Okay, my car is booked into a local saab specialist this wed in a bid to cure the vibration problems i have been having. Anyway, my mech has said that it may be a nice easy inexpensive fix but worst case scenario - engine and gearbox may have to be removed to faciliate repairs. I'm not too concerned about this as i have been quoted a reasonable (i think so anyway) top end price for this. So my question is, are there any other jobs that i should be getting my mech to do while the engine and box are out? the car has recently been serviced (less than 2 months ago). I just thought while it was out i may as well kill two birds with one stone. For your info the car is a MY92 C900 T16S 3dr with 134,058 miles on it.

(see it at http://www.saabphotos.com/gallery/ThorTheTurbo )

Anyway, thanks in advance for the advice/info

Graeme

It's easy to change all the coolant hoses while the engine is out- if your hoses are still factory originals or look bloated it's a good idea to replace them. The timing chain is easy to replace while the engine is out too. My engine is still sitting on the garage floor :evil: and before it goes back in I'm also replacing the crank pulley and the seal behind it, the oil pump o-ring, new belts, the engine mounts, and a new clutch... also it's a great chance to clean out the engine bay and get rid of all the old oil and road crap that gets in there over the years.
