    Anyone know anything about baulkhead cracking on the 9-3 convertible (2003) and the brace you can fit to prevent it happening, whether it's worth doing and the cost it would be

    Sorry if this has been covered a million times before but how common is the Bulkhead issue on the 93? Does it affect certain years or body styles more than others? Neil.

    Hi there I have just taken my 1994 900 SE for its MOT and the only thing it failed on was "Steering component mounting prescribed area is fractured", garage said the bulkhead is flexing when steering. Absolutely gutted! The car is in really good condition apart from this so unsure...

    after noticing an increased vague feeling from the the steering on my 2002 9-3 aero RHD, I thought i would get the the lovely wife to move the wheel while i had a good look at the rack. there was a small amount of lateral movement, 1-2 mm that I would suspect is the movement in the bushes, then...

    Hello all. I just have found that my 9-3 suffer from a bulkhead crack. I got quoted by a saab for £900 to get it fixed and I have to say that is a bit too much for my pocket considering I have just paid nearly two grands for a car. So just wondering if anyone knows a good garage anywhere in...

    I sold my 9-3 Aero SS a few months ago and bought a (mint) 9-3 Aero coupe to replace it as I'd had a Viggen a few years back and always felt it was a better built car even though I was aware of the dreaded "Bulkhead issues"! Anyway turning into my drive the other night I was sure I felt...

    Hello everyone, I am a new Saab owner, this looks a great site! Trouble is, I wish I had seen it before I bought my car last week - its a lovely 2000 9-3 SE, 135000mls, what a car! Drives lovely, loaded with toys, and very very cheap - £300 with some MOT/tax. Of course I expected to do some...

    All mention of the cracked bulkhead issue seems to be from the UK. Is this issue isolated to right-hand drive cars or something? I sure hope so. So, far I have none of the symptoms. I've had my 1999 9-3 for less than a month, and it's got the millage where others have had the problem (125 000...

    My car has been diagnosed with the dreaded bulkhead problem :( I'd just started to enjoy my TiD SE 9-3, when I noticed the clunk and play in the pedals when steering left to right. I e-mailed Saab GB, who asked me to take my car to a dealer for a free check. Dropped into Squire Furneux in Welwyn...

    Hi folks.. Just been reading about the bulkhead seperation stories on here. Being a begginer with 'er indoors' 900 conv, I would really appreciate if somebody could tell me where to look (if at all) for this. I have read all the posts about garages and recalls etc, but no one mentions where the...

    Just been diagnosed with the dreaded bulkhead seperation and have been quoted £500 +VAT to fix. Anyone know of someone that can do it for less as I've already spent £850 on a gearbox in the last 4 months!
