    1. Does anyone have any experience with the Aero convertible AC system? Specifically, when I turn on the car, the AC always comes on at full blast. I'd like it to come on at level 2 or 3, no more. Nothing in the SID AC system settings, so maybe a tech 2 issue? 2. I had to disconnect the...
  2. Saab Recommendations Chris Porter is your man for diagnosis and replacement hoses. £60 including postage and a very handy spanner man at my local indie and my hood on the 93 is working like new. Ordered the correct hose number quickly and accurately, jobs a good un.:cool:

    Can anyone help with the following, I own a 05 9-3 1.9 diesel and the clutch pedal has gone to the floor and I suspect it may be the flexihose going to the slave cylinder, has anyone had similar experiences?

    Just after some help. One of the pipes on my 2004 convertable is leaking at the brass connector. I have attached a photo. Anyone she'd any light on what number this connector is. I'm told that the ones commonly failing are 65 and 66? I have found a company, down south that provides improved...

    Hey Saab lovers! My new to me 2004 Saab 9-3 convertible has a bad hydraulic actuator on the convertible over passenger head area. My 2 day old car let green slime out all over my passenger seat as I closed the roof . :( since Saab is not longer able to sell parts I am told that a company on the...

    Hi, advice please. I have a '98 9-3 SE Convertible. When I bought the car the hydraulic oil for the roof pump was low. I looked at the forum to see what people were using as a replacement. In the end I used some low viscosity machine oil from work. This worked fine for a season then the pump...

    I need to replace the #65 line for my convertible top. I have the line pulled out from the front, but can't figure out how to get it off at the pump end. The fitting just spins, can't figure out how to remove the line from the pump. Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Interesting problem occurring in 9-3 Convertibles. The hydraulic cyclinder that controls the master latch for the convertible top has been failing at a decent rate. That means leaking hydraulic fluid all into your front seat area. And worse, the cylinder is on intergalactic backorder and costs...

    For anyone who has had a failure of the master latch hyudraulic cylinder of their 9-3 Convertible, you may already be experiencing the problem of obtaining a new/used hydraulic cylinder as a replacement. As my mechanic said- "these seem to be on intergalactic backorder". And what odd Saab part...

    Hi All, can anyone tell me the procedure for removing the hydraulic cylinders that operate the soft top on a '99 model? I want to fit new seals / cylinders, and would like some guidance on the best way to strip the assembly.

Inspection revealed after been serviced by a non Saab dealer they didn't put enough oil in, only to base of dipstick. filled up and used wins to help fill oil in lifters drove...

    My car's got the same AF33 automatic 5-speed gearbox as used in many Saabs. For the last year the car has been thudding/jolting when I first switch it on and shift from Park into Drive. Reverse is fine and the gearbox changes up and down with no problems during normal driving. It's only when...

    I know this has been brought up many time before, but as spring is (hopefully) almost upon us, I thought I'd just ask again: Is there anyone anywhere who knows where you can get your leaky roof rams reconditioned - rather than buy new ones at a silly price? It must be like refurbishing SIDs -...
  19. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    After worsening roof problems, it seems the two hydraulic rams on my 2000 93 are starting to leak quite badly. Does anyone know if/where you can get recon rams? I'm told they are £130ish each as new replacements!
