Angry How to fix a Saab's Window

I love my saab to death even if it has ton's of problems. I got it used, and I think it had an abusive owner

Anyways, I understand things will break and that is natural but my window motor or assembly thing whatever has broken 3 times in the past year, twice on the front drivers side and in the rear I took it to be fixed and it's still broken, today it broke and I managed to get it all the way back up. I think the motor still works because I can hear it, and it sort of moves upwards. I think it's off the track I'm hoping it is that and not something worse.

Anyways, I was hoping I could have some advice on how to take the door panel apart and try to fix it. I'm worried about breaking something

Also, I was wondering what the tube that plugs into the motor right above the S in Saab on the engine is for. It seems to always be a bit lose and I wasn't sure what that means.

Thank you all so much, this site is such a HUGE plus when it comes to owning a Saab

YOu can look for a platic nipple and a tube on the plastic dipstick tube.

Have you dropped the sump to clean it yet? and likely if you did not do the update it was never done... better get to it or kiss your engine goodbye.

What Jssaab is referring to is a sludging problem common on earlier Saabs. The pick up screen in the oil pan gets crudded up, starving the motor for oil and ****!!! Do a search on this forum for sludge or pcv and you'll find it. There's an upgrade that can be done to prevent it.


As for the windows, it's another common problem with these cars. The plastic rollers in the window track break and the window falls down. They're available from the dealer, (I actually got mine from a GM/Cadillac dealer) for around $8 bucks. Easy fix if you're somewhat mechanically inclined.
