AutoScandia post tips in their waiting room. One of them was for 900 5-sp manuals. They said that if you hear a kluck or grinding noise when you put it into reverse ( to remove the ignition key), you are damaging the transmission. They recommend that you put it 3rd, then reverse - it works! No klunk or grinding! They also give out business cards to remind parking attendents to put the transmission in reverse before removing the ignition key. It seems they have been repairing more than few Saabs because of this problem.
