  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    2nd post tonight, got a knock from steering when stationary if turned left\right sharply, apparantly 'normal', and otherwise nice tight steering and not noticed on the move, but what is the grease spray fix some people are talking about and is my car showing the symptons that this could fix or...
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, I started getting severe vibration from my 9-5 2.2 tid front wheels. The problem was traced to the fact that the grease had leaked out of the drive shaft inner boot. I managed to pull the boot back and replenish the joint with CV grease. This cured the problem. However it still leaks. I...
  3. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    I have with great difficulty managed to free all four alloys on my 93 convertible. I plan to copper grease the wheel hubs before re-applying the wheels. Can anyone please tell me how thick a layer should be applied around the wheel hub collar ? Also, the Saab 93 hand book says to clean any rust...

    I am giving my 9000 Aero a bit of TLC . I have a tube of DOW DC4 silicone grease which i will use on the DI. However, there is plenty on the net about dielectric grease being a wonder substance for coating electrical connectors, not just the plastic/rubber sheathing but specifically the...

    I'm in the process of changing the Di cassette and plugs and have read about using silicone grease to keep the water out, but which to use? Is the following PTFE aerosol ok? http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?Module...&doy=search
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    There have been a few posting about using this grease in the hope that it will prevent the DI failing and give better mpg etc., so I bought a tube. I was surprised to find that it was very "stiff" and difficult to get out of the tube (like bathroom silicon which had been on the shelf too long)...

    Hello, Should I, as I have always done on my previous cars including an early 9000, put a little anti-seize compound on the threads of spark plugs? I only ask because I noticed on the NGK website's instructions for fitting their plugs they don't mention it. So had a look at Bosch's...

  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I thought that the approved method of replacing spark plugs was using electro-conductive grease on the tops of the plugs before putting the DI unit back on, but I can't find any reference to this in the forums - am I dreaming it, or perhaps using the wrong searcg criteria? And if not, where do...

  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Just received a set of Bright Zinc wheel nuts from Rob at Trackstore, to fit to my Aero. My question is - do I need to grease the threads before I fit them? If so, should I be using any particular grade of grease?
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Has anyone ever done this... contaminated the plug contact, or the springs in the DI, with the silicone grease? How in fact do you apply the grease and fit the DI to make sure you don't? What would be the symptoms if this happened? Thanks!
