Hi everybody - good afternoon.

My (otherwise very reliable) 2007 alfa spider suddenly dediced not to open the softtop anymore.
Alfa did a diagnosis, and the problem is one of the motors.
The problem is that the part cost EUR 1.400 + VAT :cry: :rolleyes:

It is Fiat/Alfa part no. 71747952.

Does any of you know a breaker who may have this part in stock?

Many thanks in advance
Best regards
Jakob/Greece

Make sure you're absolutely certain it is one of the motors before you start splashing the dosh.

I've had alll sorts of issues opening & closing mine over the years, but not once has it been a motor problem.

Sometimes a bit of manual prodding & lifting to help it on its way is all that's needed.

Make sure the 2 struts, 1 each side, are in the correct positions when the roof's closed. You may need to pull or push one or both before the electrics can do their thing and open the roof.

Good luck.
