spider hood.

when i bought my 01 spider my electric hood didnt work,coming to the conclusion it was the motor that operates the flap catches with some brute force to get it to twist i successfully broke the spindle coming out of the motor.this is one that notoriously fails, the one that most owners clump with a hammer to get it to work.this motor sits in the cubbly hole centrally.my motor is fine but where do i get the spindle?? am i the only spider owner with a good working motor but with a broken spindle!!Today was the first day for a month or so ive taken my spider out for a drive and i realise why i like it so much even though at any time it has at least two things are wrong with it apart from a broken hood motor!!
