  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    So basically I've had a few Saab woes in the last month. It all started when i was offered a nice Aero at decent money from a friend. I put my 9-5 up for sale the next day and was hoping to get the Aero before xmas. The day after i put the 9-5 up for sale the turbo blew in what we think was t...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    tried to change the sidelights to LED ones today on my '07 model - the one where the sidelight bulbs are stuck on the end of long black plastic handles. Got the first one out, put a new LED bulb on the end of the handle thingy, and poked it back in the hole at the back of the headlight. Just...
  5. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    I only had one key for my 1992 c900 and this morning my wife managed to snap it off without noticing (!!) - presumably in the driver's door lock when she locked the car. So now that I have a locked car that I can no longer use what is the correct procedure? (Apart from telling me that I should...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Some kid with 4 passengers crashed into my '99 2.3 LPT SE estate. It definitely wasn't my fault as I was coming up a steep hill with around a 100m long line of parked cars on the left and no space for 2 cars to pass (evidently!). I was one car from the end and he simply couldn't be bothered to...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I'm feeling picked on After my trip to europe went the way of the pear (well more a trio of turbos) then a simple UK journey seems impossible for my Saab. I normally use the car for pretty short runs (15mile commute), but it seems that whenver I plan for a longer drive then it says no. I...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    2002 MY 9-5 2.0 LPT. 40k including an oil change 5000miles after last service and 3 weeks before trip, also new head gasket just before trip on advice of the garage. Got 300km into germany when the turbo gave up. 3.5 hour wait on the autobahn for the ADAC, delay partly due to the fact that...

  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Title just about says it all really... I've been changing the brake/clutch fluid in my 93 CS. I undid the clutch bleed nipple, but there was very little coming out of the top and a lot out of the bottom. So I remove the entire thing to clean it out and on trying to refit it, drop it in to the...

  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    What started off as a small oil leak has become a water(oil)fall. Just after replacing the washers on the turbo oil line, we cranked it up and saw that it was *STILL* leaking! While wondering how this was possible, I noticed there was a leak on the left hand rear of the block, opposite side...
