2009 Spider Electric Convertible Roof
« on: December 14, 2021, 01:36:06 PM »
Hello.
I have a 2009 Brera 2.2 litre Alfa Romeo Convertible - which I purchased from an Alfa Romeo mechanic in Feb 2020 - from Southport in Queensland. Colour is black with the oxblood and tan leather interior. I think a very smart looking car. Of late - I can get the roof down. However, getting it up is very problematic. I have researched the issue on the Internet and I think I need to replace 1 or 2 flap motors. These just dangle when the roof is trying to close.

Who do you suggest I get to look at this? A convertible roof specialist (most the the roof mechanisms are generic regardless of the make of car) or and Alfa Romeo local mechanic.
I have 3 names rom the Alfa Romeo Owners Club (Vic).

I live in Toorak so the closest is Alfa Donini in Malvern East or Ital Motors in Hawthorn. Monza is my third choice and further away in Bayswater.
Any help with his would be greatly appreciated. The roof has worked perfectly - until a few weeks ago.

Regards Peter
