    On cold start after a couple of minutes running there is a knocking coming from gearbox side of engine, this disappears when the clutch is depressed and when the engine runs for 5 minutes or so. I have replaced clutch, flywheel and starter motor but the noise is still there, could it be the...

  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have a 99 9-3 SE 4 door hatchback. When the car is idling and also when driving it, it's making a knocking noise. It seems to be coming from one of the pulleys that the serpentine belt is on. I have inspected the belt and I can't see any breaks or cracks in it and I tried to move the pulley...

    Hi I've got the most annoying knocking coming from the rear of my Saab. Replaced banana arms worm bush's but still this very annoying knocking is evading me. Any ideas.

    My wife has been complaining of an intermittent knock for a while (9-3 aero 2.0T). Whilst trying to replicate the fault I noticed a clunking on full lock when reversing. In the past I would have said springs. However, the springs were replaced about 6 months ago, along with the drop links and...

    I have been having uneven tyre wear on the outer edges of both front wheels. I also have a bit of play in the front wheel (left). I have just replaced the outer tie rods. the local garage says he's checked all suspension related components with no probs. I always get a knocking noise when I turn...

    Ok, I know I have posted about this before but I really need advice on this. There is a knocking from the rear of the car when going over bumpy roads, mostly at ow speeds 20-30mph. I have had it in the garage 3 times with myself and a mechanic friend trying everything and anything to source...

    Hi guys, Our Saab 9-3 developed a knocking noise when the steering wheel is turning when the car is stationary. Originally we thought it was from the Strut Mount Bearings so both were replaced however this didn't resolve the issue. I realised today the knocking is coming from the Power Steering...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Well, this is the story so far...... I replaced the rear arb drop links. The bushes were a problem as I had 19mm which I thought were correct after extensive research. Turns out they are actually 18mm! I have rotated them 180 degrees for now and the 18mm are on order. This has not resolved the...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    As the title suggests, my suspension is making some annoying noises. First off, I get a creaking when I go over speed bumps, now I'm led to believe this is the anti-roll bar bushes needing lubricated. Is there any truth to this? Secondly, I am getting a lot of knocking that sounds similar...
  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, I'm replacing some rear suspension components, arb bushes, arb drop links and upper control (banana) arms. I have had difficulty locating the drop links so ended up on a Vauxhall parts site. (Actually cheaper). Could someone be so kind to confirm I'm buying the correct parts? My car is...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, I have been strugling with an issue of pinging / knocking primarily on cylinder 1 and a bit on 2 on my MY2001 9-5 2.3 LPT Aut when the engine is completely warm (after about 10 km drive). I now also seem to be getting worse fuel economy (not sure if related)...? The car has 180.000km on...

    I have a Saab 93 on UK 11 plate, 55K on clock recently it has developed a knocking noise when breaking from speed and going around a roundabout, strange as it seems that's what triggers it. It is only evident after travlleing a fair distance at speed, 50 miles plus, occasionally at other...

    I searched and found nothing related to my specific situation on this, so some help would be appreciated. My '08 9-3 2.0t front driver side has developed a knock, it started this morning and got worse with my commute. It happens during light acceleration, light braking and when maintaining...
  17. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have been unlucky and went over a pot hole and immediately heard a 'boing' after only having the car 4 days. Turned out I broke a spring. I have had it replaced along with the drop link which had some play in it. It is now giving a knock after driving over every little bump or imperfection in...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My 1994 9000 CSE has started knocking quite badly when accelerating hard above about 2000 rpm. It loses power and the revs fall away. Once I take my foot off the accelerator things go back to normal and the car drives ok. I had a stuck wastegate valve a few months ago which was freed by a...

    I have a knocking coming from the front suspension on my 93 150 TDI 2005 plate. Someone told me it would be the anti roll bar bushes, does anyone know if I can replace them with Poly bushes (Powerflex) and do I require any brackets to fit the outer diameter. Would you know if this is a job for...
