The roof on my saab 900 xs 2.0l (1996) works perfectly fine until the final stage of the tonaeu cover 'clicking shut'...it was fine until the other day but now as it gets to the final last bit something clicks like mad in the locking mechanism!!...if I get out and push the toneau bit down myself it 'clamps' and I get the beep to tell me it is closed as normal...

I wondered if there was some sort of adjuster for it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. with thanks, Matthew

I've changed the 'i' to a 'u' in the word shut in the title.

Possible weak motor on the final stages of closing...
