  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All, I have been reading the forums here for years and just want to say Thanks to everyone for a lot of help so far. My car is a 2000 SAAB 9-5 Aero ... and I love it! So... I've been buying loads of replacement parts to get it looking like new again. The latest was 2 replacement indicator...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Parked my 04 93 2.2 TiD Arc on a slope last night with only 17 miles to empty showing on the SID (stupid I know but it was at the end of a 400 mile drive) and the car wouldn't start the next morning, I got some more fuel in and got it running (thank god as I'm typing this in France) but the...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I am having an intermittent problem with my parking sensors (2003 2.2TID estate). When I start the car they work fine but after a short journey I get a continuous tone when reversing. There is no SID error message, just the usual "park assist" message. This is what I have tried so far: I have...
  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    The car is a 2003 9-3 linear with the 2.0L B207 engine. I bought the car thinking it had a bad turbo , easy fix and I would be on my way. Wrong, I sent the turbo to a reputable shop in the states to be rebuilt, he went thru the turbo and said it was fine with the exception of a diaphragm He...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all. I'm feeling a bit stupid right now as I managed to catch a tree stump on the front bumper this afternoon as I reversed out of our drive (I chopped it down last weekend - doh !) The bumper was partially ripped off on the offside and is cracked in a couple of places around the fog light...
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    old style mechanics? Went to mine with a slight blow in the exhaust. Straight onto the lift only to find that the flange in the coupling between the middle section and the back box had rusted away completely. Apparently these cars are pretty well sound-proofed! No mention of a new exhaust...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi there, I recently bought a used 1998 S-reg Saab 9-5 2.0l (manual, petrol 2000cc) I haven't been able to drive it off the the forecourt yet as no insurer can find it from the registration plate. On some sites it comes up, but lists it with a 1985 cc engine. They can't seem to match the engine...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Stupidly I let the DTE go down to 5 miles, but it is only a 2 min drive to the petrol station, so I thought I have plenty of diesel left to get me there, so off I go to the petrol station get to the top of the hill and it cuts out, I didnt feel difference in the car before, it just cut out and...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi Guys. Oh boy have I had fun on Towbars. My old lpt had original Saab detachable from new so never cost me anything as I was second owner. I now have this lovely 03 Aero Estate and it's been a nightmare getting a detachable for any reasonable money. It appears there are only 2 people who...
  11. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)

  13. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Got me thinking on the journey to work tonight - I saw three Ford Scorpio's on one journey. Hadn't seen one of those for a long time, then 3 within an hour or so. There are a lot of cars that were very common not that long ago, and now seem to be few about. I saw a Citroen BX the other day too...
  14. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Travelling up to Brooklands on Saturday we decided to take a leisurely drive, so set the cars Cruise to 57mph. Just before Swindon we sat behind a milk lorry (thank you Dairy Crest) and used the slipstream until we got off at Junction 10 of the M25, as did the lorry. Having to stop in traffic...
  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    *This is a grumble, only read on if you like to listen to grumblings* Let's face it, for most people, £500+ is a tad extreme for something that cannot be resold or reused after use in any format; be it chip tuning, computer software etc. This is why, I cannot see how the production costs of...

    I've just learnt how to record my LPs (these are black vinyl round things with grooves on either side for the younger people amongst you) on my iMac iTunes thing on to CD, but I'm not getting a playback on the various music devices around the house. The disc plays back on the Mac. Is it a disc...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    The owners manual states that the door mirrors adjust along with the seats when memory seats are fitted to the 2004 model Aero. Mine don't, and I wondered whether anyone else had the problem. They adjust perfectly well using the controls on the door, so the mechanism works fine.
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Strange phenomenon on my '96 Aero: When I bring the car up to 190 km/h or 200 km/h, the CEL will come on steadily, and will stay on until I shut down the engine. After a while (or even overnight), when I start the car again, the CEL will again initially be on, but will disappear after a couple...
  19. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, I have a 2001 9-3 2.0t, recently I have noticed that when changing gears or depressing the clutch and coasting when at speed, the revs do not seem to want to drop to idle (they drop in the end but take ages). Not sure if this is a new thing or whether it has been doing it for a while...
  20. Saab News
    I've been trolling through the listings on Ebay tonight. I'm not looking, just browsing. There's a couple of classic 900 convertibles on there, both of which are very interesting individually and especially when you compare them. First, there's this red one: <blockquote></blockquote> It...
