It doesn't usually happen to 3rd gear, but I've had the same problems in 2nd gear, and that meant a tranny rebuild - a job I certainly wouldn't tackle myself... > My overdrive doesn't engage and windshield washer doesn't work too...that > reminds me...how in the hell do you take off the lower driver's-side dash > cover so that I can access the overdrive pump.

The knee bolster ("lower padded dash") is one piece and stretches across the car. You need to remove the lower center console, and remove two 10mm bolts in the engine compartment inside the fender walls, as well as a single hex (15mm? maybe 13mm) where the ashtray in the center console would have been.... Takes about ten minutes. If you need assistance, lemme know... the interior is one aspect of a Saab I can take apart with my eyes shut... ;)
