Everything has to come off the front of the engine. That's the easy part. Setting the timing is the most important part. You really need a manual for this job. And follow the manual when resetting the timing. If the water pump is in there also, replace it. You only want to do this one time.
WHile anything is possible, it's not practical. In general, you'll find many of the mounting locations are different for the transmission and AWD case, the computer tune is different, and most importantly, setting up the linkage will be prohibitively expensive.
IF you're thinking of this because you really like the control of a manual, you're better off just finding a manual version of the car.
If you're thinking of this because the automatic transmission is dead and you have access to a free manual, it'll still be cheaper to pay the $3500 or so to have the current automatic repaired or replaced with another.
you need the repair manual from the car maker ,The torque values are really important .I wouldn't be looking for those values here . It would be a shame to blow those gaskets again because the info may be off just a little .
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: http://www.amazon.com/Saab-900-Valve-Service-Manual/dp/08376031378 valve manual :http://www.amazon.com/Eight-Official-Service-Manual-1981-1988/dp/0837603102get the appropriate manual for your car and enjoy the Saab!If this helps, please give a "thumbs up", thankssaabreur
