  1. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello everyone, I’m carrying out a few repairs to my Saab 93 (1998) convertible and would appreciate some advice on a couple of things. Firstly, the bar between the front and back windows. On the outside the rubber isn’t stuck down at the bottom where the bar meets the top of the door and widens...

    My rear exterior door handle is not connected so it only opens from the inside. I got the part I need from the junk yard but I'm not sure how it connects? Here is a picture of the door handle I need to know where the bar with the red tip connects to? Thank you.
  4. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    I've just added to my 900 fleet with a 900 4 door from 85. It is solid and obviously well cared for but in need of some light tlc. I would like to source some exterior trim parts including door rubbing strips and wheel arch covers. If anyone knows a contact or has some please let me know as I'm...

    I own a 1999 93 SE convertable and the exterior trim is fading to grey. I've used all types of dressings including Black Wow which lasts the longest but is by far not a permanent solution. So I thought I might dye the trim or paint it. The problem is which procedure is best and should I take the...

  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Since buying the car a year ago, gradual deterioratiuon of these parts. After a few months, following the weekly wash, I applied Back-to Black on these three parts. This lasted for two cleans, and it has been back to the horrid grey appearance since. I can honestly liken the look to the front &...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Well not actually on the door but the piece on the rear wheel arch that is in line with the trim on the lower part of the doors. There's rust under the trim on the wheel arch, so how is the trim removed please?

    Hi, not sure if anyone can help or if it's a dealership job...some kind person decided to try and break into my car by popping out the rear door quarter window, as a result the black trim between the rear door windows is now bent out, looks like they used a screwdriver-luckily they couldn't get...

  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I am trying to find a suitable towbar to fit to my 1996 V6 Griffin saloon. Found one company who can supply everything I need but they are asking if the Griffin rear bumper is any different from the standard bumper? I have no idea, we do have another 9000 but that's a hatchback so that's...
  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Driving to work this morning, motorway, big gust of wind pulled off the bit of trim from the front windscreen on the driver's side :-( It's had a tendency to come off, but I've usually managed to buzz the window down and grab it before it totally comes off - not this morning though! So: 1) Any...

    I just recently bought my first Saab, although I've been a fan for years. However, I'm a little stumped with some things. For starters, I know about daytime running lights, but for whatever reason my taillights, parking lights, and headlights are always on. I can turn the dial to 11, 12, or 1...
  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I posted on this a couple of months ago. The marks are still there - they're more or less symmetrical,so are presumably something to do with the hood folding away. I took the car to Beechdale (or is it Beechwood these days??) and their response was that the hood had 'obviously been put down when...

    A month ago I took delivery of a 93 Aero Convertible (05 model), I have had a couple minor issues such as a misaligned hood and a rattle here and there. The most worrying problem is an intermittent failure of both the instrument panel and the exterior lights, the dials on the instrument panel...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Help!!!!!!! As some of you may be aware, I've tasked myself with fixing some slight rust on my drivers door that was unfortunate enough to have been repaired fairly poorly by a non approved body shop a year or so before I bought the car. Anyway, as it is now nice and sunny, I thought today...

    Hi Saabists I have a 1999 93 Viggen Coupe (that I've had for 3 weeks) The wind/rain deflector strip that is attached to the vertcal pillar of the front windscene has disappeared after a fast (140mph+)drive across France. My dealer is arguing that this is not a warranty item. Anybody else had...
