    C900 Workshop

  6. 9-5 no 5th or reverse

    9-5 Workshop
    My partner's '98 Saab 9-5 cannot select 5th gear or reverse. I can remove the key by selecting 4th gear. It feels as if something in the shift linkage has slipped or broken. Any suggestions? How do I go about investigating further. Is a workshop manual available online? Thanks in anticipation. Don
