  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Guys, Last week I went to drive my 93 tdi only to discover that it didn’t want to go into gear. The change was unbelievably stiff and the gear lever wouldn’t centre. A quick check on here and I discovered that it was probably the gear turret bush (a common fault). Anyway, I ordered the...
  2. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, when I bought this car it was a bit of a pain engaging reverse but of late all gearchanges have become so notchy that I'm getting tennis elbow. There's oil in the gearbox and I've topped it up. It's pretty black and thick so I'm going to change it. The manual says don't use synthetic, can...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    the gearchange surround on my 9-3 vector 57 plate is scrached to hell (by the previous owner i might add) does anybody do a stick on carbon/ effect layover ? thanks in advance

    Hello My fathers 2000 9-3 2.2tid has developed a notchy gearchange which is getting very gradually worse, not in all gears and is noticed when changing both up/down. My first thought is the selector mechanism but wondered what yours were, is it a common issue im unaware of? There is also a...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My car's the 'facelift', '02 registered with the 5-speed autobox. 102k miles, last serviced by SAAB about 10k ago, when the gearbox oil was changed. When I first got the car about 18m ago (SAAB Approved Used), I wasn't happy with the downchanges on the 'box, particularly at low speeds, so had...

    Hi guys, my aero,s going great apart from a small niggle (I hope) gearchange is smooth and tight up through all gears and back apart from 3rd to 2nd when I have to quickly enter 1st gate then 2nd does this sound like a mount,or a linkage problem ?cheers,Bill.
  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello, 9-3 2.0SE LPT 2002 When changing up from first to second, the automatic box makes a short descending sound like a little sigh, quiet and not noticeable under heavier acceleration. It doesn't happen on any other changes (or, if it does, it's too quiet to be heard). Is this something I...

  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Dear All, Purchased a replacement for my 9000 AERO about a month ago. Its a 1999 9-5 2.3 LPT SE manual with 115,000m. When changing gear, and its especially noticeable in 1st & 2nd, the revs don't seem to drop very quickly even with foot sompletely off the throttle. Do they all do that ?, if...
  10. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    I have an 1986 T16S (with a '90 gearbox). It has run fine for 5 months until successfully "proving a point" against a tuned MX5. Whilst making a hurried high speed downchange into third, the gearchange suddenly went stiff, it reluctantly changed back up to 4th, but when reaching traffic ligths...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've been wondering for a while whether to go through the procedure described here for changing the gearbox oil in my 9-5, as the gearchange isn't brilliant. What has put me off is the potential cost for possibly no improvement. However, I noticed while driving the car the other day (I only...
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have noticed the last few days that my autobox is getting jerky changing up from 3rd to 4th gears. It does it all the time when i'm booting it and sometimes under normal driving. Other times it will change smoothly. Also, At the same time as the jerkiness started, when it's cold (first start...

    Hello folks, The noises coming from my Aero gearbox have developed somewhat since my last posting. If you remember I had enquired about excessive stick movement and a metallic click going from drive to over-run (especially in third). The car now has a constant regular clatter on over-run. It...

  16. Saab 99, 90 (1969 - 1984)
    Before I systematically destroy the rubber linkage for teh gearchange on my '78 99 turbo, can I just confirm that once I've undone the nut/washer, the pin then pushes out? I've tapped it quite firmly with a hammer, but nothing has moved. Before I start beating hell out of it (relatively!), can...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have a 2002 9-5 Aero Combi. Love the car after my 2001 9-3 Aero, better performance, roadholding, feel, etc., etc,. The dealer here in Darmstadt Germany said I would like it much better and he was right! One problem though - the change from 4th to 5th Gear is rather notchy and sometimes does...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I can't help but notice that the gearchange on my Aero seems a little 'notvhy' even if i change gears with the engine off etc. I got a Saab 93 with 9K on the clock as a loan car when mine went in for a service and the gearbox felt very smooth when changing. I am going to replace the engine...
