  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I didn't want to just change the front main if it's possible I have another source of leaking. Appears to be motor oil. Thought it was an axle seal but it's not. That bearing is sealed and the axle extension tube is dry apparently. Is there a common timing cover failure or oring that could...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, Much louder and noticeable when car is full but one (or both) of my rear wheel bearings sound like they are on their way out. Can't be sure of it being the issue yet, all the tell tale signs, mostly the noise. A teeny wheel vibration but when on my own in the car it's only the noise...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've noticed reference in the other place (TSN) to common problems with 9-5 engine mounts needing to be replaced every so often. Now, I'm new to the 9-5 (in my case, a 2002 ARC Estate, 2.3T, 162000 miles) but I can say that I was surprised by the amount of harshness and vibration coming through...

    Hello. I just found a 99' Saab 9-3 SE with manual trans and I believe the "HOT" setup here in the US for $950. It's in remarkable condition, 99% rust free with perfect Dark Blue paint, despite having 162k miles. Normally, I wouldn't get a car with this many miles on the clock, but I can tell by...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Recently I bought a 9-3 1988cc Vector – first registered in the UK in 2002. I bought it in a hurry for work when my beloved 9-3 TiD blew the turbo. However the radio, heater fan, heated rear window and reversing sensors do not work. I have checked the fuses (about the limit of my electrical...

    Hello, can anyone tell me where the common rail pipe is on the 95 tdi 3.0 v6 engine? 53plate. I am specifically looking for the high pressure sensor. Thank you.
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, does anyone have a picture of the common rail sensor plug? I have recently bought a chip/remap box and need to connect it, I can't see anything due to the engine cover so would like to know how to remove this also. Any help would be much appreciated Thanks Forgot to add that the car I have...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I know they are the same epsilon platform and that the majority of the car is saab, but there are a lot of shared parts obviously. (as with the majority of cars these days) I have had a scout around the forum and there is a consensus that the same parts are a lot dearer for the saab variant...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    hi all. just wondering how many 9-5 est are knocking about with sunroof's, as i have'nt seen many?
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My '08 1.9td Conv has an intermiitant fault with the wing mirror switch. (Its a basic switch (ie. no dipping)). Sometimes when I switch to passenger side it 'ignores' me and moves the driver's side, which is annoying as now the driver's side needs re-adjusting! Is this a common fault (with the...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I recently purchased a 1990 9000 Turbo and it's leaking oil at an alarming rate. After driving, it will put a puddle of oil about 10cm in diameter on the driveway. The entire passenger side (belt side or right side if you're sitting in the car) of the motor is covered with oil and it's been...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    got a new 9000cse. Seems ive gotten the same common problems. 1.one headlight wiper functions on\off. Sometimes stop in a 12 clock position. 2. Seat heat on driverside not working. Seems previous owner had try to fix it, since at somepoint he had removed the facric. 3. The seatbelt warning...
  15. Saab News
    I thoroughly enjoyed Lance Cole’s essay on the specific smell that certain vintage cars (and in our case, specifically Saabs) have. Certainly the insight of a man that’s spent many an hour inside these machines and taking it all in. The entire mileiu is filed away for fond recall. There’s...
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all I was just wondering what peoples experience of common engine mount failing was? I seem to be getting a lot of movement in the gear stick on and off power, and a clonking through the steering during pick up of power which might be related to the engine slopping about. Is there one mount...
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I checked the forum and was unable to find a topic on this so i decided to make one. Next on my list of items to fix on my aero is the driver side window. apparently the Regulator as failed and I am supposed to spend $460 (usd) on a new one. Is this a common problem or even a reasonable price...
  18. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    'Saab’s best selling model so far is the first generation Saab 900, of which 908,810 were produced between 1978 and 1993. Number two in the list is the Saab 99 (588,643 units), third is the Saab 96 (547,221), fourth the Saab 9000 (503,087) and fifth the current Saab 9-5 series (392,048).' Above...

    It appears that it is not just Saab that GM don't understand, or can't relate to. Here's news of something closer to home for them.... Well we've heard this line before, but for Buick, substitute 'Saab': But this line perhaps bodes the least well for Saab: Perhaps GM doesn't stand for General...

    I was fortunate to have a look at a Lancia Thema ie turbo estate today, 60,000 miles and immaculate condition. We went looking over my 9000 and his car to see if we could spot any common parts and noticed the following list. Mirrors, inner wings, acc panel, bulb failure, boot trim/boot...
