The right tool for the job ... - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
This works great, no fuss. You have to remove the wire for the alternator output and the thin wire. Very easy to get the inner screw out then. Got the set on Amazon, $15.

The good news was the rear most brush was way worn. The bad that the slip rings are pretty grooved. I guess I already bought the regulator, so just stick it in and plan on a short life for the brushes. Not so easy to get the new regulator in place but I did see some tricks with dental floss would help.
Car is a 1993 Turbo at 125K, sure seemed that just a voltage reg would do it at this mileage. I think on balance just pulling the alternator to start with would have been a better plan, in case that helps anyone else.
