    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

    When I had my 900 convertible the tonneau cover motor bent/warped and I had to buy a strengthening kit from Saab. Took the motor out, straightened it and fitted the bracket and all was OK. Does the 9-3 have the same problem and is it worth fitting one just to prevent failure?

    Hello everyone, I am sure that this topic has been covered to death but I have an issue that I cannot resolve. When I drop the soft top the mechanism it all works, except the tonneau cover just does not open far enough. It opens but needs to go back another 2 inches so the soft top can clear...

    Can I ask if any one can help, I have replaced my shear pin last week, and roof and tonneau worked fine, reason for originally replacing was when roof put up or down it would kiss the tonneau. Next day or so went to put roof down and it had reverted back to kissing tonneau now pin has sheared...

    I've got water collecting under the Tonneau cover seal. I've tried the dealer but they say it's not a problem because all Saab verts do it and I'm the only person ever complained about it. I'd like to get it sorted before it starts rusting or leaking into the boot so it looks like it's DIY. I've...

    Hi we have just got a 900s with 110k on the clock for cheap summer top down driving :) The only fault that i have with it is the tonneau cover motor gear sounds like it might be damaged as the cover starts to lift up about 100mm then the motor makes a bit of a grinding type noise If you take...

  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello to all you Saab people, I am a newbie to Sabb's but am rapidly falling for the marque. My problem is that my roof, when up, is not locking to the tonneau. That is the 5th bow is not sealing down to the tonneau and therefore leaving a gap. Any help would be gratefully recieved. David :)

    Hi, newbie here I've got a 1997 900 convertable which has recently developed a problem with the tonneau motor I think. It all works fine going down but just when it's almost down a lever comes up and is supposed to grab the hood to secure it down properly. Then the cover is supposed to fasten...

    My 2001 93's top will not open. I've owned a 96 and a 99 and have never had any problems with the tops. The problem with the 01 started 2 months after I bought it. Top will begin to open, but stops when tonneau cover is to open. I took it to the dealer, paid $100 for them to look at it...

    Hi All Looks like I will have to replace the tonneau motor because of the gear problem. My question is - can this be sorted for under £299? I've seen replacement gears for sale from the states but these do not provide reinforcement. Anyone know what the reinforcement consists of and whether or...

    Help! My wife has just called into my office with the convertible and the news that she tried to put the roof down with the boot lid up and now the deck/tonneau won't lift up enough so the hood is catching and jamming on the tonneau going up and down - if you gently pull the tonneau back the...
