    Hey, does anybody know if the Faraday cage effect is also given for soft-top roofs as good as in "normal" cars? I was in the centre of a really strong thunderstorm a few days ago with a lot of lightings everywhere around and I was asking me that. I guess it also safe because there is the...

    Our softtop, convertible is using oil. I have found that both left and right main cylinders are leaking at endcaps around piston rod. It then becomes very noisy and sottop fails to operate. Topping up the oil, gets it working again. Can any one recomend replacements other than OEM, or has...
  4. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    My wifes saab 93 yr 2000 makes a hydraulic noise when half way to closing. sounds like low oil. the SID gives a message and stops. If you lift up a bit and try again it closes, but where it used to fully shut it now leaves a gap by the windscreen that makes it harder to clamp it on the front...

    Is there a gadget anyone has come across which alleviates the, albeit slight, drag of holding the button down when folding the roof up or down? Would be lovely to just flick a switch and be done with it (OK, would still have to do the latch as well). Thanks JB
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I've got the Saab part number for the hydraulic oil for the soft-top on a 2000 93 'vert, but I've not been able to find an alternative source. Does anyone know what the spec for the oil is? All I know is that its NOT the same as that for the earlier models which used 10W engine oil. Bob.
