Notchy gear selector on 145

Why is my gear selector notchy, then seems select ok? Is this common, and is there a fix. Reverse seems to take some time to select, and then grinds?

New clutch time?

Thanks in advance

I get this on my 146 sometimes. I think its the synchro-mesh starting to go (or have I just made that word up?) Getting it into reverse is a royal pain somedays, double clutching seems to allow it to go in without crunching though.

Yeah, seems to be a boxer wear problem...
Mine was a little cranky, but nothing a quick let-off of the clutch wouldn't resolve.
Maybe try replacing the gearbox oil and see if that improves matters.

It won't... It's a feature. just remember to pump the pedal once then shift in to reverse. Although... is there any wearing parts on the linkage? I know it's a cable but is there any wearable parts ?

Mine can be stubborn too. Just let the clutch out and give it a little rev to clear its throat and it's alright. Other times its as smooth as a very smooth thing, Alfa Romeo's huh?
