  2. Water Pump Swap - US or UK/EU

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi all. Background, I have a 1987 S3 Spider. US import to UK LHD. I had a water pump fitted a while back but not run her since. Came to fit the fan back on recently and realised the pump fitted didn’t allow the fan to turn due to the car being fitted with AC. The pump fitted was from...

    My Giuliettas sprung a leak and I cant figure out how the water is getting in and making its way to where it ends up. Its been back to the dealership who replaced the outer door/window seal but it hasnt helped so was wondering if anyone here might have the answer before I go back to the...
  5. Giulietta boot spoiler holding rain water

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi I have a 16 plate Giulietta which is holding rain water around the boot spoiler area, as I open the boot (after heavy rain) water runs down the inside where the gas struts are fitted and I can actually hear the water sloshing about which I think is coming in through the too boot spoiler this...
  6. Water on side windows from windscreen

    Alfa Stelvio
    As any Stelvio owner must have noticed by now, any water on the windscreen streams off onto the drivers side door window and obscures vision to the mirror if it is closed, or soaks said driver if you happen to have the window open. Anyone had any success with redirecting water or making it...
  7. Water in gearbox? Eh?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm in the process of changing the n/s driveshaft (147 1.9 16v JTDM, 6 speed), because the inner tripod joint has about 1mm lateral movement and is rattling just like a knackered top wishbone balljoint over every bump. So drain the gearbox oil... and about 15ml of water preceded 2L of...
  8. sealant on water pump gasket

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'm fitting a new water pump whilst I have the engine out (V6). The old pump had quite a lot of black sealant on the gaskets. My understanding was that there shouldn't be a need for sealant if the faces are good, and they appear to be now that I have cleaned them up. So I'm wondering what to do...
  9. Low mileage water pump replacement

    Alfa MiTo
    Hello everyone. I’ve been browsing the forums the last couple of weeks since I was gathering information before getting my Mito. I’m the new happy owner of a single owner 2011 Mito 1.4 155hp with just under 32000km (20k miles). As it has been a low mileage car, some things haven’t been replaced...
  10. 1998 Spider Phase1 - water problem!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All My Spider has sprung a leak so just looking for some thoughts on what the problem could be please. After a 20 minutes drive yesterday, I then found a puddle of water in the well behind the drivers seat which I had to soak up - hopefully the carpet will be fine once dried out.. There was...
  11. Tailgate water on my head!

    Alfa Stelvio
    Starting to get pretty annoyed with water running out the bottom of the tailgate and landing on my head/back of my neck on the Stelvio when i put things in the boot. Was looking at it yesterday between storms and I think I can see the issue. The black strip that surrounds the bottom only has 3...
  12. Water gathering

    Alfa Giulietta
    So really just something I've picked and wondering if anybody has had similar experiences, 1 design fault I've picked up on with the Guilietta is that when it's absolutely chucked it down with rain, it gathers in the roof spoiler, the part where the roof curves down and then the lips goes...
  13. water cooled oil cooler

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    has anyone thought about fitting one? Perhaps one from a VW Corrado / Golf?
  14. 1.9 16V JTD Timing Belt and Water Pump change sockets and tools

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys! Pardon me if this has been asked before, I've searched the internet for an answer but I couldn't find one. I'm planning to change my timing belt, serpentine belt and water pump on my 2005 GT JTD. With the power of AutoData YouTube and a lot of reading I've got the step by step...
  15. Brera QV. Fuel, water and oil temp gauges dead.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The entire cluster is dead - so dead in fact that the fuel and water needles couldn't even be arsed to drop to zero. No illumination either. Checked the fuses (39, 42 and 49) just in case there's separate power to them, but they're fine. I'd also hoped that maybe fitting a new stereo a while...

  17. Turbo gauge and water leak

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, new to the forum just picked up a 1.9 159 and hoping you chaps can give me some advice please! So firstly, the turbo gauge when at idle sits at 0.2 boost not on zero. It seems to work when driving thought not sure if accuracy but will never sit back at zero which makes me wonder whether...
  18. MiTo Twinair - water from exhaust

    Alfa MiTo
    Mrs V’s recently acquired 2015 MiTo Twinair has developed a leak! Or to be precise, we’ve just noticed a trickle of water issuing from the front of the back box on the exhaust. On the couple of occasions it’s happened the car has either just been started and was sitting idling for a few minutes...
  19. Gyeon Wet Coat - Dreaded Water Spots

    Car Detailing
    Ok, so just tied Gyeons Wet Coat spray, firstly I was amazed at how quickly the spray adheres to the paint and the beading properties are best I’ve seen. Sadly, half way through washing my car the sun came out and I’m only assuming this has contributed to what now is a large amount of water...
  20. Water Leak in engine bay

    Alfa MiTo
    Have been experiencing some water loss- but haven't been able to see were-until came back to car, puddle underneath it, and water visible kinda where my poor arrow points to-seems to be from the front corner of the metal ----no oil in water, no scum in oil, exhaust gas seems normal. 1.4 engine...
