How I solved my roof issue
So, My spider is 2010.
For the last couple of months I had problem during closing cycle of the operation.
It failed at the point where the rear deck needs to lock into its place just before the cycle completes and the rear end of the roof gets locked on top of the deck.
At the beginning it was unnoticeable.
Hitting the roof switch twice, resolved the problem and the closing cycle was completed successfully.
However, After a while,This solution failed to work as well.
I had to reset the ECU by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes.
Since i live in Israel and this car is highly rear, I couldn't find anyone who is familiar with this problems.
I had to go to the Alfa dealer and expect a huge bill.
A few hours after I got the car in, I got a call from them saying that it needs lubrication.
Knock wood, It works ever since.
They did tell me that the cause is a low usage of the system (I used it once \ twice a month).
Hope this information might be helpful for you.
