THE TOP IS RAISED AND LOWERED BY HYDRAULIC PISTONS, YOU HAVE LOST HYDRAULIC PRESSURE DUE TO A LEAK IN EITHER ONE OF THE CYLINDERS OR THE LINES GOING TO THEM, HAVE THE LINES CHECKED FOR LEAKS, ALSO CHECK UNDER THE REAR SIDE PANELS FOR SIGNS OF A OILY RESIDUE FROM THE FLUID LEAKING OUT.

NO Gears, And I cant Find Much Detail At ALL on this I Do Know as Fack that, it is A HYDROLIC Actuating System, Im Sure you are looking for More Detail than this But Im Not Finding Any. There Are Hydrolic Cylinders on Each Side that Articurlate The Motion. I Would Look for Leaks. Im Sorry I'm not Happy With The Lack of info here. Hope this May Make things Less of A Problem to Repair.

Convertible Top won't go down


Your top only has one motor. It powers a hydraulic pump that operates two hydraulic cylinders.
If one cylinder is not working, it is either damaged, worn or there is a problem supplying fluid to it.
Always replace cylinders in pairs.

1987 Cavalier RS convertible..The pump for the top runs but the top doesnt move. Checked bypass valve to make sure it was closed. Was thinking maybe hydraulic fluid may be low. Car has been sitting for 4...


You are probably low on fluid.
Behind the rear seat is your motor/pump/reservoir combination.
With the top down, fill the reservoir to overflowing with ATF.
Cycle the system a few times and repeat.
Do this till the reservoir will take no more fluid.
Check the lines and cylinders for leaks. The fluid must be going somewhere.
If you replace any lines or cylinders, always do them in pairs.

Saab roof starts to open but the lid dose not fully open to let the roof fold down


The 94-98 Saab 900 cars have numerous top issues that are known. The primary issue is the design of the convertible top Tonneau motor that is located in the right rear quarter panel behind the light. The problem with the original motors was that there was not enough strength in the housing that held the motor to support the top movement because the teeth on the gear drive would get chewed up when the motor moved out of position. The failure of the Tonneau motor causes the top to chatter about half way up or down because the teeth of the motor gears would get chipped off. Replacement of the gears or replacement of the motor is the only repair and the convertible top Control module must be programmed after the repair by someone with a Saab Tech 2 computer tool which is used to program the top potentiometer settings. If you catch this problem early enough it can be repaired by using the bracket reinforcement kit.
Check latches is also a common failure which displays on the Saab Information Display (SID) Generally, this failure is due to problems with the micro-switch located in the latches that secure the convertible top when up.
Another issue with the convertible tops has been the control module that controls the top electronically. The major problem with this is device is that it looses the ability to communicate with the Saab tech 2 tools. This problem appears to have been solved in the newest versions of the ECM.
This TSB covers the known issues with NG 900 vert tops. There are numerous others for the 9-3 tops.
