  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    An annoying rattle had manifested itself behind the dash of my 93. After a bit of rooting around I found the coolant reservoir was a bit loose in it's cradle. It's just a snap-fit, cushioned by a strip of foam. This foam had gone flat which meant that the plastic bottle itself was rattling...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    So I have just replaced the the front strut mounts/bearings, roll bar bushes and drop links and still getting a slight rattle from the passenger side front :mad:. At least the groaning from the springs has been cured when turning full lock when stationary so that's an improvement at least. I...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi. Just letting you know my findings. I had a strange noise whenever I reversed off my drive on full lock and it dropped down the very slight curb. Firstly updated my droplinks the Myle uprated ones and the noise was still there! I then decided to bite the bullet and change the top mount...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Guys, My 93 aero, 09 plate 108000 miles which was misfiring from cold. I wasn't noticeably losing coolant. I've put the K seal in it now and it's 80% better. It's been in a week and I'm impressed with the results. Do you think I should put another carton in it? Also, anyone got any idea how...

    Saab 9-3 vector sport 56 reg, rear view mirror (auto-dimming) shakes/vibrates when traveliing on speeds of over 50 mph..... Is there a screw or similiar that tightens it or any trick to stop it doing it......
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Just to let everyone know... ACC fan would blow intermitently. Main dealer and posts on here suggested that usual signs of fan speed controller failure was for the fan to blow full and hot - sometimes requiring the fuse to be pulled in order to stop. Mine just did not do that so I suspected bad...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    The fuel consumption has been getting higher over the past few weeks. Running at around 18 mpg on the trip to the office and back - bit of M1, North Circular, back streets of Ealing and Acton. No codes. Changed the two lambda sensors and first impressions are good. Today the consumption on...
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I've just upgraded forums from the 9-3 classic to this one by recently trading up from a 2000 model 9-3 185 BHP up to an Aero Sportwagon with the V6 turbo. I loved my old 93 and the turbo engine (my first turbo car), but missed the low down torque and sound of the Calibra V6 that I owned...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    If anyone has an incredibly annoying rattle (worse than all the others!) which appears to be coming from below the SID, and sometimes sounds as if it is coming from above the roof lining as the Saab dealer thought, then check out the coolant expansion (top up) bottle under the bonnet. After a...
  10. Saabscene: Performance
    Some of you will know I've had real grief with my BB turbo hitting silly boost levels (2 bar quite easily!) as it spins up too quickly for the software to react and contain it. I've been searching for a solution for a while now (slugging the software didn't help), and a while back I tried using...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Poking round the engine bay...could hear a louder intake noise-eventually found that the vacuum from dump valve to 3 way adapter had a small tear in it. Idle cured.Yes!Now I just need a new turbo... Electrical update. Noticed today that when first starting the car it shows 12v on display(backed...
