Subject: Re: Umm...where is my Oil Filter?

FWIW, Saab fitlers are a dark/royal blue with white type, placed in front (forward of) the oil pan. The drain plug/bolt head is either 13mm or 14mm. When loosening the drain plug look for a cooper compression washer; save that washer for re-use or get a new one; just be sure to use a washer. Also, try to use a six point/sided socket; twelve points can easily slip then strip the plugs head. And if you haven't bought a set of car ramps, splurg on a $25.00USD set when you buy the oil (semi-synth or synth) and filter. And as chores go, this is usually a 2 beer job :o) -- J.Harris '01 9-3SE '97 900SE '88 9000T (R.I.P.)
