Question about 1993 Saab 900
Take out two of the three bolts holding the bracket in place, and rotate the alternator and bracket enough to remove the long bolt.

Most of the time it is the brushes that wear out. The fix for this takes 5 min. and a stubby philips screw driver. The brush holder comes out through through the rear (exposed section) of the unit. Remove the two screws and replace with either a new carrier or bring it to a shop for brush removal and replacement.. One word of caution however, remove + battery cable whenever attempting this.

Are you sure its dead? i thought the same thing about my 1990 900S, but it turned out one of the wire connectors (the thing that youcrimp the wire into and then the connector snaps onto a place jutting out [think of the connector as a socket and the jutting out on the alternator as the cord to an appliance]) was disconnected and totally fried. All i did was buy new connectors at an autozone and stripped the wire then crimped the newly exposed wire into the connector. Saved me about a lot of money and was a simple and easy problem to fix. The sign i'd look for is a dingling wire that seemingly goes to nothing.
