  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi All from a new member! I've had my Saab 93 since Dec 2009 and 83,000 miles without an issue!! (touching wood!) but....last night the sat nav froze in location and didn't give me any touch screen and the buttons down the side wouldn't work either....I have since taken the Sat Nav disc out and...
  2. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Morning all, In this cold weather i have been noticing some odd noises and thought i would run it by the experts! When setting off, and going over a speed bump, i have been getting a noise which sounds as if the dampers are frozen. Not certain, but i'm assuming 98 9-3 Convertible 2.0 non...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My 9-5 auto has suffered from frozen rear brakes (nearside, then offside) on the last two mornings. Parked outside, - 14 and - 10 degrees C. Forward problem only - no trouble reversing. Upon warming (I used a fan blower), the brake released. On the second occasion, as I was in a hurry to get...

    This must be a common issue for lots of us just now! I have a 93 and a 95, both of which have been outstanding through this awful winter weather. But... at temperatures less than minus 3, the washer jets freeze up and the salt build up on the screen blinds you. Has anyone found a solution?

    Hi, Just been out in 5 inches of snow and with ambient temperature reading -6 deg, went to use what had earlier today been a fully functional handbrake and it was frozen solid. Unfortunately no choice but to pull harder until brake engaged. Not surprisingly released handbrake and brakes stuck on...
  7. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi everyone, In these cold times, our 900 happens to have a frozen doorlock too regularly. It wouldn't be a problem if the other lock was working, but it isn't. So I have to climb through the boot to unlock a door, not really practical. From the inside the door unlocks perfectly and the...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Well, it got cold last night here in NY(USA) and my drivers door lock has frozen in place. This usually wouldnt be a big deal as I could just enter from the passenger door, but since this is a saab I cant do that. The Factory alarm system is triggered on and off by the drivers door lock...so if...

    Any suggestions on how to keep my antenna from freezing? It appears that moisture gets into the antenna and prevents either part or all of the antenna from expanding. Thanks!

  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Now after getting my lovely new tyres fitted I thought I was all set for winter. Wrong ! Just went to take my son home and jumped into the car to disciver that it was -6 deg (this at 9:15 pm)and the hand brake wouldn't release. It was frozen on and makes reversing a tad difficult. Now I...

  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just a couple of questions I use Redex injection cleaner at every fill up to help keep the fuel system clean, prevent the dreaded throttle body problem and as an upper cylinder lubricant. Comments Also went out to defrost the car this morning and the overnight rain followed by early...

    What's the best way to unfreeze a frozen lock? All frosty this morning, and the Mrs could not get into her Golf at all. Presume it's just the moisture working its way into the lock and freezing. Would WD40 work? (Think I'll clear some cr4p from the garage and put her car in there tonight!)

    Anyone know why a car which is built for Swedish winters, has problems with door locks freezing up. My 1990 9000 Turbo this last two days, has had to have very hot water poured over door handles to (1) get door to open and (2) to get it to shut again. Is there anything that can prevent such...
