  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've been having battery drain problems with my newly acquired '06 9-5 with almost 200K. According to the dealer, the battery is new - and I've verified that it can be charged. All door and trunk switches seem OK. and no lights are left on. The alarm LED stays on all the time, even with car...
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, I have a 2001 93 SE Turbo. Was wondering if it is possible to replace the space saver wheel with a full-sized wheel in the compartment, as I don't like the idea of the smaller wheel. Will the full size fit or do I need to change the compartment?
  4. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hey all. I needed to pack a few bit and pieces for our trip to south of France (if you did not already know about it..... ;) and as we had bedding, towels etc to store and that space is at a premium, i had the idea to pack the lower part of the boot nice and tight (with soft top bag undone) then...

    My son has a 53 plate 9-5 saloon which he bought a couple of years ago and until now he has never had to use the spare wheel. The problem is that this car has 17" wheels which we believe was an original upgrade when bought by the first owner but the space saver spare, which appears never to...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, Few months ago I saw a report on the news that some garages (due to the recession) started to let the workshop space (with car lift and tools and stuff) to customers on an hourly basis. I thought the idea is brilliant as I could do some minor jobs myself. I tried to find some more info...

  9. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, just a quick question. I fitted 308mm discs a while ago and the thought occured to me the other day what would happen if i need the spare :crazy: Would it fit over my bigger brakes , 2001 93. Just wondered if the s/saver wheel was std with mine and the viggen? I suppose i could go out...

    With thanks to Kroum for the heads-up, here’s a quick video of Per Eklund giving demo drives of the Turbo in northern Sweden. It’s quite amazing how he can just cruise at these speeds on ice. Everything looks stable, quite unshaken. It’s also pretty cool how the lights illuminate the road...

    Hi there, Am looking for a Saab cargo space divider for my 2005 9-5 estate (actually, it's for our dog so he doesn't get squashed by all the junk we carry on family holidays!). To clarify, this is the divider that splits the boot space, not the dog guard that goes between the boot and rear...

  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi guys : Apologies for this as I know I've read a post on it B4, but can't find it via the search... Can anyone tell me what size wheel & tyre combination will fit in the boot as an improvement on the ridiculous space saver spare. Many thanks H

  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Well, I was checking my tyre pressures down at Asda yesterday, and noticed all the pressures were down a bit, so I duly filled them up!! (I must change those crusty cracked tyres at the front a.s.a.p. ) Anyway, I decided to check (probably for the first time) the space saver as well. It...

    I have a 9-5 MY02 saloon with 19" wheels and 235x35 tyres and I am in need of a correctly sized spare wheel in case of an emergency. According to tyre calc the total size of the 19" wheel is 25.48" or 647mm. Do any of you guys know the size of the spare wheel well in the boot of a MY02 9-5...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    After my interesting drive yesterday I put the space saver on rather than leave the car on the jack while I got the rim and tyre checked I was horrified at the angle the car was at once back on the ground, I cannot believe those things are safe and certainly wouldn't want to drive on one...

    Where can I buy web space to host pictures? I'm sick of Fotango and other hosting sites not working, so figure I'd be better paying for some. Any ideas on who to use and how much? Not millions of photo's - just the odd photo to add to posts on this and other boards. Ta.
