    I've just got a rear snap coil spring, so I need to replace. I've ordered 2x new coil springs, but do I need to order any new rubber, bolts, etc? I've got a socket set with E18 which I think from reading is what the Torx bolt at the hub end is, usually can you reuse the same bolt or will it...

    After thorough investigation with friends yesterday I have deduced that it's time to replace the front struts and springs being that the springs were literally hanging around the strut not doing anything and on the left side the spring wasn't even on the strut tower:mad:. Any tips or tricks I...

    I was trying to locate a squeak and put my finger towards the back of the ashtray where it then got trapped between the top of the unit and the brass spring thing (green circle) seen in the picture. Eventually I managed to get my finger out but the spring thing fell out of its holder, now I...

  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have had some problems with my car (2001 2.0T HOT Aero 205bhp) recently but as she only has 102k and is in good condition I wanted to keep it. So I had the head gasket done 1000 miles ago and 2 weeks ago the Aircon pump ceased taking out the tensioners when the belt went. So after two big...

    Had a Chevy dealer (Still does Saab work) in Springfield MO USA diagnose a metal clunking sound as a broken spring. Quoted 800.00 US dollars to do the work for both side of the front. It seems as all the threads on this were pre-2012. I am sure they won't do the work for free now. Is there a...

    I have been unlucky and went over a pot hole and immediately heard a 'boing' after only having the car 4 days. Turned out I broke a spring. I have had it replaced along with the drop link which had some play in it. It is now giving a knock after driving over every little bump or imperfection in...
