***** Romeo spider 2009 roof hoses
just letting everyone know about the issue with the hood on the spider (new shape)
Mine has had opening and closing problems for the last 2 month, and with it not seating correctly, small gap of about 3/4mm on off side when shut and drivers window not up fully up,hence at 50/60mph noisy and where the gap is on boot to the hood it's lifting even higher !!!
To cut a long story short my local garage found the clear oil reservoir that pumps oil to rams to lift and lower hood, this was nearly empty, filled up with correct oil, worked great. 2 to 3 times then struggling to fully operate. Found the problem to be one of the 2 hydraulic hoses leaking oil ,,, ***** wanted £230 ish for 1 hose, said it was a common fault,.
