Happy chap again today!!!
A few weeks ago I took the Spider over to Belgium for a weekend in Bruges.
On the way back I went to get out the car in Calais and I heard a ping and the door handle went slack inside the car,so I had a few weeks of having to undo the window and open the door from the outside
I ordered a new cable and today got round to fitting it,a job I wasn't looking forward to as I've read it can be a bath steward of a job.
Got the door card off and found a load of car park tickets inside for a car park in Croydon from June 2007.Someone couldn't be arsed to put them in the bin so wound the window down and dropped them inside the door
One other thing that has often bugged me was that one of the 3mm screws that hold the door card on near the hinges was missing,when I removed the speaker from the door there it was stuck to the magnet on the back of the speaker where it had been hiding from a previous owner.
Anyhow after a bit of fiddling and swearing I got the cable fitted and somehow got the door back together and after a bit of a struggle getting the doors to lock again all is good
So as I can now get in and more importantly out of the car again this afternoon I took her out for a blast
