  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi There, i have a 2007 1.9td 9-5 estate, i have had to have the water pump and timing belt replaced (£340). There is now no hot or even warm air coming into the cabin. The garage have said they will put a high pressure hose through the mini radiator to flush out any blockages but also that i...
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All. Got a problem with my SAAB 95 estate. It's the 3l diesel on an 02 plate. The engine is fine up until about 80mph then the temperature gauge goes through the roof. It comes down very quickly. It runs all day at 60mph & it doesn't get hot during heavy traffic. Don't think it's the head...

    Recently acquired a 2001 9-5 2.0 auto, all good EXCEPT the heater control isn't working properly. At LO it's ice cold, but as soon as you change the setting it immediately becomes a furnace in car! Is it the control itself that needs replacing or is it something deeper?

    Today I decided to look into the ticking noise coming from the heater behind the glove box. I was told it was the recirculation motor that causes this. I opened it up to have a look. Above is the inside of the box, the gear to the right is missing some teeth and this is the cause of the...

    Hi The heating has stopped working in the 9-3. The climate control appears to be functioning, and the screen is doing the right things, but no heat, or cooling.. I have checked the fuses, and all appear to be good. I suspect it may be the fan that has packed up as a feeble noise is created...
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Im not sure if this is in the right area to post. I drive a 54 Plate SAAB 9-3 120bhp. Now my concern is the engine temp always shows low then what is should. I know in all cars it sits at a happy 90C and in basic terms controls the temp with use of pumping water to the radiator and back in once...

    Hi Guys, I’m currently experiencing a fault with my 2005 9-3 1.9Tid 150. A few weeks ago now the Engine Management Light lit on start up, there was no corresponding message on the SID which still says Check OK when I turn the ignition on. Idle can be lumpy when started from cold. I took...
  14. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    The heating fan on my 9-3 only works when i pull the fuse out and put it back in will normally work for up to 10 minutes then I have to pull over and reinsert the fuse again, is this a heating motor problem or do I need to chase the wiring?? other than that heating is brilliant.

    Hi, Today my 1999 95 estate 2.3t has over heated. Did a few short trips about 3 miles each with about 30min in between. When I got back in the car and drove about half a mile there was a ding and the red triangle came on. I noticed that the temp gauge was just hitting the red. I was about a...

    Just been to look at a 1994 2.3 aero , no heat from heater.Had a look and the expansion tank was dry.Topped it up and checked for the leaks. Now if you squeeze the top hose (which gets hot) you can hear air from the expansion tank cap. It's a black cap - there is no washer on the bottle and i...

    I have a 2000 9.5. Heat can work perfect for days, when switiching from heat to a/c on warm days and then back to heat at night no heat. IMPORTANT If I pull the vacuum line ( and then re-install) from the side of the Heater bypass valve underneath the hood the heater then works as...

    The driver's side wing mirror has stopped clearing - it's only affecting that side, the passenger side is clearing fine. Also the motor is moving the mirror around normally too (it's not a memory or auto-dimming mirror). Is the heating element built into the glass? I can replace that for £16...
