Different year, different problem. on a '97, the issue is usually the tonneau motor. Either the mount is bent or the gear is stripped. Possibly the u-joint is broken. You need to either remove the tonneau motor and straighten the bracket (if it is not too far gone) and install the Saab reenforcement kit, or replace the gear (also), or replace the motor assembly. Also, check the u-joint. If you are up for the DIY I can give you some pointers.
