    Hello all. I drive a 2004 9-3 2.2 TiD and gear knob keeps spontaneously jumping off. How is it supposed to attach? Does it need to be glued or am I missing a part that holds it in place? John

Any...

    Hi all, I have an annoying tinny sounding rattle coming from somewhere underneath the passenger side rear. It is evident when going over bumps or uneven road surface.
