How do you remove an Ignition Lock Cylinder from a 91 saab 900s

Option A
  1. remove driver side seat
  2. insert the key and turn to midway between "lock" and "accessories" position,
  3. push stiff wire tool such as metal coat hanger, into the hole in the side of the gear housing at the ignition lock, to push in the spring loaded pin in the housing
  4. while pushing on the pin, pull out on the key to remove the cylinder
  5. to re-assemble, reverse the procedure; check that the tooth segment driver pins in the gear lever housing are in the correct position to receive the new cylinder
  6. push in the spring again, and insert the cylinder until it clicks

Option B
  1. Cut down a spare key so that it's about 1.5 inch long measured from the tip, and has no lobes.
  2. unscrew the console: two screws under the shifter boot, two screws in the rear base visible after removing the ashtray.
  3. insert the key in the ignition, turn to "run", put shifter in neutral.
  4. lift console up on shifter lever, if necessary you can undo the three Torx T25 bolts holding shifter into base and lift it out, to completely remove the console.
  5. undo the gear lever housing nuts, needs a special Saab tool but you can make one yourself, it just has three tabs equidistantly spaced - here's a pic, 13c7448.jpegfrom saabcentral forums
  6. remove the lever housing, place in a vice, and follow Option A above.

1986 s10 4x4,transfer case,loose manual shifter

theres locking pins that hold it in gear that kind of resemble a door latches it`s my guess that there springs are no good and they just are staying open allowing it to slip back out of gear.

I am unable to get my 2001 spectre into gear. I

If it has a center console inside the center console is a shift interlock solenoid which when the brake pedal is depressed sends a voltage signal to the shift interlock solenoid which then unlocks the shifter allowing you to shift it. It may be bad look into it. You can also manually unlock the shifter by pulling the small plug on the console next to the shifter then sticking a screwdriver down in there far enough to un lock the shifter they made that for this reason.

1997 pontiac sunfire manual transmission won't shift out of gear.

What you can try is to remove the shift cables from the transmission side. then move the shifter and see if everything is free if it's still sticks then the cables are going to be replaced. if everything is moving with the cable off. then you need to remove the shift tower on the tranny (where the shift cable is I belive it's 5 bolts) remove the tower and you will see the shift pin. Inside the tower there is a cotter pin that breaks and that will cause you to have one gear and unable to selected another gear. If you are not mech inclined I would no attemped the shift tower repaire, the cables do it will save you money. The shift tower has bushings that can fall into the tranny.

Hello, 1986 Toyota 4X4 Truck 22R carb engine manual transmission. My son was driving it and the rear wheels locked up. Driving in 2 High mode. He got the truck pulled over to the side of the road using 4X4...

I've seen a similar issue on other transmissions where the shifter slips out of the slots in the shift forks, either due to shifter bushing wear or just general wear on tte trans. It can usually be remedied at least temporarily by popping the shifter top off the trans and resetting the forks all back to nuetral and then reinserting the shifter. It gets jammed when two forks are trying to engage two different gear sets.
On one of the 4x4 sites, they tell you how to replace the shifter bushings, cheap fix if you are lucky.
Good luck.

Shifter is loose. Bolt or pin fell out of bottom, only have one gear.

when this happend to me i still had all gears. there is no pin or bolt, the shifter is held in place with epoxy and pressure.. its ****, total ****. i suggest looking at the pdf service manuals on and re-building the area that holds the shifter in place. this involves removing the shifter head and leather-ish boot around it (may as well clean it while you've got it off) and then pulling the shifter up into place. then from the underside of the car, inserting some epoxy and or reinforcement brackets (to make it stronger than it originally was) to hold it in place. i used two pieces of 1/8th thick aluminium underneath the little tabs that were originaly glued/pressured into place.

please note the manuals on techcapri are for the 91-93 modles our 94 modle is slightly different, but the manual is still very helpful for identifying parts and how to get at them.
