    Hi Folks, My 9.3X AWD was bought from an ex-Saab franchise dealer who owned it from new and it came with 225/50/17 Michelin Primacy tyres. It's now in need of new boots but every time I put the reg no into a tyre supplier website, it gets the car spot-on but it quotes a different size such as...

    Rear pads getting low and the disks are a bit lipped and past their best, might as well do the disk and pads at the same time. it seems there are also several sizes of rear pads/disks! My car is an auto and fitted with the largest std size 314mm (from memory) front disks, seems logical the...

    Hi everyone, boring question but I'm looking to get a steering wheel cover for my 9-3 aero (53 plate) but the wheel is bigger than cars I have had in the past therefore my cover doesn't fit. After looking on Amazon, cover sizes are not specified and "universal size - fits all" seems to be common...

    Hi I have just gone to order some new tyres for my car a 2008 AERO TTiD on 17s The back of the manual says either 225/45/R17 94 W or 235/45/R17 94 W Which is the best ? If I understand it correctly the difference is the side wall height ? Just don't understand the consequences.... I will...

    The wife's 9-3's stereo is a little 'tinny' to say the least. Especially compared to her old TT with Bose and my current BMW 5. I've just taken it to my local car audio place in Grimsby to see what they suggested and I've been quoted £545 for them to fit new front components (tweeters in dash...
  9. New Saab 9-5 (2010 - on)
    Hello all, I'm trying to find out what the actual alloy sizes are that will fit the new generation 9-5 Aero so I can get a set of winter tyres + alloys. I've got the tyre sizes from the manual and I'm pretty happy with that but there's no info about the full alloy size and stud pattern...

    Whilst on a Vauxhall Vectra forum I created a matrix showing the relationship between engine size and brake disk diameters, so people could easilly find out what size their disks are, rather than have a constant stream of new threads asking the same question. Here's a copy of it (to see a...

    Hi All Realise this has been done to death, but my Aero is close to needing new front tyres. At the moment its fitted all round with Michelin Pilot Exalto's at 215/45/ZR17, with the rears being fairly new. But I don't mind replacing all four I would really like to improve the ride and reduce...

    Does anyone know where I might find a chart or... that lists the fastener sizes for this engine. I need to remove a cylinder head this weekend, and I would like to know if might find any surprises. :confused: Thanks for any thoughts
  13. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi all, Just wondering if anyone knows the threading and size of the Banjo bolts used on the C900 fuel rail. Secondly, does anyone know if the square 9000 fuel rail is directly swappable with the tubular type? Many thanks.

    I did have another thread going whereby I asked where I might find some black badge vinyl overlays to sit on top of the existing badges and wheel centre caps. I may have found somebody who can do a 'suite' of the 7 badges (4x wheel caps, 1x boot, 1x bonnet and 1x steering) on protected vinyl...

    Hi, I'm new here folks. Hope you can help. I have a 2003 Saab 93 convertible with 17 inch 6 spoke alloy wheels and am planning to replace them with a set of 17 inch 10 spoke alloys from a 95 aero.
