So after you've removed absolutely everything off of the front of the engine, the timing cover comes off fairly easy. The main trick is to get the oil pan low enough so you can reseal it with 518 anaerobic sealant.And then put the anaerobic sealant on both sides of the head gasket when you put the timing cover back on . Very important to let it dry overnight.And then fingers crossed hopefully you don't have any leaks.this information comes from a actual Saab mechanic and this is how they do it in their shop. It's important everybody understands this is when removing the head is not an option. Some people cannot afford a complete teardown and disassemble. I hope this helps the next person that has to tackle this problem. Good luck.
