  1. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Gentlemen, I am new to this forum, but I have had my fair share of Saab issues in last couple of years, and I thought I could share one of my quick'n'dirty tricks. Your turbocharger craps itself - sudden bearing failure - oil seeps into intake/exhaust, lots of blue smoke.. you know the drill...
  2. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    The bulbs that were initially fitted to my '96 CSE only seemed to reflect off of road signs, they didn't light up any patches of light in front of the car. I changed to some Philips Xtreme Vision H1 bulbs yesterday that were a bit better, but I think that at the very least I need the beam...

    If you have any problems with your TWICE unit ( getting water on it or etc .. ) make sure your Motorola EEProm on it is still intact ( you can check it .. if it doesnt have any cracks or bubbles ) Get a spare TWICE unit .. ONLY the TWICE unit .. no keys are needed and un-solder the EEPROM from...

    The vents are so frustrating. ... Anyone have any advice for mounting a phone? I was thinking of a brodit faceplate and then an attachment of some kind. . How do others do it?
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi All. Been getting some help on an minor issue on my 1991 9000CS which I bought as an MOT failure for £135. Failed on 4 things and did three of them in an hour. The slightly longer one to solve was the faded headlamps. I am posting this remedy as I keeps seeing the same issue being raised...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Ah hah! Not sure if this is a Eureka moment or if it's simply further evidence of my contracting "Granny" (She had senile-dementia) :crazy: Was sitting in the car this morning, iPhone plugged into the Aux hoping I could finally find a solution to the hiss and interference problem that would...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi there, Having searched the forums for ideas, I am now more confused that I started. I've got a 9-5 Aero Saloon from 2006 (dame edna model) with no sat nav, and an aux in on the head unit. I am looking for a solution for getting a bluetooth handfree kit (this is really the most important...

    Hi there, Need some advice on a product I have found and believe to be a solution for the poor audio I have in my 93 2005, Currently has ICM1 with the 4 speaker system. I am looking of a way to install after market amps into the factory system and believe I have found the answer...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My 2003 Aero started exhibiting the pulsing under light braking recently. Research said it could be the ABS ring on the CV joints broken or cracked. O/S Wheel duly off and checked but on prodding the ring came away and stayed there - you can't remove it in situ! ABS lights etc on dash now -...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    After the loss of power problem, 3 trips to the (useless) garage, 3 breakdowns and now the 2nd EGR valve it started playing up again today. Could not accelerate up a hill on the motorway so I pulled over and stopped the car. Restarted after a minute and gave the car a blast down the slip road...
  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi everyone - my first post! I've read about the pain people are having with this issue so I hope this post may help some others who also want a solution. Recently I bought a second-hand Saab 9-3 Linear Sports Sedan MY2007 and was very annoyed to find when I got it home that Bluetooth was not...

    I have a 2007 9-3 vert, with the newer dash design. A couple of years ago I tried to have a Parrot 3100 installed but the friend doing it couldnt get the right adapters or something (it was 2 yrs ago) and it never happened - I subsequently gave away my Parrot to my father instead.... I just saw...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Judging by other posts, it looks like I have a faulty ABS module. Here is what I found out to fix it: - Saab wants to change the whole ABS pump/electronic controller (Bosch5.3?) and charge me £1800 for the privilege - A chap on e-bay sells reconditioned modules for about £120. They need...

    If you believe recent news reports then ethanol is responsible for expensive tortillas, hungry cows, unmanageable fires, endangered animals, global corning, high taxes, rabid dogs, Hillary, and that itch in the middle of your back that you can’t quite reach. Of course, the truth is buried deep...

  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I recently had my alternator die on me and in these cars the distance you can travel on the power in your battery is not too great. Anyway I looked into getting my alternator reconditioned and refitted and I was quoted at non-SAAB dealer workshops around $400 Aussie. Not good enough I thought...

    Anyone know if there is a SatNav solution that will provide driver directions but also provide info to the office as to where the unit is?
  18. Saabscene: Performance
    Some of you may know I've been chasing a problem with variable perfomance on my 9k (MY93 Trionic)for some time now (over a year!). We've tried allsorts... ECU remaps, various different hardware changes etc, all to no avail. One day it'll go like stink, the other it's comparatively gutless. Most...

    I have to say the guys at WMSS are geniuses Remeber the endless lack of I kept asking about here? I've been trying for ages to get my car up to them (it's about 150 miles) and finally managed to do it. They've fitted a 3" downpipe and cat to match my 3" catback system, sorted out the...
