  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi All, I have been having a few months of hell with my lovely Saab. It started when I left work one night, the car started rough - engine mgmt light came on and I could only do 30MPH. I limped it to the garage as I figured the EGR had finally given up (I had cleaned it several times so thought...

  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Took out the MAP sensor and it was just a ball of oily gunk! Disconnected the battery while I was working. So I gave it a clean and popped it back in. Took it for a drive and the MPG has gone thru the roof! Up from 38 to 48 and 51 and one point. Well worth the 20 minutes or so to clean...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I'm fairly new to Saab, but not new to the automotive forums. I've looked on polish forums, and all over the english saab forums. I've managed to find a somewhat similar issue to what this man was describing. Our problems go hand in hand. Issues On a cold start, the vehicle shift gears as...

    Someone needs their head testing. Probably one of his R tard cruise friends driving too close. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Saab-9-3-1-8t-2004MY-Vector-BREAKING-/360530971441?pt=Automobiles_UK&hash=item53f1520b31

    O so what the actual hell is the amp 1 install, Jesus all dash out pulling random unused fibre optics about cutting all the loom apart thinking I could just rearrange the cable on the bus as I already had the cable to run the amp to the green/blue ones down near the a pillar but oh my no...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Can anyone advise me which plugs to put in my 2.0LPT MY98 9-5. I have scanned this forum and have found at least 3 differing answers and am left a bit confused. The NGK website states it needs BCPR6E-11, but others are saying BCPR6ES-11 or even BCPR6EIX-11 A couple of questions.. What does...
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I foolishly decide to service my 'new' car myself, having been lazy and left it to the indie with the other one. However, the sump plug appears to be welded in. I started with a standard socket, which just rounded off. I have read earlier threads and bought a set of 6 sided sockets...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Just had a summer of hell with my 150 Tid Vector (2005). My engine management light kept coming on, eventually the dealership said the manifold and swirl needed replacing. Got the car home and the engine management light came on again, EGR replaced. Got the car home again and the very next...
  11. Saab News
    This is the sort of stuff I love. Old Saabs getting out there promoting new Saabs. Bring on the legends! This is a terrible Bablefish translation of a press release from Saab Germany (I’ve tried to clean it up a bit) . It seems they’re going to be promoting the release of the Saab Turbo X...
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have just come to change the N/S headlight bulb on my 2003 9-3 SS and I just can't get my hand around the battery case / fuse box / washer filler bottle. Does the actual unit have to come out? If so I also assume the bumper has to come off. I know some Jag's have to have half the car...

    Went to start Sabine this morning,,, turn the key get a click and nothing!!! Any suggestions? Went fine last time I used it on Friday. Haven't called the emergency yet as I had to get the GF to the airport (and she missed her flight) and then go to work, at least the public transport system...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Usual Friday afternoon, busier work schedule than expected, A31 packed as people leaving early, come home, find usual bills through the letterbox, pic up one piece of post and find 'If undelivered please return to Swain & Jones, Farnham...', but, for some reason I bent the letter to feel a card...

    I drove past Saab City today - they are now a Vauxhall dealership as well!!!!!! How long has this been going on?!!! This is just going mad!! It just makes me sick - talk about the flagship dealership devaluing it's brand!! GM you are all idiots! I think that Saab will just become a Model in...

    Hi all, after replacing the front discs ( BREMBO) and pads, (FERDO), then bleeding, according to the Haynes manual, ( not the way I was taught 30years ago but never mind). I still find that the brake pedal needs two stabs to get it firm, ( my wife only needs to look at me), I’m going to use...
