  3. She has passed

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I took Miss Saab for her MOT about 5 weeks early today.. My reasoning was I thought it would not do any harm to get it done before the paranoia takes hold and testing becomes rather more viscious regarding Diesels)... For those of you who have read my recent posts I decided to leave her alone...

  7. MOT passed but should I be worried?

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My 2001 3 litre petrol auto has just passed the MOT with no advisories which is good news and the third year in a row with no issues. My slight concern relates to the emission results, most seem fine and well within limts except for one. Results were: Natural idle: CO 0.01% (max 0.3%) Fast...
  8. Woohoo - my 9-5 passed the MOT today :)

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Its been a while since I had a car go straight though - I think I'll use this garage again :) The pointers were: 1) Rear brake pads getting thin - an easy fix, I think - though no mention was made of the hand brake which was only operating on one side and then it needed a good tug. 2) Front...

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Well the fingers crossed worked, my 127,000 mile 2001 Griffin got through its first MOT since I got it a year ago. Technicaly it did fail, the sidelight bulbs (which I got free when buying my Osram +90 bulbs) were declared as being the wrong colour, they were blue / white) but the kind chap...

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Took the car in today to a mates garage and had MOT done. A few minor things needed sorting such as one of the number plate lights was out (as soon as a screw was twisted a tiny bit the lamp came on, so a dodgy connection), a front side light lamp had totally blackend and a new wiper blade was...
