Am I wrong on this one. Any advice would be appreciated. > > Thanks. > > msheppynopsamspring.com You need to compress the clutch and install a ring in the pressure palte to get the slave out. On certain models you do not have to do this it depends on which type of release bearing you have. To remove the input shaft you will need to pull the front cover on the trans that is held on with a clip. Then install and 8mmX1.25 bolt int the input shaft with a washer and pop the input out. Ther are special Saab tools made to do this. I would recommend using a repair shop for this job becaus A. the slaves almost never go bad and B. the jod is a pain and you may consider doing a clutch at the same time. If you need any parts let us know. Rich -- FROM: PEERLESS AUTOMOTIVE WEB: http://www.carpart.net EMAIL: richnopsamart.net PHONE (610) 346-7250 FAX (610) 346-9417
