    Tony,

    They are available separately or as a complete kit, it is a special order item from the factory and we would need the interior colour (VM....) of you car so that it would match with your interior - last price was £195.00 plus vat.

    Malcolm,
    just had a look at owner's manual; my car [1996] has 2 switches to operate hood underneath a protective plug of sheet panel between the seats . Out of interest, do you know when the hood tool kit was introduced?

    Tony,

    Just spoken to a colleague in sales and as far as he can recall all 355 Spiders had the tool kit from new.

    As I said earlier the kit was secured by a strip of velcro, so I guess if the velcro is there the it would originally had a tool kit.


    Tony - last post "see below" - can't see anything !

    Regards

    Malcolm

    Tony,

    I have checked all the handbooks that were printed from 1994 onwards and they all show the tool kit and emergencey switches in section "H", I have copied the pictures for you. If you definately donot have it in your handbook I can fax, e-mail or post you some photocopies



    Regards
