I've read somewhere on here that Alfa's can be de-rattled?

I've got severe rattles since I installed the stiffer H&R springs from the 2 door cards and from the rear door cards.

How do I stop this?

Oh - the clutch issue was sorted as there was "air" in the system? A simple bleed of the clutch system sorted this - but on my way back from Kimberley yesterday at 180km/h the clutch pedal became soft again, the faster I go the softer it becomes...:tut:

What could this be?I'm thinking I should just send the car in to some Alfa specialist to have it checked out...in town driving the clutch is stiff as I like it, but on open road in 5th gearf it becomes soft...it worries me that the ppl are not fixing the problem here...

any ideas -

Rattles?

Clutch?:cheese:

Sounds like it's your seatbelt tensioners, one of mine has and it rattles away all the time, need a new one I think and it was due to having a car seat on that seat. Do yu travel 4 up often?

I assume you do as there wouldn't really be a reason to buy a 5 door would there?

I also have it bad in terms of rattles, sigh. But the main reason is probably that the car is a code 3:(, still glad I have her though:thumbs:

The best and cheapest way to stop rattles in an Alfa is to sell it. As soon as you fix one rattle another one appears, or was always there but you just couldn't hear it because of the old rattle. My advice-turn up the radio:p
