Tyres should be 195/60 R15 all round. 35-40 quid will buy you cheap Hankooks, which are OK. The window problem could just be the mech needs greasing. Seat belt warning bulb can be got at if you remove the radio. Brake pads, about 20quid if you DIY, get a Haynes manual, its a pretty straight forward job. Same for the cam-cover gasket, costs around 20 for the gaskets. Saab parts arn't really expensive, try Highgate Saab Also any motor factor can get things like brake discs and pads. chris "Jeff Knight" <> wrote in message news:pAq07.8870$ > Hi > > I've just bought a 2 door 1991 Saab Turbo 16 Valve Manual.
