25.03.2005: Shifter
Pull the gear lever boot up. Move the lever to align the hole in the linkage rod with the hole in the shifter housing. Be careful as moving the shifter into the third gear position will completely disconnect the rod from the linkage.

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.
