  1. 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...

  3. Wet, cold feet on turning left

    Alfa Giulia
    I may have a condensation issue with my Aircon. Whenever I turn sharp left half around an egg cup full of water pours onto my left foot. It's quite refreshing but it's not expected behaviour. Car is booked in with thames in Slough for an investigation. I will update here with information once...
  4. Soaking wet rear foot wells

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello all, hope all is well, I have a 159 2.2 jts with soaking rear foot wells, I don’t have a sunroof and I’ve checked the drainage holes under the scuttle panel which are clear, just wondering if you guys have clue why this is happening, I don’t think it’s the aircon pipe either cause the car...
  5. Wet footwell

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The drivers footwell gets wet in heavy rain. I’ve cleared the drain holes under the scuttle panel but it’s still happening. I can feel it dripping off the back of the trim below the steering wheel. I initially thought it may he air con related and coming from that vent but it’s definitely...
  6. Tyre Warning Light on in wet then off

    Alfa Giulia
    The last journey I had before this morning was Tuesday night, when there was really heavy rainfall and flooding. I did go through a huge puddle. Not above the tyres deep but more than a splash. About 10 minutes after doing that the tyre pressure warning came on, and warned me the front were...
  7. Best tyres for wet grip?

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi All, I have a 2012 1.6 diesel Mito on standard 17 inch alloys. Currently have Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres fitted which I ordered after reading a lot of positive reviews. In the dry I have no qualms - great grip and no issues. Living on the west coast of Scotland means it rains. A lot...
  8. 147 wet footwell after trying all suggestions - any ideas?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    147, LHD. It only fills with water on the passenger site, aka where in your RHD cars is the drivers seat. It happens when it rains, car is stationary. What I did: Clean under the scuttle panel. Refitted both wheelarch bungs. Small bunges near the hinges of the doors, refitted. Poured some...
  9. Wet carpets

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 159 passenger side carpets are soaking wet, I have cleared the drain outlets below the windscreen scuttle but water still coming in. Any ideas what to check next??? I know it's a bit drastic but what about drilling a couple of drain holes near the outer skin of the doors??
  10. How to remove rear trim panel? Wet seat belt!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I have a 2007 Brera and the drivers seat belt is wet after it has rained. Ive seen a few posts about this and there is no sign of any damp or wetness on any of the roof lining, carpets or interior trim, no water in the rear trim pocket also. My plan is to remove the side panel under the...
  11. Wet 156 passenger floor

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The passenger carpet & floor of my 2005 156 1.9 JTD are soaking. Any ideas what's causing this? There has been a lot of rain recently up here & where I've been driving. I dried them off as best I could the other day but they're wet again. Getting a bit desperate - starting to create an odour...
  12. Wet seat belt

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Left the car standing out in pouring rain yesterday. When I picked up my mate he complained the seat belt was wet. Seemed to be the bit that was behind the B-Post cover or maybe the bit drawn off the reel. So anyone got any idea how water can get behind the B-post trim but not wet the carpet?
  13. 147 wet drivers carpet

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I had noticed a smell of mold on my 147 once on the summer and a slightly damp drivers floor mat (after a slightly rainy day from what I realized now), but it got away very quick due to the heat so I didn't research it any more, and I didn't have any more problems until recently. Few weeks ago...
  14. Some water, leakage, wet around air intake area

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have noticed few times something wet around air intake area, on the hose where maf sensor is and before throttle body. Every time before it was very small wet area, but recently my brother told me he saw oil in pavement right below the place where i see leakage, and yesterday my car was in...
  15. Wet (soaking) front passenger footwell

    Alfa GTA
    I have a saturated front passenger footwell current, really disappointing as she covered over 600 miles without any real issues and I was in great comfort and not tired at either end. So I removed the scuttle to check drain hole into engine bay, area was free of water and the hole clear. I...
  16. Wet air filter

    Alfa Giulietta
    Took the G for a service today and was told that the air filter was wet when it came off. Is the compartment which holds the filter supposed to be watertight?
  17. Mito poor handling, bumps, wet.

    Alfa MiTo
    Good evening everyone! Long time lurker, but I don't get round to posting very often. I'm hoping you guys can give me some advice. :) I have a bit of a long story, but I think the background info may be useful. I've had my 2010 1.3 jtdm for two years now. In January, I came off the road in...
  18. Wet carpet, door sealant fix with photos

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Some time ago, when I just bought my 159, I noticed the carpet underneath the driver seat was wet. After some more rain (which happens often here…) the carpet underneath all 4 seats where wet. Previous owner always parked it inside the garage so it was not wet when I bought it. After some...
  19. Wet passenger footwell

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Guys - some advice please. My Bella has been locked away in the garage for the last month, so all nice and dry. However the passenger footwell is pretty sodden with a greasy fluid. Any ideas?? This has happened before but and it is becoming a real pain having to keep drying it out. Particularly...
  20. Wet Footwell - Please not Again!!!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Every time I post in this excellent forum it's for the same reason - we carpets and water ingress. I had a long standing problem with significant water in my drivers footwell that eventually turned out to be coming from the windscreen. I had the screen replaced after it got cracked by a stray...
