This thread will contain a listing of suppliers who are known to be able to supply hard to get 99 and 90 parts, either new or used.

Becuase certain parts ARE hard to find, it cannot be guaranteed that any particular company will have them, even if they are listed here. If you do find that a supplier no longer stocks a part, please PM myself and I will alter the listing accordingly.

The thread is made up of the following headings:

0 General
1 Tools
2 Engine
3 Electrical System
4 Transmission
5 Brakes
6 Front Assembly - Steering
7 Suspension - Wheels
8 Body

This corresponds to the typical layout of Saab manuals. Each heading is part of one post.

Adding to the listing:

This thread can only grow with YOUR help! Please post additions in this thread.

Make sure you give as much information as possible.

Tools

Updated 23/06/06

Both Saab OE or equivalent tools, and also non-Saab specific tools that can help no end.

I've found recently that trying to obtain genuine Saab tools is difficult, as all the part numbers bounce back as obsolete. I have found however that perseverance pays off - they often ARE available.

1.2 Engine
1.3 Electrical System
1.4 Transmission
1.5 Brakes
1.6 Front Assembly - Steering
1.7 Suspension - Wheels
1.8 Body

a) "Spline" bits to fit the special screws on the door hinges (hinge to door screws) are available from Toolspot: http://www.toolspot.co.uk/category/spline-bits

Probably available from most decent tool suppliers, the hard part was determining the type of bit.
