  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi guys! Have an 05 manual 93 aero, when she's cold 1st to 2nd (unless I'm really slow and deliberate) crunches, not so it won't go into gear but as if Ive only got the clutch half engaged (clutch is always pressed to the floor) down shifting 3rd to 2nd and 2nd to 1st is absolutely fine. Any...
  2. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Anyone have success replacing the 3rd gear syncro in one of our cars? My coupe has an annoying crunch if shifted into 3rd too rapidly. I've got the transmission out for the clutch, I'm thinking of replacing the syncro ring since I've already done most of the work to get there. I know it's a...

    Hi All, Not sure if this is normal on a saab but my MY01 Aero manual seems to really crunch when I select reverse gear, I have had 900-16S and 9000 Aero's and remember them doing this also. Is this correct? on the 9000 Aero I seem to remember having to rev the engine a little and then it would...

    Hi guys - Just when I don't need it, the 9-3 (B205L Turbo) has developed a hideous 2nd gear crunch. So much so, I cannot engage the aforementioned gear without a nasty grind (done repeatedly on the way to and from work), all others gears are fine - Which as I'm sure you can appreciate, makes...

  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello - thoughts, views, commiserations appreciated on my current predicament... :crazy: Much loved 95SE 1998 20LPT (all the bits on it) 130K. 12 months MOT & TAX :) Now regular plumes of blue/grey smoke after even a gentle flooring. :( The question is do I spend (£1000?) on a new turbo...
  7. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    What do you think? On the way home from work my wife in her pug 306 was the front car in a 3 chain kiss chase. You know the routine, she stops the guy behind stops the last car uses the rest as cue balls Now here is the point; on the face of it all the car has is a small dent (the paint is't...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    '91 2.3T Manual.. Like the title says, when stationary, if I engage reverse I get a "crunch" and a bit of a jolt in the drivetrain/car. I don't have to let the clutch back in for it to happen. It doesn't happen selecting any other gear while stationary. I think if I go out to neutral and...
