Default I'm in San Jose much of the time and have a Saab or two (or four)

It seems you can't drive a day without seeing a classic 900 on the road around here so it's pretty odd that there isn't a more active community.
I'm making a pile of parts to t-5 at least one of my 900s and if that goes well my 99 could use something extra...

Asking this in the Lounge will also get more Bay Area Saabers' attention

I used to have a mk5 Rabbit, a mk5 R32, and a Mk2 GTI

My 900 is currently dead in the water, tried replacing the alt yesterday and now it drops to 6 volts after we disconnect the jumping car from the saab. Really annoyed because that alt was a ***** to do and i dont want to search through wiring which im terrible at. Tried looking online for diagrams and cant find anything consistent on how the ground/positive is hooked up to the alt which i figure was installed backwards.

Default What's up Bay Area

Where do you take your SAABs for service and what not?
I live in South Bay so my options now are: B&B SAAB, Parker, Nordic Motors and Bo Jonsson.

Any experiences? (I have been dealing with B&B and time to find an indy).
