  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Folks, Has anybody experienced a clunk sound after pulling away? My car does it i.e. about a second after pulling away when clutch is fully released, although it only does it the first time you pull away after starting ignition. Pulling away at junctions etc, produces no sound. However...
  3. New Saab 9-5 (2010 - on)
    Just re-visiting looking for anyone who is satisfactorily repaired the clunk in the rear end, have changed the fluid twice and it helps but doesn't get rid of it. Clunk started at 60 K, car has 80 now.

    Guys, Mrs P @ K's Cabrio has recently developed a 'clunk' when the brakes are applied. Coasting downhill with repeated applications only gives a clunk on the first application. If the throttle is applied then it will clunk again. I have taken of the front wheel and found that there is a...

    Evening all. Have a metallic sounding clunk when changing gear, can also make it clunk on and off the accelerator, not so loud but annoying now I know it is there. Took a look at the engine mounts, they are ok. Thought it may be gearbox back lash but decided against it. Just had a twist on the...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My 2001 9-5 Aero 90K miles OK I have an annoying clunk on the drivers side frontwhich only manifests when reversing slowly out of the driveway at about 3/4 full lock. Its quite a clunk and definately feels and sounds metal on metal and happens just the once when turning the wheel. The faster...
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Well a new problem (maybe) has emerged. I was backing into a parking spot today, and heard a clunk from my rear end. It could be described as a classic clunking sound, short and dull, not metallic or clangy sounding, if that makes sense. There were no bumps here, and I was going maybe 2mph. I...
  8. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi there, I've just bought a lovely 1993 900s cab. The only fault with it is single clunk when I brake hard, it doesn't happen under light braking. It sound as though it's coming from the near side (left) front around the passenger foot well. It doesn't happen when going over bumps in the road...

  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My poor Saab has hit a rough spot in recent months and I'm trying to get on top of it all. The most recent occurance is that something inside the back of the drivers seat (I'm LHD, but don't think that matters) is clearly loose and moves..you can hear and feel a clunk....Does anyone know what...
  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Considering buying a cheap 1994 900S 5 sp manual for my son to learn how to drive a manual car. Saw one yesterday, has a few cosmetic issues, sketchy service history(still has a blue oil filter- I suspect it has not had a filter change for a while!), no air-con(regas or new air compressor...
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I know its hard to diagnose over the web but here goes. When i brake ( not every time though) i hear a clunk from the front end. Its not as deep as a clunk but heavier than a tap. i feel this through the footwell and the pedals, and it sounds like its coming from the OSF area. had the car on...

  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I wonder if anyone can help, About half the times I start my Saab the engine (1.9 TiD 150) seems to clunk or bang into life rather than just start smoothly. I am not sure what this could be, is it normal or could something be loose. Thanks
  16. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    So I took the plunge and bought a Saab for my first car. And for the most part, I love it. It looks really good, drives well, and has been maintained well by the previous owner. I just hit 210,000kms today, and minimal things are wrong with the car (everything fm/am radio doesn't work, but...
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Guys, Found a new interesting way to break down last week. My Aero has always had a slight 'sloppyness' in the drive train. Just a small hesitation on change from drive to overrun and back. About a month ago this became a significant 'thump' when changing into reverse. Last week, when...

    Hello All, So I am loving my 2003 HOT Aero 250 but am getting quite depressed as Im getting a clunk when entering drive. Theres a bit of a delay then CLUNK and the car jerks into drive. Seems good whilst driving around and doesnt do it when going into reverse. Car has done 150000 miles but...
  19. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, I have just done an automatic oil change. It didn't seem that bad...black, but still fluid... Having said that, I am still getting an almighty CLUNK and jerk from the car moving into Drive. For example, If I move from P to N to R, no problems, smooth as a whistle. If I move from Drive to...
  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, (2004 manual 9-5 Aero) I have an annoying cluck which appears to be coming from the right front wheel. Actually it seems to be more or a metal rattle when going over a bad road/speedbump (plenty of those around here :( ) Anyways having looked into it I checked the drop links and they...
