Subject: Re: Sparkplug replacement on 96 900 SET?


"Is there more to this than meets the eye?" in a word, no. easy, just like replacing regular plugs. just absolutely make sure to stick with the NGK plugs that are for your car. apparently other ones can do bad, bad things. and considering the cost of a new DI casette, you don't wanna be messing with it. bcpr7es for lots of highway use and bcpr6es11 (don't totally rely on me for those numbers, but i think they're right...) for more city driving. i think that Saab says to use the 7es, but i've been told that if you drive a lot of city kms, the 6es is the one to use because it's a hotter plug and that reduces carbon buildup. make sure you have compressed air or whatever to blow dust and crap out of the plug recesses before you remove the old ones so that dirt doesn't fall into the combustion chamber (it's pretty deep). put the new ones in, some dielectric grease on the tips and you're on your way. have fun., dave
