Hi,



I have a 1997 Saab 900S 2dr Convertible and the Tonneau motor for the top is bent. Instead of replacing the motor for over $1000, does anyone have experience or luck with transitioning the automatic top into a manual one? My friend has a VW Passat that this was done to, and it works fine. Saab dealer is telling me it cannot be done, but I am not convinced. Any feedback would be helpful.



Thanks,

Angie in Nashville, TN

How about a motor from the junk yard?
