  1. 1st and 2nd gear syncro - can it get better by itself?

    Alfa Giulietta
    This is quite frustrating: Week 1 with the Giulietta was great but only 1 out of every 10 attempts to get first gear when stationary was successfull. it was that bad. I took it to the dealer on Saturday but as i started to demostrate the problem to the technician it started to engage...
  2. Gearbox syncro out of Warrenty.

    Alfa Giulietta
    For those afflicted with the 1st gear syncro issue, would Alfa be willing to repair this under warrenty on a car that is now out of warrenty? My newly aquired G has this but it only affects it when stationary going into first. I have found the knack to getting it engaged. I will bring it up...
  3. So what are the symptoms of the syncro issue

    Alfa Giulietta
    I have a feeling I may be suffering the fabled syncro issue, sometimes when stopping at lights or in heavy traffic I'm unable to get into first from neutral and once or twice i've not been able to go from second to first and it can be a bit embarrassing when you start holding up the traffic. Is...

  8. 166 6-speed manual syncro problem

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Afternoon chaps. I thought i'd just tell you about the first niggle with my 166 3.0 Super. The syncro on 4th is getting worn, so I'm getting a quote for repair from my local specialist (cloverleaf in Gloucester). The labour is going to be about £500 and to recondition the box is going to be...
  9. 33 1.7 16v syncro's.

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Hi, just got myself a mark3 33 1.7 16v. Gear box has a slight prob though!! think the syncro's are gone cos changing down at speed creates a pretty bad crunching noise in all gears. Have heard that it can get a bit messy getting to the box, does the engine have to come out? Is it easy to change...
