91 saab 900s roof broken how to close manualy

In the trunk of car the lift up the rear deck panel where the spare wheel is stored.Look in the right hand corner and you will see a small motor.You will also see a little L shaped tool next to it.Attach that tool to the motor and wind it to close or open your roof.The roof will move,but very slowly.Saab was very thoughtful to have this feature.

I have a 1997 saab 900 which has had a new motor fitted to it previous to buying it, but still had roof problems! I have pushed the red lever in back and managed to get roof back down and closed at front...

If the 5th bow latch motor has been relpaced, and is working properly you may need to have the soft to reprogrammed by someone with a saab tech2

On my 1991 SL there is a secondary hydraulic ram which is leaking badly. It is located in the roof linkage on the near side. Is it feasible to change this unit without major surgery? Where can I find...

Your softop is actuated via hydraulic rams that close latches and pull cables too move the soft top. It is a common failure. I'am assuming that it is the front latch ram's located above the windsheild.If not they are all very similar. If it is an easy one to remove or if you can see it closely-there will be a mercedes part number on the ram. it will start with a 129 prefix because your model is a 129. it will be followed by a 3 digit number and then a 4 digit. If you can read the nunber call a dealership or independent german garage and give them the number and they can order it for you. Your owner's manual should explain how operate your top manually and how to bleed your hydraulic system. I know from experience with these tops tha if you leave your key on and partially operate your roof to expose these rams it will self retract every 15 minutes so do not have your hands in the way and take your key out of the ignition because once you loose complete hydraullic pressure the roof will move. Good luck

Saab 93 convertible roof won't open

Your tonneau motor is probably bad, though reprogramming the limits may fix it. You will need the factory tool, unfortunately. There is a lot of information on this webpage. Be sure to read the information relating to updates on 1995 models.

Saab 9.3 Electric roof retration issue

It almost certainly will be the switches unless you have a broken wire in the loom. There is a cheap piece of kit available on the internet called an op-com that will read these cars including the roof, that will give you fault codes and live data to see exactly where the problem lies.

SAAB convertible roof wont open

I managed to sort the problem, turns out there's a shear pin. I found this pin sitting in the bag in the back (the one the roof folds into) Now i just have to replace that and hopefully it should work
