    Hi guys, new to the forum. I'm trying to replace the thermostat on my '95 900SE V6 and have drained the coolant, and removed the hoses, and have located the housing for the TS. But for the life of me i can't figure out the next step. I've posted pictures to help, what is shown is what i can see...

    Hi, I've been having an intermittent problem with my 2003 Aero. When I first got the car (about 6 weeks ago) it was regularly impossible to shift from P to D without pressing the shift lock release button. For a while thereafter it would shift with a bit of jiggling. After I took the SID out...

    Unless I'm going mad, I can't work out how to do this as a simple user - can I? If so, how? If not, could you please delete http://www.saabscene.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=31654743 as car is now sold. Thanks, CTS
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    During the trip to Hungary we both noticed, that with the car fully loaded and driving at speed on the autobahn, the car would pull strongly sideways on hard acceleration. Thought it might be worn front tyres or a soft shock absorber, but nothing untoward has been found. More recently I...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi I am hoping someone might be able to help me out. I have got a 56 plate 93 which has the boot release on the remote only and no key access. The problem is that I have gone and managed to trap a strap on a rucksack in between the 2 parts of the boot lock itself, IE between the male part on...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    At the weekend I suffered some damage to my car whereby the sump was cracked and I lost all my engine oil. The plastic shield that covers the sump has also been ripped off. Fortunately (and after a temporary bodge fix with metal putty) the car runs and doesn't seem to have suffered any damage...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I've just got home from work and went to close the door and it just bounced back open again as if hitting the seatbelt. I've checked the lock and the catch isn't fully open. I've tried using the key manually, the buttons on the fob and the switch in the car and nothing helps. To make...

    Filled my 900 with shopping and a small child in the back - and couldn't get the boot open when we got home :( Had a bit of a palava moving child car seats and emptying the boot through the back seat (5 door '90 SE) but now I need to get it open. I've no off road space to work on it at the mo...

    Reading the manual (as a last resort as usual!) seems to indicate that you can turn the radio on providing the key is not in the ignition. It goes as far as saying that it will turn off automaticaly after (I think) 1 hour to save the battery. But I can't get mine to turn on - is this normal?

  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I hope someone can help me here! My lovely 9-5 2.2Tdi estate 2005 (53) had a worn ignition barrel. My local (VERY good!) garage, replaced the mechanical parts and re-assembled the ignition. Unfortunately, the electronics failed to work (remote locking and disarming the engine immobliser)...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    We have a 9000 CDE and for some reason the brakes aren't seeming to work. I drove the car all day today and it was fine, but when I went to go to the store, it wouldn't shift out of park. When I hold the brake peddle down, the brake lights in the back don't turn on. I checked the fuses to see if...

  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Any ideas on this one!! I've searched the forum and read about the receiver being around the ignition barrel and something called a 'TWICE' unit, so sounds like yet another call to my local indie. However, I can't manually lock the car either. The key goes in but the barrel won't turn, and I...

    Hello, I have tried to add an image to my account, the one that shows on the left hand side of the screen. I can see it in my profile, looks great, but when I post it isn't there, the usual blank person image is there. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks in advance,

    I retightened the cylinder head bolts on my 97 Aero this afternoon, when I had finished I closed the bonnet. Now when I try to open the bonnet the driver side of the bonnet won't release but the nearside pops up easily. I presume the release cable is intact otherwise i think the nearside would...
