  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    Fitted a DAB head unit on my facelift 9-3 few weeks ago , and as normal came with the internal stick on DAB antenna, As always with them a bit hit and miss , Also I was having problems with FM reception before fitting this unit , l So I went and brought a better aerial from dynamic sounds...
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    It looks like I'm going to have to replace the HID ballast in RH headlight. Head light is intermittently flickering and the warning light in the dash is coming on. Replacement prices are very expensive at at £180 - £200 for the 12 pin LAD5G Valeo unit. The later 4 pin LAD5GL can be got for as...

  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi folks Having damaged the front lip on my 93 aero... again! i'm looking into alternatives. Ideally i would like a lip that is 4 inches high at the side to match the side skirts but then went up in the middle (below the number plate) where the factory fitted lip tends to catch on kerbs. The...
  5. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    Hello, new to the site. I've just bought a Saab 9-3 Turbo X (xwd, auto, saloon). Love the car, apart from the ride quality. Its only done 18500 miles, and has the 19" wheels and Pirelli tyres (zero neros?). I live on the island of Jersey (between England and France). The island is only 45...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all Thanks to earlier threads relating to the 9-3 blower motor resistor pack and it's failure, I have isloated this as the problem on my car (2005 Vector 1.9 TiD). My question for the forum, is there an alternative supplier of these (part number on item -PUK 006962R/11) that is cheaper than...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi There Just a quick one can anyone recommend a good alternative to the Boston s40/s35's for rear speakers in a 04 convertible? The S35's / S40's have been temporarly discontinued in the UK and according to the distributer they don't expect any more for a good few months. Are these as good...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    One of the jobs I haven't gotten round to doing yet (mainly due to cost) is changing the atf on my 5-speed auto Aero. I don't want to put it off any longer as the cost of a new box greatly outweighs the cost of the fluid. So, i've been doing a bit of research and may have found an alternative...

  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I walked past a 9-5 last year which had a different badge on the bonnet. It had a black background and a picture of what appeared to be a fighter jet / plane. Don't think it had SAAB on the badge. I've had a look on Ebay and can't find anything - are these official SAAB badges? They do look smart

  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    When we got our 1997 NG900 Vert it was missing its CD Changer from the boot. Do I have to source a specific Saab unit or are any others a simple plug-in replacement? The head unit is standard and the plug for the changer is a round one with lots of pins arranged in a square pattern. I have...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    The reception on the radio in my 9-5 wagon is very poor. I've been told that the aerials in the side windows are not long enough to give enough gain. Is there a solution to this (assuming that the aerial is the problem)? I'm thinking of a complete replacement with something that will be...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Given that our cars are all getting older, and more posts appear regarding MOT failures and general inability to see with ageing lights and the prohibitive cost of new units, I suddenly had a (rare) thought. In the bizarre world of kits cars, people do some very strange things, including turn...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    In case someone else hasn't posted this before, there is a low/no cost alternative to replacing the original soft bushes at the upper torque arm on a 9000. I did it over the weekend on my front (engine end) bush temporarily. The bushes need to be in good condition in the first place - so this...

    Need to carry more people? Need to carry more stuff? Then what you need is a bigger vehicle!! Don’t want to buy a huge hulking SUV? I can understand that. They’re way up high, they weigh too much, they look bulky and very unattractive. If you’re looking to carry people, or stuff, and...
