    Hey, I've been driving my car and it's been going great. Until the other night when I tried to get in my car. I locked it and than unlocked it, opened the door and the alarm went off. Since than my car hasn't been able to start and I've looked everywhere for a new key fob battery 625A and a...

    Hi.. Can I use later model cd changers with my original head unit or must I replace with the same one that's failed which says it's a 1998 unit too ? Happy to use converter cable if a available. Theres always new old stock 2003-2006 models available so that would be good if they work with mine?

    Hi there, A little history, have had this car since 2000 and have taken care of it. Did the PCV change, cleaned the sump 3 times. A couple of weeks ago had the oil pressure light come on. Cleaned the sump again (about 30% clogged with bits but not sludge and nothing metallic) and changed...

    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 change at 5-7000 miles. Thanks to complacency I only check the level every few months. I've noticed...

    Hiya... I've got all the parts to replace the whole front end suspension but I'm unsure why I need two sleeves apart from it raises the damper part about an inch or so above the lower leg it fits onto. My concern is the damper will screw direct into the lower legs. If these sleeves are screwed...

    I am selling my father's Saab 900 now that he can no longer drive, because of illness. My father has had a Saab of one type or another since the mid 1970s so this is a sad day all round. The 900 was bought new in 1998 and has very low mileage for its age at 72753, not having been used much in...

  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi Couldn't find anything with search. Is there a procedure for changing a duff pump anywhere, or has anyone done it and have knowledge to share? I'm hoping it can be done through the rh wheel arch after removing the liner? If not and it's an engine out job, it's a scrapper I think? Thanks

    Private sale. Dark blue with tan interior. MOT until March 2017. Lovely car but I no longer have the room to keep it or the enthusiasm to maintain it, so it has to go, but I'd like it to go to a Saab enthusiast. CAR NOW SOLD. Thanks to everyone who expressed interest.

  13. Saab 9-3 & GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello everyone, I've decided to try and get DAB in my SAAB 93 Convertible ('98) using the same method as I did in my wife's car - with a small portable receiver, plugging the headphone output into the car stereo aux input. This works a treat but I see no way of doing the same on the SAAB unit...

  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi Had a clunk from the front suspension which turned out to be a rusted top strut which holds the shock absorb-er in. They rust where the thread is then shear off at about 1.5CM from the top. Expensive fix if you go down the new leg route and a second hand one will have the same problem or at...
  16. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello all, I'm having some trouble with the ignition switch on my 1998 Saab 9-3 conv. When I take the key out of the ignition switch the barrel doesn't click shut and switch off the electrics. I imagine that over the years it's got a bit clogged and needs a clean. I've tried a good few doses of...

  19. Saab 9-3 & GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi All, First time poster here, but I was wondering if I could pick someone's brains with a slight issue I have. I've had my 9-3 for about 3 years now and had no issues with the radio or electrics previously, but a few months ago out of the blue the radio started coming up on the display as...
  20. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi All. I`ve owned my Saab since the beginning the year and all was great during the summer months. I`ve now started using it again but all is not well. It started with rough running at idle and not being able to rev, pull off very slowly and it will sort itself out, yet reverse it back in my...
