23.04.2005: Belt
Loosen the belt with a long 1/2" socket extension and lock the tensioner with a thin Allen key. Remove the belt from the steering pump pulley. This picture shows the airbox still in place, but it's actually better to remove it before starting on the pump. The airbox is secured by three 10 mm nuts.

Exhaust manifold removal and re-installation on the 1996 Saab 900 (4 cylinder turbo). The manifold had to come off because there were two broken studs on the driver side of the manifold. The gasket needed a replacement too.

  • two 13 mm wrenches: manifold, turbo and steering pump nuts;
  • 10 mm socket: air filter housing;
  • 7 mm socket: hose clamps;
