SAAB convertible roof wont open

It's a '96 SAAB 93 convertible. When operating the roof retract there's some movement at the back window but it just stops there. There's no grinding or knocking sounds it feels like it could just be a microswitch. Does anyone know how many micros control this opening process and where they are? i have no idea how to dismantle it to get in and have a look at the micros and motors. can anyone suggest the best way to tackle this problem. Do i aproach from the trunk or the back seat?

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

Want to convert my electric audi 80 roof into a manual one


no need to convert.
the electic roof can be opened manually by:-
unlock the roof using the handle on top of the windscreen and push roof back as far as posible.
lift flaps adjacent to door pillers
you will see a small lever which can be retracted (both sides)
when these levers are retracted the roof will push down fully into its compartment
when erecting the roof ensure that the two levers are fully open to accept the roof retaing lugs

If it open's. but not all the way, then the fuse is good, no other fuse to open all the way, same fuse, the problem is with the retracting assembly, will have to take it in for service.

93 convertible top wont go down


This happenrd to me the first few times after filling the tank. When the roof stops push the switch to up then back until movement stops then go back to down, eventually it will get rid of all the air in the system and the roof should start to work.

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.

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.
