Sorry to bring this up again as I have mentioned briefly in previous posts, some minor problems I’m having with the Spider.
They have now got worse, I would like to know if anybody else has them at all or whether my car seems to be an exception!
The seat has a gentle ‘rock’ to it, nothing too major but it is noticeable under breaking/setting off. In addition to this the driver’s seat at least, has a very annoying creak. It seems to be on the right side of the seat towards the back. I have tried moving the seat slightly to solve the problem, but this has not made a difference so far. This morning I got into the car to find a screw and a washer loose by the side of the seat- not a good sign and I hope it’s not related!
I am also hearing a lot of rattling from the passenger side of the dashboard and from what appears to be the back of the hood when closed. This is gradually getting worse and is becoming quite irritating. I don’t mind wind noise etc, but this is a constant rattling from the back and has to be drowned out by the radio. I have had a look and can’t picture where exactly it is coming from (it may even be the box the roof is stored in when closed).
Aside from these (quite annoying) irritants, the car is lovely and brings a smile to my face every time I get in it. Perhaps these are all part of the Alfa “traits” I have heard about, but being my first Alfa I cannot compare.
