    I've been looking for a 93 TTID for a while and have found a couple In Scotland but am a bit worried about corrosion. Have seen a few cars in the past from up north with way to much corrosion on them for the age. What's your experience of that? Any particular place to look on the later 93s? Thanks

    Hello, I have noticed a small amount of rust on my rear wheel arch on my 2008 ttid aero. The book says they have a 10 year corrosion warrenty. Can that still be claimed upon now there are no real main dealers ? Thanks

    (I have tried the search facility without any luck) My newly aquired 'N' plate 900 convertible is in good condition apart from corrosion around the door check strap on the A post. Is this a known issue and is there a known repair/cost etc?

    Hi All I am hoping someone can give me some advice here. I have recently bought a one owner 2006 9-3 vector convertible. While cleaning it at the weekend I have noticed that on the roof tonneau cover on the drivers side has what I can only describe as bubbling along the edge. It is not very...

    The mirror mounting posts on my 2003 9-3 aero have started to corrode and the paint/powder coating has started to come away. What is the best option for getting some new ones, I have heard it is cheaper to buy the full assembly rather than just the parts.

    The alloys on my 06 1.9TiD Vector Sport SW are corroding badly around the edges of spokes and are not yet 4 years old. Is this commonplace? Do Saab entertain claims for this?

    Hi all. This is my forray into the classic 9-3 forum as I am looking at a 2000 MY 9-3 to replace my high miles 9-5. Having checked out the usual weak spots (bulkhead, aircon compressor, sludging) and found them all OK the only thing left is front suspension strut corrosion. I have spotted...

    another problem that i need some advice on. The fabric on my soft top is in excellent condition and only about 5yrs old. Fully renovated it with the Autoglym hood restorer and it came up great. One (major!) problem. The front aluminium bow section of the roof (bit that attaches to the top of...

    Hey everyone, Does anyone know what metal the grab bar across the very front of the roof is made of? Its the one just inside that you have to pull down on to lock the roof down. Mines developed some white flakey corrosion and when i retract the roof i get an almost pleasent snowing effect...

    just noticed the edges of the spokes on my vector 17" alloys are starting to corrode slightly, not bad enough to get refurbed yet but was wondering if it was normal for wheels relatively new to do this, also, whats best to help stop them getting worse?

    My 9000 Anni went into the garage on Friday, and they had it in all day while I went to London on business. They called me and said that I needed new discs and pads on the rear. I have taken the car back as I am capable of doing the brakes myself. They told me that the car failed the MOT on...

    Hi I just noticed today that the stems on my mirrors look as though they are corroding under the paint at the door end. This is causing discolouration on the door paintwork. Has anyone else come across this? 07 plate 1.9 TiD nearing two years in March.

    LOOK OUT FOR CORROSION STARTING TO APPEAR AROUND THE BLACK SUPPORT OF THE THE DOOR MIRROR. THIS STARTS WITH SMALL BUBBLES OF CORROSION AND TAKES TIME TO APPEAR BUT STARTS WITHIN THE WARRANTY PERIOD BUT CAN BE EASILY MISSED AS MINE WAS, IT IS NOT COVERED BY THE 6 YEAR ANTI CORROSION WARRANTY, AND...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi guys - I have a 04 MY 9-5 Aero. The valve cover on top of the cylindr head, turbo inlet pipe and engine mount were all very badly corroded. It is as if SAAB, as one of their cheapo mods for the 04 MY, decided to not paint or protect these parts. Result is that after a certain time, they...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just been cleaning my '04 model 9/5 and I noticed that the black aluminium trim piece which the drivers mirror bolts on to is quite badly corroded. Nearside isn't quite as bad but same thing is starting. Does anyone know if this is a common problem, is there a fix (other than replacement) and is...
  16. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I'm looking to buy a 98 9-3 vert. Several that I have seen seem to suffer from corrosion on the vertical black frame between the front and rear window. I feel it ought to be possible to do a reasonable repair. Perhaps by cleaning out the corrosion between the steel and the plastic (?) coating...

  18. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Bit disappointed on closer inspection to find the beginnings of rust on my 93. I know its nearly 6yrs old now but I have had and seen plenty of older Teutonic machinery that have had no signs. I thought the rust-proofing would be better really. I'm guessing the body is galvanised? The paint is...
  19. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi guys and gals In looking between my nearside rear wheel and arch I noticed with shock and horror that my rear box was falling to pieces with rust. The outer skin is peeling away although for some reason there is no signs of a leak. How long will the inner skin last? Has anyone replaced their...
