    I'm looking at added some reversing sensors to my 93 convertible...anybody who has driven these will know that rear vision is fairly restricted. The bumper I have is the one without the the trim strip so these will fit on the smooth bumper itself. The question is, can i get hold of a template or...

    Hi all, Im looking to fit aftermarket reversing sensors on my 56 plate 93 saloon sport, i have exposed the reversing light cluster and see that the only coloured wires going into the light cluster are Black. I have traced the wiring back down from the boot lid to the circuit board/Fuse box, but...

    Can someone confirm that this model only has one fog and one reversing light as standard? - fitted to the off-side (RHD). I believe you can fit a second fog light but not a second reversing light to the near-side cluster. MOT today, just checked the lights and the n/s reverse/brake cluster...

    I have a 2001 9-3 TiD 2.2, manual 5 speed, and the reversing light switch on the transmission has failed for the second time in 20,000 miles. Both occurences are since I fitted a new gearbox. When the switch fails, the plunger on it jams in and the reversing lights stay on even in neutral or...

    Hello All, I am a new SAAB 93 owner and so far very pleased. My SAAB is 2006 93 tid Vector Sport 120BHP. Unfortunately my car does not have reversing sensors, and as the 93 is a bit bigger than my previous car, I fancy a bit of re-assurance when parking. I'm watching the pennies so i'm looking...

    Hi All, I have fitted a full SAAB towbar including the trailer module etc a couple of things that I don't know how it's supposed to work so thought I'd check with anyone who had a SAAB fit done. I am using a 13pin to 7 pin convertor, with only the light connections as not need for the others...

    Hello All, I've got a 2005 93 1.9Tid Sport, over the last 3 months the reversing sensors have started to intermittently fail with a SID error msg, I can't remember the wording but its along the lines of its not working seek a garage.. Now its not working at all....which is a shame because it...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I notice that almost all the peculiar faults that appear here are, in fact, quite common and well-documented problems. So here are a couple of questions our wizards might be able to help with, please. Park assist: mine is erratic - sometimes it works perfectly, at others it emits a continuous...
  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Had an odd one last week and didn't think anything of it until Mrs Rag-Top came home this week with the same issue! Got to work and reversed into my parking space as usual. Beepers went off (as usual) and I took it out of gear but they stayed on. Turned off the ignition and took the key out but...
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    As the reversing light doesn't work I tested the switch in situ, found it was faulty by doing a continuity test and ordered a new one. However the one that arrived was totally different. The original one on the car is a GM reference 90482454 rather than the Saab replacement that I bought which...
  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all, I've just heard a new noise when reversing out of my drive on full right lock, obviously at slow spped :-) The sound i hear is like 'donk donk donk' eminating from the drivers side wheel arch. I thought perhaps it was the CV joint or track rod end... but the strange thing is that it...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Does anyone have any experience of fitting reversing sensors to a 9-5 estate (MY05)? Having managed to damage my back, twisting round in the seat is becoming a bit of a pain (physically and metaphorically). After a bit of googling, the key questions seem to be: (a) Is the rear bumper on the...

    Hi All, I've noticed today that the paint appears to be wearing away from my parking sensors on my 2007 9-3. I can see silver starting to appear beneath the paint. They are the standard black parking sensors. Has anyone got any advice on how I can make them black again? I've no idea why this...

    Just noticed that my reversing lights do not work, so I have changed the bulbs twice and replaced fuse number 13, but they still do not work, has anyone any ideas on where I go from here?? Andy
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello all I have recently noticed a squeaking sound when reversing its only there when im actually steering though, only noticed it in the last couple of days and dont know how long its been there as you can only hear it with the windows open. Just to clarify no noise when reversing straight...

    Hello, My 2.3L '96 900SE automatic's reversing lights no longer work. They used to flash on and off when the gear selector was moved slightly when in reverse, but they now no longer work at all. After having stripped out the centre console and checked everything on the selector itself, I...

    Hello gents, I have purchased my first saab, a saab 93 2.0t vector sport 2007 model (even though Its registered late 2006! ). Absolutely love it. The only problem so far is that the reversing radar is not loud enough. I have to turn stereo down when I am reversing & tell passengers to keep...

    My 01 Estate has developed a brake noise when reversing. Not had a look at it yet, but wondered if anyone had come across it before. Visually pads & discs look good, but not had wheels of yet
