    Hi, After some ideas about what is causing this problem.. When driving in a straight line if you hit say a pothole or bad uneven road surface as the back wheel hits the surface the backend of the car feels like it is trying to come round on you. On dry roads it's not that much of a problem...

    have a wobble from the steering wheel at 70 , goes away at slower speed think it might be wheel balance problem ?

    Hello all So my wee ti hasnt been well. Since I got the car serviced back in September (4 months ago), with new timing belt, waterpump and some electronics sorted (window switches, lights etc) the car still doesn't feel 100%. It still lacks the power I'd come to expect. While not a rocket...

    I need to use some wobble bolts for new wheels , I do have some but being tuner bolts for the slim bolt hole (20mm) the countersink washer on the bolts have got a little fatter i guess through being tightened over the years. My question is should i buy new ones (but on a tight budget) or do you...

    Hi I have a 156 1.8 TS from 1998 that wobbles/vibrate when accelerating 2000/3000 rpm and especialy when turning right. I checked everything and noticed that the 2 drive shafts dont have any play, the half shaft (extention of de right side that has a support bearing and that connects to the...

    My nearside door mirror glass seems to be wobbly. The faster I go (the faster the wind of course) the more it wobbles. At the speed limit it is not very helpful. It was a long time ago in the past that I had anything remotely to do with mirror glass on internally adjustable door mirrors...

    Hi All, Just replaced the passenger door lock on my spider relatively successfully, and noticed one small thing that I can't decide is normal or if I've done something... When closing the door the window seems to wobble quite a bit when shutting the door and before it auto closes to the seal...

    I've just come back from a run out in by face-lift model 916 Spider (Sept 04) and whilst driving the wheels would suddenly flick from side to side independently of the steering wheel - not enough to be dangerous, but unnerving nevertheless. It was particularly noticeable when accelerating away...

    Hello fellow Alfa lovers, got a bit of a weird one today, bought myself a 147 2.0 twinspark, looks great, used to drive great too, part from a front wheel bearing rumble..... anyhow, while I was planning to replace both front wheel bearings (only the drivers side had gone) I got all the wheels...

    degraded engine performance on Diesel 2.0L when accelerating with Revs "wobble" HI my Giulietta Diesel 2.0L seems to have an issue when trying to accelerate hard in 5th or 6th gear. Previously this was not a problem, but recently I noticed that as i put the accelerator pedal down, the Revs...

    This morning the boot decided not to open - using fob and release button. Had to take my stuff out for uni by folding seats down! Also my rear light on the boot doesn't work either this has been like this for a while. I've now noticed that the latch of the boot is very wobbly, has a lot of...

    Pictures of the size/fitment attached. I know the car is 4x98 but was gonna buy some 'wobble bolts' which allow a few mm of difference. Wondering if they'll go on OK as they're 9j wide (9 inch). Any advice welcome. Cheers! Oh and its a MITO 1.4 95BHP LUSSO

    Hi all. Recently my Mito Cloverleaf has had an intermittent wobble when accelerating, I have just had the wheels balanced and aligned and it still happens. Any ideas please? Cheers Ray

    If you own an old car - no matter who made it - you need to expect the odd problem if you use it as a daily runner. While these problems are frustrating, they are often a bit baffling if - like me - you're an automotive dunce and can't work out the link between cause and effect. You scratch...

    Got my baby back from the garage after having the passenger top arm and track rod changed and a new tyre on the drivers side. Drove home yesterday and parked her up. Woke up this morning with the plan of going to newcastle for some shopping, got onto the A19 and put my foot down to find all...

    Hi Sorry for advance if I have spelling mistakes I fit on my Mito a new set of rims: 17"x7.5J 4x100. The original is 4x98 as you know. Any bad stories on putting wobble bolts? I heard a bad story that the bolts can cut because of the pressure. My driving is often aggressively and my engine is...

    Bought a used 159 limited edition 9 months ago, high mileage so expected some issues. Generally runs well, especially when cold, but as it warms up (after about 8 - 10 miles) two problems appear: 1. Noticeable chassis creak in background, not necessarily worse over bumps but when you pull up...

    Hi, the drivers side wing mirror on my Ti wobbles. Every time is shut the door it moves around and whilst driving there is a constant jiggle. It's not the glass but the unit. Has anyone got an easy fix or can describe how to cure?
