96 2.3 Problem with convertible hood - JaybeeInHJ
Hi all,

History: A few years back, about '05 or so my Tonneau motor failed, I took it to a Saab specialist who put a "clip" or something on it.

Problem: The hood won't open. Early last year I noticed the problem, it was just every once in a blue moon, sometimes just driving the car a bit would allow the hood to open. Now, it refuses to open more often than not. It goes up a few inches off the windscreen, then the motor stops, as if the hood is too heavy. However, I notice in colder weather the hood WILL open (just my luck, eh?!?!) and the closing process never fails (and never has).

Any idea what's wrong and how much it'll be to put right?? I don't wanna get raped 1k for a new Tonneau!!
