    I have a 99 SAAB 9-3 SE 4 door hatchback. I need to adjust my headlight but the headlight adjustment knobs on the rear of the headlight are not working to adjust them. In the manual it talks about adjusting them from the facia mounted switch? Can anyone elaborate on this please?

    Hi Team, I picked up a 2004 9-3 Aero Convertible for a few pennies the other day. Other than a few niggles which i'm working out, she's in very good nick for a 14yo car! One area i'm unable to find much info on is roof adjustments. The roof is in perfect condition, only one niggle with the...

    Hello all, I replaced my aircon compressor of my 2000 9.3 Aero last week with a used one, as the old one was well and truly stuffed. Interesting job, I must say.... The next issue I have now is that the new compressor spins well, all bearings are good, but the clutch will not disengage after...

    I have just had new tyres fitted and 4 wheel tracking carried out. Nearside front wheel is right at the maximum for the camber and caused the last tyre to wear excessively on the edge you can see.

    Is there a maximum to which these can be adjusted? The driver side wheel worked perfectly, but the passenger side not so much. I adjusted it slightly, but then it stopped turning and the wheel was still moving freely. Any advice or info? Thanks.
