    Morning all, Just looking for a bit of advice. I left my Saab 9-3 Tid 07 plate standing for 4 weeks after suffering a heart attack. When I drove it for the first time on Monday the gear knob felt like it was in a tin of syrup. It wouldn’t centre on its own, I can’t select 1st without selecting...

    Hey all, Just bought myself a lovely 9-3 1.8t saloon. It's got a 5 speed manual gearbox. I've noticed that when in 5th gear and coasting at about 70 mph that there is a quiet but noticeable whine. It increases in loudness and pitch as I increase the revs/speed. If I push in the clutch or...

    Well I've looked all over for recommended gearbox oil and is just a minefield of opinions. Anyway all I want to know is will 75-90 semi synthetic manual transmission fluid be ok to use in my '91 saab 9000 carlsson turbo. I personally think that's ok ill be changing it out regularly and will...

    I did the turret repair this morning, longest part was removing the old bush. Anyway it all seemed to go well, put it all back together but not very happy from what I expected. The gear selector feels very stiff and it doesn't feel to have any spring to return back to neutral. Anyone else done...
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi there, anyone did it already ? Is it really complicated ? I mean once the gearbox is removed from the car, how difficult is it to just swap the valve body AND the filter with new ones? Nothing else just swapping. Thank you.

    I've had this car since August and love it to bits except for one thing and that's the notchy gearchange which is driving me nuts. There's no real play in the gear lever but it just doesn't seem to want to change smoothly and quickly which make shall we say vigorous driving somewhat tiresome. It...

    Guys, Here's a poser for those with parts lists ! A pal and I have bought a 55 plate manual Aero estate. Unfortunately it jumps out of 5th gear. Scanning the site would seem to indicate that the 5th hub is defective but can be repaired by removing the end cover from the 'box with it still in...

    Hi! It's a B207R with F40 gearbox. I have a knocking by gearshift and at low speed when parking. It should be dmf or gearbox.. Gearbox mount seems to be good. The video es with 6 gear engaged. The same sounds in other gears.

    What do you guys suggest to improve the shifting feel of the 6-speed manual gearbox? I don't really want to get the short shifter (I'm happy with the stock throw, and it is rather expensive), but don't know of any other ways to improve the notchiness of the stock mechanism. I have seen the...

    I have gotten the repair kit from 2 stroke a while ago for the stiff gearbox turret, and finally got around to installing it last weekend. My car has the 2.8 turbo, so I wasn't able to completely remove the turret to complete the job (because the turbo sits on top of the gearbox turret). I had...

    Hey everybody, does anyone know if I need a certain part number for a steering wheel lock module? Or if I can buy a used on off eBay that says its for a 03 Saab 9-3?
