  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello all, As the topic title says, I'm having a CEL issue with my 93 diesel. Admittedly I've had quite a few problems with the damn thing and I'm regretting ever buying it :mad: . I guess it's my fault for not doing more research on what could go wrong with them and coming from a 95 2.0LPT...

    Afternoon... I have a MY01 2.0t SE. It has the handsfree kit built in, including shark fin ariel etc. I've read existing posts on the matter and have a couple of questions ... Why does nobody seem to use the existing microphone and ariel when fitting handsfree kits? - Do they not...

  6. Saabscene: Performance
    Hello, Hopefully this is in the correct section, but I thought I'd post a thread so that you could all follow the progress of Jet! Jet's a black 2.0 16v t SE, with 100k miles and now under new ownership! I'll get some pics sorted out so you can all see her as she is at the moment, and will...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Having been ditched a raw deal in obtaiting the OEM pads at 829.00 rand for the front axle and not being able to source any , I stumbled upon the equivalent Ferodo front brake pads. These are not the DS type, which is apparently a new product into this part of the world, but the normal standard...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi I'm still looking for a MY01 sales brochure (when airflow kit was standard on the SE). If anyone knows of one available (or could scan theirs for a fee), please could you pm me. Also, I'm looking for a road test for the 150bhp lpt. Nothing on Ebay. Sorry if this is posted in the wrong...

    A very happy customer collected my pristine MY01 9-5 Aero this afternoon with 123,000km, full service history, new tires, everything replaced which as per this forum can go bonkers and I relieved him of South African rand 95,000 read GBP7,226!
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Whilst servicing the car at 125,000km during 07 October 2004, the clutch was completely overhauled with OEM parts (clutch kit, slave cylinder and the flyweel skimmed). For a couple of months now I noticed the 2nd gear slipping back to normal and it takes a lot of effort to disengage from fifth...

    MY01 9-5 Aero had a rapid coolant disappearing at an alarming rate. Topped it but to no avail. A meticulous inspection revealed that the heat valve was kaput and thus leaking the coolant. The mechanic removed the old fox and fitted a new one (the local Astra/Opel garage concured that the Saab...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have been at pains trying to fathom what seems to be the gremlin on my MY01 9-5 Aero: Whenever I floor the gas pedal either exiting a corner or a tight bend or simply accellarating from 1st to 2nd in a straight line, the car's traction is wayward - either it pulls to the right or left and...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Has anyone gone from an old shape Aero to a new shape? Mulling over upgrading my trusty 9-5 2.0SE to an Aero. http://www.aandasaab.co.uk/ up near Wrexham have a few newer shape Aero's that I could just about stretch to. Are the newer ones worth the extra outlay? Should I try to hang on for...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I am thinking of changing my MY99 9-5 SE saloon for an MY01 (51 plate) 9-5 Linear estate but have a couple of questions? The new car has a SID1 and an AS1 stereo. Is it possible to divorce both my SID2 and AS2 head unit from my current car and marry them to the new car? I have been advised that...
