    Hi all, Im new here! I have a problem on my Saab 93. The locking wheel nuts are seized up and have snapped the key. I have had two garages try and fail at removing them as apparently they are extremely tight. Does anyone know how to sort this?

    I just replaced the rear shocks on our 2005 Saab 9-5 Arc sedan. It’s a pretty easy job except for the (dreaded) rusty nut. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about if you’ve done this job. I first removed the passenger’s side spring/shock assembly. At first I tried to use a closed-end wrench...

    I'm going to be replacing the right side wheel bearing and was wondering what the driveshaft nut size is and what is the torque is on that nut. It's a '95 cs with 160 k miles. Thanks, Jeffrey

    Well, I've had a lovely day today! After getting my Saab last week I thought it would be wise to get some locking wheel nuts as it didn't have any on the 17 inch alloys at the time. So I went on ebay and found myself some genuine Saab locking wheel nuts. New condition, still in the packet with...

    I have a bit of a rattle on my front suspension that appears to be slowly getting worse. About a year ago I replaced the front shocks but only used some mole grips on a socket and an allen key to tighten. Just to make sure they are properly tight, I want to buy the right tool to tighten I. think...

    In changing a puncture tonight (dark, rain... ) I did what I thought was the hard part (locating the jack in the funny little jacking point), and then managed to strip almost completely the wavy part of the of the locking wheel nut remover tool. The puncture was not so bad and not so far from...

    We bought a nice silver 2002 9-5 Aero Auto estate in Feb, and I now want to service the brakes. There are two locking wheel nuts on the car and I cannot find a key. We cannot find the previous owner as it was sold by a trader. The holes in the locking wheel nut are three small holes...

    Hi everyone. I have a 2004 Saab 9-3 2.0t. It has had a small oil leak for a little while and it seems like it is coming from this nut behind the engine/ under this hose that goes into the firewall. I've tried tightening the nut but it didn't seem to help. Does anybody know what's wrong? It seems...
