hi paul, i have a very detailed cd bought off ebay about 2 years ago which gives step by step hood operation electrical workings and fault diag.This cd was "as used " by alfa dealer workshops. The last time i looked it was not to be seen but it only cost 2.99 and is great, it also helped me solve an abs problem after i rebuilt my spider following a hard front ender with wiring damage.If you cant get hold of it then i may be able to run off a copy.The cd in question is for alfa spider/gtv models incl facelift 03 onwards.To start with i would lubricate moving parts with silicone spray and whilst im unsure of your description of the point of failure are the cables adjusted correctly.Good luck.
