FIAT BRAVO Noises and other little probs

Hello everyone. I recently bought a used bravo(3 months ago) a 2008 150 tjet from a main fiat dealer. Car has been great (apart from fuel consuption....eeek) but it has few problems. First of all brakes squeak a lot especially when they are wet or damp (like very early in the morning or after raining) and i can hear sometimes like a metal grinding noise (its not bad its very subtle and not everytime).

Thanks everybody for the hints. I did the usual checks (seats properly clipped in place...no objects etc etc) but i couldnt find anything wrong. The seat definitely need to be looked at cause it really feels like its not held in place even if it is...the feeling is just too horrible every now and then a clunk ....weird. Now the car squeak even when driving very slowly..like 5 mph...so i guess its either

FIAT BRAVO Clunky 1-2 Gear change and Whining Sound

Dear bravo Experts Greetings from Singapore Great informative forum you guys have here. Would greatly appreciate the experts opinion on this problem I have. Took delivery of a new 2007 bravo 150 T-jet with about 600 km on the clock. However I find that the gear change from 1-2 seems rather clunky (i.e. you can actually hear the gearslinkages at work) the other gears seem fine. Secondly i hear a whining

FIAT BRAVO Bravo cornering noise

Hey Guys Bought a 2008 bravo T-Jet few in August this year. I have noticed a clunk noise when I turn left around a corner (doesnt do it turning right.... weird I know). Took it to a mechanic he didnt know what was causing it. Has anyone else had this problem before... or does anyone know what it could be Had a quick search of the forums didnt find anything similar. Thanks for any help

Possibly a broken spring OR the spring is dislocated moving on the strut spring saddle plate. Locate which side of the car the noise is coming from. Left middle or right and go from there. (Im assuming the noise comes from the front.) Another possibility is a noisy siezed loose drop link ball joint. With noises like this then really speculation by me others is not very helpful. The only only solution

Checked the springs all look ok. Appear to be seated correctly. Ive narrowed the noise down to front right of the car near the pedals (RHD). I can actually feel the clunk when Im touching the pedals. Ill have a good look at it on the weekend and do the swivel plate idea. Thanks for the info I realise its difficult to diagnose car problems with vague descriptions like a clunk noise

The mechanic did try to check the Engine mounts by parking the car putting it in 1st gear open the hood and pushing the car in the front to see if he could provoke the clunky noise in that way. We couldnt hear anything... I hear the clunky sound loudest when changing to 3rd gear. I have a feeling that the sound either comes from the clutch or gearbox.

By clunk do you mean a sort of very quick crunching noise like if you grind your gears

We couldnt hear anything... . I doubt you could diagnose an engine mount fault that way. The power of your engine inducing the sympton is far greater than the mechanic pushing the front of the car So............. ENGINE MOUNTS

mate It is a fiat not a Mercedes fiats make noises there is a higher level of NVH (noise Vibration Harshness) than other cars you may have drivenpassengered in I gave a colleague a lift the other day and she remaked that the car sounded broken she was referring to the drivetrain noise at low speed. He is used to BMW and Aston Martin. Stop worrying about it turn up the stereo or fit a noisy air filter and enjoy cainy1989 liked this post

FIAT BRAVO knocking noise from steering (possible trim issue)

Hi My wifes bravo 120 M-jet has developed a strange clunk when the steering wheel straightens from full lock. It seems to be coming from just behind the trim (plasticy noise no feel through steering wheel). Anybody else experienced this is it worth a trip to the dealers (25 miles away). Thanks in Advance.

