    Reading up on this it seems 2003 & some 2004 models are fitted with this contraption. They fail at around 24 months 50k miles and must be changed to prevent the SAI pump from failing. The SAI pump is £300.00 approx so not a chap fix given the value of the cars. The valve was £55.00 approx. The...

    Hi - can anybody tell me if I have any alternative to either ignoring a failed pump or paying Saab £500+ for a new one? There are some secondhand ones available on ebay so I'm wondering if there is a GM (or Volvo, BMW) equivalent but I can't find the Pierburg part no. for Saab anywhere to check...

    Hi. My 2003 9-3 has what appears to be a common fault with the secondary air injuction pump - its failed & expensive to fix. As the SAI system was only on for 2003 models (persumably dropped for being of no use and lots of trouble) I am looking for a way to bypass the fault and put out the...

    I have a 2003 9-3 1.8t which has thrown up a fault which comes out as 'secondary air flow'. I am told this is probably an air pump that blows air into the manifold during cold start up, also here this is a common fault. Is there any simple fix (without major cost)? How criticle is this? If not...

    Hi Guys I am getting a P0411 secondary air injection system incorrect flow detection code on my Saab 9-3 Aero when I start from cold in the mornings. The car runs absolutely fine, even when starting from cold at lunch time. I believe it's probably the air pump, is this an easy, cheap thing to...

    Has anyone changed the Secondary Air Injection Pump ( only on the 03 93 sports sedan), also called a smog pump or air injection pump? I am now aware that this pump has a very common failure due to condensation / excessive water exposure which bypasses a failed check valve further up line. I am...
