Re: 2.2 159 Gear change issue
Hi, my sept 06 159 sw jtd has been in desira norwich since 10th Sept with a suspect gearbox problem. First to second was clonky since I had it from perrys amersham at 9,000mls 18 months ago, now 30,000mls of mixed urban and A road (not many Mways here). But on the evening of the 9th Sept the box stiffened and it emitted some intermittent nasty noises that sounded to me very serious metal on metal grinding. This was happening clutch in, clutch out, in drive and in neutral as I recall. Engine noise/performance as normal. I was able to coax it to desira, and they listened, said dont drive it, leave it with us for a look. It was 1 week out of the alfa warranty so there is a third party assessor needed to inspect this creates a delay. Initially the suspect was the dmf, but its now the box apparently. I'm a bit worried now.
