    Hi Guys, I have a 96 Spider with a manual hood. Does anyone know if the later electric hood will fit on to the frame? Cheers
  2. Calling Spider owners with electric hoods!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Does anyone have a broken hood lid motor with an intact cog (my broken cog shown in attached image! Cubed end has snapped off) I know a lot of these motors fail so I'm hoping someone has a knackered one sitting about with a good cog they can sell me! With any luck I'll have it working again...
  3. Dodgy electric hoods

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I think I am going to buy a Spider for the odd day the ti needs a rest. I've seen a few and am homing in on a P2 2.0 ts Lusso as the one for me. Now I know the powered hoods can be a bit dodgy, but does anyone have any tips on isolating the problem component, i.e. motor or switches? I don't...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Are the hoods on spiders P1,2,3 all interchangable? And also any differences between power and manual actual hoods? Help appreciated!
  5. Do birds sh*t on the hoods - and if they do what's the best way to clean it off

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Looks like a random Emu chose to crap on my hood last night - 1st time in 11 months of ownership. Other than water what's the best way to clean it off properly ?

  7. Spider Hoods Reliabilty.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Thinking ahead to the next car I might buy thoughts of a Spider loom large. However potential problems with the hood do worry me a tad. Are these reliable in operation or a problem waiting to happen ? Have read the excellent guide but would be nice to hear the practicality of living with these...

    General Alfa Discussion
    Is it just me or have there been a lot of alfas driven by criminals in the Bill (police drama in uk for those out of UK)? I swear i just saw a 159 in the preview of the next episode!
  11. Spider hoods

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Need contact with a new spider owner. I am guessing that the hoods are final trimmed at the dealers workshop.In Sweden they probably don´t get too many going through the workshop. I suspect my hood is not installed correctly - I was looking at an older Spider in the street - the hood goes right...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    OK - first time in. I like to pick up your problems and tips - I could not bear to renovate an old Spider - trouble at home if I take on more hobbies - plus I travel a lot - so I bought a new 3.0. I thought some delivery problems, but so far nothing, except .... Yes, the hood. Sure I know soft...
