Question about Saab 900

1 Answer

On a used Saab 900 SE, the power sunroof does not close properly. The driver's side does not go up entirely. It also appears to not go up when the rear of the sunroof is raised. Will this require a major repair or WD-40?

I have had the same problem. You carefully pop the center power switches out of the console as one unit. Remove the master wiring harness so you can work on the controls. There are small locking clips to remove the top of the switch from the bottom. Carefully depess the tabs with a very small screw driver and seperate the controls. You will notice their are copper inserts that fit between two cams on the Electrical switches. Carefully adjust them and reinsert them in position. Placing a small amount of conductive grease at each location won't hurt. Carefully press the top and bottom back together holding the bottom of the switch as level as possible. Re-insert the wiring harness and test the system prior to installing in the center console

1994 saab 900 se has a ticking sound coming from top of engine and near as i can tell it is from the area of the intake manifold and some backyard mechanic who listened to it said that it was a lifter ...


Yes, that's entirely possible, especially if it has hydraulic lifters. They sometimes get plugged and then don't function properly. And they are right in the top portion of the motor.

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.

I need an engine diagram for a 1995 saab 900 se V6


A SAAB dealer should be able to print one out for you. BTW that engine is practically identical to the V6 used in a caddy Catera, and Saturn Ion. Those diagrams would be the same, so you might want to search that also.

2.3 900 se fan belt


The Saab fan is electrically controlled directly via the ECU and has no belt. I will therefore assume you are referring to the accessory belt that drives the power steering pump, the alternator, AC, etc. Pictures and step by step instructions are here and here. Both of these sites are also demonstrating the use of a shorter belt to bypass a center idler pulley that fails frequently (and that was eliminated altogether by Saab in the transition from new generation 900s to the first iteration of the 9-3 model).

1992 saab 900 turbo


being new to the world of saabs, but not new to the world of auto repair, I just took a little closer look at the system, and it appeared to me that the (cables) were actually hoses, so not wanting to uncork the system, I unbolted the sunroof assembly and suspended it down about7 inches using tig rod hooked to the mounting bolts, and laced throught the mounting holes of the assembly. This allowed enough room to remove the traveling portion of the sunroof without kinking the hoses. Found that 2 white plastic slides were worn out/ probably from lack of maintenance of previous owner.

98 saab 900 se convertible - driver side seat belt is fully "in" and is stuck. I can't really move it in and out, because it is almost fully withdrawn inside...


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.

1997 Saab 900 Turbo SE Brake Issue


Have you put the correct caliper on each side?
Are bleed screws facing upward?
If so you will probably need to have brakes pressure bled to push through air in ABS system.
