    I have recently bought a 53 plate 2.0l 93 Aero. It still has standard bulbs all over and I fancied getting rid of the dull yellow look of the following bulbs for some LED's.. however they appear to be different sizes and I haven't found a thread or website with any conclusive answers. I'm...

    Hi guys and girls, after a brake away from saab I am now back in a familiar place. I have just brought a 9-5 Vector Sport 1.9tid Auto Estate, with a Hersch remap. Well happy. However I purchased the car knowing the heater blower dosnt work and that its usually the resistor that's faulty. However...

    I've got all the classic signs of turbo failure... blue smoke on start up, small amount of blue at tickover and lots of blue when you back off the accelerator, but none when you accelerate Well I think those are classic signs. There is oil on the outside of the throttle body and the metal pipe...

    Hi Guys! Basically, about a two weeks ago, my passenger side door mirror stopped powerfolding. Given the area where I live I thought that the mirror had been pushed back and was now broken. But it appears to have come to life again, although not in the way I hoped. Lately, because the...

  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I've been looking at getting new rims on my car soon and I have found a set I like Wheel Max.com and from the one website I've found on here it says the offset of a 1997 9000 is from 35 to 42 with a bore of 65.1 and the 108mm bolt pattern. The rims I like have a 108mm pattern, a bigger bore of...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    So, I always assumed that my 9-5 Aero (54 plate/MY05) had the 'AS2 + Navigation' option.....meaning it has the 6.5" Denso touchscreen unit, and 6-disc multichanger in the boot...and, so I thought, 7 speakers (no sign of any Harman Kardon livery !). However......... not really having paid much...

    As far as I can tell my car (1999 2.3t SE) had the earlier PCV patch in place. ie. The thin pipe with check valve was connected to a Bush added into the oil filler pipe (funnel really), and there is evidence of a check valve being hacked into one of the other PCV pipes. I've been installing...
  17. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    I have just had my second experience of a c900, and it is much better than the first. The saab specialist I have just started using runs c900s as courtesy cars. The first one I had was a G reg (MY89) 900 XS and at 126k miles seemed rather bad. This week's one is again G reg (MY89/90) 900i and...
