    Bit hard to describe this, I have a rattle that sounds a bit like a loose heatshield its there when pulling away and when revving the engine happens with the AC on or off. Has anyone come across similar? Car is a 9-3 Sportcombi 1.8t
  2. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Gents -- First, I am new to this site. Second, Am NOT computer literate, so am having trouble navigating through this site. Took me a while to get used to Chevy Chatter also. Please be patient. I purchased a 2000 9-3 last fall and was happy with it until now. Son was using it and things went...

    Hi All, I have read on several internet sites that the 9-3 creakes and rattles.. Well I think someone forgot to tell my car of this fact. Dead seriously there isnt the slightest creak or rattle anywhere on mine.. I dont even get any rattles when I whop up the volume on the Radio / CD player. Has...

    Hi all I have a 2010 93 ttid today the engine developed a rattle from the top end. I changed the oil and filter this made a slight difference but not much. I was wondering if it is a common problem with this engine. Cheers.

    Hi All, I can hear a slight metallic rattle from my Saab 2009 9-3 1.9TiD when the aircon is on and it disappears when it's switched off. It had a new AC compressor and alternator after a catastrophic failure in France but it was repaired to a good standard (I think) Any ideas as noting is...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi there ! Trying to diagnose an 2003 1.8t that I'm offered to buy cheap. The car has been driving fine with no signs of anything wrong, but died suddenly cruising at 50 mph. The current owner hasn't been able to start it since, just a click when he turn the key. This was in April this year...

  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Just very recently (less than a week ago in fact, posted in new members introductions) bought myself a 57 plate 9-3 tid 150. 70k on the clock, full Saab service history including apparent water pump/cam belt change 4000 miles ago. Seems like an extremely well looked after car and after an...
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi All! So, after my "keep it or not" thread, I've decided to keep and begin rebuilding my 9000. It's overall in too good of condition to just scrap it. Here's my quandary, however. I replaced the blower motor and speed control resistor (the old motor had only 3 commutator bars left, so I'd...
  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Just wondering if anyone has a solution for a dashboard rattle(especially in summer). It seems to come from above the glove box on the front passenger side. Really annoying. Apart from this the car is great!!
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Heyo, my manual 2006 Saab 9-3 is rattling in the front passenger side engine. The rattle only starts after 45/50 mph and does not get louder or stronger after that (at least up to the 70 mph that I tried.) A look-around does not show anything. It's not wildly loud--I was driving in the rain...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    when I first start my car theres a slight rattle from the right side of the dash and also when you rev slightly you can hear it? any ideas?
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    An annoying rattle had manifested itself behind the dash of my 93. After a bit of rooting around I found the coolant reservoir was a bit loose in it's cradle. It's just a snap-fit, cushioned by a strip of foam. This foam had gone flat which meant that the plastic bottle itself was rattling...

    Hi guys thinking about changing my car have loved both of the Saabs that I have owned over the past 9 years, and was :crazy:seriously considering buying a third, my only question to those of you that have the newer Ttid's ? Is did the build quality improve I have not been in a newer model. The...
  16. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I have not long since bought my first saab, a 05 9-3 1.9 TID 150. I have a quick question, when the car is at idle she ticks over lovely, however if I blip the throttle the is a shortish but noticeable rattle from the left hand side of the car as the revs first start to drop post the blip...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi guys, I am looking at a very nice clean 2006 9-5 with 116k. Guy is asking $4500, it has a headlight and brakelight out, and drivers seat adjustment panel is loose-but that seems to be about it. It drives solid, shifts smoothly (automatic)-I'm really loving it. Only unnerving thing was a...

  19. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello, What does timing chain rattle sound like ? Does it make the engine sound a little like a diesel ? How likely is it that a 2001 Aero that's done 139,00 miles with 10,000 mile oil change intervals would have it ? Thanks for any advice you may offer.
  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Not sure if this is anything really to worry about but no harm in asking. First off the car is a 2002 9-5 Aero hot estate. Only when at idle and only with the auto gearbox in drive \ reverse there is a rattling noise. When on the move or in park the noise goes away. I had the gearbox oil...
