    Level light on then lost all gears

    Yes it is very tight at the actuator end, I’m not 100% sure as I dropped the whole subframe on mine. But to lower it you would still have to slide the box back from the torque tube (drive shafts disconnected) a good bit to clear the subframe that the box sits above. If it were me I’d go to drop...

    Broken coil spring

    To save a lot of hassle you could remove the strut of yourself and have a friendly local garage use their proper spring compressor and fit a new spring for a few quid. I have done this with a couple of shock lower bushes and gave them a tenner for helping

    STICKY SWITCHES DONE IN AN HOUR

    For a GS you can order the F430 ones they are the same, did this myself as the old ones lasted 14 years so can’t really complain.

    No F1 prime or startup

    Must be air in the clutch hydraulic line. There is a bleed nipple at the bell housing. Crack this open and bleed here while shifting 1st to neutral to activate clutch (assistant needed in the car with you under it) Make sure reservoir doesn’t drop too low to introduce any air, shift a few...

    That is quite a leak there. Have a look at Craig’s Waterman’s website, for gearbox removal as it’s part of the clutch job. It’s really useful and also explains a lot about the F1 system. http://craig-waterman.com/?p=286& Good luck, cheers Greg

    No F1 prime or startup

    No probs just open and close the door to run the pump then once your happy it’s run enough to purge any air close the screw and it should be fine.

    No F1 prime or startup

    Filler the reservoir up then open the bypass screw on the valve block before running the pump, this will dump any air back to the tank. I bled mine 3 years ago this way after a pump change and no issues since. Make sure you only touch the one marked below and close fully after.

    Level light on then lost all gears

    I’m pretty sure there just copper washers, so re annealing would be fine. To change the pipe or even find the leak I’d probably look to drop the gearbox as there is not much access. It isn’t as big a job as it sounds.

    Level light on then lost all gears

    Does a 3200 not have any hoses then?! But suppose you’re more worried about crank thrust washers! All jokes! All Maserati can be a pain

    Level light on then lost all gears

    That’s right above the drive shaft as well. On the other photo it is just visible behind handbrake cable

    Level light on then lost all gears

    No problem happy to help, there is one hose support on the subframe to hold the hoses clear, see attached pic it is just forward of the oil tank

    Alignment settings on my 2011 GT

    The coloured boxes being red on the report doesn’t mean the actual setting is wrong only the setting is outside of the minimum and maximum ranges set in the software when it was used.. The actual values of thrust / steering angle are good and toe looks about right. Need to see the recommended...

    Custom Exhaust Fabrication 4200 CC

    Here’s what I went for, one pair of cats removed as well as squashed pipe. Plus centre resonator replaced, back boxes standard. Sounds great

    Custom Exhaust Fabrication 4200 CC

    Not heard or used them but I’d stay away from custom exhaust jobs as some are very poorly put together and not worth the hassle. A proper one can be re sold when you change car to get some £££ back or maybe hold out for a decent branded used one.

    Level light on then lost all gears

    I’d remove the boot floor for a better inspection. There are loads of pipes for potential leaks, if leak is when running it could be one of the EV pipes from valve block to the actuator. You could also get it in axle stands and run it through the gears to pin point the leak. Also check the way...
