    Hey everyone, I have a 2011 9-3 Aero Turbo4 XWD which just had the front control arms, 3 CV axels (cant find the back left one anywhere), and the front brake pads + disks replaced in the past 3 months. Now, I’ve had this clunking occurring before all the replacements and it still hasn’t gone...

    Can anyone help me when i go over speed humps (a pain in the ass to all of us and so environmentally unfriendly so dickhead cameron get rid of them if you want to help save the planet) a clunk comes from what seems like under the centre console not sure if its an engine mount or an exhaust...

    Hi, From cold, the car exhibits no problems, and shifts quite well. From Park to D or R and from R to D and vice versa there is no delay. However, once the car is warmed up after a half hour of driving or more, there is occasional slippage and clunks when changing gear. More worrying...

    Hi Folks, My 2002 9-3 Aero Convertible seems to have developed a clunking (on acceleration and braking) that comes from the offside rear of the car. My local Saab indy removed the rear shocker and couldnt find anything amiss but its still there and driving me crazy.. can anyone point me in the...

    Well this problem with my 95 2.3 SE MY01 has me stumped. A couple of months ago I noticed a rotational faint squeak under light braking from the front left wheel which got louder over the course of a few days. I had it checked, it was diagnosed as poor pads and disc, replaced the lot with cheap...

    I have a knocking/clunking noise while driving. Starts at about 30mph and increases as speed increases. In the past the inner cv joint gaitor has been split. I replaced this and found that the grease had had wet in and wasnt very greasy, also there was very slight play in each of the 3 lobes of...

    Hi All, my 2000 93 SE with automatic has a clunking sound when I begin to accelerate. It is clearly coming from the left front. It sounds a bit like a metal to metal issue. I have no clicking on tight radius turns going in either direction. It is worst when cold out and when I first...

    As a newbie to the site and realising that there have posts on this subject before I would like to put a slightly different slant on it. I have just brought a 93 tid sport estate. It is about 6 years old. The test drive was fine with no problems. About a day after picking it up it came up with...

    Ok so on my 95 9000 i have bad clunking from the front end on the drive side. I replaced the upper engine mounts cuz they were very bad. Replaced with poly. Checked the front end Ball joint is ok and trans mount looked good. and tie rods were good. But when checking the wheel for "play" by 9...

    Hello all. This is my first post. I guess I have not been so desperate before :). I am hoping someone has run into this before and can help. My car is a 2002 9-3 manual transmission turbo diesel. Problem is a noise coming from the drivetrain. I only experience it while slowing down while...

    I have recently purchased a 2005 Saab 93 Vector Sport (120) with 45K on the clock. On driving it back from the dealers I noticed that the car was creating a clunking/shudder sensation when changing gear (mostly up a gear and at high ish speeds). The car was also vearing to the left when...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I just was at 6500rpm in 1st gear because I was angry at someone trying to pass me and instantly regretted it. (even if the tranny only has 30,000 miles) I pulled into the driveway right after and shut the car off after about a minute and immediately noticed a strange soft clunk noise. At...

    How do, Have a problem with my 9-3 vector (2003) - seems to make a clunking noise from the passenger side wheel arch/footwell area when steering. This seems to occur at standstill or low speed while moving the steering wheel. My initial worries were CV joints - still happens at standstill...

    Hi I have a 9-3 TID on an 03 plate which has developed a grinding and clunking noise which has got worse over the last few months when I turn the steering full lock. The car passed the MoT and went in for a service about 2 months ago. Strangely the MoT guy said that these cars can suffer broken...

    Just signed up to this forum and already found some useful info to fix a couple of annoying problems. However, I have recently noticed that when I depress the brake pedal (9-5 auto estate), there is a loud clunking noise coming from near to the gear selector, which I guess is a relay. The wife...

    I've got a 2002 model 3.0 TiD Vector Estate with 120k which has developed a number of sounds which no doubt I need to have investigated and fixed, but wanted the view of members on possible sources of the troubles I'm experiencing. The car had an engine change at 88k to a 2004 version of the...
  20. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, Any advice on the odd noises coming from my 2.3 900s would be appreciated. When i turn the wheel at low speeds or when stationary an odd clunking noise comes from the direction of the passenger footwell/wheelarch, any thoughts what this might be? Also any uneven surface or speed bumps cause...
