This is the problem I have with Haynes manuals - lovely close up photos, but without an overview diagram I've no clue where to start looking. No doubt it's just me being pathetic, but I can't relate anything in the pictures to what I see in the car! (And before some wag asks, both car and manual ARE Saab 9000!)

In case it helps, I've taken a few pictures under the bonnet and uploaded top my webspace at Thanks in advance Adrian "Johannes H Andersen" <> wrote in message > > > Lineone wrote: > > > > Danny, > > > > Oh yes: Can anyone advise how to access the idle control valve? > > > > If you have Haynes, there is a pic on page 4A.13 .
