Alfa Romeo 147 Suspension Problems
We regularly get emails from customers stating that they can hear a dull banging coming from the suspension area, especially if the car is on rough terrain. While talking to our friends at Alfa they seem to think this is probably sue to a issue with the suspension arm. A solution to this problem (unfortunately is to replace the arm) – for best price on this item – (https://www.eurocarparts.com/suspension-arm-and-suspension-joints), if you need help or adivce fitting the arm, consider purchasing our official Alfa Romeo 147 repair manual.
Alfa Romeo 147 Rattling Sound
Another one of the many Alfa Romeo 147 Twin Spark Problems and a very common issue with the 147, is a rattling noise coming from the engine bay, especially from the petrol version of the car opposed to the diesel, in fact this noise can make the petrol model sound more like the diesel, this is probably due to a timing variator, as this is a very common part to fail. Again, unfortunately the best fix / work around for this problem is to replace the whole variator. Tip : if replacing this part it maybe work replacing the timing belt also, this can save you time and money in the long run.
