The motor that lifts the flap up to access my convertible top has
failed. When I try to open or close it nothing happens - the switch
reacts to nothing. I got the top into the closed position but the back
hooks (behind the back seats) are not fastened to the rear locking
mechanism to secure the top. Furthermore, it seems the way the top
closed is crooked, because now there are gaps in the seal between the
front and rear windows that allows air in at high speeds (and water
I do not want to replace the top because the car isn't worth the cost
of repair. What is the best way to lock the back of the top down, and
seal the gaps caused by crooked top closure?
This is a problem with the motor mechanism this can b fixed for about £150 including parts and labour i have done this repair to many of these cars for more info please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org

In the trunk of car the lift up the rear deck panel where the spare wheel is stored.Look in the right hand corner and you will see a small motor.You will also see a little L shaped tool next to it.Attach that tool to the motor and wind it to close or open your roof.The roof will move,but very slowly.Saab was very thoughtful to have this feature.
To close the top, the parking brake must be engaged and the ignition in the ON position. Assuming that these conditions are met, you can close the top manually if needed. The procedure involves (1) removing key, (2) removing convertible top link covers, (3) gently prying conv top lid links on both side, (4) lifting the conv top lid to open position, (5) gently prying the red links off, and (6) finally manually lifting the top to the closed position.
Before taking such measures, if you do not hear the motors, check the B6 and D3 relays. You might also want to check the microswitch on the top/center windshield frame.
most likely the top pistons start to leak and the motor can create enough pressure to actually lift the top back to go in the storage area... i would let the tonuea cover lift open then get out the car and look around to see for fluid residue.. if not and there are no leaks.. possible the seals in the pump it self has gone out.. and the motor is still trying to pump... the pump and motor is located behind the rear seat under the small plastic panel/.
its the main top motor located in the rear passenger side qtr panel they bend and the gears dont align any more..
they are expensive.. and they will need to be programed after you buy a used or new one.

I just went through HELL because my top would not go down! I did EVERY possible solution with NO AVAIL! So anyway, Im in the trunk and noticed a baggy sack hanging in the trunk.. So I figured it was for the roof.. Anyway the sack has 2 straps to hold it up for more room when the top is UP. So I said "I Wonder...." I released the straps and the bag hung again, and GUESS WHAT? Yea the roof works!!!!!!!!!!!!!
