    Hello, Last week i upgraded from my 9-3TiD 120bhp (remapped) to a 2008 TTid Aero. I love everything about the new car apart from there seems to be a few rattles in various places on the trim, i didnt have this with my old one. The one big one seems to be around the radio area but behind and...

    With so many threads containing comments about the seemingly never ending sources of rattles and buzzes in the 98-02 9-3, I thought it may be worth trying to get a 'Top Ten Rattles' list together, ideally with photo fixes. Who knows, there may even be more than ten! As a starter, my Coupe 2.2...

    Playing around with a lot of old T5 boost valves of late. Holding two in my hand at the moment. One rattles when you shake it up and down in line with the way the solenoid would move inside. The other doesn't. What is the default. Should they both rattle or should they both be quiet?

    Hi, The driver's side window rattles when half-way down and it drives me nuts. It always sounds like it is just about to fall in pieces. What do you think could be a cause of that ? Is this a normal occurance and do I need to order any parts before taking the whole thing apart ? Thanks. Oh...

    guys just been made a good offer to buy my 9-3 company TiD 120 on a 56plate but i am after some advice - there is a loud rattle noise from the gearbox tunnel area and wondered if there were any suggestions as to what the issue maybe, fear is that its some bearing (its prevalent when over 2.5k...

    hi guys, i know there's plenty of posts on suspension problems here, but this ones doing my nut in! i've been to a few garages inc saab,and they can't find any problem, everything suspension ways seems tight. i thought maybe the driveshaft/ ball joint/cv joint, but had that come back a negative...

    Hi everyone, Newbie here! I've had my 53 plate 9-3 2.0t for 4 months and aprt from the (usual?) rattles, clunks, grinds, boinks, dinks, and knocks I have a strange noise that is audible at low speed braking. When touching the brakes (even lightly) there is a very obvious "knock" from both front...

    Hi, I have a 2002 9-3 TDi that recently has started getting a bit of a rattle, I'm hoping that someone out there may be able to point me in the right direction as to what they may be. I'm not mechanically savvy so keep things simple please :) 1) I have a failry loud knock when i go to full...
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I am getting a rattle noise when I drive over bumps in my MY97 Saab 9000 CSE, which disappears when I brake. I then had a look at the near side front brake pads and although there is loads of life left in them, the inboard pad can be moved about 1/2cm up and down in the calliper. The outboard...

    Hi I have a 6 month old 9-3 Sports Wagon 1.9 TID Airflow. 9000 miles on the clock. Great car but it rattles, I've had it in the garage 3 times and they have found the cause of some, but one keeps eluding them. It's a "tinny" buzzing type rattle that sounds like it comes from down behind my left...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My 2004 2.2TiD sport linear is trying to send me to the local asylum. It has the 17 inch alloys but not the suspension to match them, I don't think so anyway. It certainly rides a lot softer and higher than my Aero used to do. The problem I have is with the ride noise. It sounds as though a...

    Does anyone have ant clever tips for finding and curing rattles. My girlfriends hates it when I start feeling around the dash/console in search of a rattle whilst driving but I just can't ignore them. Are there some particular areas that cuase common rattles? I'm planning to arm myself with...

    Hi All, My 9-3 has been back to the dealer more times than I can remember for various creaks and rattles etc. However, the one they cant/wont fix is a REALLY annoying buzzing from the door. Its driving me F**king nuts. I found this (http://www.geocities.com/astrodave245/saab_93_buzz_fix.html)...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Does anyone have an annoying rattle that seems to be coming out of the dash directly above the steering wheel? It is not the speaker cover but seems to be under the dash directly infront of the steering wheel - is this common? - as it has come on rather quick and has never been heard before...
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, More through luck rather than anything else - I cannot hear anymore aircon noises and rattles from my Saab95! HOORAHHHH ! This is all achieved by catching the latest flu bug that is going around. It comes on within an hour and is very violent indeed - but it leaves you with impaired...

    I have a 1999 2.0 SE 5-door. I get some really weird noises that I just cant quite figure out. If from cold I go over some speed bumps near my house I get what sounds like a scraping noise from what seems like just in front on the outside of the footwell. When the car has been driving for 15...

    Can anyone tell me what secures the passenger side airbag? I have an anoying rattle coming from the airbag assembly part (where the glovebox would have been).

    I have to turn the radio up so I can't hear it I know hatchbacks rattle more than saloons but I'm getting fed up I've secured everything in the boot, don't carry much anyway. There's nothing loose inside the car rattling. Ok so the leather creaks a bit. Any particular areas I should...
