Thumbs Up 02 Alfa Romeo 147 1.6 gearstick wont centre


my 02 alfa romeo 147 1.6 gearstick dosnt centre and its very hard to get into 3rd gear, ive been told that it might be the bushes that need changed. I have bought the bushes and tried to see were they go but im puzzled cause im not great with cars so dont know what im looking for or where they go. Can anyone help me please with some picks or advice?

Thank you.

No probs. I just changed mine.

There is a guide flying around somewhere but i'll describe it.

Disconnect the battery. remove the battery and the tray underneath it, which will involve removal of the small fuse box and the air flow meter and pipes. Sounds hard, but more time consuming than actually difficult.
You can then see the gear linkages, the bushes go into the block that you can see.
Youre going to need to remove the cables that are attatched to the actuator arm. I squeezed together the parts of the rod end bearing thingys and removed them. unbolt the box bit, knock out the bush and replace with a big splodge of copperslip so that they dont go again!
Sounds like a PITA but its not that bad. I'll try and find that guide.

useful thread...
