My clutch is slipping so in first gear I have no acceleration and then after flooring it a bit I finally get going its 1996 saab 900s is that a clutch cable or a clutch itself

you need a new clutch, try this, apply the brake,, and try moving the car , normally when increasing the rpm's a motor (and good clutch) will win out every time, if you can raise the rpm's and it still stalls out you have other issues, But My bet would be you need a clutch replacement

How hard is it to put a clutch in a 1995 saab 900s

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...

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.

96 Saab 900 Clutch Cable: Manual vs Self-Adjusting

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
