    Just returned from. after driving there in my lovely, working Saab 93! Collected the car and the gearbox is totally trashed after they recommended changing the transmission fluid to clear a gearbox message on my dash. They also charged me £150 for the privilege. Returned the vehicle to the...

    I am a first time Saab owner. Today my resonator rusted out and broke.. It is suggested to me that i could just remove it and attach a straight pipe. I am aware that that would be the cheaper route but am concerned about quality and performance!!?? And the effects removing it will potentially...

    Well, I've had a lovely day today! After getting my Saab last week I thought it would be wise to get some locking wheel nuts as it didn't have any on the 17 inch alloys at the time. So I went on ebay and found myself some genuine Saab locking wheel nuts. New condition, still in the packet with...

    hi guys, the drivers door on my parents facelift 9-3 won't open from the outside, it will open from the inside however. What do you think the problem may be? I was thinking maybe broken door lock actuator Thanks Aaron

    Hi, has anyone got some pics of replacing a rear window in a'97 NG900s convertible. I broke it last weekend and now I'm in a world of pain because I've hurt my wife's prize possession..... How hard is it to replace the window? Or is it easier to find a second hand top and replace that? The...

    I was pulling out of a driveway last night and i must have ran over a huge block of ice because i heard a breaking noise and this thing was hanging off. I am also getting a beeping noise and the oil light occasionally turning on for a second or two above the turbo gauge every now and then...
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have a 97 9000 SAAB and the turbo quit working last week. It is also dumping oil into the intake and I am guessing into the exhaust also cause of the amount of smoke pouring out of it. My question is, this is my sons car and he does not need the power anyways, can you disconnect the lines...

    Hi folks, I recently bought a 77k miles 2001 2ltr turbo convertible in blue with black interior, there was what I now know to be a common oil starvation problem with it, I have had to strip it as worked out to be too expensive to replace the engine with being the auto, and there's no way it was...

    Right, so I have two broken rear coil springs . Just ordered Sachs replacement online and this is what I get: Yes, two different springs. Same part numbers on the boxes... I have contacted the seller and got sent another spring, but it is the straight one, like the one on the right. I am now...

    I have a 2001 9-5 Aero, and for 2 years its basically been like living a dream. Fast, Comfy, fast, smooth, fast, quiet, fast... you get the idea. Anyway it appears to have immobilised itself, the symptoms are: NO reaction to the key remotes AT ALL (2 sets of new batteries...) No flashes or...

    Hi all, I have a 2000 Saab 9-5 Aero that has approximately 155K miles on it. I just picked it up from the shop this morning where it had the water pump and transmission mount replaced. It was driving great (and very quiet!) for the 15 minute drive to work and most of the 15 minute drive home...

    Ok, so my recently purchased (Sep 2010) approved used Saab (1.9TiD 2007) did 50k so far and broke down twice in the past 2 weeks. First time it was the EGR valve, this morning it was the alternator. I've browsed the forum and those two problems seem to be quite common. So I guess my question is...
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Well isn't that just special... I finally get my turbo working as it should, smooth out the idle by replacing the 100,000 mile used spark plugs, fix the whole central locking/window switch module and my reward is less than thrilling. The car is smooth and more powerful than it's ever been since...

    Well I was going into the City centre and my 02 Aero just suddenly went POP! When I pulled over I found out the pipe going into the top the the throttle body had ben blown off (explains the pop) Im guessing this is from the intercooler? My question is.. what is causing the pressure to build up...
