147 selespeed jammed in gear
Alfa 147 selspeed,the selespeed gearbox jammed in gear...problem occured whilst reversing out driveway and up a steep hill...attempted to select first gear,which display indicated however car would not move.Attempted to engage neutral,no response.car stuck in middle of road for three hours whilst alfa assist attempted to get the vehicle on a tow truck..which was proving a serious problem..well impossibilty...attempts were made by tow truck driver to move vehicle ie disconnecting battery,rocking the car,pulling the car from behind on winch..nothing stuck jammed middle of road...last attempt involved attaching winch to rear tow hook holding car whilst jacking up front left wheel in an attempt to relieve strain from the drive wheels success we had movement and full and normal operation!!! Can anyone shed light on what happened, if its common,any possible damage...etc etc....
