shift problems

  1. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi all, I was having trouble getting into 5th gear (sloppy shifting), so I took it upon myself to check the shift pattern alignment (the Saab WIS calls this procedure "checking and adjusting gear positions"; Platonoff's instructions are identical, but with better pictures). As careful as I...
