    On my 147 both handbrake cable clips and screws have snapped, meaning that the cables are now just loosely dangling underneath the car. I've already had a go at fixing them back up, but the original mounts were welded onto a metal sheet right next to the fuel tank. The only way I could see to...

    Over the past month or so I'm noticing an odd plasticky rattling coming from behind me, but possibly low down as well. There's no knocking over bumps once properly on the move, it's just obvious at very low speeds. I've emptied out the boot and nothing under the floor seems to be moving or able...

    Morning all. I just went through a deep puddle on the A30 and pulled some plastic off from underneath passenger side, midway. Any ideas what it is? What it protects? Expensive to replace? Thank you in advance

    Was changing the rear boot badge today. When I got it off and cleared away the glue I noticed that there are couple of spots where scratches are down to metal. Why are these jobs never 10 mins? Anyway. Advice on how to proceed? Thought I'd like to just pop the new badge over and be done...

    Hi guys, the coin holder next to the steering wheel is loose on my mito. It seems like it's missing a spring or clip or something, everytime I pull away it opens by itself and I lose all my money that's kept in there. Any ideas what I'm missing?
  8. Introduce Yourself
    Hi all, My hobby is basically lying underneath my 156 thinking i can improve it with suspension kits and polyurethane bushes etc. For now i will probably be asking stupid questions about 156 clutch, timing belts etc but hopefully i learn and can be helpful to others in the near future

    People, I was driving my GQV 1.5 week old on a place near my house. where suddenly while "climbing" the small bump, with like 10km/h I felt a rough vibration like hummering the car somewhere. The problem is this is an uphill place and with this elevation (what ever it is called, excuse my...

    Hi guys, my ash tray spring is missing so the ash tray lid keep opening and closing by itself, being rather picky but it does get annoying. I did have the spring which was loose in the tray when I bought the car, it's impossible to fit the spring without getting access to underneath and I ended...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My new Brera is pretty much immaculate up top. I was therefore a little surprised to find the following when I got it up on the jack for the first time at the weekend: only a couple of the screws to hold thd underbelly plastic trim are present, the rest is being held on by zip ties the air...

    Hi I need to know what that black plastic strip is at the front of the car underneath between the two front wheels? It's very annoying as it keeps coming off when I go over speed bumps. I think I had it replaced in a previous Mito a few years back and it wasn't cheap. Thanks OAB
  13. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi everyone, as a few of you are aware I've been undergoing a revamp of my V6 engine bay over the winter months. I've now come across a problem I'm having difficulty solving and need some help to identify the solution. Since the rebuild of the top of the engine, the car has not moved I've just...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My friend took this picture today because he said the exhaust looked very dodgy. It is hanging a bit low and looks bent, do you think I should replace it asap, or is it just cosmetic? Also, does anyone know what the yellow stuff stuck on is? Many thanks.
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have an issue with oily stuff under the car, there is no dripping as such just seems quite damp with oil of sum kind. There are cables running under the car and its along there and seems to of spread out wide near to the edge of the car. At first i thought it was just moisture because the car...
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    The car is 159 2.4 2005-2007. As I said occasionaly Hill Holder and VPS warnings appear after I hit a tall road shaft right through the middle of the front end of the car. They appear like 1 time in 5-6 startups. Mostly on startup but sometimes while driving. The damages on the car from the hit...

    Hi all, I want to keep my GTV on the road and when I finished using it as my daily car (hopefully in the next 12 months) she will go back to being a weekend/occasional car. to that end I want to deal with some of the rustly bits underneath. Jacking points on the sills bent and rusty. Forward...

    Noticed lately that when the car is in low revs and I let out the clutch slowly that I get a rattling /buzzing type noise from underneath the centre of the car (159). If the heat sheild was loose would it make a noise like this? Pete
  20. Alfa 159, Brera & 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?
