Roof alignment North East/Yorkshire

My roof is catching on my roll hoops and I think it is causing intermittent problems when it opens (doesn't complete opening cycle) anyone know of a good soft top engineer in the North East or Yorkshire?

You'll be lucky .

I couldn't find anyone crazy enough to go anywhere near mine here in Lancashire - it finished up at an Alfa service agent who replaced one hoop. Been fine since.

Out of all the problems you can get with these roofs, this is probably the 'best' one to have!

If the roof stops moving at any point, keep your finger on the switch for a few seconds longer and then try manually moving the roof very slightly.
Then put your finger back on the button and the chances are it'll do its job.
In some instances, at least on mine, once the hood has detected that components are close to clashing, it stops moving.
A little manual intervention usually does the trick. It tokk me a long long time to discover this and a lot of money wasted on so called 'repairs' at the main stealers.
