Just purchased about two weeks ago, the harmonic balancer was cracked so pulled it to find out the crank key had broke and i had to pull the timing chain and crank gear to remove it! Haha I am new to Saabs but i love the car and am getting put down by everyone locally when I ask for advice so I figured I would join the online Saab community! In the middle of putting the new timing chain kit back on and putting the car back together.. Let me just say i cannot wait to drive this car! It was running when i got it but the harmonic balancer was wobbling and crank seal leaking oil. So I have heard it run(runs very well) but havent got to drive it yet!
2005 Saab 9-3 (White)
160,000 miles. Swapping timing chain with an ebay timing chain kit (which looks surprisingly well quality) due to broked chain guide and having to remove the chain anyways
carbon fiber antenna cover, new saab center caps on the rims and saab rally pig stickers front and back just to be different..
