gearlever

  1. "Clunk" from the gearlever

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Had a quick search, seems this is a new one. When I shift into 1st, I can hear and feel a hard metallic "clunk" and the lever comes to a soild, hard stop, with a little notchy feel just as it goes into 1st. Please tell me that this is not a sign of impending doom!! From memory this was not...
  2. Engine (?) noise through gearlever

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I'm getting engine noise being transmitted back into the cabin via the gearlever on my 1.9 jtdm, if I hold the gearlever the noise is reduced. Has anyone else experienced this, and how did you fix it?
  3. 166 new gearlever gaitor

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi folks, Just spent 30 minutes sewing a new gearlever gaiter to the gaiter holder. I purchased it form a well known on-line auction site, £9.99 delivered. I did e-mail them first to confirm it would fit my 166, they said "we sell exact replacements", this means shape, size, holes for stitching...
  4. Brera V6 Q4 - rattly gearlever

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My gearlever rattles when in 3rd gear and accelerating reasonably hard. It generally happens before everything is fully warmed up. Seems to be something in or touching the lever rather than in the gearknob or down in the gearbox. Anyone come across this or got any ideas what and where to...
  5. Vibration through gearlever

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  6. Alfa 166 gearlever stuck

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I have a 166 3.0 (1999) which now has the gearlever stuck in park and it wont budge. Managed to remove the gaitor to allow access to the override which puts the car into what feels like 3rd gear only ( I can also get reverse ) so it's driveable. Any ideas what's happened . . ? Anybody had...
  7. V6 GTV gearlever stiff left to right across neutral

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi anyone know what needs adjusting or lubricating to solve this please? Gear selection is fine but the gear lever is stiff from far left to middle so finding third is the biggest problem. All gears select ok, up and down(forward & back) movement is absolutly fine. I have 2 other V6 GTVs which...
  8. Gearlever reverse mechanism

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'm looking for the gearlever reverse mechanism - the plastic collar that slides up the gearlever - on my 1997 Spider V6. As shown in the picture, I was sold another as a replacement from (I think) a GTV which is not at all similar. Can anyone tell me which models have the same mechanism as...

  11. Floppy gearlever 145 1.6 boxer

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Hi The gearlever on my 1.6 boxer has become quite floppy. It still changes gear OK, but there is a lot of play in the lever, even when you're in gear. Anyone know if there's any adjustment or other fix for this? Thanks in advance.
  12. New gearlever knob and gate?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi! I am new here having just bought a 99 spider (To be picked up next week). I was wondering as I am a huge fan of the gearbox in the ferrrari 355 if it is possible to get a similar setup for the alfa gtv/spider. Basically it is an oversized crome ball gearknob that fits wonderfully in the...
