    Hello, Do any of 2.3 engines use a grooved pulley ? I bid on a billet alum. pulley(ebay) and when I opened box... it has grooves. Seller says there is a grooved pulley on some 2.3 engines. Both idler and tensioner are smooth 1997 9k cse 2.3 turbo KB

    I've been reassembling, disassembling and reassembling my 1982 turbo 900 for quite some time now, it seems that once I fix something and rebuild it, something else breaks. Anyways, I had it running not too long ago, it was running quite well and I was feeling pretty good about myself when I...

    Anyone got any tricks for freeing the crank pulley bolt? I need to gte the crank pulley off to replace the crank position sensor (B202 NA engine). Unfortunately I don't have an air powered impact wrench. Tried putting it in gear, getting someone to stand on the brakes while using a breaker bar...

    Saturday, the auxilliary drivebelt idler pulley started chirping (dry bearing?). I had just started the car on my driveway and I heard it start. A quick listen under the bonnet confirmed it, so I abandoned what I was doing and took the engine mounting off, took the tension off the belt and...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello, I have searched everywhere and have not found a straight answer yet on how to change the middle pulley on my GM900 - the ruddy thing has collapsed and detached itself. Can't seem to get anything onto it and it seems to be too wide to just pull off. I am probably missing the obvious...

    Colleague in the office has a 51 reg 9-3SE. Pulley on the aircon is wobbling. He's been quoted £800 for repair by an independent Saab specialist, which is too much for him at the moment. Even the Elkparts cheaper compressor is too much. I suggested a short belt, to bypass the compressor, but...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    On the way home today I noticed there's a sort of, well, best described as a mix of a low rumble/hiss/screech noise that seems to be coming from around the pulley/belt area. I'm hoping this will be covered by warrantee, but can anyone give me a ballpark on getting the pulley(s) replaced...

    Following my post a couple of weeks ago, I had the local garage fit a new auxiliary drive belt, as it was last changed 80k/5 years ago. Some confusion was caused because the new drive belt was shorter than the old one, but as I'm sure many of you out there know (but I didn't) pulley number 2 on...

    Hi, I have had some rumbling from the pulleys on the auxiliary drive belt (i.e. the serpentine belt). Changing the two idler pulleys was fairly straightforward since they are retained by 13mm bolts. Fitting the new belt was easy enough too (using the diagram in Haynes). However, I can't figure...

    Yesterday the pulley on the crank on my brother's 9000 fell apart with no warning with the metal part dropping off. Luckily the serpentine belt dropped onto the rubber core and carried on running until he could get the car to the side of the road. The car has done 160K miles. Is this sudden...

    I'm probably walking a well trampled path here, but this car is all new to me.... I seem to have the well known 'whining idler' problem. Before I go scraping knuckles, are there any tips, care points, special tools, etc that would be worth knowing about in advance? Is it false economy to change...

    the idler pulley is squeaking like hell on my turbo, is it an easy job to do? Haynes only gives it a couple of paragraphs Are they expensive?

    Afternoon people, The serpentine belt on my 92 2.3 CS Carlsson came adrift on Friday evening and I was trailered home by Mr.AA. Today I set about replacing it along with the 2 pulleys. When stripped down, I noticed that the crankshaft pulley looked out of line. Further investigation showed that...

    Well, the idler pulley is ruined along with the serpentine belt. i just order new ones along with the serpentine compressing tool. anyone have any tips for this. i've only used the socket type serpentine tool and the belt was never "trapped" like the saab is. thanks

    Hi, i have a 96 Aero manual that has developed an irritating squeak/warble which is clearly coming from something driven by the serpentine belt. I am almost certain that i have traced it to the idler pulley due to the fact that when i sprayed a bit of WD40 directly onto the inner and outer...
