    Are the pointy grills beside the headlights easy to remove? :)

    9-3 saab 1.9 Tid, 2006 How easy is it to replace the inner track rod i.e any special tools required... I felt steering was pulling slighty to the left after hitting a pot hole and had some slight knocking so jacked her up and had a look noticed the anti-roll bar drop link was damaged so i...

    My offside wing mirror packed in not that long ago so I had it tech II'ed when my car was last in the garage. Looks though the mirror is faulty (electrically). I think I've managed to track down a second hand mirror at a reasonable price. How easy would it be to swap the two over? Is it a...

    My clutch flexible hose burst tonight on my 2004 MY 2.3 Vector. I've searched the archives and can't find any threads relating to this so has anyone had this problem? As far as I can see, the hose is not replaceable on its own as it seems to be part of a one piece assembly that includes the...

    I havea wheelbearing going, its the drivers side rear and it doesn't spin as free as the left, and it's "clicky" when you spin the wheel. Looks like a total hub replacement, is this easy for an average mechanic like me or a garage job? Cheers, Coops

    I'm wondering how easy it is in practice to change the auto trans fluid on my 2004MY Aero estate. The Haynes manual mentions a "special tool" for the drain plug - is this anything special? And it also advises getting the whole of the car off the ground on ramps or whatever to do it - not easy on...

    my saab 9-3 Ttid had suffered from a few stone chips on the bonnet and front wings. i saw this product recommended in a national newspaper and decided to try it. they seem able to match any colour (ant it looked very good on my smoke beige car). the kit is very easy to use and doesnt involve...

    bought some fog lights off ebay & fitted them on sunday morning. One of the easiest things i've ever done. 3 screws hold the lamps in, plug in the cables that saab have very kindly already provided for me, put the switch in the dash & attach the cable block again already there & hey presto i...

    Hi I've judt taken delivery of the silver steering wheel radio controls and obviously need to fit them The car already has the buttons (in Black) but not the nice metal look ones, so I'm swaping them. Now how easy is it to fit them? Do I need to remove the steering wheel airbag cover? and if...

    Hi all, Just completed a very easy fix that took all of 10 minutes. The indicator return was not 'returning' on a left hand corner. Annoying, to say the least and lowered the driving experience somewhat. Quick removal with the car's torx driver. Slip off the steering wheel covers. Slide out...

    Just noticed that the temp gauge isn't working on my 93 V reg.. Just had it a few days, only noticed tonight. Drove around 6 miles dual carriageway and some slow streets and the needle was still all the way at the bottom. Doesn't seem to move regardless of fast / slow / idle etc etc.. However...

    i have read on here that its as easy as adding a the replacement stalk with the cruise control on to get the upgrade but have had difficulty finding a cheep place to get one and was wondering if the stalk of the 93 would work ? as the local scrappers got a few of them in but no 9-5's also i...

    What is possible to get a bit more out of the engine using genuine SAAB parts from later models? Anyone gone down this route at all?
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Been thinking about putting one on the Saab but not sure. How hard or easy is it? Are there common things that are gonna break or are gonna need replacing once i start messing about? Also what one to go for? Are ebay Bailey ones ok? Thanks,

    The cover on my gear knob seems loose and wobbles and rotates. Is there a fix for this? Thanks

    Folks I am in the process of replacing the power steering hose (pressure) on my 93 2.0 hot 1999. This would be due to what I beleive must be a relatively common occurance the rusting of the pipe hose near to the nearside clip retainer. I have received the hose part no 5061833 and have removed...
