09.10.2005: Snap ring
The compressor housing is secured with a big snap ring, you need large pliers for that.

This Garrett T25 turbo is found on 1991-1998 Saab 9000, 1994-1998 Saab 900 and 1999 Saab 9-3. There are certain differences between the models, but the cores are almost identical, so you might find this useful even if your unit is somehow different from those pictured. The goal of this job was to rebuild a turbocharger using new seals and bearings from a service kit.

Tools and supplies:

  • 14 mm six-point socket (turbine end nut);
  • 13 mm spanner wrench (exhaust housing bolts);
  • 10 mm wrench (wastegate actuator);
  • 8 mm twelve-point socket, did without it (compressor wheel nut);
  • Torx T15 screwdriver (thrust bearing);
  • small torque wrench with an inch-lbs scale;
  • large and small snap ring pliers;
  • gear puller;
  • engine oil;
  • degreaser and cleaning supplies.
