    Hi can anyone help? I'm at the end of my tether with this car. I've been averaging spending £1000 a year just keeping this car going! The latest issue is difficulty starting when cold. Originally it took ages to fire and flattened the battery. So ichanged glow plugs and had new battery. It...

  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    We have owned a 1994 SAAB 900 SE V6 Auto for the last 18 months and the air con unit has never worked for us, nor the previous owners. The heater/fan unit works however we've no idea what the problem could be with the air con. Given the value of the car, I'd like to see what we could do...

    Hi, I have a 1999 9-3 s. Since I bought it I cannot use the CD player (in the boot) as the head unit asks for the CD code. I do not have this code, nor do the Saab dealers, as I checked. Is there any way of finding this, or can they be 'decoded'? The stereo is original, with tape deck which is...

    My car was left with a friend to take in for bodywork repair while I was on holiday. When I got back the Central Locking would not work from the keyfob. (apparently they couldn't get the car started and didn't know about the immobiliser) but I don't know what else was done. CL worked ok from...
  18. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I just finished putting the engine back together on my 2000 2.0 Aero 9-3 HOT. I have replaced the Head Gasket, chains, tensioners and dropped the sump. The car started first time no problems and idles lovely. The problems are, when the throttle is applied, the engine stumbles and misfires. I...