FIAT BRAVA 182 clunk clunk noise

hi all we have a 1.6 brava its on a t plate but ive had 2 tyres fitted to the front for mot when you drive in a straight line passange side middle of car i get clunk clunk sound like cv this does not happen when you turn left or right. am i right in to suspect inner cv or is there any thing else i should be looking for as a man at a fiat breaker yard said somthing about frontsubframe mounts which lost me thanks for any advise given

Your post is a bit confusing... are you saying that the problem started when you had the new tyres fitted If so then it should have nothing to do with CV joints or subframes unless something got damaged or fitted incorrectly... Cant comment on the CV joint theory its possible that on an older car they can go but I dont think its a common fault (at least not on fiatforum). The most likely and usual

hi further looking checked all joints and bushes no movement jacked car up so both drive wheels clear of ground drove car in all gears so no weight on wheels no un-normal noise. so lowerd car back down went for short drive and after a while the clunk clunk sound returned but it comes and goes but if cv it would do it all the time so im now wondring is there a bearing or sort of thing where the shaft fits in to the gear box all advice thanks inadvance many thanks shaun

You could always consider the gearbox diff obviously the diff works differently when you turn a corner compared to driving straight ahead. The clunk could indicate somethink moving from side-to-side this may not happen when turning because the loading is different. On an older car checking or ideally replacing the gearbox oil is generally worthwhile and can help to identify or fix problems.

sounds very much like the good old rear gearbox mount just do an image search on google for fiat brava rear gearbox mount... very common fault on bravas and bravos if its coming from central area somewhere near shall we say slightly leftof the gearstick it will be the mount for the above mentioned there are threads about it too on here peice of cake to replace too.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Clunk Noise

When I have the passenger side window closed fully and I close the door..upon impact the door makes a clunk noise instead of the traditional thud. However when the window is open an inch or more and the door is closed there is no noise - just how it should sound Does anyone have any idea what the heck is causing this It has been on-going for months and have now had enough of it

Have you checked at the hinge that the door is on securely and there are no issues there sounds like something is out of alignment. Have you installed marea handles or something Could be something moved.

sounds like play on the central window runner. wedge some cardboard inbetween the glass and the door (on the inside) and then try it again if the clunk is gone then play on the runner is the problem.

Hinges etc are okay and yes it does have Marea handles. Thing is its strange it should only happen if the window is open less than an inch or fully closed - not otherwise Hmm have also just tried the cardboard approach but still has the same symptoms The noise it makes is a sort of...vibrating clunk of a noise - I recorded the sound of it hoping maybe I can stick it on here so it could help diagnose the problem...but dont think I can upload sound here

Mwahahaha I found it (well a friend did - but Im taking the credit) Pulling the plastic bit off the dorcard back and looking at the handle area it was a bit of the locking mechanism...there should be a bolt holding it in place...looks like one of the previous owners shaved it off (when installing marea handles maybe) and had stuck it together with adhesive which has obviously failed over the years...so when i put it in place (not used adhesive yet) no more noise

FIAT BRAVO Clunking and slight hesitation on acceleration

2.0 bravo Sport When accelerating and changing from 1st to 2nd there is an intermittent hesitation followed by a noise which sounds like its coming from the transmission has anyone experienced anything similair

Originally Posted by cardinalbiggles 2.0 bravo Sport When accelerating and changing from 1st to 2nd there is an intermittent hesitation followed by a noise which sounds like its coming from the transmission has anyone experienced anything similair nothing on mine mate.. you experienced any problems with your DPF juddering and losing power when under strain

Well I took my car in again today to have the ARB link replaced but when they checked it everything was OK. Upon further inspection they noticed that the exhaust heatshield around the fuel tank was significantly bend and they decided this was the cause of the noise. I cant see how this would cause a solid clunking noise that appeared to come from the drivers side front wheel but I couldnt convince

cheers adapters came today so once I get the correct bolts and spigots Ill get it all fitted up. Hallelujah for work bonus . The ride height is okayish for where I live tho I smacked the underside really hard today so gonna have to watch for any leaks and pay more attention. Got too complacent then SMACK. Horrid noise think I got away with it this time There will also soon be another lowered bravo

FIAT BRAVO I Knocking noise when I brake

I recently changed all my brakes pads at 30000km. Since then I get a singular knock noise when I brake and slow down to anything below 10kph. Im not sure whether it is from the front or the rear brakes. The dealer said that they dont have clue what it is and to drive it as normal. Anyone knows what this might be

craig my does exactly the same get a bit of a clunk just before stopping around 10mph my pads where changed about 5k ago they where just the cheap allied nippon pads as I had sod all money at the time mine seems to be more from the passenger side though

Same here with regards to the cheap pads because of no cash. In all fairness it stopps great just the clunk is frustrating. Ive noticed now that i get a click when i apply the brakes then a clunk as i start to lift my foot off the pedal anything from 30 mph and below Wierdly i dont get anything if i break hard or aggressivley.

