    Go into the battery compartment and you will see a small alloy motor fastened to the back bulkhead,just tap it with a rubber hammer (not hard ) and it will open again.

Where is the hydrulic reservoir on a 2005 Alfa romeo Spider


Hi Robert,
I have a 2003 2L JTS Spider which has a brake fluid reservoir in the engine compartment against the bulkhead and the other is for the hood mechanism and is at the back of the car. Access to it is from the luggage compartment behind the seats, after removing the moulded carpet inside it. This also gives access to all the hood mechanism.
It also helps if the carpet lining the the hood stowage area is lifted up. THere are also 2 switches covered by a black plastic moulding about 40cms square which operate the hood fibreglass cover and the locking pins for the rear of the hood. THe one nearest the door is for the cover. The hydraulic oil to use is Tutela GI/R and is different to normal hydraulic oils. I have a leak on one of the hood struts so I open and close the hood mechanically using the 2 swiitches and a bit of muscle. I got the Tutela GI/R from Mille Miglia Motor. It was quite expensive at $55 a litre. There is quite a bit of info on the Alfa Romeo forums about hoods. Hope this helps. Brian.

Replacing a 1979 alfa romeo spider's side window


Replacing the glass is easy, finding the glass is the hard part. Did you have to break in? Or did somebody else do that? Do you have the glass? I think a body shop would charge about $100 for the job. Maybe more. But it is a simple job. The glass, will be that much. Hope this helps.

There is a fine mesh screen sock on the pickup tube in the gas tank, replace that. It will collapse and starve the fuel pump, but not all the time.
