The 3 obvious UK Saab breakers are (in no particular order)

Two Stroke Turbo
Salvo Group
Neo Brothers

all 3 have web sites and contact numbers.

I'll check my EPC when i get home for relevant part numbers. I can't see there being much difference between 98-02 gearboxes as they are all 4 speed Aisin Warner units. It may however be a software issue.

It would appear there are subtle differences.....:confused:

98-99 marked FA47AO1 part no is 4578563
00-01 part no is 5161088
02 marked FA57AO2 part no is 5257720

(presuming your 2.3 is the lpt model, Aero is different again) :x
