Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year of registration (not plate or model year) in the post subject/thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

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

For Tech II issues or help requests please state the following in your title ''Tech 2 help required - state issue and your location ''.

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, note compliant threads will be moved back when the mod/admin team next visit the Pit Lane. if your thread has been sat in the Pit Lane for 24hrs+ after editing, pm Tech II to request release)

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.**

The metal water pipe running along the front of the engine has failed (1.9 Tid 150). I have sourced a replacement, but how do you access the bolts holding it in place. I have managed to get the passenger side disconnected.

I've removed the plastic pipe from the air filter, but how to you remove the bottom section of the pipe (that run down the side of the dipstick tube)

Can anyone give me a link on how to change the pipe. The Saab EPC shows a gasket on 1 end of the pipe, can this be reused or do i need to replace it.

Many thanks

There are two bolts on the left hand end of the tube (as you look into the engine bay from the front of the car) - one long and one short, in opposing corners of that end which is a rectangular section. This is where the gasket is and I reused mine when I removed this pipe to remove the turbo.

The bolts are a bugger to get to behind the dipstick bracket - I seem to recall bending the bracket round out of the way and perhaps bending the dipstick tube out of the way a bit too to get to them. Dipstick bracket is on a separate short bolt into the engine.

Interested in whether your tube has a valve on it? Mine doesn't but others that I have seen do.

Apologies if I've misremembered any of the above - I'll have a look for pics as I may have some.
