Might just be a silly question ,- but any way : How do i get to open the door compartments in my Spider ? I can pull them a little , but they just streeeeetch , and dont really move !! I'm afraid to break them if I keep on pulling. Any tricks I don't know ? Or are thy just stuck ?? I've just bought the car , so I'm not familiar with it yet.

Are you asking about the door pockets? They are supposed to be hinged at the bottom and 'spring loaded' to keep them in the closed position. There is an 'h' shaped bracket to keep them from opening (or closing) too far. Perhaps that h bracket is not positioned correctly preventing them from opening?

The h bracket was broken in our car so I made some from aluminum strip. Picture of the h bracket attached to the inside of the door panel:

Thanks a lot , Eric !! What I guess now is that the longer part of the " H " has been relocated inside the pocket instead of outside !! Anyway ,- I will check out this when I get back home !
