Re: spider hood

Nope not had this one on either of my spiders - however I am sure that I have read a thread where it has occured before.

Do a search for hood problems and the thread may come up.

Re: spider hood

Yes had the same problem and car was returned to dealer for rectification. Turned out (from memory) to be a solenoid in the left hand actuator (which returns the flap you are talking about to its original position) which Budgens replaced. A job for the dealer I'm afraid!
