looking for info about replacing the door rubber limit strap.

before I dig in does the door panel need to be removed?

Thanks
Mike

.....and not a fun job at all
search BB: there are lots of threads, like "door limit strap replacement" with all the usual warnings how well (or badly) some of the aftermarket straps fit and how you need miniature hands etc

If your Spider has electric windows, that is the worse!!!! Whatever you do, do not try to remove the the little electrical motor and the reel that spools the steel wire moving the window up and down.

For parts, you need the door strap itself and the two roller pins

Even on the electric window version it can be done, but it takes quite a bit of fiddling. I did one recently. Have a look here:

Its quite a fiddle on MAW doors, its easy to get one bolt in but really fiddly to get the second bolt in, in the end I changed the hex bolt for an allen headed bolt so it would clear the opening, you'll know what i mean when you have to do it, you'll probably need two rollers as they usually disintegrate, Classic Alfa supplied mine and it works fine but doesn't let you open the door as far it could go
