Hi guys, I think the driver's side seat potentiometer in my 355 SPider (LHD) was playing up recently because the seat refused to move more than about half an inch when the roof button was depressed. So, the only way I could operate the roof was to flip forward the driver's seat back using the lever on the side. Spookily, the electric seat started working last week, when I visited the Ferrari factory while on holiday in Italy! Then a couple of days later, it stopped again, but more worryingly, the lever no longer flips the seat forward! It moves about 5 degrees but no more. This 'total' failure seems to have happened while the seat was moving backwards during the roof folding sequence, but encountered one of my girlfriend's magazines, which got jammed between the back of the seat and the rear bulkhead. Using the handy Ferrari pliers, I managed to free the magazine (in several pieces). However, the seat would not move backwards or forwards using the normal button, nor would the lever on the side flip the seat back more than a few degrees. Does anyone have any ideas if there is anyway I can at least get the seat 'flip' mechanism working again? Or will this need a complete tear down of the seat? Summer time, and no way to get the roof up and down is no good to anyone!! Thanks in advance for any help! Cheers, Dem. PS: Other than that, no problems with the car covering 3,000 miles across France, various Swiss mountain passes and the North of Italy - I am really impressed!
