Spider roof - hood failure
Two weeks ago, I had a problem putting the roof on my spider up. It was really very slow, and at one point I needed to give it a little manual assistance as it was clearly struggling to lift the roof. When it finally did shut, the car did not register that it was shut and refused to close the windows completely as it should at the end of a closing cycle.
The following morning, I phoned my local dealer who very kindly agreed to look at it the same day even though they were fully booked. However, when I got into the car to take it to the dealer, the roof worked perfectly.
I cancelled the trip to the dealer, and since then have had the roof down three of four times with no problem. Yesterday however, the problem returned. It was slightly different this time, as the windows did close when the roof went up, but the car beeped at me to tell me the roof wasn't shut, and when closing the door the window didn't shut properly.
But again, the next day it worked fine (although it bucketed down overnight and I had a wet seat the next day ... fortunately I have leather seats so no damage!!).
Has anyone had a similar experience or know what could be wrong? I guess it's going to be difficult for the garage to diagnose if it working when they have it.
