Spider Roof and Windows

Hi Guys,

So my second hand Spider (97) is a week old and already got a few problems but I don't mind because I love it so much.

Just thought i'd ask your advice on a few things, I hope all you experts can help a newbie like myself.

Firstly when I want to now take the roof up or down I have to use the emergency rope in the luggage compartment to undo the catch on the drivers side. The normal push buttons undo the passenger side, but not the driver side. I can hear the solenoid(?) clicking but it doesn't undo. Is this a common fault, and what is the problem?

Secondly, the driver side electric window is noisy and slow. The other day it refused to open or close and all I heard was a clicking noise from the dashboard. I think it might need a new motor but am not sure

Do these problems have a common root? Are they expensive to fix?

I hope you guys can help restore my faith in Alfas!

Hi Chris,

I'm having a similar problem with my hood. Using the button the hood completes stage one, but the rear lid for the compartment where the hood is stored doesn't lift up automatically. I also can't find the emergency pull cables to open it.

I'm getting it check out at the Alfa garage next Tuesday so I'll let you know what they say is wrong with it. This might help you somehow.
