  1. Gear Linkage Boot

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all. I'm trying to replace the gear linkage boot that covers some bits that sit on top of the gearbox (6 speed). I've undone everything as you can see, and even removed the whole insert piece but I'm unsure if it's very easy to take apart the whole mechanism. I see there is a cir-clip and a...

  4. Alfa 147 DIY Wiper Linkage Repair

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, After doing a Google search, it turns out that the wiper linkage on the right hand side of Alfa Romeo 147s is a particular weak spot. Rather that replace my broken wiper linkage with a new or second hand unit, I thought I’d have a go at repairing it. Following are the steps I used to...
  5. 159 sportswagon wiper Linkage and spindles and Rear Banana Arms

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I have a ALFA ROMEO 159 JTS Q4 LUSSO JTS Q4 LUSSO ESTATE 3195cc (2006) PETROL I'm smarting from replacing my subframe for the MOT and have discovered I need wiper linkage and spindles. The wiper still works but I think the spindle has been broken for a while because the wiper performance...
  6. Gear linkage / selector cables (Brera 2.2)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, On my Brera (S) 2.2, I've found that switching from 1st to 2nd is becoming increasingly difficult to engage. It's not that it slips out, it simply needs a fair amount of ooomph to shift the gear stick into position. Not such an issue for other gears although it's never been a particularly...
  7. Gear linkage cables too long.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi! I´ve been repairing my alfa 147 with the typical problem of a stiffy gear change. Everything was ok until the moment of connecting the wires to the gear selection plate ,when i went inside the car it results that the gear stick was completelly on the right, as it was always on 5th and...
  8. Wiper linkage balls and cups.....

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    My wipers failed halfway through my Irish touring hol which is a bit of a pain, thankfully the weather has been brilliant so no harm done yet. One of the balls had popped out off the linkage so it wasn't a biggie, however as its a bit loose it's probably going to happen again, I know you can buy...
  9. Wiper linkage repair

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Apologies that this has been covered before, but my 159's wiper linkage has gone wobbly on the driver's side, as seems to be fairly common. Although the Alfa garage I go to are good and I'd always trust them with anything vital, the price for a new linkage and fitting is stratospheric, and I...
  10. Right Wiper linkage snapped

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    With all the snow, the wiper started playing up. My fault for not clearing the snow from beneath the wiper but now the wiper wipes but sometimes goes all the way off the screen and down the drivers side door! Just taken a look at it and the right wiper linkage is snapped, I'd like to have a go...
  11. Wierd problem with Audi wiper linkage

    General Motoring Discussion
    My neighbour has just had to replace the wiper motor on his A6. Fine - no problem. Except that the wipers no longer sweep as far as they should! When the motor is at rest the motor crank is horizontal to the right and the wipers in the correct down position. But turn the motor on and when the...
  12. Broken gear linkage cable

    Alfa GTA
    Hi all, I took the gta in for an MOT the other day. The good news is it sailed through, the bad news is that when they tried to put it in gear (or so they tell me) and drive it out of the garage the gearstick was just floppy so wouldn't go into gear. The garage then refused to work on it...
  13. Alfetta GTV Gear Linkage - Bush Replacement

    Tuning & Upgrades
    I have tried to improve the amount of movement and sloppy feel on my 1983 Alfetta GTV by removing the worn plastic bush and replacing it with a needle barrel/roller bearing and adding needle thrust bearings on each side, it worked well. Very firm feel at the gear shift end now the only movement...
  14. Gear Linkage problem

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone, I was just driving back from work, and lost all the gears. The gear stick just wouldn't go into a gear. I looked under the bonnet and found that the gear linkage had popped off. See pics below. My problem is - how tight is the fit meant to be when i put it back on?? as it...

  16. Gear Lever Linkage problem?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guys, Not sure if anyone else has had this problem, but it's happened to be twice in 2 weeks and is scaring my GF from driving the car. What is happening is that at some point (not sure if it's me being too rough with the gearbox or something) the ball-joint is slipping out of the hole...

  18. Gear Linkage

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've recently removed the gearbox, so had the linkage apart at the gearbox end. Since putting it back together, the gearstick seems to have quite alot of lateral movement, and when you push the stick towards the passenger side, it seems to be tight and stick there, that is in gear or in neutral...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Had my black 156 JTD for a few months now and loving it. First ever diesel so was nervous but am v happy. However, the aircon stopped working so when it was in for a service they had a look and apparently part of the gear linkage has worn a hole in one of the aircon pipes! The garage is...
