  1. Auto box lever operation

    Alfa Giulia
    I've had my Guilia about a month now and just wondered are all auto boxes totally backwards? It's the first Auto I've ever owned myself but you push forwards to go in reverse and pull back to go forwards? Luckily it's been at very low speed but I have nearly gone through my fence, nearly hit a...
  2. Gt jts gear lever position

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Since having my car the gear lever has always been biased to the left. The gear shaft plastic bush was replaced which stopped it from being floppy and for good measure, I had new gear selector cables and new gear selector plate fitted. This made the gear lever nice and solid with a positive...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I have had a 159 for around 4 and half years ago. About 3 years ago it started to have that dash rattle behind the instrument binnacle when travelling over certain speeds and especially worse over certain road surfaces. I tried liberal dosing of the dash trim gaps with silicone...

    Hi, I have just picked up my first Alfa its a 147 2.0, I got it cheap as they where told it needs new gear sector cables. The AA has put a clip on for now, will it need whole new cables or can I get new parts and just replace the worn/broken bits? I think it the gear box end. Thanks Ed

  20. Gear lever wobbly AKA spoon in bucket.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My gear lever is like a spoon in a bucket with lots a lots of play in it. Is there a simple fix like a worn nylon bush if so which one is it so I can get more of a feel to my gear changes. Also does shortening the gear lever make much difference?
