Hi, so I've had the gear box external cover off and cleaned off the swarf, although it transpired that there wasn't any, and so unsurprisingly fourth is still very hard to get. The clutch was replaced about 18 moths ago and the whole system was completely flushed, and charged with new fluid only six months ago.
So why is fourth still such a
pig to get in to? Every other gear is a smooth as a brand new car.
I suspect linkages, but it seems odd on just the one gear. Anyone any clues or experience of similar.
Incidentally the Alfa Workshop guid on swarf cleaning is excellent except that it does not warn you that a large mug full of gearbox oil is going to come tumbling out when you remove the outer plate... beautiful oil stain on the drive now (so it's a good job I live alone!!!!)
