    THIS QUERY DOES NOT RELATE TO 5TH BOW LATCH MOTOR Hi all, got a case of a rebellious roof - everyone's worst nightmare but very common on the GM 900 as far as i can gather. I am based in germany and after visiting a Saab garage they told me the problem was the RH (passenger side) 5th bow...

    So Iv'e got a nasty exhaust leak and need to replace the manifold gasket, I attempted to remove the manifold with no such luck and made it worse. How is it that the manifold has to be removed? You have to pull it away from the engine and up the exhaust turbine and I'm pretty lost. Any tips?

    So today I removed the heat shield on my 9-3 turbo and I'm curious if this could be detrimental. Since the exhaust turbine and manifold are right there (now without heat shield) could this melt the plastic of the fan right there? and could it heat the coolant since there is a reservoir there...

    Hi guys i brought my car into a well known place to get the car remapped after the dpf was removed and he managed to delete the dpf, and remap it but he said he couldnt delete the EGR as he would need to remove the ECU and do it on the bench. He didnt seem that keen on doing it.. Any of ye guys...

    I read in the Haynes and on the WIZ that you can fit a pipe onto the outside of the oil filter housing to stop (minimize) the oil spillage.. 1. Do any of you actually use this method (in other words is it necessary?) 2. If you do use this method then what ID (internal Diameter) is the pipe...

    Hi, I'm new to this and find this site very helpful. I have a red Saab 9-3 Aero 1.9 Ttid 58-2009. 180bhp . I had the car for around 5/6 months and loved It to bits. Around three months ago, the little performance light came on and lost power. As soon I turn the ignition off and back on, it's...

    Here is what I did to replace the shift boot on my ’05 Aero. To begin, you should separate the shift knob from the reverse lockout. The reverse lockout clips to the shaft knob with three retaining clips. Insert three very small screwdrivers between the shift lock out and the knob. Xcelite...

    Guys, My Aero Sportwagen has started randomly firing off the alarm. It just sounds with no flashing lights and seems impervious to me pressing buttons on the remote. Even opening the door has no effect. It seems worse after a longish run. I'm guessing that the alarm is on the way out. I've...

    Hi there, Does anyone here know how to remove completely the fuel flap on a 2008 9-3 TTID? Some hooligans just dented very badly my car and I have started to try fix it but no luck, so my last resort it will be removing the fuel flap and go from there. Hopefully...

    Quick Question - My Swirl Flaps have just snapped for the 2nd time in 4 years - go figure. And so I'm wondering - Do I..... a) Replace the inlet manifold AGAIN! at a cost of £170 and my time or b) Do what Ive been meaning to do for a while - i.e. Remove some of the guts from the DPF (as...

    So I've got a problem with my whole electronics set-up. The volume won't turn up on my radio, sound was only coming out of the front right dashboard speaker, no clicks or reversing sensor beep and the battery drains overnight (also SID doesn't work). It was suggested to me that the amp1 was...

    Sorry if I'm being thick but I have searched all over for the answer to this and keep getting answers to the removal of other stuff like vents and stereo. What I want to do is remove the silver/chrome beading around the edge of my 93 sportwagon dash. (see pic) I can get a couple of inches away...
