    I fitted a new wheel bearing to my Saab 9-3 Vector Sports estate, yesterday, I had to wait for a new torque wrench to tighten the bolts as the manual says 210 nm ! only having few bolts to tighten I thought it would be easy but disaster, trying to get the E20 torx bolts to 210nm seemed extreme...

    Does anyone know the part number for the pinch bolt that connects the front wishbone/ lower control arm ball joint to the hub? I am going to be changing both wishbones soon and the Haynes manual says you must not re-use the bolt

    Just replaced front struts on my 2004 9-3 aero 2.0T. All went well until I over tightened the last bolt and it sheared off! :confused:Couple of questions, is it possible to drill out the remainder of the bolt without removing the suspension or will I need to replace the top mount. Finally will...

    Valve,cam or rocker...Not sure of the official name, but regardless, one is leaking. I can't find the fastening torque anywhere and I'm hoping someone can help here. On more modern vehicles the gaskets are normally fitted dry although there are some cars, like a BMW e39, I once owned, which...

    I spent an inordinate amount of time reading the threads on the PCV check valve, Crankcase Ventilation Pipe and the banjo Bolt. After thorough research and a lengthy wait for some parts I managed to complete my project and the vacuum is working superbly and the "check engine" light went off and...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi Folks, the subject says most of it... I noticed some creaking noises coming from the front area when driving over uneven surfaces and found that the uppermost of the two bolts that hold the C piece that goes round half of the gearbox mounting bush isn't there! As a result the box is...

    :confused:I can't find a diagram or a description of the bolt that goes where I have the red circle. There is no bolt there and there is a circular part at the end of the tube for the emissions control tube (pipe) shown. Note the red circle where the bolt goes to secure it. I think it needs a...

    Hi guys, I was trying to do my brakes and rotors/discs yesterday and I stupidly lost one of the caliper pins. Would anyone have a spare or know where to get one. I've been calling around as it's a very common part for Saabs, Volvos and Vauxhalls but they're all part of a full caliper set. I just...

    Hi Guys Servicing the car at weekend and 1 of the engine mount bolts is missing. Anyone know the part number. It’s the one on the drivers side at the bottom rear of the engine, the one that bolts to the car not the engine. Thanks

    So on my 95 9000 im getting a small oil leak front right side of the engine near head gasket. Found out it could be the head bolts needing a re-torque. my 9000 just hit 200k. What is needed to do this? Do I just take valve cover off then torque to 30 ft/lbs?

    Hey folks...I had a bolt fall out while driving and wanted to see if anyone knew the size before I have to pull one out from the other side to figure it out. This is a black bolt that runs through the front of the wheel well and holds up the plastic flap that sits between the wheel well and...
