Let me say for a rotten gear change, to go and repair this is a pig of a job , all for the sake of a very small plastic bush ------------ Only Alfa would manage something like this to go wrong , don't get me wrong , I love them!Im sure it will improve things on the gearchange front as it' s hellish at the moment
Only thing is having gone this length to remove the gearstick and components shear some four rusty bolts etc. and not replace the vertical bush which is also a puzzle to remove cause you have to to get the small bush out to replace. It seems a risk as although it doesn't have the play /wear that the side bush has its silly not to replace.
So if anyone can tell me or know if its replaceable then please let me know .
