  1. 5 speed manual trans fill bolt

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi, I have a question on my 5 speed manual trans. The fill bolt of course has been stripped out by the previous owners. Any ideas or suggestions on getting this fill bolt removed? I think it was a horrible idea to put a hex bolt as a fill bolt on the transmission. I've already tried using a torx...
  2. Remove thread-stripped stanchion arm bolt

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I went to remove one of my stanchion arm bolts and the threads are stripped so it just spins. I've tried prying with a flat head screw driver while turning the bolt (see picture) but no matter how hard I pry, it won't grab the "good" threads. I've also tried grabbing and turning the head with...

    9-5 Workshop
    1999 Saab 9-5 turbo. 105K miles... 10K miles since purchase. Replaced the turbo at 105K miles (with another Garrett because it was available) and while installing it I thought the bolt for the oil feed to the turbo (above the oil filter) was not square with engine. Backed it out, ran it back...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Well I was about to put new spark plugs in the car and I found that the last screw was already pre stripped from who ever did it last. I tried using the dremel to cut across to make my own slot and that still wouldn't loosen the bolt. Any suggestions?
  5. Saab 9000 CDE V6, stripped *pic heavy*

    9000 Workshop
    Hey guys, Thought I'd share to you one of my Saab's, the 9000 V6 CDE Sedan. This car was torn down after the registration expired. Nothing was wrong with the car apart from the exhaust coming loose from the engine. Sounded really loud, only had 180K on the clock which was very good for its...
  6. Stripped Torx screw

    9-5 Workshop
    I was trying to replace my CPS today and I found out that the screw is stripped. :( I am not sure if I did it myself since I couldn't really see well or it is from the last owner possibly. Also is it a Torx T27 or T30? I have read different things. I tried both after one didn't work. I also used...
