  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Yesterday I fitted new ARB bushes and droplinks to cure a little bit of rattling over bumps. I got OEM 2 piece bushes and the part numbers matched the old ones. Now to get the old ones out you need to remove drop links. Next drop the subframe a bit (including lowering the engine and gearbox...
  2. How to
    Guys, Recently wrote this as an answer to a question on another Saab site and thought it might be of interest. Allthough directed at the 9-3 it is also applicable to the Classic 9-5. No need to touch the subframe to do the sump. Unplug the lambda sensors, take off the turbo/exhaust manifold...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hey SaabScene, I bought a 2005 9-5 Aero awhile back and I've gradually been getting it ready for regular driving. I know earlier models suffered from oil sludge but this was fixed by 2004-2005. My question is, should I drop the sump to check for sludge even though my Saab has the improved PCV...

    this might be obvious but does changing the drop links have any affect on the tracking? I'm sure it wont but just making sure as I have just changed mine

  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Guys, Anyone done this ? I need to replace the bushes on both the upper and lower arms on my Aero estate. There is a bit of movement there and I suspect it is the cause of the excessive camber on the rear wheels. This causes premature wear on the inner edges of the tyres. I see sets of...

    Hey guys, its time i dropped the oil pan in my 2003 9-3. In my search to find detailed instructions on how to properly do this I found answers ranging from "its a pretty straight forward job; craw under there and remove the bolts." to instructions telling me to disassemble the entire engine from...

    Hi everyone, a few separate questions here: 1. I have blanked off the EGR and I'm getting the engine light come on, which I was expecting. I know that I can get rid of it by drilling a hole in the blanking plate, although I would prefer not to if there was maybe another way, like...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've recently been having problems with a sudden and severe drop in RPM while driving or when at a standstill. The car loses 500-1000 RPM without any warning, maybe once a day. This happens sometimes at idle with no issues, but the car has stalled a couple of times when at lights. It can also...

    Hi I'm just carrying out a sump drop on my hot aero. After removing the sump I have noticed that there is a metal pipe (breather)? crossing the crankcase. It's quite loose and can be pulled out quite easily is this normal or are new seals required I'd hate it to rattle loose. any info would be great

    Hello, I've a 2006 9-3 1.9 TiD Vector, 105k miles, with the factory "sports pack" suspension. Loud clunk/knock on both front sides - terrible over speed bumps - bad on normal potholes. I'm suspecting the drop links - probably in need of replacement in any case. A quick couple of questions, to...
