the tools that it takes:
- torx T25
- hexagonal socket 7mm
the parts needed:
for an air filter use genuine Saab parts for the best performance.
not so difficult for people of mechanical skill.
rough time estimate for the average DIY:
about half and hour....... take easy your time.
- -remove radiator beam screws that secure the intake pipe of turbo.
unscrew the two bolts (T25) of the air hose see picture:
- -disconnect the hose from the filter cover (7mm socket):
wires too tight in the brown connector.
I unplug for easy and security to avoid damages in the terminals.
-secure with a cloth the entrance of the intake pipe of turbo to avoid dust in.
- -remove the top of the air filter box
see the filter after two years:
clean the housing air filter....as much as you can... air compressed if you have.
or a household vacuum cleaner. never mind, I use a cloth and brush.
please note to protect the hose air admission to the turbo.
- -mount a new filter
- assembled in the same way but in reverse way.
