Stiff gear change on 159 1.9JTDm

Have lately noticed increasing stiffness and also a slight squeaking noise from the gearstick when I change from 1st to 2nd and from 3rd to 4th gear - most noticeable when engine is cold and goes away as it heats up. Car was serviced by AR dealer yesterday and I have been assured that the linkages and gearbox are fine. However, the squeak and stiffness is still there and it's slightly annoying

Anyone got a fix for this? Does it just need a top-up of gear oil? and if so is this something that would (should?) have been checked and topped-up if necessary during the service? any help/advice appreciated

My 159 gearbox is temperamental. Notchy and stiff one day, smooth and precise the next.

It's just an Alfa thing!
