    Hello all, I am looking for a later gen 9000 5 speed manual transmission. All gears including reverse have to work, and I'm willing to spend up to $400+shipping for a good example. It doesn't matter if it's the FM57 or the FM51. Thanks.

    Hi, My 2003 9-5 with paddle shifters was all good until I sent away my SiD to be repaired. The guy had all sorts of personal issues and it was delayed so he just sent me another one. It is throwing a transmission light on the dash and the paddle shifters no longer work. I've read this can be...

    Howdy! I recently purchased and installed The Genuine Saab transmission mount. In doing so, one of the bolts connecting it to the frame of the car will tighten, but not nearly to the 54lb feet suggested- it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, and it’s flush with the frame, but I can still spin it...

    Is the auto transmission in a LPT the same as that used in a FPT? I have a problem in the transmission of my FPT convertible and have found a second hand tranny from a LPT of the same year and wonder if a straight swap will work ok? Cheers, Steve

    I ended up stripping the 12mm hex on the transmission fluid drain bolt and the torx screw that goes inside of it snapped in half so I have been looking around for a replacement. I believe the 2007 aero 6-speeds come with the AWTF-80 SC transmission? And the only bolt I could find online is sold...

    I can never seem to find one straight answer on what ATF is good to use and what is not. The Saab OEM fluid is $24 a liter on eeuroparts which is crazy. Autohausaz.com sells Aisin ATF (93165147) for $9 a quart which is supposed to meet the AW-1 requirement. Is this okay to use? Aisin 93165147...

    Hello, Recently bought an '07 9-3 and it's been great so far! I bought it knowing it had a rear main seal leak and that it was still on the original clutch at 190k miles. Surprisingly, the clutch still feels super smooth and overall quite good. However, I recently started hearing a noise that I...

    Hello, I am changing out the three linear solenoids in my 2009 Saab 9-3 2.0t. When replacing the new ones, does the position matter? I'm not talking about the order, I have replaced them one at a time with the correct one, but the difference is mainly in where the connector rests and where the...

    I own a 2003 v6 saab 9-5 with a barely working 5 speed automatic transmission. I'm interested in swapping the automatic transmission out for a manual. I checked junkyards near where I live to see if i could find another 9-5 to pull the transmission from, but the only ones I could find where 9-5s...

    2006 93 2.0t, Manual 5spd Hi Folks, my issue is with the gear box. There are no longer any gears to select. The gear lever feels like a springy stick in a mud puddle. I can push it around but it won't hold into any gear position. I briefly got it in to reverse, but it would slip out never to...

    Just replace the clutch, pressure plat, slave, and clutch master cylinder a couple of months ago. Now I still have pedal, and it feels like the shifter is shifting into gear. However, the car wont engage and i can let off the clutch in any gear without stalling. It's like its stuck in neutral.

    Dad bought a car that didnt run and had no clutch. Cars running now replaced the clutch and clutch master cylinder along with the slave and throwout bearing. The car shakes very badly at all speeds.. guessing thats unrelated. Itll shift through all the gears without a problem but once you hit 55...

    During a long drive recently, I encountered a problem with the transmission. I'd been driving for around an hour when I slowed down approaching an intersection. When I reached a speed around 50-40 km/h the car started to stutter and almost stalling itself, so I pulled over and put the car in...

    I'm scared. A while back, maybe even 6 months ago, I was trying to figure out where my coolant was leaking from. After searching and observing for a while, I came across a hose that was just lying there. Aha! We found it! It seemed to be a perfect fit for a connection coming from the back of my...
