The Workshop archive for procedures

Welcome to the procedures archive, where we post past procedures. Our procedures page often covers jobs of all types that require attention during everyday running. At the time of writing (August 2010) the procedures page is growing to a respectable size but considerable additional information is held for which we do not have photographs. We have the SAAB Parts, Accessories and Workshop Information Systems (NG900, 9400, 9440, 9600) plus SAAB Service Bulletins to fall back on but these cannot be reproduced here for copyright reasons. As ever, if you need advice, e-mail the author!

There are very few jobs that we haven't undertaken at some time in the last 10 years and we have dismantled examples of ALL models to the extent that once, when the remains were despatched to our local metal recyclers, the author was amazed to be told that he had left something on the completely stripped shell - the paint!

This site is all about sharing knowledge and the goal is to provide a range of procedural information that can help everyone from the novice to the seasoned DIY fanatic but even if you never intend to get your hands dirty, by reading about repairs, you will gain valuable insight into your own car's construction and maintenance needs.
