Alfa Romeo GT JTD 6sp ... problems with gearbox linkage maybe? and a few other bits.

Hello Guys,

It will go into a gear perfect, but it does not glide into the gears.
It need guidance with a little bit of force to move in the spaces between 1-2 (N) then to move to the next space of 3-4 (N)and then to move to the next space of 5-6 (N).
It feels notchy.
If I put the selector to the N space between 1-2 it will stay there, and so on... for the other two spaces 3-4 (N) and 5-6 (N)

I suspect it is the linkage..., is thre I way I can check it?

Also it says water in diesel ... ( I assume by changing the diesel filter and put some additive in the tank it will sort this out.)
Do I need to clear any faults afterwards?

Hi again

Change the diesel filter on the bulkhead.

Have a read of the link for the bush issue in the gear linkage.

No fault clearing needed, repair and enjoy.
