  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Started to notice a high pitched whine from under the bonnet, which goes up in pitch along with engine speed. Does this suggest imminent turbo problems? Any ideas, please? Thanks
  2. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have recently noticed that when accelerating above 2000rpm a high pitched noise start - sounds like the blower running at high speed. The noise ceases when the revs drop to 2000rpm, yet it does not happen when I rev the engine when the car is stationary. Just seems to happen when under load...

    Hi Over the past few days when the car is started from warm, i can hear a high pitched metallic grinding noise from the a/c with a bit of rumbling. Thing is, when started from cold, i can hear a little rumble but not this high pitched metallic grinding noise. It disappears when the a/c is...

    I've become aware of a low pitched droning noise recently. Loud enough to become irritating on the motorway. Wheel bearing maybe?

    I have a 9-3 1.9tid linear and there is a high pitched whine/sound coming from the clock/radio display. If you put the nightpanal switch on the sound goes off, but so do all the other helpful displays. Does the radio need to be changed to get rid of the high pitch noise?

    Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this on their 9-3. When driving at between 60 to 75 MPH, I get a hight pitched whining/whistling noise from around the drvivers door area of the car, bit like a high pitched wind noise sound. It is not loud, but is annoying. I have a 9-3 2.0t Linear...

    Good morning Saabs fans young and old!! I have a 9000CSE and it has been running as smooth as ever. I have however noticed that lately as I am going up the gears there is a high pitched whine that gets higher and higher. It didn't really bother me at the start but now is getting pretty loud and...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Every now and then, on starting, there is a high pitched whine from up front. Yesterday evening I popped the bonnet when I heard it and tried to find out where it came from - all I could figure out was somewhere towards the bulkhead on the left hand side (as you look from the front of the car)...
