What kind of hydraulic fluid does my pump for the top need in my convertible 2001 saab 93 2.0l turbo just want to know that thanks

This information will be available from a dealer service centre but in the absence of information from them any hydraulic oil should be ok to use . Try to get the correct oil first but oil used in the power steering would be ok as it is a high pressure ,high temperature oil. If it is too thin then there are specific hydraulic oils that could be used. and obtainable from any oil distribution centre.

Need help I have a saab 93 convertable 2.0 i non turbo 1998 model drive belt has gone dont know where to find the ajuster to put the belt on. And a diagrame to see how it goes on.Regards James.

Here is a link to a Dayco PDF file that will have a belt diagram for you. Find you car on the main page, fine the number to the diagram and thats how you belt routes. Depends on month of manufacture yours could have 2 guide or tensioner pulleys. Facing the engine, one should be the top left pulley, that one is common to all. The optional tensioner will be the next pulley to the right. If one is missing it may have fallen off and you may be able to run a shorter belt.

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.

Saab 93 convertible 1999, how do you refill hydraulic roof

To check the oil level open the boot - at the very back remove the 4 plastic clips that hold the carpet in place. Slightly to the left of the center there are 2 holes - shine a light in the bottom and look through the top one to check the level.
To add oil - fold down the seat backrest. Remove the plastic trim - held on by 4 screws and 2 pop out plastic cllips. Undo the 8 large bolts that hold the cover in place - 2 on top and 3 on front and back.Then lift up the cover from the front edge. You will then be able to get to the resevoir - you will need a funnel to poor fluid in.

Saab 93 convertible roof won't open

Your tonneau motor is probably bad, though reprogramming the limits may fix it. You will need the factory tool, unfortunately. There is a lot of information on this webpage. Be sure to read the information relating to updates on 1995 models.
