Wave MK2 147 JTDm Gear Problems

Hi all, first post and a 1 week alfa owner. Love the car, but have an issue with it which I see is well reported on here with the gears.

Basically, it's the usual problem of the stick not self centering and it being very difficult in the gear changes themselves - I know there's thread after thread on here about it but I can't seem to find anything specific to my engine and box.

I have a 57 plate 147 Sport 1.9jtdm with a 5 speed box, and have been told that the usual remedy of fitting a new 'gear selector plate' won't fix this as it's a different assembly altogether on the diesels. All the threads i've found the solutions on are for petrols, I even mistakenly bought the 2 plastic bushes until I was told that the diesels don't have them in their linkages!

I'm not very technical minded, and was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction on where I go from here..(in laymans terms!) What do I need and how do I resolve?
