squeaky

  1. Alfa GTA
    Hi, is there an easy fix for this. My side bolster is rubbing on the armrest no matter what position the armrest or seat is in, I am slightly tubby framed but nothing excessive but Its doing my head in and the only solution I found so far is those cheap sticky pads which help to stop furniture...

    Evening all, started with a little squeak when turning right at slow speeds on the way to work today. On the way home tonight, it sounds squeaky from the front suspension while just going straight, plus the steering wheel. Will get it to hospital as soon as poss but any ideas or cost? Fluid...

    A spider we are looking at has very squeaky door trim, even audible with the roof down at 40mph... It seems to come from the piece that looks like an arm rest or the top of a storage compartment (except it doesn't seem to open) Is this something that is easy to fix? Thanks Sent from my...

    Hi I've had my new 2016 pre-reg Giulietta since mid December and have an annoying squeak coming from the clutch when I press it. It's already been 'fixed' once by Mangoletsi service, which solved the problem for a few weeks and now it's back. Ideally looking for something to try to resolve it...

    Hi everyone, one of the issues I'm going to be looking into on my GTV soon is squeaky steering... Before anyone suggests I have mice (they are in any case confined to our loft :biglaugh:) I do genuinely have an issue here with 'dry' steering which often lets out a squeak when I turn the steering...

    Hi all Am in the middle of a roadtrip and tomorrow is the last leg of the journey, 600km before tg He car is getting put into storage At the start of the trip going over severe speed bumps would cause a sound from the front left (LHD car) but over the course of the trip it has developed into...

    My 2007 2.4 has recently started squeeking from the right hand side of the engine as you look into the bonnet. It dies down after a few seconds. Cambelt change is not due yet. Weather here has been really hot so not a damp related issue. Should I be worried that something is about to let go?

    Do you find you have more squeaks and creaks from the suspension, and more brake noise during prolonged dry weather?

    It's started! Definite squeaky/creak from the front end when crossing speed humps! Had top arms powerflexed and new genuine lower arms last August by Loz down south, so I 'm pretty confident that everything is in good nick still.. and wouldn't you know it all the squeaking went away when I...

    Hi All, We have a 147ti that has developed a squeaky / creaky rear end, similar to to noise you get from the upper arms on the front suspension. Is there a common fault with these and a part that needs to be replaced to stop it? Thanks David Sent from my SM-T710 using Tapatalk

    Morning chaps, hope you're all good. Another small issue with our 147, the passenger side rear seat clasp is squeaking over bumps in the road when the seat back is clipped in place. As a temp fix I have been tilting it forward slightly when not in use. Any permanent fixes people have used to...

    Hi AlfaOwner. I noticed my glove box seems to rattle and creak often when driving over bumpy surfaces. For the moment i've slightly moved and tightened the catch for the glove box door itself so it sits tighter and sprayed WD-40 silicone on it and around the hinges which has helped noticeably...

    Hi all, My spider has developed which I believe to be squeaky breaks. It only stops when the break peddle is pressed when moving and continues when I coast in neutral. Frequency and pitch varies with speed. I have had the local garage loosen the hand break which improved the condition very...

    I recently posted about a slipping clutch and it turned out to be academic...slipping was of no issue when I couldn't change gear! Anyway, got the car back today with the new clutch fitted and the difference is incredible to before it went. The pedal is actually loose and smooth and so on...

    Hi all, I have a rather loud and embarrassing clutch pedal squeak. It can be heard outside the car so I'm thinking its engine Bay Area. Where do I need to lube? Cheers MC

    Anyone else get loud squeaks after their 147 (or indeed any car) has been parked in the sun for a few hours? It seems to come from the boot or maybe a bit lower. Nothing wrong really but it's annoying and makes the car sound like it's in some disrepair. Any pressure points that could be oiled?

    147 is disgracing itself by sounding like a 1968 vauxhall viva. So i've ordered two new upper wishbones and intend to drill and tap grease nipples into them so that i can periodically pump them through. I will do the uppers first then see if i can figure out if i can do the lowers and the arb...

    Hi, I don't know the words in English for this but with every speed bump there is a squeaky(?), cracky sound. When I go and stand in the doorstand and jump up and down to make the car bump a little I hear it too. The car is from 2011 and only has 26.000 KMS. What could be the problem? Can...
