    So, as part of my preventative maintenance routine, this weekend, I replaced the track rod ends on my Saabillac. My car is now 9 years old and has only done 53k miles, but I noticed during routine checks, that the rubber boots were pretty much flat as pancakes. I knew there was no way in this...

    I've got a 2001 9-3 SE with 106K on it. I recently pulled the spark plugs and the #3 plug tip was touching the electrode - there was no gap. The tip wasn't beaten up, it just looked like it was pressed down. I haven't pulled the oil pan yet to check the bearings, but I'm wondering if bad...

    Hi all, My 2005 9-3 1.9 tid has been suffering from a severe lack of power lately. noticeably up to 2000rpm then it will boost up to 3000rpm before it dies out. I have had a look at the engine and noticed that the rod that links all the swirl valves together has become unattached from the valve...

    Right then, I am now in possesion of my shiney new MOT - i see they have changed the certificate again! My car needed a o/s/f track rod end and front drop-link. After the work was done the steering wheel was 'off' at an odd angle, the track rod end was identical and wound on exactly the same...

    Having struggeled this w/e with replacing a drop link with split bush (not actually too bad) and decided to do the front arb bush while there (bad move, a right PIA) on the offside, I found that there is a little play in the inner track rod joint. I will have to do it at some point before the...

    My 92 (J) convertible is fitted with 17 x 7.5 RVS alloys & Yellow Seas 205 / 40Z R17 84W. I have been trying to remedy a mysterious knocking & have investigated many potential causes. However I have noticed that at the front of the car, the lower suspension arm / track rod? has virtually no...

    Hi guys, Quick question. I had a small bit of damage to one tyre last weekend, resulting in a new set of boots all round. Just what you need at this time of year, though at least it gives a bit more confidence on the roads! Anyway, i wanted to get the tracking done, but one of the track...

    I need what Saab calls the Antenna Rod for the OnStar Telephone at the back of my 2003 Saab convertible. It's really just a black plastic hood, or casing, that encloses the actual antenna. The part number is 5260575. Here in the States it costs a bloody fortune -- around $95 for what amounts to...
