I'd appreciate it. > Might be easier to see underneith the front of the car on a 9000, but if you can locate the wastegate actuator, there is a long thin threaded rod that slips onto a small arm on the turbo body shell underneath the turbo body. Not sure of the exact layout, as I've only ever owned Ca 900 Have a google for the 9000 turbo system, if you can find it, the Townsend Saab Master site is good, and has illustrations. When the rod comes of, it literally slips off the small arm. Just needs to be relocated to test it, but can fall off again, as it needs a new Circlip/E clip (e-clips are easier to fit) and ideally an R clip through the small hole in the arm (like the pin on the the brake calipers). -- Carl Robson (The poster formerly known as Skodapilot)
