Subject: Re: FAQ:  Help needed in replacing clutch in a 88 900

On 27 Feb 2000 19:15:03 GMT, while taking a pause from shopping for shruberies, brtbjnopsamcom (BRTbj) found a trusty envelope and scribbled: >88' 900 Clutch! Presume your talking 16V. Tranny must be removed to perform >removal. If NOT familiar with SAAB triats/quirks beware!! If 8v task is simpler >but, special tool to remove clutch will simplify.... We checked out and found the car is actually a 1985. It seems my friend was a bit confused about what he had. Anyway, we did take it out. Another friend of mine who had one of those beasts suggested to use a properly cut v-belt because its shape helps work it into the pressure plate fingers. So, clutch was replaced. On saturday, friend #1 put clutch back and had his roomate pump the pedal to move slave cylinder ram as close to the pressed fingers as possible before removing the v-belt. Unfortunately, roomate got overly excited and managed to have the cylinder seal pop. As a result, some of that seal is now hanging outside the cylinder while the ram is stuck in its fully extended position. We tried convincing the ram to back out so we can take slave cylinder out and replace the gasket without much luck. It does feel a bit on the stuck side. What would you people suggest doing next? --------------------------------------------------------------------- WARNING: if replying to this email, use the address below.
