Re: 156 selespeed gearbox oil

Sele system doesn't have a drain plug and only has a relatively small amount of hydraulic fluid, 0.7l iirc, sele reservoir is about half way back on the passenger side right by the wing, gearbox filler is on the front of the gearbox beside the reverse light switch and sele clutch speed sensor, drain plug is on the side of the gearbox accessible from the wheel arch, gearbox holds about 2.0l of oil....

hope this helps

Re: 156 selespeed gearbox oil

hello, when you mention the gearbox filler, is it the 10mm boilt that you unscrew to sill it up or the bolt that take a massive allen key? and you fill it up till it leaks out i take it?

Gearbox filler and drain plugs:

from DTE and real pic

No 1 is the filler plug: 12mm hex about half way up on the front side of the gearbox. Fill on a level surface and until the gearbox oil flows back out. It's SAE 75W90 IIRC. Fully synthetic (Tutela CS Synth is the Alfa recommended oil avail from dealer or mail-order from Shop4Parts).
