Re: Manual Transmission Filter uh was the 03 trans from a vert ? - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Take Justin's advice... no foreign chemical flushes. Bad idea. If the mtf 0063 won't clean it out, nothing else will help it.
I'd drain the fluid with it out of the car and see what it looks like. An '03 will have MTF 0063. It might be a little non-red (orig color) but it should look pretty good if it was only running from '03 to '08. If it looks good, just refill with MTF0063 after you install, maybe do one flush change with the same. If it looks bad, as in rusty or black, I'd consider the viability of the transmission... but if you use it, still just use MTF0063 - do a double flush once it's mounted per the TSB at Genuine Saab.
