    Hi guys my 2005 9-5 linear diesel estate has developed an intermittent fast squeak noise and it seems to be worse when turning right. The noise doesn't bother me but sometimes I lose power/hesitate when pulling off at a junction which feels a bit like the traction control cutting in. the...

    Evening all, my steering wheel squeaks randomly, any ideas why? I have a 2005 9-3 hatchback. It is usually at the quarter turn point, and is very common. I have adjusted the steering column, and it helped, but still not gone, any ideas?

    Hi, My 2004 Aero convertable has developed a sqeak or creak when I put the brakes on, just the front ones. I do not have to be moving, just pushing the pedal makes the front creak really quite loud. I had thought it was suspension or roll bar but checked today and could get the creak when...
  5. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    My 1998 93 2.0t convertable has developed a squeak from (I think) the front nearside wheel. It comes after around 6 or 7 miles and gradually becomes louder until the brakes are soon as the brakes are released, the squeak this likely to be a sticking caliper and if so...

    Hi Suspension on my 2004 Aero has just started to squeak going over speed bumps. Wondered if anyone else has had this and whether its likely to be an expensive fix? Thanks

    I have a 1.9 16v 150 engine and recently with the clutch down their is a squeak that dissapears as soon as the clutch is released and in gear or neutral. Could it be an issue with the dual mass flywheel or another issue. Thanks

    Does any one know how to cure a fan squeak from the Air Con? Its not coming from the cabin temp sensor as i unpluged this and the noise from the dash carried on ! It doesnt make a noise when on ECO or when the Fan is on full so i was hoping for a simple repair or drop of oil would help but dont...

    Hi, my drivers seat has started to squeak and so has my seat belt socket when I have my seat belt on, can I squirt WD40 into my seat belt socket without damaging it and does anyone have any ideas of how to stop a seat squeaking? I thought Saab were renowned for the quality of their seats, mine...
  13. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    I think that it's probably the clutch bearing or something to do with it but the symptoms are a high pitched squeal upon letting the clutch in as the car starts to move. It lasts from one to five seconds then disappears. Subsequent starts are less and less squealy. What does the team think...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have a squeak coming from what I think is the back door on the passenger side. I think that this must be the place as this door's uppy downy lock thing (the bit that tells you from the outside if the car is locked or unlocked - know what I mean?) is permanently in the locked position despite...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    When I start my '97 CS i hear a squeaking noise. Fairly faint but persistant and annoying... It also continues after the car is shut down. Is this a blower motor bearing? Fan? Temp sensor? I couldn't find any links but others must have experienced this. Thanks in advance for any links or...
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've got a squeak - and it's annoying. From the driver's seat it sounds as though the noise is coming from the nearside rear. It was not so apparent a couple of weeks ago but seems to be getting more frequent and annoying. Otherwise, the car is squeak and rattle free. The squeak sounds like...

    I get an annoying squeak (from the linkage which carries the pedal action in my RHD car?) each time I de clutch. Can anyone give me a tip on how to get at something to lubricate here? Does it require much lifting of trim & carpet? Thanks Nigel Brittain
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi again Today I got an irritating squeaking noise and I cannot really point where it is coming from. It started on the highway when I was doing 110km. Went on until I took a break 150 km later. Then it stopped for about 40 kilometers (25 minutes) and resumed to a lesser degree. The squeaking...
