    Hello everybody. I have a squeal on changing up 2 to 3 and on the odd time 3 to 4. I've read other similar posts and I'm guessing the prognosis is not going to be good. The oil is brown and smells burnt. The car is a 2.0 lpt with 145k on the clock. The difference between my car and the other...

    I wonder if anyone can help? I have bought a Saab 93 TiD Sportwagon and the drivers side window squeals rather a lot when it is going up and down. All the others are fine and I the garage has lubricated all the parts and used some silicone spray but it still squeals. Any ideas / is this...

    Hi Guys, I am a proud new owner of my first SAAB. I got it about 3 weeks ago - a 2006 2.3t Estate with 18K on clock. I just love it. Just one question - over last few days I have noticed a screech / squeal from the engine. Dealer asked me to pop in next Saturday so they can look at it, but...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    This is new for me and i hope someone can help! I have a 95 estate 2.0t 52 plate. Recently and with the onset of the colder British weather i have become somewhat embarrased by the screaching (some may call it squealling) noise eminating from my engine bay when the car is started. The noise...
  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, upon letting the clutch out on my 9-3 2001 2.0T SE i get a squeal sound and can feel it through the peddle. I'm assuming is the release bearing, if i'm right is this a gbox out job and whats the rough cost of a release bearing? Many Thanks, Lee

    I don't know if anybody else is experiencing this annoying noise. The car is supposed to turn heads but not because of noise being generated on reversing. I have a 9.3 Aero auto Sport on a 53 plate which has low mileage. Problem is when reversing off drive or from a parking space or reversing in...

    Hi Got myself a 2001 93 tid (125bhp). Since ive owned the car, its squealed when pulling away in 1st gear....during clutch slip. Thought it was the drive belt, however, this has been changed and made no difference. Could the clutch itself cause a squeal ........ ? Only happens when pulling...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Whenever i put the steering through a left or right hard-over on my 98 9-5 i get this loud squeal and rattle. The squeal is obviously the belt under strain. The rattle i think is the Belt Tensioner although the engine seems to stutter under an invisible load. (Only happens when at idle and...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    When I apply my brakes when reversing, they squeal quite loudly. When I apply them going forwards they squeal only if I'm also turning, but not if I'm in a straight line. I can't tell which wheel(s) it's coming from. Anyone know the cause? I know I could get the dealer to fix it, but if there's...
  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Bought myself a 1997 900SE Talladega Convertible(My first Saab) on Sunday, all seemed ok during the test drive, a slight clutch judder, but thought that was due to me being used to a much heavier clutch. However, today, having done nearly 200 miles ince buying the car the clutch suddenly...
  14. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    What's that likley to be? I only notice it at low speed, generally when turning. Will go silent if i apply the brakes but comes back when I release the brakes. I think PompeyPete has mentioned the same thing. Am I being a mechanical dunce - is this something really obvious (and, please, cheap?)
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    You know the high screech you can hear sometimes when your braking?? Does anyone know what causes it?? I remember years ago you used to buy little tin plates which you put in between your pads and calipers which were supposed to stop this, but never heard of anyone doing this anymore. I have...

    I put my car into the garage to have the belt tensioner replaced. Before it went in, there was a squeal under normal acceleration. This occurs in low revs in 2nd,3rd, and 4th, ie 1500rpm +. The belt and tensioner are now replaced and the squeal had dissappeared until after about 20 minutes...
