  1. Strange beeping sound

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I was hoping to get some advice on the following. When I reach apron 55 in my Saab 93 2005 auto, I hear a beeping sound not unlike a warning beep for seatbelt unfastened. There are no lights coming on and as the car reaches about 65 the beeping stops. Any ideas anyone?

  4. 2003 9-3 - B207 1,8T Snarling sound...

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all ! My 2003 1,8T makes a snarling sound when revving the engine. The sound comes above 2500 rpm, and only when the rpm are rising quickly... if I keep the rpm steady at any level all the way up to the redline, there is no unnormal sounds. Also at falling rpms it's all good. No codes, no...
  5. Whining sound when engine revs

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi. I recently had my water pump and associated chain replaced at an independent garage. They did something incorrect with balancer shafts and whole car shook, although they corrected the problem so that's good. However, now I have noticed a whining sound that seems to be associated with when...
  6. Engaging clunk sound after pulling away: only after ignition start up

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Folks, Has anybody experienced a clunk sound after pulling away? My car does it i.e. about a second after pulling away when clutch is fully released, although it only does it the first time you pull away after starting ignition. Pulling away at junctions etc, produces no sound. However...
  7. Drivers Door Related issues, no interior light, or audible sound from dash?

    Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Yup, another day, and another request for help. Ever since getting our Saab 9-3 2.0i petrol, 1999, the drivers door doesn't turn on the interior light, nor does the dash make the audible sound when door open. I guess this is related to the door pin switch?

  9. Whistling sound around 1000-1500rpm

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, My Saab 9-3 1.9TiD (2008MY) makes a high pitched whistling or whining sound between around 1000-1500rpm, and seemingly only in lower gears (1-3). (Unless, of course, I just can't hear it in the higher gears as I'm going faster.) Anyone else experience this and have any idea what it could...
  10. No sound from door speakers. Faulty amplifier?

    Saab 9-3 & GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Since a few weeks the front door speakers have stopped working in my 2001 9-3. Taken off the door cards today to replace the speakers and the problems remains with new speakers in place. Taken out the glove compartment and the passenger kick panel to check if all the connectors on the amp are...
  11. Sound reasoning?

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I am quite deaf, to the point of needing hearing aids. I can't hear much at mid and higher frequencies, but am over-sensitive to low frequency sounds. This means that I struggle to hear the radio, especially speech, but road noise is more than apparent. Using my hearing aids helps a lot, but...
  12. Sound Problem

  13. Sound Deadening 2004 9-3 Doors

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    Hi guys, Anybody got any experience with sound deadening doors ? I have purchased some Dynamat with a view to sound deadening the front doors. I am going to do the inner door skin, and also the outer door. I'm not going to bother doing the door card. My problem: on the door, there is a black...
  14. sound - main bearing transmission?

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My Saab 9000 (93) 188.000 kms developped a noise a while ago. It's related to driving speed. A fried who heard it last week said it's a failing main bearing on the transmission (he had similar with his saab 900 many years ago). Is this a known problem? If so, any instructions on how to replace?
  15. Sound System - Saab 93

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, Can anyone tell me how to determine what sound system I have in my 2007 Saab 93 20T Convertible (facelift model). I believe there are 3 types that come factory fitted and mine is one of these. There looks to be 2 speakers in the back, 1 in each door and what looks like 1 either end on...
  16. Name That Sound. Engine in trouble?

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I say "sound", but if I'm honest, it's a noise. And it doesn't sound like a good noise, either. My 9000 CSE Anniversary 2.3 FPT has started making a bad sort of rattling sound in the engine bay. Here's a video of the engine, with the noise. I duck into the car to turn of the air conditioning in...

  18. turn indicator, no sound

    Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I bought my SAAB 900NG (1997) second-hand in 2008. There has never been a ticking sound when I use the turn indicator handle, but that has never really bothered me at all. However, now that my daughter is learning to drive, it would be helpful for me to know that the turn indicator is activated...

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, I own a 1988 Saab 9000 turbo and since I bought the car I have been hearing a whirring noise. It usually only starts once the cars warmed up and doesn't matter what hear I'm in or even sitting idle, I hear a loud persistant whining noise from the drivers seat. I popped the hood and can't...
