    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)...

    Hi, I've just bnought my first Saab, a 1998 900 SE Turbo with 90,000 miles on the clock. It's in lovely condition but I suspect the wheel bearings may need changing. I've only driven it for about an hour and can't make up my mind. It just feels a bit grinding, the kind of feeling you get when...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    How much of a job, and is it worth it, to change the bottom end bearings on a 96 9000 Aero? It started rattling when I started it this morning, its not happened before and I turned it off straight away so I don't anticipate too much damage. Has anyone had the experience of doing this? Any pointers?

    Hi - Has anyone had to replace the gearbox bearings before? I believe they are also called pinion bearings...
