    2007 Saab 9.5 Vector Sport TID I.9 Anyone know if this 'fault light' showing on the dashboard would result in a MOT (UK) failure and if it would be classed as either unsafe or dangerous on the road. Thanks. :confused:
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, I have a 2006 9-5 with Xenon headlights fitted. The issue I have is that the auto levelling on the headlights defaults to the lowest position, after some reading I assumed this was the CoG sensors. After jacking up the car I have not been able to able to find the sensors! I have looked...

    Hi, I have a 2005 9-5 Aero with Xenons. When i drive and gently accelerate i am getting a groaning type noise. I have finally tracked this down to the headlamp auto leveling:eek: Has anyone experienced this before and have they been able to cure it? Many thanks
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've got the dreaded warning lamp on and both lamps going to low position as they emit a juddering sound. Does anyone know their way round the system? Am I right in assuming the only inputs are the front and rear "load angle sensors"? I've already assumed because both lamps do the same thing...

    My headlight self levelling is not working on my 95 Vector Sport Estate because the plastic arm at the front has snapped, can I purchase that as a spare or what do I need to buy?

    Hi, My headlight levelling sensor(s) are playing up. Whereabouts are they, and how do I get at them - is it straightforward to clean them up? Thanks in advance.

    Hi, I have a 51 plate vector Tid estate and was interested to know how I can tell if I have self levelling suspension? Thanks, Craig.

    Thought I'd drop a few words about how effective I've found the self levelling suspension on my 95Aero Turbo Edition Estate..... Basically, when loaded with my caravan, with 75kg ball weight with full boot and 2 passengers...car remained perfectly level - almost exactly the same as running...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi guys Having a slight hiccup with my xenon headlamps. They do their up and down start up sequence and are fine for a whiel apart from a slight flicker from one lamp (that dissappears when warm) but after a few minutes driving the fault light comes on and they seem to point up. Touch the...

    Hi chaps As you might know my car is up for sale. It is a 1999 9-5 SE and has self levelling suspension. I have someon who seems intersted but has asked if it can be lowered with this suspension? I suspect it can as recently I've seen an Aero Estate advertised with self levelling suspension...

  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, I am new to saab as I only purchased my car in July. So I am still learning. I have a problem and any help would be greatly appreciated. I had my car M.O.T'd on saturday and it passed no problems. That evening I turned my lights (xenons) on and the headlights seemed fine. However as...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've had my M05 9-5 Vector Sport Estate 2.2 TiD for three years and absolutely love it. I've got two problems with the headlights though:- <blockquote>1) The Xenons flicker all the time when turned off</blockquote> <blockquote>2) Auto levelling malfunctioning with warning light on dash...
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, my first post and apologies if this has been mentioned in the past, but I did search but got no hits on this. I have a 2003 93 Aero, which has been faultless up to now... broken coil springs, both of them on the near side, lots of electrical problems, AC problems, brake and traking...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    After some months of intermittent alerts, the self leveling warning light for my headlights has come on permanently. In the past I could clear it by just switching off and on again but now this doesn't work. What puzzles me though is that the lights still go through their raising and lowering...
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    YES - you guessed! ...Problems with the suspension. I have self levelling suspension which works great in one respect- when you fill the car it pushed down in the middle and the X shape suspension pushes up the suspension on the shocks on the outside so it levels the car out with the front...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have seen in some other threads reference to the self levelling suspension available on the 9-5. Can someone please clarify if it can be put into the saloon models and whether its any real benefit on a low mileage car. I have seen the kit available from 2 Stroke and am considering it at...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Are there any decent options for this on the 9k? I've got an Abbott/Koni setup at the moment so dont want to change the shocks. I've seen little airbag things that you put inside the spring coils but they look a bit dodgy and as far as I can see you need to attach a footpump to them/manually...

    Question first, background later....... The Question Does anyone have any experience with the Saab self levelling rear suspension, particularly on the sports chassis. ?. I'm thinking of getting it, but wondering if stiffer springs would be sufficient, & what the effects on ESP would be...
