Re: Where to identify transmission?
The car is in France: you missed out on a nice model, the 146 TS "Junior" is a sporty version for beginners: firmer suspensions, disk brakes front and back, + cute spoiler that's not too obvious.
mo4: Thanks for your input: the noise is not there if the car is coasting along in neutral, nor when it's parked. I was thinking of the main shaft bearings too, but the mechanic from alfa thought it could also be the gearbox. The gears still change really smoothly with no noise, so it can't be too bad inside. I actually found someone that reconditions these things (I thought they were almost extinct, bless their souls). If I drop the transmission to check the main shaft bearings, would you recommend getting the synchros and forks changed too?
PS: the frequency of the noise is about 1/2 of the rpm's of the wheels
