Bearing bush differential output for Saab gearbox available again


The Saab bearing bushing no. 8733230, which is important for the differential of the manual transmission, has been newly manufactured by SKANDIX.

The original part is no longer available since end of 2019. You can recognize a defect in the bushing by the fact that the drive shaft has excessive tolerance in the differential. This causes defects at the shaft sealing ring and thus an oil loss between gearbox and drive shaft. In the worst case, the differential will be destroyed inside.

If in doubt, replace the bushing as a precaution to prevent expensive gear damage.

The new bearing bushing is manufactured according to original specifications and is now available under article number 1024717.

Suitable for:

  • Saab 9-3 (-2003) all models with manual transmission
  • Saab 900 (1994-) all models with manual transmission
  • Saab 9000 model from 1994 onwards with manual gearbox

The bushing can be replaced from the outside with a suitable extraction tool (adapter 1078462 with slide hammer 1074165) without having to remove the gearbox. Only the housing cover must be unscrewed from the gear unit. A new O-ring (1046549) and a new shaft seal ring (1009445 , 1002999 , 1018302) are required as part of the repair.
