GT 1.9 Diesel 3rd Gear Noise @ 120k miles

I have a 2005 55 GT diesel which has managed over 120,000 miles. The most recent problem is the difficulty and noise in selecting 3rd gear, (tend to avoid it now).

I have replaced the car already, but wondered whether to fix it first or let it go as is. It lookes the part - it has the 18" rims and great black leather, (passenger & back seats hardly been sat in). I am the second owner - Uk car.

I have no idea what it is worth - can anyone help me with a fix or know anyone who buys in Gt's to repair and resell?

Alfa Romeo GT Q2

It could be your syncro on it's way out.

I bought a GT with both third and forth gears smashed to bits, fifth and sixth closley following.

I opted to go for second hand box, but a rebuild would have cost similar money.

The syncro will cost shirt buttons, but the labour involved to renew it will make it an expensive job. You may as well throw a new clutch and slave cylinder in while your at it. It all adds up.

Your best bet may be just to stick it on eBay with the fault mentioned and let it find it's own value.
