  4. Wipers not working 99% of the time, noisey.. Is the motor shot?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everybody, Recently my wipers developed a strange noise when they were in use, like loud humming sound.. They stopped working completely a few days ago and I tried lots of times to get them to come on. Today they came on just when I needed them, when it was pouring down and I couldn't see...

  9. 156 SportWagon : trailing arm bushes are shot

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    OK, had a knocking from the rear for a while. Car went in for a basic service yesterday and they had a look (local independent) and said the trailing arm bushes are shot, the ones that fit into the hub carrier. They're quoting "roughly" £50 a side inc. parts and labour with a caveat that it...
  10. Long shot... Porsche 993: where was it sold?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Hi all, A little while back, this 993 in arena red caused a mild ripple on some Porsche forums and on Pistonheads. Despite this, I can't find the threads relating to it, nor to the dealer involved. I'm only interested as I'd like to check their current stock, and recall that they had a few...
  11. WTF - Wheel bearing shot after 4K miles...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    What do they make these things of chocolate?? Apparently water may have penetrated the seal and caused the bearing to fail.... there was no warning in the manual saying to drive in dry weather only!! :lol: Is this a common issue?
  12. Cold weather or suspension shot?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I bought my alfa 156 2 weeks ago today and to begin with things weren't so bad, I felt like it floated on the road, Today, every bump can be felt, the front suspension lets out a nasty creek when going over bumps, I've almost got a pounding headache from a 4 mile journey! What is the likely...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Just wondered if any members on here used to own DK57 ZWH - Black 1.9JTDm 159 Lusso.
  14. A Long Shot - 2000 car- is this your service record?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi The service record I received with my Alfa is obviously not for my car so whose is it? Rather than pester the dealers who must have more expensive fish to fry I thought- how about posting it? PDI 19/01/00 DC Cook (Motors) Derby 12000ml 12184 09/06/00 Tates Portslade East Sussex...
  15. Valve guides shot within 3000kms - due to overfuelling?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My Phase 1 2.0 Twinspark started pushing out oil through the exhaust in the form of a cloud of smoke (especially when under power). But she was starting well (hot or cold), idled beautifully and pulled as strongly as ever. The engine was rebuilt from top to bottom, by a rebuilder with...
  16. TYRES SHOT AT 6k

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Well my 2.0 159 Ti is going in Monday for 2 new front tyres. They have lasted 6k and are truly knackered. i know the Tyre wear was going to be bad but 6K is a bit of a joke. :mad: has anybody had to get them changed earlier than this? They did wear on the insides more than the outsides so im...
  17. Spider action shot

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
  18. Advice needed: shot bottom end on GTV

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all Just need a little advice... My GTV has a shot big end bearing on cylinder 1. I thought I might get away with a set off shells - but it has gone again straight after. My options are as follows Sell the car as a project - is there much appetite for cars that need engine work. How much...
  19. Shot Variator??

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, My 156 2.0 TS underwent an engine rebuild last year (at great expense) and it's been running great since. I think my Variator is shot though (or certainly on it's way out) as sometimes when I start it up, I get the diesel taxi soundtrack for a few seconds then it shuts up. Sometimes...
  20. Good news-bad news-good news-long shot

    General Alfa Discussion
    Good news - had a fella come to see our apartment last night and he is very keen on buying by all accounts. He may be putting in an offer tomorrow (has been for sale for a year so we had sort of given up hope) :thumbs: Bad news - if above does happen I will need to raise some cash for a deposit...
