Question about 1996 Saab 900

Open Question

I have a 96 saab 900 convertible and the top no longer functions. I found this link http://www.fixya.com/cars/t5322764-saab_900se which tells me how to make it a manual operation. I just do not understand it very well. How do I operate this top manually going up and down and what specific things do I need to do?

just get the manually adjustable one. I just replaced mine today and I have a 96 900SE. the new clutch feels better and you only have to adjust it when the pedal has alot of "slack". that means that the pedal can be depressed about and inch before it starts operating the cable. anything more than an inch needs adjustment

Most likely you have a bad TWICE unit. it is located under the driver's seat, at a low point in the floor and often gets wet.

My top on my 1997 saab 900 se turbo convertible, the top is'nt letting down correctly, the window is not goin down like it suppose too. it gets stuck at the last step when its in the proccess of...


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

My 1991 Saab 900 is shifting perfectly except it will not go into


I've had a similar problem, and it was the rubber bushings in the shifter link; as some particular ones age they get sloppy and 5th gear seems to be the one that suffers. Others will age and disintegrate, then you won't be able to shift at all. If all the other gears are fine (no grinding, judder, popping out of gear or other untoward behaviour) I'd look to these rubber bushings, and replace them all while you're at it. They're replaceable at much less cost than a tranny rebuild, and are most likely that cause, i.e. after rebuilding tranny, you still won't get into 5th because the shifter won't have been rebuilt, just the contents of the gear box!

Check the "Bentley Bible" aka the Saab 900 Official Service Manual, costs about $40 from Amazon, for info, it's an invaluable resource!

Get the appropriate manual for your car and enjoy the Saab!
