    My 3.2 Q4 Spider sat on the drive from September until two weeks ago. When it was revived the battery was dead, but a couple of days alternating between regular and repair charges with my NOCO Genius charger seemed to have done the trick. While doing a service we found a small amount of oil...

    Hello all , re the M32 gearbox .Recently I get whining mostly noticeable in 4th gear (but no movement in the gearstick ) so assuming its the M32 bearing rollers issue and it will eventually fail. My query is will a gearbox oil change help prolong the time to the bearing failing ? My 159 1.9JTDM...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a 147 1.9 120HP with a 5 speed gearbox but I feel like it could really use an extra gear. How difficult would it be to put in a 6 speed one from a 16v? I'm guessing it should be straightforward since the engines are basically the same? Any other modifications which would have to be made...

    I'm in the process of changing the n/s driveshaft (147 1.9 16v JTDM, 6 speed), because the inner tripod joint has about 1mm lateral movement and is rattling just like a knackered top wishbone balljoint over every bump. So drain the gearbox oil... and about 15ml of water preceded 2L of...

    Can anyone tell me what the name/number is the for 5-speed gearbox fitted to the 156 Twin Spark? I haven't been able to find it anywhere, but perhaps I'm just not using the correct search terms - or maybe it actually doesn't have a name/number???

    Does anybody know where I can get the plastic bit that holds the gear box gaiter up against the gear knob itself? I only want that part and i can only seem to find ones that come with the gear knob.
  20. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hello! My gearbox on my Alfa is dead. I can drive it, but it's a nightmare that I can't describe in english language. Sooo, I need a new one. A "new one" means that in my country I have a lot of Alfa's 166 for parts, but not any 2.0 turbo, or 2.5, or 3.0. So, I can fit a 2.4JTD one?
