  1. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My 9K packed up! Here's the deal. 1995 CSE, 216,500 miles. Running adequately until this morning when I went to start it and noticed something was off. The usual series of clicks, whirs, clunks and growls was missing a piece. I'm no longer hearing the fuel pump. I've searched the forums...
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have been having the traditional 3.0 TiD hesitation problems on and off for a couple of years - it seemd to go away in Oct and return about June for some reason. Anyway after a while of this and contacting garages and not exactly getting a warm feeling from them I got in touch with APL and...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Sooooooooooo, I was recently lucky enough to get a radio / 6 disc CD changer as a spare :D ( this is the unit for the new shape dash. It's a generic GM unit). I checked it works and then thought about what I would do with it. One thing that bugged me (and everyone else I think) was that GM in...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Trying to fit boot amp today- wired to red/grey wire in boot as per instructions elsewhere on the forum. It worked fine then went dead. Now I can't get the key out and nothing happens when I turn ignition on. Checked all fuses ok. Any ideas? Also I can't get the key out!
  5. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I've bought my second hand Saab about six months ago. I had to repair it eight times in six months, the gravity of the situation varying from annoying (and expensive) to desperate (and very expensive). I've spoken about some of these experiences here and in other threads. Bottom line: I've spent...
  6. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Hello from a newcomer (although not a newcomer to Saab as I owned a 9000CS a few years ago). Could someone please comment on the following:- Went to my local Saab dealer yesterday and saw a 9-3 1.9TiD Linear Sport with an advertised windscreen price of 7995. After some discussion about...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Yes, I have finally gone and done it. I 'bit the bullet' have bought an '02 Aero. I can't get over how quick this thing goes, and it is completely standard. Sports seats, metal dash, sunroof, HK stereo. Top condition, tight and unmarked. SWMBO is rather happy as she gets the Estate. Rather...
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I removed the glovebox on my MY08 9-3 Conv to install some electronics. I was pleased with how it came out and went back together - just 5 screws and it drops out. However, shortly after smugly tightening the last screw I realised that the button no longer opens it! Any ideas what I've done or...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I ended up buying this car as I couldn't find an Aero in my budget. It looked the part and was pretty well specced. Most of all it was a bargain price. After a few search's on here I now realise its pretty much a detuned Aero. Can you knowledgable people confirm or deny that it has: 1...
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Right where to start really i was on the motorway boosting abit then i had a boost in power just before the inside of the screen misted up on the passanger side so i pulled over. when i got out there was no water in the header tank an it looked to be coming out of a sort of drainage vent under...
  11. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    It all started so innocently - I have a 55 plate 9-3 Aero Sportwagon - and the lease is up next year - and then there was this Mondeo Titanium parked next to it at work - and it looked very nice. Then last week I saw someone loading stuff into the back of another Mondeo and I asked him what he...
  12. Saab 95 & 96 Two stroke and V4 (1949 - 1980)
    Hi All New here! I have just aquired a 1976 96 V4 thing and have a few questions, it's not MOT'd at the moment however it has had some restoration work done on it. What sort of MPG should I expect? What improvements can be made? Has anybody fitted a TDi diesel engine and will I need to fit...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Never looked twice at a Saab until a mate of mine received an Aero as a coursity car and took me down the M6 and M1 to London in it. At the time I was looking to upgrade from my Honda Accord VTEC Sport so started doing a bit of web searching and participated in a few viewings. Finally came...
  14. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    I looked at the distributor and thought, "that looks a bit scruffy, I'll just give it a wipe to take the dust off". So I disconnected the leads, took it off and did that. I made a note of which way round it was and which leads went into where. Connected everything up and...noticed that the...
  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Just wanted to post up to say thanks for all the advice and information I've received from these boards over the past couple of years. I have throughly enjoyed my Saab 9-3 SE and It has been one of the most reliable cars I've ever had the pleasure of owning. :D Only sold it due to the hike...
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    3 months ago I bought a year old Aero with 4500 on the clock.Due to its age it was due its first service and I asked the Saab dealer to include this in the deal .This was duly agreed.Now,2-3 months on,the 'service now due'has appeared on the display. Is it possible to tell if the car was...
