  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Alternator has gone on my 9-3 and I'm trying to tell the difference between the 3 available. There are 3 available on ECP, one Bosch (which I think it isn't) and two Denso. I've tried looking up the VIN but the numbers don't relate to the numbers on ECP. If I post the Vin is anyone able to...

  4. How to
    Guys, Just swapped the alternator in a Friends 9000 Anni and thought I'd give you the 'how to'. Most manuals suggest taking out the O/S wheel arch liner and taking out through the gap thus proferred. Since the fastenings are usually rusted solid around the lower edges, you can spent as much...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Picking up this old thread again. My wife had the car today and called me as the battery lamp came on when she started the car. I told her to drive home anyway (1 hour drive) and all went ok. Later I went out and checked and the lamp did not come on again. But checking the voltage when car was...

    I have a 2000 Aero with a bad alternator. When looking at replacements, they show replacements for '99-'00 as one part number. They also show 2001 - 2006 140A alternator as another part number. Is there any way to make the later alternator fit? Has anyone made the swap? To make it more...

    Hello, I have a 1996 900 my g/f mother wants me to replace the alternator on. I can tell it's gonna be a pretty big job. But, the only real question I have is about this plastic piece on the alternator the guy at the auto parts store called a hose. The one on the car does have this and I was...

    Well my alt gave up the ghost. Funny thing is the first I knew about it was when I went to start it yesterday morning. The car started perfectly the night before and no battery light on the way home but I did notice earlier in the day when I went to work that it was idling a bit higher than...
