  1. Saab 9-3 & GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi.. Can I use later model cd changers with my original head unit or must I replace with the same one that's failed which says it's a 1998 unit too ? Happy to use converter cable if a available. Theres always new old stock 2003-2006 models available so that would be good if they work with mine?
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    The other week, my clutch disappeared whilst I was hurtling down the motorway at 80! The RAC service came out and bled the system via the nipple in the engine bay to get it working again and I drove it home with his escort. Initially it felt more spongey than before the problem happened, but it...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    So, what a day! It started yesterday actually when the old smokey diesel battlewagon started to rev just over 1,000rpm in idle and wouldn't settle down regardless of how long I left her. Car wasn't reaching temp no matter how hard I tried, even travelling at 3,000rpm for quite some time I...

    Just wondering if anyone knows if anyone has been failed on the MOT due to a missing DPF.... Seems after talking to a few MOT testers, that they don't have a hard and fast list of what cars did and didn't have them and if there was any doubt then the regs state pass it... Makes sense...

    Hi Guys you have always helped in the past so fingers crossed on this one So it failed its MOT on the following Flexi Exhaust has major leak - Can I just get a replacement flexi and have it welded? Offside Front Track Rod end - sure these are easy enough to change? Both rear Upper Radius Arms...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I am hoping someone will let me know why my steering rack replacements are failing after about 1 year? This is getting very expensive and I am tempted to get rid of it. Surely someone has had the same problem. The previous owner had two fitted within 3 years and I had mine fitted last year...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello to all I've got a new problem. This evening, whilst gently reversing out of my driveway as it's done for years, when I went to move forward, absolutely nothing happened. At first I thought that it must have been either gearbox or clutch related, as there had been no noise between...
  8. Non Saab advice
    Dear all, I am looking for some advice here for my other half's VW Polo 1.4 16v. Her car failed on CO emissions, I have read on some other forums that it might not necessarily be the case of anything defective, as HC and Lambda values were well within the limits. I assume that the car has some...
  9. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all. Could you take a glance at the below picture and tell me your thoughts. It shows the rear underside of my y2k 9-3 vert. It has covered 16k miles with these springs and shocks (koni adjustable) and has just failed its MOT on account of them sagging. 1) do you agree these are...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have a '01 9-5 Turbo that I received from my mother. Am not much of a 'car guy' but I used to fix aircrafts for a living before family issues compelled a career change into semiconductor manufacturing, and I prefers motorcycles over cars anyway. I have never owned a car as nice in physical...

    Someone needs to make some sump nuts to fit the Tid engines that are "Not" Crap :mad: (High tensile steel & a BIG{er} Head on em.... Ideally a tall head too..... Yeah! I gave up trying to remove mine, that had been in place for all of 10K (Unless they sucked the oil out last time) Then 37K...
  12. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Hi I've just been reading through an article in a "Blueprint" mag (if you don't know Blueprint supply aftermarket parts for Jap, Korean & some US cars) regarding failed DPF Regen. Those of you lucky enough to own a Saab with a DPF might be interested. The relevant part said "... The dipstick...

  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, not posted much in the past and i have had a search around before posting this ''help''. Around 4 months ago my power steering failed, resulting in a new steering rack and i thought everything was fine with my 2003 9-3. So 5 weeks ago, i began having traction control failure, stability...

  16. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi everyone, so the other day it rained heavy and our 9-3 2000 convertible began leaking. We looked under the inside skirt and the water was just dripping in at several points (wherever it was pooling above). You could see the drops coming in. We picked up some raggtop cleaner and protector...

    Hi all, Suffered a problem with my 55 93 Aero today, whilst driving the battery seemed to die. Wipers went slow, lights dim, radio/aircon died. Basically anything needed power stopped working. Iam trying to figure out if its the battery that went or the alternator, my question is: when you...

  19. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi folks I've got a 2001 95 and my one and only key has stopped working - at least the remote part. It still opens the car by putting it in the lock and it still starts the car OK, it's just the remote buttons that do nothing. I've changed the battery and tried the 4 presses of the unlock...
  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    So this is how it goes. You sign up for the forum and everything starts to go wrong. I have an 03 95 2.2tid. It has been slow at starting recently. Yesterday it didn't start at all. It would crank but not fire. Eventually flattened the battery and ended up calling out a local mechanic that...
