  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi everyone, The girlfriends car (9-5, 2.0 Auto, ~100,000 miles) has started giving puff of blue smoke on start-up, the most likely culprit usually seems to be the turbo so I took the cobra pipe off to have a look. There was a small pool of oil in the turbo housing and the bottom of the cobra...

    The reception on my radio has always been a tad sketchy ...... I recently replaced the antenna amplifier which has improved matters greatly (The base radio setup) However the reception is heavily directional .... Any stations transmitted in front or behind is received well excellently even...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi I've now entered into Saab ownership with a 2002 9-5 aero hot auto. The car has done some miles but is pretty tidy and been fairly well looked after. Anyway among a couple of cosmetic things that need sorting is a perishing rubber casing on the antennae. The car doesn't have sat nav and I...

    Hi Looking at a 2009 93 with the factory fitted satnav ( I know its clunky but want the factory look) and I was wandering what the options are for cd changer, can it still have one in the boot or is it all integrated in head unit.

    Our 57 plate 93 Tid 150 will be going for it's MOT in the next couple of weeks & we normally have it serviced at the same time. However, the car has only done 3000 miles since it's last MOT & service - I know it's not enough, but the missus bought it on a whim when she saw it at a dealers. At...

  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi guys, I've trawled the posts and there is much discussion on this very topic - but I thought I'd raise it again to get the latest feedback, as many of the posts are a few years old now. My beloved 2002 2.3t auto has suffered turbo failure. I was very lucky and managed to get it the few...
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I know there is a sticky thread on all the things you can change but I thought maybe we could make this a thread with the most useful ones listed so they are clear and easy to see and for anyone (like me) who's paying full price for a TechII service from a garage, can simply ask for the best...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    2.0l engine - Thinking of changing the rear box only something a little deeper in note but not too intrusive, ideally stainless so i do not need to replace it agian. I am not expecting big BHP increases. I know Hirsch make them for around £700.00+ but no looking to spend that sort of cashr - up...

    Bought it when times were good in 2002. My health to a tumble in '06. The good news is I'm back, sometimes not 100%, but my '99 silver coupe sat in the driveway a lot and has only 67K miles. (I really want to find the stock radio's DIN socket's code reference to make RCA outs. I have the pin...

    I hit a deer and the shop cannot find a left or driver's headlight for my 2008 9-3. Is it possible to upgrade the lights with two Xenon headlights? What sort of extra wiring and parts may be needed? Is it possible? My shop says it isn't possible. Am I missing a place that where I'd be...

    Lot my key in Sydney. Mildren SAAB Sydney quoted $380 to replace it. Options? 2002 Anniversary Turbo 93. Older Shape. Remote on Key. Three buttons inc. boot key. $380 seems steep. Please let me know if I have ant alternatives. Chris.​
