Help with sourcing parts for my 159
Long story short, the gear linkage on my Alfa 159 popped out of place whilst I was driving yesterday (the end in the engine bay). After close inspection it seems that this loose gear linkage has been an issue previously as there was some metal wire holding the gear linkage in place which eventually became loose.
Can I replace the ends of the gear linkage without having to replace the whole thing? It looks as though the end can be removed. If so, where can I buy this part? If you guys are unsure of which part I'm referring to, I'll try getting a picture of it once I'm home.
Whilst I was at it I noticed a few hoses in the surrounding area need replacing as they're leaking oil. Where can I buy the hoses?
I'm aware that Fiat supply Alfa parts and that the engine in the 159 is the same engine as the 1.9 Vauxhall Vectra's so would I be right in thinking that the gear linkage can be supplied from Fiat and the hoses from Vauxhall?
I've only had the car for 3 weeks and it's my first Alfa so apologies if this has been covered, I tried searching but couldn't find the answer I'm looking for.
