  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello, In my 1997 9000 auto, the auto gear selector lever was removable. There was a small screw at the base of the rubber-like handle, which when loosened, enabled the gear selector stick to be pulled off. I have just acquired a 2007 9-5 Dame auto but I can see no evidence that the...

    I have a 9 5 auto 2004. In the centre console at base of gear lever there is a ribbed plastic slider that covers the hole for the gear lever movement. That slider has broken off rear of the gear lever, giving view into the workings and unatractive. I did cut a piece of rubber sheet to size...
  5. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Have a sloppy Auto Transmission Gear selector lever where the play is greater in N as in position D. So, according to the WIS I can adjust the selector lever cable by "Lifting up the Cable Adjustment Clasp" that connects in the Engine Bay just above the mid point of the Gearbox and underneath...

    As topic states, went away for the weekend and all was fine, got into my car on return and for some reason the gear lever does not spring back to center!! I have taken the gaiter off but can't see anything wrong, after quick search I see it's a common fault with the selector on the box, can...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi there! I followed the howto on from GirlySaabFan to rebuild the rear brake calipers. I got to the point of getting out the handbrake lever. It won't. According to the howto, after removing the handbrake adjustment screw, the lever should come out. On my 1994 CSE, calipers have...

    further to my carbon effect overlay question (the 3m stuff looks the dogs) can anybody advise on how to remove the silver gearchange surround on my 57 plate facelift 9-3 ? thanks in advance
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Huzzah, maybe I'm being a bit of a plank, but the gearshift on my 9-3 VS seems to be still across the gate. Shifting up and down the gate is buttery smooth (i.e. 1-2, 3-4 and 5-6) but going 2-3 or 4-5 needs a definite yank, and there's no centering spring. Is this normal?

    The gear lever top on my 2006 9.3 TiD 150 has started to come adrift - it's loose all round apart from the back edge. Is it just glued on? Do I just pull it off and reglue it, perhaps with Bostick or something else? Thanks, Iain
  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello all back again after a breif period without a Saab. I have now gone old school and got a 1997 900 2.0L N/A. Basicaly the gear change is shocking. I'm already to do the flush and refill with MTF 0063, as this apparently performs miracles ( I hope so). I checked the alignment today with the...

    Hi all just trying to rectify a sticky gearstick.It wont return to the central position ,i.e. left/right. I think I've traced the problem to the turret mechanism on the gearbox that the cables attach to. Problem is I think it needs to come off to get some lube around it but can I just unbolt...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Does anyone know how to fix this. It was getting hard to pull then, as I was pulling to release the bonnet, the whole assembly came off the side. :mad:

    I want to remove my leather automatic gear leaver and have taken off the surround at the base but I cannot work out how to remove it. Any one done it before? Thanks Rob
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    As usual whenever I undertake what seems to be a fairly simple task I think I can do myself I seem to create an unforseen problem. Guess I should leave well alone. Anyway I've just fitted a new gear lever knob after having to cut the old one off and now I'm unable to select fifth gear and when...
  20. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My seat height adjust lever appears to be either broken or loose .. after unclipping the plastic centre disc, a bolt is revealed that seems to require a star shaped driver to remove/tighten. Does anyone know if this is a saab specific tool (if so what is it) or if not, what it is and where I...
