  2. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi Folks, Despite the username, I now have a 9000 Aero, fomerly owned by Gavin aka 'sevenman', I'm sure some of you know it!? The car is an absolutely fantastic example, and has been overly cared for in its lifetime, as is evident by its condition. As we come into spring I want to finish it...
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    It's a ng900 my1998 done 107k 2l turbo manual. Just been in to have thermostat changed though I'm certain this is unrelated. As I drove away in first I got a loud whirring screeching noise that sounded like gear box trouble. As I got home the engine was up to temp. Got a similar noise but...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Well, it only takes a few seconds' inattention! Scraped the N/S/F door and bu99ered the mirror reversing in a multi-storey. Yes, all right, laugh if you must. Having looked at the cost of panel-beating and respraying, I expect that a s/h door is a much easier and cheaper option - and less...

  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Could someone please point me in the direction of finding some aftermarket rims that will fit onto a 1997 9000? I have been searching for a little bit now, but can't seem to find any that will fit it. I'm guessing it is because the saab 9000 has bolts that you screw into the rotor instead of...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    MY TB has popped again into limp home mode - 3rd time in 7 months amd twice recently so I'm gonna replace it. Found a firm who can supply a recon with a 2 year warranty for £125 - trouble is they need exact pt no (fair enough) Can anyone supply the part no? My car is a MY2002 2.3 HOT Aero. BTW...
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all. 2004 2.2 TiD. Dreaded black smoke, horrible hissing from the front end and very poor fuel economy. It's intercooler change time! Hoping to do it this weekend. Has anyone got a step-by-step guide they could send me please? Thanks in advance...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have a 54 plate 3.0TID V6 vector sport (just about to join the 100k club) that has had what now seams to be fairly typical power issues. Sypmtoms were: Poor starting in damp cold weather, needed some damp start up the air intake to get it to fire. Revving ok in 1st 2nd and 3rd, but get to...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    hi there First post and new to the site (and a Saab) so apologies if this is in wrong place or has been addressed elsewhere. I have a diesel 2.2Tid 9-5 estate on a 2004 plate. Its automatic and has 58K with what looks like a very full service history, part Western Saab part local mechanic. It...
  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have a 1999 9-3 SE Turbo. This is probably a rookie question but the check gearbox light is on and it has a very rough idle and sometimes dies. If I take it to the dealer the repairs will likely cost more that the car is worth. It has 173,000 mi. but I would like to find a solution to this...

    Hello all........I have just treated me and my wife to a new 2010 9-3 vector convertible (bargain as the dealer was knocking off £9k from the list price) and have cleaned it for the very first time. However, when i washed the soft top, I dried some of the water off with a chamois leather and it...

    Can anyone tell me how i can attach a file? There is a 'manage attachment' option in 'My Controls', so i am guessing that you can add attachments to posts ( ie, pictures, documents etc). I have to attach the file as i cannot give the link to this particular site/article as it is password...

  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)

Its date of reg is December 2001 and its a dark blue estate with luuuuurvely cream leather interior. Sorry, i just love saying that, cos...
  16. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Right, car failed this year. Gutted... 1) Coil spring incomplete (offside) what the hell does that mean?, its broken or something? Is this common on a 95/95? 2) Rubber Exhaust bracket (back of the silencer) back one is missing - Is this really a fail?? 3) Handbrake cable, rusted to hell and...

    I know Saabscene is global, but it would be nice if we could Tyres instead of Tires :grin: .
