Well here's the story....
I had been getting the odd SSF (Selespeed System Failure) warning beeps. But only say once every couple of weeks.
Since the weekend this has raised to an alarmingly regular beeping and erroring.
On a drive up to Leeds on Friday night it got more frequent and as we got to Leeds the box stuck in 2nd.
On the way back, more of the same, stuck in 3rd at one point.
It doesnt matter what you are doing, you can be just tootling along in 5th gear at 70MPH and it just Beeps. So it isnt always in relation to a gearchange.
So I have called the Garage and she is in on Monday.
The Selespeed fluid (and indeed all fluids) have hardly moved. I have kept the oil topped up (the only fluid whcih went down).
I am now back in my Punto, which is making me appreciate just how amazing my 147 is
