I am assuming you are referring to the top. Making a noise only would seem to indicate that the motor is working but the top is not. Therefore we can assume that your motor gears are not engaging with the drive arm. This is a known problem and Saab issued a convertible top TSB to implement a campaign to install motor bracket reinforcement kits to keep the motor gear from disengaging this way. If it is too late and you have completely stripped the gear, you must get a new or rebuilt motor assembly as the component parts are not available. If not too late, you realign the motor and drive and install the reinforcement kit.
Complete bracket kit is here. Complete TSB info here.

The belt ratcheting mechanism is knackered. I have tried twice to fix this problem and simply could not do it. My ultimate solution was to buy a used belt from Goldwing Saab in NY and install that. It is about a 35 to 40 minute job in the verts.

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
