so the cable that was in my car was missing a bushing that went into the firewall so it had a lot of play in it, so i pulled one from my parts car. When i disconnected my old cable i noticed that my clutch pedal was also missing the spring that kept it in place. when i put the new cable in its very loose and doesnt fully engage the clutch. so 2 problems. 1 can i just put a spring from antoher peadal on mine or do i have to swap the whole set up? and 2 how the hell to you get the clutch cable to tighten up?

There are two types of cables, adjustable and non-adjustable. Check out saabsite.com to see the differences. If it isn't adjustable...well, might still need a new one. I just bought one from partsgeek.com for $40.

did you test out the cable in your parts car before taking it off? I mean was the action tight? You shouldn't have to swap the whole set up. I'm surprised you didn't notice the missing spring.

Just curious to know how that partsgeek clutch is working for you. I've seen those sights but im a little iffy on them..i know i'm gonna need a clutch soon. I literally have a shoelace yanking on mine tied to the strut mount =(

I'm pretty Obsessive/Compulsive so I usually cross reference every part with every seller when I need something. The cable I got from PartsGeek is the Febi Bilstein (made in Germany) is adjustable. And it was $35.
The last cable I bought for a different car was a Scan Tech from a local dealer and it works fine.
Except for the nationwide chainstores, most of the online places sell the same parts.
