25.03.2005: Locking pin
Insert a second pin to lock the rod position. Tighten the nut on the clamp to 15.5 ft-lbs. Remove the locking pin from the transmission and plug the hole. Remove the pin from the shifter housing. Test the gearshift operation.

Shifter linkage alignment on a 1996 Saab 900 (should work for all 1994-2002 NG900/9-3 models). This procedure can cure the rubbery feel of the shifter, the difficulty to engage certain gears.


  • 13 mm socket;
