Hose and latches Astra convertible

Over the past 7 - 8 years of fixing these Astra convertible roofs not only the Hose but supplying latches flexible drives and roof controllers.

We have seen many customers from the hose companies with the second end of the hose blowing, broken latches or pull cable failing when hoses have been fitted.

I'm just wondering if it is 2 hours to fix the hose and why do they need the car all day?

For $240 it really gets quite expensive when you have to do each end of the hose and there are 10 hoses in each car

$240 x 10 hoses x 2 ends = $4800

Not only the cost but what about the inconvenience to back and forth to the hose company driving people mad.....

It does not make much sense in engineering terms to spend money on patching up an old hose (10 years old) with it bending back and forth the roof for the past ten years.

$4800 for 10 hoses …… 10 years old

In 5 years those hoses will have had 15 years of bending back and forth

Our company ALNO (on the NSW Central Coast which supplies Across Aust, NZ and Europe) offers new hose industrial grade with new end fittings it is a higher pressure hose than what is supplied by Holden.

We offer a package deal of 10 NEW hoses and a set of recondition latches for $3895.

The recondition latches have the plastic parts removed and are fitted with Aluminium parts ...... this comes with a two year warranty

Please note there are many people talking down these cars…… maybe that is because the first person did not fix the roof or take care for it and pass it on to the next owner….. Quite unfairly….

I own 3 of these cars and enjoy driving them

We are happy to talk these cars up …. as I love driving them with the roof down ….

Our company is also happy to honour the above warranty when your car is sold therefore adding more value to the Bertone convertible when selling it…..

Can you image what selling your car with a warranty for the parts in the roof…..
