    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have just changed the brake pads for the first time on my 147 and I am now getting a squeaking noise which stops when I apply the brakes. The squeaking only starts after about 5 minutes of driving but then is constant (other than under braking). I did notice that 1 of the old pads was almost...

During that time I lost all power steering and had to drag the car round the...
  3. Insane squeaking

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 159 V6 has just developed the squeakiest of squeaks from, I’m sure, the front suspension. On and off it will squeak like a bucket of mice for a couple of miles and be quiet, and then start again. Last work in that area was front lower arm bush replacement by AutoLusso six months ago...
  4. squeaking noise that appears to be coming from the front wheels

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi All Our little Mito has started squealing recently it is the 2014 twin air version, it doesn't do it all of the time and we wondered if it was something to do with the brakes binding. Oddly enough it sometimes stops when you apply the brakes and sometimes it starts again...... We wondered...

  6. Brake Squeaking whilst driving

    Alfa MiTo
    So When I am driving my brakes are making a constant squeak, I think it seems to happen more and louder when I steer towards the right. It sounds as if it is coming from the back, but I only had my rear pads / Discs done 3 weeks ago. I'm also getting a loud squeak from when using the brakes...

  9. 159 squeaking in cold weather

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 159 2.4 squeaks/chirps in cold weather and I've run out of ideas. It sounds like an auxiliary drive belt so I've progressively replaced the long serpentine belt, tensioner, alternator belt, and most recently, the crank pulley (TVD) and idler. Changing the crank pulley has definitely reduced...
  10. 159 squeaking sound handbrake?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, Since a month now, I noticed a weird squeaking sound which seems to be caused by the handbrake? To reproduce I parked my car, put the handbrake on, open the drivers door and while seated 'jump' up and down with your butt on the seat and presto a squeaking sound can be heard coming from...

    Hello all. This is my first post in here and I'm after some advice if possible... I bought my 159 1.9ti Sportwagon in December because my heart won the battle over my head (heads choice was a Mazda 6 estate!). I don't regret it for a minute but I knew what I was letting myself in for! Over the...

    What can it be? Bad alignment? Engine belt?
  14. Squeaking noise when idling

    Alfa Giulietta
    Morning, I'm getting a noise from my G when idling. 2016 Veloce with just over 3k on the clock. It's worse when I've been driving so the engine is warm. It's a definite squeak, like a belt or something, gets worse if I apply some revs and then goes away. Any ideas? I'll post a video when I...

  17. big clunk, a rattle under the car and then alot of squeaking when braking....

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider an (I think successful) effort to fully bed in my new performance friction pads on my new brembo discs, I finally managed on the motorway this evening to get the brakes up to a decent temperature and use them in an exuberant and gratuitous manner. By braking very firmly from somewhere...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I thought there was a thread on this symptom already, but I can't find it so I'll post the solution anyway. PROBLEM: When accelerating in 1st or 2nd there was a squeaking like a dogs chew toy/Flipper the Dolphin coming from under the bonnet - somewhere sort of in line with the steering wheel...
