Just replaced clutch operates in all gears fine 99% of timebut when stationary ( at road junctions ) the clutch disengages and the engine revs-- OK in reverse . when left for over 10 minutes corrects itself. computer has been reprogrammed absolute mystery ...... baffling in the extreme ........ any suggestions ? would be most grateful if anyone can shed light on it. Best regardsPV

Re: Saab 900SE 2.0T sensonic clutch / gear problem
It's possible that your clutch needs bled and/or have the fluid level checked in the clutch reservoir. The only other thing I can think of that would cause the problem that you're explaining would be that perhaps your throw-out bearing is starting to slip or maybe your pedal isn't auto-adjusting properly. Not too much more that could be causing the problem you described. Hope this helps and have a great day!

Hi,i have a 900 with the b204i, i had the same problem, the clutch was dead at my car and the gerabox oil was black like the road. saab bring later a new oil for gearboxes 80W-90 fully synthetic, i give my saab this oil ad a new clutch kit and the problems were away, and after 1000 kilometres the gear switching was very easier as before! sorry for the bad english. best wishes from germany!
just get the manually adjustable one. I just replaced mine today and I have a 96 900SE. the new clutch feels better and you only have to adjust it when the pedal has alot of "slack". that means that the pedal can be depressed about and inch before it starts operating the cable. anything more than an inch needs adjustment
maybe has a broken linkage or the bolt came lose.
Check if you can engage hall the gears pushing the linkage by hand,engine ranning and same one pressing the clutch!that way you can have same idea wath is wrong?!
i would have it converted to a regular 5 speed not very hard to do and parts are reletivley inexpensive used, you will need a clutch pedal assembly and a gearbox out of a 96-01 saab 9-3 with all the clutch lines and then its a matter of changing out a few plugs to trick the comuter, there is a write up on this if you are interested will save you lots of headaches down the road -jeff
