  1. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    My wife's 93MY 900SE has a tendency to clunk going from 4th to 5th - not a grinding of gears, just a crunch in the gearchange. The merest pause in neutral and the shift is smooth. It has recently started to do the same from 1st to 2nd. Has anyone any ideas on what the problem could be, and how...

    I recently acquired a 2003 9-3 Convertible with with 39,000 miles. It's an automatic. My latest problem is that if you attempt to select drive, neutral, or reverse it's an extremely "sloppy" feeling when selecting them.They all feel like they are mushed together when moving the shifter and not...

    Hi People, I'm new here and I have a problem with my 93 1.9CDTi 150. The gearstick has recently become very tight to move,especially 1st,2nd and reverse. Is it the gear selector mechanism on top of the gearbox as I've heard it might be. Two questions, is it easy enough to remove without causing...

    Saab 9-5 2.3 Manual 1999 140,000 miles. Hopefully someone may have fixed this without taking out the gearbox. My problem is selecting reverse gear. All other gears are fine. When I try to select reverse it seems to baulk before going into gear. It just will not move the last few mm No grinding...

  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I am experiencing difficulties in selecting gears, especially reverse and 3rd to 2nd. More recently other gears are also proving problematic. (this appears worse if I've left the car standing for a week or more - holidays etc.) I have to slightly lift the reverse selector to even get it into...

    MY99 9-5 2.0 manual My gear shift transverse movement is excessive to the right making changing up 4th to 5th something of an art The lever seems to overshoot the placement where you push forward for 5th. Has something broken off? , a stop perhaps, or is there something more sinister inside the...

  12. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    The gearbox on my MY90 T16S has a couple of small selection problems - first, 5th can be hard to find, and it's very easy to go right across, missing fifth, and bring on the reversing light, which can be a bit disconcerting for anyone behind me! Second, you don't have to lift the locking ring...

    Morning folks, I have bought a lovely CS 2.3 Turbo-S (MY '92) whilst I source another cylinder head for my '92 CS Carlsson. The gear stick appears to have too much sideways movement on it, but it selects gears fine with the exception of 5th, whereby I have to gently lift the reverse 'collar' to...

    Hi all I posted a while ago with this problem, it has now got worse with new symptoms. It is difficult to select 5th gear without it crunching. It jumps out of reverse all the time and 2nd is occasionally noisy to engage. The car in question is a 1993 LPT (but Abbotted) convertible 900. It...

    Hi, I have a slight problem on my 1995 900se turbo with the gear selector. I can go into reverse without having to use the lifter on the selector and also 5th is a pain to get to. It is due to a white plastic guide being broken. When you lift the gaiter fabric on the selector you can see...
