    It doesn't seem to matter where I buy my replacement badges from ...... The red griffin always seems to fade to this "Girly Orange" ....... Has anyone got any words to the wise here that don't involve me being surgically re-plumbed ?

    MY06 - xenon lights do not appear to be as bright as they were - lenses are clean - do these lights fade after time?

    Hi All. Been getting some help on an minor issue on my 1991 9000CS which I bought as an MOT failure for £135. Failed on 4 things and did three of them in an hour. The slightly longer one to solve was the faded headlamps. I am posting this remedy as I keeps seeing the same issue being raised...

    Hi All, I've noticed today that the paint appears to be wearing away from my parking sensors on my 2007 9-3. I can see silver starting to appear beneath the paint. They are the standard black parking sensors. Has anyone got any advice on how I can make them black again? I've no idea why this...

    Hi I have a SAAB 95 Estate 2.0 (2000) with 115k on the clock. It's starting to show it's age with the alloys now leaking and and the odd bits and bobs starting to go wrong (starter motor, battery, timing switch). THe brakes are doing something strange now though. When you come to a stop, it...

    Noticed on my way home this evening that the display on my SID unit has varying brightness while driving along, fluctuating from very bright to almost unreadably dull. At first I thought it was just me but after driving along staring at it for a while it definitely was changing. Anyone have any...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Has anyone come across the following before? Over the last 1-2 months, the rear offside light cluster on my '96 Anni has steadily dimmed. This affects all lights - brake, tail, indicator - to the point where there's not much light showing anymore. All other light systems (incl. the fronts) are...

    Has anyone's steering wheel buttons started to fade? After 29,000 miles - I am not sure that they should do. Never had this before? - you know the white printing on them? Surely this should last out to the end of the warranty? Do you think that I should complain?!!

    Hi guys, Hope you all had a lovely Christmas. It was sunny and 30 degrees here in Brisbane, balmy and fine for x-mas day. I have a question about the EDU display in my 86 turbo. The digital section ofthe display has all of a sudden faded, almost completely away, to thee point that it is only...

    Afternoon all, Having some problems with my 93' 9000 CS Turbo that I was hoping someone could shed some light on. The fuse went for the dash lights so duly replaced it, but ever since the clock runs at around half speed and the lights in the console have been very dim or non-existent...

    My 9-3 SS is just over a year old. It's mainly kept outside. Unfortunately the door handle has faded from its original black to a light grey: Note that it's only the part you pull out that's faded, not the moulding in the door. Any suggestions as to what I can do? I know you can get "back...

    Ok, my clock, trip computer display and pictogram are very tempremental. Occasionally they are nicely lit, other times they go dark - until they decide to light up again. I assume I have a dodgy connection somewhere, has anybody else had a similar problem on their 9000?

    Most of the paintwork on both my 9000's is in good condition considering the milage of the cars. However, on all the doors on my dark Blue (LE Mans Blue) AERO , beneath the impact strip the paintwork is, well, best described as milky. No amount of polishing seems to bring the proper colour...

    Has anyone had any experience "tarting up" the plastic trim on the bumpers? Its all well and good using the "Back2black" type products over & over, but I'm looking for a more perminant job. Over time they seem to get a faded silvery look which looks rubbish against a gleaming black 9-5! Some...
