    Hello guys Have a problem with my 2009 Saab 9-3 1.8t (Biopower). When I shift in high RPM (after 4500 RPM, any gear) the clutch pedal wont come up all the way. It comes up 1/3 of the way, and I have to push it up with my foot. It is possible to change gear even if I dont push up. If I pump...

    Evening all. Have a metallic sounding clunk when changing gear, can also make it clunk on and off the accelerator, not so loud but annoying now I know it is there. Took a look at the engine mounts, they are ok. Thought it may be gearbox back lash but decided against it. Just had a twist on the...
  7. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    Just bled both front brakes after doing a bit of work on them,but pedal feels spongy. Without the engine running 1 pump of pedal and all is normal even after applying pressure to pedal. But with the engine running when I try the brakes the pedal travels slowly to floor. Any thoughts on this...

    Afternoon all, I have just driven the wife's 1999 9-3 Turbo SE convertible and the travel on the brake pedal is incredible. If it wast for the rear discs I would say the drums need adjustment..... I have just bled the brakes twice with no change, all wheel bearings are ok and apart from some...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, About a year ago my 2006 Saab 9-3 convertible started jumping into limp mode. Reading the error code with an OBDII I found the error code P2138. This code suggest that there is something wrong with the gas pedal sensor. As I have no experience with doing any repairs myself, I...

    Just thought I'd let all know I replaced my foot pedal rubbers today with the sporty looking genuine Vauxhall VXR pedal kit. I would love to have had the Hirsch pedals, but I just can't justify spending that sort of money on something I'm sticking my feet on everyday. I bought the pedal rubbers...

  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi guys, Maybe you can shed some light on my situation. I was driving my car the other day and my pedal went to the floor and never returned. I had to drive it home in second since that was the only gear I could get it into. I was wondering if this might be a clutch master cylinder or the slave...
  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Saab 9.3 2002/3 convertible 2.0t. I have an annoying whistle which is intermittent but dissapears when touching brake pedal. It sometimes still whistles when car is stationary with engine running, so not associated with the brake discs. If vaccum pipe is disconnected when engine running and...

    Hi everyone, Our 2002 2.0T 9-3 Convertible Auto has developed a hissing sound coming from the brake pedal area (inside) when your foot is off the brake pedal. Brakes operate normally and when you press the pedal but hiss comes when off. You can jiggle the pedal with your foot and make the hiss...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, Two brake related issues (which I assume might have the same root cause) with my 2008 9-5 2,0 aut: Issue 1: Sometimes when I start driving the brake pedal is very soft and I have to push it all the way down to apply the brakes. This happens at low speed and it is only an issue the...

    Just a quick question, not having driven my 1.9 tid for a couple of months (due to knee operation) I have noticed a noise when the clutch pedal is starting to be pressed but disappears when fully pressed, what do you guys think DMF wear or thrust bearing wear? otherwise car runs like a dream...

    Hi All New to the site, but hoping to catch up fast...... Whilst driving my 1999 Viggen Cab along the motorway I went to change gear and my clutch pedal just went flat to the floor with no effort at all and stayed there! I managed to pull over onto the hard shoulder and the RAC man that had a...

    Hello Wondered if anyone could advise if my slave or master cylinder has failed, the symptom is that the clutch peddle operates normally when first driven, but starts to stick half way down after a few gear changes. There is a little oil in the footwell and a slight hydraulic oil leak on one of...
