  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Good day to you all, I wonder if you could she a little light on the drive belt pulleys for me please ?? Ive ordered what I was told was the right belt for my 2005 9 5 Aero, its a dayco belt, it had the biggest reduction from Europarts and was advised by their team it was the right one, its...
  2. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I had a problem last year where something on the main drive belt on my '97 9000 Aero made bad whining noises when starting, the colder the weather, the louder the whine. It ended when the idler pulley appeared to sieze, taking the tensioner pulley and serpentine belt with it. After replacing...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My wife has had the Saab conv 1.9tid since January and I doubt if it's had the full service at 72000 miles. There was 80000 on the clock when purchased and now 85000. I phoned Saabstyle in Taffs Well and they quoted me £650 all inclusive. Is this reasonable, seeing as it's probably a ***** of...
  4. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Folks, Finally got around to changing the 2 idler pulleys today - the car had been whining like hell and I had a feeling it had to be these. Sure enough the old idlers rattled around in their bearing races so much I'm surprised they hadn't broken up. I made up a trusty home-made compression...
  5. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi again, Today I removed serpentine belt and saw that my upper and lower idle pulleys are gone, tensioner pulley is on a good way there too. Here's my dilemma: I have saab 9-3 '98, B204L. However, my pulleys and tensioner are the same as NG900 ones (long belt version). Should I follow 9-3...

    Decided to work myself through a shopping list of things that need doing on my 2000 saab 95SE estate, just had to replace to main power steering pipe, but this now leads me to look at replacing : Power steering pump auxillary drive belt pulleys tensioners i understand that the drive belt...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I've just bought a pulley on ebay, an idler pulley on the serpentine belt. It is (allegedly) either 4029930 or 4901625 which I believe are the Pt Nos for my 1996 CSE A/C. Now then - I need to buy the "other" one before I do the job and I don't know which one I've got. Does anyone know them...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Guys, Sorry if this has been posted already - I've done a search but haven't found anything conclusive on whether post-'99 cars should have the drivebelt pulleys replaced as part of the 66K service. Mine's a 2001Y (185bhp) 2.3 and is booked into WMSS in a couple of weeks time. I know the...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've been checking the service records for my 9-5 and discovered that the auxiliary drive belt hasn't been changed for 80000 miles. I've bought a new one and arranged for it to be replaced during its service next week. Question is, at 145000 miles, would it be prudent to swallow the cost of...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Well, I finally got round to changing them at the weekend (88k on originals). So now I have skin-free knucles. Thanks to Leon's replies to previous posts changing the belt was relatively painless and I reckon could be done in less than 1 hour. The hard bit was changing the centre pulley (no.2 in...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I am going to change the serp belt and pulleys, but having read previous threads, I have a couple of questions: 1. Which are the 3 pulleys I should change from the long list on elkparts site? 2. Does the supposedly better post 99 beefed-up idler puller fit my MY98 2.0lpt? Thanks, Kev.
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    hi all, any ideas what could be causing a high pitched whining noise coming from the pulley area? it increases with engine speed, and its not a slipping belt. Car 96 aero

    I'm about to do timing chain/head gasket and in a very timely fashion, my alternator decided that yesterday it would expire its brushes. It's in the process of being reconditioned but I wanted to get the consensus of opinion. I'm going to put a new serpentine belt on when it all goes back...

    Hi people, I'm about to change both idler pulleys on my 92 2.3 CS Carlsson. I've got the tool to keep the tensioner compressed, but what is the exact procedure for doing this job?. I'm sure I've seen in the past, a full decription on how to do it. Can anybody advise please? Thanks in anticipation

  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Over the weekend I started to get an intermittant metallic squeaking noise from left side of the engine (looking from the front). Took it into the local dealership today and was told one the the idler pulleys is making the noise and may fail at any time. The tech advised that I replaced the...
