Permenant Solution to a Spider Roof Problem
I got one of my local engineers (also an alfa enthusiast) to make me a replacement gear that causes the spider roof to fail. As you all know the motor fails to release the hatches that hold the lid down. As you also know, the motor fails due to the low quality gear inside the motor wearing out and breaking. (Pull the little motor apart and you'll see what I'm talking about)
Well, he's made me gear out high quality / engineers grade plastic (the best there is) 3 weeks ago and it works without the hitch. I've been putting the roof up and down several times a day to test this before I post this up.
He's made few more of those as I've told him that there may be people of the forum who might be interested.
So if you are interested to loose the hammer and enjoy the sunshine without the fear of roof failure, let me hear you. The more you order, the lower the price, i guess. The gear will be shipped from Brisbane, Australia, which is not a problem due to size/weight.
Let me know what you think.
