    Hi all, I am new to this forum and hoping someone can help me out. I have recently purchased a 2002 9-3 Aero convertible. The drivers electric window has developed a fault. The window goes up but will not go down. I can push the window down and when I press the button it still goes back up fine...

    As in the title guys, window wiper mechanism has sheared in two at the bracket. Tried to replace with scrappy part but that snapped too as I was taking it off the donor car! Would seem these are made of cheese... My attempt at a bodge repair with a bit of shaped aluminium hasn't held up  Does...

    Hi all, having diagnosed the rear door lock mechanism as my problem that triggers the alarm (I understand the switch is built into the unit). Has anyone had experience in attempting to fix this. I'd rather not have to disassemble twice so might end up buying a replacement lock unit as I'm...

    I recently put a small filing cabinet on the folded down back seat. As I as raising the roof it became jammed on top of the cabinet. Since then the mechanism timing seems to be out. 1) The small tonneau catches will not lock down and have now sheared off. 2) When the large tonneau cover...

    I have a 1999 9-3 se 2ltr turbo. It's developed a minor problem when the roof goes down. Basically when I slide the roof button back thevery first stage of the process fails to work. By this I mean that the section with the rear window in it fails to fold up. If I manually lift it up with my...

    I just purchased this vehicle and noticed the steering wheel does not lock no matter how far or little I turn it with the key out of the ignition. Is this normal or do I have a problem that needs to go to the shop.

    I've got a problem with my driver's side door lock and before I take it anywhere I thought I'd ask you all. 1. The key will not lock/unlock the door whether the door is open or closed. 2. If the door is open then I can not push down the lock on the inside - ie: I get out and want to lock it by...

    I've noticed this problem cropping up fairly regular across the forums. Does anyone know which part actually breaks? Or bends? Is there any simple preventative maintenance that can stop this happening in the future? Just simple stuff like greasing the mechanism?

    Hi, On my 9-3 SW the ski hatch in the rear seat, or load-through hatch as it is called in the manual, does not open easily. Using the handle at the front does not pull down the latch enough to release it, and I end up having to use a screwdriver from the rear to force the latch down. My guess...

    I get an occasional creak noise in what appears to be seatbelt mechanism. I got the plastic covers off, but 'cos I was worried about messing the mechanism I didn't do anything... Anybody got any solutions to this, since I have surfed the various Saab forums and it appears to be a common...

    The indicator cancel seems to be a mite erratic on the Estate lately, when turning left. Particularly with those smaller wheel rotations. Sometimes it works well, other times the indicator needs canceling by the driver. It isn't an XJ40 and it is starting to bug me, so I wonder if there is a...

    Hi guys This is just for info and is intriguing. The driver's side rear door window glass dropped into the door recently on my 54k 01 9-3. Thankfully it didn't smash as there's polystyrene in the bottom of the rear doors! Turned out that a itty-bitty bit of plastic had snapped and I had to have...

    Not quite the same subject as the recent post. My 2005 estate has a rattle from the tailgate, which is clearly due to the fact that it isn't fully closed. So I investigated, and found that the 2-wire connector to the catch (in the tailgate) wasn't connected. Feeling pleased with myself, I...

    Coincidence or not? This week, Autocar's report on their 9-3 Sportwagon, states that one side of the rear seat locking mechanism has failed. Last Saturday, one broke on our 9-5 Estate. Is this common? I've no idea if the parts are shared on the two platforms, but it's yet another trip to the...

    When I remote lock the doors, I get a juddering noise from the filler cap lock. It seems to lock it, but the noise is loud and annoying. Any ideas?
