10.10.2005: Turbo hoses
Remove the intercooler hose from the compressor housing. Unhook the BPC hoses. Unbolt the turbo inlet pipe. On T25+B204L, you might need to remove the brass BPC hose nipple to gain the access to an inlet pipe bolt.

Garrett T25 turbocharger replacement performed on a 1996 Saab 900. The procedure is more or less similar for all Saabs using the B204-B235 engine families. Use new copper crush washers for all banjo bolts. It is also a good idea to get a new oil feed line, or at least clean the old one from sludge and deposits.

This article describes replacing a stock turbocharger with another OEM unit. For upgrade information, refer to this document.

  • 13 mm wrench and socket (downpipe and turbo nuts);
