    Hi all! I bought my second Saab today, and it has some issues it needs resolving. I hope this is the right place to get help! :) About myself: I'm a Norwegian living near Hamar. That's 300km away (as the crow flies) from the Trollhätten Saab factory. I bet that's closer than the majority of...
  2. New Member Introductions.
    Hi all, Great site and thanks to all you out there. I have already replaced my steering pipes (yes both of them as they come as match pair and different connection of male to female joints) and as suggested I did struggle with the pipe joint at the rear of the engine to the steering rack. And...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello all I'm just wondering if anybody has ever experienced the kind of weirdness I'm getting from my ACC unit at the moment. Basically, at random times whilst driving it flicks into its calibration routine displaying ACC Calibr. Started on the SID accompanied by bleeps and random lights on...

    Hello all I'm just after any advice I can get with regards to the rear shocks on my 2009 9-5 2.3T Turbo Edition estate.

  6. Part number requests
    95 2.3t 2004 (B235E) front O2 sensor After a CEL and 'no response' code its been replaced with a Bosch. The new one has a shorter sleeve(?) fitting into the manifold than the old one, but Europarts insist it is the correct part based on the part number on the original. My mechanic is wary of...
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hey, I am facing a problem with 1993 9000, 2.3T. It doesn't have CPS at the usual location, usual to the newer Saabs that is. It is not here: No hole for it, no fastening bolt hole. As the cars history is unknown, then it could...

    I have a 2.3T with the B235L engine, meaning it has the same turbo as the aero's B235R. As I understand it the engine is essentially the same except for being 'detuned'. So is it possible to put in an aero ecu? I've been unable to find anything definitive either way. Thanks. And sorry if...

    Just an fyi post really folks in case someone is interested. When I was renewing the timing chain and guides ( engine in car) bit of a job but thats another story, I decided that I would remove the balance system due to a fear of failure. I left the shafts in bored and tapped a grub screw just...
