessing the glass has come out of a runner, or a runner has broken...

    My G has the usual dash rattle,I remember reading about an Alfa repair kit for where dash locates near the windscreen but can’t find the info I am after with a search on here or google. Has anyone got the part number for the repair kit?
  14. Alfa MiTo
    So my '09 Mito had this annoying rattle coming from behind the glove box. The rattle noise would intensify when I turned up the blower. At times it would disappear, but in the end it would just be temporary. Maxing out the fan didn't do the trick. Browsing this forum taught me the Mito has some...
  15. Alfa MiTo
    My 2013 QV 170 has developed a low pitched rattle and squeak that is coming from the rear offside area of the car when travelling over smooth surfaces and not necessarily bumps. It's most noticeable at low speed and the rattle can just about be heard at higher speeds. I've checked for loose...
  16. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, I have a 2011 170 MA TCT (RHD) and I've been experiencing a rattle from the front left seat rails. Specifically the rail on the side of the door . Has anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions? I live in Sri Lanka and my Giulietta is just one of 12 in the whole island. So support...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, I have had a 159 for around 4 and half years ago. About 3 years ago it started to have that dash rattle behind the instrument binnacle when travelling over certain speeds and especially worse over certain road surfaces. I tried liberal dosing of the dash trim gaps with silicone...

    Hello everyone, Car began to rattle when cold, I found few screws broken on catalytic converter end, fixed it, but it still makes same sound. My question is can you check the top of the exhaust manifold by removing heat shield from it, and can you tighten the screws that way. Everything...

    Anyone else had a rear door rattle? The door seems like it doesn't close properly. You can push on the exterior of the rear passenger door and it squeaks/rattles. The noise is coming from were the lock engages the striker plate. Do I need to adjust the door so I locks firmly and pulls the...
