  1. Vibration noise from gear stick/lever

    Milano/75 (1985-1993)
    Dear All, I just wanted to ask if any of you have or experienced this issue. When I'm driving my 91' 75 twinspark, around 2000-2500 RPM, there is a repetitive noise coming from the gear stick/gear lever in 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears. I feel some vibration too. When I place my hand on the gear knob...
  2. 164 front end clonk

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, Have been having a clonk from the front end of a 1995 24v 3.0 164, UK spec. It mostly happened on steering inputs but not always. No play in front suspension bushes and even changed the engine mounts - were shot anyway. Think narrowed it down to the front strut lower bearing so took the...
  3. Spider Grinding

    Gearbox, Transaxle, Differential & Propshaft
    Hey Folks, Finally got my engine running on my 86 Spider! After some around the block confidence drives, ive noticed some strange grinding. I thought that it may be my front passenger wheel bearing (checked working), but fear it may be something worse. I hear a grind / rattle when turning sharp...
  4. Knocking noise in reverse, Milano

    Gearbox, Transaxle, Differential & Propshaft
    So my new to me 1987 Milano has a knocking noise in reverse gear, and only in reverse gear. While driving in reverse you hear a sound that sounds like a playing card held against the spokes of a bicycle wheel. If you lift off the gas while the car is still rolling backwards the sound becomes...

  6. engine banging

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, For the first 30 seconds or so after morning first start there is an intermittent impact 'bang' from the belt side of the engine. It's not regular and clears after the short period but is quite heavy. Suspect the power steering pump, it moves at least 1cm in-out on its axis but not sure...
  7. Alfetta Noises....

    Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    Hi all, I have a 1977 Alfetta and every now and then a funny noise comes from the front drive shaft region. It sounds like very light metal on metal contact. Sometimes this noise will last for a long time and other times it will only last for a few seconds. The noise is quite loud, it can be...
  8. Whining noise from back of driver's seat '93 spider

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hi, new to the forum. Read some of the posts and find everybody's very helpful. Just bought a '93 Spider with auto transmission. Noticed a whining or whistling noise from behind driver's seat and it gets louder when you depress the accelerator, stops (or barely noticeable) when you release the...
  9. Strange engine noise

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Yesterday a strange noise started coming from my engine. After driving around 30 or 40 miles (no noise) and going on some dusty roads (I don't think this would matter) I started the car up and the engine sounded rougher and less smooth. Its difficult to describe, but its not a clicking or...
