    I bought a 2003 9-3 with a 2.0Turbo gas 4 door sedan. It has a very loud lifter knock. I have removed the valve cover and was wondering if i could get some direction as to finding where my trouble spot is? There is no visible broken or loose parts. Thank you in advance.

    Hello all, got a weird noise coming from under the bonnet when accelerating. It doesn't do it under gentle acceleration, only when the go pedal is pushed down a bit further. Sounds like a sort of deep, moaning/groaning noise, like a pump is being put under heavy load or a hose is...

    Our 9-3 Convertible has developed a loud noise from dashboard, which seems to go when the plastics warm up. It is like a loud rattle/knocking sound from around the SID area, it stops when I wedge a screen scraper between dash & windscreen by the SID!. But I cannot pinpoint the cause. I guess...
