    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Ive just recently re-fitted my engine after solving a rear main seal problem. Ive now got a funny sounding starter and squeel on startup. Please take a listen (look): Any ideas? Its a new geared-type starter which worked just fine before...
  2. rear wheel squeel

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    got a squeek / squeel from rear wheels of car, not both wheels at the same time. It's mainly on the drivers side and sometimes on the passenger. Thing is, it is never there until he car has been driven some miles first, as if needs to heat up first !! Thoughts / ideas would be appreciated...
  3. Fan-belt type squeel when pressing clutch

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, My 2.0 147 has developed a sound. Initially I thought it was the fanbelt slipping but it wasn't quite the same sound. I have since found that it happens if I rest my foot on the clutch (Not what I regularly do) and when I change gear. So it happens very early on as I engage the clutch...

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    I have a fan belt squeek from my 2.4 jtd Mjet. Normally I would have said fan belt but reading the threads on this forum could it be a tensione:eek:r or some sort?
  5. MiTo 95 Break Squeel

    Alfa MiTo
    I know there are various threads regarding break squeel and MiTos. However, I cannot find the specific answer I'm looking for. I took my 95BHP to the local dealership re break squeel. At first I was fobbed off with "It's grit". I stood my ground and said I will speak to Alfa UK about it. I was...

  8. Squeel from battery area in boot

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just recently bought my GTV and have noticed a high pitched squeel towards the rear of the car. I put my head inside the boot and it was clear it was coming from the section of the boot where the battery is located. It is similar to when you turn a tv on and you hear that high pitched noise...

  12. squeel piggy squeel

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    thought I'd post this here too from the spider forum, cos its great stuff for squeely brakes 'I found some stuff much better than copper grease - its made by Bendix (brake manufacturer) especially to prevent brake squeel. a bottle was £5, so not cheap, but even with notoriously squeely ferrodo...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I have just fitted grooved discs and ebc greenstuff pads to my 156 - the brakes are brilliant, and they are not even bedded in, I have only done 35 miles on them. The only problem is they are squeeling - really badly!!! It is worse than when your teacher used to drag her nails down the...
