Indicator return and parcel shelf hinges

Two small jobs I'd like help with please on my 2001 Spider Lusso.

1. The indicator stalk does not return after indicating and turning right (turning left is fine), Will I need to remove the steering wheel?

2. How do you remove the rear parcel shelf hinged lid?

Many thanks for and advice or photos.

I've got the same indicator problem, but it's both left and right!

Yes steering wheel needs to come off to remove the indicator/wiper switch gear. You may need a puller to get wheel off.

The hinged lid comes off by levering down the gold spring and sliding out lid sideways.

Like Spankdanny says but you will need a new (or replacement unit) which sits behind steering wheel and has both stalks fitted to it (indicators and wipers). It's a very small piece of plastic in the indicator (can't be replaced) that fails and seems to be fairly common in Spiders and GTV's.

Get one off a scrapper (mine cost 30)and you can do job yourself although steering wheel can be a pig to get off unless you have a puller. Make sure steering wheel goes back on straight when you refit it.

I should have said I have a good indicator/wiper mechanism off a phase 2 GTV that I'm breaking.
