Guys, this has turned into a complete fiasco. Chris Variava seem to employ people in their parts department who don't Know a thing about cars or even how to correctly search or identify the correct parts. I went in at lunch time today to pick up my new cable and it turned out they'd ordered completely the wrong part. Moreover they seemed incapable of identifying the correct part... It is only a simply Bowden cable on the roof locking latch. They ended up taking pictures to send to Alfa technical for identification and then later in the day sent me another schematic with more incorrect parts on at which point I realised I was wasting my time with them.
I called Alfa Romeo in Derby and spoke to a very helpful chap called Nathan who identified the correct part within 3 minutes, sent me a schematic for confirmation and gave me the price. All great apart from the price... £144 exc Vat. You can't get the cables anymore, Alfa stopped doing them and now only supply the latch and cable as one part. This is a complete **** take IMHO.
Anyone got a second hand Bowden cable for the nearside roof hatch locking latch?
