It keeps pulling to the right. Say I'm driving on a lovely smooth, dry, camber free motorway. Sounds perfect right? Wrong. If I...

    Hi Folks, Has anybody experienced a clunk sound after pulling away? My car does it i.e. about a second after pulling away when clutch is fully released, although it only does it the first time you pull away after starting ignition. Pulling away at junctions etc, produces no sound. However...

    Is this even possible. Will the drive shaft require more room to clear the manual transmission than there is available with the transmission left in place? Thanks for any help.

    Hi, I've had an intermittent CEL issue for a while now. I read this evening about pulling fuse 17 to reset the ECU. I did this, left for a while, replaced. Now the car won't start at all. Doors open with remote, lights on etc. Fan cuts in and out too so I don't think I managed to drain the...

    I have this bizzare issue with my 04 plate saab. The engine management light comes on occasionally and the car doesnt pull. Before this was only the case when I had more than a 1/4 tank of fuel but if I have less than a 1/4 it still doing it. The car is powerless, and jerks a lot like its...

    I had a problem with a bent heater box in my 1999 93. I managed to add some screws and fix the stuck air flow flap and now the air knobs are working with ease. Unfortunately I went crazy when greasing (in spray) the inside of the heating box - I managed to do it via the air duct holes - and now...

    Hi all that read this. A friend of mine has a 9-3 vert. It pulls to the left all the time, not just under braking. WHY? We have checked .. The Tyres. Tracking, Steering alignment Joints. Bushes Any ideas what would cause this? TIA
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Having recently found lots of useful 'pulling code info' for the boss' Astra, using a bridge across certain diagnostic plug terminals, I was wondering if the same or similar could be done on a 9-5? Enlighten me either way...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I'm trying to pull the engine on my 96 saab 9000 automatic without pulling the transmission. I'm not too familiar with automatic trabsmissions, so I removed the bolts going from the flywheel to what I'm fairly certain is the torque converter, (the three that go through the fly wheel from the...
  19. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My 03 Aero has started to pull to the left. Now is it a simple case of either Tracking or could it be something more sinister like a dodgy shock ? I have checked the tyre pressures on the front and they are both reading the same.

    Local shop will R&R 5 spd for free to give (sell) old to another customer. I picked up a fresh rebuild in a parts car, nothing wrong with mine just 135k mi. The one he wants to replace went 365k mi. before giving up. I plan on doing a clutch job (needs it) but at 135k should I worry about CV...
