Question about 1995 Saab 900
I have just bought a saab 900s on a 95plate its a very clean car with just over 77,500 on the clock, its my first saab. The clutch operation ie pushing the clutch in to change gear feels very heavy is this normal for this car, or do I need to be checking out the clutch, everything appears to work ok the gears engage smothly and the gear shift feels good.
Unfortunately, this model uses a clutch cable. The internal shaft (in the bell housing) eventually suffers from galling and crud accumulation. This puts enormous strain on the cable which may even break. The cable is self-adjusting but occasionally may need a little manual help. If you undo the nut (far lower right side of the box in American cars) and the clips holding the fuse box to the firewall you can lift it aside and see the cable where it exits the firewall. Grasp the large spring that surrounds the sheath and gently tug upwards. You should hear a click or two or three as the adjusting ratcheting mechanism operates. If you do not, tug a little more forcefully, but do not **** the cable as you can cause the ratcheting mechanism to fail. You will now have less free play of the clutch pedal and easier operation of the clutch. Order a new cable now and carry it in your trunk. You will be needing it soon.
