    I don't use my car much unfortunately and I know that's not great, but it is what it is. I've replaced my original battery probably about 2 years ago with a Lion 100 (70Ah) High Performance. It was fine for a while, then needed a jump start around May last year. The summer was fine, but then...

    I'm wondering if anyone has any cheaper solutions the way of price......for supply and fit clutch for my car. I'm told that the parts alone cost £600 and the fit is another £400. Seems damn expensive !

    I'm happy with the general power output of my car, except when starting from standstill...which is dangerously slow (as covered elsewhere). I was thinking of trying the software re-flashing (there's one offered by Neo Bros for £300+), which changes the car from 150bhp to 180bhp...effectively...

    Any thoughts on how to get into the boot. The electronic key doesn't work on the boot. Should say year is 2005.

    Every so often, a pop sounds in the radio speakers and the radio shuts down for anything from 10 secs to 1 minute and I cannot hear the indicators. Anyone know what the problem is ?

    There is a small vacuum hose which is about 8 inches long and one quarter inch diameter which if its punctured affects the accelleration dramatically. Any body know what part I'm talking about. If so where can I get a piece ?

    My Saab 93 1.9tdi 2005 had been suffering with a very noisey alternator and the occasional 'battery not charging' message. I took it to a local garage and they informed me the alternator was faulty and replaced it. I now have a very quiet alternator but every time in drive the car, after...

    I have the above Saab reg 2006, and it has been cutting out on the motorway, in traffic etc. I took it to the Saab dealer in Gloucester 5 weeks ago and after it had been there for three weeks I finally got it back. First they checked injection items, wasn't that then they looked through the...

    Can anyone tell me the make of engine and gearbox in my car ?
  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    The car has done 55,000 miles and by pulling and pushing the back wheels there is play. Im told by a Saab garage that it is a common fault for the bushes to do this and normally 30,000 miles will show that they need doing again. The arms come with the bushes. £200 total is the cost for both...

    93 1.9TDI, 150 bhp, 6 Speed box, 55 plate 50,000 miles I understand that there is an gearbox oil upgrade relating to the 6 speed box. Why did Saab suggest the upgrade ? I wondered if it was as a result of some of these gearboxes, 6 speed that is, having bearing noise coming down thru...

    I posted a thread on here about the drone In the car. Ive changed the tyres to asymetrics and its cured the drone. I also have a gearbox wine through all gears. I had a guy who is in the trade listen to it and he confirmed it was a bearing noise. Its a 6 speed box which has done 52,000 miles...

    The car has done 50,000 miles. It's a 6speed box and wines when coming down from 30mph to 0. Is the box on the way out ?

    Hi guys, I’ve got a 2005 Saab 93 1.9 TD 150 BHP and I seem to have developed a quite major problem with my Saab that I am unable to narrow down after trying. Just a bit of history for you. I’ve had numerous problems in the past with the usual culprit the EGR Valve! I don’t tend to do many...
