    Hi, I have a 2005 Saab 9-3 Aero convertible. Problem is that there is no gate in the neutral position when going into reverse. This is a mega problem but its a bit of a pain when selecting 5th. I bought the car like this so I don't know the history of how it got like this but I can tell you...

    Gear lever doesn't centralise anymore, now difficulty selecting 1st gear, have to go into 2nd gear first to get her in, any ideas?

    I just found out I've got 3 bent rims, and belt shifts on three tires. I guess the little shake I felt was not due to a slow leak in the tires ;) And the slow leak was probably due to the bent rims. I'm looking for advice on what to do now...I've found a couple options... I can either: a) get...

    hi there, i am having problems selecting 1st and 2nd when the car is cold. Is there anty adjustment in the linkages or could it just be a much needed gearbox oil change is on the cards? the clutch seems okay and the flywheel and clutch was replaced 15K miles ago. There is no slippage!! after 15...

    Hi all. I have noticed of late that selecting a gear seems to be a bit more catchy when moving through the synchro. The confusing thing is it affects all the gears. Has anyone else come across this? Back in my dim and distant past I used to have an Escort van that exhibited a similar issue...

    This is completely unacceptable, and mixed messages with bids coming in and production resuming on Monday and now this from GM. Now GM is having someone else do their work to “wind down” Saab. If you read between the lines, this is a message to the Swedish Government who still don’t get it. They...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    im havingmajor problems selecting reverse. simply, reverse wont engage the majority of the time. The problem has gotten worse, to the point where i have to think ahead so that i can avoid using reverse at all costs, else i will end up stuck. I had the clutch replaced with a clutch kit, and also...
  9. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have recently found it more and more difficult to select reverse gear. The grating noise is suggesting that the reverse cog is wearing and I am assuming the worst, in that the gearbox will have to come out, a new reverse cog fitted and then re-assembled. Whilst the gearbox is out, I am...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    The other night I got back from work, and each time I tried to select reverse gear, it was like it didn't want to go in. It WOULD go in, but each time there was a kind of graunch and an accompanying strong vibration through the gear lever. It did this several times, even when I first put the...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    There is another thread that touches on this prob a bit but as mine is not quite the same, i hope you don't mind a similar post. Just bought a Dec 93 2.0 LPT. 80% of time from hot or cold, I can't get reverse. If I select 1st or 2nd - and sometimes I have to have a couple of goes at that - I...

    Hi, I have a 95 Aero estate (230bhp) that occasionally (approx. 1 in 5 attempts) when I selcct reverse chrunches the gears. Even If I disengage the clutch and try again it continues to happen. Is this a common fault on our cars? I have the remainder of a used car warranty from Testers Saab...
