  1. 1.9 150HP in front of battery fuse box missing - A/C issue

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi I have a problem with A/C. I'd like to start troubleshooting with checking fuses and relays. In EPC and on other websites I found that A/C fuse and relays sits in the fuse box in front of battery. On my car this space is empty. Any idea where is this located on car? I am driving 54 plate...
  2. Gear box oil change

    Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have a 99 Saab 9-3 SE manual 5 speed 4 door Hatchback. If I do an oil change using Redline which Redline do I want to use? MTL 75W80? Or MTL 75W90? I researched a little more and found that the MT 90 is what is recommended, is this correct? Thank you for your help.

    First post as I slowly bring a 2001 93 Aero Hot 2.0T convertible back to life. All black interior with sports everything. Highly recommend automatic gearbox centre in Hove. Had gearbox light which an expert had said was a solenoid in the box and unfixable. Hove said "pop by" they scanned it...
  4. Exhaust rear silencer box peeling

    Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    On my 2005 95 2.3t Vector sport saloon the rear silence box is peeling and does not look good. But my very reliable indy garage reassured me at the MOT (last Dec) that this is not a problem. The inner skin is visible in parts and looks ok. Any experience or advice on this? The garage will check...
  5. 9-3 cabrio auto box

    Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    This will probably have been asked before, but I would like help with it. My 9-3 autobox has a strange habit when you change gear, such as from reverse to drive when you leave the path. The indicator light that shows the position of the gearbox on the instrument panel goes out, and the car then...

    I have a 99 SAAB 9-3 SE 4 door hatchback. Does anyone know where i could get the diagram of the inside fuse box that tells which fuse is which? I don't think the one in my car is correct? Thank you.

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    This morning on our way to school my son pushed the release button and nothing happened. The GB door won't open up. It looks like the left release hatch is jammed. The right release hatch does work as I can hear it and see the left side of the door trying to open. Any hints of how to get out of...

  11. Relay positions on engine bay fuse box

    New Saab 9-5 (2010 - on)
    Hi, I've been trying to diagnose an electrical fault on my NG95. In my haste I've disconnected some (4) of the relays. After testing that they work I've put them back but i think I've put one or more in facing the wrong direction as some of them are 4 pins and can be connected in two ways...

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    As in the title - has anyone had any experience of swapping over the rear fuse box? Will a Vectra C fuse box fit? There are SAAB fuse boxes available but I'm waiting for a reply from the seller to confirm they have been unmarried from the donor cars. Looking at other posts on the net I...

  18. Auto box changes affected by DPF regen?

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Noticed that my 2007 TiD auto will sometimes produced a slightly awkward auto gear-shift. It's apparently random, and odd in that 99.9% of changes are seamless. It's not dreadful by any means, but it is noticeable. The car has now done 63,000 miles, and when I think back I guess it's done this...

    Last thursday (August 28th) I was on a back-road and went through a rough area on the road. My car shut off and since has not gotten power to the fuel pump. I had my girlfriend turn on the key with a tester connected to where there should be power. The float still received power but the pump...

    Having recently changed the clutch and slave ( Oh joy) on my 92 Turbo S. I now get grinding when putting it into second from 3rd. In an attempt to try and fix this issue I have replaced the rubber coupler between the selector and the gear box. I have also tried aligning the selector using the...
