how do you get to the oil filter housing line bolts??

Is it possible to do without pulling the whole right side brace? I'm following Saab Plantinoff directions on a engine removal, but I can't see how it is possible to get a 22mm wrench on these bolts.... Without removal of the passengers side brace deal. On platinoff's site it seems his is either out of the way or not present...

(Doing this in the garage at home, so trying to minimize the amount of stuff I am pulling apart)

You have a pic? The only oil "lines" go to and from the external oil cooler, and the place to disconnect that is at the o-ring seal on the engine side. Each line's tabs overlap one another and are held in place by one much smaller nut in the center. Remove that center nut and pull. All the other oil passages are internal.

Take out the whole engine with the cooler attached. Then swap it all out. There is enough flex in the cooler lines that you can snake it out IIRC.

depends on the year

i think he has the early style threaded hydraulic lines

it can be done in the car, but usually the lines are ceased so it makes it very difficult

OP what exactly are you trying to do?

This is what I am trying to disconnect (I guess maybe it is the "oil cooler" lines).

My year is a 1997 (2.0 T, 4door)
I am swapping in a 2.3 from another vehicle (picked up from nickturbo900) as this engine has blown.

Just replaced oil lines in a 99 9-3, nut is in between the two lines. Hit it with brake cleaner and see if the nut shows up. There also is a nut near oil filter. Lines on 9-5 maybe different.

If If they are threaded hoses, brake cleaner and pb blaster and see if the threads appear.

Just remove the 13 mm-head bolts that hold the entire filter housing itself to the block. Reseal with Anaerobic.

Sounds good, thanks guys. Just have to remove the A/C compressor once I do that and I can pull the ECU harness wiring and pull the engine out (maybe another plug or two). Is it necessary to actually tap the axle on the passenger side off the shaft? (I am pulling it with the trans attached).
