  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    Being that any semi-definitive information regarding MY07 93 EHU swaps is hard to come by, at least for me it was, I want to share what I now know from my local shop: NOTE: This is for MY07 (2007) interior redesign and audio overhaul 93s BOTTOMLINE: IT IS 100% POSSIBLE TO SWAP EHUS THAT HAVE...

    Overview (apologies about the essay but I hope this will help someone not make the same mistakes I made) I bought a 2008 9-3 AERO TTiD a couple of weeks ago to replace my previous 9-3 which was written off in a nasty head-on collision. The car needed new pads and discs and the rear...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, having diagnosed the rear door lock mechanism as my problem that triggers the alarm (I understand the switch is built into the unit). Has anyone had experience in attempting to fix this. I'd rather not have to disassemble twice so might end up buying a replacement lock unit as I'm...

    When you buy a secondhand motor, you like to think you've just got a good deal. A "good deal" is obviously subjective, from person to person. But have you had any good or bad moments from secondhand dealers? Bought something then a month later it fell apart? Or ever got an absolute steal...

    Hello, Im a car design student looking for people who own or have owned Saabs in the past to answer a few questions if they can. My design project is based on extensive research where I am rebranding Saab from designing their product line up to their dealer experience. You can choose to answer...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    These are apparently reverse engineered to be better then the Saab manufactured stabilizer/Link rods which has a smaller ball joint and weaker plastic that supports the joint. ebay Item number is: 270946487052 if you want to check them out. According to Saab the sway link rods are a common fault...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    I've just joined but have read many articles on peoples experiences in upgrading the sound system. I would like to share my recent experience as it might help out. Firstly, i have the 7 speaker (pioneer) system with satnav. I changed the front 3.5" dash speakers with jbl ones, pretty simple...
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Guys, Have been looking at the options for tuning my TX, and whilst I've seen lots of comments on the usual suspects, I've not seen much in terms of comments on Angel Tuning. Does anyone have any experience of these guys..? I know they're well thought of on the Alfa Romeo forums. Although...

    Hi Guys, I have just bought a 9-3 Aero and obviously i had to do all of the usual phoning around and playing one against another.... you know how it goes?! I ended up getting a good quote from Aviva, but along the way i tried the Co-op insurance service. After all of the normal questions...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, My '04 Aero estate needs a new back box. On the Bay of Plenty Neo Brothers are advertising a Maptun exhaust - back box and intermediate pipe for what seems like very reasonable money (£298 plus P&P). Does anyone have any experience of this exhaust? The car is standard with no performance...

    Hi all recently, had my car serviced by these Saab specialists, near Royston Herts and to be honest i felt nothing but ripped off, £255 pound + vat = for a service i think that is a little steep, but more important to me they said my brake lines were extremely dangerous, heavily corroded and...

  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have a 1.9 tid (150) auto. Does anyone have any experience of remapping this vehicle? In particular I am interested to know how the remap might effect the automatic gearbox. Currently the automatic gear box on my vehicle will only allow the car to shift up from 3 to 4, 4 to 5 and 5 to 6 if...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Time for a stupid question. How does whatever constitutes a "rev. limiter" manifest itself on a 9-5 2.3 lpt auto? Back in the old days when everything was in black & white, my 850 Mini would bounce its valves when at the limit. Similarly a Citroen Visa GT with twin Webers. But in the 21st...
  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    bought pair of RHD wiper blades from Elkparts the other day and fitted them yesterday. Drivers side replacement - no problem. Strangely enough, the passenger side wiper is actually from a Saab 9-5 - no problem I thought maybe its the same for both car models. Now maybe its me, but the wiper...

    I had my fire extinguisher installed. I had my headlights covered. I even got my little blue triangle to show where my battery was. I made it through scrutineering with no problems and got my number. And then, just as I was at the front of the line and all ready to do my time trial...
  17. Saab Recommendations
    Just wondered if anyone has any recent experience with servicing in any of the above areas, or a recommendation of where to take my 9-3 which I think is pretty much due its 54k service - I live in High Wycombe. It's a company owned car and I think as such they prefer it to be dealt with by an...
  18. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Folks, I'm taking delivery of a 93 Vector Sport within the next few days, and I'm wondering what the standard audio is like for this model. I've been looking at the audio upgrades on Elkparts but I'm unsure of what I'll be starting with :) I've tried looking at the Saab site, but I can only...
