Default DI cassette

My DI cassette is shot and im looking to buy one and do it myself. I just need to know if it is a plug and play or if a tech needs to do it. Thanks

How did you determine that the DIC was "shot", Nicoalex.

What were the symptoms ? Miles ?
Knowing the waning signs may help.

Next to adding windshield washer fluid, changing the DIC is the next easiest thing to do on this car.

Yeah, junkyards have them for around $100. I even bought one for $20. If you go into the tutorial section on www.saablink.net you can find out how to do it with a video of the procedure!

I figure $350 for the new DIC and $450 labor for a 0.5 job...
Saab's flat rate is now $900 per hour !!
I was once a commissioned mechanic , flat rate was then
$9.00 per hour, and this, one had to work hard and fast for...

$800 ???

And this $800 may not even include the new spark plugs..
An explanation is in order...

I think this is a case of greed slowly ruining a company, even a nation...

Is this Saab a V16 or a straight 16? Why 16 spark plugs?
