  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    A mystery: I bought this 9-5 2.2TiD about a year ago, at the time it did around 50-55mpg, went lovely, but turbo unusually loud I thought. A few months on I renewed the air filter, and at the time I noticed the rubber hose connector into the turbo was split almost all the way round and...
  2. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi There, I don't know if anybody can help me with my problem. I just changed the heater rad as it had been leaking but when I took it for a test ride, although the heater was fine, I noticed my main beam was not working. I had spare relays which I swapped and made no difference but as they...

    Hi, Everyone, This is my first post here but hopefully, with a new (used) Saab in my driveway I'll be getting to know you all. I'm looking at a '99 9-3 with manual transmission; it's in great cosmetic condition but there is no engagement between engine and wheels at all (the asking price is...
  4. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    This is of little to no consequence, but I was fiddling around in the front of the engine bay and the part pictured popped out from somewhere. If anyone recognizes it and helps me put it back where it belongs - I would be so grateful.
  5. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi I have the CEL lit on my car and having had a poke around under the bonnet, have discovered a couple of small hoses which are not attached to anything. One comes from the intake side and has vacuum when the engine is running. The other leads from the device attached to the firewall (some...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I recently bought a 2005 2.3T estate, which had a Saab supplied tow bar fitted. The dealer took it off to sell the car (very annoying) and I want to re-fit it. As well as the cable that terminates at the trailer socket there was another cable included. The local Saab spares department looked up...

    I have a strange water leak from my 2002 saab aero 9-3 convertible and its driving me a bit nuts.. My local garage have pressure tested the system but apparently but cant find the leak. I thought I had found the leak a few days ago as there is water dripping from what appears to be some sort...

  10. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi Folks, I'm the proud owner of a nice (after I've spent a small fortune on cosmetics) 2002 HOT Aero Convertible. I've been having an issue with water disappearing from the cooling system for a good month now and I cant seem to get anywhere with it. I took it into Saabco in Bishopton who have...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've got a 2000 9-5 v6 and for a short while I had a hard time starting the car. Took it to a local, highly-recommended Saab independent shop. Nordicworks in Louisville, KY. Only works on Saabs and Volvos. Hooked it up to the Tech2 and it reports that the car is moving at 3mph while in park...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My 2000 9-5 Sun roof has developed an interesting malady. Actually the sun roof works perfectly. However, the shade has been dissapearing into the headliner when the roof is opened like its supposed to do. But, when you close the roof, the shade is lodged and must be prised out. I assume there...
  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    This started as a fairly 'normal' situation for a Saab (My 5th I think - we've got 3 -Anyone looking for a nice 900s convertible?). It is a 2003 9-3 (pre facelift) HOT (Lol) Aero auto convertible. I noticed the gauge running slightly cool and after checking the water level decided to change...

    Hi everyone, i really need some help & advice because I'm getting to the end of my tether now. I've had my 9-3 1.9 TiD vector sport (150) since December. 1 month after buying it, I had to replace the clutch & flywheel. Since doing that, the engine warning light came on. I took it back to the...
  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, Saab 9-3 convertible 2L Turbo. About a year ago I had a rattling exhaust heatsheld that was fixed by Saab. It sounds like it has returned. Today I took it to a garage with a lift to take a look underneath and all heat shields looked intact and secure and exhaust was the same. It seems to...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Saabscene, Yesterday I decided to jack the front of the car up to investigate what's causing the vibration under braking and metallic scuffing noise coming from the front N/S wheel when I put anything over a 1/2 steering wheel turn to the left. I got the front wheels up and tried to reproduce...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just realised I have a button on the dashboard and have no idea what it is. It's beside the RH seat heater switch, a round button set in an obviously 9-5 surround - has the legend "Tm" and what appears to be a small light near the top of it. Does anyone else have one and/or know what it's for? -...

  19. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, I've just joined the Saab club with a Silver 1999 9-3 'vert. She is a lovely thing and I have had a lot of fun already. The first owner (and indeed quite a selling point for me) had removed the Saab audio system and put in a Kenwood stereo + cubby hole shelf as I've seen is fairly standard...
  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Strange one this, if the fuel level warning light comes on and then I put fuel in, the cruise control doesn't work :confused: The cruise light comes on but the car won't hold the speed selected or any speed for that matter, It will work again after switching off and restarting. Most confusing...
