There are likely to be 2 cables as well, the thinnest of which is probably accidental reverse selection inhibit.

Unfortunately the cheap Porter book I'm looking at doesn't really help much beyond that.. there's not enough detail in the small fuzzy diagrams, or instructions for setting up or adjustment.

I'm still undecided if it was worth the 2 UKP..[:0]

don't think theres an "accidental reverse inhibit" isn't it lift-up reverse?

try a haynes manual

Met Cognac 99 Brava 100 HSX, wish it'd clean itself!

push-down reverse, impossible to select by accident.

Spirito di Punto | M-reg 55SX, black, 5dr. Clear repeaters. Remote locking fitted, no light confirmation yet though - need relay fitted

Take it back.

AFAIK all (manual) Puntos are at least 5 speed - some are 6.

I'm new here as well.

If the car is still under warranty, get it replaced under that.

is there any nosie's coming from the gearbox or has it leaked. i blew my gear box and i only blew 1st and reverse gears but the others worked fine. you might have blown a diff. and when you got the car did you not test drive it? you should always go through the gears to check for any whinning nosies you might have a dodgy gear box not uncommon for a fiat!! you can't take it back if you signed a recipet saying sold as seen. plus i think for £25 you could have got the AA out to check it!! would have saved you alot of money before you bought the car. gear box rebuild is expensive if you have blow a diff its a matter of time before the rest of them go

Damn right im good in bed i can sleep for days!!!! :)
