1 week 4 issues!!
After less than a week of returning to Alfa ownership I am now sort of remembering why its taken me so long to return.
Anyway my beautiful, silver Spider with red Lusso interior has given me the following things to think about, any advice would be appreciated. (I have already searched the threads avaliable and got some info, however there may be some I have missed, or its been updated).
1. Oil leak, somewhere from the bottom of the engine, booked in to be inspected next week, suspected crank seal?!?!
2. Slow hood on putting up - goes down fine, motors whirr away on closing, pops the rear section but really struggles to go up with out a helping hand. I have not been able to check the fluid yet, is it likely to be this or am I gonna start crying?
3. Slow puncture - thought I had got something in the tyre got it checked yesterday and nothing, resealed the wheel, could this be a porous alloy? If so will getting them refurbed do the trick or am I looking for new wheels. Again if thats the case, can anyone recommend someone in ayrshire for this?
4. Alarm - got worken up at 6.30 this morning with a car alarm going off, was about to start cursing one of the neighbours, when I looked out the window I realised it was the Spider.
Went down fearing the worse, but nothing, no leaks, no broken windows. No it was windy and wet this morning, is there any way to turn down the sensitivity of the alarm?
Thats all so far (is that not enough)!!
Cheers in advance
