    So got the call I was dreading from the assessors - my Aero has been given the thumbs down to repairs and I have been offered £1900 payout. Gutted, accident was a rear-end shunt to the nearside rear and a plain case of the liable driver not paying attention (my car was stationary at the...

  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi Guys, See if anyone can call this one. Another point on me car that needs sorted. When pressing the washer button on the stalk, to try and clean the rear window, the wiper moves ok, but no fluid comes out. There doesn't seem to be any "motor" noise as expected when pressing the button, but it...

    Looking at the budget today, not good news but well buried so unlikely to make the headlines. Maybe I'm just being pessimistic. I guess a lot of our SAABs are in band F (pre 2006, >186gm/Km CO2) and we pay £210 VED. That all changes for 2009 when we wil enjoy £400+ VED. :( I suppose the...

  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Here’s another thing. A couple of months ago I had to park facing slightly uphill in a car park when very low on fuel. When the car started but immediately cut out, I thought for a moment and then let the car run back to the level, and everything was OK. A couple of days ago the same thing...

  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    While washing the car (which I do sometimes), noticed a rather nasty mark on the near side front wing about the size of a 50p piece. Looked a bit like the mark you would get by being too close with a power wash on the jet setting. Wasn't really bad but annoying and not sure how it got there...
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    the coolant temp sensor (inlet manifold) as suggested in earlier posting. The car still has problem when cranking at normal temp, takes a while to start. I notice that the rev counter pointer is still when cranking...is this supposed to move? Also, the exhaust inner surface used to be slightly...

  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I finally sorted my washers! Believe me, it has been very alarming the last couple of weeks without them. I got a new 2nd hand column switch from Neo Bros (good diagnosis someone btw.. Derek I think?), and that fixed it. Oh, and I had to replace all the washer valves. And unblock all the...
