Hello and a warm welcome aboard the good ship saabscene Paulablett20
the saab guidelines are 75.000 miles/7 years whichever comes first .I think ( but as saab no longer exists in name)
by those guilelines 2022/2023 .
but I would in my mind let it go that long as rubber dose degrade .and the water pump is driven by the cambelt.and that's the weak link .
if water pump seizes then it throws the belt and the whole lot becomes a expensive mess .
so my rule of thumb is 4 years / 40000 miles whichever comes first .so at least I know I'm doing it sooner rather than later .
