Question about 1996 Saab 900

1 Answer

My convertible top on a saab 900 SE (1997) is apparently pourous in a big rain and water filles the gutters inside the cab then leaks along both doors overhead as I turn corners. Is there a waterproofing solution I can apply?

The 3M corporation makes a waterproofing spray that works very well for most materials. It takes 24 hours for each coat to dry and I recommend at least 3 coats initially. The top MUST be completely dry and vehicle MUST be parked in a garage to apply and allowed to dry between coats - a carport is too moist and the product will not stick well, and you'll need to put a heater in the garage to keep things warm and dry - a small electric heater will do if you throw towels along the door edges to seal up the drafts. I have used this product several times - the dry warm is crucial to your success !!
Most major retailers, like Wal - mart and K-mart have this in their sporting goods / camping section, or you can go to Big 5 or another sporting goods store .
Hope this helps!!

Here the fix the saab convertable has the famous failed ground wire of the convertable top, the line the ground in the converatable itself and yes it fails, here is what you do behind the driver side is the convertable module you must identify the ground (I think it brown but very not sure), ground the convertable control ground wire and you will be functioning in no time dont bother to repair the ground in the top just the control top module and attach it to a good ground where it is mounted

sounds like your heater core has a leak in it. take your sunroof off and get some rubber revitalizer at a glass shop. Try cleaning it and using the rubber rejuvenator on it.

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.
