You may want to check and see if they changed the fluid when the clutch was changed and what fluid they filled it with. Also I did not see what year your car is there were 2 bulletins that could apply to your car. If you go the Nick's site (genuinesaab.com) you can find the bulletins one is for update kit for 9-3 and 9-5 transmissions and the other is for new manual transmission fluid. These may apply to your car. The "blocking" of 5th gear is one fault fixed with the update kit. But once the fluid update was released it often fixed the issues addressed with the update kit. Before the fluid change I was rebuilding a gearbox every other week after the the fluid change I was rebuilding a gearbox every other month or 2. Good Luck, Bernie
