New 147 a few minor problems. Advice required please.
Hi, I have purchased a 2002 147 2.0 twinspark. I am new to Alfa's and would like some advice on a couple of issues. I have tried the search facility, but have not found anything specific
1. The gear lever does not self centre when in neutral and when changing from 1st to 2nd all is fine but it causes issues when changing from 2nd to 3rd. It is awkward and the lever needs to be physically pulled across towards 3rd. it's not a smooth change. Is this normal or is there something I could do to address this.
2. When the car was purchased the front cats where rattling. Is the job of replacing these difficult. I'm not adverse to a bit of home mechanics.
Thanks in anticipation.
