You take all the center console and plastic ducts from between the seats. There are 4 10mm bolts holding the shifter mechanism to the floor. Take these off and do your best to flip the whole housing to where you can access the bottom side. The ignition switch is attached under there. As I recall there are 2 T20 screws holding it on.

SOURCE: How do I change the
The Saab accessory drive (serpentine) belt is self-tensioning by means of a
tensioning pulley. Excessive play means that the current belt is
spent and must be replaced. It is a very good idea to replace the idler
pulley above the tensioner pulley at this time as the bearings fail over time. You can get an
aftermarket pulley of machined billet aluminum construction with a
repalceable bearing race from Wazee Pulleys.
This pulley is superior to the stock one in just about every
To remove the belt you will need a 1/2 inch socket extension bar that will fit exactly in the top of the tensioning pulley housing and a six mm allen key. This site shows the proper routing of the stock belt and the routing procedure to bypass the highly failure prone center idler pulley if you so elect, as well as the procedure to remove and fit a new belt. Note, the belts shown on this site are for the short-belt modification only. The stock replacement belt is Part Code: 4904728 Brand:
Description: Serpentine belt for any 94-98 NG 900 4cyl. Price: $35.90 at Eeuroparts.com.
To remove the belt, you will find it best to remove the airbox to allow you more room at the top end to work. Also, jack up the car and remove the passenger wheel to give you access down below.

I'm afraid if you don't have the code, you will have to take it to a local dealer or specialist radio store to have it re-coded.
Fortunately, it's not expensive.

SOURCE: what type of oil on 97 saab 900
If turbo in a temperate climate, use 0W40 or 5W40 synth for year round protection. If naturally aspirated, you can use the same or 5W30. If you live a particularly hot climate, 10W40 will work just fine too, and you might even be well off to go to 10W50, at least in the hottest months. Turbos generate a lot of extra heat which contributes to quick long chain molecule shear down in multi- viscosity oils. Accordingly, a 40 wt oil will quickly thin down to something more like a 30 weight oil. Oil pressure in these cars is marginal at idle, so keeping a close eye on good viscosity is pretty important, as that helps keep pressure up.
