hi all im new to the forum as well as saab ownership. i have just bought a 9000 cs turbo 2.3 FPT, bought on wednesday gearbox fubar by friday afternoon, not a happt teddy bear lol. i can no longer get reverse which is a pain, i spoke to david at saabflight and he said it is common to the FM57 box fitted to my car so i am on the look out for a new gearbox.

anyone else had similar problems and if so how much did it cost to put right??

cheers

Yes, Reverse gear likes to wear out. You can likely replace it, if you're keen on transmission work. The gears are not cheap, if you can find them, but it is better to tear yours open and see what condition it is versus blindly replacing it with a used FM57 that might be in worse shape.
