Tried to send this just to you, but I guess you don't want to be disturbed as the reply address is invalid. I work on Saabs in a Saab speciality independent shop. We offer parts to Internet customers at our cost +30%, 10% of which goes to support the Saab Network (http://www.warp.org/tsn.html) I have no idea of the exchange rate between Australia nor the shipping charges involved. If you could check that out and still want to proceed. let me know and we can get one coming your way. Weight would be about 3 lbs and be a box about 6X6X6 inches. Saab 900 water pump. Fits 81-93 900. Part number 8817900 $73.22 US Dealer here charges $160US labor. We charge $75US. I can do it blindfolded in 1/2 hour. If you are mechanical at all, it just unbolting, cleaning and reinstalling. I pull the ac compressor bracket and all off and move it out of the way to do the pump. Trick is to leave the lines on it and remove the belts from the alternator and slide the alternator all the way left to access the bottom bolt on the ac bracket. Move the ac to the right side of the engine while you do the pump.
