    this might be obvious but does changing the drop links have any affect on the tracking? I'm sure it wont but just making sure as I have just changed mine

    Hi there, this thread has evolved since starting it earlier and i am getting to the root of the problem. My 2003 9-3 Aero is having boost issues, no/low boost, then sometime full boost. the 2003 car was fiotted with an sai system and EGT sensor, it was a bad idea and Saab stopped fitting them...

    Hi all, Changed the purge valve on my v6 today due to usual difficulty to start after refuel and a related fault code. All went well up until disconnecting the black connector from the old valve. Twisting and pulling ended up snapping it! I've held it in place with electrical tape at the...

    Seem to be on here a lot lately. This is just my findings which may help someone in the future. My wife normally uses the Saab, so when I got in it last week it was a while since I drove it, noticed a noise which increased with speed. Thought it was probably tyre noise due to low inflation, so...

    2005. 125k. When driving through the gears it holds back in each gear when having just changed up. Lets say I have just gone from 2nd to 3rd but not accelerating hard it seems to hold back for a second after the gear change. This has been the most troublesome car I have ever owned. It has...

    Well thats the first bit of work done on the 9-3. It wasnt too bad. The old one was just totally choked up. I expected the MPG to go up but it hasnt? I havent cleaned the MAF yet? Would a new air filter help - not that I have checked the old one yet. Anyway, its still better, 41mpg, on a...

    I'm not saying they're tricky to get back in or anything ..... But I did have to stop mid way & have a shave ........... :eek: I had a quick look at the dipped beam too..... Saw it was a diff setup for bulb removal & decided that I might just leave those for another occasion ...... Anyone got...

    Hi All, Had my 9-3 1.9tid for about a year now and very happy with it - it has a FSSH up to 79k but I'm wondering if that covers a Cam belt replacement? Thanks, HB

    Hi there, I am new to Saabs, I bought an 07 plate, 93, 1.9 Diesel Sportswagon last November with 48k on the clock. I had it checked out with the RAC, private sale, all okay. Or so I thought. About 6 weeks later I noticed the car sounded awful when I restarted the car when it was warm (on the...

    Reading up on this it seems 2003 & some 2004 models are fitted with this contraption. They fail at around 24 months 50k miles and must be changed to prevent the SAI pump from failing. The SAI pump is £300.00 approx so not a chap fix given the value of the cars. The valve was £55.00 approx. The...

    I drive a 54 plate 9-3 1.9TiD 120Bhp and the turbo seems to be a distant memory. I lost it after the really cold night that we had, -18 in my area. From this point it went, wasnt gradual it just went the next day i started the car. Since then it has driven really sluggish with the gas pedl to...

    I haven't used the forum for a while, and in that time the site underwent a facelift. Having just posted, I now find that my private name is showing on the boards instead of my previous user name (which obviously offered privacy). Why did this happen and how can I get my previous user name...

    Had my calipers changed today as they were binding and driving home from the garage I noticed that the pedal has further travel than it used to have and it feels a bit spongy. If I punp the pedal 3/4 times it stiffens up but then steady pressure on it pushes it down. The brakes seem to work ok...
