  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    During my windscreen replacement the good people at Autoglass have somehow managed to tear the headlining in my 9-3 Vector Sport. As they seem incapable of fixing it and it looks like I'm gonna have to do it myself and sue them for the cost, does anybody have any experience of doing this - is it...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi folks, any pointers on removing the headlining from my 9-3 Aero T Vert 2004 spec, my front to rear hydraulic hose has burst and I need access to see which one I need to order. Many thanks
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    The headlining on my convertible has dropped down above the rear seats. It's the first time the roof has been down for a few months. When I put the roof back up, the plastic support for the headlining separated from the metal hoop which supports the canvas roof (it's really just thin plastic...

    Very good condition CS Aero headling w/o sunroof for sale for very small beer donation, act fast & you can swap it into your car on my drive. It is in the way of measuring up for a roll cage so needs to go now.

    Hi All the dreaded headlining has started to go on my 5dr 900. I'd probably give it a go myself but as I don't have access to a garage it doesn't seem possible. I'm based in Edinburgh, has anyone had their headlingin replaced by a car trimmer or upholsterer in the area? Many thanks

    Hello I know this is probably becoming a boreing subject by now, however can any one reconmend anyone in the midlands who can recover the hedlining to a high standard. I have on other 900s removed it myself and got it recovered localy only for it two sag again within a couple of months. Abbott...

    a couple of tiny rust holes (caused by dropping roofbars on roof) need fixing and I want to remove the headlining to patch underneath. Also the (steel) sunroof inside cloth cover is loose and I need to retighten and secure. Any advice greatfully received on headliner removal and fixing the...

    My Headliner has started not only to sag but the fabrics also worn out fraying at the edges and separating from the foam backing (that starting to turn to dust), so it need recovering. After I did a search in this forum, I can see its not an easy job to do single handedly its 9000CDE so its got...
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I need to pull down the rear end of the headlining to inspect the wiring for the high level light and in particular the rubber sheath/grommet(4521456). I think it has unlipped itself from the male piece in the roof and i can't push it back on without holding the male end , hence the need to...
  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, Anyone with any experience with this sort of noise - I'd love to hear from you. My 93tid (s/wagon) has a slight intermittent rattle that (when driving) is bump sensitive. I initially thought the sound was coming from behind the dash, but when lowering my head to pin-point the noise, it...
  12. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi All, A few quick questions on my lovely ageing '93 900LPT: 1) What rear shocks would you recommend for a car that does a fair amount of towing (two motorbikes on a trailer)? I don't want to lose the super-plush ride of the standard shocks but she's down on her stops when fully laden. 2) I...
  13. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Has anyone investigated the cost of getting new headlinings made up. You can buy new fibreglass Range Rover ones for about £100, and if we can find out who makes them it might be worth getting a batch of SAAB ones done. We'd need to identify the differences between them (2,3,4 or 5 door) it...
  14. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hello saabanistas - been away for a while and now I'm back, got some more work to do on the 92 900S auto vert. Whilst I was away had c/l sorted out (thanks TB), and made ready for alarm; fitted wooden dash, new speedo, sorted foglights so they are not on all the time (Japanese quirk?), replaced...
  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi guys, Every rime I raise the roof on my 02 9-3 'Vert, I have to reclip the headlining back to the 'bow' over the rear seats. It's becoming a nuisance, and is spoiling what is a nice car - anybody got any suggestions as to a cure please - I've tried velcro, but a couple of hours in the sun...

    <font color="green"> </font> I recently bought a reconditioed headlining but in transport it cracked on either side of the sun roof cutout. Other than this it is in great condition. Can I effect a repair using fibreglass or will the resin seep through the card? Anyone have any other ideas?
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Are there any details on removal and refitting the headlining of my 9000. A search gave no results.
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Has anyone replaced a 9000 headliner with sunroof Where could one get a good second hand one? Thanks
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I just need to get behind the rear of the headlining, and I'm trying to remember how to remove the two plastic "plugs" by the hatch. I've done this on my old 9000, but that was a while ago, and these seem different. I've applied quite a lot of force to them with no joy, and I fear I'm going to...
  20. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Can anyone tell me if the headlining shell is the same for 3- and 5-door 900s? (both with sunroof) Cheers James
