10.10.2005: Inlet pipe
Remove the turbo inlet pipe together with the metal PCV line (there are newer versions that allow you to unbolt the PCV line from the inlet pipe instead). Undo the nuts connecting the turbo to the exhaust manifold and pull the turbo down.

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.

Tools and supplies:

  • 13 mm wrench and socket (downpipe and turbo nuts);
  • 12 mm wrench and socket (banjo bolts);
  • 10 mm wrench (turbo inlet pipe);
