    Sorry if this has been covered a million times before but how common is the Bulkhead issue on the 93? Does it affect certain years or body styles more than others? Neil.
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi I'm picking up my 9-3 on monday, it has a new MOT but after reading the blogs i'm concerned about the fire wall cracks as mentioned. Is it easy to check yourself and would the MOT testers have checked for the splits, being a problem on R/H/D 9-3's. Will Saab pay for work if needed on an 07...
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi all, I am currently giving my mate's CSE a thorough going over, inside and out ready for sale. I can't beleive how well this thing goes! 147,000km, 2.3T auto really surprised me. More poke than my 9-5 lpt by a long way. Anyway, the grey leather seats have started to show those typical...

    My son has a 2002 Ford Focus 2.0 Zetec with 205/50 16 87V tyres. The front Falkens were wearing out and he asked my advice on replacements. I checked all the tyres. The rear tyres are Continental Premium Sport Contacts that are hardly worn at all but they have hairline cracks about one inch...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Like many other people who have posted on here, I have recently been experiencing knocking noises from the front suspension when cornering, turning and going over bumps. I got my local friendly MOT testing station (Kirkhams of Crawley who I highly recommend) to have a quick look, but they were...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello When washing the car I noticed some cracks in the paint where the rear 1/4 joins roof. I Know the history of the car and this area has never been painted. As I know there are some other 9-5's (both also dark colours)at the station I looked at these, and both had same cracks as mine. Is...
  10. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Right. The car went for some change of essential fluids and a complaint about some clicking noises I heard when turning. (I just renewed all the shocks etc in December). I get a call from the dealership, they've found a problem. There's a crack on the firewall doubler, it needs repairing. They...
  11. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    The top of the dash on my classic ragtop has a 10cm-long crack in it; I gather it's a common problem - caused by heat of the sun? Does anyone out there know of any substance which would be effective at filling it in, glueing it together which would look ok? I suspect an invisible repair would...
