  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Does anybody know the size of the rear calliper carrier bolts? I haven’t got any female Torx sockets that big never needed them before :mad: Want to make sure I get a set with one big enough. Any bigger ones anywhere on the car?
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    So typically I have fixed my own car issues by either looking them up or asking someone. This time I am stuck. I went to go put the top down on the way home from work today and it told me to remove the cargo carrier, but I have nothing attached to the car, and the truck is empty. Any advice?

    Hi, I'm looking for roof accoutrements to carry a couple of bikes on my 4-door 2000 9-3. The feeling I get is that roof mounted is better, but I don't mind the boot kind. I don't have a tow-bar thought. Roof bars on their own that I can add bike racks etc to later would also be of interest...

    Hi all, I just bought a SAAB branded 3 cycle carrier from eBay, which is great but the seller had no key, so I can't lock it to the towbar....I don't really fancy losing a cycle rack AND 3 bikes, so I need to figure out if there is a way of replacing the lock mechanism. My first thought is...
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have an oil leak from the left hand driver housing area. I am not sure whether it is the drive shaft seal or the "O" ring seal inside the housing cover. Since to replace either (or both)seals, the inner drive shaft and cover has to be removed, I have decided to replace both. I am also...

    Hi Have just stripped the thread in my hub where the bolts securing the caliper carrier go through. Whats the best course of action? 1. replace the whole hub - costly and a right pain or............ 2. fix it with a helicoil kit? If I do fix it with a helicoil kit, does anyone know what size...

    Just noticed that my Aero has the 'carrier bag' holder in the boot. Anyone else got one, were they standard on '06 > models? Good idea if you only have 4 bags!! Mr Linear.

    My wife has just asked about getting a cycle carrier for her 5-door classic 900 (with the standard spoiler). I've tried searching the forum and can find quite a few suggestions for all the other Saabs, but not for the classic 900. Does anybody have any experience or a suggestion (Halfords...

    who can please advise me on whether there have been any developments on the bike rack/ cycle carrier front. I have a 9000 CSE and want to carry 3 bikes - rear mounted (easier for preggy wife) or roof. Which is best option, quality, reliability, ease of use etc? I know that's a lot of...
  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I'm about to change the front wheel bearing later today. The hub carrier is bolted onto the bottom of the strut which saves removing the whole strut. My question is if I do this will it upset the camber angle when I bolt it up ugain or is it non adjustable with inteferance fit bolts. Thanks guys.

    Can anyone recommend a good cycle carrier for use on my GM900? Haven't decided yet whether to go for rear or roof mounted. What are the benefits/drawbacks of each? .....or should I just buy a 4x4? Cheers
