Fuel shut off switch location on a 74 alfa romeo spider 200


Does the fuel pump run? The inertia switch, if tripped will prevent the fuel pump from running. If the pump runs but the car doesn't start than it's likely a problem with the fuel pressure regulator or the bypass internal to the pump.

Vauxhall astra twintop with fault codes B36BB and B36BA right hand boot lid sensor where are they


Many electrical faults on the Twintop are caused by the wiring loom breaking inside its sheath. The weak spot on any folding roof system from any manufacturer will be those components which fold, bend or twist when the roof operates. Alfa Spiders blow hydraulic hoses because of this. I would suggest you look at those part of the wiring loom which are taped to the boot hinges. Cut back the outer sheath and peel it away then check the actual cables for electrical continuity. If you cannot find anything I suggest calling a mobile professional auto-electrician. He will have specialist gear for finding breaks in wiring.

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.
