  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Folks, So I had some problems a few weeks back with steering. First I noticed some creaking sound when turning the steering wheel- sounded almost like a metal spring over tightening and releasing and it was coming from the steering column directly under dash ( or at least it sounded like it...

  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My steering column squeaks when I turn the wheel. High pitched and increasingly irritating. It might be psychosomatic but the steering also seems to be getting harder to turn (makes note to go and check the tyre pressures ;)). I'm guessing the column bearings are beginning to complain. The...

  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi All, I am in the process of getting a 1995 GM900 Convertible ready for registration here in Australia, and it just got knocked back on one thing which I am confused about. The said the steering wheel is loose on the shaft, as when you pull it sharply, it moves about 1/4 of a mm, if that. I...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, Another gripe on my 57 9-3 Vector Sport 150, if I accelerate hard with the steering turned to the left, I get a vibration induced rattling coming from the steering column area. It sounds like a metal plate (it has the metallic zing to it). Doesn't do it any other time except when...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello, Just noticed my steering getting a bit stiff occasionally even though my power steering fluid is ok. Hopefully not the PS pump but feels like the universal joint in the steering column is seizing. If I try to free it off and lube it up but it doesn't work, I just wondered if anyone knew...
  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Car was in for an MOT today and picked up a fail for leaking power steering fluid from on side of the column. Been advised I need a whole new column which costs a crazy amount as Saab don't just sell the seals only the whole thing!!! Is this true? Does anyone know anywhere that supplied...
  12. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    I have recently bought a 2004 9-5 Aero estate which is fine in most respects but I am puzzled by a sensation coming up the steering column which is a sort of "clunk" not as noise but a slight "shock". I have had Classic 900s and a 9-3 none of which did this but it may just be a front wheel drive...
  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, I've been running a 1999 9-3 S 2.0i (normally aspirated) for the past 18 months. It currently has 96k miles on the clock and is in very good condition. The last few months I've been experiencing a vibration through the steering column at speeds over 65 mph. I've had new tyres put on the...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    After replacing all the rubber on the front end (except rack), and still getting vibration a forum member (can't remember sorry) mentioned his loose nuts at the top of the struts under the bonnet. sure enough, this eliminated the horrid rattle... however i think that this rattle has caused...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    After my first post regarding a clunk through the steering whilst acclerating and braking can someone please explain what i need to grease on the column? Do i do this inside the car down by the pedals or is this done under the car? Any help really appreciated.... As for me thinking its a...
  16. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi My wife's 2.2 TID on an 03 plate has developed a clicking noise coming from the steering column. As far as I can tell it seems to be the bearing on the colum itself i.e maybe some play. Has anyone got a similar problem and managed to fix it? I don't think its dangerous, just irritating when...
  17. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I recently posted regarding electrical faults I've been having with my 04 9-3 2.2 TiD Linear. Out it into the dealer for a diagnostic chack and they stated the battery was weak but there maybe CIM faults too. I replaced the battery and no problems for a month then the problems returned. I've...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Patient in question is a 88 9000S whose ignition cylinder gave up the ghost (electrical connector on the back of the cylinder is inop). We have another entire steering column with bracket and ignition stuff and key and all that good stuff: Now how to put the working cylinder in the car? Can we...
  19. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    At my 4.5 year old 9-3's service yesterday, they discovered play in the steering column. On investigation, this turned out to be because the top shaft bearing had failed. Apparently this will cost over £900 to fix (the whole steering column needs to be replaced). Is this a reasonable failure on...
  20. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    My 1996 900SE Convertible just failed its MOT due to: "Steering column movement between the shaft and steering wheel [2.1.2b] DANGEROUS!" I haven't spoken to the tester, because I was away and my wife collected the car, and I'm a bit puzzled as to what he means. I first jumped to the...
