Trionic 5 cars

Stage1-3

Although I do have out of the box stg4-6 tunes available. I highly recommend as the tuning levels climb past stage 3 that road tuning be done, there are so many variables and possible hazards that make every car different as they become more modified these things are best sorted out in person.

Trionic 7

Stage 1-3

Trionic 8

-17mm wrench
-19mm wrench
-22mm wrench
-10mm socket OR torx bit set.
-jack and jack stands.
-Fluid pan

-Jack up rear passengers corner of the car, place securely on jack-stands
-directly in front of the rear wheel, you will see this cover, remove it     http://saabrepairguide.com/files/2012/07/saab9000_fuel-filter-location.jpg
-the fuel filter is held in by a band that wraps around the filter, DO NOT remove at this time
-place fluid pickup pan under filter
- place 22mm wrench on the fuel filter, hold securely
- loosen both banjo bolts on either side of the fuel filter. Make sure use the 22 mm wrench to keep the filter stable, if you twist the filter to far in either direction, you risk breaking a line, or holding clamp.
-remove clamp, this clamp is a 10mm bolt on newer Saabs, and a torx on older (9000/900) cars
-finish removing banjo bolts, let fluid drip into pan.
-inspect crush washers for sealing surface, replace if questionable.
-align fuel filter with arrow facing the front of the car
-align holding strap onto filter
- finger-tight in banjo bolts with crust washers on either side of banjo bolt to make secure sealing surfaces.
- clamp fuel filter onto car
-tighten banjo bolts, hold the filter with 22mm wrench
-re-secure cover

Start the car! Note that the car could take a few cranks to start after fuel filter install, the fuel system is depressurized, and usually takes 2-4 cranks to fire back up again.

Watch the fuel filter area for 2-5 minutes of idle time. Keeping a close eye out for leaks.

Done!
