Re: Manual override on Spider Electric Hood
From memory (although its nearly 3 years ago), I think that if you remove the carpet section in the middle of the rear bulkhead behing the seats (it's just an oval section covering a hole), you'll be able too see the rear cover latch mechanism, basically a swivel bracket with cables running off to the left and right hood cover catches. If you twist the mechanism (or pull each cable inward), this should release the cover, enabling you to then raise/lower the hood manually. To close the cover, just push it down and it should latch automatically.
Think this is right - it's been some time, although I became quite proficient at the procedure during my ownership - Italians and electrics, eh?
Any idea how I add a signature?
