Car Models: Saab 900 classic convertible
Good afternoon, can anyone please help with advice on my 900 Classic Convertible?
2 problems, firstly the petrol pump isn’t working, don’t think it’s a fuse or relay which seem ok, so want to get to the pump. 2nd problem is that I can’t undo the boot lock to gain access to the pump.
Any suggestions please?
Many thanks
Chris

IIRC convertible back seats don’t fold down, so you’re going to have to get the boot lid undone. I suspect the white plastic piece on the threaded bar that connects the handle mech down to the latch has come adrift. Easy fix when you can get the access sorted.

Before you get all dramatic with a can-opener....
Mine did that & I was tearing my hair out - then i tried locking the car (central locking) and unlocking it a couple of times while a helper slapped the boot lid in the centre at the rear angled bit. That released it.
Good luck!
David

I've always found the book lock temperamental (to the extent that I now only ever use the central locking).

According to the Owners Manual ... "The trunk lid can be unlocked separately by inserting the key in the lock and turning it clockwise until it stops (approximately 2 o'clock position). With the key in this position press the release lever to unlatch the lid.
Return the key to the 12 o'clock position and remove it from the lock. The lid will be automatically locked when closed.
When the driver's door is unlocked the trunk lid may be unlocked by turning the key 1/4 turn counter clockwise (9 o'clock position)
."

Good luck !
