    Recently replaced the alternator but lopped off the silly nozzle on the plastic brake fluid reservoir in the process, did a temp stick-back-on-job with superglue which seemed fine until yesterday the brake warning light came on with the singing ding doing audible note! Noted the brake fluid was...

    I recently bought my saab knowing that the top did not work for some reason. when I took a look at the pump the fluid reservoir was empty, but I did not see any signs of a leak logically though I know there has to be one I could use some help. Where are the common places for leaks in this...

    i have slight weeping from the power steering reservoir that is leaking down onto other bits of the engine. Tbh it's been there for ages but it does seem a bit worse lately. It is very slight as I've lost no fluid ( when checking the level) but it looks crap and cant be good thing overall. I...

    Okay so basically I have finally got a reasonable insurance quote on my 1988 T8 so I have been using it recently. I started to notice I was dropping water once I had parked. Not immediately as I pulled up, but when I would come back to the car. It never happens when I am driving along. Once...

    Is there a seperate reservoir for the rear screen wash? The front washers work and the headlight washers. But when I try the rear screen I can hear pump running but no water comes out of washers.

    Hi All, One problem I encountered after purchasing my car was with the windshield washer reservoir(thats what I call it on this side of the pond). Anyway, You can imagine my suprise when I filled it with fluid only to watch it drip out the bottom. So with some time on my hands waiting...

    Mine has a crack in it. Is it a big job to fit a new one? Apart from the fact it's in an awkward position that is? Mind you what isn't? Oh and anyone know how much a new one is?

    Hi, I am currently in the process of negotiations with someone wanting to sell me his Saab 900 S 2.3i with automatic transmission. Today the car was subject to extensive examination, which showed that it was leaking oil to the cooling reservoir. The owner suggested this most likely is...