FIAT BRAVO II loud gearbox noise on 09 models onwords

hi i test drove a 09 barvo 1.4 t-jet sport yesterday and all the time i was driving it i could here a quite loud noise comming from what i thought was the turbo (it was a loud whining noise) at low and high speeds in all gears sales ma agreed with me so sent a mechanic out in the car he sed some thing wasnt right the car is still under warranty so sent it across to Arnold Clarks fiat garage other side

Thread res As you know I am swithering about getting rid of clunky. One major issue is the gearbox whine which is now very apparent in 5th and 6th under light loads. It is not noticable when accelerating and very faint in other gears. So does this sound like gearbox bearings If so is it possible to get a gearbox reconditioned and is this advisable If not does anyone have a rough cost for a new box

FIAT BRAVA 182 RATTLE AND CLUNK

I own a fiat brava 1.6 16v P reg and all was running fine until one day i noticed that there was a distinct rattle coming from the engine. It seems to be coming from near the timing belt and only is audible at low revs but is very loud (similar noise to a diesel engine) also there is a clunk coming from the gearbox when idling (probably not related) and just had a timing belt kit fitted which reduced

Hi my first post i have been toying with the idea of buying a 2005 leon FR for a few weeks now but put off by a few things like the leaky door seals i have just came across the bravo multjet 150 sport which i have been reading about they both have similar performance and fuel economy. What im asking is what niggly problems does the multijets have a need to be aware of and why do u prefer these over the Leon Thanks great forum Dave

FIAT BRAVA 182 Click Clunk from drivers front wheel

Does anyone have experience of this problem to point me in the right direction I was getting two clunks from my drivers front wheel every time i set off after braking to a complete stop and sometimes it would also go click click click with wheel rotation. I thought it was the brake pads sticking. So I striped the brake down cleaned and re-greased pads today. Now the double clunk from standing has gone

FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo Issues

First introductions been into Alfa and Lancia for some time however daughters first car gives me an opportunity to revisit my youth (er right) as I had many a fiat 127 Strada Tipo etc. Wifes car is a 145 so not in unfamiliar territory but the bravo is so much more accessable. I fix all my own Alfas but the bravo has me a little stumped 1) uneven idle and injector light on probably the lambda as everything

been on a diagnostic but the owner gave up when it did not report a fault which makes me think lambda as they often do not report. I also need to re-assess the noise there is a noticable clunk when letting the clutch up and a lot of chatter in neutral I think the gearbox bearing may be shot feels similar to when my Uno went the same way (input shaft) and I see it seems to be a weakness on the bravo

FIAT BRAVO Gear Change Issues

FIAT BRAVO Calling all T-Jet Sport 150 owners

Having an argument with my local garage about my gearbox which feels like it is rubbinggrinding when I change gear so I need some feedback from other owners When you change gear is it a smooth motion or do you feel like you have to force the gear stick into position Do you feel any rubbinggrinding when you do it Any noises at all Thanks for any help you can give The garage is trying to tell me that

bought mine in March - smooth gears... However when changing gears i often hear a clunk noise.... went to the dealer and his mechanic agreed that the clunk was a bit loud for a brand new car... we checked it on another sport they had ...same clunk sound... so i guess THATs normal ....otherwise smooth changes.

FIAT BRAVO Stiff gears

just thought id see if anybody else was suffering with really stiff gear change a few days ago when it was really cold I was so bad it was hard to tell what gear you were going in - no feel at all which resulted in a few badly chosen gears - got a lot better now it has warmed up a bit but this cant be normal

The regular metallic clunkping noise wasnt what I thought it was. The drivers seat was not latched in properly and after latching in when braking suddenly the noise disappeared. The ESR and hill hold still decides to disable itself now and again (and the cruise control does not work) and today I noticed that the brake lights are permanently on so theres clearly a problem somewhere....probably with
