  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Like many on here my 1.9 tid has been really notchy to get in to 2nd and 3rd gears, so having time on my hands today I did the gearbox oil change fix but it was still the same afterwards. So I've also attempted the linkage adjustment fix but have run in to real problems. Everything went...

  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    So my second post, not that I'm a whinger just sharing my experience! So after a couple of weeks with the car I start to notice steering wheel vibration over 60mph on the motorways. Took the car to my local tyre fitter and had the wheels rotated, rebalanced & aligned - problem still there...

    Following on from my previous thread about my new Aero vert (05) today everything took a downward turn :( Firstly putting the roof up everything worked ok except when the windows closed the drivers window kept bouncing open (halfway) I tried to shut it at least 6-7 times, switched the car off...
  7. Saabscene: Performance
    So, my steering rack clamp and brace is fitted. Upgraded rear anti-roll bar is fitted. New tyres fitted. Stage 1 Maptuner purchased. The next stage was to phone my insurer, Direct Line, to amend my policy to cover the car with a stage 1 tune. I was expecting a 10% increase. Shock, horror...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've just done a sump drop today, as the description says the car shouldn't have been too bad, but it was, awful. Car is still not back together as I need to clean around the camshaft sprockets and need to research the simplest way to pull them off without stripping the car more - it's going to...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi fellow saab owners, I am losing the faith here. I have an 04 reg Saab 9-5, i have just had the engine replaced from the dreaded sludge issue, no help from saab whatsoever. 1900 squid later i hoped my turboship was back on track but alas no. the other day, on a slightly spirited run the...

    Morning All! I've recently bought my first (and possibly last) Saab 9-3 1.9TiD Vector 150. I love the car, the fuel economy and the apparent value for money. It is a 2005 example with 67k on the clock. A month into ownership the water pump seized and took out the cam belt at approx 70mph...
  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello All This is my first post on this forum. I have been experiencing a number of issues with my 1994 Saab 900s (non-Turbo). It is failing to start. The engine attempts to turn but to no avail. The major issue is that the problem is intermittent. Sometimes it starts, then try again and...
  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I'm having major issues with my DI cassette and my saab dealer, even after contacting GM / Saab. I have a 2001 9-3 SE. I had the DI cassette replaced once under warranty at 24,000 miles. (I also had some major problems which resulted in a new transmission and new short block being put in...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi all, Well I put the Aero in for it's MOT last week and it failed on 3 things: 1. No reserve travel in handbrake; Both worm drives on my rear calipers fail to work correctly and as the pads wear so th handbrake becomes more and more useless. 2. Front Offside Caliper sticking; I have to...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Bad day, very bad day - Only had the car just over a week, spent a lot of time finding the right spec - 03 plate 9-5 Aero estate automatic in Steel Grey. 54K miles, car is perfect. She took it out for the first time today and came back in shock I warned her about 250bhp - twice as much as her...

    Well we've finally took delivery of the Zafira (04 reg, 18 months old, diesel etc), and I've been looking at the User Manual and service booklet. I have to say that the layout and user friendliness of both is appalling. The Saab books that came with my 2000MY 9-5 were very good, in terms of...
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just under 4 years old, told oil starvation and told need a new engine, but good news becuse it is a known problem Saab will make a contribution, but hold it one of the services was not with Saab so forget it you pay the lot. So in fact no good news. So I have a quality car that is just under 4...

  18. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I am having loads of problems with the alarm on my 93. Sometimes I'll get out of the car, go to arm the alarm and nothing happens. I have to put the key back into the ignition turn it on and then I can lock the car. Also I can arm the alarm, go into a shop, come back out and I cannot get into...
