1. Replace your car tail light. You will need working
gloves to protect your hand during the process. Of course you will also
need a screwdriver, cleaning cloth, wire brush, and a good set of tail
2.Understand that different models of car have different set of tail light covers.
Naturally, these covers will require different un-installation
procedures. So, determine if you can dismount the cover from the outside
or you will have to dismount it from the trunk of the car.
3.Determine how to dismount the tail light cover, carefully detach it from the car.
You can use different sets of screwdrivers for this. Be careful not to
break the tail lights cover. The important thing is you must be able to
expose the bulb in order to extract it.
4.Remove the tail lights cover, unscrew the bulb from its socket. Sometimes you will have to press a little and twist the bulb in order to extract it from the socket.
5.Extract the bulb, bring it to your favorite auto parts and accessories store and find the exact match of your tail light bulb. Be sure to get the correct match because if you use other types of bulb, your tail lights may not work properly.
6.Reinstall the tail light bulb, clean the aluminum casing of the tail light. Wipe the socket and wiring with a dry cloth. You can use wire brush if there are corrosion around the tail light casing.
7.Put the good bulb on the socket. You might still need to apply a little pressure on the socket before you can install it fully.
8.Reinstall the tail light bulb, replace the cover of the tail lights and secure it tightly.
9.Test to make sure your new tail lights are working. Start the engine and apply the brakes. You can ask someone to see if the tail lights are really working.
Remove the tail light assembly screws, then the assembly.
Disconnect the twist lock socket from the lens housing.
NOTE: To remove the bulb, turn the twist lock socket (at the rear of the housing) counterclockwise 1?4 turn, then remove the socket with the bulb; replace the bulb if defective.

Depending on the overall condition of the engine, it could have worn or frozen rings, worn valve guides or the turbo you installed is worn out.
These are driven by exhaust pressure and if their bearings are worn, you may be getting a mix of compressed air from the turbo and oil that is seeping past the compressor's internal seals.
Hiya,Open your tailgate and you will see 2 plastic plugs on the light unit these are covering the 2 torx screws which are retaining the lamp unit remove these screws with the SAAB toolkit and you will be able to slide the unit out to replace your faulty bulb.
First you need to lift the hatch. There are two screws under plastic caps. Remove the caps and you will be able to unscrew these screws. Carefully using a flat screw driver to pry out the tail light assembly. It have to plastic pin that attached to the car body. do not break the pin. After you pry out the tail light assembly, you will be able to replace the light bulb. Replace everything in a reverse order.
Almost for sure the head gasket. You don't have to replace the engine, but pull the head, have it leveled, get a new gasket and head bolts and replace.
This can be done without removing the engine, but it is a bit tricky. Very tight getting the head off to the front. If you have done some mechanics, can be done. I have done this once. It did take a bit.
Please let me know if you still have the car and we can talk.
Could be a few other issues, but these are very rare. Cracked head, etc...
