    Just got back from the local tyre fitters after we were told 3 of the tyres on the GT were down to 1mm tread at its service on Monday. Looking at the front 2 when they were removed they had worn surprisingly evenly! However, the rear tyre was markedly more worn on the outside than the inside...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    This evening I decided to check the tyre tread depth on my 2006 GT because I knew the two rear tyres were nearing replacement time. When using my tread gauge I noticed that there was a little more room under the arch on the passenger side so I got the tape measure out. My rear driver and front...

    I'd appreciate some opinions. The offside front wheel of my 156 has worn excessively on the inside shoulder. Now I know the 156 tends to wear tyres on the inside shoulder but this is quite extreme ( the last front o/s tyre wore to the extent that a wire came out whilst the outside edge of the...

    I'm not going to like the answer to this I know, but I'd rather have an idea about how bad the news is before I get to the garage. I have an 04 plate 156 JTD, 1.9l remapped. I have noticed for some time now, allbeit infrequently, that there would be a bit of a stutter in the power delivery as I...
  5. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Good day, I have just bought my spider V6 and I am busy getting it sorted - I have noticed that the car does not sit level. The front right is about 15mm lower than the left. I have also got some knocks in the front suspension. I am planning to check the lower control arms and drop links. The...

    Did anyone notice this on theirs? I've been driving today quite a lot in the old town, and old town has stoneroads, and xenons ware blinking and shaking a lot. What might be the problem for that? I've checked the screws which secure the headlights and they seem tight.
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I bought my GTV 4 months ago with the above symptons & after 3 local specialists unable to resolve,(new MAF,clean out throttle body,change belts to check timing etc) I took it to; JCS(Kegworth) Station Road, Kegworth, Derby, DE74 2FR TEL; 01509 672523 (Its actually located in North...
  8. Alfa GTA
    Just changed the rear brake pads as one pad was completely shot and quite different wear rates across the 4 pads. Caliper pin/sliders are free, handbrake cables are returning but the pad ears were a very tight fit in the stainless steel plates. Obviously I cleaned it all up including where the...

    Looking at my tyres today, I saw that the tyres are wearing badly on the inside edge.:cry: Has anybody else had this problem and how did you fix it. Is it new bushes or something more expensive? And if it is the bushes, how many are there and is it an easy job to do?
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    as of yesterday my car began squeaking when going over larger bumps etc, it came on all of a sudden i've tried WD-40ing all the rubbers etc and mde no difference, how ever when looking at the car from behind it appears slightly uneven, the passenger side rear wheel has a bigger gap between the...
  11. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    why are my tyres wearing unevenly? they were all fitted and tracked within the last year and probably haven't even done 4k yet the inner sides are as bald as a coot. the outer rims look fairly newish yet my other half had a very near miss tonight when this happened... I'm assuming the other...
  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Recently the idle has become very uneven ranging from the normal 700 up to 1300 odd rpm. The service is up to date and the cam belt and variator were changed 6 months ago, Any clues? ta
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Guys, I realised there is a pinned thread about this subject but thought others might be interested in the outcome of my case with Alfa Romeo UK who my local dealer (Picadilly) suggested I take the case up with as they were happy the car (2009 159 1.9TI) had been set up within the tolerances...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys, I have a really weird braking issue. I think its coming from the rear brakes! Basically when braking at reasonably slow speeds the car kinda jerks as if the brakes are griping then releasing then gripping then releasing until you come to a stop. When i brake at high speeds it...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Since I got mt 156 1.8 ts, the economy has been terrible. It has been on a diagnostics computer which showed no fault other than running rich. I have since found that the thermostat was stuck open. On replacing, the temperature now comes up to 90 (it barely moveds before), but after being...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Noticed my front tyre was totally shot on inside edge today so got it changed. Strange thing is the wear on the outer edge was much much less. Took it to get the tracking done but they said that it was fine. I always run with recomended 2.7 bar - could that be causing an issue? what do you guys...
  17. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    This may not be a problem.. but when I got my car out of the garage last night the left front was higher than the right front. Yes the car is on level ground. There is about one inch difference in the distance between the top of the wheel and the top of the wheel arch in the left and right front...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello! Im really not sure if this is considered as fairly normal after a suspension change but thought I would check with you guys. I changed my standard suspension for a supersport kit (possibly a mistake!) about 6-8 weeks ago and noticed an uneven drop height at each of the wheels. I...
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    For about the last 6 months there has been a slight knocking noise from the rear of my 156. It isn't speed related, sounds the same at 30 as it does at 70 - although you can only hear it at 30 if the car is driven on a new piece of road which doesn't generate much road noise. The car was in an...
  20. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, My car is in for a service and apparently the front drivers side wheel is wearing unevenly. I know that the rear passenger side spring has been leaking for a couple of months but been waiting till it was due its service+MOT. The tyres are new (few thousand miles) and Goodyear F1s. My...
