    hi, slight dilema.. :o Power stering fluid is currently goden in colour, but saab are adament that the fluid they have provided is correct but is green in colour. Can i mix the two or does it need to be drained and re-topped with the green stuff? If so how much fluid is required if draining...

    Got a 1992 900 turbo and wanting to change the power steering fluid. How much does it take?, I called the local dealer and they said they didnt know maybe 3 or so litres so at £21.61 a litre thats a costly change. Thanks Abs

  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Well the 93 just sailed through its MOT, apart from a ball end joint and a strut arm..... and the oozing PAS pipework It doesn't leak that much, maybe a header tank full every 8 months or so but they've picked up on it. How easy is it to get at the pipework at the front. The garage says they...

    Yesterday my wife phoned me at work to tell me the 93 was making an odd moaning noise when she turned the steering wheel. as she had hit a pheasant on the road on Saturday I though it could just be something loose under the car. Anyway today I went out and its the PAS pump. I checked the...

    So i have now narrowed down my Aux Belt squeek to the PAS pump. Having replaced everything else, this is all thats left. Would make sense too. The noise is like a creaking of metal rather than a squeek. The frequency of the squeek/creak is in line with the pumps rotation. Been like this for...

    I have a small weeping leak from the high pressure hose that come of the PAS pump. I rang Saab Dealer and they want £120 +VAT for it. The other two main online Saab supplies sites dont have the item. Anyone know where i can get this part cheaper? Bit of a rip off as its only a small length...

    My S reg Escort Finesse 1.6 just failed the MOT, because PAS fluid had leaked and contaminated the brake disc on the drivers side. I spoke to a friend who used to work at the local Ford dealer who said it was a very common fault, and that I needed a new PAS fluid bottle and a new clip for the...

    Noticed a leak on drive today that has never been there before - it seems to be Power Steering Fluid - level had dropped very low, and is dripping off the splash tray underneath. Got down under car to try and see where from, but so far have not managed to get the splash tray off (some kind of...

    Deb's vert has developed an interesting steering problem. Turning the steering wheel in either direction there's a very, very small angle of negligible effort required, then a stiffer bit to get over, after which point it's OK but not as light as it should be. You don't notice it so much on...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    It looks and sounds as though the drive belt and pulleys were not replaced on my car (2.3 LPT 1998) at 66k miles (now 87k). How much are the parts and can the 3 pulleys only be bought at Saab ? Does anyone know if the power steering fluid is the same as used in early 900's since I have this and...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just wondered if any of you 9-5 owners have ever grumbled about the quality of the engine noise in the car at idle? PAS whine and other whirrs seem to be present, and it detracts from what is otherwise a very refined car. I also noticed a whirring noise that goes when I put the clutch down...

    What type is needed? The Haynes comic sez "Saab or GM type". Can I source it from a factor? My usual factor was totally clueless about what type I needed I've got gallons of red ATF type 2 fluid for a Ford PAS system, but I know that lots of systems won't take that. Thanks!

    The PAS problem I describe below has been trawled around various BBs and alt.autos.saab in the past couple of weeks without any replies. I've just realised its a bit more urgent as we are off on hols to N.W. Sutherland in a few weeks. The challenge of keeping a car on the road there is bit...
  19. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Embarrassing this: I can't loosen the mounting bolt for the pump. The 17mm nut and it's washer come off fine from the other end but the 14mm bolt head just sticks. So does this bolt run through the pump (ie is the nut attached to the bolt?)?? If so I can give it a whack from the other end...
  20. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    I have noticed a groaning whilst manouevring and parking the 900. I have checked and it is not any occupants of the vehicle nor any pedestrians that may have become trapped underneath. Having ruled out the two obvious causes my attention is now on the PAS. The thing is, the groaning is not...
