    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys. 2 days ago I bought this horrid Alfa Romeo 147 for pennies as it's seen better days. I bought it for the same amount it's worth in scrap, don't mind spending money on it to make it nice. So when I initially inspected the car the car sounded like a diesel. I suspected it was a bad...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I put this in the ICE forum, but no one is responding :( I was wondering if anyone could recommend some good speakers for the front doors of a '64 Giulietta (2015 registered)? Mine are fooked, and wondered if I could get better ones that fit in the apertures, I don't want to make ANY...

  8. Knocking sound from 156 centre console area

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My V6 has developed a knocking sound. To me it seems like it is coming from inside the dash and happens when I just start to move the car or if I accelerate lightly or brake a bit. It sounds like metal knocking on plastic or maybe two hard plastics knocking together. It's quite noticeable. It...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I have experienced a strange noise. It only appears when engine is running at about 1500-1900 rpm and even then its not always there, comes and goes. It kinda fades in and fades out. When this noise is annoying me, i step on the gas, car downshifts, rpm goes higher and the noise is gone...

  15. Thumping sound from rear when braking/turning (and other times)

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all! I've got the weirdest sound happening at odd times, but mostly when braking or turning, that sounds like something is rolling around in the boot. It's not something that happens every time I brake, or when I brake harder or softer than usual, and it's not something that necessarily...
  16. MiTo veird sound on a hard acceleration

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi everybody, I noticed a weird sound coming from under the hood on a hard acceleration (under engine load). This came first last autumn and has been audible since then. Driving normally with smooth acceleration or car being stationary there are no abnormal sounds. Turbo's heat shield tightened...
  17. GT 3.2 V6 Busso - what's this rattling sound?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    If it isn't clear enough it sounds like a metallic rattle coming from around the cambelt area. It's not the tappets (they are tapping which may be slightly evident). Its a very obvious metallic bearing type of rattle.

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi Guys, I bought a few months ago a mito 1.4TB 155cvs. The problem is, in the first few miles the car makes a noise as if something is touching the brake disc and stops making noise when the car warms up. I found a video on youtube with the same problem: The car is an Astra but the noise is...
