Electric hood problem
Hi, Im new to Alfa owner and would first of all say that the site has been very useful.
I drive a zoe yellow late 98 spider on 18s with stainless steel exhaust and clear side repeaters.
I have 2 problems. The first is sometimes when putting the (electric) hood back up it does not lock into place but after a few times it will. I would appreciate if anyone else has had this type of problem and if so how did you rectify it?
Secondly I have a slight leak coming somewhere from the engine (water, no oil in it). If I top my engine water its fine for a while but I think there could be a hose gone/split, does anyone have any ideas?
Also I would like to lower the car as it seems to sit quite high. I would like to know if anyone has lowered the spider on 18's, thanks?
keep up the good work.
