I photographed this page (812-3) from Bentley:


Moaning could be a sign of low fluid level.

Bentley places great emphasis on using only genuine Saab hydraulic fluid - engine oil and regular ATF aren't to be used.

I had a look in the EPC and found the same diagram as in Bentley:


EPC shows the same diagram for convertible 900s from 1986-1989 and 1990-1994 (ie, all years from 1986-1994), so there should be no variance in location of the reservoir.
