It's like I said when you first posted; the 900i is a breeze to get to the clutch, but once you add a turbo, you've an hours work getting the pipes off. But, you wouldn't listen :) I was speaking to one of my wife's work colleagues at a party recently - she had a 900i and after a clutch failure on a long haul, had a replacement done at the side of the road by a nearby garage (they even didn't bother towing) in about 20 minutes. Any reputable garage should be able to find and fix the problem. Good luck with it mate. Paul 1989 900 Turbo S http://saab.go.dyndns.org/
