Anything is possible. Grab a Haynes manual and see what the procedure is. I suppose once you have the throttle in bits, replacing any faulty parts would be a lot easier. Better than replacing the whole thing and I'm sure there are people here who will know how to test each part. > Do > you have cheap used parts over there I could ship to England? Buh! Now I'm confused :) I'm over here in Blighty, too. If you can give us an idea of what model your car is and where you are in the country, people will be able to point you to nearby SAAB Specialists which would no doubt give a different price, if you know what I mean :) Paul 1989 900 Turbo S http://saab.go.dyndns.org/
