    Hi all, my reception for my radio is terrible, even my wifes 15 year old Fiesta gets better reception with a standard factory fitted ford stereo/aerial. Does anyone else suffer with that or is it just me?? Is there anything I can do, cheaply, to improve it. I was tempted with putting an old...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    Hi I have just bought a 9-3 convertible but can't get the radio to work, basically it just hisses as though there isn't a radio signal. I have lifted the soft top cover beneath the aerial and there is a little box with a plastic cover, should there be a wire going to the box as there isn't, if...

    Ever since buying my Saab back in October, I've had to suffer with really poor reception on FM radio. I have replaced the aerial booster with a salvage part. No change. Before I start pulling the dash to bits to get at the back of the head unit (2007 spec stereo with multi-changer) is there...

    The radio reception on my wife's recently purchased 9-3 is appalling. Usually strong stations (eg Radio 4) are often too weak to listen to or the radio tries to retune. Is this a 'feature' of the antennae in the rear window, or a fault? Mike

    As the post states my radio reception is not as good as it used to be and seems to be getting worse, some days it's ok and other days it won't pick up certain stations, I have tried putting on the rear demister at the same time but that has no effect, any help appreciated, steve

    Fitted replacement stereo in my 1999 9-3 turbo. Model is JVC KW-XG701. Had to use an adaptor for the aerial lead (DIN to ISO). Everything works fine, but radio reception bad (apart from Radio 1 and Classic FM!). Tried refitting old unit and everything fine again, so I haven't damaged aerial...

    For a while I've had an odd problem with the rear-window demister and the radio in my 2003 9-3. The symptoms are: - a section in the middle doesn't demist at all. It's about 2/3 of the way up and stretches about 3/4 of the way across the screen, centred in the middle. It has rounded edges. -...

    9-3 Sportwagon 18 months old Radio reception on FM is poor. It used to be fine but 'something' happened. Now very poor unless in ideal conditions. Took it Saab dealer in Oxford - v, helpful - but they measured the signal strength at the radio and said it was fine. The only problem is that...
  20. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    The radio reception is hopeless on wifes 9-3 convertible. Very crackly & hisses on FM & MW. The antenna on the hood cover looks OK.. when I unscrew it the reception goes completly, so the wire there is ok?. It may have got worse since we had a repair done to the cover (spray to fix stonechip)...
