    I run a 98 9-3 lp turbo manual hatch. Due to only clocking up on average 140 miles a week in two journeys my oil level rarely needs topping up and normally stays near top level until annual oil...

    Does anyone know any ways around this...

  6. Re: Air bag ECU faulty does used replacement need to be divorced from original vehicl

  9. Re: Leaking power steering racks ... 3 racks failed in 4 years!!!

    I will be getting a brand new (not a recon) power steering rack fitted as it is now leaking way to much! I have been told to ask the garage to check any seals and also it may have had a non return...
  10. Leaking power steering racks ... 3 racks failed in 4 years!!!

    I am hoping someone will let me know why my steering rack replacements are failing after about 1 year? This is getting very expensive and I am tempted to get rid of it.

    Re: Rattling sound on idle.....1998 9-3 SE

    I will be taking it into my local specialist for a listen. In fact it needs brake pads all round and so I may as well book it in and they can have a look and listen at the same time :)

    Re: Rattling sound on idle.....1998 9-3 SE

    I don't think a '98 2litre petrol SE has a DMF thank god! I have seen priced for genuine Saab clutch around 220 and a Sachs for 150. I maybe a little premature in thinking replacement yet as there...

    I know this is not an easy one to diagnose, especially in a forum, but my best guess is it is something to do with the transmission/clutch/drive shaft? The rattle comes and goes and last just a few...
  17. 1998 9-3 radio and all related switches and remote switching freezes?

    This has happened twice now. During a journey I wanted to lower the volume level on my radio to find I had no control of it from either direct buttons or remote/steering wheel.
    I could not change to...
