Stiffy 156 Gearbox?

Hi all,

My 2000 156 2.0TS has suddenly started feeling stiff getting into gear. It always goes in, but frequently (not always) needs a good push to get it in (snigger). It seems most noticable in 1st and 2nd. I have had the car for about 5000 miles (it has covered 26000 total), and the first 4000 have been fine. Any suggestions as to a simple fix for a non-mechanic? It is still covered by an Alfa warantee, so should I be paying them a visit to look at it?

Have your dealer check the transmission oil, in case there's any leakage. Otherwise it may be the gear stick itself which can be adjusted for 'play' and 'engagement.' I had mine adjusted when the car was quite new, it had slight difficulties getting into 2nd and 4th at times. It's been fine since. wink
