  2. New Member Introductions.
    Thanks for letting me join your gang ? I’ve just bought a 2008 9-3 Vector Sportwagon Estate 1.9 diesel. I wanted something cheap and practical to last me until April when my new car arrives. Well..... I’ve fallen for it!! I can’t believe how good this car is! 47 mpg. Smooth as anything I’ve...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello guys Have a problem with my 2009 Saab 9-3 1.8t (Biopower). When I shift in high RPM (after 4500 RPM, any gear) the clutch pedal wont come up all the way. It comes up 1/3 of the way, and I have to push it up with my foot. It is possible to change gear even if I dont push up. If I pump...

    2007 Saab 93 2.0T with 150 Watt 7 Speaker Audio System. Hello all and as the name may suggest, I am finally reunited with my beloved 93 after being on a work assignment overseas for two years! In any event my younger brother has been driving and taking care of my car since I've been away and...
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, My 9000 from 1993 has done 287k's and in need of some work to pass the next warrant. I saw a 2002 from 1995 for sale with 200kms which probably goes for a low price. Looks like a very good looking car, but not sure what to expect. Read about the sludge issues and the car also has lots of...

    Hi Folks, I'd appreciate a bit of advice, please, re my 10-reg 9-3X SportCombi petrol auto with 64K on the clock. I've had this code thrown up now 3 times in the last few months, the last one last night. I hope it's not a failing cat and even a new sensor could be troublesome given how they...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Started to notice a high pitched whine from under the bonnet, which goes up in pitch along with engine speed. Does this suggest imminent turbo problems? Any ideas, please? Thanks

  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi there, I just took my Saab into Vauxhaul Rowcliffes in Taunton (that have a decent ex Saab mechanic in there) for its MOT and it failed because of rear disks and pads. I am pretty sure those disks are about two years old or less so wasn't expecting that. Anyway, they were quoting £189 inc...

  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Help! Last night I had to nip into town, So out into the cold and into the trusty jalopy - to be greeted by the SID message 'High level brake light failure'. I was parked up against the garage door, and a quick check in the mirror with foot-brake depressed confirmed no working high level brake...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I had another thread but wanted to ask this on its own. My Aero went a bit crazy the last few weeks resulting in a flaming exhaust and hot ash being spewed from the back. It cleared the limited performance mode light(which threw no codes). I checked the oil level on advice from here and sure...

  17. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have seen so many window posting about driver windows that go up, then seem to partially come back down. I've read a few techniques to remove the #5 fuse, and reset some sort of pinch roller or something like that. Well, my problem is very different. The window auto down and auto up work fine...
  18. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Daughter's 2003 9-3 high beams work but won't stay on, and it's not the circuit breaker. Holding the staulk back, the high beams stay illuminated. It feels like there's something worn down inside the switch mechanism. 103,000 miles, everything works fine except this. The car is due for...
  19. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've had a bit of a mishap and have broken the cover of the high level rear brake light on my Saab 9-5 Estate. Can I get a cover to replace it myself or do I have to get a whole new light unit? I don't want to take it off until I have a replacement. I do not think the inside is damaged. Thanks
