  1. Rattles & Creaks!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just when I was saying to someone the other day that I thought that my '05 facelift 156 was significantly better built than my '00 V6, it's now making all sorts of noises! I've spent the best part of two days tearing the car to bits trying to cure (a) a dashboard rattle on the passenger side...
  2. Rattles and NVH issues

    Alfa Giulia
    One of the beautiful things about the Giulia is the very quiet and solid feel of the cabin, this characteristic makes it a fantastic cruiser although there is a downside, if a rattling occurs then you can hear it very clearly and very quickly it becomes extremely annoying. Since the first week...

  5. Tailgate rattles at 1700 RPM

    Alfa Giulietta
    I have this weird rattle coming from the tailgate when the engine revs to 1600-1700 RPM. I assume it comes from the tailgate as when I rev with tailgate open, there is no rattle. Anyone has similar problem or even a solution? HELP..

  9. Door rattles?

    Alfa Giulietta
    A few days in to my Giulietta experience, I am slightly troubled by a general surrounding noise of soft-sounding rattles when driving on city streets. The noise isn't coming from the top of the dashboard - that one is activated by coarse road surfaces ;) I'm talking about fairly low speeds -...
  10. Rattles!!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Afternoon all, I was after a bit of advice on dealing with rattles in the interior. I've recently made some significant upgrades to the audio setup (new speakers all round, new head unit, 12" sub/amp) - Its not a 'boom boom' setup and tuned more for quality, though the extra power on the bass...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Guy's, Any tips or adjustments you can do to stop rattles from the front of the hood where it attaches to the windscreen. The hood is located properly and feels nice and tight but I'm still getting buzzes and rattles and they are starting to drive me:rant: Atb,Alex
  12. Dash rattles gone!!!!!

    Alfa Giulietta
    It's a revelation, the car was actually quiet when I took it for a test drive along the road and back. The offending rattles are from the plastic storage/sat nav trim and plastic air vent panel directly behind where they make contact with the dash board. I simply removed the trims and placed a...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi there, I have just bought my first alfa - a 57 brera sv 2.4 diesel 2 weeks ago, despite everyone warning me that they are temperamental... Love the look of it and being in it, but.... Unfortunately I am already encountering a number of problems, and wondered if people could advise or if...
  15. No more rattles!

    Alfa Giulietta
    My dealer had a proper go at the dashboard rattle I complained about and I'm happy to report he managed to fix it completely. He took the dashboard insert off, removed the Blue&Me unit, the passenger airbag and the cubbyhole. One of the screws on the airbag bracket was loose and the Blue&Me...
  16. Rattles? Jtdm or Petrol ?

    Alfa Giulietta
    As above. Does the Petrol or the Diesel rattle, or Both? Does trim level and wheel size affect the issue? Shall we try to look into this, perhaps.
  17. Rattles!

    Alfa Giulietta
    OK!....I've now officially given up on the constant irritating rattles resonating through the dashboard of my £25,000 Giulietta. And no....this thread isn't for the rattles section as I'd like to bring a more discerning single question to the forum table seeming as I've now tried 'everything' in...

  19. GQV rattles!!!

    South Africa
    Let me start off by saying my GTi has never had 1 rattle, not 1...neither has my 147, neither has my father's 156! It seems that every single part in the interior is on a rattle spree! Under the dash, in both B pillars, in all 4 doors, its more like a creak than a rattle, a rattle is a...
