SOURCE: Not good.....replacing timing belt on saab

I'm certain that the camshaft pullies and probably the head have reference marks that must be aligned. I can't tell you how to set them however and I think you know that guessing could be very expensive.
Check you local library for a Haynes (1st choice) or Chilton service manual or, and I think everyone should own one for their vehicle, buy one. We have three different vehicles and each has its own manual. They are not only valuable for DIY stuff but also for judging the fairness of an estimate on a repair you don't want to do at home. They cost between $20-$30 US and considering what mistakes cost, that's cheap.

SOURCE: suggested replacement of timing belt for 1995 saab

Initially 30,000 then every 36,000. These engines are identified as "interference engines" meaning that engine damage is most likely to occur. What this means is as the cam stops tne crank continues to spin allowing the pistons to move up and down. All the valves do not close just because the cam stops thus resulting in bent valves.

When i first start my car theres a high pitched whining/whirring noise on saab 900s, what is that? starter problem or a belt or pulley?


The accessory belt idler pulley bearing is on the way out. Get it replaced. You will not be able to drive the car if it fails, since that belt drives the power steering, water pump, and the alternator.

94 saab v6 serp belt replacement. does motor mount


Yes, the motor mount must come off to replace the serpentine belt on the 3.0 6 cylinder motors. Not as daunting a task as it may seem, just requires a jack and block of wood under the oil pan to support the motor.

How to reattach serpentine belt on 1999 saab 9-3


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 conceivable way.
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 which you will use to lock the tensioner assembly into this position relaxing the belt. This site shows the proper routing of the stock belt and the routing procedure to bypass the highly failure prone center idler pulley if your car has that (yours should not), 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. See also, this site for additional information. Another diagram is here with part numbers for the pulleys and the belt.
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.

How do you loosen the serpentine belt


That wasn't right though. There is a 1/2 slot for a 1/2 inch breaker bar and when two holes are lined up you stick a drill bit or similar peice through to lock it in place till you get the belt routed then pull back alittle bit on the breaker bar to remove tension from the drill bit . Remove the drill bit and release tension on breaker bar and remove it to put tension on the belt.Then check alignment , positioning, routing of the belt visually.

Your Saab does not have a timing belt, it has a chain. You need to remove the chain tensioner and see how much it has extended. If it has plenty yet to go, your chain is fine to go more miles. If it is fully extended or nearly so, you are on borrowed time.
