Question Removing Crank Pulley ?????

Hello, I have decided to change the Crankshaft seal & the O' ring myself & save a few $$$$, What is the best way to go about it - from the top of engine looking down or from underneath working up - as i was under the Saab a few weeks back & had trouble getting my hands to the crank pulley !!!! I was going to replace my Crank pulse sensor but i think i will just give it a good clean & inspection, What size socket is the Crank bolt ???? Thanks.

Replaced the pulley working from above. You will need a 30mm socket, a breaker bar, a flywheel lock tool, some patience and couple pints for when you finish.


This is a great tutorial... http://www.twinsaabs.com/900_repair/...o.asp?nsteps=5 I followed it step by step my first time replacing the pulley.

You've got to be joking.

Good luck Jamie. Most overseas how-tos say you have to cut down a 30mm socket to fit but I found the standard Sidchrome 30mm socket (P/N 14247) fits fine.

Thanks......... Yes it looks like a pain in the *** job but it will save me a couple of hundred $$$$, As i need to visit the Saab wreckers for a blinker arm & wires - there's $50 to $100 there so the $$$$ i save on doing crank seal / O'ring will pay for that, i have a couple of days free so i will start on it this Tuesday, will post if I get stuck.

You can save yourself some aggravation by bracing a breaker bar against something (say the ac compressor or shock tower) and bumping the starter (briefly!) to release the bolt.

Edit: Some years have a 27mm bolt, like my 92, but I'm not sure when the crossover happened.

What is the issue with your turn signal stalk? If it is not staying engaged to the right or left, you can fix that pretty easily by disassembling the stalk.

Can I ????? I did take it out & have a good look at it, as its all loose - when i put the right blinker on I have to hold it up other-wise it will drop down & go off, It sounds like it has 2 ball bearings inside that hold it in place when you turn- as i can hear the click, would i have to drill thru those 2 holding spots on the back of it to get to the inside of it, I did fix the passenger side power window switch by taking it apart so i might try the blinker stalk...............

Yes, you drill out those 2 "rivets" and the stalk will come apart. There is a little wheel at the end that falls into grooves when you put the signal on. Those grooves get worn. You just make them a little deeper with a dremel or similar tool. Then use 2 small screws to put it back together. They don't have to be pretty, they just have to hold it together. I use #4 x 3/8" metal screws. It will work like new when you're done.

Change for bolt size (30 to 27mm) occurred around 88. Of course a PO may have changed a pulley and used the first bolt they could find (naaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh, never could happen).

I am pretty sure bolt size changed in 91' from 30mm to 27mm.
