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.

You haven't described the noise: it's key to understanding what's happened, but the fact that there's a noise at all suggests that it's not just a blown fuse (even if it was, fuses don't just blow without reason).

If the noise is a whirring motor sound, then the fault is with the drive mechanism. This could be stripped gears or a failed motor clutch.

If it's just a click, then an electric motor has failed, or the solenoid (the click) is not sending power to the motor. The latter fault could be a faulty solenoid or it could be a failure of any one of a number of microswitches which sense exact roof position at every stage so that the roof folds and unfolds in the correct sequence. One of the first things which happens is that the bootlid is commanded to open in order to receive the roof as it folds; this in itself is a complex process as there will be a separate drive motor and a number of microswitches involved.

This is not a DIY job unless you're a competent DIY mechanic who is confident with automotive electrics, and with all due respect, the fact that you've posted this question tells me that you're not.

The repair costs can be fairly steep: it all depends upon how much labour it takes to isolate where the fault is, and then the cost of getting to the faulty part and the component cost. A single microswitch is usually cheap, but this can be one of those jobs where the cost is virtually all in labour charges. If you're lucky, the fault will be found in a matter of minutes and the repair done just as quickly, but you'll still have to pay whatever the minimum labour charge is (typically an hour for mobile electricians and half an hour for those who are garage-based). If you're unlucky then the fault will be more complex such as a bent hood frame component which usually means that the whole roof must be replaced.

You basically have two choices: get the vehicle to a good automotive electrician for diagnosis and repair or do as many owners eventually do and live with a permanently closed roof.

If you choose the repair option then normally I recommend that it's better to get an independent repairer to fix this kind of problem, but there's no substitute for experience so you may find that a franchised dealer has seen this fault often enough to be able to zero right in on the likely cause. Although their hourly labour rates will be higher, a speedy resolution (or at least a diagnosis) may save you money overall. It is worth asking directly whether the garage employs it's own auto-electrician though, as many simply call one in as required. You then just end up with paying Peugeot for acting as the middle-man for someone you could have found yourself at lower cost. So phone around: find out who claims to have specialist cabriolet roof experience and whether they regularly work on your model.

The final point to consider is this: if you're in the northern hemisphere then spring is about to start, and the entire point of your car is the open roof experience. Even if you decide to sell the car with the fault and replace it with another, the used value of your car falls through the floor if the roof can't be operated.

Good luck with resolving this fault; I hope that my reply has helped you to decide what to do. Please take a moment to rate my answer.

The roof on my convertable Peugeot 306 will not work on the button. It did go down but i had to push it half way to catch the motor, now it wont do anything. Can anyone help? Thanks Jay


The roof is operatyed by a hydraulic pump, the system has most likely develop a leak in the hoses to the lift cyinders or the cylinders. Have a dealer check the fuelid level and invitigate for leaks if it is low.

You have to put hydraulic fluid (power steering fluid will work too) in the convertible top motor. The motor is in the trunk, on the left hand side, under a panel. Pull the panel off and that is the electric motor for the top. You'll see a reservoir where you put in the fluid. Put in the fluid and you'll be good to go.

Convertable roof and trunk won't open


The Roof Mechanism works with two motors similiar to the ones that wund the windows. Now the two mechanism are located in the left side of the trunk. 

The trunk wont open Because of the roof lid that is not closed properly. How you can test this is to press down on the right sid of the roof lid and then try to opne the trunk.

Now the reason that this is happening is that the roof lid is not closing properly nad pressing on a small orange buttin located just below the right hand side roof lid catch. How you are going to remedy this problem is to adjust the cable tension to close more securely.

Now the two motors in the trunk that works the convertable roof can be engaged and disengaged on motor works the roof lid and the other one the roof.

You need to get these motors in sync so that they open and close the roof in the correct order.

That is if the electric are still working.
