  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    It seems to be when you go over a bump or small pot hole. I'm getting a creaking metallic sound!!! I've replaced lower suspension arms and rubber bushes, also track rod ends. The steering seems fine now and goes in a Straight line. The noise was there before I carried out this work, so I now...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Entry level 1.8i owner here :) but keen DIYer and enthusiast for the marque (even a base level car is superior to a lot of comparable cars) Anyway, the MOTis approaching early next month - I've started to hear a creaking coming from the front nearside corner, only audible at low speeds, but...

    My 9-5 literally eats bushings and other parts in the front suspension. Over the last couple of years I've replaced the bushings in the control arm, the drop links, bushings on the sway bar, the outer steering joints, and yesterday I replaced the shock absorbers and the shock top mounts...

    I've searched around and it looks like this is a common thing, and here is exactly what mine is doing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYQVG7mS1Pk only on the fronts from what I can tell. In that link they mention: anyone know where that thrust bearing goes? Is it at the top of the...
  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My whole drivers-side dash area gets occasional bouts of the creaks. By this I mean that a roughish road surface (or occasional bumps) is clearly making the plastic dash casing rub against a mounting somewhere, creating quite a loud and repetitive creak/squeak. Pushing hard against the lower...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello all, sorry for yet another ignorant question, but my back doors have begun to creak on opening and closing... can someone recommend the right kind of lubricant to use and where to put it? Thanks!

    Evening chaps, My 9k aero has started to have a fairly loud creaking noise when turning the wheel at low speed or standing still, i can hear it inside the car, but with a window open its really loud (and embarrasing)! Its not the pump, sounds like a dry bush, any pointers? Thanks, Daz.
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, I have the worlds worst creaky drivers seat. Through every corner the seat creaks and groans (I am not THAT large). Has anyone had the same problem and managed to fix it. I am sure I read somewhere that there is a saab 'kit' to fix the creaks but now cannot find that information. Any...
  9. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Well the bulkhead's OK - so far - but the driver's door (or wing?) creaks when opened fully againt the check strap. Seems to be coming from the check strap/inner wing area. Sprayed lube there but not got it yet. Not a big deal I know, but it would be nice to stop it, anyone any exp of this...

    Hi My clutch pedal has started to squeak & creak a little when used. I am assuming it is just going to be a case of a drop of oil to sort out a dry hinge/joint/thingy but how difficult is it to get to as the pedal stalk dissapears up behind the lower dash panels and after doing in my back in...
  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Always have this noise like something is breaking around the front underbody of my car, more pronounced on very cold mornings, has anyone got any ideas what this might be. Thanks
  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi chaps, My '99 LPT makes a horrendous creak from the suspension on cold mornings. The colder the air temp the worse the creak - a raised manhole is enough to obtain pained grimaces from pedestrians! After a couple of miles when the car warms up it goes away. The car drives well when warm...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Noticed that the rear suspension has started creaking on the drivers side. No doubt the salty roads have taken their toll and I guess it's time to investigate the condition of the bushes and springs. I guess it's best to do the Springs and other poly bushes now. I want to try and retain the...

    My car has the walnut dash and walnut gear lever trim that was originally dealer fitted. Since owning the car, the problem I have noticed with the walnut gear lever panel is that in the summer, this panel creaks and squeaks really loudly and is VERY anoying. The problem is especially noticable...

  17. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Nearing completion of a journey last night in appaling weather conditions rain, floods etc, I stopped briefly to refuel. On resuming, I found the steering had become 'heavyish' & noticed some strange sounds coming from the steering column. Checked p/s belt & found all to be well. Today the...
