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 "vents" on the solenoid shaft are. Everything fit right, but I'm wondering if I should remove the bracket and try to reorient the bottom two. First pic (with bracket bolt loose) is the original orientation. Second pic is after replacing.

From your photos, you have a "B" valve body. The two lower linear solenoid connectors are oriented down. See this diagram from the trans service manual:

You need to be sure that you ordered the correct solenoids for the version of valve body that you have. The earlier valve bodies had solenoids with connectors facing up. The earlier-version solenoids are shorter than the later-version ones:
