    I had the unfortunate experience of hitting one of the biggest badgers ive ever seen at the weekend. It ran out from the side of an A road while I was doing 60mph. It's damaged the whole left side of my bumper. The bumper i can repair but other bits i'm not sure about. From what I can see, I...

  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    Afternoon folks, My '07 vintage multi CD player seems to be jammed. I know if I were to find a new one it'd need a palaver of untethering and retethering the unit. I wondered though if I were to take the face unit off mine and attached it to the main box of another whether it'd work in my...

  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've just acquired a 2006 1.9 150bhp estate. my previous car was an aging 2.3lpt. I didn't expect the diesel to be as fast, but I did expect more low down torque and therefore improved drivability. its really pretty gutless until the turbo kicks in at 2000rpm. I have yet to clean egr but I know...

  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello everybody. When the environment temperature is bellow around 14 Celcius or above 25 the idle is very smooth on my TiD. But when the car starts at a temperature between those values, or the engine has run and been shutdown for 30 minutes or a bit more, when I start the engine again the idle...

    Had to disconnect battery, all looked OK once date reset, now the DTE and Fuel Consumption(0.8l/100KM) is a tad off!!<br><br>... I think I might run out if I rely on the SID.

    Hello... I'm just about to collect my 3rd Saab so I thought I'd dive back into this place as I may need assistance with this one. I joined here a while ago when I had my 900 Talladega.
