Saab 9-3 (93) Aero & Arc Rebuilt Cylinders

2003-2011 Left 5th Bow Tension Cylinder AKA Cylinder Bow #6

See link to DIY removal instructions below.

Model years 2003 and up have seven cylinders that actuate the soft top and its latches. All cylinders are very similar to each other, and it is hard to tell which one will fail first. The decay rate is generally a function of temperature. The biodegradable seals inside make eventual failure of all rams almost certain, unless the car gets wrecked prematurely.

NOTE:  2003+ Saab 9-3 Bow Tension cylinders are prone to minor rust damage due to failed weather seals on the vehicle.  If your cylinder has rust damage, to be successfully rebuilt it will require a shaft replacement for an additional $100.
