    I have a 2004 Saab 93 and am experiencing the same problem with liquid coming from the plastic lining inside my car. Just a few hours ago, the motor to my top will not allow me to close the top. I can't locate the hoses you are describing. Can the two be related? Never had problems before and I'm the original owner.

    I just took to the dealership and the hydraulic hoses are leaking into the headliner and the hose kit needs to be replaced as the line ruptured. They've not had this problem with other 2004 Saab 93's and mine only has 51,400 miles (of course not under warranty). Now the headliner is filthy with the fluid. I've placed a call for cost assistance with customer service as it costs $800. What a mess!

Yes there are two drain hoses and one or both are most likely clogged. Check the bottom fist - they drain to the side of the car and you can see them just peeking out beneath the moulding/rocker panels just fore of the two rear wheels.

Saab 9-3 Aero convertible 2006 model coming up with message "Coolant level low please refill" Which coolant do I need to buy and the price and can I do it my self? How do I locate the correct...


Most probably is a leak somewhere, the sensor in the reservoir picks up when the level is low as to prevent engine damage. I would get it checked out. when repairing the water leak they should automaticly replace the coolant so i would just top it up with normal tap water till then. be carefull the water can burn you, so only open the bottle once the car is cold.

Where is the cabin air filter on a Saab 9-3 Aero convertible?


Open the hood and you see the wide, black, flat plastic cover that goes all the way across just under where the windshield wiper blades are?

On the passenger side, remove the piece of rubber weatherstripping by gently pulling it out partly. Remove the black plastic screw at the passenger edge of the big black piece.
Gently pry the black foam up but hold the connecting side down with your other hand so you don't rip it off.

Lift up the big black plastic tray like piece. See the filter?

Remove the filter by lifting up the 2 clips at the top. Don't break it off. They are hinged at the top and swing up (just the opposite of the post office blue mail boxes which have the hinge below and swing open). Then take off the filter.

Wipe the area with a damp cloth to do general cleaning and then put a new filter in. Look at the arrow to fit the filter in the correct direction (it draws air forward and pulls it to the passenger compartment)

My '99 93 saab conert top wont go down. i hear the motor running, but the back doesnt lift up to allow the storage compartment to open. the sid reads check soft top storage...which i did.


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/.

2001 saab 93 convertible top problem


If you lower the back seat you will see a plastic cover on the botom of the opening. Remove the cover (6 appolstry fasteners) to reveal a metal box. The box is not actually a box but a cover for the hydrolic pump. Remove the fscrews from the lid and lift. The resevouar is clear and easy to check against the two fill lines on the side.

Green hydralic liquid coming from convertible top saab 2004 9-3


You are probably leaking hydraulic (ATF) fluid.
Check the lines and cylinders for leaks. Replace any leaking lines or cylinders. Always replace them in pairs.
When the leak is fixed...
Behind the rear seat is the motor/pump/reservoir.
With the top down, fill the reservoir with ATF.
Cycle the system a few times.
Repeat till the reservoir will accept no more fluid.
You can change it to a manual top by removing the bolt at the top of the cylinders and lowering the both shafts down into the cylinders.

Top lowering problem on 2004 Saab Aero Convertible


I have a 2004 Saab 9-3 Arc convertible that had the same problem. The spring on the hinge assembly for the package shelf latch assembly was broken. The part itself is over $300. If you have someone remove the spring, your top will work again. You'll just have to put up with the top shelf hanging down in your trunk about 1 foot, but you can still manually move it to place things inside like your luggage or golf clubs.
