    Have just heard the very sad news of the death yesterday of Erik Carlsson, 'Mr SAAB'. A great rally driver and totally committed to SAAB all his adult life. A great loss of a real gentleman. RIP
  2. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    When i purchased this 99 9-3 there was a hardly noticeable lifter tick, only on cold startup. Now unfortunately the tick has turned into a loud tapping and sounds like it is coming from the head. I am aware of oil starvation issues with these motors which is why i think it has to be a stuck...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Picked up my 2003 3.0 TiD after an engine transplant two days ago. Have only had a chance to drive it for around 60 miles and, knock on wood, am very pleased with engine performance. It sounds and works better than the old one, which had gone 90K miles before I bought it four years ago and 160K...

    Please excuse the lack of technical terminology... but you know how when your RPM's are way higher then they should be for a gear your car won't even let you "hover" over it with the clutch in, it "grinds" if you attempt to? I drive a 2002 Saab 9-5 Aero with about 140k, and for the last 10...
  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi I have (or had until it died) a Jan 2006 9-3 TiD 150 Sportwagon @ 41k miles the water pump siezed and timing belt snapped I am not mechanically minded and as usual, after the event I now know that belt is supposed to be replaced @72k and I think that this pump siezure is a fault with this...

    Hi, I am new here, but my wife's SID has a lot of pixels not showing. How can I correct this? Thank you. Saab 9-3 2001 turbo
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I really have come to the end of my tether with this damn car! Actually I haven't. I love it but it can be a bit of a wallet drainer sometimes. Like now for its MOT (which it has just failed). I need a new front hub. I have had wheelbearing woes with it and the last one has also killed my hub...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I got very close to buying a 9-5 Vector Estate - probably one about 3 or 4 years old but having looked at Saabscene I confess I am horrified at the extent of the problems and component failures that you guys seem to experience! In short it has put me off and I would welcome your feedback as I...

  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My son posted on here about my Carly a few days ago about some niggly problems...now I have what I think is a big problem! Yesterday the TCS and ABS lights come on. Surprisingly it didnt affect the idle of the car and it ran fine....the brakes though went stiff as if it had lost all servo. I...
  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, this is my second post, and my first Saab (see the forecort for details). I just read nbr_uk's post "Sensonic Death!!!!...." and found it worrying. I just bought a Sensonic 900 S turbo the other day. when driving it back form the seller's house (private) a couple of times it wouldn't go...
  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Driving back from work today the ACS light came on and I couldn't change gear - pulled over and switched the engine off, left it a minute and tried to start the car again but it wouldn't start. There were no error codes and the ACS light didn't come on. Called the RAC and they came out - the guy...

    Bi Xenons are appearing as standard fit on more and more cars and an option at around £1200 on others (yes I know prices vary). And the life of these alternatives to halogen bulbs I am told is 'the life of the car'. So what's that? 10 years? 20 years? So what happens in 10 years time and your...
