Typical "remove screws or bolts and pull out whatever. Put back in and replace screws or bolts" book. That's all that one would expect from a Chilton manual, Haynes books are sometimes a little bit better.
Not this time.

Absolutely nothing on the engine management system or the fuel injection system in the way of theory of operation of troubleshooting or a
description of the components. Barely acknowledge that these systems exist.
Nothing that addresses the kinds of problems that an owner experiences with the car. Lots of filler language that is common knowledge and never gets into the really needed stuff.

The electrical diagrams are about the only useful thing in the whole book and the only reason for the star.
Unusual presentation, but once you get a grip on the way things or represented the diagrams are reasonably accurate and can save a lot of time chasing things down. So if you are looking for a manual that covers the whole car with relevant entries and useful troubleshooting help
on anything outside of the electrical diagrams, I say forget this book. Useless! Not worth a dime for anything outside of the diagrams.
And the Saab has a lot of electrical problems.

One more thing. Once you have mastered reading the unconventional electrical diagrams, not rocket science if you are a fluent diagram reader, and you have diagnosed to the point of suspecting a certain component, the next question is; Where the hell is it in the car?

I have seen a lot of manuals not only for cars, but industrial equipment and electronics as well and
I have written a few too, so I can confidently say that this one sucks 99%.

I almost forgot. The suggested access method for removing the alternator apparently was never really tried because you can't get it out that way.
No way. Dreaming! Not possible. There may be other procedures in the book sharing this property. I didn't dismantle the whole car. But I did find a way to replace the core plugs on the firewall side of the engine with the engine in the car. Nothing mentioned in the book addressing replacing core plugs. You're on your own there. By the way, that is the correct terminology, not "Freeze plug" or Expansion plug". The holes are there to clean out the core from the casting process and for no other reason.
I would have given 5 stars if it would have included the V6 engine. Other than that, it is as complete as any Haynes manual. One other review mentioned that the manual does not include wiring diagrams. I don't know what they were talking about. There is a complete set of wiring diagrams. As I said, it has been very helpful. My first project was to remove and disable the reverse gear/ignition lock combo. I would not have guessed that the first step was to remove the drivers side seat belt. Clutch replacement is next on the list.
Just bought my daughter an old Saab for her imminent driver's license....Needed to keep repair costs manageable for an old car....

Lots of pictures and hints on how to do troubleshooting and repairs. Note that if you are planning engine or transmission rebuilds this is not the book for you! But if you are planning minor repairs then this is the ticket....

I will be doing a full rear brake job (rotors and pads) next weekend.....So this one points out the overall repair process for my particular Saab. Nothing out of the ordinary!
Since I live in the U.S., and I bought my Saab 900 in the U.S., it would have been nice to know that this book was written for publication in the U.K. It provides, of course, information on Saab 900's built for sale in the U.K. As we say on this side of the pond, "Different critter." It's a fun read with terms like "tyres" and "kerb" and "bonnet," but not especially informative for my purposes. So far, about five or so percent of the book actually applies to my car, and most of that I already knew or could find in the owner's manual for the car. It's an interesting addition to my ever-growing collection of Haynes and Chilton's manuals; but it falls somewhat short as a remedy to the innumerable niggling little short-comings of my sexy black Swede.
A friend gave me a 1996 Saab convertible. Impossible to get parts, but this book will at least let me know what part is broken that I can't replace.
Probably find a close alternative to slowly help in re-building the whole engine.
Maybe an old air cooled thing. But it is turbo-charged which I understand is a sought after commodity in this auto.
The book was in excellent condition and I got it for a great price. It's a must have if you own one of these finicky cars and do any wrenching on them yourself. I love my '95 convertible, but it has its faults. This book has been a big help.
This manual was obviously written for the UK. There is lot of information but they omit things like: EXHAUST!!! These vehicles have an odd ball and socket exhaust connection with a band clamp, it would have been nice to get some pointers on assembly. Also, no mention of seat heaters, radio repair, antenna fixes. Fortunately, there is wealth of information available on the web. All in all, its handy because it has fluid and torquing specs.
as described, good book, black and white photos, pretty in depth both general and specific care guide and info
