  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Due to my wifes rather damaged leg, I would be interested in learning this measurement. I have measured it on our car by placing a straight edge across the drivers seat and measuring from this to the ground. It will take a bit of time, but there is not a car handy to us.

    Hi everyone. Could anyone tell me what is the correct ride height for a 2002 9-5 arc?

    Hello All, Just in the middle of ordering my new discs and pads. Double checked and my car has the 314mm Caliper. The company im ordering them off, has said there is 2 pad options for the caliper, of course I have no idea at all! One is at 71mm and the other is at 77mm...

    I just swap my linear springs to aero ones on m'06 model. I immediately notice the front is higher by about 1 finger. Ride is still lower than before but I am not sure if this normal. Can anyone advice?

    I have noticed that my o/s headlamp is shining low compared to the n/s unit. I moved the height adjuster switch on the dash and whilst the n/s worked, the o/s did not so I assume that something has broken. The local Saab garage has quoted me £780 to replace the whole light cluster unit (ouch!)...

    anybody know what the ride height should be on the above. the rear is just pukka but to look at the front it just looks like something is missing or simply too high.

    Hey Recently had my front shocks and springs replaced at a fast fit garage approx 3 weeks ago. However the front ride height seems marginally higher than the rear, I've been back to the garage and they have said the springs will need time to "settle" however I have completed 500 miles since...

    2004 9-3 Vector. The driver's seat doesn't maintain the set height - has been dropping over a period of days. But now it's occuring during even a short drive. Seen references to the problem in various forums but no solutions. Would appreciate any ideas to save me from spending most of my...

    My drivers seat belt height adjuster has become stuck, how do I get it to budge or fix it? I've tried removing the plastic trim to have a look, but that's not co-operating very well either. :( I remember a couple of posts on here a while back with a possible fix, but I've had a good search...

    Hi Guys Me again, following on from the warranty replacement of the front springs on my 05 plate 9-3 1.8T sport, 2 weeks ago. I have noticed that it "appears" to be riding lower than before. a curb that I parked nose to before replacement, I now cannot park over without scraping the front...

    Afternoon All, There's a few topics on towbars for our Saabs, but none seem to mention height of the towball. I've just spoken to Saab at Warrington who say it's the same towbar for the Aero as for other 95s. Given that the Aero is lower, will that not make the towball lower??? Those of you that...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All, My trusty 95 is now on 146k but has trashed its last pair of Goodyear F1 Assys in 10k with terrible cupping on the inner edge. It's always done this to a certain extent but this is getting ridiculous! Before the new tyres went on, I had the long arm bushes replaced by those fine chaps...

    hi everyone, wonder if any of you can help me please. Just got out of my car and tried to adjust the seat height up ready for my wife to get back into it, and pumped the lever upwards a couple of times then the handle went loose and the seat wasnt adjusting anymore. Anyone else had this...

    Hi everyone, after some research I decided to put a set of Koni FSD on my 9-3ss to improve the comfort/handling. However after some further reading in other forums I discovered in some cases (eg, Audi TT) the FSD will raise the vehicle height by approx 10mm. Is that true for Saab 9-3ss as...

    Hello All does anybody know how to fix the seat height adjuster on a MY04 9-3ss, mines just gone all floppy! luckily the seat is set at the correct height. Cheers in advance
  18. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hope someone can help with this. Have just bought a convertible and even on the max height adjust find the position a little too low when compared to my 9-5 aero. I am only 5ft 4 and my wife is just under 5ft so we are both shorter than average. Is a kit available to raise the seat height...
  19. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    93 ss drivers seat height drops from fully raised after a couple of trips and requires a couple of strokes on the height adjuster to return it to fully raised position. Only recently bought the car so wondering if this is normal or can be cured ?
  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Evening, gents. On my newly-bought 9-5, the xenon headlights cycled up and down the first time I used them (when I collected the car), but now they no longer do so, and stay set very high. I presume it's one of the suspension height sensors broken; if so, does the symptom sugest either the front...
