The clips that hold the fuel lines in the pump might have been damaged in install. They install a new clip over them to be sure. It is pretty simple but hard if the tank is full.

I think this is what you're referring to:

Saab Recalls 9-3 Models to Fix Possible Fuel Leak

December 27, 2005
General Motors Corp. is recalling the 2001 and 2002 Saab 9-3 because the fuel pump may leak where the gasoline line attaches.

Approximately 17,400 Saab 9-3 passenger vehicles, both hard top and convertible, built in Uusikaupunki, Finland are included in the recall. The Saab 9-3s were built between May 2000 and July 2002.

According to national Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) documents accompanying the recall, the plastic fuel pump retaining tabs holding the fuel lines were damaged during the manufacturing process for some of the Saabs built in Finland.

NHTSA indicates that over time the fuel lines can loosen from the pump causing the fuel leak and fire potential.
