Needless to say that when the rear window section folded into the car against the obstruction it made a...

    Hi, I'm having some issues with my convertible. When I want to open the roof, just as it is almost open, the roof gets stuck on the flap that opens up to let the roof drop into the car. If have tried to draw it in below attached image, hope it is clear enough. In the image the black drawn part...

    Hello, The Tonneau cover needs help opening and closing, it's like it doesn't have enough power to fully move on it's own. It'll start sputtering in the middle of opening and closing. Anyone know what could cause this and how to go about resolving it? 1995 Saab 900 SE Convertible

    I have checked the solenoid and it is working fine. When I connect it directly to the battery it activates. I have also checked the buttons mechanics and it is good. When I put a multimeter to the 2 contact points of the trunk opening button it registers 0.3V until it is pressed when the...
