Default 1998 SAAB 9-3SE Cabrio

I am new to SAAB Forum.

I have a 1998 SAAB 9-3ES Turbo cabriolet.

I bought it several months ago for a good price, however it did have several issues.

1. It had not been run for about 6 months as the owner had lost its ignition
2. The SID II unit has a number of pixels missing making the display
3. I had a strange situation where the clutch would not disengage. The
following day it worked perfectly! And seems to be no problem now.
The entire clutch was replaced a few months ago.
4. There is a rattling, or thumping that appears to originate from under the
car, on the front left side.
5. The soft top hydraulics has a leak somewhere, as I keep having to top up
the fluid reservoir.

Any suggestions as to solutions to any, or all of these issues would be welcome.
