  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    So took the motor for an MOT yesterday, failed on Brakes so new Discs and Pads all round on the way, pretty good considering mileage of 219k - tester said everything else was good. Anyhow, 2nd car started not to engage. Now I've already noticed a very worn linkage and worn gear lever as well...

    When my 2005 9-3 1.9 TiD Vector is ambling along at say 30mph there is an odd buzzing coming from somewhere. Go a little faster and it stops! I don't want to be doing 40 in a 30mph zone tho to stop it buzzing! I cannot pin it down as its tricky when locate when car is moving. Any ideas what...

    It needs a 20mm hole (Or there abouts) & I'd say 3/4" room at the back ..... I may do away with that rubbery coin thingi in the armrest storage area ..... I take it the rear of the same area is taken up with ventilation tubing ???? Drilling in to the "Smart Slot" might be a go-er of a idea...

    Hows things everyone i'm posting this on behalf of my father he has a 2004 vector auto that has started to give problems. When he turns the key to start the engine the car hesitates for 2 to 3 seconds before turning over and starting but sometimes it will not start or even try to turn over at...

    Here we go again - just deciding what to do now, I've still got the 2 same problems but not sure if they're related. 1) I've never really got rid of my light steering vibration at speeds, I've had wheels balanced 3 times by same garage and they have balanced and road forced as accurately as...

    Gents, Apologies if I've mis-posted. I'd be grateful for ideas about my 9-5's problem. I'm not an expert and won't be looking to self-fix, but I'm keen to get some ideas to avoid a protracted diagnosis, and I'm very anxious to find a Saab technician near Chesham (or High Wycombe, Watford...

    Hi There. My 9-3 has developed an annoying habit of stalling when hot. Heres the scenario. Engine fires up straight away. No hesitation. If I drive for 20 mins and then come to a set of traffic lights for example sometimes the revs fall well below 1000 and it either idles very lumpy or stalls...

    I dont understand this, I only had new disc & pads fitted Oct last year, brakes have been great but over the last few weeks I've really noticed a fair bit of vibration when braking fairly hard from high speeds. I cant believe it'll be warped discs, the only things I've done over the last few...

    Hi all, Only just bought this car (2007 saab 9-3 1.8T convertible). It's been standing for about 4 months, but don't know whether that's relevant. I've changed the oil and filters. It makes this noise when cold but it goes away totally when warm. Any ideas? I'd really appreciate any opinions and...

    I have noticed that the leatherette (or whatever its called) side bolster trim has come unclipped on both front seats wher it folds down the side of the centre console. It feels like there is a long clip that runs along the material. I have folded this back underneath, but after a couple of time...

    Anyone got any ideas as to what a ticking may be from behind the dash, below the speedo area??? Seems to be regular, not random, constant low ticking Its reminiscent of a clock ticking but as the displays are digital, it can't be that! Just wondering what mechanically might be causing this. :(
