Astra Convertible Roof Hose | Repair guide

Here at ALNO product services we’ve had many enquiries about how people can go about repairing the hydraulic hose on their Holden Astra convertible.  Over the year we have manufactured and reconditioned numerous hoses to replace broken an Astra hoses that no longer work.  

Our customers are sometimes curious in figuring out how to properly install the parts but we advise you to never attempt to replace the hose if you are unsure of how to go about it.  Below are some simple guidelines to follow but they are not the complete solution. 

Open your Holden Astra convertibles roof to expose the hydraulic hose.  This may take a bit of fiddling but the Astra owner’s manual can help you with this.


Gently remove the hose assembly from the cylinder in the vehicle’s roof and from the pump system.  Insert your new hose from ALNO Product Services. Don’t forget to top up the oil tank with hydraulic hose oil (don’t use power steering fluid) if you don’t have any on hand we also sell this oil.  Reset the hydraulic system.  

If you go to Holden they will install everything for you but charge you an exorbitant amount.  Find out how much you can save and for more information and guidance on how to install your hose please talk to us directly at ALNO product services.

Issues with your Astra soft top roof?





When you find your convertible Astra soft top roof is failing to work properly or isn’t moving then you have a real decision to make in how you are going to go about fixing it.  

Here isa list of tips to solving convertible roof problems

Reasons for making the choice
For a truly reliable solution you have two options, ask the team at Holden and pay an exorbitant amount or let us at ALNO Product Services help you get it working.

You’ll be surprised to know that a lot of our Astra parts revenue actually comes from Holden or GM branches from New Zealand, Europe and Australia-wide.  And it is often the case that our parts are half the price offered by the big dealers.  

Do your research
Our team at ALNO have been serving Astra drivers for over 10 years.  We can get your convertible roof moving and in great working order. 

Some problems we’ve solved in the past include roof parts:

·        Stick to the windscreen
·        Have sprayed oil everywhere
·        With the latch bearings incorrectly replaced
·        Roofs that stop halfway
·        Roofs that don't make any alert noises when you push to open or close the roof
·        Roof rusting due to the latches
·        Latches that have been bolted together
·        That need a complete replacement

Go with your gut instinct
Getting a repair for your roof system be it latch, hose or simply oil is vital in the maintenance of your Astra.  Don’t rely on mechanics with limited experience in repairing systems like these.  You costs will only increase if an untested solution or parts are placed experimentally on the system.
