    I have just had new tyres fitted and 4 wheel tracking carried out. Nearside front wheel is right at the maximum for the camber and caused the last tyre to wear excessively on the edge you can see. The garage could not adjust it anywhere past the maximum setting allowed, any ideas? I don't want...

  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello, me again with the next niggly fault, only a couple of them left now...... I am assuming our 1999 9-3 should have an audiable warning for seatbelts, door ajar, lights on while IGN is off etc but ours does not work. We also do not have the audiable "tick" when the indicators are on. Where...

  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all, A few weeks ago my 1999 9-3 2.2D suddenly lost power and I could not rev over 2k which also resulted in clouds of grey smoke out the exhaust. I suspected a blocked fuel filter as it was over due for a change. I got the garage next to my work to change it and after a while running in...

    Hi The heating has stopped working in the 9-3. The climate control appears to be functioning, and the screen is doing the right things, but no heat, or cooling.. I have checked the fuses, and all appear to be good. I suspect it may be the fan that has packed up as a feeble noise is created...

    I've just purchased a 2006/56 Vector Sport Estate which has the new shape dash and new shape CD player (Black with green text on the screen).

    Hi there, I hope someone can help with this one as it does appear to be a topic that is quite common. During the last week or so I have noticed that the car has very little pull at low revs until it gets up to approx 1800 - 2000 rpm. This happens in all gears and is a lot more obvious when...

    2003 2.0T Aero. The other day after about 20mins of driving I came to a stop. Went to pull away in 1st gear and the car had no acceleration. It was like driving and old 1.0 escort!
