    I'm going to be replacing the right side wheel bearing and was wondering what the driveshaft nut size is and what is the torque is on that nut. It's a '95 cs with 160 k miles. Thanks, Jeffrey

    So I need to replace the alternator in my 2006 aero and WIS call for removing the intermediate driveshaft to gain access to the alternator. Now I don't have the brass punch needed to "punch" the shaft out and I don't really know if I'll be able to put it back in (any tips on that?) so I'm...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello to all I've got a new problem. This evening, whilst gently reversing out of my driveway as it's done for years, when I went to move forward, absolutely nothing happened. At first I thought that it must have been either gearbox or clutch related, as there had been no noise between...

    Hi I have an 07 93Tid (150) estate on 100k Its had a rattling clutch bearing for the last 20k or so which has suddenly gone quite and now but there is a new, more concerning noise. When driving slowly in a high gear I hear a rattling from the gear box which is gets worse when you hit a bump...

    I'm doing both driveshaft boots on my '03 Aero manual's LHS, but..... I have the driveshaft on the bench. Regarding the inner boot, Mr. Haynes talks glibly of pulling the spider out of the outer, but oh no I can't.... The outboard end of the housing seems to be unhardened steel, and deforms...

    2003 9-5 2.2TiD 120K I have a wheel bearing noise which changes with road speed, been going on for a few months now, so perhaps time to investigate further. Have jacked up each front wheel separately and run the car in 5th gear, the noise only happens when the right wheel is off the ground...

    hi, i have had a drumming sound coming from my o/s front end for over a year now. Local dealer has checked it out twice and unsure of source but think it is probably the wheel bearing. Put it into another non saab garage today and they found no problem with wheel bearing and think it is a...

    Hi all, I'm going to rebuild my front suspension shortly and was under the impression that I would need a new top mount nut for the front damper assembly and front driveshaft/hub nut for re-assembly. Imagine my suprise when Orpington Saab told me they've never replaced them on a car before...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, (2004 manual 9-5 Aero) I have an annoying cluck which appears to be coming from the right front wheel. Actually it seems to be more or a metal rattle when going over a bad road/speedbump (plenty of those around here :( ) Anyways having looked into it I checked the drop links and they...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Has anyone been as unfortunate as me to have the driveshaft on their beloved saab 9-5 snap for no reason whatsoever. The driveshaft in question is the drivers side and was a genuine saab part fitted new 5 years ago. Thankfully the driveshaft sheared on the outside of the disc about 2 inch from...

    Hi, I have a 02 Saab 9-3T. Recently I've been having noises coming from the NS front wheel. Got the local garage to put it on the ramp for a quick look & found that there's a lot of play (0.5 - 1"?) in the driveshaft where it enters the gearbox (I see there's a housing that presumably holds a...

    Hi, I have recenlty had a new engine fitted to my 1999 SAAB 9-3 convertible following it developing a terminal problem. took for ever (4 weeks) and I never want to see the mechanic again. when I went for MOT I was told Both CV joints needed replacing and there was a fault on the passener side...

    Hi folks, I tried before with no joy surely someones changed the inner tripod bearing on the inner CV joint,my problem is the bearing is held on to the shaft with a circlip,not a snap ring, which you cant get to as the joint and bearing are held inside the outer joint with what looks like a...
  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    HI folks, Does anyone know if I can use a driveshaft and CV joint from a 9-5 manual gearbox and fit it to my auto gearbox,apparently the 9-5 2.0 and 2.3 boxes are the same apart from software differences but it would be great if someone has actually done it,thanks Bill
