  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    Just had a conversation with someone at Dynamic Sounds who told me he'd had a 9-3, 2008 model in yesterday with someone getting an £800 head unit fitted to replace the Nav unit and they couldn't get the steering wheel controls to work. Has anyone got this working? Dynamic Sounds don't seem to...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all After surviving for a couple of years with a bodged workaround to allow me to stream music via my phone's bluetooth to my original car audio (I think it's the AS3; car is 2002 9-5 Aero), Santa very kindly bunged me some cash to get an upgraded head unit. I spoke to my local installer...

    So someone wanted me to post all of the symptoms my car is having. So I have a 2003 saab 9-3 linear, 5 speed manual.. And there is a button behind the clutch pedal that would only let the car start if it was pressed, and that button wouldn't work all the time so I suspected the button was going...

    I currently have a 2005 Saab 93 1.9TID, I brought it because I was doing high miles for work. This has now changed so I fancy an AERO. I am taken by both the 93 and 95 variants. Is there anything specific to look out for with them. I would ideally like to do a swap, but will get mine up for...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all, Now, some of you may be aware that i had been having a problem with coil packs on my car - i've had 4 in 2 years. This was causing me to lose patience with the car to the point that it is up for sale. However, i think that yesterday i may have found the problem & a solution. Couldn't...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have an 07 9-3 Vector Sport, it has problems with both its keys. Sometimes the remote locking works and other times they don't. I have tried replacing batteries but this hasn't got rid of this issue - they either work or not. This is annoying to me so I started experimenting. Its either some...

    Hi Guys. Had my first Saab a week now (As it says above: 04 Aero Convertible Auto) and I'm just wondering what the MPG should be like on average. I almost hope you you're going to agree with the low figure I've been getting as otherwise it means I will need a trip to my friendly...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just thought I share the great news! After much smoking over many months on start up and when I boot it - Saab Fulham fixed a blocked breather pipe a few months back which greatly improved matters, so one near miss when I though my Turbo/bank balance was broke, then it started happening again...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Many moons ago (well, around 2004), not long after I discovered Saabscene, I had Eibach suspension fitted to my 1999 2.0 saloon which had been upgraded to 192bhp with the Saab chip. At that time I was running on the original 15" wheels (fun on the corners...not). I then bought some 16" ALU22s...

  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I've search for ages on the forum but cannot find the same issue as I have. Bought the car '95 Aero and key fob alarm was not working at time, no leds so assumed (wrongly) dead batteries. With new batts the leds light but nothing on alarm - even following Saabs advice on pressing the immob...
