  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I have a 2001 Selespeed 156 which has developed a 'crunching' sound when changing gear. It doesn't do it on every change , just when going between 2nd and 3rd and 3rd to 4th.

    I have a 147 selespeed and on several occasions lately the car has got stuck in third gear in manual mode and the gearbox will not neutralise until you turn it off. If you try to put in gear after starting it stays in neutral, I have left the car for up to half an hour but you can't hear the...

    Hi I've have this ECU error regarding the clutch sensor position and followed the thread on how to adjust yourself. Whether I adjust the clutch rod all the way outward (I mean turning the 19mm bolt anti-clockwise) or inwards, the value in Alfadiag or FiatECU Scan does not change, always...

    Hi fellow Alfa owners, my poor sele is rather unwell again:(. The problem happens intermittently which is even more annoying to diagnose. waht happens is it will sometimes shift to a gear or two above but sometimes below, so far it seems like 3rd is the most hated! Heres a list of what Ive...

  13. General Alfa Discussion
    Sorry if this has been done to death but for what should you look for when test driving a selespeed to see if there are any existing faults ? Or is this a fools errand ? I have spoken to a few people about selespeeds, even read some threads here and the opinion is very much divided. My mate...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I know a lot of you already know this but I didn't so I've done a little research on the selespeed gearbox to find out what it does, as I've heard a lot of good and negative. Well Im pleased to say that what I found out made me feel better. Its derived directly from the Ferrari F1 gearbox, it...
