  1. Strange rattle in the suspension or steering

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I've been trying to find the cause of a strange solid-sounding rattle coming from the driver's side suspension or steering. I hear it only when coming to a slow stop...often on a road that has just very minor filled cracks in the asphalt..doesn't seem rough enough to provoke rattling. Today, I...
  2. Front rattle at slow speed

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    My '82 Spider has a rattle heard front left and felt a little through the steering when I am coming to a slow stop. I replaced all the tie rods, control arms and bushings last year. Had the alignment done, and nothing noticed then. I'm thinking it must be the steering gear or something...

  5. Loud rattling coming from inside my center muffler

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I had my center muffler and rear replaced in May '08 with an ANSA center muffer (AR1245) and the ANSA dual tip. Now there's an awful rattling that sounds like it's coming from inside the center muffler. Has anyone experienced this before with this part? I put the car up on my ramps and checked...
