Alfa 147

Alfa 147 stiff gear selector

I have not long owned a 2002 Alfa 147 lusso in black, very nice car all round but one thing that is spoiling the drive is a really stiff gear stick/selector.

2nd to 3rd is the worst!

very hard to move the stick from side to side even if the engine is running or not.

the car had done 102,000 miles and has only done 4,000 miles since April this year, been sat on a four court!

People say its the bushes on the selector plate, but when i do get the stick centre there is excessive movment from the stick with out selecting any gear, which would point to the selector box needs changing?

Any help or adivice would be great help.

Is it just one part or more?
