Re: HELP!! Spider roof closure hook/claw
I had the same problem, except my hook/claw dropped off never to be seen again. The first agent I phoned told me the same 'rubbish', as in it's not available as a spare and I have to buy a whole new roof!!!
I tried a couple of dealers and eventually found one that could trace the hook/claw as a spare part. Apparently most dealers have never stocked it and are unaware that it is a spare part. I suggest phoning around until you find an agent that knows what they are talking about. According to Alffisimo in Boksburg (Just outside Johannesburg) the claw comes as a complete unit as in, the handle one would pull to release the hook, the block the hook attaches to and the hook itself. Expensive but still better than buying a complete roof.
