    I'm interested in the method you used to fix your odometer. When I owned my 99, I could buy VDO replacement gears from the speedo shop. Now the original gears appear to be unobtainium...

    Does it look damaged? What is your mechanical intuition? Maybe post pictures and someone who knows more will chime in.

    The "red item" is part of the cruise control system. If you look, you will see that it is connected to the vacuum motor by a vacuum line. That in turn, has a vacuum line that leads back to the...

    I did not view the video, but from the pictures I can see that on the plus side, the engine components look fairly free of corrosion. On the minus side, someone has made many modifications. If it ran...

    It doesn't quite look like the valve in the parts diagram at the Jim Ellis SAAB website, but it looks like it is in the proper location. So, sorry I can't ID it for sure.In any case, the EGR on my...

    That's a fairly nice 900. The single stage paint will rub out nicely is my guess. The engine looks like it has been worked on at some point by a non-SAAB guy using stainless-steel hose clamps. They...

    Considering that you bought the car not running, it could be a whole bunch of things. I won't repeat what I said in the fuel-pump thread mentioned above, except to say:

    This is what happens when I use Quick Reply after cutting and pasting from Word. I'll have to remember not to do that again...

    Widow switches were any easy fix on my ’85. I just took them apart and cleaned the contacts with really fine wet-dry paper. No need for new ones.

    I believe General Motors owned SAAB at the time this car was made, so it was funny to find the connector to the reservoir had the "Ford" logo.

    I do really need to find a method to clean the...

    I took the opportunity to replace the coolant tank as it was leaking in at least three places. It looked so terrible I assumed it must be original, but I found a Scan Tech label underneath.

    I found this little plastic sleeve when I removed the seal. I put it back in so the reservoir's tube would fit through.

    Thanks SPG9 for the tip. That does sound like a good idea especially since the rubber lines are now 25 years old. In fact, I have yet to take the wheels off. I've only really looked at the brakes up...
