    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, I recently purchased a v6 156 (2001) and it's brilliant. One little niggle is that the pull up collar for getting into reverse is a bit stiff and the spring doesn't fully return it to the bottom position. Is there a known fix for this? Possibly some way to lubricate it? Look forward...

  14. AR 166 2.0TS 1999 - stiff gearshift problem

    Alfa 164 & 166
    While the engine is still cold I can engage and disengage 5th gear as smooth as on any car. After the engine has warmed up properly, about 15-20 minutes later things change drammatically. Engaging 5th gear feels like stirring into a box full of chunks of metal. Disengaging means I literally have...

  18. Stiff clutch and sloppy gear change

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The clutch on my v6 seems to be getting heavier so much so it's getting a ball ache to drive it around town. It's not slipping or anything and the bite point is around half way, so I dont believe it needs changing. Any ideas on what it may be? and is there an easy fix for someone who's not that...
