    Hi guys, I've been playing around a lot in my new Saab after buying it last month and having great fun. The previous owner had done all the hard work installing an aftermarket stereo and replacing some (but not all) of the stock speakers. I have now installed my Sony MP3/CD/iPod all singing...

    Does anyone have information on the passive RFID tag within the key needed to start the car? Somewhere to find the technical information of its operation would be great! Yes, this is a public forum. On the other hand, it's my car, and who is to say I shouldn't be able to know "what's under the...

    I broke the drive axle on the drivers side and replaced it. Now there is a terrible "growling " noise comming from the transaxle I think. In any case the noise is coming from up front in that area, hard to pinpoit the excact location. Is there a common fix or malfunction to explain this noise?

    Not a car person by any means but I dont mind getting my hands dirty after doing some research. Just wanted a little reassurance that I'm on the right track. In summary: About 5 years ago, annoying scratchy-shrieky sound from middle of dash, down by ACC controls started. Had it in to Saab 5...

    Hey forum- Great info and resources. As a relatively new Saab owner, I am in need to know: The CD player. allegedly, the previous owners' daughter put a quarter in the CD slot. Results? It doesn't play. So...how do I take that unit out of the dash? Secondly: The digital info-screen that...

    hi all, i am looking for some tasteful mods for my aero 5 door hatch and am wondering which of the following options are better investments as i really can't decide: jetex 2.5" catback VS elkparts jt 3" catback - i really only want something VERY subtle, basically the right sound only when...

    I'm new to fiddling with saabs, but here goes. I've just (nearly) bought on e-bay a used hirsch stage 1 ECU, and I was wondering if anyone had ever fitted a used ECU upgrade. I've got a reliable garage (millenium saab, charlton, london - 020 8858 9300 - nice bloke, good rates) to fit it, he's...
