  1. What c900 service parts can you use in a 99?

    99 & 90 Workshop
    Hello, Looking at service parts and not-so- frequent-jobs only in terms of parts interchangeability between c900 (flatnose) and 99 (B engined, pre-c900), typically 1976 models. CV boots and joints Wheel bearings Brake parts: calipers, master cylinder, brake hoses Clutch control: master/slave...
  2. Gear Shift compatibility

    C900 Workshop
    So I'm not a mechanic, I'm not car savvy at all. My Saab 1991 900 busted the gear shaft (Shifter thingy?) and my shop says that there is an '87 at a pick-a-part, but they don't know if they'll match. So my question is can I take a shift stick from an '87 and put it into a '91 with out too much...
  3. 900s Radio Compatibility

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi, I got a 97' 900s and I was wondering if it was possible to do a radio swap with one from a 9-3, one with a CD player. Just curious if any wire splicing is necessary, or more importantly not possible. I'm sure it should be, but just making sure. Thanks, Dan
  4. Horn Contact Ring cross model compatibility?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I've read through the forum and seen that some have replaced their busted horn contact ring for their 1998 Saab 900-s with one from a 1999-2003 9-3 and/or 9-5. My understanding is this is because the '98 is closer to a 9-3 than the other NG model years. So will a contact ring from a 99-03 9-3...

    9-5 Workshop
    Hey guys. So I'm pretty sure my turbo is blown. It's pumping out more and more smoke. Now I looking for an upgrade or a quick fix, which ever is cheapest right now. I'm on a serious budget because I have to fix a few things on this baby. What other turbo's are compatible? I have a 2001 9-5 SE V6.
  6. 1989 vs. 1990 steering column

    C900 Workshop
    Hi, I've got a 1990 non turbo with a bad steering column. I've got a replacement for it out of a 1989, but I am wondering if SAAB changed the way the wheel mounts onto it when they implemented the airbag. I've done work with airbags before on other cars, so I'm confident I can work on the...
  7. Putting a B205R in a 1999 9-3?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Anybody see any issues with installing a B205R from a 2003 9-3 convertible in a 1999 B204L car? I have the entire donor car available for parts, and yes, I understand that the older engine is less prone to sludge. The 2003 engine has less than 90K on it and I'll also swap the turbo, auto...
