  1. Shifter/Transmission Issue?

    Saab 9-2X, 9-4X & 9-7X Workshop
    Hoping someone can help with a 2005 9-7x. When I was about to back into the driveway, I shifted from Drive to Reverse. The gear shift would switch positions, but the transmission did not. The display on the dashboard showed that no matter how the gear shift moved, the transmission stayed on D...
  2. Difficulties in Removal

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    So I am working on getting to my heater core. I use some instructions I found on here for a different car but they have worked well so far. However, I have run into two issues: 1) The instructions were for a manual and I have an automatic. How do I removed the plastic around the gearshift so I...
  3. 5 speed won't go into 5th gear

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi everyone, I bought a 99 Saab 2.0 L Turbo Convertible on the 11th! Love the look of the thing, and I think I got a good deal on it, but several issues showed up shortly after driving it home... It's difficult to get into 5th gear. It doesn't matter if I'm moving or the car is turned off, when...
  4. Transmission concern

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I noticed sometimes the tranny sticks from 4th to 5th gear. Would that be a transmission mount issue?
  5. 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...

  7. Linkage problem

    C900 Workshop
    Recently my boyfriend has put in a brand new transmission for his 1992 saab 900 s. His car went from an automatic to a standard. And now is having problems shifting. Every time he tries to put it into a gear it binds up. We looked at the transmission and it was nice, fine, brand new, looks...
  8. Now the clutch is going

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I can't believe that I fix one thing, and something else falls apart on this car. Now my clutch appears to be going. For the past few days the clutch has not been coming all the way back from the floor after shifting--I've had to pull it back (with no problem). Today I had to fight to get the...
