  1. New Saab 9-5 (2010 - on)
    I found a long standing leak in my 2.8 ltr. The leak is at the seal at the crankshaft seal. Seems bizarre that antifreeze leaks out of crankshaft. Anyone done it themselves?

    Hello, I have a slight problem, a tiny little coolant leak. In the attached picture it's from the left pipe, it's leaking from the connecting bit, I was wondering if I got new pipes would it solve the problem as it doesn't seem split? Also is there any good sites to get new pipes from.

    I have a 99 9-3 Se 4 door salon. I'm Leaking power steering fluid enough that i have to fill it about once a week. I think it's leaking from the power steering cooling line? If this is the case what labor does this involve to replace it myself? How hard of a job is it to do? Thank you.

    I have recently got myself a 2007 9-3 convertible and love it - even as our main car with a 11 month old. Today I got in the car after some torrential rain and found that it's leaking from my a pillars at the top round the window side window. I don't get how the seals work though as with the...

    when I recently bought my 9 3 vector, the only problem is apparently coolant leaking into the transmission fluid.... the guy said he drains off some of the transmission fluid - replaces with new, and its then good to go for another 2000 miles. that was his workaround, otherwise a 3k radiator...

    Just after some help. One of the pipes on my 2004 convertable is leaking at the brass connector. I have attached a photo. Anyone she'd any light on what number this connector is. I'm told that the ones commonly failing are 65 and 66? I have found a company, down south that provides improved...
  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I am hoping someone will let me know why my steering rack replacements are failing after about 1 year? This is getting very expensive and I am tempted to get rid of it. Surely someone has had the same problem. The previous owner had two fitted within 3 years and I had mine fitted last year...

    Leaking roof + tuninig question. Hi everyone, I have a problem with my 93 cabrio roof, and need to ask You what to do. During the rain, when I slide my hand behind the roof lining, the bottom layer of the Sonnenland material becomes wet. The exterior look doesn't appear to be as bad.. I tried...

    Can anyone tell me what the small tube is for on the bottom of the fuel filter (see photo) and why it should be dripping fuel when the engine is running? (57 plate 93 Tid 150). The filter was installed last September. Many thanks, Paul.

    Aero 2.0t 04 I have had a leaking water pump for a little while topping it up perhaps every other day ...... I am having to get it sorted and I know its likely to be yet another £200+ for my local garage to do it, it really isnt something I could possible do myself. Would it be better to...

    Hi all I had my DPF removed and EGR forced closed in software (and blanked), and since then my boost gauge has been only really going to half way unless I really boot it to the floor. There was a suggestion that a reduction in the back pressure may have reduced the pressure shown, but I think...

    Hi, I went to put some water in the windscreen washers and noticed there seemed to be a leak from the Power Steering Fluid reservoir, it seemed to be all over the screw top and had dripped onto the pipes below etc. I cleaned it all up and the wife went to town and back today, when I got home...

    My aero is leaking coolant all over the drive after long journeys, dismantled the front end to find it dripping from the radiator on the drivers side edge where the fins meet the plastic. Is it likely to be anything other than replacing the rad? The cars done 103k so im not hugely fussed if the...
