    THIS QUERY DOES NOT RELATE TO 5TH BOW LATCH MOTOR Hi all, got a case of a rebellious roof - everyone's worst nightmare but very common on the GM 900 as far as i can gather. I am based in germany and after visiting a Saab garage they told me the problem was the RH (passenger side) 5th bow...
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Started on the weekend, just as we were driving to catch the ferry. Spent 500 miles of motorway driving in France with my hand pressed against the stick to keep it in 5th. Everytime I accelerate it just pops out. Going down hill or on the level it is fine. Noticed that there is about three...

  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I am looking seriously at a 1991 9000 turbo that will not shift into 5th. It feels as though the linkage is not lined up correctly. The car shift into 1-4 just fine, not completely perfectly but it does have 200k on it. When attempting to shift into 5th all that I get is a grinding feel and...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi everybody - i am new to forums of this sort but my car has forced me into it. OK so i have a10/11 year old Saab 9-5 TiD 3.0 which i have had for a year and it has been relatively reliable for a car of that age. It was bought with about 67k miles on, FSSH and so on so not a bad car. It is a...
  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    So recently I removed the old shift knob that had broken loose and installed a new shift knob. Everything went well until a few days later when I tried to shift into fifth gear and it would not work. It won't shift into 5th even when stopped so I was a little concerned that all of the pulling...

    Hello, first time here so be nice lol :P I am thinking of buying a 2003 Sport Sedan 9-3 Turbo 6 speed. Car is in pretty much perfect condition, except the 5th gear Synchro is bad "needs to be replaced" as stated in CL ad. However, my cousin has an Eclipse with ALL the synchros shot and he can...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    i have a 2003 Saab estate manual with approx. 200k miles on the clock, and recently its starting jumping out of 5th gear. Seems to be worse when warm, and certainly worse when towing. Is this just down to a worn gearbox ? any remedies at this stage ?

  16. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi there, I was just gearing up the motorway today and when I tried to go from 4th to 5th gear it wouldn't budge into the groove for 5th - like it locked or something. :crazy: So I went back to 4th, cruising at a cool 50mph while the world sped past me. A few miles down the road, (it was my...
  17. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi I know this subject has been covered numerous times but what I am after is a photo of a new 5th bow microswitch. My roof is playing up and the Tech II tells me it's the 5th bow switch. Now my switch looks like it's bent all out of shape so if I had a photo I could check if it is correct and...

  19. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello, My 2001 93 aero has just covered 108,000 miles and on a trip to Manchester this weekend it jumped out of 5th gear twice on the motorway. It is fine in every other gear and stays engaged but you can simply push it out of 5th with very little force. It will sometimes "crunch" going into...
  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, I after yet more advise please. My 95 2.0t airflow seems to have a sticky fifth gear. I have no problem engaging it but it's a little stiff to disengage. There is no horrible crunch or anything, it just needs a good pull to disengage. Any idea?
