  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Started to notice a high pitched whine from under the bonnet, which goes up in pitch along with engine speed. Does this suggest imminent turbo problems? Any ideas, please? Thanks

    I have a battery drain on my sons car of 1.5 amps caused by MAXI fuse #30 under the hood. Car will not start with fuse pulled. I think it feed the brains of the car or security system of some sort. Anybody know what this fuse feeds and how to go about running down the problem, short or ground? A...
  5. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, I have just joined and this place looks like an excellent resource of information. I have a 2000 Convertible which could ideally do with a bonnet, I have found some on eBay in the correct colour (the 257 blue) but they are from hatchback models, so want to be sure they fit. Unless anyone...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    2011 model year. So, I finally got time to look at the problem with the release cable that wasn't working. I was going to use the 'brute force' principle of getting mole grips on the cable by the lever, but you can't get access to it, even with the lever in your hand. I then removed all three...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    ...release the bonnet! MY 2011 Where does the cable run? My dork of a neighbour reversed into my front bumper (drivers side) last weekend. Luckily only scratched the paint, but wondering whether the cable runs through there and has been squashed in the sheath - seems a coincidence! Had a quick...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I know the bonnet badge fade is a common fault by the looks of things, by what I've read ! I've only been a member for a day so bear with me , I've done a search , the last decent comment was in 2004, so ages ago ! I have just bought a 2001 9-3 hot aero, with yes a faded bonnet badge, looked on...
  9. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi All I Tried to replace the bonnet badge on my 2002 9-3 aero vert yesterday as I got a lovely brand new genuine Saab one to replace the old faded and scratched original. I purchased a trim removal tool from ebay and set about very carefully prising up the badge a little at a time working...

    Having googled to source a replacement bonnet release cable (under bonnet section to bonnet catches - believe it is part no 12793104??) I was taken back by the £40 price tag!! Mine failed and am running a temporary repair but would be interested in anyone selling a new or good usable 2nd hand...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I've stocked up lots of spares from my broken 9000's and 900's that I never need to buy new parts so am clueless as to who would sell me a release cable for my newly aquired Anniversary. Can somebody point me to a stockist please, thanks.
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I want to replace the bonnet on my 9000. I've read the Haynes manual - not that I trust it always - and it suggests removing the hinge pins. I've also noticed 2x bolts each side holding the bonnet to the hinge. Grateful for any advice on the best / safest way to get the bonnet off and on...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Noticed today that if I push down gently on the closed bonnet, there's a surprising amount of travel, though it feels sprung rather than loose. Is this normal?

    Good evening, I have just purchased my first Saab, a 9-3 Linear Sportwagon 1.9 TiD 2005 plate, so far I must admit the driving experience has passed all expectations, my only problems are the rear wipe blade / arm and the bonnet badge. Rear wiper blade / arm - This is currently not working, the...
  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi All...... Back again ! :) I have a feeling I may have left this too late! but allow me to elaborate.... I wanted a red bonnet badge for my 9-3 that I am in the process of revamping... But initially was not worth worrying about, as I had many other more pressing things to buy before...
  16. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi I noticed that yesterday. White/blueish smoke coming from under the bonnet. I found a place where it is coming from. When I put my hand near I can fill a leak. I need to know what part is that. I may need new pipe or seal. I took some pictures of it. Could you help me identify it please...
  17. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, My bonnet has a few deep chips (actually lime damage which has eaten through the paint) that wold necsitate a complete respray rather than a touch up. If I can get hold of a matching replacement bonnet is it an easy job to take the old one off and fit the new one? Also, does anyone know...
