Had a look a tidy 51 plate 147 2.0l locally today. One thing that put me of was the gear stick had a lot of sideways play through the gears. Is this due to a wore linkage or a sign of something more severe?
Its prob the links by the gear box. They may have been popped off to do a clutch change maybe and now they are a bit loose. There should def not be lots of sidways play. I can imagine you could pick up the bits from autolusso for not to much.
