Re: 147 Gearbox / Clutch niggles
Alfas donít have synchronization on reverse gear. Its written somewhere in the car manual. You should put your car into neutral, release the clutch, than engage the clutch, wait 3 seconds with clutch engaged and then select reverse.
The 3 second waiting is described in the manual, the first part about releasing the clutch in neutral is my experience, and it helps for me. And move the gear lever into reverse slowly when you feel resistance. Yes, quick parking with Alfa is not easyÖ.
