Alfa Spider 2.2

Hi Seasider - did this cure the fault? My Spider is in the garage again for a couple of days while they try once more to get to the bottom of the random "Hood operation not complete" alarm that comes up. I'm not holding my breath!

yeah touch wood I've had no failures to date, the dealer also had another spider in at the time that had the same problem and so the technician could demonstrate the problem, as unless you have someone with you you cant see if the flaps are moving in sinc with each other !

Around a month ago my roof actually closed onto the deck but then continued to open again (2 or 3 inches) then stopped leaving no seal and both windows stuck down.

The garage have had the car now for two weeks andthey have not been able to clear the issue at present despite a new motor and solenoids.

They are attempting to get the AR tech back there for the second time this afternoon but I am not happy at all and will again be in contact with AR UK as I have already had several issues with the servicemanager and his attitude in DF Cardiff.
