    Alfa Giulietta
    Hey all, My Giulietta 1.6 JTDM (2016) is coming up on 120,000km so timing belt etc is going to be done. I don't know when the gearbox oil interval is...doesn't seem to be one listed in the owners manual. Is 120,000km too early to do this job? Thanks!
  2. 156 TS engine and gearbox removal on sub-frame

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I couldn't find a "how to" for removal of 156 TS engine and gearbox on sub-frame. To lighten the load I removed the cylinder-head and pistons and might even remove crank for the same purpose. Is there anyway to do this without disturbing the steering rack? Is anyone able to provide a...

  5. Gearbox strip down, what do you think so far?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    The GTV gearbox had apparently been rebuilt previously but I didn’t have any other details so I thought it prudent to have a look before re fitting it. I’m not entirely sure what I’m looking for other than to say that with the case split there’s no sign of any obvious wear and the oil was clean...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello folks. My gearbox has been progressively getting worse over the last 3 or 4 months. It began by the gear stick not centring and then slight grinding going into 3rd gear from 2nd. It’s at the stage now where I can engage 3rd without grinding If I’m careful but now It’s jumping out of...
  7. 2.4 clutch rattle on engage & disengage in neutral

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, It has been a while, but a new noise has developed itself. I'm afraid it will be a clutch/DMF change but wanted to hear your opinions. There comes an awful noise from the front when i'm in neutral and engage and disengage my clutch. No noise when it's fully depressor or fully pressed...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, My car apparently has a 'gta' gearbox in. I've found the drain plug at the very rear of the box, but no obvious fill port, is this it? (just to the left of the mount) If not, where is it? Thanks Matt
  10. New clutch destroying gearbox?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, today I made quite a sad "discovery". Few weeks ago I had LSD fitted with general gearbox checking and installed CG motorsport stage 2 clutch kit as old one (std Valeo unit) was really bad. When box was going in the car everything was quite great inside (new all bearings, all synchros in...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi folks! First post here and a bit of a car newbie so please bear with me. I'm looking at buying a used Giulietta and came across a pretty nice spec 2013 Sportiva trim (1.4 petrol, 170bhp with a TCT).

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, does anyone know if I can use an actuator and gearbox from a 2003 156 on a 2002 147? I noticed that the selector shaft on the gearbox is different (I was planning to just swap the actuator over but it wont fit due to this). thanks, Andy
  13. GTV V6 2.0TB gearbox dipstick

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I was under the impression that all V6 GTVs have a dipstick for checking and refilling the gearbox/differential oil. I was looking for it, but all in vain. Can I get a clear answer whether the 2.0TB has a dipstick or it's all done under the car?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    My gearbox needs work, as it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep it engaged in reverse without popping out of gear. I could either go for a repair or attempt to source a secondhand replacement. If anyone knows of a secondhand unit please can you let me know. Otherwise can anyone...
