Saab Story #1

SaabTechnician Ryan inspects the Clutch Assemby of this 1988 Saab 900 Turbo with a leaking Clutch Slave Cylinder and Line. Yep, that’s right, the Clutch is in the Front of the Engine Compartment! Saab likes to do things a little differently. For the other 99%+ cars and trucks on the road the engine “faces” forward with the drive belts toward the front (or to the side in the case of Transverse Engines). But Saab has the engine facing backwards -the drive belts are at the Rear of the Engine Compartment (near the Passengers) with the Clutch connecting to the Transmission at the Front of the Engine Compartment (near the Front Bumper.)
