From the picture you have provided, it appears you are seeing condensation deposited on the car. When water vapor in the warm air, meets with a cold surface, water droplets form through the natural process of condensation. This happens more readily in humid climates. It is likely the finish, or color, of your car makes it more noticeable. Look closely at ...

You just undo it with a suitable size spanner or socket, probably 6, 7 or 8mm. It looks to be one of the few without a screwdriver slot or phillips screw head. If it is rounded or seized, I have found the most time-effective solution is to "crush" the screw-locking mechanism which releases the strap... Trying to lever up the strap to get cutters etc in the ...

I think that's called an Oeticker clamp, and it's an inexpensive "one-time-use-only" band of steel that is slightly larger than the OD of the hose, with a little squared-off loop on one section. It is "clamped" at the factory with a pair of pliers (or perhaps an automated machine) that looks something like barb wire cutting pliers. It's inexpensive and has ...

With help of a friend who has some axle-stands we got the front of the car in the air to get good access underneath. The plastic protective bottom-cover under the engine was dripping with diesel. So we unscrewed it and cleaned it using brake-cleaner. We ...

Take it to a car wash and get as much as possible off. Be very careful not to soak things like the alternator.

I know this an old question, but as I had it myself on my 159 and on my new Giulia as well... It is most likely wind-noise coming through the weather-seals at the top of one of the doors. Only noticeable when driving fast enough and (in some cases) may go away when driving even faster. You can verify this by pressing some fingers into various spots on the ...

In practice, this means that you have to replace at least the piston rings or perhaps the entire bottom end ...
