Alfa GT JTDM - Gearbox linkage. Can't select any gears!!!
After starting up the car, I could not select any gears at all. Gearstick could be moved like stirring some porridge
I'm not the most technical, but have managed to find the problem The threaded bar that connects the cable to the ball joint has pulled out of the nut on the cable. I can only get it screwed in about 2mm and it is not holding, so I think that part of the bar has sheared inside the nut, or it has pulled the threads. See photo, the black nut should be connected to the exposed bit of thread that is sticking out of ball joint.
Has anyone else had this problem? and how did you fix it? I assume a new cable/nut may be required, does anyone know the part no.s?
Thanks in anticipation
