    Hi Chaps and Chapesses, Just wanted to offer a friendly hello and hope to be chatting with some (or indeed many) of you over the coming months. I'll soon hopefully be a first time SAAB owner (looking at getting a 9-5 Aero HOT), probably taking on a slightly worse for wear vehicle and not just...

    Hi all I'm new here just bought a 2004 9-3 Linear. Very nice car just a couple of adjustments to make it perfect. I hope. I need to look into this Tech2 stuff as I want to get AUX enabled, and I need to get a second key fob sorted just having the one worries me no end. No doubt I'll post more...

    Thought I would cover all the time zones.. I have joined the site having just picked up a Saab 93 Vector Convertible. This is my first Saab and follows on from a long Line of Mercedes Benz' such as a few S classes and E classes, several Jaguars and a couple of Range Rovers. That list comes from...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    2005. 120k Tid. 1.9 Vector 8 valve. Drives superb. Start good apart from mornings. After some well appreciated advice I tried lots of things but no joy. I have changed the fuel filter, glow plugs, temp sensor, no better. When I disconnect the temp sensor I turn on he ignition and the fan runs...

    2005 1.9 Tid Sport 9-3. Driving me nuts! Runs great once started but in the morning its fires on two then three and finally all four. I have damn near rebuilt this car but this info is relative to the question; I have read the relevant and long search subjects, I have replaced the temp sensor...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Before I change all four glow plugs can you please tell me is it normal for the glow light on the dash to only stay on for two seconds? If that is normal and the glow plugs actually heat up for longer so be it. My wife's Nissan stays on for at least five seconds. What I am asking is that are my...

    I have a 2000 93 convertible 2.0 petrol with 95,000 miles. Whilst the car starts every morning without fail I am experiencing an intermittent starting problem which is becoming more and more common - it just doesn't! This can last for 5/15/20 minutes but the other day it lasted for almost 2...

    Literally decided this morning to buy one. went to see one in Blackpool and 15 mins later I put down a deposit. The TTId sportwagon is ideal for the kids and wife but I was hankering after something stupid quick. Can't wait to be honest. Silver Grey with all the trimmings apart from Nav. FSH...

    Hi all New to Saabscene, and new to Saab'. Picked up an '06 9-3 Linear Sports estate from Simply Saab in Brizzle (UK) last week, very happy with the car, wish i'd dipped my toe many years ago. So after many years courting the other Swedish brand, what should i know? TIA Spaz

  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I am having problems with my brother Saab 9-3, 2.2 Diesel. The car has a delayed start in the morning. It will take up to 10 minutes to start (sometimes I need to support the battery) for it to keep trying to start. I know it is not a battery problem, because I tried with a new battery and...

    Hope everyone is well. I recently bought a 2005 Saab 9-3 1.9 Tid Vector Sport and really like it even though she has her problems. I've always loved Saab's and am glad i have finally got one, just hope she's good to me and doesn't cost me too much money, like most females do :)

    Mel Greig and Michael Christian the two idiots who thought it funny to call a hospital posing as relatives of a sick patient and ultimately contributed to the death of nurse Jacintha Saldanha gave an interview on sky this morning. What a pair of self serving whining shits they are. The...
