  1. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    The steering wheel in my 94 900 S convertible moves up and down because the upper bearing in the steering column is shot. The column assembly is not available new. I could probably find a replacement bearing if I was able to get the column apart. This is a common problem and I would like to hear...
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Guys, Just completed this job on an '02 Aero saloon. Took a long time to track down since I had already replaced the drop links and lower ball joints on both sides. A persistent clicking / knocking from the O/S was getting to me. I originally thought it could have been a broken spring since...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Anyone changed one of these? thought I had a rattling heat shield but turns out the bearing Is rattling. I've seen people mention it but on older engines, its on a 1.8t LPT model if that helps. Just don't fancy doing a new compressor and dryer unit.
  4. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Guys, Mrs P @ K's '02 Cabrio recently died about 10 miles from home. Thinking it was a duff battery or alternator I went on a recovery trip to get it going again. Started straight away with a jump from the Aero battlewagon and swapped cars so I could take it home. Now the strangeness starts...
  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, Wondering if you could help me diagnose a noise, if anyone has had similar? It first occurred back in April when I was on a 4 hour road trip, it only occurs sometimes and only when driving 60mph+ (therefore my usual commute when traffic doesn't top 40-50mph it doesn't occur)...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Seem to be on here a lot lately. This is just my findings which may help someone in the future. My wife normally uses the Saab, so when I got in it last week it was a while since I drove it, noticed a noise which increased with speed. Thought it was probably tyre noise due to low inflation, so...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    my car has a loud rubbing (hum,metal grinding noise) coming from the front passenger front wheel. I noticed that when you hold the wheel top and bottom there is a good bit of movement. also when you hold the hub top and bottom there is a bit of play. I took my car to a tyre place today to remove...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    so got the replacement bearing,it comes with 2 circlips, however looking at the hub i cant see where the clip is, do these have a habit of breaking? also the new bearing seems bigger than the original, maybe because its not in the hub?
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My Saab 9000 (93) 188.000 kms developped a noise a while ago. It's related to driving speed. A fried who heard it last week said it's a failing main bearing on the transmission (he had similar with his saab 900 many years ago). Is this a known problem? If so, any instructions on how to replace?
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, Much louder and noticeable when car is full but one (or both) of my rear wheel bearings sound like they are on their way out. Can't be sure of it being the issue yet, all the tell tale signs, mostly the noise. A teeny wheel vibration but when on my own in the car it's only the noise...
  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I replaced the front wheel bearing along with the lower control arm and bushing on my 99 9-3SE manuel transmission. It still makes the rattling noise when I turn? not as bad as before but it's there. What else could it be?
  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I've got a 2001 9-3 SE with 106K on it. I recently pulled the spark plugs and the #3 plug tip was touching the electrode - there was no gap. The tip wasn't beaten up, it just looked like it was pressed down. I haven't pulled the oil pan yet to check the bearings, but I'm wondering if bad...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi all, as a long time lurker I'd first off like to say thanks to everyone for all the invaluable info. I can usually find what I am after with a search but this time I drew a blank. I am replacing the slave cylinder on my LHD '94 9000CSE LPT, the second one in 2 months (first failed with...
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi All, Ok on Friday I went and had 4 new tires fitted and as seems to always be the case the garage find something else that needs doing at the same time, on this occasion it was my NSF wheel bearing having Excessive play (although I personally would say very minor). Anyway I was in Euro...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hello all, I've about arrived at the conclusion that I need to drop my '94 9000 2.3L transmission to replace the clutch and bearing but thought I'd run it past all of my best Saab advisors first. I can't perfectly envision this failure in my mind. First a few months ago I noticed the...
  16. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi All, I am getting a creaking when turning the steering wheel on full lock at driver's side and a slight rattling when going over uneven surfaces on passenger side (even after replacing drop links). I am going to replace both strut bearings and was wondering if the strut mounts actually have...

    Hey folks, just purchased a 9-3 ttid 180 and getting what seems to be noise which sounds like a wheel bearing on the way out. I have read searched threads that this could also be tyre related but im just covering all bases. Also going to do the water pump as the person i bought the car from had...

    Hi, After a service last week at 126,000 miles on my 2004 model Vector 2.2TiD 53 reg, the service completed OK, I collected the car and drove home. After a couple of short journeys, I did a return trip of 330 miles mostly motorway. On the return leg, I started to notice a droning/thrumming...
