    Hello All A Newbie to this forum but not to Saabs. Over the years I've had a 99, a 900 Turbo & a 9000 both in 2.0 turbo & 2.3 High pressure Turbo. My current car is a 2008 93-TTid Vector Sportwagon. I have had it about 4 years. It had 175,000 on the clock when I bought it, & now it has over...

    As I discovered today when my 2009 1.9 TID passed the MOT the limits are dropping by a factor of six in some cases from May this year. My understanding was the new limit would be 1.5m currently 3.0m WRONG the new limits will be the plate value as shown on the passenger side door pillar label...

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Well for the sixth year running, the Saabillac passed the MoT, no advisories. I take it to the same garage every year and he does a proper MoT, not some half arsed job with a quick word in one ear and some palm greasing. My car still has a Dpf and once again, recorded a 'zero' reading on the...

    Hi all, My 2003 93 is due its MOT. My SID is constantly showing a left brakelight failure even though all rear lights are working fine. Question is will this be an MOT failure. Does the SID display even have to work? Davycc

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Well, as the title indicates, MOT. Put my Saabillac through yesterday one calender month early and it sailed through, no advisories and once again, zero emissions on the smoke test, DPF/EGR all intact. So, a full 13 months on the MOT.... They were very impressed with my stainless braided brake...
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I took my '07 9-3 SE In for an MOT today and it failed on one count - the power steering fluid leaks. Given that I've been topping it up with CHF for a while I didn't realise it was a failable offence... Anyway, it's also due a 120000 mile service. Am I going to end up shelling out more cash...

  14. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    I've got a 1993 900 and the ABS light is telling me that there is a problem. I have checked the static resistance of the sensors and they are all within tolerance. Next guess was the ABS pressure reservoir but I've swapped that with one from a working car and the light is still lit. Is there...
  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My 2007 9-3 Anniversary 1.9 TiD saloon failed the MoT today. Two things, a broken rear NS spring and a front anti-roll bar drop link. MoT garage have estimated 'about 200 quid mate', but will be confirming their price tomorrow. I checked with GSF's website, and a spring is £48 and a drop link...
