  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Gear lever doesn't centralise anymore, now difficulty selecting 1st gear, have to go into 2nd gear first to get her in, any ideas?
  3. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    I have with great difficulty managed to free all four alloys on my 93 convertible. I plan to copper grease the wheel hubs before re-applying the wheels. Can anyone please tell me how thick a layer should be applied around the wheel hub collar ? Also, the Saab 93 hand book says to clean any rust...

    My 2003 9-5 Aero has just been serviced and had a New DI fitted and getting into the car this morning it was very reluctent to start only doing so when I gave it a boot of the throttle... could there be a connection or am I barking up the wrong tree?
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi - Need a bit more advice again please. My 95 Vector 2.0 2002 has started to become temperamental when trying to change gears. The car drives ok when in gear but I find when trying to engage reverse gear it seems kinda spongy and hard to engage, sometimes I need to go through other gears...

    I have a 2001 Saab 95 3.0 V6 TID. For the past couple of years it has proven difficult to start whenever the outside temperature iss 5 degC or less, and the car has been parked overnight. This problem has got even worse each year. If I try and start the car with no throttle it takes many...

  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    The other night I got back from work, and each time I tried to select reverse gear, it was like it didn't want to go in. It WOULD go in, but each time there was a kind of graunch and an accompanying strong vibration through the gear lever. It did this several times, even when I first put the...
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    There is another thread that touches on this prob a bit but as mine is not quite the same, i hope you don't mind a similar post. Just bought a Dec 93 2.0 LPT. 80% of time from hot or cold, I can't get reverse. If I select 1st or 2nd - and sometimes I have to have a couple of goes at that - I...

  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Recently the cars been losing speed really easily, that is, when in gear and coasting. If I drop the clutch the car coasts freely. Also, when trying to make sharp exits from exit roads (especially left hand turns) I'm having trouble keeping the car "composed", it's embarassing as other road...

  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've noticed recently that sometimes when changing from 5th to fourth gear in my manual 2.0LPT, it doesn't want to go in to fourth. I get round this by sliding the gearlever into third and straight back out into 4th while the clutch is down. Now this happens relatively rarely, but I was...
