Has anyone had the quite frustrating problem of very very stiff gear selection in cold weather??? Woke up this frosty morning and took half an hour of faffing about before I could crunch the gears in. Points to note:

- Model is a GT Blackline 1.9 JTD 57 reg.
- Gears seem to select ok with engine off (obviously an issue when getting from A to B)!
- Car seems to be 'ok' in warmer weather, though gears have always been a bit clunky.
- In this past year I've spent money on a master cylinder, slave cylinder, 2 x new clutches and a line hydraulic valve, all to no avail.

Any help gratefully received, or it could well be the end of the love affair! :cry:

change oil of gear box? Alfa says life time filling, but after 80.000km it's in bad condition. Just changed mine while changing the clutch, much better now, even in cold weather.

Thanks for the tip mrcudi. I'm due to take it back to the garage soon and I'll ask the question - seems to be a few threads running about the clutch/gearbox at the moment!
