  2. Gear lever linkages

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Anyone had any experience with tightening the gear lever linkages on 159 1.9 JTDM lusso. Lever feels a bit clunky!! Wondered if it could be adjusted or will it require new bushings?:)
  3. Slack/loose/rattly/wobbly gear stick...gear linkages?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Have searched every thread I can find on similar issues. There is significant play in my gear stick when in and out of gear. Changed the top hat bushes last week (which were actually not too bad) but the play continues. Other thread have suggested a bush in the linkage at the bottom of...
  4. 156 1.9 JTDm Gear Linkages

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My local specialist has advised the rubber bushes in the gear linkages aren't the problem and that it needs further investigation. Having just spent £1200, I'm wondering if there's anything I can do myself! Symptoms are the gearstick not returning to neutral without a 'tap' in the right...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all, My 147 has decided it doesn't like rain and thus has decided to snap the plastic arm that the metal rod from one fixed linkage to the next. Having read a few previous posts this looks like a common problem of weak plastic design. It must have gone at some other point as there has...

    Donalds Alfa Romeo
    As you know on the 147 the wiper linkages have a tendancy to break. Now when you order a replacement or get a second hand one it will more than likely break again! BUT not all people know or are failed to be told by there dealership that alfa have superceeded the old linkage to a number of new...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I am going to attempt to change my gear selector plate to solve the "sticky" gear lever problem as mentioned in many posts here. Has anyone done this and can they give me some advice on removing the two connectors (onto the gear change rods). Looks like some complicated clip arrangement...
