    1996 900SE Turbo: Transmission Replacement

    I am purchasing a used 5spd turbo transmission from a donor car. I plan on doing the work myself. I am curious if there are any detailed guides or homemade step by steps for this procedure? Images would be great! I am stoked to get this repair done and start driving my baby again!
    I need to remove my transmission and replace it.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thank you!

    Dmitry Platonoff has some great guides over on his site.

    Removal: 21.01.2006: Saab NG900 Manual Transmission Removal - photo.platonoff.com
    Installation: 11.02.2006: Saab NG900 Manual Transmission Installation - photo.platonoff.com

    I've done essentially the same process myself too for a clutch replacement and conversion from cable-actuated to hydraulic. If you are doing a hydraulic conversion as well, be ready to bleed the system -- a pressure bleeder such as one from Motive or a homemade equivalent is the best option imo.
