    I think I've got the usual timing chain issue - a slight rattle when cold for about 2 mins, then quiet. 84k miles on the std oil change schedule. Can anyone advise whether that is likely to be just a stretched timing chain and could be fixed by winding on a new one? Has anyone done that? I'll...
  4. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    After a heroic effort we managed to finally clear our street from snow ourselves at the weekend. Now it's covered again with no ploughs / gritters in sight. Anyone used snowchains here? How practical or easy to fit are they? Do they actually work & how much do they cost? Cheers

    I have some snow chains that i bought for my 2005 9-3, but will probably fit all Saabs. They are the self adjusting ones that you just put on and they self tension. They cost a small fortune, but i only want £50 for them. I used them several times this/last year and they were worth their weight...

    I am due to travel to Germany in late December and I believe it is a legal requirement to have snow chains in the boot (and regardless it would seem a sensible idea anyway). However having never used or purchased snow chains before I am a bit flummoxed by the sheer choice! As they are going to...

    94 9000 Aero with 127K Grumbling near the pulleys cold and warm, at tick over and moving, going with engine revs -or is it a bearing? Going to check chain but if it's bad it will be repaired. Whilst in there - water pump also? Can someone recommend the supplier of the Timing chain full kit...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Ive never owned a car with timing chains before. All my previous cars have used a belt. When warm, the timing chains sound quite noisy, almost as if there slapping about a bit. There is also quite a bit of vibration on idle, yet when i hold the car (or drive it) at about 1300rpm, the noise...

    Hi everyone. I'm off to the alps next month in my 1.9Tid sportwagon. I've got 17 inch wheels and the handbook suggests that snow chains are only suitable for 15 or 16 inch rims. Has anyone had experience using snow chains on the 17inch wheels. There certainly seems enough clearance under the...

    Further to others who have asked this one, Can we replace the timing chains with the engine IN the car DIY style?

    Prior to an upcoming self drive ski holiday to France I have been looking at purchasing some snow chains & have come across a similar product ( latest stuff apparently) that is called a snow sock..................looks much easier to fit than chains & not too expensive BUT, are they legal in...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have recently bought a 1998 2L 120k 9-5 with knocking / rattle with an unknown history. The frequency is tied to the revs, Clutch in or out no change. The only way I can describe it is if you imagine a metal rule flicked over the edge of a desk and left to vibrate with a little growl to it...

    I have correct chains that fit the 17 inch low profile tyres on my Saab 95. I have checked them on full locks and seemed to be OK. Has anyone any experience on this.
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    OK - The old Aero has now done 155k miles on the original chain. I 'think' I can hear a bit of chain rattle now. Sounds a little like someone shaking a can of gravel at tickover when cold and goes away. It's on that side of the engine too. Baby due soon so don't want any chain snapping or...

    Hello all, Has anyone fitted snow chains to a 9-5 aero? Is it posible to fit normal 9mm chains, or will it snag on wheel arches, ABS etc ? Already have snow tyres on, but there is a reasonable chance of occasional need for snow chains as well. Can anyone from colder climes advise please cheers
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just thought i would share my knowledge with you that IT IS possible to change the Timing Chain + Guides without engine removal. It is NOT possible to completely remove the Timing Cover although it can be manouvred in various ways whilst raising and lowering the engine on a jack. This give you...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    All this talk of timing chains has me fretting over a faint metallic rattling I can hear from my 9-5 2.0 SE. I can only hear it with the window open and with the autobox in "drive". When it's in "park" and with bonnet open, head in engine compartment, I can't hear it at all. Is this the dreaded...
  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just a thought that occured while answering another post. There's a lot of talk about getting timing chains/gear replaced when they get old & rattly, but has anyone actually had one let go & do any significant damage? The reason I ask is that my old 9000i had done 202,000 on the original...
