    Hi: New to this site and hope this post is in the right place. I did a search and didn't find anything. My 2001 9-3 SE (135500 miles) has a steering wheel shake from 55mph+ ONLY when accelerating. It is worst at around 70mph. As soon as I stop accelerating, the shake stops. It can cruse at...

    Hi Guys, Yet another question / issue with my 9-3 1.9tdi sportwagon; I had the front shocks changed at the dealer last week, and notice a slight shake in the steering at about 75 – 80mph (obviously on a private road) which then stops above this speed. I have since had new 17 inch Evo (vector...
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi I recently got the GM900 converible (the car i have always wanted) But the handling and creaking are not good. Have been looking round and found a brace for the top mounts and for the underside of the front of the car. The reviews look good but has anyone tried any of these upgrades or is...

    Hi all, I have a 1999 Saab 9-5S 2.3LPT. 105,000km on the clock. It was fully serviced 2500km ago. The other day, upon leaving work, the car started fine, i drove out of the carpark and onto the street, and suddenly my car began to shake quite badly. It is felt through the whole car. There was...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All, I am trying to nail down a shake/vibration problem with my new (to me) 99 Saab 9-5S. When i reach about 105-110km/h, the car starts to vibrate or shake quite a lot. It is felt through the entire car (if you look at the passenger seat you can see it shaking backwards and forwards)...

    Finished cleaning the car interior, washed waxed an polished the exterior, buffed the bumpers and trims, handles and window surrounds. Looks nice but )))CREAKS((( like an old ship. Had this occur every time - with periods in between for comparison I should add. Thought about graphite (and...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I noticed something this morning in my estate on the drive into work. Not sure if it was down to slippy road surfaces or if theres something needs looking at When the car goes over bumps in the road the back end seems to shake from side to side, just a there and back again - not a long lasting...

    I recall sombody telling me that there is an alteration that you can make to the car to eliminate the scuttle shake on the convertbles. Does anyone know what this might me?
  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Have just had new Dunlops SP9000's put on the front, tracking done as I have replaced track rod ends and balancing of course. I am using Eibach springs with OE dampers but am still getting some steering shake at about 60-70 which smooths out a little at 80ish but doesn't fully disappear - car...
  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to tighten up the body / steering column shake on the gm900 conv without spending toooo much money? My 97 2.3 900 is pretty good but could be better.
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    After 6 days of great smooth driving, the Saab curse has finally landed. On the right side of the dash (wood trim) I'm getting a really annoying loud rattle, this can happen at any speed, but normally along uneven roads. If you apply any pressure to the wood trim (around the blank switches) it...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I was driving my 2000 Aero automatic today in the heat...and when going to merge on the freeway at about 50mph, I floor it to send the tranny down to 2nd. It seemed to stop on third gear for a second and hesitate pretty bad. It could have been in 2nd and I didnt realize it, but either way there...

  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I've just bought an M plate 9000 Ecopower with 77k on the clock. It has a couple of things that need sorting though: 1) Slightly lumpy running under light load at between 2 - 3000 Rpm, especially when you then accelerate away again - power delivery is not as smooth as it should be. Also...
