  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello All, This is my posting and looking forward to your comments - fixing this issue. As I stated in the title, I'm having issues starting my 9-3 first start of the day when it's cold outside. Once she has been started, she fires right up throughout the day. During the summer I have no...

    I have just bought a nextbase hardwire kit for my dash cam, from looking in the Haynes manual wiring diagrams it appears that the fuses in the passengerside compartment are all live pre ignition. Can someone please tell me I'm wrong or the diagrams are crap, otherwise I'm going to need to locate...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    So, some of you dads may get a chuckle out of this... I've got this project car I've inherited. The teen owner is still a few clues shy of a full box, but typical teenager. The vacuum leaks are repaired sort of, but he knows he needs a new O2 sensor. Anyway, Saturday night, planning on...

    Hi. I have been a member since 2008 ( when I brought a 9-3 1.9 TID) Today I purchased a 2008 9-3 Turbo X. Lovely looking and sounding car, the problem is, whilst driving home the 90 miles from Surrey I noticed that if I tried to drive hard the car was very hesitant and jerky from about 3000...

    I am having problems like others I have read on forums with my car starting in the morning, once it starts it drives fine. I have had garage look into it but no error codes or faults are showing up. It has been suggested a pulley could have slipped causing timing issues and it will be trial and...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I'm no mechanic but can manage do the odd job around the car. I have a damaged door (driver’s side, front) which I need to replace – is this a job a newbie could tackle? I've done a site search (in fact a web wide search) and not luck in terms of finding any 'how to' guide. It’s a 2006 9-3...

    Saab 9-3 Estate owner, low mileage, 2006. It failed its MOT on Monday, the left (rear) brakelight stayed on if you pressed the brakes then released with the lights on. This didn't happen on the right side nor did it happen on either side if the lights were off. The MOT garage said to go...
