    Well today after work, lucky me as I finish at 3....I took the Saabillac to the best exhaust/tyre shop in my town and asked them if they'd check the wheel alignment as it has never been done in the six years I've had the car from new and in that time I've replaced the front struts/drop links and...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    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. The garage could not adjust it anywhere past the maximum setting allowed, any ideas? I don't want...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    So I just had three tyres fitted (two front and one at rear) and really happy with the tyres. My reason for changing the rear was - after having the tyre off to have a puncture repaired I realised that the inner tyre had badly worn. When speaking to the mechanic he said that he checked the rear...

    Hi all. Was hoping someone might be able to help me as this is proving to be driving me up the wall... I've got a 2006 9-3 Vector Sport. For a while now, there seems to be a sort of squeaking sound when I go over bumps at low speeds. Anyway it didn't cause a problem so never bothered me. I...

    Hi All I took my driver side wheel off at the weekend, removed the calliper spring, realised I needed tools that I didn't have so decided to put the spring back on and replaced the wheel. I tightened the bolts very firmly before I let it off the jack and then retightened on the ground. The...

    Thats the car booked in for next Friday to get the wheel alignment done. The rear tyres are wearing on the outside and the tyre noise from the front is murder. Not sure if they just took the front ones off and moved them to the back and put new on the front. I doubt the alignment has been...

    Following some uneven tyre wear I had the Alignment checked on my 9-5 Aero estate MY2001. Came back as being done ok on the fronts but told it required 'shims' to correct the rear wheels camber??! Has anyone come across this before?...no previous uneven tyre wear and apparently no means of...

    Hi guys, Recently got car checked for stability control failure at a saab garage. 4 codes came back, steering angle sensor, cim plus two more I can't remember the name of. Anyway, noticed when steering wheel is on the level whilst driving, the car goes left. While on a straight road I have to...

    Hi, I have a 2011 Aero Carlsson and the wheel alignment is out. My local tyre fitters don't seem to have any numbers for the 4 wheel drive models and my local Saab dealer hasn't been able to find the correct settings. Any help appreciated .... Andy

  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I dearly love my 95 Aero (only 106K miles). Picked the car up the day before yesterday. At first the steering seemed fine, but then when turning on an expressway ramp - suddenly it was as if I had no power steering at all. On the straight away it was fine and on the off ramp it was fine...

    Hi Can anyone recommend somewhere where I can get the alignment checked/adjusted on my 9-5 in either the Reading or Guilford areas, somewhere that does all four wheels using laser equipment, and can get the steering wheel straight? Many thanks

    Hi all Can anyone suggest somewhere reasonable to get 4 wheel (laser) alignment done in or around Bath? My 9-3 is a little noisy so thought i'd get the alignment checked. Thanks for the help Mark
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi guys. I need to slightly adjust the horizontal line of my headlights as there is a bit of a gap between both beams. It doesn't need to be much so I need to know if looking at vehicle from front I need to move pasenger side towards drivers side so on plan clockwise - if that makes sense. Do...

    Hi - my rear Michelins on my Aero were badly worn on the inner edges and Ive replaced them yesterday with P6000's - now I need to know where I can get a proper wheel alignment done to prevent this happening again - anyone know where I could go, also are there factory settings or will any...
  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just had new tyres fitted and the fitter pointed out some odd wear on old ones so decided to have alignment check done. The tyre place don't do it themselves so asked where they'd take their own in Norwich. I was pinted / aimed at a company called Autotest on Meteor Way on the airport estate in...
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Couple of questions, firstly, is this possible on a 9000 Aero My96? Or is it just the front that can be done? I've just replaced all the bushed and engine mounts and it doesn't feel as stable as I'd expected, or as stable as it did before! Second question, a long shot I know! Does anyone know...

    Hi all, Looking for an answer to what the rear camber angles my 2004 9-5 aero Hot on 17" rims should be and is it adjustable in anyway?. I bought the car with 52k on the clock Jan 09. I noticed in the service history it had 1 rear offside radius arm bush changed under warranty at 40K. I'm a bit...
