    I am selling this roof set up that i have had on my 06 saab 93 sportwagon and they have been great. i have decided to put them on this forum as it took me a while to get 3 saab ones and i thought this would be the best place to sell them as people on here would appreciate it. They are arguably...
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all I would like to jack up the car, but am uncertain where I can jack it up from? I have a hydraulic jack, and there seems to be a front crossmember with a central metallic disc with a hole in it. Just behind the radiator. Is this where I can jack it up from? Also, in order to support the...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, can someone advise me please? It's a silly question, but -- I want to take off & change the front wheels using the toolkit scissors jack. [I then use a trolley jack for belt & braces backup] All I can find on the sills is a finger sized semicircular cut out on a seam running along the...
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi Guys Having read everything on here I could find about Jacking and supporting the car - including referencing Bill J's site and excellent diagram - I just wanted to confirm a few things. The front jacking point seems obvious - a positive circular indented mount in the middle of the front...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Might not like the answer I get to first question. Have 1.9 TiD (MY 08). When I pull intro the drive I have noticed a "bleachy" smell from the exhaust, only for a short while then it disappears as the car settles. Always thought this indicated a dodgy cat converter but never had a diesel before...

    9.3 Convertible. W Reg. Year 2000 (47150 miles). That i am buying. Drove the car on this fine day yesterday afternoon. Bit country lanes and bit of dual carriage way. Car is all fine, body work underneath and everywhere else is just perfect. However i would like to ask your advise on 2 or 3...

    Where is the best place to jack from when lifting onto axle stands working on the premise that I will be putting the axle stands under the jacking points and therefore can't use those? Thanks Mike

    A cautionary story. My mate sits waiting at red traffic lights. Blue flashing lights come up behind. He pulls over the line to let blue lights through. Red light camera flashes. My mate goes to court. Magistrate says (1) Was the light red? Yes (2) When it was red, did you cross the white...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    After suffering from various electrical gremlins (slow starter speed, radio dropping out when loads turned on etc), I decided to clean up all the major connections. I have cleaned both battery posts and leads, all the positive leads at the junction box in front of the battery, both alternator...

    Hi, I have a 1998 2.3 SE which has had an ecu upgrade and would like to fit a seperate 52mm boost gauge. Can anyone tell me before I start ripping my dash out if there is any known positions it could go? I have noticed a blank space to the left of the steering wheel around the 8 o'clock position...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, can anyone tell me if there is a point on the head or block other than the oil presure switch where I could get a presure reading from? I want to put in an oil presure gauge into the car and heard a rumour that you could mount a sender on the right hand side of the block/head but as of yet I...

    Anyone out there got the WIS software for the 9-3 (or indeed exceptional knowledge!) and able to let me know where the grounding points are on the vehicle? In particular the loom/bus for the ACC and interior lighting, as I am still having problems with the cabin fan pulsing and causing ACC...

    Does anyone know how I can get hold of any of the top tether attachment anchorage points to fit into a 2002 SAAB Linear estate - the fixing holes are there behind the rear seat uprights at the base - but the manual says the actual attachements were only fitted to Austrailian cars. To fully...
  17. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Sorry if this one has been done before but I could,nt find anything on a search. I need to get under the car to give some attention to the exhuast system and I want to put it onto axle stands. Where are the central jacking points front and back?
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, Has anyone have an idea how long the front wheel ball joints last?? I have to change mine every 30K kilometers. It is a job easily done in an hour, but I have the impression the quality could be a lot better. Does anyone have a better experience with another brand than the originals of...

    Couldone some tell me where the earthing point on the front crossmember of my 85' Saab is located? If you could direct me to a diagram or picture that would be great. My wipers cause the engine to stall. Thanks, Hank
  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I wanted to remove the rear wheels last night and I remembered a previous thread where you must use the proper jacking points or risk serious damage. So I got the jack and the handbook out. And there wasn't anywhere that matched the top of the jack. in the end I used a bottle jack, and was...
