Just had this issue - mine was a $20 dollar micro switch (if you can find one) Mine was not opening saying obstruction. mine was the micro switch on the drivers side, there is also one on the passeng;er side. That's probably your issue.

SOURCE: 1999 Saab 9-3 convertible. Motor

There is a manual release behind the rear seat on the passenger side. Pulling it releases the tonneau motor plate away from the gears, allowing top to be raised and lowered manually.Once this release is used, the back bottom edge of the top will never seat against the tonneau again until the top is repaired.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Saab 2004 9-3 Convertible

Had same problem, in the boot right hand side, behind the removable panel there is :
1 - a hydraulic reservoir which must be at correct level.
2 - a black box (stc) this controls the roof system,
switch ignition off then pull the 2 connectors off for 30sec then reconnect.
This worked and hope this resolves your problem

SOURCE: Saab 93 convertible 1999, how do you refill hydraulic roof

To check the oil level open the boot - at the very back remove the 4 plastic clips that hold the carpet in place. Slightly to the left of the center there are 2 holes - shine a light in the bottom and look through the top one to check the level.
To add oil - fold down the seat backrest. Remove the plastic trim - held on by 4 screws and 2 pop out plastic cllips. Undo the 8 large bolts that hold the cover in place - 2 on top and 3 on front and back.Then lift up the cover from the front edge. You will then be able to get to the resevoir - you will need a funnel to poor fluid in.

My saab 9-3 linear SE 1.8T Auto has a problem with closing the roof as one of the hydraulic cylinders has burst all over the back seat. How much will it cost to fix?


Anon, a job like this in a lot of shops will solely be based on time(per hour labor rate) and materials(replacement parts). You could try a SAAB dealership for maybe a book price.

2001 saab 93 convertible top problem


If you lower the back seat you will see a plastic cover on the botom of the opening. Remove the cover (6 appolstry fasteners) to reveal a metal box. The box is not actually a box but a cover for the hydrolic pump. Remove the fscrews from the lid and lift. The resevouar is clear and easy to check against the two fill lines on the side.

2004 Saab 93 convertible top will not close; just happened in 80 degree weather. No longer under warranty. What's approx. cost?


Lubricate all parts on the top that pivot and check the fuse for a blown one. If the fuses are good then it may be a relay not sending power to the electric motor. Hope this helps. Good luck
