    Hi guys I'm currently on the look out for a good 2.8 v6 Conv. I've found a few, one of particular interest. I'm quite familiar with the 2.0 Aeros, but not the 2.8 v6. The one i really like is a late 2007, early 2008. With sub 40k. Looks to have had 4ish owners. Its not cheap, but in the ball...
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi All, Just inherited a W-Reg 2.0 SE Auto Cab HOT, and am going over the little things that seem to be wrong with it. Its got the usual sticky roof, and the interior smells of fuel when you sit with the engine running and the AC on, so i'm assuming there is a split vacuum hose somewhere - also...

    Gents Anyone got a wiring diagram for 01 93 convertible? My shifter will not leave park, even when the poking the bypass button. Tail lights function, but it really feels like the protection is not releasing. Any ideas would be highly appreciated. Terry

    Just a quickie as i cannot find a definitive answer. I believe the bumpers are the same for saloon, cab and est on 2003-2008 (04+ cab) will the rear bumper from a saloon fit the cab - including the skirt bit that attaches to the bottom? TIA Paul

    And on to my next challenge. I have severe condensation in car which I had put down to convertible but noted that I have lots of water in carpet ( hidden under all weather mat). I can see it's coming through the plastic cover under the glove compartment. Tried to get it off but can't..seems to...
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I've noticed that my car has developed a small steering shimmy when driven at low speeds (a bit like the shake you get with unbalanced front wheels but much more gentle.) I initially put it down to road surface but it occurs exactly the same on all road surfaces and disappears once you get above...

    I've had this car since August and love it to bits except for one thing and that's the notchy gearchange which is driving me nuts. There's no real play in the gear lever but it just doesn't seem to want to change smoothly and quickly which make shall we say vigorous driving somewhat tiresome. It...

    The drivers door and rear windows on my 2004 2.0T Aero Conv squeak when they are raised and lowered. It's definitely coming from the contact between the glass and the rubbers so I'm guessing a touch of lubricant on the rubber is required. What would you suggest using? Graphite powder/talc/some...

    Hi, car runs ok and has good power. Question is there is a vibration and slight rattle when idling. Would tuning help this and get it quieter and smoother?

    I just bought a 2000 (X Reg) 9-3 convertible ( see pics in gallery) and the glass lens of the near side front headlight has a big stone chip with a hole just big enough to let in water. I'm not sure if just the glass can be replaced or whether it's a complete unit? Also does anyone know where I...

    With all the people who have had problems with their Saabs and soft tops, I have been waiting for this to happen and now it has!!! >:( Went to put the top down the other day and it went up about 3 inches and stopped - looked at the driveway right in front of the rear drivers side wheel well and...

    Bought myself a 2000 convertible a week or so ago and apart from the usual non functioning SID I have an issue with the cabin blowers. Now, the display on my aircon unit is buggered but I'm not too worried about that, I can select all the various settings but nothing is coming out of the...

    My 2002 9-3 conv runs fine until I stop, let it sit for approx 10-30 minutes (while at working,at store) then when trying to start again it will turn over but will not start. Sounds like its flooded and local mechanic says its getting fuel but will not catch.If I wait another 30+ minutes and try...
