Hi,

Anyone out there got any factory hardtop security catches for the 916 Spider lying about? They fit on each side to the rear of the 'B' posts and are the clip down type secured by three screws on the hardtop. I have located a source in Belgium that has them but the cost would solve Greece's problems right now.

Thanks,

Tom (Pink Penguin)

the good news is i have the catches , the bad news is i have a hard top as well so not for sale , but i have never used the catches as i have no idea what they clip on to , i used the hard top last year and never had a problem with it coming loose. Does squeek a little bit though , do i need some brackets made that fit to the car , do you have to remove the little flappy bits either side of the car to use them , no idea , anyone got one please take a pic for me lol.
good luck with the search anyhow :thumbs:

Spider Hartop Catches.

Hi Freddie,

The catches lock onto a little upright, right-angled bracket in the hood bay. If you have the Alfa workshop manual CD, it shows it all in there and how to fit them. I have had mine on without them and it was OK but I prefer things to be as they were designed if possible. Two catches and brackets are £100 plus postage form the guy in Belgium. A new rear window for it is not a lot more. If you decide to sell them, let me know.

Thanks,

Tom
