    OK, I feel stupid even asking this, but here goes. Car: 96 900SE Conv. Problem, clutch not engaging after sitting all winter.

    Any help on this would be great. I bought my manual 6-speed 2008 9-3 (39,000 miles) within the past month. The fact that it was still under bumper to bumper for a year was a key feature that I liked. The car lot that I bought it from said that the Saab dealer had checked it out and it was in...

    My clutch has been hard to bleed. After slave replacement and master resealing a while back, I tried for a very long time to bleed it, and got it "good enough" but not perfect (a little free play at top of pedal, but enough to still shift smoothly). I am guessing this is due to a one way (in)...
