  1. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    A couple of weeks back on a trip up to Liverpool I accidentally filled my 9-3 estate up with Shell V-power diesel rather than standard diesel. A bit annoyed with spending ten quid more than I needed to on a tank of fuel I carried on my way. Ever since doing this my car has been returning on...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, I'm only a partial newbie - I've just returned to the fold and back to a Saab (forgive me, I strayed and bought an Alfa). Got a rather clean 2006 1.9TiD 150 Vector Sportwagon. Everything is lovely but as so many others have mentioned, the basic 4-speaker stereo ("Premium 70" - ha ha...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all Thought i'd add a post about my quest for better economy from my 2005 tid. When i started i was getting 38.9mpg, which i thought was not good. With 130K on the clock i figured a refresh of a few things may help, so far the story goes: starting mpg - 38.9 stage 1 (clean MAP sensor...
  4. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Thought I'd share this. I just remembered to modify my 85K mile 95 Aero as I had my old one. I am only a size 10 shoe but my foot catches on the clutch pedal and makes really quick responses difficult, if one's foot is on the rest. How does Sven in his snow boots manage? Ergonomic, gimme a...

  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, I have a LPT MY2000 T5. I'm in need of replacing the rear shocks and need an investigation on the top mounts on the front struts owing to noise. Most likely that they need replacing and possibly also the front shocks. Doesn't seem to want to go in a straight line on m/ways and sometimes...
  7. Saab News
    It was mentioned in comments, but I think the improved image needs to be posted here on the front page for all to see. One design element in the Saab 9-4x concept that many people are having trouble with, me included, is the way the grille extends upwards and interrupts the front line of the...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    For a while now my car(96 2.0lpt)has suffered from clutch judder but no sign of slip. After reading some previous posts it seems that the problem MIGHT be worn engine mounts. At the weekend I changed the upper engine stabiliser bushes, not too bad a job as long as you have a press handy(not...
  9. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I'm not pleased with the factory 6 speaker audio system of MY00 Viggen. While keeping the standard head unit there, I think of replacing the stock speakers with Infinity or Alpines with an addition of Infinity Basslink-x active sub woofer in the boot. Questions; 1. Since there is no factory...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Thanks for the answers re sunroof. I've read the articles and FAQ about AS2 and AS3 but none of the cars I have looked at have AS3. The sound from AS2 seems OK on the car I tried, I think it could be a bit louder but biggest issue is the balance seems difficult. I just couldn't get the fader...
  11. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    I have a Dell Dimension XPS T500 PC, 5 years old, 128mb RAM, 3dfx Voodoo 16mb graphics card, Pentium 3 500, 17" CRT monitor, CD-RW, DVD ROM drive and 13Gb hard disk. All I use it for is internet, email, chatboards, and the occasional letter. I have broadband, but since I upgraded from Windows...
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I just replaced the plugs in my new CSE with the correct NGK ones, gapped properly. The Bosch ones that the vendor's garage put in were gapped totally wrong! Not sure what to do with the plugs I took out, since they cost £120 Idle is much smoother now (also thanks to a bottle of...

  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I understand the safety of the 9-5 to be superior to the last of the 9000s. There is considerable engineering that cannot be gauged by panel thickness and body finish, but I cannot ignore the difference in door weight, panel feel and body finish in my 9000 Griffin compared to my 9-5 SE...
