Agreed, had the same problem with my wifes 9000.

Gearbox strip & rebuild sadly.

However, gave the car to a local SAAB specialist as the main dealer wanted to charge "around £2000+" (charged about a third of that)

PS, when they took it apart there was a heck of a lot of damage/swarf etc floating around in there, so sooner rather than later IMHO.

Regards all
