    Wonder if anyone can shed some light on this subject Was this PCV kit subject to a SAAB recall? Whilst under warranty; the associated Saab garage said they had carried out the fix, but after recently visiting a specialist he says it hasn't been done. I've compared the Elk parts kit I bought...
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've just got a letter from Saab asking me to take the car to the dealer for a recall. There is a risk of the power steering pipe chafing on the radiator. There's a new pipe and protection guard to fit. Is this just the 2006 on model? Just the estate? Just the Aero? Anyone else got a letter?

    After reading about the DI problems and seeing the chance for new one for free :grin: I gave the local dealer a call. They needed to know the 7 digit number off the sticker. He told me that if the number starts with a D (eg. D123456) It may be affected, All others are ok. Mine starts with a G...

    If you’ve got a 2006 or 2007 model Saab 9-3 Aero then you might want to give some thought to your brakes. Are they working OK or have they had you wondering. It’s not a recall as yet, but the Detroit News report that it’s being looked at: <blockquote>General Motors Corp.’s Saab 9-3 Aero...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all, After reading about it on here a while ago, I finally got round to calling my dealer about the DI cassette recall that's currently on for some 9-3's. Sure enough mine is included, and is therefore now booked in for a replacement next Thursday. Question is, anyone know if the plugs need...

    Received a letter from Saab GB today informing me that my Sportwagon MY07 was in the range of chassis numbers which might have been fitted with an incorrectly programmed control module. Mixture either too lean or too rich which results in starting problems. I've had the car for almost a year...

  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all I've just put a deposit on a 9-5 that I hope to collect this afternoon. One thing I'm nost sure of though is that none of the recall check boxes are marked (it's a 02 aero) long are the recalls valid for? Can I still take the car in to a dealership to get them done (that is...

    Heard a rumour today that there was a recall currently for some 9-3SS cars. Possible fault in the speed sensor wiring harness. Round about '06 / '56 registration. Fault can cause spurious warning lights on dashboard relating to ABS/TCS etc.

    Anyone see Watchdog tonight? They covered the problem with the Throttle management unit on MY99- volvos. Seems the US Safety unit has forced Volvo into issuing a recall to upgrade software and/or provide some of the costs of replacing units. This is done under an extended 10 year, 200,000 mile...

    Guys, Read a couple of posts that have mentioned fading plastic on the door handles etc were part of a recall. I think that mine could now be fading and it really does affect the appearance of the car. Can anyone tell me if there was a recall ot if I've dreamt it all up!
