Difficulty engaging 6th gear
...yes, it does have a sixth gear
My problem is the same as described in http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa-147-156-andamp-gt/43466-156-v6-gear-selection.html#post614913 except that I have a GTV.
Does the solution (shaving plastic off the reverse inhibitor system) apply to the GTV?
I have no problem engaging fifth gear (or any other gear, reverse is easy too) but for sixth, I have to push hard to the right and it feels like it only just 'makes it' over there. I'm worried that one day I will push past the inhibitor and get reverse when I want 6th. I know from other six-speeds that it's supposed to be a soft and easy engagement.
