1992 9000

So, I bought myself another c9000 in February of last year. I got it for a song out of Charlotte, NC. It has a stack of service records and the original window sticker. All cool and all, but the car is somewhat of a disaster as of now. I haven't done a thing to it since I bought it. It's been sitting at friends shop while I've been in school/ working on more immediate projects.

It's in LHM mode due to faulty TCS, has a bad exhaust gasket, and has a push-button starter-- totally ghetto. Interior is shot, needs some body work here and there... but, no rust.

The plan is to T5 it.

I think my best plan of attack is to buy an aero that's rusted, and transplant the guts...

Aero interior, B234R, and matching 5-speed transmission.

I will likely start working on this soon once I get the right donor car since my other projects are on the road somewhat reliably.

Here are some pics of it from the day I went and picked it up.

















Here is the car that started the love affair with Saabs, 9000's, and Classic 9000's

I'm trying to relive the glory days.

Nice! Glad to see you've got yourself another classic. While I don't have a ton left, let me know if you need any 1991-1992 specific stuff. I have some things sitting around.

That looks like a good find. I'll be watching this one for updates. I had a Platana 92 9000S for my first car (and first 3 transmissions). I've always wanted to find a 91 turbo in the same color.

I've considered holding this project off for a black one, like my first one. But I got this one at such a steal and it's at the point where it needs a good bit to be saved.

One at a time I suppose.

Nice! I hope to have it all updated to the newer generation hardware as much as I can feasibly swap over.

Have you ever had problems with the ABS unit in your 9000?

That was one of my concerns about doing all of this work. I hate the master cylinder CF that these have.

Drove this down from Chicago a couple of weeks ago. It's a great car, but rust has consumed fenders, windshield, rear shock towers, etc. I'm sacrificing this one for the good of the classic 9000. More updates soon.

Headliner basically fell out with a little persuasion.



Cooling fan relays are missing. Apparently this fused jumper wire was a solution to the PO. (Fans still don't work)



Shiesty wiring under the ABS pump fuse box.



Started removing dash

Looks like you got a heck of a project there. At least you have a complete parts car, that should help. Good luck!

I drove the car about 30 miles to my house from the shop I've been keeping it at. The ABS and brakefluid lights are on, stiff pedal. I've had these fail before, so Im going to attempt to swap over the brake system from the 94 as well. The wiring in the 92 is questionable and hacked up in different places and since I have an entire running parts car, I think it might be worth my while to swap the entire body harness.

Do it! And while you're at it, swap over all T5 specific parts and do a TCS delete. Mike D said its pretty easy. I had Jordan at eEuroparts do my 1995 9000 Aero and its works perfectly.

I talked to Mike D the other day for the first time, super nice guy. As far as T5ing this car, It seems like it's pretty easy. But given the brake master cylinder problem and having a parts car at my disposal, I'm basically going to make this car a 1994 Aero with the exception of the body. Uncharted territory as far as I can tell.

With a complete 1994 Aero as a donor car this should be tedious but hopefully fairly straightforward. When removing brake lines and brake pump/booster elements, take your time. Use lots of PB Blaster, tapping, PB, tapping, PB to loosen the connections...I BROKE 2 OF MINE like a ham-fisted moron.

One thing you might find is that your 1992 TCS pump has 4 brake line outlets (2 front, 2 rear) wheres non-TCS 94 pump has only 3 (2 front, 1 rear). In which case, you'd need to couple the rear brake lines into 1 and connect. This may not be the case for you, but it was for me with my 1995.

Killer combo; the best of both 9000's. Good luck!

Thanks for the advice, I definitely will do that. Good to know that the pumps are a little bit different. I haven't been able to find much info on them. I would never attempt this if I didn't have a fully functional donor car.

Some updates:

In July, I pulled the motor from the 92 and sold it to make room for the 94 Aero drivetrain. Since then, I've been slowly picking away at the interior and removing the wiring harness from the 92. I have it completely stripped and have started to carefully disassemble the 94. Now that school is out for the holidays, hopefully I should have some time to commit to it.
