  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have a Saab '04 93 Linear, and today when I was leaving my house to get into it, I shut the front door of my house against my key fob. It wasn't terribly hard of a slam, but enough to "ding" the key fob near the front, where the small groove is. When I inserted it into the ignition, it...

    Hello all I have an absolutely mint saab 9-5 tid Unfortunately two weeks ago it was parked overnight and ended up in about 2ft of water. I don't think it was sat for long in the water, the seats are bone dry, door pockets dry, but carpets and boot floor are saturated. I returned to the car...

  7. Wash and Brush Up
    Hi, have got a 95 on a 57 plate it has cream leather seats with small black inlays. Recently on the drivers seat the black inlay has started to crack so I took it to a car upholsterer for a repair. Unfortunately the inlays are made of PVC and not leather so can't be repaired. I've been to...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi everyone! First time poster. Thanks in advance for your help. I recently bought an '01 9-3 convertible and love it. Then yesterday I got "SOFT TOP FAILURE" on my display and the top ceased to go down. I checked the fluid and it was very low so I refilled it with the absurdly expensive Saab...

    Hi All Just commenced year 2 of ownership of my 93 Sportswagon 2.8T Aero and had a few issues (though admittedly not the car's fault), but I still love the car. I travelled out to France on Friday evening and on the way to Folkstone I hit a pothole. I examined the tyre and pressure before...

  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    today i hit a patch of black ice in a parking lot going about 10kph and hit a concrete retainer. my 2003 9-3 linear sustained minimal damage as you can see in the attached image: but never the less the bumper needs to be replaced. I'm assuming that this is something I could do on my own, minus...

    Some one has hit my N/S mirror and the glass and a circular bracket seem to have come away from the housing (I can post a picture later when i get home from work) nothing appears to be broken but cant get it to clip back in. Does anyone have diagrams/instruction on how to get this to clip back in ?
  15. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    I got a tyre fitted to a loose wheel on new years eve (unplanned!) However it was only later that I noticed the mess that the tyre monkey had made of the wheel - each spoke is scratched quite deeply as below: Before I confront the feckless <expletives deleted> - anyone got any idea how much...
  16. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Started a new thread but this really follows on from my misfire problem which turned out to be due to a loss of compression rather than ignition based. Just got the head off and discovered the exhaust valve has got a small chunk missing off the seat area. My next thought was 'where'd it go?'...

    Hi, On my 9-3 SW the ski hatch in the rear seat, or load-through hatch as it is called in the manual, does not open easily. Using the handle at the front does not pull down the latch enough to release it, and I end up having to use a screwdriver from the rear to force the latch down. My guess...

    Following my run-in with my local hoodie (posted before), I've got the car back from the bodyshop but I've just noticed they've damaged the hazard switch - goodness knows how - and I've no way of proving it. Basically the switch appears to be rubber covered and the rubber has been chipped in two...

    Had a clogged screen in my sump, by the time I realized and fixed it was too late I lost an engine. Does that lack of oil flow also effect the turbo can I expect the turbo to also be bad
