In the tool kit that's under the lid of the spare tire well, you'll find this weird tool consisting of two U-shaped pieces of steel rod tied together with a chain. The radio has four holes in the face, two on the left side, two on the right.
Stick one steel rod in each pair of holes - the radio will look like it has little handles. Put your thumbs on the inboard sides of these rods and press out - this is to bind up the rods in the holes. Then give the rods a good pull, and the radio will slide right out. This is how we kept our stereos from getting ripped off before they had detachable faceplates...we just took the whole radio out and locked it in the trunk.
Now for the fun part: You probably wanted to get the old radio out so you could put a nicer one in. You will have to find the bent-in tabs on the radio sleeve and bend them out somehow so you can remove the sleeve, because your new radio won't work with the old sleeve.

yes, same engine.
hit it with a baseball bat or a sleige hammer
Yes. Saab makes a 900 convertible. It is called the Saab 900 se convertible.
Like all cars, Saab 900s have brakes. The calipers are part of the braking system. The braking system was basically the same on all Saab 99s and 900s from 1975 to 1987. What's the question?
release on SAAB 900 S convertible
The Saab 900 gets great mileage if you take great care of the car, regular oil changes, etc. In looking at forums about the saab 900 there were many people who have over 150,000 miles on their saab 900's. There was also a listing for 307,000 miles.
Nope. They're completely different. The 1994 Saab 900 has an engine oriented fore-and-aft. The transmission is in the oil pan. There are a lot of other differences, but for now this is enough. The 1999 Saab 900 has a transverse engine like most other front-wheel-drive cars, and the transmission is bolted to the end of the engine. One big advantage of the old layout is the clutch replacement procedure. Instead of having to remove the engine or transmission to get at the clutch, on a classic Saab 900 all you need do is remove a plastic cover.
You will probably need a Saab shop manual or at least the wiring diagram. The radio wiring is a little different depending on the model year. You will need to remove the left speaker cover to help with removal and installation. During re-assembly, make sure that the rod between the heater valve and the temperature dial on the dash has not become disconnected.
Yes, Saab did make a 900 SE turbo. Is there a question? ~ Odd looking cars really.
The wiring diagram for "Radio - 1991" is on page 371-123 of the Saab 900 16-Valve Official Service Manual, published by Robert Bentley Publishers. Because of copyright restrictions, the diagram can not be posted here. Every Saab 900 owner should have this book. Price is only about $50. I use mine nearly every week for something.
900 or 9000? On the 900 (left-hand drive), the turn signal flasher is located just to the left of the steering wheel.
The Saab 9-3 and 9-5, and the new-generation 900, were based on the Opel Vectra. The Saab 9000's chassis was designed to be made by Saab, Alfa Romeo, Lancia and Fiat. The original Saab 900 was based on the Saab 99, which wasn't based on anything else.
There are several different front brake calipers for the Saab 900 depending on the year. The first is from 1979-1987 and is the same as that on the Saab 99 beginning in 1975. You need a special tool to rotate the caliper piston back into place because the front caliper also acts as the parking brake. From 1988 thru 1993, the front calipers on the Classic 900 are the same as those on the Saab 9000. The NG 900 has a completely different brake caliper setup beginning with the 1994 model.
If I remember correctly it will be located at the bottom of the windshield under the cowl assembly and you will need to remove the wiper arms and the cowl to remove this............
Visit the saabsite . com and they will explain it through the forums. Basically it is a bitch to do. I have a 900 as well, and you have to remove the console. good luck
Remove the speaker covers. Remove the speaker retaining screws. Remove the wiring harness from the back of the speakers. Reverse the process to install the new speakers.
Buying a used Saab 900 in Ohio depends on your location and if there are any available in your local. Check with your local Saab dealership. The dealership will be able to locate the vehicle you are looking for and provide you with the information.

The car must be on for 1 hour. After 1 hour, the words, "code in" will appear. Enter your 4 digit code.
I need the heating and cooling wiring schematics for a 1996 SAAB 9000.
Any individual interested in purchasing a Saab 900 would be best suited to check classified ads that specialize in antique or classic cars. The Saab 900 is no longer made. Other places which may carry the autmobile include eBay motors.
Under the glove compartment. Need to remove the glove compartment to gain access to the computer
The dealer, with your car title, can provide you with it. You are probably talking about the radio, in which case you're out of luck, because the code is in the car's manual, and the radio you're holding is obviously hot. It works.
GM acquired 50% ownership of Saab in 1989 but it was not until the launch of the Saab 900 in 1994 that GM had an influence on Saab. In 2000 GM acquired full control of Saab and in 2003 the Saab 9-3 was built which was built.
