    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi, I've just bought my second Saab. A 2002 9-3 convertible 2.0t at a bargain price. The catch is that the gearbox doesn't function. Symptoms: Gear leaver moves freely. It does park. When they select a gear it just sits in neutral. In the Instrument panel the lights light up at the selected...
  4. Rear engine mount - Auto vs. Manual

    9-5 Workshop

  8. Auto to Manual conversion

    Hello, I've found and read the Auto to Manual Conversion PDF doc that's available on the C900 tech forum for performing the swap on a C900 (obviously :roll:). While I understand the fundamentals would be the same to do the swap on a 99, is it as much of a bolt on conversion on the 99 than on...
