  1. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Basically my 2001 9-3 RHD convertible is stuck in P unless I use the override (bodge key, screwdriver etc. into the rectangular recess next to the shifter). Obviously I'd like to eliminate the easy options first, so I've started looking for the relay which is responsible. However, this is...
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello, In my 1997 9000 auto, the auto gear selector lever was removable. There was a small screw at the base of the rubber-like handle, which when loosened, enabled the gear selector stick to be pulled off. I have just acquired a 2007 9-5 Dame auto but I can see no evidence that the...

    Here is what I did to replace the shift boot on my ’05 Aero. To begin, you should separate the shift knob from the reverse lockout. The reverse lockout clips to the shaft knob with three retaining clips. Insert three very small screwdrivers between the shift lock out and the knob. Xcelite...

    Hello, I,m looking for tips on making my 2003 Aero 170k shift smoother. Understand I have to feel when its ready to go into gear but I'm sure there is ways to make it better. Thanks in advance. K

    So I really like the hirsch parts, but I'm not interested in paying a GIGANTIC amount of money for a part. So after reading up on the forum I found the german dealer that supplies parts and as a matter of test, I ordered the shift cover. It arrived about 2 days ago, and I can say/ I'm very...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Now that the weather is so cold, my 1999 9-3, auto trans. will shudder and stall when first started. It only does it when stone cold on a cold day (roughly below 35 degrees F). It starts just fine and when shifted into reverse or drive, or from reverse to drive, shudders and stalls. It's like...
  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    So recently I removed the old shift knob that had broken loose and installed a new shift knob. Everything went well until a few days later when I tried to shift into fifth gear and it would not work. It won't shift into 5th even when stopped so I was a little concerned that all of the pulling...

    Hey! i had a 2004 saab 93 aero that got involved into a car accident that i parted out. I purchased and 03 saab 93 vector with a bad 6 speed manual transmission. I took the transmission from my aero that got involved int the car accident and installed it in the vector now the transmission won't...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I'm new here and not particularly knowledgeable, but all advice gratefully received! The gear stick in my '08 Saab 9-3 1.9ttid has recently felt looser side-to-side than usual - not a massive amount of play, but perhaps around 1cm either way. Gears all select fine and no other issues...

  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Help... The auto shift linkage cable on my 2000 93 SE Conv. needs to replaced. I have the console apart, but I can't seem to remove the last several pieces to gain access to the cable. Do I have to remove the shift lever? Can someone point me to link or web site where I can find the dis-assembly...
  12. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    My name is Steve Raj and I just bought a 92 900 16V non-turbo. I also owned a 87 900 that was retired with >300K on the clock (had to make room for the 92) so the 92 has this anoying shift up indicator that I seem to remember on my 87 - I know that I disabled it somehow but cannot remember how I...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My 9-5 auto has yet another niggly little problem - namely there's no backlight for the gear shift. Is this likely to be a blown fuse? If not, is it something a simpleton can fix?
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Guys, Now I've picked up a spare gear lever and mounting, I'm thinking about a DIY short-shifter modification. The pivot ball is secured to the shaft by 2 circlips, I can machine some new grooves on the shaft to move the ball up a bit, but by how much ? What else is needed, eg, reverse interlock...
  15. Saabscene: Performance
    I just tuned my car with BSR PPC Stage 1. Mine's a 9-5 2.0t, all stock. Once tuned, the gears shifts are very erratic. 3rd gear kicks in at 3.5K RPM, 4th at 4.5k RPM and these are all under normal load and very gradual acceleration. Even 5th gear comes in at 4K RPM. In a very small city like...

    Hi all I have a 96 wagon with a V4 shifter on the column. I have a transmission and a shifter from a 1973 sonnet and I would like to convert the shifter of the 96 to the floor. Have any one out there attempted that conversion or do any one know where I could obtain information to complete...
