    Hello new member 9-3 Tid 2009
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    On an irregular basis there will be a cloud of smoke pour from the exhaust when idling after a temporary stop. Sometimes it is after coming off the motorway but other times it will happen in shopping runs. The vehicle performs normally and does not consume oil. Anybody got a suggestion?

    I have noticed a whirring noise coming from the engine bay of my 98my 93 2.0t convertable. I am assuming that this is the dreaded kneal of the oil pump going south....Being not very mechanically adept and as I have no garage, I will have to take it in to be looked at. Can anybody recommend...

    This is just a post so really I can share my pain with you all.. Couple of weeks ago I spent the Sunday cleaning and polishing the car to perfection. All gleaming in the carpark on the Monday morning until I got to the car at the end of the day and found the entire car covered all over in tiny...

    Hello, I have been running into problem after problem lately with my car and have single garage receipts circa the £600 mark. Just curious as to the extent Saab owners will go to to continue use of their gems! I know I tend to pay out rather than consider a swap. List to date of new parts [in...

    Hi all, I’m writing an article for Auto Express, on the high cost of putting small things right on a car. Something like a huge bill to replace a wing mirror after it’s been knocked off, or the £150 charge to replace a sidelight bulb. I’m really after stuff that relates to cars no more than...

    Hi Bill there's a red 2.3 T CD in your gallery, owner Jason. I think i recognise this car due to the Trent Saab stickers in the back. It was owned by a guy called Trevor Williams and this car was seriously quick but no one could find out why. A police traffic cop test drove it when Trevor...

    Mine's gone up 9% to over £1300 - from what I gather, we've got off lightly as far as the increase goes. Police bit has risen 10%. Any ideas why it's about 4 times the rate of inflation? Don't see any obvious improvements What's your increases?

    This seems a common topic, Nearside Wiper not running, or moving only 2"every time car started. Printed off Bill J WWW.SAAB9000.COM, repairing headlight motor, and got straight into guts. Eventually got it right down to motor,brush material had shorted the commutator, easily cleaned and...

    This one will trigger fond memories for a lot of you I'm sure! ;-) Excluding a set of wheels/tyres for £705 which doesn't really count - think mine is a measly £550 for a service and bits. Numerous ones in the £400's. There are some huge bills in my present cars history, but none for me...
