    Hi Playmates. Still cutting my teeth with my SAAB 9-3 Convertible, but I have a request or two..... Why is that stupid illuminated 'i' showing on the dash when nothing is wrong on the SID? Do we have access to a workshop manual download on this forum? Anyone have advice on speaker removal...

    Recently acquired a 2001 93 base model for my son (well, more for me right now as I am teaching him how to drive a manual!). My history with Saab goes back to late 1990's when I was a Sound Quality engineer for General Motors. I visited Saab in Trollhättan for a couple of days in 1999 to learn...

    Hi all, Changed the purge valve on my v6 today due to usual difficulty to start after refuel and a related fault code. All went well up until disconnecting the black connector from the old valve. Twisting and pulling ended up snapping it! I've held it in place with electrical tape at the...

    Hi everyone. My 2004 93 2.2tdi has developed an annoying problem. Whenever the mood takes upon starting the car it will run for a couple of seconds then cut out. It will do this a few times before refusing to start at all. After half an hr all will be fine. This could happen every couple of days...

    Hi On my 1993MY 9000CS, I've got a couple of small issues Firstly, the odometer has stopped working. I noticed it after zeroing it when filling the tank, but I don't think it was working before that. Is there a fix for this? Secondly, my central locking has taken on a life of its own...

    Hi all I'm looking at buying a 2007 9-3 2.8t aero saloon. Car looks good and I'm going back for another viewing on Saturday. The seller advised that the only issue he has with the car (and it only happens periodically) is that when you lock the car sometimes one of the rear doors doesn't lock...

    Hi, since replacing inlet manifold, clutch and dmf and a few other bits have still been getting a rough sounding engine until warm. Spoke to parkinson's diesel tech in newark who said it's likely to be a glow plug rather than injector and the car running rough with a cold cylinder until it...

    Hi everyone, I am soooo pleased with my new (to me) 2002 93 SE Automatic. I fixed the issue with the radio not picking up any stations by replacing the fuse for the power antenna which also got the trunk light working again. What I haven't figured out yet is if there is a problem with sport...
