  1. Immobiliser light on, ignition dead, window stuck open.

    Astra H
    Hi all, we've got a really weird problem with our astra twintop 1.9cdti, 57 plate, (which is totally keyless). The alarm kept going off randomly for the last few days, so yesterday, my husband opened the car with his keyless fob (that worked), and tried to start it. Nothing happened except the...
  2. Twintop roof and boot fault

    Astra H
    Hi all, I'm new to the group and to the twintop. I've had to put my roof up manually as it wouldn't go up on it's own after half a day trying.

  4. New Astra H owner questions

    Astra H
    Hi I am a new Vauxhall owner as I just bought my wife a 2007 Twin Top. Full service history, only 55,000 miles. It's a 1.8 automatic.

  8. Twintop roof/boot seals

    Astra H
    Does anyone know where to get boot/roof seals from other than dealers? It's just about 4 years old and had it since new, is this about the right time for them to be changed? Are they difficult to replace? Has anyone changed them themselves? How much do dealers charge? Just given it a good...

    Just fitted power folding mirrors to my twintop. Not a big job but really pleased with them. Auto unfolded when I started the engine but only once. Should this happen on each startup?
