    I'm getting mine serviced Monday Dez ready for the R/R sat too. I didn't fancy attempting it my self. Does the manifold have to come off to take them out?

    If it is like on the 3.2V6 it is not a five minute job.

    Yep 1.5 hours sounds about correct. Have you looked at the 3.2 how 2. It might give you some idea?.

    This is how to do it on the Saab 9-3 2.8, can't be that different on the Signum:


    1) Remove engine cover

    2) Detach the ground cables and unplug the connectors of the engine control module

    3) Remove the engine control module with mounting. The lower hole of the mounting is slotted.

    4) Unplug the atmospheric pressure sensor connector.

    5) Remove the cable duct from the plate bracket

    6) Remove the plate bracket from the intake manifold

    7) Detach the brake vacuum hose from the intake manifold

    8) Remove the holder and check valves for crankcase ventilation and tank bleeding

    9) Unplug the ignition coil connectors. At cylinder 4, the ignition coil must be loosened and lifted slightly in order to unplug the connector.

    10) Remove the ignition coils

    11) Remove the spark plugs.

    12) When replacing plugs tighten to 28 NM (21 lb ft)
