You don't specify a year, but I will presume you mean the Classic 900 (1979-93). The '79-'80 models had the B engine with the water pump in the engine block. The H engine (8-valve) and B202 (16-valve) have the water pump mounted at the front of the engine, near the firewall (Saab engines are installed reverse of most cars). Most manuals specify removing the air conditioning compressor to access the water pump, but it can be replaced without that step.

1) Loosen the drive belts by loosening the alternator. 2) Remove the pulley on the water pump. 4 10mm bolts. 3) Remove the water pump. 4) Install new gasket and new water pump. Use only a water pump with a cast impeller, not one with a pressed steel impeller. The latter does not provide proper flow for cooling. 5) Install the pulley, install the belts, tighten the alternator.

How do you remove fuel pump from fuel tank 1997 Saab 900?

Two methods are available: remove the fuel tank or cut a hole in the floor under the rear seat. Either method gives you access. To get to the fuel pump you need a tool to loosen the metal ring--SAAB has a special tool or you can use water pump type pliers. The fuel line clips have to be removed. Pay attention to the alignment marks on the pump and tank before removal or mark with a Sharpie. The whole pump unit costs about $500 or a pump only can be installed for much less -- $75 or so.
