    Hi all My gear stick has suddenly got noticeably stiffer and struggles to get into gear as easily as it did. Is this likely to be a gearbox or gear linkage problem? Any ideas how easily it would be to fix? Thanks!

    My gear stick appears to be getting stiffer. Its a six speed box fitted to a 2005 Tid 150. Any ideas of how to improve?

    I have an 07 plate, 93, 1.9 Diesel Sportswagon (estate). I have had it for a couple of years, buying with 48k on the clock and I am now sitting on around 88k with a cam-belt change due at around 90k. I have had an issue with a noisey DMF on start-up (from warm) in the past, or at least, that is...

    Hi, I would really appreciate it if someone could advise how I remove the gear stick gaiter (the leather cover thing) from my manual 2005 55 plate Saab 93 1.9 TiD. The leather is worn and is in need of replacement. Many Thanks

    My mother's 2005 SAAB gear shift stick is completely loose and will not shift out of park. She got a ride home so the car is still up at her work. I'm willing to go up there and fix it if possible or else it has to be towed somewhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    My 2001 9-3 Aero may have an issue, not sure. On acceleration and deceleration the gear stick moves approx 2.5cm forward and then back, particularly under hard acceleration. Is this normal or something to do with the gearbox mounts? There are no undue vibrations at all when driving, changing...

    I am the world's worse when it comes to all things mechanical . I have a 2005 1.9 TiD Saab 93 estate, the gear knob keeps springing off when driving what can I do about it other than cross me fingers when a gear change is needed mid jourmey.

    My 2007 93 1.9 Tid has post christmas developed a block on first gear. I can only select it if I select 2nd first and then go to 1st or if the car is still moving (coming up to lights). Today it also failed to centralise and had the embarrassment of gonig into 1st instead of third on joining a...

    Having landed myself a bargin vert yesterday I am busily sorting minor niggles today. One of these is that the rubber gaitor is torn quite badly. I have a donner car so can replace easily just cant figure out how to get the wretched thing off surely its not that difficult!

    Had my 9-5 tdi saloon for about 3 months now, 2005 model - pre facelift 63k miles Full service history I've probably done around 3k miles in it so far. Have a long journey tomorrow so thought id check the oil, last drove the car almost 3 hours ago and its on a reasonably level surface...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    The cap of my gear knob has come unstuck! It came off yesterday - has anyone had this happen before? The glue used to stick it down has become very soft and tacky. Does it need to be removable in future (e.g. to remove gearstick) or can I find something that will stick it back in place...

    My 2006 9-3 sportwagon gear stick is very stiff and doesn't really centre itself. Has anyone else experienced this? It's like driving a race car.

    Hi all. I have a 04 9-3 auto vert and I think it has developed a leak in the auto. There seems to be light oil drips on the garage floor where it is parked. I read in the workshop manual that there is a dipstick for the auto and its got a photo of it [only the dipstick though] but I cant seem to...

    Well that's it i'm done...spent most of the afternoon at PCthugs trying to solve my cars problem. It shows the P1901 code (a well used code on this site) which really could be anything (particle sensor/egr/etc etc). The engine light was removed and the car was great until 4 miles up the road and...

    Hi all, please forgive me if this has already been covered but I couldn't find it. My 2006 9-3 Linear has just developed an odd gearbox problem. The gear lever no longer returns to it's usual rest position (ie between 3rd & 4th), it no longer seems spring-loaded. :confused: Gears still...

    I was driving along and the gear stick just popped off, slightly dangerous!!! anyway, I grabbed it and shoved it back on and pressed down. Seemed okay now! Then it happened again last night! Is there a way this clips / locks in to stay on?
  20. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi ladies and gents, I am wondering what is wrong with my car now. If i give it some welly in 3rd to get past something (BMW for instance) and lift off, the gear stick vibrates a lot, and i can clearly hear it vibrating and feel it wobbling. It also does it if i am...
