    Central Locking Failure - 1st indication: Pax door would lock and reopen when returning driver's door key to neutral position for key removal. 2nd indication: Light humming noise from driver's door for about 30 secs.
    Function: Driver's door lock position sensor does: inverse polarity of power to pax door motor, and limits time power is supplied.
    Troubleshooting: Remove driver's door sensor module (grey box) and directly inverse polarity by joining the appropriate wires (that's why you have a colored diagram made by me) > drivers door locks and unlocks normally, so problem is in the driver's door sensor, a ultrasound welded waterproof box...
    Enters Dremel and voilà, the innards reveal a burned out capacitor. Ordered online for 2 cents and replaced the unit worked when the microswitches were pressed by hand, but NOT when the box was reassembled! Locking was incomplete, leading to the integrated relay humming, and probably to the capacitor failure after a few attempts.
    I searched and found IDENTICAL microswitches from the same company, for $2.50/each, online.
    Replaced both, and reassembled the box with additional screws (oh my, not original!) and sealed it with aluminium tape around the Dremel cut.
    It works perfectly since... by the way, the unit is a Peugeot 205/505 Vachette/Valeo part.

    Sidenote: Ferrari is an Italian car, using a French door lock sensor, which includes a Taiwanese capacitor, a Swiss microswitch, an American chip and many more "nationalities" - That was in the 80s. Today? Does anyone really believe it's possible to buy a product made in ONE country? Hahaha.

    Headliner Retrim - I got hold of a NOS roll of original Ermenegildo Zegna wool fabric, which unfortunately, was cut in half by the seller to double the price... My aunt, a professional tailor, re-joined the two halves perfectly and also re-produced the sliding roof trim using the original Vinyl side trim and new Spandex rear section... amazing work. All got put back onto the restored roof panel:

    The size of the fabric was minimal, no error would be tolerable on cutting the nla material. I checked if the basic size was large enough to cover the headliner plus the rear finishers and C-pillars trim. It looked just ok... Note the color change of old vs. new. I detrimmed the headliner from its courtesy lights and roff switch surrounds. Then I peeled off the fabric... no way back at that point.

    Fabric Pattern - I stretched out and measured the original fabric sections to create the correct layout in respect the fabric direction (it's a cavalry twill with a 20° slant to the left) for all parts, referencing to the originals. From that I produced a drawing showing the correct layout. I then laid out the parts in real according to the drawing and cut the corresponding parts away. Note the color changes on the originals. This wasn't as visible in the car as it is here. Should someone want the original fabric as a pattern, please feel free. It's yours at shipping cost.

    Headliner Finisher, C-pillar, B-pillar and additional trim re-trim - I started off with retrimming the almost flat rear finishers, then the highly complex C-pillar - with a support bracket sticking through the trim. You need to pre-cut it and then place it correctly ONCE using contact glue, by 3M. Those are the first parts to be installed.

    Great thread, and congratulations on sourcing the correct headliner fabric.

    Save some scraps since some will need it reproduced (hopefully) in the future.
