  1. 9-5 fuel filter bracket replacement

    9-5 Workshop
    Hello everyone, So after many many years of delaying my fuel filter change (I think I last changed it in '07 or '08), I decided to do so yesterday. Mostly because I saw what happened on my brother's '01 9-5 (just rusted bits and started leaking gas). On mine, the banjo bolts and fittings...

  5. fuel filter replacement: post-work question

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Having completed the fuel filter replacement, the greatest difficulty was removing and replacing the plastic cover to access the filter.

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    OK, fuel filter was WAY overdue for replacement. Installed a new one, making sure the direction of flow was correct... Now car wont start. Does the system have to be primed? Or just leave the key on for a period of time for the fuel pump to fill system? Dead in driveway and only car - so...

    I seem to have found a couple different model numbers for fuel filters for the saab 900. Can somebody tell me which part(s) I can use with my car? I saw somebody mention a 401 and 601 part, and saying the 601 was larger, but I don't know if that applies to my car.
