1979-1993 & 94 Conv
'88t. I expected it to be the bushings, especially as the alt was new-ish (a replacement Bosch unit), but once i got it out, it was obvious. You should do the bushings anyway, regardless.
The real issue is just how much of a PITA this job is, and how to make it easier in the future. I like to pull the alt bracket off, and remove the oil filter housing at the same time. Then, upon reassembly, make sure the long bolt comes in from the front of the car. This puts the nut on the firewall side, and allows you to remove the alt by simply undoing the nut, and sliding the bolt forward (after removing the oil filter housing). Every Saab i have ever had has that bolt in with the nut on the front, thus too long to clear the bracket before hitting the firewall.
BTW, the right extensions with 'wobble' ends makes all the difference on the oil filter housing (but you all know that already!). I think i also unclipped the dipstick tube at the top for additional movement of the the oil lines.
In any case, good luck
