    When going over bumps on the M-way my cruise disengages - stiff springs and shocks don't help. Is there any adjustment to the clutch and brake pedal to reduce the sensitivity or do I need new switches?

    Hi, After the great help from my 'surging turbo' question. He's only other 'fault' i can find with the 97-Saab 9000-2.3 Turbo - P Reg of mine. When going slowly over a bump or hole I get a clunk or knock noise. It seems to only /mainly happen if steering wheel is turned to the right. Does this...

    Went over a speed bump yesterday, very slowly I hasten to add, only to hear a great "clonk" when going down the other side. Had a quick look underneath but nothing obviously damaged. However, when we got home and I was unloading I noticed the floor area in front of the rear n/s seat has been...

    I have the Saab standard phone-kit fitted with the bump on the passenger's side of the dashboard. It's always creaked when someone lent against it, but last week I had to climb out of the car via the passenger's side and managed to kick it off. The top clip (the one that's roughly s shaped) at...

    When driving over 30 mph say on a dual carriage way and I go over a pot hole or rough road the car seems to wobble from one side to the other then calm down. Any ideas??? The tyres are all fine.

    Greetings! Does anyone know if the steering rack needs to be "bump steered" after lowering the car? I know that the Porsches needed to have their racks shimmed to bring the tierod ends closer to level. Thanks in advance as usual. Regards, John

    Damn and blast I've found a split bump stop on my nearside suspension coil. So, ho hum, I suppose I should get it replaced and I guess it can't be done without removing the coil (which means special tools which I haven't got). The first question is how much am I looking at? And the second...
