    When I was 14 I suggested my dad get a Saab, he got a 9000. I've had a Y2000 9-5 Aero manual estate, a 2007 9-5 aero estate with a slush box and wife has a 2009 9-3 Saab cabriolet 1.8 (2.0). I still don't know why I like Saab's so much, however it's the only brand of car that I've owned...

    Hi all, Newbie here, hoping for some help with the AF40-6 gearbox. Recently bought a 1.9TTiD Aero with 80k on the clock (to add to the Aero 2.0T already in the family!) Loving it so far, BUT, I'm noticing the gearbox slipping in 2nd and 3rd gear after it has warmed up. Nothing cluncky or...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    So took the motor for an MOT yesterday, failed on Brakes so new Discs and Pads all round on the way, pretty good considering mileage of 219k - tester said everything else was good. Anyhow, 2nd car started not to engage. Now I've already noticed a very worn linkage and worn gear lever as well...

    Hi all. I have a slight knock when changing from 1st to 2nd in my 2005 9-3 1.9 150. It does not happen all the time and I think it maybe linked to a slight knock I sometimes get on full lock. I was thinking engine mounts or drop links. Any ideas?
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    When driving 1st to 2nd is very stiff but no crunching, all gears select and drive fine. What could this be?
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have changed the DM flywhwheel, cluch and CSC (?) and since then 1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd, 3rd to 2nd are notchy and require a bit more effort than before. I have adjusted the cables from the gearstick and it didnt make much difference. The gear change was really smooth before. What have I...

  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    With the impending demise of my 2000 9-5 2.3LPT SE estate (175.5k miles) and what is looking like a hefty repair bill (turbo and head gasket) I'm waiting for the garage to give me the final outcome and the rough price to repair her but just in case its terminal I've been looking for another 9-5...

    Hi guys! Have an 05 manual 93 aero, when she's cold 1st to 2nd (unless I'm really slow and deliberate) crunches, not so it won't go into gear but as if Ive only got the clutch half engaged (clutch is always pressed to the floor) down shifting 3rd to 2nd and 2nd to 1st is absolutely fine. Any...

    Hi All I'm Stu; I've just purchased a 56 plate 9-3 TiD (120bhp) Saloon. I don't really know that much about them, although I have so far found out that the cambelt needs replacing at 40k miles and that they have alternator/ battery issues. Since the car I purchased wasn't particularly well...

    I am having a nightmare at the moment constantly worrying when approaching roundabouts, junctions etc as really struggling to get a smooth gear change - sometimes failing on an epic scale and moving off in 3rd gear just to get going! A friend has suggested changing the cables but haven't got a...
  17. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I am about to change my second dead window regulator (drivers side or left side looking forward) in as many years. Looks like rust has been the failure cause on both occasions. I know this is a common problem but does anyone have any ideas as to why the wires rust and snap so quickly and/or tips...

    Hi there, we have an 04 plate Mk1 Zafira, and one of our remote blip keys has gone AWOL leaving us with just the one key. The dealer want over £120 for a new key with remote blip, cut and programmed to our car. My question is, if I buy a 2nd hand key, fit it with a new blade, can I get it...
