Had the same type of problems with my 95 Saab 900. A bushing in the shifter linkage kept popping out. Found out after lots of frustration there was a new shifter linkage mechanism out for 94 to 97 Saabs that fixed this problem. Not sure if it relates. I found the part here:

There is problem in the gearbox.The sincronizers for a first & second gear are on the same gearswitch.Need to change them.Forget about the clutch.

I have a golf gt tdi and lately i am having problems getting it into reverse and first gear. It usually happens when the vehicle has been stood such as overnight


I would check the gearbox oil level. Also try lubricating the linkages. If you have high miles, it maybe the clutch is starting to go out. Do you have a lot of pedal when releasing the clutch?

My saab 9-3 has a gearbox problem, just in the last few days I can bearly get it into reverse and 1st and 2nd gears are not much better especially going from 3rd down to 2nd is almost impossible, any ideas...


is it an auto? if its a manual then its either your clutch, or gearbox does it make a crunching sound when going into gear? if it does then it's the clutch gone. careful driving it as you might damage the box

Bad syncro for third gear. Sorry, but you aren't fixing this one yourself, unless you replace the transmission yourself.

5 speed manual transmission. reverse will not engage


I had the same problem. A spring in the gear change selector had broken making it impossible to get into reverse and very difficult into first to fifth. Simple repair. Might be similar to your problem

1998 Saab 9000 ---My wife was driving through a roundabout when she shifted from 1st to 2nd gear the clutch lost all resistance and would not go back into any gear. I'm thinking I lost the slave cylindar...


You may have a bad slave cylinder, but if you do the system would leak. Sometimes the hose fails, and that also causes a leak. if there are no leaks, I would suspect the master cylinder.

I just bought this 1994 saab 900s and i cannot find which is first second thrird etc and reverese help me please


The shift pattern is standard 5 speed H: 1st is all the way up to the left, 2nd straight back and down from that, 3rd is up and slightly to the right of 1st, 4th is straight back and down from 3rd, 5th is up and all the way over to the right. Reverse has a reverse lock out collar under the shift knob that you grip with one finger on either side of the bottom of the knob and pull up while pulling back and all the way to the right.
