URGENT - Spider hood stuck open
I seem to have a problem with my hood being stuck open on my spider. It's happened before, normally the locking motor, you give it a tap with a hammer and it normally comes good.
However, this time it is not working, it is stuck good and proper.
Is there any way I can manually pop open the hood cover so i can close it? I have tried using the 2 buttons behind the seat, but the left button which is meant to pop the hood cover does not work at all.
The manual also says there are 2 manual release cables which you can supposedly pull to open it, but I can't find these at all.
I tried to strip the motor, but I can't get the rotating arm off, so the cables leading to the hood release are still connected to the motor, and because they are tight it doesn't allow me to remove the motor. I thought that the rotating arm was separate to the motor.
Is there anyone that can help please?
