    '03 9-5 Aero Manual Gearbox Leak

    I seems I have a manual gearbox leak. I've changed my manual gearbox fluid according to the instructions, but it appears that I have a slow leak.
    I've read that the shift linkage bushing can be a source of the leak. Has anyone had to deal with this type of leak? Or is there a Saab WIS regarding
    the procedure to replace that bushing on the gearbox. My car is an '03 9-5 Aero Wagon, Manual B235R 4 cyl....thanks

    I've seen the shift shaft seal that you're talking about leaking on a lot of manual 9-5 Aeros, I'd highly recommend having a dealer/good indy Saab tech replace it. It's not a fun job. I've also seen a few instances where the transmission case halves will start to leak which usually results in pulling the trans out of the car, splitting it open and re-sealing it. That can be a slippery slope because you'll be stricken with the "as long as I'm in here, what else can I fix?" syndrome.

    Thanks Brad, That's the second time I've heard that the shaft seal is just to hard to get to and should be done by a dealer or Indy. Funny that my shaft seal didn't leak until I replace the gear oil.....
