Hi, just a quick note. I have successfully stripped and rebuilt my Sele Actuator. No special tools, and a handful of o rings purchased from a Hydraulic equipment firm locally.

My Actuator had blown a seal on the right side blanking plate, and was squirting oil out under some considerable pressure. I took the actuator off with a view of replacing it, but on inspection it appeared easily repairable. stripped and replaced the o rings and reset it. Back on and bingo....no leaks and fully functioning.

Recon it'll go **** up in a week, but i'll keep you posted. :thumbs:

whilst i'm on. will the fiatECUscan reset the sele ecu? i'm undecided as to this one or Alfadiag?? i have an ELM327 usb connector so that's a big influence. Can you still get hold of Alfa Examiner?

Cheers.

AlfaDiag won't work with an ELM interface, so stick with FiatECUScan.
The free version will do for the Selespeed gearbox ECU too.

Hi, my selespeed 156 2.0 JTS 03 plate wont engage gears - my local garage says its electrical / a solenoid. Is this completely different to what you had? Would love to fix mine!

I have an old Sele actuator which i use for spare parts. I recon strip it test your solenoids and replace the broken one! whats the worst that can happen, its already busted, so it stays that way.....Or you fix it!

mine was a massive leak, but i tested the solenoids for good measure.

Hi, hope I can butt in here - my 147 sillyspeed wont engage any gear - can get second after lots of dicking around so I did that and drove all the way to the garage. Long period of time for diagnosis (not complaining - they were methodical). Seems the problem is in the "Robot Controller"??? What the heck is that? I read in another thread that it may be the acutator. Quote $4500NZ to replace - I cant believe the cost. Can get a 2nd hand part for $2k but even that just blows me away. If the robot is actually the actuator...can I service it myself - I'm pretty handy with autos and do most work myself but the modern electronics have got me stuffed. I've been told you cant fix them but heck, there has to be a way
