I am in the middle of a engine/transmission overhaul. The first time for me doing a Saab 96. The Trolls made dis assembly quite easy. The hood comes off with out any tools and the front clip comes off with a minimum of work, allowing easy egress for the engine. Mine came out in one day working alone.
DEFINATLY get the manual. I have the shop reprint as well as Hanes and found cross referencing the two helped a novice like myself to understand.
You will also need some way to lift the engine. I borrowed a rolling engine hoist that worked very well. I was concerned my garage might not be tall enough to lift and pull the motor. The unit comes out fairly flat
so this did not become a problem.
Much info can be found here and on the vsaab site. Searching the archives can help solidify your resolve. These cars are Tinker Toys for Big Boys. Dive in and enjoy!
