I just finished a fuel pump replacement on my 1990 900 turbo convertible. I used a new factory SAAB pump. This is an updated version compared to what was currently installed. It has these snap clips molded into the inlet and outlet that hold the two elbows on, which is different than the old pump. The old pump had a retainer that unscrewed and left the two elbows exposed.

I see for NG900 and 9-3 this: SAAB Fuel Line Retainer Clip 12806113

Should I have installed it? Is there a Service Information Supplement that mentions it? The screw between the inlet and outlet on the new pump has anti-tamper red gunk on it. Now that the job is done and I'm reflecting on it, those snap clips seemed sketchy.

Some notes on the job:
The new pump comes with 2 o-rings, not 4. So I had to buy 2 more o-rings since the inlet and outlet elbows use 2 o-rings each.
The pump instructions mention a replacement non-return valve for the inlet, but the pump did not include it.
The new pump comes with an integrated fuel sender - the float and arm are removed for C900. The included instructions mention it, but the SI 10/90-0032 has a better description for removing it.
The new pump came with a new retaining ring and corresponding o-ring.
My tank had the alignment mark horizontal, pointing at the fuel sender roughly. This is different than the Bentley description which might be for an earlier model.
I bought the special tool, CTA Tools 3700. I think it would be difficult to do this without it. Plus the spec is 40 ft-lbs which is pretty tight, and the special tool made that easy.
