I've not tried that in the 9-5, and having spent the day working on mine, can't imagine the logistics and geometry to get the tranny out without the whole subframe. I do know that in the Saab 99 and 900, it's possible to do one but not the other but it's not worth the trouble. Things are easier to get at when there's not a car in the way. >
