Forum rules


When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

TIA

With the special worskshop tool provided by SAAB. That or buy a dipstick and the tube online and fit it to the car. About £25 for both parts.

Jamsaab posted a cheaper dipstick method. Something like 50mm below the opening.

It's on the forum somewhere. Not too long ago.

Doesnt help with the topping up or changing the fluid without the tube or something suitable at least.
