  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I am recent owner of a beautiful convertible blk on blk and would love to make this car the best it can be, buttt lets just say Im not the most saavy. I could use the additional help it could take in removing the top permanently. Or until I have moneys to fix the broken side brace. I heard...
  2. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    The convertible top handle for my 2003 9-3 used to pull off occasionally. The plastic handle would separate from the telescoping rods and I would just slip it back on, but it came off often. The other night it happened and in the dark I accidentally put the handle back on, but upside down...
  3. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi, I have had this Saab for almost two summers now in Texas and I really want to enjoy it. I haven never been able to take the top down except for the first day I bought it! I know there are lot of people that have asked how to do it and I've read plenty of them. If someone could please...
  4. C900 Workshop
    I've got this 900 that's been largely great for me. I bought it with about 170k on it, and it continues to start every day, so I keep driving it. :) The convertible top is shot, and water is getting into the body. The rubber drain nipples in the quarter panels were plugged up, so I cleaned...
  5. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I am having a problem with my '04 vert which started recently (possibly with correlation to a recent heavy rain storm). When driving the car the SID message "open/close soft top completely before driving" appears constantly. It will come on and go off on its own with intervals of a few seconds...
  6. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    When putting up my convertible top, it makes a clunking sound as the 5th bow raises past vertical. I'm pretty sure it's the glass being pushed into then jumping past the broken retaining clip. The first image below is of the driver side clip (the good one) and the second is of the passenger side...

  8. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    First nice day of the year so I decided to put the top down. Top made it just fine into the bay. However the tonneau would not go down no matter which direction I pressed the button. I tried to push it down which caused the pump to die (over pressure pump cut off??). Top would not go back up...
  9. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi everyone, after reading many threads on this, I am still nervous... should I be? In reading the bottle and many threads it seems that it should be fine for the top. However, in red letters on the bottle it says not to let it get on rubber as damage will occur. I understand these tops to...
  10. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Greetings group, tried this morning to operate the top on my '05 Aero and the top takes forever to move, moves slowly when it does, and does not complete the process. I read on another article on this site this may be related to having to add hydraulic fluid to the pump, but don't see where the...
  11. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    When I'm driving with the top up the heater comes on fine and it stays on the temperature degrees settings on the screen. When I put the top down the temperature settings changed to a 1 to 10 scale and the heater never seems to work with the top it just blows outside air. I only have ever had...
  12. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I thought I should share this with someone. A few weeks ago I picked up a 99 9-3 convertible pretty cheap. The top didn't go down and it supposedly was diagnosed as needing a new pump. I had been researching and found a manual way to close the top in "emergency situations". It is detailed in...
  13. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So I'm trying to plan out my build for the the spring...So far it consists of forged rods and pistons, ARP studs and headbolts, cometic gasket, but my main focus is to see if I can squeeze a top mounted Gt3076r in there... I'm trying to see every option for top mounting before I look at a...
  14. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey all - so I have been experiencing the 3rd bow top sag inside the car where essentially the bow becomes unclipped from the main frame. You push it back up it clicks into place then pops back off. Now I have done the searches on here - and I read you can get in there to put in some self...
  15. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    This is my first post, please let me know if I am in the correct section of the forum. I have a 1995 SAAB 900SE Convertible. Recently, the top would not close all of the way, so I used the red lever in order to lower it manually. When I returned the red level to its previous position, the...

  17. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    This weekend the top would not fully retract on my 2001 Viggen. After getting the top up and latched with a little mechanical assistance, I noticed a fluid puddle in front of the right rear tire. I believe the problem is the the hyrdaulic cylinder that operates the boot/tonneau cover. No...
