1991 C900 Turbo Convertible. I've searched all the threads on this but has anyone found a way to compress the clutch/pressure plate without the special Saab tool and without cutting it to pieces. I replaced my slave cylinder a couple weeks ago, bled the system, had great pedal feel/pressure. I drove the car once about 50 miles, pedal starting losing pressure, then at a redlight stopped in a line of traffic, lost the clutch completely and the car starting moving with the clutch pedal all the way to the floor. Very scary! Good thing I wasn't right behind the car in front of me. Anyway, took it back apart and couldn't see anything wrong with the new slave cylinder -- no obvious leaks. Pushed back the bearing cover, all dry. So I replaced the clutch master cylinder and clutch line. Now I can't get any pressure in the system and fluid is hemorrhaging out from the bottom of the slave when I try to bleed it, so it appears to be blown. I now have no way of getting it back out since it's not working at all and I can't compress the clutch/pressure plate to get the spacer ring in there. The first time the slave was still working somewhat so I was able to compress the clutch first. I've read some various possible homemade fixes, but like to hear what has or will actually work. My clutch is fairly new so I don't want to damage it in any way. Thanks!
