    Re: Heeellppp !!!

    Kaurent,

    I think you need to clean the valve that controls the turbo boost. Sound like you are hitting overboost when you accelerate hard. It's the black thingy on the top of the 'cobra' pipe...

    Re: Electric mirrors

    johnl,

    As rich suggests, it is probably the up/down,left/right switch that is defective. You usually find that, if you wiggle the switch in each of the 4 positions and the mirrors will move...

    Re: Another MOT passed

    Griffin Dave,

    Had you tried an Italian service before the test. Usually gets all the ducks in order. The Saab engines can usually get away without a cat and still pass. ( For Italian service...

    Re: turn signal 2003 95 Linear Wagon

    warpedw,

    I think the sound is an artificially generated one made audible by the little speaker in the middle of the dash top. These get 'tired' over the years and you really need to replace it to...

    Re: key remote not working

    Usually when the lock barrel doesn't 'pop up' when the key is removed, the radio stays on.

    Re: Irritating brake light failure

    Nick,

    Light bulbs which come back on after a slap, to me indicate that the filament has parted slightly and the vibration of the hit makes them flutter about and they sometimes touch and fuse...
  7. Re: 2003 9-5 ( and 9-3 ) handbrake adjuster

    cjapeterborough,

    It's the adjuster inside the brake drum I mean.

  8. 2003 9-5 ( and 9-3 ) handbrake adjuster

    Guys,

    Does anyone know whether the adjuster for the Vectra is the same as the SAAB 9-5 and 9-3 one ? If so then a part No. would be useful.

    Re: 2.3 HOT Manual Noise (see video)

    Nige,

    Noises that come and go when the clutch is depressed generally are related to the clutch plate itself, or the release bearing but could also be the gearbox input shaft. Anyway I suspect...

    Re: Error code reader

    I bought an Actron CP9125 from eBay for about 25 and it reads both OBD and OBD2 even though it is badged as OBD II PocketScan. It does my 1999 cabrio and both an 02 and 57 plate diesels.

    Re: Window stuck

    Nick,

    Does the motor try to drive as you lift the window by hand ? I think your runners are jamming the glass as it rises. Lubricate with silicon oil.

  12. Re: Lower brake lights not working (other lights work) 2002 9-3 Vert

    Tangleberry,

    Check the earth wiring in the rear left corner under the carpet. I had one which rusted off. Moved the connection to an adjacent stud and everything was better. The other problem I...

    Re: Power seat release when no power?

    rhf411,

    I seem to remember having to do this with a seat from a 9000. I used a battery drill to wind the seat fully back to access the front bolts then fully forward to get at the rears

    Re: "Check Engine"

    Alpenflitzer,

    You may be correct that the two sensors are faulty but your reasoning is incorrect. The Lambda sensor measures oxygen and increases fuelling until O2 becomes unmeasurably low then...

    Re: Gas Leak

    Tom,

    Bit of a clue here. When you said 'gas', as an American, I assumed you meant gasoline, what we call petrol. I now think you do mean gas, as in Liquified Petroleum Gas, LPG. If this is the...

    Re: Gas Leak

    tomringo,

    Could be the clips which hold the filler tube to the tank and the venting pipe. These have a habit of rusting through and falling off. The tanks themselves are pretty robust and...

    Re: 2001 9-3 Check Engine Light

    tomringo,

    As aerojon suggests, this could be a sign that the DI casette is on the way out. 100,000 miles is about right for the life of these. The codes mean: 1312 - misfire cylinders 1 and/or...

    Check the hose connections to and from the intercooler. The hose clips have a habit of rusting through and the hoses pop off. Runs (?) like a pig and throws all sorts of codes. Plugs...

    Saabertooni,

    Thanks for that tip. Always worth doing these sort of checks before resorting to the spanners. I'll keep you updated.

    Possible Head Job ?
