1990–1998 SAAB 9000 5-speed Clutch Hoses

If not inspected or addressed- this hose may be rotting internally and plugging your clutch hydraulic system. The Saab prescribed remedies are very expensive but can be circumvented with early detection and at a minimum, flushing the clutch fluid.

This hose carries the fluid pressure for your hydraulicly operated clutch. One type of hose has been found to deteriorate internally, plugging up the hydraulic cylinder inside your clutch assembly, known as the "slave cylinder". Saab issued a bulletin to dealers in 1999, but we have not seen any problems until recently. The Saabs experienced difficulty in depressing the clutch pedal, because the rotting rubber from the defective hoses was plugging small orifices in the slave cylinder.
