    Hi all, My 2007 9-3 1.9 TID Vector sport estate is giving off black smoke if I drop a gear and floor it. I know it's 10 yrs old . Is there anything else I can do to minimise this smoke from the exhaust.

    Hi all . I have just bought my 2007 saab, hopefully this is a quick resolution. I can't find how to reset the right hand figure. Or in fact what it relates to. I presume it is a tripometre .

    I don't use my car much unfortunately and I know that's not great, but it is what it is. I've replaced my original battery probably about 2 years ago with a Lion 100 (70Ah) High Performance. It was fine for a while, then needed a jump start around May last year. The summer was fine, but then...

    I'm wondering if anyone has any cheaper solutions the way of price......for supply and fit clutch for my car. I'm told that the parts alone cost £600 and the fit is another £400. Seems damn expensive !

    I have had a new thermostat fitted 3 months back and no problems up to now. The heater is working but is warm air only. When on 23 degrees it isn't that warm. Any ideas what the problem could be ?

    Hello to all I've got a new problem with my 9-3. Previously, the climate control had worked perfectly during all of the time that I have owned her. Then, the air con simply stopped working. I took her to local Kwik Fit for a recharge, and this cured it, nice icy air again. This only lasted...
