    Tax due end of month as is the MOT so i thought i would make a start. Having had a Honda for the past few years MOT's held little fear, the only thing replaced in 30k of miles on a 100,000 mile car was 1 wheel bearing! My Aero has done 106k, 5k in my possession and has had literally £1000's...

    Hi guys, I bought a 2005 Saab 9-5 estate 1.9 TiD from a motor dealer (not saab garage) yesterday and the more I drive the more I notice quite a distinct knocking when the car is at idle and the clutch is depressed. I've been advised by a friend who works for GM that the Dual Mass Flywheel...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    .. So, I lend the car to my neighbour while away for a couple of weeks. He used it for towing a trailer, presumably with faulty wiring.

  19. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi 3rd gear disappeared (in my already replaced gearbox) the other day. I know a gearbox rebuild may be an option but suspect it may just be cheaper to get a bargain replacement box from a breaker and swap it One dealer has a box at a great price which he says will fit (as it came from same...
  20. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi all, In a spot! MOT and tax due and ABS light is on permanently. It was coming on intermittently last year which suggested it was a wheel sensor on the way out. I've dug around and apprently the wheel sensors are specific to each wheel (and at £120 each - an expensive 1 in 4 guess) so...
