Holden Astra Twin Top Problems

Basically, the team at ALNO help customers that purchase our parts

ALNO can help you

Yes, you can purchase the parts cheaper on the Chinese websites or from overseas even from the UK

but if the supplier does on own an Astra or know how to fault find on the Astra convertible why purchase the cheap parts if they don’t work or you cannot get them to work.

If so then you already know you have got a roof related problem, but you may not want to go to a dealer for a costly repair, which initially will cost in the region of $150 each hour for diagnostics.

Then we are not sure if that will fix the problem

    Hi everyone, not sure if anyone can help

    I would be most grateful for any advice.

    I’ve had my Holden Astra Twin Top 1.8 design since June, it’s a 2007 and I’ve absolutely loved it.

    Occasionally the roof gets stuck when I’m trying to put it down, and I’ve had to put it back up then down again a few times before finally getting it to work.

    Today however it just would not budge and then only one of the panels that go out to the side went out, and the other one’s motor continued moving but has come away from the panel.

    Have heard about some models being fitted with plastic cogs that were then replaced with metal ones to stop this happening.

    At the moment my car is stuck on my drive with roof half up, half down!

    The roof will not budge.

    Have it booked in with the Holden Dealer tomorrow morning, they are charging $350/hour to look at it, then I’m worried what they will try to charge me.

    Should this be done free of charge does anyone know as it’s a common fault?

    Sorry for the long winded explanation, just want to get as much info as I can before the morning so that I’m prepared.

    Thank you in advance to anyone who can help

    I have a Holden Astra 2007 twin top

    I had a problem with the roof in that one of the parcel shelf wings didn’t come out as cog stripped so raised the roof manually and I got the metals replacements off EBAY.

    Question is what do I do now then ?

    How do I reset the roof to work again as at the moment the boot lid does not open and over 35 Kms/h alarm pings.

    Do I need to send it to the Holden Dealership ? if so any other recommendations from anyone who had the same problem?

    I just don’t trust the dealer after the last service

    We have been incredibly fortunate with our Holden Astra Twin Top Convertible I call it “My Transformer”.

    The problems we have had have been very minor and quickly resolved.

    This car has never let us down and is incredibly reliable.

    This is very important for me particularly, because I am disabled, a wheelchair user, and being stranded or unable to get somewhere would be a major problem and concern to me and my husband.

    Our car has not yet needed any work to go I hope we don’t have any of these Roof Problems.

    Her servicing costs are very reasonable.

    Our main cost is petrol, which due to the nature of our driving habits lots of short journeys, lots of about town and stop / start driving.
