The bleeder is on the "slave" cylinder down at the clutch. Attach a hose to the bleed valve and route it into an acceptable container. You should have a "loop" so that the fluid has to travel "up and over" to the container. Open the bleed valve and have someone press and HOLD the clutch pedal down. Then close the bleed valve and release the pedal slowly. You should do this about 3 times and then check the fluid level in the master cylinder(at the firewall). In the picture below the bleed valve is at the top with the nipple for attaching a hose:

If it's a new SAAB part, the instructions it comes with advise to 'rock the old knob to and fro, and side to side' in order to get it off.

I just did this on mine and it takes some perseverance, but it eventually comes off. To fit the new one, you need to use a mallet with something absorbant covering the new knob to keep from marring it.

Yanking too hard upwards on the knob can damage the whole shift lever assembly and then you'll be worse off than you were before.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

in a case like this you can have allot of thing's going on to cause this, you really need to have the computer control system for the fuel injection tested for trouble codes before u buy any parts, but based on my experience two thing are the most common cause of this, one is low fuel pressure, it requires a special gauge to test the pressure, so have that one when the trouble code test is run, the next thing is a part located i the air intake called the MAF sensor, this is also a common cause of this and sets no codes if it fails in most cases, have the tests done and then go from the results of the tests.

If your getting power to the top of the pump at the harness and its not running, pull the pump back out and check the two power leads to the pump insert are connected. Jump power directly to the pump insert. If no go, looks like you got a defective pump.

i am sure that you have heard this already but it is the first thing that comes to my mind. take a look at you drive shaft and ensure that it is still in working condition. it sounds like it has slipped out and that is causing the motor to run and the car not too. let me know if this helps you out at all.
