Try buying one of the manuals listed on ebay , the guy is a real gent and the manual is a fantastic help. Motros from Saab are not cheap but if the tonneau motor needs replacing, try here http://www.neobrothers.co.uk/product_info.php?products_id=724 for a reconditioned one

SAAB 900 convertible 1995 - hood problem tonneau motor


I just went through HELL because my top would not go down! I did EVERY possible solution with NO AVAIL! So anyway, Im in the trunk and noticed a baggy sack hanging in the trunk.. So I figured it was for the roof.. Anyway the sack has 2 straps to hold it up for more room when the top is UP. So I said "I Wonder...." I released the straps and the bag hung again, and GUESS WHAT? Yea the roof works!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Saab convertible hood keeps jamming when taking down and putting


Could be 2 things...
THe nipple on the hood can be adjusted higher and lower to make a looser or tighter fit...
or the release cable can be tighted but a small clamp on the radiator core support check those 2 things first...

its a 1996 saab. the red handle only releases the back motor which controls the front of the top. the trick seems to be to get the back window released.
