alfa 147 stiff gear change


The gear change on my 2001 Alfa 147 was becoming very stiff -especially from2nd up to 3rd. on return from hols. when tthe car had not been used for 2 weeks it was really stiff - the garage suggested the gear cables were corroded - and have fitted new ones.

It is no better -in fact possibly worse as it is now really difficult to select 1st and to get from 3rd down to 2nd. - the garage are recommending changing the gearbox at horendous cost - does anyone have any other suggestions/similar experience?

Than you, MS alfa
