  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi folks, as my topic suggests, my 2.2 2004 model is sounding sweet at the moment for some reason. i've had it for 5 years and it's been ok, but now it seems almost to smooth. to be honest i still have an irritating rattle from driver side front and a very occassional knocking from the opposite...
  2. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    (albeit registered for a year!) I hope this is the right sub-forum for my particular car! I have a 2001 SAAB 9-3 SE which has been lovely. However, the front nearside (passenger) wheel of it has fallen victim to the many pot-holes that are currently present on the Buckinghamshire roads and...
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    It's a ng900 my1998 done 107k 2l turbo manual. Just been in to have thermostat changed though I'm certain this is unrelated. As I drove away in first I got a loud whirring screeching noise that sounded like gear box trouble. As I got home the engine was up to temp. Got a similar noise but...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Well that's it i'm done...spent most of the afternoon at PCthugs trying to solve my cars problem. It shows the P1901 code (a well used code on this site) which really could be anything (particle sensor/egr/etc etc). The engine light was removed and the car was great until 4 miles up the road and...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Yes yes yes, I'm a chav. Yes, I'm going to have blue lighting strips on the bottom of my 9-5. Well, I'm not, but still. I have a childish desire for the noise of a turbo blowing off through the dump valve, instead of it all recirculating. Apparently if I just put an atmospheric one on, it will...
  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My tidy 1993 2.3 cse failed her MoT test this week. The refusal sheet is the longest Ive ever been issued with - but contains the usual suspects - handbrake ( new cables needed ), rear ARB bushes, etc... BUT - and I quote..."nearside headlamp not in good working order adversely affecting beam...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Wife just called to say that wipers and indicators stopped working whilst driving along the motorway on the way to the in-laws. The car is a 03 Vector 2.2 TiD. She has already dropped it off at a garage (non-saab) so hopefully it will be something simple that a non Saab garage can fix. If they...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I've got a 9000 Aero which has been a lovely reliable and never had any problems to speak of. But now I'm a little worried. Got some funny noises from the gearbox (a weak point on these cars, I understand). A little background, my gearbox has been sweet as a nut. Not a single problem usually...
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    1996 9000 CSE had the car serviced (FSH) and driving home the exhaust tail pipe dropped off. Got a new one and driving home the turbo oil pipe feed went kaput. and the middle-box blew :mad: This has now been fixed but the blooming alarm/immobiliser (I haven't used this for years as it became...

    Hey folks, i'm pleased to say that after a short break of a few years i have gone swedish again! Just got hold of a super 9-3 SS Aero for a song. Only issue, i cannot get it until next Friday! Boo! Only challenge now is... the wifey will want to get her mits on it. Will post piccies on Friday....
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, I'm about to replace the disc and pads front and rear on my '98 9-5 2.3T saloon. My last MOT suggested replacing springs too, I quite fancy upgrading to a slightly stiffer suspension set up anyway, Does anyone know a good combination of products? Thanks, been looking around but it'd help...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Good afternoon ladies and gentleman, boys and girls. Firstly, let me say what a superb forum you have here. I've spent a couple of days dipping in and out of many topics, before being brave enough to make my first post :eek: My wife and I looked at a Saab last weekend, that we both really...
  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello everyone. I am new on her and have just bought a gorgeous Saab 9-3 2.0 SE, 1998 in dark blue with grey velour. I will post some pics soon, but will be scanning the forums as I always service my cars myself and have never had a Saab before, but have often nearly bought one. Yes I would...
  14. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I am looking at these as a poss' purchase very shortly. I know little about the goods and bads on them. Can the current owners of cars say from 1993 on in this marque give their opinions as a guide to me? Thanks, Keith.
