Saab 93 Sports Gear tower repair kit instructions
A short demonstration carried out by a technician at 2 Stroke, on how to
apply your gear tower repair kit, to your Saab 93 Sports gear tower.
1) Step one is to check your kit. You will need the following things:
- Sealed disposable counter sink / Drill bit (supplied)
- Puller nut, bolt & washer (supplied)
- PTFE self-lubricating, high quality bearing (supplied)
- High Torrance steel bolt (with nylock nut) (supplied)
- Punch, and Abrasive cloth holder (supplied)
- Abrasive cloth (supplied)
- Knife / flat screw driver (supplied if available at time of order)
- Protective plastic bag (supplied)
- 17mm spanner / socket x 2
- 10mm spanner / socket
- Clean working area.
2) As soon as your gear tower is removed from the vehicle, you should use a
cable tie to secure the plastic bag around the shaft of the tower, to
prevent any dirt getting into the mechanism.
3) It's time to drill out the original seized pivot bearing.
Fit the counter sink supplied into your drill and slowly work away at the
This will take 5 - 10 minutes. It's important that you don't apply to much
pressure at this stage, or set the drill at super high speeds, all this
will achieve is burning away at the counter sink. It is designed to slowly
work though the original bearing so no damage is caused to any other part
of the tower.
If you have workshop facilities then a small angle grinder can also be
4) Once the end has been drilled through, take your metal punch, and your
hammer, and knock the bearing out. Once it has been knocked through, the
attached swinging arm can be temporarily pulled away and removed from the
5) Using a small knife, and / or a small flat head screw driver, you now
need to remove the plastic sleeve on the inside of the hole where the
The best way to do this, is to score up the inside using a sharp razor, and
then to pry at the end of the sleeve with your screw driver. This should
break away and come out, leaving a relatively smooth metal surface
6) Place your metal punch into your drill, and attach the abrasive cloth
into the grove. Work this in and out of the hole, cleaning the surface of
all swarf and dirt. Don't rush this part as the more time is spent cleaning
this, the better.
7) Once cleaned, you need to fit the new PTFE Bearing.
Apply a little grease to both the bearing, and the channel for the bearing
to go into.
Put the 17mm bolt through the hole, and put the PTFE bearing over the
Put the washer against the bearing, and then put on the nut, and hand
tighten to secure.
Using your 2 x 17mm spanners / sockets, continue to tighten the nut, slowly
using it to pull the new bearing into place.
8) Once in place, undo the nut and remove the bolt & washer.
The new bearing is now in place.
9) Put the pivoting arm back into place. Fit the high tolerance smooth
bolt through the bearing, again applying grease as you do this and secure
into place with the nylock nut supplied. Tighten this appropriately.
The gear tower is now overhauled, and should move smoothly throughout the
gears when fitted back into your car.

legendary SAAB rally personality, Simo Lamipinen of Finland and of course

2011 Saab 9-5 Aero Turbo6 XWD Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2011 Saab 9-5 Aero.
Released as a late 2010 model, the 2011 now boasts a panoramic glass roof
along with the great redesign. Overall makes the car have a much more
stately appearance and further set it in a more sport/luxury sedan class.
I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this
car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
