  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hey, I am embarking on a full overhaul of both front and rear suspension after one of my front springs broke. I have an '04 vector with sports suspension, which I have decided is too harsh a ride, so I will not be replacing with originals. Eibach Pro kit, Koni FSD's, Powerflex Bushes...

  9. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    This is a great site, and I am a member of a fair few. Another problem with my 1990 16v Conv, (thanks to all regarding the lights by the way). Driving along motorway, doing roughly 60-70mph, manouvered (?) a long bend and for no reason the wheels seemed out of control, and the steering wheel...

    My car (1.9 TiD, 150, sportwagon) is almost due a major service and has just over 70,000 on the clock. Speaking to a friend who is a mechanic he suggested that the upcoming service really is a MAJOR service - new timing belt being just one of the things due for replacement. Is this true, can...

    This afternoon, the car told me the the battery had stopped charging. Only two miles from home I kept going. By the time I got home it told me that the traction control had failed and the anti-lock brakes had failed. Then the power steering packed up - for real - it didn't tell me about that...
