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.

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.

Will a 94 900 Saab trasmission fit a 99 900s?

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.

How do you install a new radio into a 1989 Saab 900?

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.

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.

How do you push the piston back in the front brake caliper on a Saab 900?

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.
