  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi All, I have a 2006 1.9Tid convertible the centre panel (below the radio) with the 3 dials in for temperature, fan speed and direction control. Now the dark nights have arrived I have noticed there is no illumination from the dials at night. But I am not sure how this section comes out and...

  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi there, I just took my Saab into Vauxhaul Rowcliffes in Taunton (that have a decent ex Saab mechanic in there) for its MOT and it failed because of rear disks and pads. I am pretty sure those disks are about two years old or less so wasn't expecting that. Anyway, they were quoting £189 inc...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello all, A brief run down of what I'm trying to do, I have a 2003 9-3 2.2 vector sport 156000 miles on, and for the past few months it's been running different, loads of black smoke coming out of exhaust when driving, loss of fuel economy, slight hesitant on boosting, sometimes going into...

    My 2007 9-3 Anniversary 1.9 TiD saloon failed the MoT today. Two things, a broken rear NS spring and a front anti-roll bar drop link. MoT garage have estimated 'about 200 quid mate', but will be confirming their price tomorrow. I checked with GSF's website, and a spring is £48 and a drop link...
  6. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    New Fuel Pump Didn't Fix It I've been wrestling with fuel delivery problems for more than a month and need a clue on what to try next. Back story: My 91 900 was having hard cold start problems which appeared to be a bad fuel line return check valve in the elbowfitting on top of the fuel...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I own a '07 9-3 2.0T with a P2138 code. From the little reading up on this code it seems like it may be a simple fix. This is my first Saab, so can anyone offer advice/suggestions in what steps I need take to fix this problem. Thanks, Dan
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I've been looking into why my passenger door mirror does not work in X,Y or fold directions, but auto dimming and heating work fine. I bought the Haynes manual to help with this but none of the wiring colours matched. Its not much good for anything useful as far as I can see, as I don't have a...
  9. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    I have a 1993 saab 900 S convertable every thing works. The driver side rear window was working slow and went down and would not come up. I took the console switch out and opened the top up for the very first time. No No it all splashed out. All those "V" coper conections that look like selonoid...

  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Can anyone offer any advice, please. The ride on this car is simply terrible and needs to be softened up quite a bit. Bumps and pothole forces crash through the car - there has to be a better way. The car has now done 130k miles so I'm not sure if the suspension is worn out or never was any good...
  12. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    I have a 2001 9-5 Aero 5-spd with 131K with some big repair bills on the horizon. The clutch which is still the original and quite impressive ( at least to me!) and the struts. The check engine light went on today so perhaps another problem brewing. The cars value is in the low $2K's and...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    A few months ago the SatNav on my 06 Aero became intermittent. Sometimes it was greyed out on central LCD so you couldn't select it. Sometimes it was present. When it was available it worked fine (insofar as Saab's SatNav can be said to work!) Now it's always greyed out, so I have no SatNav at...

    Say your EML comes on and it's EGR problem and it's needs uncle Kev's special cleaner, can you disconnect it, reset the EML and drive without causing any problems? I'm just looking for a quick fix if my EGR fails me again on the motorway and I want to say get to my destination? I've heard that...
  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi All, About 2 months ago my 2004 9-3 2.0t Convertible went to a local garage (former Saab Technicians) to have a water leak + other bits fixed. Returned with garage invoicing for new Water Pump and other works £683. As the car was my fair weather toy it was not used but returned to its home...

    My zorst flexi has gone all sooty & generally black...... Should I chop it out & attempt to replace it with a stainless repair item/kit........ Or replace the complete section......? (It's not noisy.....Yet) ...... Anyone attempted this manoeuvre?
  17. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    Just bought a 54 plate Aero convertible and like many others I am slightly underwhelmed by the audio capabilities. I had a word with my pet technician (a genius at this kind of thing) and even he said don't bother. I was just coming round to the idea that I would have to make do with my old...
  18. Saab Parts / Accessories, FOR SALE and WANTED
    I am selling this roof set up that i have had on my 06 saab 93 sportwagon and they have been great. i have decided to put them on this forum as it took me a while to get 3 saab ones and i thought this would be the best place to sell them as people on here would appreciate it. They are arguably...
  19. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I fixed my SID knob about 6 months ago and finally got around to making a video to show how it's done. It's super-simple and takes about 2 minutes. The problem I was having was that the display wouldn't change when I twisted the knob, or sometimes it would change but skip two or three settings...
  20. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    so my blower was dicky for a while then gave up as its a common fault with Saab 93s and vectras alike ( same underneath) I thought I would do a guide for every one as on eBay 2nd hand I've seen these for over £120 which is ridiculous... The fault is water ingress through the pollen filter into...
