  1. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    So today I removed the heat shield on my 9-3 turbo and I'm curious if this could be detrimental. Since the exhaust turbine and manifold are right there (now without heat shield) could this melt the plastic of the fan right there? and could it heat the coolant since there is a reservoir there...
  2. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi all, I recently picked up 900 from the mechanics and soon after discovered a rattling noise coming from the front rhs of the car. On further investigation I think the cause of this is the battery heat shield. It's completely loose and not secured to anything - it's just wedged between the...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Death rattle turns out to be a loose heat shield for the long central exhaust silencer. A quick look suggests the horrid little welded screws have not yet snapped off the floor, but not sure if the shields has rusted out around the nuts, or the nuts have gone AWOL. Has anyone had this before...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)

    9-5 Estate 2005, but I guess they are all the same. The heat shield that sits above the middle silencer has become detatched, apart from one corner. It sits on the silencer and rattles, and may come off altogether at speed. There are 3 or 4 fixing 'studs' down each side, but the heat shield...
  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Saab 9000 Catalytic Converter Heat Shield Fix Just finished this and thought I'd post it up as a reference for others. My main symptom was a rattle between 1000-1500rpm that sounded like bolts in a pan being shaken around. Closer inspection revealed it to be the heat shield on top of the cat...
  7. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Just picked up an OK T8 special edition, but it is missing the battery heat shield/clamp. There is a battery fitted that is just held down by the cables and the there is plenty of clearance, but I don't want to fry it or fail the MOT in September. Anyone got a good picture of the original in...

  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Got an older engine in MY98. Should there be a heat shield between the cat and the sump? There isn't one. Had horrible vision of chip frying adaptor for traffic jams!

  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I've just noticed that I've managed to take a chunk of plastic off the left hand air shield (plastic bit underneath the engine bay, probably done on a curb when parking). Does anyone know whether this will: 1. Make much difference? 2. Be expensive to replace? Cheers
