  1. My new 159 squeaks knock and groans

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, OK apart from the two leaks in the drivers foot well and the boot and the recently fixed boot lid hing replacement I now have a few odd noises... No.1 noise is a squeak when coming on and off the accelerator and changing gear, sounds like it is coming from down by the pedals (carpet is out...
  2. 1.4MA Squeaks when cold

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I have noticed a few weeks ago my engine makes a strange noise until it warms up. I have recorded a video yesterday and here is the link below, can anybody recognize what might be the reason? Can it be an early sign of a failing MA unit? It seems like it is coming from the round gray...
  3. Got some squeaks

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi My gt especially in the morning squeaks when it's colder It is on both front and rear suspension It's much better after I've driven a couple of miles It almost like the rubber has stiffened up and once it had some use it warms up and the squeaks get less. Any ideas or shall I install...
  4. Suspension squeaks and Polyurethane bushes

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I plan on keeping my car for a very long time. In fact for as long as I can... I know that my suspension started squeaking and rattling suggesting that I need to make changes to my suspension. I don't want to go in for something aftermarket and do anything to lower the height. The reason is that...
  5. No more squeaks..!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just had the lower wishbones done, but still a lot of squeaking over the bumpy bits. Had her up on the ramps this morning, and doused every bit of rubber I could find with Helfrauds Silicone Spray. Not a peep out of her now. Highly recommended stuff..:thumbs: Halfords Ireland | Halfords...
  6. Annoying squeaks underneath my Brera!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    At low speed and steering at low speeds, I have started to notice annoying creaking noises coming from underneath the car? Had a look underneath but I couldnt find anything obvious, anyone come across this before?
  7. Rattles and squeaks from inside 147 - any ideas?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 147 is very rattly and squeaky over bumps now and the noises definitely come from inside towards the back. Is there anything prone to working loose that anyone knows about? I really need to sit in the back whilst someone else drives so I can narrow down where the noises come from, but at the...
  8. Cold squeaks

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    First time ive had to use the car on a cold morning today. So after scraping the ice from the window (very early start) I hit the start button to hear a funny sort of squeak. The squeak also happens when you apply load to the engine in gear ie.e jusy after changing gear. It continues to do this...
  9. 159 3.2 squeaks and clunks

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I love my car, I really do. But the noises it makes are frequently annoying and occasionally alarming. Clunking from the transmission when changing gear and occasionally when coming off the accelerator. This is most noticeable in hot weather, I guess because the metal joints expand? Squeaky...
  10. Sportwagon Squeaks and Rattles Cured

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Major success this week in eliminating squeaks and rattles from my Sportwagon, here are the causes and cures I've found: Rubbery squeak from front left when cold - upper left wishbone, silenced for now with spray grease but I'll have to replace it before long Low frequency rattles at certain...
  11. Rattles and squeaks

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I know there have been some posts on this before (and reading them doesn't get me to an answer). Does anyone know the best way to stop the internal light compartment from rattling. Pushing on it whilst driving isn't the best of looks! And, my breaks are seriously embarrassing. Any...
  12. Squeaks and Groans, Whining and Whirring

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'm trying to get to the bottom of a problem with my '99 GTV V6. The problem is characterised by a velocity related hum/whine which is coming from the rear wheels. It starts to get noticeable above 20 mph, seems to quieten down between 50-70 and then increases in volume from 80+ (whenever I'm...
  13. Creaks and squeaks

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Yet another creaky thread! My 156 has a definite creak from the offside front wheel area whenever I start or stop moving. It's loud and I can 'feel' it through the car body. I don't get the creak once I'm moving. If the car is stationary and I turn the steering wheel in either direction, I can...
  14. GT - Couple of Squeaks Need Sorting

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Morning, Got a couple of squeaks in the car that need addressing and wondered if anyone had any tips etc? 1st - The clutch pedal squeaks when released, I'm 99.9% sure it's the hinge in the pedal box. (Had a new clutch late last year). How can I access it best to lubricate it and what...
  15. Internal Squeaks and rattles!!!!!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Well its getting to the time of year when the temperature changes and all those noises appear! I am being driven bloody mental by the internal squeks and rattles! I know my car is 10 years old, but surely there must be some way to oil grease or spray something! Anyone got any ideas? Please...
  16. Spider window squeaks?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    There's a lot of rattles & squeaks from my Spider door/window area (on both sides) - but I realised recently that these noises are almost totally gone when the roof's down. To begin with I thought it was just the wind noise drowning them out, but after some experimenting and slower driving over...
  17. Oh those squeaks and rattles

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Ok guys should start by saying I love my 159. Its a special place to be, looks like nothing else and is pretty nice to drive. I can even forgive the p*ss poor fuel economy and tyre wear that makes my eyes water just thinking about the expense. My big gripe though is in all the squeaks and...
  18. RATTLES, SQUEAKS, NUTS n bolts

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I love my GT Cloverleaf. and I have the boot rattle:lol: and the fuse box rattles too, so I thought I would investigate. All the plastic trim in/on the boot hatch isn't securely screwed into place. The screws are tight, for sure, but they don't hold the trim properly. You can just pull it...
  19. How many rattles and squeaks is normal in a Spider?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just wondering what a 916 Spider would have been like as it left the showroom regards odd rattles here and there. Mine isn't too bad all in all other than when driving on cobbled streets when I get some rattles from the right rear somewhere in the hood compartment and also in the doors - the...
