  1. Re: 2003-2008 Saab 9-3 4dr (conv same?) rear bumper

    OK so US based but this site says saloon and convertable are different part numbers:

    4 door-12769712, 12798001
    Conv - 32016142

    I would have expected the same part number if they're...

    Re: Fuel Consumption test

    That's pretty good. I tend to get 40ish mpg from my manual 2.0T Aero but my average motorway speed is probably a little higher.

    I keep thinking I should get my car re-mapped. What one do you have?

    Re: No power at my radio

    You might be able to read the codes yourself with a cheap OBD2 code reader. Would be a good starting point.

    Something like this or this and a phone app (other OBD2 code readers are available :))

    Re: Navagion Disk

    Sat Nav is nothing special but it works. I've got a 2010 disk in my 9-3 (UK). OK, it doesn't go postcode lookup but it generally gets me there and home :)

    As to the Op's question, the sat nav's...

    Re: 9-3 -2.8 V6 Turbo X Reviews

    Complete waste of money imho. It's just a standard Aero with a thirsty v6, heavy 4 wheel drive system and fancy wheels with overpriced tyres. The 2.0T isn't much slower and the standard 2.8 manual...

    Squeaky Steering Column

    My steering column squeaks when I turn the wheel. High pitched and increasingly irritating. It might be psychosomatic but the steering also seems to be getting harder to turn (makes note to go and...

    Re: spark plugs

    NGK PFR6D-10G is actually the correct plug. It is a Saab special fitment (I think). The ground electrode has a rounded tip. The PFR6T-10G is the square tip equivalent.

    Amusingly the correct plug...

    I've just re-read my post from yesterday and I was clearly talking out of my ar$e :crazy:. All 2.0T petrol Aero's are sub 226g/km CO2 so all should be 285 at most. It's only the 2.8 that is greater...

  19. Re: 9-3 Covertible - No Power to High Level Brake Light

    It won't have a separate fuse. It'll be spurred in the loom going to the rear brake lights.

    First off I'd power the HL brake light in situ from a known good 12v source (positive only). If it fails...

    Depends how you're washing it. Bucket and sponge probably OK but I wouldn't fancy taking it through a car wash or a getting a power wash pointed at it :)
