Hi Mike,

Guest Alfa Romeo in Solihull state Examiner may help with the problem. The car is 6 years old now and they insist a cam belt change is due. With a service it's a cool £750... I've done 15k miles since last service.
The gear can jump out in low gears when on the move. Once when parked, I could select no gear at all. After 2 hours and moving it back and forward and praying, it finally selected gear and I could leave B&Q followed home by a helpful but somewhat bemused AA man.
I will check level of fluid on the right of engine to see if actuator is leaking. Guest say if it is, £1,000 to £2,500 will be the damage to my summer for new actuator.
Any thoughts will be very much appreciated.

Regards, Jim

Rather than use Guests who can be very expensive try & get the car to one of the independents around I use WAD in Wolverhampton it's a bit of a trek but Willy really does know what he is doing & has the examiner system.
It does sound like a lack of hydraulic pressure in the system check the fluid 1st which should be done with the ignition on engine not running if this is ok then the examiner is the way to go
