No reverse for 1995 Saab 900s

I am not able to put my stick in reverse. I have already had the clutch kit and clutch cable replaced in May of 2007 and even after, I had a hard time reversing. It would pop out of gear or grind. At this point, I am no longer able to even put it into reverse. I have been told without it being inspected that it could be the rods or simply need adjusting because the other gears are fine

This may very well be the shifting linkage assembly which may have gotten bent at some time. You can adjust this yourself by removing the center console and making the adjustment there. You also may contact anyone other than a dealer to install the new shifting linkage mechanism. The cost for this part is anywhere from $ 175 - 285.00. Good luck.

This is almost certainly the case. The gears selector on the gearbox is worked by rods connected to the gear lever and minor mispositioning (often when you have had a clutch change) will cause this issue. Reverse always seems to be affected most by this issue. You might be aboe to fix it yourself, but without a little knowledge you could of course make it worse. I wouldn't spend out on a SAAB dealership to fix this though, a confident and competent local mechanic will probably sort it out for you at a much reduced cost.

Reverse not working in my 1995 saab a week after the clutch was


Standard tranny's are pretty simple. Sounds like some of the linkage came unconnected. Take it back to whoever replaced the clutch and have them repair the problem. They apparently didn't put it back together right. You have to disconnect the linkage to pull the transmission to replace the clutch.

You may find that this job is quite difficult as the transmission needs to come out, drive shafts, shifter, etc. Not a task for a novice, fairly complicated...

Loosen shift coupler where you disconnected from rod.Remove shift boot at front there is a hole put an allen or dowell in it to lock the shifter on trans side where shift rod exits tranny theres another hole for a pin. Line these up and tighten coupler and that should do it.

How to relace clutch cable on 1995 saab se 900 turboon saab 900se


1. Remove the battery.
2. Remove the clutch cable end from the clutch arm end at the wire stop.
3. Slide out the rubber doughnut from the gearbox housing which holds the clutch cable
4. Move the distribution box nut and the alarm pin attached to it (some modules)
5. Disconnect the clutch cable holder from the fender and the data link holder.
6. Remove the drivers lower panel below the steering wheel and remove the air duct as well as the knee shield.
7. Slide out the fuse box holder and ICE Box (should be a black box with many wires going to it). You can remove the instrument cluster at this point but you can also do this without removing the cluster with a little patience
8. Move the pedal spring to one side and remove the eye catch for the cable.
9. Remove the clutch cable by pulling it out from the engine compartment
10. Reinstall in the reverse. Saab actually came out with a bulletin which Needed one to install two washers at the back of the new cable instead of one. The factory cable comes with one but you can remove the 2nd washer off the old cable and install it on the new cable so two exist. This helps take up excessive pedal slack.

CHECHING OIL LEVEL ON 1995 SAAB 900S


The dip stick end is a plastic square piece with two roundish bulbs on each end. The oil level should read just at the bottom of the top bulb (the bulb nearest the yellow cap at the top end of the dip stick). This indicates full.

Heavy clutch pedal operation


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.
