First sunny day of Spring.....

......go to drop the powered roof,rear section lifts up but hood cover refuses to move.
Anyway a quick trip to Alfatech at Luton and normal service has been resumed.Turned out that one of the cables had some corrosion betwwen it and its outer case.Cables and mechanism lubricated,roof reset and all is OK for a summer for a top down motoring.(Probably just jinxed us for the wettest summer in living memory!)
Whilst the car was in had the brakes bled too,but now discovered the front wishbone bushes are on their way out.
Why do these things happen when the car is just 1 month out of warranty......
Anyway top marks to Alfatech for their all round enthusiasm and advice.

Some days you`re the statue and some days you`re the pigeon
