  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello all, The power steering failed on my 2006 Saab 9-3, 1.9 Tdi, 120. I had a new electric power steering pump fitted, but after about a week or so the power steering failed again.I brought it back to the garage, they fitted another new pump but still have no power steering. They then...
  2. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Good Day, fellow Saabists! Many will recall my recent ramblings on a deceased fuel pump in my 1995 CSE. It was a replaced with a Walbro (actually a HighFlow Systems-modified Walbro) 225lph pump which was, until last night, working a right treat. Now, something has gone HORRIBLY wrong. The car...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Strange question, perhaps, but... The front load sensor on my car has failed (like everyone else's!). A new sensor and loom were ordered by my Saab dealership about a month ago - so far, no sign of them. Worrying, as an MOT is imminent. Does anyone find this usual with Saab parts - or these...

    The servicing spanner has come up on my info system again after only having the car serviced in November. The chap who serviced the car said he had reset the service clock but it's saying it needs a service already?? I have only done about 3000 miles since.
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just realised that I need to replace all four of the tyres on my estate :-( Currently fitted with Conti Sport Contact 3's and replacing like for like is going to be expensive I know Falken 912's have been recommended but wondered if they were any good in the longer term - wear rates, grip...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have read through several posts on this issue. Her nibs 2004 9-3 2.0T Vector. Windscreen and headlight washers not working. Windscreen wipers park wherever they are when you turn them off. Also intermittent wiper action gives constant action. I have checked the fuses and relay. So I...

    Hi all, Just purchased our first Saab. Its a 1998 9-3 2.0L SE Convertible. I love it! Just a few issues I hope you guys can help me with, Need to adjust the headlights up a bit, the dial in the cabin is set to 0 but still too low.

  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, Just having my EGR valve replaced for the third time on a 93 2.2 TiD 2003. Bought part on Ebay due to massive back orders of 14 weeks. Garage found the old EGR welded to the Inlet Manifold which now also has to be replaced due to damage. No luck in finding part, Saab are suggesting...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello All, Jumped in my 2005 1.9 TID today and engine management ligt was on. Noticed yesterday that engine was running a bit lumpy, but put this down to the low amount of fuel, so put fuel in? Drove to work today and it is worse? Immediate reaction was EGR Valve, had a new one fitted this...
  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My 04 93 2.2 TiD Arc is utterly taking the p*** out of me! The engine light came on, whilst on the M62 doing around 50mph this morning, I've just had the car serviced, had the EGR valve replaced 3 months ago (after a similar carry on!) not to mention a long list of other constant, unrelated...
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Having a bit of a race with an old rover 6 series the other day, revving quite high and suddenly at +100mph the car lost power and EML came on, (rover absolutly blew me away) anyway, had a new EGR valve fitted last month so its probably not that, Last time it came on I think the code said...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Just driving back from East Midlands Airport up the M1 at around 80mph and the blasted Engine Management came on, car briefly went into limp-home mode for about 5 seconds then back to normal, car drives 100% but light has stayed on for 2 further journeys tonight. No starting problems either...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have picked up a new indicator/cruise control stalk from Car Parts Connexions for £30 and I need a bit of clarification on the pedal switches. Will my MY03 2.2 TiD Linear estate have these switches already fitted or is only the wiring and connectors there? I have downloaded the fitting...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Calling 9000CS Non turbo, non DI Saab owners, enthusasts, experts!! Took my coil off when trying to sort a starting problem and relied on Haynes manual to tell me which was pos and neg. Ubnfortunately it doesn't tell me anything of the sort. Wires are blue and green/white. can someone tell me...
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Suddenly,and correctly, I'm getting the 'front light failure' item in the display! Somewhat stupidly I changed both dipped beam bulbs...upgraded too..without checking fuses. Still getting 'failure'....same o/s dipped beam? Fuses checked and found to be ok....where should I be looking next? Your...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My reverse gear has now become so temperamental its really bugging me! I was originally told it would be the syncromesh, however, even with the engine off its impossible to get reverse on a hill and generally no easier than with the engine on.....which to me, makes me think its not the syncro...
