:rant: so after fixing my car battery problem..there's another issue..My gear stick has been very strange lately, actually it started long time ago but this problem is getting worse. so basically the gear stick goes all-over the place and its very to difficult to engage 2nd and reserve gear. I can feel that sometimes the gear stick gets back in the right place but if i shift into 1st or 3rd too hard it will go far too up and goes wrong again. I brought the car into my local alfa garage they say there's a metal piece that holds the gear cable has snapped. They have put in a plate and screws in an attempt to told it in place but its not quite working in my opinion. How much would that cost to change that and is it a difficult job?
