Grinding noise and 2nd gear
Just joined the forum after getting my alfa back on the road after 4 years of SORN!
I would appreciate any advice or help offered to help me to solve a problem or two I have with a grinding noise and selecting second gear. I've read somewhere that the two issues may be linked.
The car makes a grinding / scraping noise as the car is travelling. It is not engine speed related as the noise gets worse as it the car goes faster but does not change in volume or pitch any any gear. The noise is worse turning right and disappears when turning left. Its not too bad from inside the car but i'm told it sounds quite bad from outside. The car does travel smoothly though.
The other issue is that I cannot select second gear either whilst running or stationary. I cannot select it with the engine off either.
Again any advice would be greatly appriciated.
Thanks in advance
