    I'm new to this site and have done some searching, but cannot find any solid info on what I need! I am getting water leaking in the sub-trunk, c pillars, AND back seat floor in my 87 900 hatch.

  8. C900 Workshop
    Hello everyone, Quickly wanted to ask if there was a proper way to remove the front foglight switch on a C900? Mine won't stay in the on position so I have a replacement one I'd like to fit. Tried a few different ways to no avail and I'm hoping you don't HAVE to remove the entire fascia! I...

    I have a 1988 900s non turbo manual trans 222k miles. I’ve had the car for half a year and I’ve been fixing it for some time now. It has a salvaged title which I think is due to flood damage so of course the electrical is now messed up. Runs solid besides a air fuel ratio learning fault but...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I recently managed to get approval to revive my father's C900. I've been waiting years and I finally am getting to start! ;ol; This car has been sitting for approximately 12 years, so this will be one heck of a project! So starting off, we had to drain out the fuel tank. There was only about a...

    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...
