  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    So, some of you dads may get a chuckle out of this... I've got this project car I've inherited. The teen owner is still a few clues shy of a full box, but typical teenager. The vacuum leaks are repaired sort of, but he knows he needs a new O2 sensor. Anyway, Saturday night, planning on...

  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi All I Tried to replace the bonnet badge on my 2002 9-3 aero vert yesterday as I got a lovely brand new genuine Saab one to replace the old faded and scratched original. I purchased a trim removal tool from ebay and set about very carefully prising up the badge a little at a time working...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Saab Aero 2.0t 53 185 000 miles. Sorry guy's this has taken some time but just a little more advice would be most helpful. I was losing coolant, but the engine ran at the normal temp. Garage did a pressure test and a 'sniff test' and the results were about normal. I can see some fresh...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have used this forum a lot to read some great information and wanted to post my own experience with replacing a lost 2003 9-5 (Australian year model) 3 button Transponder Key. I also have some remaining unnanswered questions and want to highlight that the many answers out there may not be...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Ok, so here's the story... Bought a 2.2 tdi, 2001 for not too much, because it was juddering and black smoke was coming out. Tried a few things which didn't work, then eventually took it to Saab. They diagnosed a faulty intercooler. I had a 2nd hand one put on - same problem, juddering at...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)

  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    So the RAC man got me going. I went to a SAAB garage who confirmed that everything seemed normal. Anybody ever tried to get out of Fort William in the middle of a train strike. Buses don't suit, how to travel in Irl. The mind uis well and truly boggled. If only it had stayed broken in Perth
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)

  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    To all those who feel their 2.0 clutch would do with an upgrade due to a bit uprated engine. Right, after frying 2 friction plates I decided to upgrate to 2.3 clutch. If you want to follow suit bear in mind: -the bigger clutch (240mm vs. 228mm dia.) requires redrilling 2.0 flywheel to...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    So - changing my TD04 on the 9k Aero Turbo for a recon clipped 18T version I recently acquired.... All in readiness for my Maptun tuning session this weekend. Anyway - So far I have managed to remove the old one and I followed BillJs excellent report on the topic but I'd say that generally...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    You may have read the post about the suspension bush/smoke/flashing CEL which you helpfully solved. Well, another holiday, another tow truck. This time after replacing the breather tubes and re-routing the vacuum pipes from my previous post and giving the car the once over, I set off for the...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi I have an LPG 2001 Aero Auto. 1. The car has a flashing engine management light on hard acceleration. Anyone else had this problem and what was it? The fault light is on all the time anyway as a result of a faulty knock sensor but this particular aspect is new. 2. I had to have the car...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Well. Picked up the Black Beauty from a certain main dealership in Huddersfield around midday and drove back to Halifax, had lunch, did a couple of chores driving around town and ended up parked outside M&S. A little red triangle had come on the dash and a very sweet 'bong' was heard, but the...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hello guys (and girls), It's been a while since I've posted here, but in that time, my transmission got fixed (turns out it was a $2 governor seal that was causing all kinds of problems...), and my car is running very nicely. My question is this: I've got a 1990 9000i automatic, with the...

  18. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    On Saturday ma, pa and the 2 little 'uns headed out for the day with the intention of getting ourselves a newer car. The desirable model was obviously a Saab, preferably a 9-3 diesel, but other variations on the Saab theme would be considered. Our first port of call was a large establishment...

    As some of you know, I'm a great proponent of Gislaved tyres, for the 9000 at least. Traction in wet and dry is excellent - never let me down - and there's no road noise to speak of. Most importantly the price is excellent. Wear is pretty good too: even with "spirited" driving, I get about...
