  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hey fellow Saabians, I decided that I would try a bit of translucent plasti dip on the buttons and I'm stoked with the result. Here are the steps... 1. Remove all buttons. Search how to remove 9-3 Sterio in Google for video. 2. Use Oomph goo & stain remover, spray it on 5-6 times waiting a...
  2. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    On my 2005 95 2.3t Vector sport saloon the rear silence box is peeling and does not look good. But my very reliable indy garage reassured me at the MOT (last Dec) that this is not a problem. The inner skin is visible in parts and looks ok. Any experience or advice on this? The garage will check...

    My 2004 Saab 9-3 suffers from peeling on the door handle and panel near some controls on the panel near the radio. Any ideas on refinishing?
  4. Wash and Brush Up
    Hi. Over the last few months the lacquer has started peeling on the front bumper. It's only the lacquer and not the fusion blue paint underneath, but it's starting to look a bit of a mess. Any thoughts on the best way to repair this - i.e. sand it down, spray or touch up pen? The patches are...

  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, It's a small niggle, but some of the black stuff has peeled off from my A/C controls. It's obviously not just matt black paint - it has a soft rubber like feel. Can I get touch up paint for this or is it more esoteric than conventional paint? TIA
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    The interior fabric panelling of the hood in my 1995 900 convertible has started to peel away in the recent cold weather. It's currently isolated to a small area above the drivers visor but I am worried that it could spread. It appears that as the weather goes beyond freezing temperature the...
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I don't ever recall using a silicon back to black type treatment as per the thread below So dunno why the matt black rubbery type paint on sides have suddenly started to peel - I presume age - or perhaps our one nice summer for this...

    I own a M03 9-3 Aero and the buttons for the A/C as well as the glove compartment started peeling. I've checked with local dealer (Ballards of Finchley Saab), but they implied that they need to replace the whole media console - for A/C button for example, or some similar term. is that the way...

    Hey all, It's been a while since I've posted here, I now have a new Saab, and with that, some more questions! It's a 2003 9-3 Linear. All black, and looks quite nice! Unfortunately, the buttons on the radio have been peeling badly, and I was looking to replace them, although I didnt want to...
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Has anyone found anything to touch up the dashboard paint that peels off - Saab do not offer anything and I do not want to change the whole dashboard just for a few areas. My vehicle is out of warranty so I cannot play that card. What I need is an idea on what paint to use - e.g. Humbrol Matt...

    HELP!! Not long ago I found a tiny spot on the door surface. Yesterday I brought my 9-3 to auto car wash. After the wash a large area of gloss surface has been peeled off at that position! Please see the photos I taken.[email protected]/2985006786/ Any advice from...
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi everyone, This is my first post and this seems a very useful forum. I'm generally very happy with my O5 linear sportwagon Tid but I seem to be getting the peeling/wearing of plastic trim on the glove compartment button. Does anyone know if this trim problem is covered under warranty? Thanks

    I have currently purchased a 9-3 (04) and have noticed the plastic coating from the ventilation knobs, dashboard surround and gear lever surround (Auto)is peeling. I have contacted my Saab dealer who informed me that they will replace under warranty, however they are in the process of finding...
