Local Qualified Mechanics to Replace Holden Astra Roof Latches.

ALNO Product Services are now supplying Qualified Mechanics across Australia with modified roof latches for the Holden Astra Convertible.

Broken Roof latches on your Astra Convertible is a common issue across the range of Astra convertibles. One can assume that the latches have been design to fail as failure of these latches protects the hydraulic system from failure. If the hydraulic system fails the cost of replacing / overhauling it is out weighted by the cost of replacing the roof latch, in terms of labor alone.

We have now seen over three attempts of do it your self or unqualified mechanics trying to modify the latches and each time the lead screw that drives the latch has been damaged this has resulted in the the complete replacement of the latch which costs AU$1400 per latch plus the added extras of fitting and plus GST. from the Holden Dealerships.

We have also had one case where a do it your self or unqualified mechanic has modified the latch and the hydraulic system has failed when the roof was opening, the hydraulic system need to be overhauled.
