  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Morning Does anyone know if there is a brand/model of windshield wipers compatible with the expensive Valeo's on my 2009 9-5? Presently they're Valeo Model #VM457. I'm in the US... Lexington, Massachusetts. Thank You, Frank Lexington, MA
  3. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi Always fancied owning a classic 900, as im in the process of selling my scooter i may have cash to actually buy one at last !! if i can find one that is. Im just wondering, people always go on about how expensive parts are for them- is that generally the case ? i always thought the...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just this second nursed my Dec 2003 95 Aero back from a weekend away in Western France, 1100 miles in all! The car developed a weird noise on the way there, which initially i attributed to bearing failure in the turbo. However some of the other symptoms are puzzling me and i hope someone maybe...
  5. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    Had the first puncture for a long time at the end of last week - screw in the tread in what I thought was a nice easily repairable position in the tread. I had already put my winter tyres/wheels on, so I've been running one of the summer wheels instead (for those in catch-up mode, I moved to...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, my wife's '04 9-3 Tid 150 has been misbehaving and showing a loss in power when pulling away and also at speed on hills. My local dealer hooked up the diagnostic kit and we've had the exhaust gas recirculation valve replaced (approx £176 all in) which seems to have solved the problem. So far...
  7. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    having bought a very well kept fully loaded black 2001 9-5 V6 estate, on the way back from the dodgy dealer the engine warning light appears, (thats the one with 3 zero's aftear it) ouch !! So I head down to the main dealer knowing I will get the worst case senario, which of course I did...
  8. Saab News
    Like many of you fellow Saab aficionados, I like driving Saabs, looking at Saabs, talking about Saabs and debating all things Saaby on the internet. One of the things that I like is the true kinship, the same automotive enthusiasm for a small but potent brand. A car that isn’t for the masses...
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I went to see an N reg 9000CS Aero tonight, mot'd Dec but no tax, it's got 150k and has had a new engine well a new block, he showed me receipts for this work (£2.6k). It drove, stopped, streered fine, although the front driver's wing right round the arch was a mass with bubbles of rust wanting...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    It's reasonably low mileage, doesn't state a Saab FSH, what makes it worth so much? £9k must be a typo surely. how much!!!!
  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I appreciate a fair amount of work goes into the map and you get a fair increase but 500 quid seems a lot of money for some different numbers in an eprom ? I can see how owners of new cars worth 20 grand can justify it but mines only worth 2 grand so its not really worth bothering, also, how is...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just visited my friendly Saab dealer (Brecks in York) for the gaskets and bits to complete the installation of a new turbo which is scheduled for Saturday (see previous post). The very helpful lad in the parts department printed off the job sheet for a turbo replacement, deducted th eturbo...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have noticed small patches of oil on the drive over the last couple of weeks and finally got the car on the ramp yesterday as it was a nice dry day. Having cleaned off all the dirt and old oil from underneath I left the car running. It is dripping engine oil from a small cut out where the bell...
  14. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Hi to all I was in at the local Saab dealer today viewing cars. One car in stock caught my eye, a 9000 2.3 Eco Anniversary in Scarabe Green / Beige Leather. See here: http://atsearch.autotrader.co.uk/WWW/car...rch_full=SEARCH Ok i'm first to say it, a very nice car indeed. Having owned 3...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My 9K is making a metallic noise when I start from cold. It seems to be coming from a line vertically in line with the crank pully and seems to get quieter within about a mile of driving away. I feel a visit to a garage coming up but with the sound reducing as the engine warms up I would have to...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I'v been watching a radio/cassette/cd player from a 9000 on ebay - the biddings gone up to £80 - for a 10 year old bit of equipment. Didn't realise how sought after they are..I could get a new one in Halfords for that !
