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.
