Removing the alternator isn't the easiest job on this car!

The long bot that allows the alternator to pivot to adjust belt tension ISN'T the bolt to be removed; remove the two bolts that hold the mounting bracket to the engine block. One is at the end of the alternator (away from the belt), the other is above the end of the adjusting bolt, not far away from the first bolt. Take the tension off the belt, then slacken the two bolts holding the bracket to the engine block.

While you have the alternator off, check the bushings of the tension adjusting bolt; if worn/sloppy they should be pressed out and replaced; it'll extend the life of the alternator bearings.

I need he code for my radio,,,saab 1988 somebody helpme

First thing you have to do is remove the radio from the dash. If you are lucky, someone wrote it right on it but that's usually not the case. With radio in hand, call a saab dealership and they can tell you. Don't expect to get the code for free though, unless you get in touch with a kind dealership.

1993 Saab 900 - need to change the clutch

You can change the clutch yourself, if your pretty mechanical. It's at the front of the engine, so you don't remove engine or trans. However, you'll need to remove the hood, as it's much easier to work from the front with it off, and the left rad fan as it's in the way. Might remove rad if you want lots of space!The best source of info on this car is the "Bentley Bible" aka the Saab 900 Official Service Manual, costs about $40 from Amazon!16 valve manual: valve manual : the appropriate manual for your car and enjoy the Saab!If this helps, please give a "thumbs up", thankssaabreur
