Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

and the fuel injection, suspension, and couple of other little things, it's just like a 9-3SS. IIRC it uses a 15mm drain plug with a rubber washer: standard GM fare. You can get new washers from Saab, eEuroparts, and possibly a GM dealer, or in bulk (I doubt you'll need that many) from Sherco Parts. The local auto parts stores will have new drain plugs, but no rubber washers. They are good for several oil change cycles.

The other tool you'll need is the oil filter housing removal tool. I think it's a 32mm socket. Unless you already have a tool kit suitable for repairing bridges. The oil change socket is designed for the couple of dozen ft lbs. the application requires, as opposed to a real live 32 mm socket designed for several hundred ft. lb.

Other than that, it's open the hood, pull the oil filter, raise the lift (or jack up the car, or slide under it), drain the oil, replace the drain plug (25 ft. lb.), lower the lift (or crawl out from under), replace the filter, pour in the oil, start the engine and check for leaks.
