    Hello, fresh norwegian here! Asked for lokal workshop how much i had to pay for them to unlock aux option in head unit. Nothing else. Bastards dared to ask for 500 bucks for 10 min of job. So i guess ill try to pop in some old aftermarked stereo i have lying around.

    Guys, Got a bit of a strange one with Mrs [email protected]'s 2002 Cabrio. Started about a month ago with a leak from the water pump and the heater stopping working periodically. Fitted a new water pump and thought that was that. Two weeks later, clouds of steam and she had to get the nice man in the...

    Hey, My low freq horn is on its way out, it works now and again and other times I just get a high pitched squeal coming from the engine. I'm a frequent user of the horn ;) My thought on it being on its way out is, if i'm going to replace it, I may aswell upgrade it while i'm at it. So...

    Currently have a 2007 TiD auto saloon with 175bhp Hirsch upgrade. Next month I start a new job and my daily commute will be 6 miles /10 minutes each way rather than the current 60 mile / 90 minute round trip. In winter my car takes easily 8 or 9 miles to warm up, and yes, it has a DPF. So am I...

    Hi, I've had my Saab 93 Aero automatic (2004) for a year now and I really enjoy driving it. It seems that I am underneath it with spanners on a regular basis too but I enjoy working on it too. My latest job was replacing the front Anti roll bar drop links (4 nuts off, switch and then four nuts...

    We get used to upgrade our vehicles with aftermarket parts, to add performance and style. But when it comes to the moment, when something needs to be repaired or replaced, we get lost. Fortunately, 2 leading manufacturers in this area – Dorman and Replace solved this problem and created a wide...
  7. Saab Recommendations
    They aren't a saab specialist but i put my 9-3 tid in to colin brown motors (broxburn) for a dmf and clutch kit. Decent price, was offered a courtesy car but didn't need it. Job well done but it turned out there was a faulty new slave cylynder in the kit (not their fault). They offered to pick...

  9. Wash and Brush Up
    Hi guys, hoping someone might be able to help me here. A few weeks back, I had an "argument" with a wall in a car park in my red 9-3 which basically caused a big gash in the paintwork. I got a couple of quotes and after looking into it, I got a chap who had some good reviews to come and do the...

    Had my car in at a garage a week ago to check a knocking noise from the suspension and was told there was nothing wrong :rolleyes: Obviously hopeless so a mate of mine had a look and told me the strut mount was gubbed. Is it a difficult job? Is it worth trying myself? How much should I expect...

    The engine management light came on and I'm being told there is an intermittent fault with the air mass sensor... is worth a clean or does the AMS fail??
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All, My 2-0 ltr 9-5 has 'lost' its turbo; am being quoted approx £1100-00 to replace ( with a new one); Have looked on here and see there are recon ones available so rather than scrap the car ( x reg 2-0 ltr SE auto) , if i can fix it up for less than a 'monkey' I think its worth saving it...

    Perfect weather here in the South for removing those wheel liners and if your car is more than 8 years old and you intend to keep it, then it might be worth checking for the start of corrosion around the rear wheel arches. If you can see some bubbling under the black trim, then best not delay...

    Hello, I have recently changed rear brake discs and pads on my 95 Sportwagon (55 plate 1.9 TiD 120 bhp). I used the "kit" option from an online retailer which was original GM discs and pads. Old discs were in bad condition, but the pads still had 2/3rds of their life on them left. Friend at...

    hi all, I'm going to fit a full set of Koni's with lowering springs to my 9-3 vert. I've got new top mounts and a teering rack clamp and brace. I'm confident I can fit the brace with no worries, however, I worry that I won't be able to fit the springs and dampers. Is it a straightforward job...
