It could be as simple as only the friction disk within the clutch, which is exactly the same amount of work as doing the entire clutch but is less expensive. You do want to fix it before it starts slipping, because once it does that you'll start "blueing" the flywheel and pressure plate - overheating the metal to the point where you have to replace them as well. Me, I'd wait for a *little* slip, but once you feel it, act fast to get the bad part(s) replaced. You may not know what needs doing until you get inside, and it's not a trivial job. If you're not very comfortable with fairly heavy-duty car work, it'd probably be better to have a Saab mechanic do this one (not your corner garage). Dave Hinz
