  1. 9-5 Workshop
    I've noticed intermittent shifting issues on my recently purchased 2006 9-5 (5MT, 105k mi, all stock). It's always been a little tricky getting into reverse (and seems even worse when car is not level). I used to have trouble downshifting into second, though that problem seems to have gone...
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    I have a 2000 Saab 9-5 with a manual transmission and am currently doing a clutch job. A mechanic friend of mine un-hooked the shift linkage before the car could be locked into gear in both the shifter head (in the cab) and the transmission. We negligently removed and replaced the transmission...
  3. 9000 Workshop
    About a year ago I had the linkage updated to the new and improved design. It works great. However, this is the second time that the plastic locking clip on the ball joint receiver has detached from the ball joint. I instantly loose all horizontal translation to the transmission and will be...
  4. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I've just replaced all my engine mounts (in my 1996 convertible) after the rear most mount failed recently. As you can imagine, the broken mount was allowing a good deal of movement and after being repaired, necessitated alignment of the shifter. Aligning it correctly however, didn't allow...
  5. 9-5 Workshop
    2001 9-5 estate | It seems the linkage has broken from the selector to the transmission. There is no feedback just a completely loose lever. Where do I look for the linkage? I've pulled a few bits off the console and It's looking like a cluster cuss to pull it apart and I want to make sure...

  7. C900 Workshop
    I've been slowly doing little maintenance items on my 85 900T, and finally got around to trying to improve the shifting. Set up the shift linkage to align it as per Bentley- put it in reverse, loosen the clamp on the linkage, then drop the pin in the alignment hole and tighten the clamp...
  8. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have a 2004 Saab 9-3 Linear with a 5-speed standard transmission. As the weather has gotten cold I've had issues with my shifter. It has only happened twice but both times it was below freezing out. Here is what the problem is as best I can describe it: The shifter (on a normal day) will sit...

  10. 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...
  11. 9-5 Workshop
    I have a 1999 Saab 9-5, manual transmission. The car has about 167k miles on it. Excellent car, drives clean. So here is my story. Today I had 4 brand new tires put on, front and rear end alignment. When I got back into my car after having the work done, I drove for about 5 miles...
