Part number 4904579 is a new, unused Genuine Saab clutch slave cylinder. If you are having trouble shifting gears, or your clutch engages just inches from the floor or the clutch pedal is soft, you may need to replace your clutch master cylinder or clutch slave cylinder. Hydraulic clutches are similar to brakes. When your foot pushes on the clutch pedal, it transfers hydraulic fluid from the master cylinder, through the lines to the clutch slave cylinder to engage the clutch. Before you replace either cylinder first ensure your fluid is full and check for leaks throughout the system. You should also flush and bleed the fluid to ensure you have no air in your line. If your clutch pedal is still soft or spongy, you may need to replace one of your cylinders. (We suggest starting with the leaky one).
The original parts used by Saab to build your car are available as replacement parts under the “Genuine Saab” brand. Manufactured under the direction of Saab, expect excellent quality and a premium price since these parts are exclusively available through the Saab Dealership network.
You may not realize this, but the parts that make up your Saab are not necessarily manufactured by Saab. No cause for concern, as Saab designs the part, hires a manufacturer and ensures its quality to you, including a 1 year warranty. In fact, many of these manufacturers have been making parts for Saab for decades and are experts in their own right. In our industry these manufacturers are called OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) or OES (Original Equipment Suppliers), and are often brands you recognize including Ishino, KYB, NGK and Sachs. Don’t be surprised to open that Genuine Saab parts box and find a NGK branded part inside.
