  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    Hello folks, I have a 2005 9-3 1.8i. The power steering has become temperamental. It failed about 6 months ago. The connectors were cleaned by the garage. It failed again 1 month ago - the connectors couldn't be resurrected. I bought a second hand one which failed yesterday [emoji20]. I'm...

    My mystery, and choose your own adventure, if you choose to aceept. The story starts one morning, a warm 12 degrees in Melbourne. Turn the car over it starts but only gets to about 800 revs and dies, repeat times 5 and the bus becomes the next option. At this point i did have approx 50km in...

Did my first long road trip a few weeks ago( 1800kms) and things went very well, however I have now noticed a very high pitch noise which sounds like its coming from the engine on passenger side?.

    Hi guys, new member here, I bought a saab 9-3 off one of my friends who was thinking of scrapping it after the fuel pump failed. I stripped out a fuel pump off another saab 9-3 54 plate which was a write off but the vehicle was starting and driving. This is where the fun begins. Unfortunately...

    HI All, Need a little help with his one. I have been Searching forums for a while to find a how to guide for replacing the Secondary Air Injection Pump.

    My 2001 9-5 SE coasted to a stop on Christmas eve. After having it towed home I determined the fuel pump has pumped its last. The car has about 155K miles so not too bad for a pump but not great. I should have he new pump assembly in by the week end. Ordered the ProParts replacement pump...

    Hi guys, think the cold weather has burnt the motor out. Schoolboy error of not using decent antifreeze wash :( checked fuses and the I believe f12/22 has blown (front and rear screens) as only the headlights were spraying. Replaced both fuses and the rear now works (I thought front/rear worked...

    I've got a '97 Saab 900 SE Turbo with 350k miles. Just replaced the head gasket on it. Now that I've got it back together there's a noticeable whine coming from the oil pump area. The whine is still there even with the serpentine belt off. (Video link:

  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Guys, When preparing the Cabrio I'm stripping I decided to drain out any remaining petrol in the tank before I have the remains taken to a scrapper. In the past I have done this by accessing the top of the tank, breaking into the petrol line with a tube to a container and wiring the pump...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Well, it appears my new (to me) 2003 Linear has decided to christen my ownership by having the water pump grenade on me. I'm not used to modern cars by any means, this is the newest one I've ever owned in fact. I've always been able to work on my cars myself, somehow I've managed to avoid having...

    Hi Couldn't find anything with search. Is there a procedure for changing a duff pump anywhere, or has anyone done it and have knowledge to share? I'm hoping it can be done through the rh wheel arch after removing the liner? If not and it's an engine out job, it's a scrapper I think? Thanks

    Alright boys , does anyone know where the relay or fuse for the fuel pump is. My car has just died on me( luckily in the petrol station across the road from my house) and it won't start again. Defiantly not the starter motor sounds more like fuel starvation.

    Hi Guys, I`m trying to fix my Dad's 2003 9-3 Aero. The SAI Valve failed and the Pump seems to be totalled. My Dad would like it fixed cheaply especially as the SAI pump isn't really needed. We've considered putting a lamp on the end of the wire to fool the ECU into thinking that the pump is...

    Guys, Recently bought a 'destined for scrap' '02 reg 9-5 Aero saloon thinking it was worth saving. For a start, it wouldn't ! so Mrs [email protected] K and I towed it home. First off fitted a spare DI cassette and she fired up straight away. Cracked it ! I thought. Didn't run too sweetly and was a...
