    Dear all, Having had classic 900's in the past am now enjoying an '08 Vector 150 Tid S'wagon. However, since fitting 4 new Goodyears I have wheel judder despite having had the wheels balanced 4(!) times. Do I need to go to another tyre fitters for a second opinion or am I getting...
  3. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    Hi guys, I just bought a pair of Michelin PS2's for my Aero ttid. Great grip and holding on the road. I'm still having balancing issues with these tyres. Its only evident from 70 mph onwards. There is a shake in the steering wheel beyond this speed. I'm at a loss as to what it might be. The...

    Some people had disconnected balancing shafts in their 2.0T engines by removing the chain, instead of using a replacement kit (new chain and controlles). Does this affect the engine performance and service life? Thanks, AG

  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have just had a warranty claim for a replacement balancing shaft chain refused (not by Saab).

Until the chain failed I had never heard of balancing shafts and therefore would not...

  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    New tyres just fitted to my '96 Aero...some disagreement over optimum placing of the balance weights! Previous cars (Aeros) had weights stuck on inside the wheel....cleaner appearance and no obvious problems...now apparently they are better divided between inside of wheel and rim!! Does anyone...
