■ Activating the roof on uneven

ground can lead to malfunctions

and damage.

■ To prevent and remedy squeaking

noises of the roof seals a special

maintenance kit is available at your

service partner. It is recommended

to apply this product once a year for

prevention.

Fault

The automatic drive of the roof is only

operational if the roof is in the proper

open or closed position.
Check if:

■ Load compartment blind is

engaged in closed position

■ Boot lid is completely closed
■ Outside temperature is above

-20 °C

■ There is sufficient battery voltage
■ There is a system overload

If the automatic drive is not

operational, two persons are required

to manually close the roof. See the

accompanying instructions for Astra

TwinTop. Professional assistance is

recommended.

Rollover protection system

The Astra TwinTop is equipped with

rollover protection with reinforced

windscreen frame and anti-roll bars

behind the rear seat head restraints.

Depending on the variant, the anti-roll

bars are either fixed or deploy

automatically in the event of an

impact of a certain severity.

Fixed anti-roll bars

Fixed anti-roll bars are secured to the

vehicle bodywork.

Deployable anti-roll bars

Deployable anti-roll bars are located

between the rear head restraints and

the boot lid. In the event of a rollover,

head-on collision or side impact, the

anti-roll bars deploy upwards within

milliseconds. They also deploy

together with the front and side airbag

systems.
The system deploys with the roof

open or closed.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

44

Keys, doors and windows

The convertible roof must not be

operated if the anti-roll bars have

been deployed. A continuous warning

will sound if the switch is actuated.
The airbag control indicator v

illuminates if the anti-roll bars have

been deployed.

Note

Do not place any objects on the

covers of the anti-roll bars behind

the head restraints.

Extended anti-roll bars can be

retracted (e.g. in order to close the

roof after a collision).
Press the lever between the rods of

an anti-roll bar to unlock the system.

Push the anti-roll bar all the way down

until it engages. Fit the cover.
Repeat the procedure on the other

anti-roll bar.
Control indicator v will remain

illuminated and the anti-roll bars will

not deploy in the event of another

collision. Seek the assistance of a

workshop.

9 Warning

The roof cannot be closed or

opened if the anti-roll bars are

extended. The anti-roll bars must

first be retracted.
After deployment of the anti-roll

bar, have the system repaired by

a workshop immediately.
Manually retracted anti-roll bars

will not deploy in the event of a

collision.

Load compartment

The roof can only be opened if the

load in the load compartment does

not exceed the height of the load

compartment blind or protrude

sideways. The load height must not

be exceeded. The load compartment

blind must be flat; objects below it

must not press it upwards. Otherwise

the roof and load may be damaged.

Blockage of boot lid

To avoid damage to the open roof,

boot lid or load, the boot lid can only

be closed if the electric load aid is in

the lower end position 3 77.

rear seats are unoccupied, the wind

deflector can remain mounted in the

vehicle when the roof is closed.

deflector is completely folded down in

the load compartment:
