SAAB WIS Download

To install run the exe in the folder you wish to install.

You will need to download a copy if winrar to extract the files.

The language choice will be GB for British English.

When looking at the folders you will see 2 for the 9-3 and 2 for the 9-5.

This will allow you to install the wis from 1998 to 2011.

Steve,

Imagine my surprise at seeing the WIS download, specially since I just bought a 2002 9-5 Linear with an engine problem. The prior owner blew out the radiator, replaced it, then discovered the blown headgasket. After his "ASE certified mechanic" changed the headgasket the engine cranked slowly but failed to start. The PO had the starter tested and confirmed it burned up. So much for all that. He put it on CL as an AERO at $1500. I looked at it and decided to spend a grand. Did the deal the next day and got assistance pushing it into my trailer. When I got home, I realized the imbalance feeling from the trailer was caused by a blowout. SHEESH!

I got a Fleabay starter for $50, shipping included. Of course, the mounting bolt and nut were missing. When I finally got it in the engine turned over easily. NADA. Plenty of fuel when pressing the Schrader valve on the fuel rail. Swapped DIC's and still no start. Cranking the engine with partially threaded sparkplugs elicited no pressure. My compression gauge wouldn't even register. UH OH! I put a tall screwdriver in the #1 hole and turned the crank pulley until the screwdriver maximum height was achieved, indicating #1 piston was fully up, then removed the valve cover to check if the cams were properly timed for TDC. Yepper, they were. I put compressed air into each cylinder and heard hissing from each of the others. DAMNIT! Time to pull the head and see what happened. Sadly enough, the headgasket appeared intact, but, all eight intake valves were visibly bent, leaving tiny half moons on each piston. So next, time to steam clean the engine bay and replacement head and commence the assembly. I was hoping to pull the entire powertrain out from above, but after reviewing the WIS discovered it only comes out the bottom by lifting the vehicle and dropping the cradle. DANG!

My point in relating all this nonsense it to thank you and the SOCALSAAB CLUB for sharing the 9-3 and 9-5 WIS information. Certainly not as extensive as prior printed materials for the OG 900 and 9000, it was STILL provided a great deal of information.


Thank you!

Happy Trails!

Glad it could help. The new wis can be somewhat cryptic sometimes but will always get you in the right direction!

I wanna hear how that 9-5 runs when you get it all done!

You *can* pull it out the top...I have on OG9-3 and OG9-5s before, but its far easier to just drop the entire assembly out the bottom on the subframe, lift vehicle off and away, then lift engine/trans off the frame to separate. Theres a lot of things in the way to easily go out the top (Brake Booster, ABS Module etc). The engine trans assembly is also too wide to just lift straight up, you have to rotate it over to about 45 deg and slide it up and out as your going up, then manage the same to reinstall. Doable, but quite a pain.
