  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi All, So I replaced front and rear pads and discs. I had no problems with rear pistons, pushed back into place no problem. Got everything back together and checked the handbrake. Nearside is holding great, offside not so - wheel is still spinning when handbrake engaged all the way up. I...
  2. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Have a sloppy Auto Transmission Gear selector lever where the play is greater in N as in position D. So, according to the WIS I can adjust the selector lever cable by "Lifting up the Cable Adjustment Clasp" that connects in the Engine Bay just above the mid point of the Gearbox and underneath...

    Can some kind soul tell me how to adjust the handbrake on a GM900?
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Can't find any info on adjusting xenon headlights for left/right alignment on my 2004MY Aero, neither Haynes nor the handbook have the info. Before I touch anything, does anyone here know which direction the adjusting screws move the headlight - is it clockwise or anti-clockwise to move them to...

    Is it possible to adjust the position of light beam on the road. As mine barely shine beyond the bonnet. with the headlights off the fogs would be useless. Ian.
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have a 2004 9-5 Aero complete with lovely Xenon headlamps. Last night they did their shuffling about on switching on, but instead of levelling correctly, dropped to the minimum (with warning lamp on dash - the one that is NOWHERE in the manual !!). Bit scarey on country roads......I was...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, Got a quick question about my 2004MY 9-5 Aero estate. It's recently started to not drive straight, ie I have to steer a little to the left to go in a straight line. Tyres are brand new and I recently had the tracking and alignment done, but off I went again to get it sorted. Place I...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I'm about to take my 9-3 convertible to France and Belgium for the first time. The manual talks about using an Allen key to change the headlight alignment. I've tried this, but am not sure how far you turn the key to adjust the lights. Do you keep turning until it stops, or simply turn it for...

    Can the rear bumper cover be adjusted a little bit on an '02 estate?
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have a 2006 Aero Estate fitted with Xenon's and find that I am constantly outdriving the headlights on dipped beam ( full beam no chance) To explain this means that the focus of the beam is just too close to the car and not far enough up the road makinfg it difficult to read the road ahead...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Although I haven't had a really in-depth dig in the handbook, I couldn't spot any information regarding xenon light adjustment for driving on the right. The manual for the old 9-5 specifically covers it, clearly showing how to black out the correct portions of the lens. Obviously the xenons do...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    On my 2002 Aero last week a warning light came on, I stopped and looked it up in the manual and it was to do with the xenons. It looked like a headlight with a gear running through the headlight, and was orange just to the lower left of the fuel gauge. The headlights were certainly working, and...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi I picked My 97 Manual Aero Monday and to be honest I found it a bit flat after my LPT CSE, very straige as it has only done 90,000 miles. I bought a pressure guage today and some tubing and found it was only producing 3 PSI at 3000 rpm at full throttle with my foot on the brake. Why do you...
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, I seem to recall an earlier post a long time ago about problems & fixes for Xenon lamps on a 95 Aero 2002. Can anyone help, before I have to resolve to the main dealer? thanks - Joe
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Lifting this from my other thread, Has anyone done this ? Not for continental driving but to try and avoid the sharp cut-off just on the horizon that can be irratating in an Aero Estate ? AEB
  18. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Went to replace the rear pads on my 1989 8V 900 and found that the nearside adjusting screw seems to be missing meaning I cant adjust the new pads !!! Does anybody know what thread they are? Or where I can buy one seperately? Or failing all that where is the best place to get either a new...
  19. Saabscene: Performance
    Hi All. I have been advised that on an uprated ECU with an uprated Wastegate the 'correct' base boost pressure of 7-8Psi (Saab 9000 Manual Aero) is a little irelevant and that the wastegate should be adjusted until the correct peak boost is achieved as per the ECU settings. In my case this...

    Can anyone give me clear concise instructions on setting up the adjustable rear Koni shocks. I'm having problems with one of the shocks, doesn't appear to be adjusting at all.
