  1. Front suspension squeak

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, My Alfa Romeo 159 saloon has developed a squeak on the front right in the area of the suspension. I have replaced the top mounts, upper and lower arms and now the shocks but the squeak still hasn’t gone away. The anti roll bar links are in good condition as that was my next idea. Has...
  2. Rear wheel "squeak" noise

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Model : Brera S - 2.2 petrol I have a high pitch "squeaking" noise coming from my rear drivers side wheel. It only happens at a low speed (ie. 20mph or lower), and it only happens either when it's warm weather or the car has been driven for a while. It's almost like something has heated up...

    Alfa Giulia
    I seem to be getting a squeak from the rear of my car, it can definitely be heard at low speed braking, seems to sound like it's coming from the suspension but wondering if anybody else has had the same problem? When the car is cold it can't be heard but when it's warmed up it's definitely...

  7. Squeak after steering fluid change

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, today I have drained my power steering fluid and added the Gi-r green fluid rather than the red fluid. The good news is the steering feels much better now and generally less noisy. The bad news isn’t it vibrates more and I now have a slight squeak when turning the wheel at slow...

  9. Squeak / Creak on ignition? Bushes?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've got a Brera 2.0 JTDM - when starting cold there's what I can only describe as a high-pitched creak from somewhere in the lower regions that lasts about a second - it also happens when driving over (*******) speed bumps. It's not loud, but Alfa specialist said it could be the bushes?

    Hi, I have a weird sound that I can only describe that sounds like when you let air out of a balloon but squeaking it (hope that makes sense) but it sounds right behind the dashboard. More prevalent in Dynamic than normal. Guessing boost leak, but are any lines right behind the dash? Car...
  13. Slight knocking and squeak from front suspension

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I experience some squeaking/knocking from the front suspension when driving over a rough piece of road or uneven surfaces. The sound seems to quiet down when driving at higher speeds. I also hear it when driving around in "parking-lot" speeds while turning. Turning in general will also cause a...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, I've noticed a squeak over bumps and if I lean on/rock the nearside front area,I imagine a suspension squeak. I had a new upper arm fitted a few weeks there any reason why a brand new suspension arm may squeak or have I just developed an annoying but coincidental issue in the...

    Bit of an odd one, car developed a Loud squeak when I turn the steering wheel (either direction). Noise definitely coming from front off side (drivers side) wheel, very noticable when I turn wheel with door open. Noise is not mechanical grinding (power steering fluid ok)or electrical whirring...
