91 Saab 900 keeps dying *****cont'd*******

If things are clicking, flashing, flickering and dimming at random then you have a short or a grounding issue. Also, if your battery isn't keeping a charge you should have it tested. If it were my vehicle and I just spent $800 on an alternator and labor I would want to see 14amps coming from my battery and alt. combined.

My 96 900S Convertible won't operate, the main motor in right rear side of the trunk activates, but the bar that connects to the tonneau cover is twisted, as if the tonneau cover motors are cooked? Any...

You could check the top latch position sensor and convertible top control module....if the motors are fried replacing them is very expensive....

Loosen shift coupler where you disconnected from rod.Remove shift boot at front there is a hole put an allen or dowell in it to lock the shifter on trans side where shift rod exits tranny theres another hole for a pin. Line these up and tighten coupler and that should do it.

How do i remove the alternator from a 97 saab 900

You do not have to remove the wheel unless you have th 6 cylinder engine (2.3l). Then yes you do:

Disconnect Negative Battery Cable
Remove the air cleaner and hose from between the air breather/cleaner and throttle housing
Relax the belt tensioner off the belt and pry off the belt
Remove the right front wheel, black belt cover/protector, and the wheel hub nut and slide the hub off the drive shaft/outer Cv joint
Disconnect the alternator, remove the alternator/air intake hose, 2 bolts that hold the alternator in and remove it through right-hand wheel housing.

Yes, this is immensely annoying. I hope you figured it out...
