Seduced by a Spider!

Whilst trawling through the local rag a few weeks back, a 1998 S2 Spider 2.0 Lusso caught my eye.

It was only round the corner from my house so though i would take a look seen as summer is on the way. It was so nice I parted with 4425 and am now the proud owner of my first Alfa.

The Spec is as follows:
Met Silver, Blue hood, Blue MOMO leather
46k miles with full history, belts all done at 36k, 2 owners.

Problems already:
  • airbag light decided to come on
  • a pair of the rear suspension bushes need replacing rather urgently
  • tracking is way out
  • the electric roof decides to stop 6 inchs short of closing fully (if i turn the engine off, gently push the hood back a bit then press the button, it continues to close correctly again.

One question I do have if any knows, to check the fluid level for the hood, does it need to be up, down or is half way ok. If i open the roof half way, i can see the oil resevior which is only half full.

Mark Stevo.

Hi Mark, I hope you get your Spider sorted soon. When the sun is shining and the top is down, there is nothing better!

Re: Seduced by a Spider!

Hello, well done and welcome. Sounds a smasher. Before I'd finished reading I thought to myself "I wonder if you're low on fluid'.
Sorry, no idea but would probably put my money on 'down' cos that's when I'd expect the reservoir to be at it's highest.
