Hi all, hope you guys can help. My Spiser has an electric roof and its being a sod. The catch to release the lid section that stows the roof isnt releasing. My roof folds up and then nothing. I had a look aroung and found the twisting mechanism that releases the catches. It appears that this mechansim for tightening and releasing the clables isnt working properly, any ideas??

Can't really help here, I'd recommend a stop at an Alfa dealer for them to perform a computer check. The only time I had a problem with the electric hood, it turned out to be a wire severed by the amp I installed in the cubby hole where the hood motors are... the Alfa guys found the fault immediately after they saw the fault readings on computer.
Ive just had the same problem myself Tarsey. I took it to a non-franchised alfa specialist who put the car on a diagnostics machine to make sure the microswithches where functioning correctly ( which they were) and then he tested the motor and it turns out this had broke. The Nylon gears inside had pretty much disintergrated. He fitted a new motor for me for £250! Job done!
