Default Saab 900 Convertible - Roof Problems

Hi there, hope some kind soul out there can shed some light on the issues that I am having with a Saab 900 (Feb 1995) Convertible.

The roof does not fold away.

When I push the roof button sometimes I back part of the roof folds up to 90 degrees but will not go any further, the front part of the roof does not move. It continues to make some clicking noises after getting to the 90 position - as if the motors are trying to work.

Sometimes when I push the roof button nothing happens.

There are no error messages displayed on the monitor but it does sometimes "ping" at me.

I have checked that the hood flap in the boot is pulled down and that the boot lid is firmly closed.

Help!!!

Think the Classic 900 forum is the wrong forum for a 1995 900

You have a "New Generation" (NG) 900. Post in the NG 900 / 9-3 forum.

Our convertible tops don't have motors. (Thank goodness.)
