You could get a copy of wis from eBay. This gives you a step by step guide. I got a copy and printed the guide off and changed my cambelt and water pump on my tid 150.
WIS available on here for free somewhere I got it recently very kind member shared it :thumbsup:

I got one done by a dealer last year. Not many have experience but I found that the saab dealer in Taunton had done quite a few & were experienced. I was also looking for a dealer that had the extra MDI (not tech2) that could program my spare key & carry out a general s/ware upgrade too on the 20 odd computers! The kits available from orio in about a week (£600) and its a 2 day repair including the water pump. Expect a bill of around £2k. I'd you have the awd, the oil will need changing ever 20-25k miles otherwise it's a very expensive repair. Again, 2 different oil types, front/rear systems & pressures Tec
