  1. Exhaust vibrating on rear Anti Roll Bar

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, just had my MOT done and told the mechanic it sounded like the exhaust was loose at the back somewhere as I can hear (and feel) it rapidly vibrating when driving, especially when pulling away. I expected that it needed new rubbers, however when the car was up on a lift, the mechanic invited...

    Alfa Giulia

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I changed the radiator on my 156 2.5 last night and then ran it stationary until the fan kicked in to make sure everything was working alright. I then turned the steering wheel and it was stiff, vibrating and making a whining noise. It was fine until last night. Any ideas as to what is after...
