    Hi there, Does anyone here know how to remove completely the fuel flap on a 2008 9-3 TTID? Some hooligans just dented very badly my car and I have started to try fix it but no luck, so my last resort it will be removing the fuel flap and go from there. Hopefully...

    Ok so ive had a look and the swirl bar seems to be buggered. It moves side to side when gently revved no 1 and 2 are firmly attached however 3 is attached but lifts off freely and number 4 is not attached to anything. Around the number 4 is what appears to be some mastic or silicone rubbery...

    Hello, A few days ago our 3 year old daughter was carrying out her usual 'Preventative Maintenance Review' of Mummy's car, when she discovered that the Petrol Flap no longer locked. Having passed her fault report onto our Service Department (me),I whipped the lining out of the boot and removed...

  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Bit odd this but I've noticed my fuel filler flap isn't closing and not dead locking when centrally locked. I think I must be missing a catch or something but I'm not sure what the mechanism looks like. I wondered if anyone could suggest anything or take a couple of close up pics of what it...

    Hi guys, im planning to disengage the swirl flaps this weekend with first job being to take the motor out of the equation. Can someone help me locate and detail how to remove the rod that is connected to the no3 swirl flap? Thanks!

    For anyone who wants to remove the swirl flaps on their TTID pls see below. I did this on my 2008 TTiD last weekend, its on 84k, and well looked after. I think I got lucky... I found a partially broken flap on cylinder 1. Nearly half of it was missing, with the rest hanging on its post /...

    Hi, I have a 2007 1.9 TiD (150). Once or twice on a long run (or sometimes short run), the car will emit swirling clouds of blue/black smoke. There is no effect on performance, which is fine, and the smoke completely disappears if the engine is stopped and immediately restarted. This problem...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi Folks, I thought I'd share my experience in changing out the recirc flap motor on my 1997 9000 Anniversary. I had a couple of instances of the widscreen fogging up in cold weather and after checking this site and the position of the flap, I guessed it was the flap motor playing up. The...

    The fuel flap of my 9-3 Sport Estate doesn't open. Anyone an idea to open it mechanically? Any solution is more than welcome before a run out of gas.

  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi Folks, My Luxury 1997 2.0 CSE Anniversary has been intermittently fogging up and when I look behind the pollen filter, I see the recirc flap stuck fully up. I've been able to push it back down which clears the problem for a while but having read the posts above, I'm resigned to changing the...

    Hi all whilst I was fitting a new battery, I started up the 1.9tdi engine I heard a rattle. Took the engine cover off and had a look, I saw down by the heater plugs a shinny kinked bar that had 4 round posts on it at equal spaces. I could see it had come off 4 posts with pins on which could be...

    Hello, I have recently purchased a 2007 saab 9-3 vector sport (150) diesel estate, but the unlock button on the key fob is not working, I can't get a replacement until next week (everything else on key fob works fine). This was fine until I tried to re-fuel and found that the fuel flap is...

    Great cars when they are working but some costly problems if they go wrong. Although the TiD's had swirl flap failures this does not AFAIK result in the destruction of the engine as it does with the TTiD......
