Need help I have a saab 93 convertable 2.0 i non turbo 1998 model drive belt has gone dont know where to find the ajuster to put the belt on. And a diagrame to see how it goes on.Regards James.

Here is a link to a Dayco PDF file that will have a belt diagram for you. Find you car on the main page, fine the number to the diagram and thats how you belt routes. Depends on month of manufacture yours could have 2 guide or tensioner pulleys. Facing the engine, one should be the top left pulley, that one is common to all. The optional tensioner will be the next pulley to the right. If one is missing it may have fallen off and you may be able to run a shorter belt.

Power steering belt snapped on saab 900 1996 battery light on

hi, you have to repalce it soon because the power steering belt also moves your alternator, the battery light on means that there is no charge, hope this helps.

Having a problem with the belts on 1986 Saab.

There are four drive belts
  1. crankshaft to power steering pump
  2. crankshaft to a/c compressor belt idler pulley, to a/c compressor
  3. crankshaft to coolant pump, and
  4. crankshaft to alternator.
3 and 4 are side by side belts on the crankshaft, and each drive both the coolant pump and the alternator.
See this page for pictures of the belts, but I haven't a layout for them. The pulley grooves align for each of the different belts, so it shouldn't be too too difficult to figure out which is which.

1999 serpatine belt

Hi,the serpentine belt is tensioned automatically by means of a spring loaded tensioner,this is released by using a long 1/2 inch extension bar which fits into a square hole, once pulled back the tensioner can then be held by a nail etc, which is inserted into a hole which aligns with another hole,thus holding the tensioner back in a pre-loaded position to allow you to replace the belt,once replaced you can then pull back the extension bar to remove the nail again and then slowly let off the tension, IF replacing the tensioner, The new one comes pre-loaded with a pin in location to hold it ,hope this is of some help, Bill.

2.3 900 se fan belt

The Saab fan is electrically controlled directly via the ECU and has no belt. I will therefore assume you are referring to the accessory belt that drives the power steering pump, the alternator, AC, etc. Pictures and step by step instructions are here and here. Both of these sites are also demonstrating the use of a shorter belt to bypass a center idler pulley that fails frequently (and that was eliminated altogether by Saab in the transition from new generation 900s to the first iteration of the 9-3 model).
