well I have to throw in my two cents. The life of a clutch ... any clutch is highly dependent upon the driver and the conditions in which he/she drives, so I will side step that one. as another data point I will say that my clutch (84 900 turbo) was replaced at 180k. I feel that a careful driver does not have to worry (too much) about the clutch itself, however over time the hydraulic system will fail. It is my experience that the hydraulics in a saab 900 will fail somewhre around 110k - 130k. At this point the brake componets are deterioating. You will replace the master cylinder, and the calipers. around 160k or 170k the clutch hydraulics will fail ... the slave cylinder seems to be the weak point here, as well as the clutch master and even the hydraulic line from the master to the slave. bob c * Sent from RemarQ http://www.remarq.com The Internet's Discussion Network *The fastest and easiest way to search and participate in Usenet - Free!
