    Hi Folks, I'm hoping for some ideas on a problem with my auto box which I'd like to be able to nip in the bud. Last weekend I took the Luxury Saab out for a quick test drive following my servicing the engine and changing the brake fluid but was slightly horrified to find the box not changing...

    <insert swearword beginning with F> Watched the video on Youtube - its an American vid so maybe less parts fitted to gouge skin and trap your arm such as the SIA kit and mine is an auto, even - soi admit defeat, it beat me. Removed the fan control plug and still not enough room to even reach...

    Hi all, Now I've had the pleasure (and pain) of changing both front and rear discs and pads I thought I'd write up a little 'How To' for those attempting the changeover themselves. Firstly I'll list the equipment and materials needed; EQUIPMENT: Impact and Torque Wrench, Ratchet, screwdriver...

    Hi Folks, I want to change the alternator on my 2006 9-3 2.0t (I believe a B20ZL engine). The current one is not charging properly (after testing on a couple of new batteries) - so the question I have, is there a stronger alternator that I can use rather than the standard one - for...

    After my most recent self repair job of changing the rear pads I took the top off the brake fluid reservoir and noticed the fluid looked a bit cloudy. So its got me wondering just how long it's been in there. I have no issue with the effectiveness of the brakes but I'm thinking that maybe a...

    I have a SAAB 9-5 Vector 2006 sedan (the first with the face lift). My AC control knobs are very want out and I was trying to take the 3 knobs from other units I have. Mine is not so easy to find as it has seat ventilation too. But I can't for my life find out how to remove the knobs. Did...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I changed all disks and pads yesterday, plus a fluid change. The job went well and I am happy with the result. One thing is bothering me though, the handbrake seems to come up much higher than before. I'm not 100% sure as I rarely drive the car as it is my wife's. It does come up a helluva way...

    So spoke with ECP who gave me the choice of a new thermostat and housing for £30ish notes or just the stat itself for £8, given my last motors haven't been that difficult to swap just the stat, I bought the stat alone. However, I can see the stat, I just can't figure out how to disengage both...

    Hello, I have an AUTO 05 reg 1.9 TiD Saab (150bhp). I have uploaded a video to You Tube for reference. In my opinion the gear box is changing slow, i.e. holding on to the gears too long, to make it change I take my foot off the gas completely and it changes. If I try and change manually + -...
