  1. WTB: starter for '89 900s non-turbo

    Parts for Sale/Wanted - North America
    Oops. When I replaced the ignition switch I substituted a couple of toggle switches. That was a mistake: the solenoid switch should have been a momentary switch. Needless to say, eventually I forgot to turn it back off. A couple miles later magic smoke leaked out. Replacement smoke being...

    C900 Workshop
    Is there a place that does moulded rubber or plastic (basically removable and cleanable with a brush and/or hose) mats for RHD classic 900's and/or 9000's any more? I can't remember the name of a manufacturer that did them I think in Denmark (had a set in my old red 89 900i hatchback at the...

  5. 29-pole bulkhead connectors wiring diagram / list

    C900 Workshop
    I'm failing to find a list or diagram indicating which wires connect to what in the 29-pole (or 29-pin) bulkhead connectors. I have Bentley's and PDFs of the shop manuals, but have yet to find a clear list. It would be great to have simple images and/or lists for the different years, and...

    Hello, everyone! I picked up a 100% original 1988 Saab 900 SPG from the original owner with only 199K miles back in 2010. Store it winters and enjoy it through the summers to prevent any accelerated deterioration from road salt. Makes me smile every time I drive it. Sent a few pics to the...

    C900 Projects
    I recently managed to get approval to revive my father's C900.

  10. 1992 900s Intermittent Central Locking

    C900 Workshop
    Central locking works about 40% of the time. When it does all doors lock/unlock and do it with gusto. I've been searching around the forums, seems to be a lot of info about this for newer generation cars. I found less info for the C900, but it looks like it could be the ECU? If so, where can I...

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Recently pulled a td04hl-15t out of a 2001 9-3. I have a 87 SPG. I have one question and a concept: 1. How does the td04hl-15t work in our c900's, is it worth doing alone as a replacement for the t03? Do the flanges meet up or is custom work or new housing needed? When I begin the tuning...

    C900 Workshop
    I know this won't be earth-shattering for most denizens here, but it's useful to me to have a reference like this, even for things that are for most considered to be basic. In case it's useful for someone else some day.... And, question at the end. The right rear brakes on the 1985 900 T16...

    Hello all, I have a 1988 900 turbo convertible. Recently, I had my front brakes done, about a month ago. Unfortunately, the front passenger side wheel emits a very loud and very high pitched chirping at and above 25 mph. It disappears when I brake. I was told the new pads must wear in some...
