    Another post, another niggle. Only a minor one though. Whenever I put the car in reverse the collar lifts up just fine and I park the car and take it out of reverse. However, the collar doesn't drop so when I go to put in first I end up whacking it in reverse again unless I push the collar back...

    Hello guys, I recently bought a SAAB 9-3 Aero Convertible 2004 and noticed that my steering wheel turn a bit to the right while driving. At first I though probably some adjustment is needed but today I noticed that 1 of the wheels (front right) is sticking out (like 20%) more than the rest 3...

    Noticed a bit of brake fade when coming down a very steep hill yesterday. When I stopped the car the front passenger wheel was noticeably hotter than the other three. I am guessing this means a sticking caliper? Are they easy enough to clean-up or am I more likely going to need a new one...

    I have a 2001 9-3 TiD 2.2, manual 5 speed, and the reversing light switch on the transmission has failed for the second time in 20,000 miles. Both occurences are since I fitted a new gearbox. When the switch fails, the plunger on it jams in and the reversing lights stay on even in neutral or...

    Hello Wondered if anyone could advise if my slave or master cylinder has failed, the symptom is that the clutch peddle operates normally when first driven, but starts to stick half way down after a few gear changes. There is a little oil in the footwell and a slight hydraulic oil leak on one of...

    HI everyone, I have a 2002 9-5 aero, 95000 miles. A strange problem which has so far got my Saab mechanic in a fix. It started with the rear right wheel. Travelling at modest speed (30mph) taking a slight right hand turn in the road the rear right wheel stuck. It released almost immediatly...

  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on this. It's not very often i push the clutch pedal all the way down, i normally stop short by a centimetre or 2 as i find that's adequate enough for a smooth gear change. However the other day i had stopped at a set of lights and had...

    I have a 2002 93 convertible. When I open the roof it goes about 25% of the way and then stops, to complete the operation I release and then press the button again and the roof opens all the way. I have had a full read and there are no faults recorded; I've also tried lubing all the joints but...

    Hi, the front brakes on my 2003 9-3 aero 2-0T are sticking but not all the while. Had brakes stripped and all seem to be working fine and garage said if it carrys on it must be master cylinder because that was the only thing left what it could be. anyone else had this problem? Thanks in advance.

    Hi, since my lad left the boot open and i tried to put the hood up as it was raining theres been a problem. The roof when opening stops 3/4 of the way to closing, i have to hit forward on the switch just for a tap then back and it folds down perfect. Same with lifting, tonneau lifts up fine and...
  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Dear All, When I take the igition key out of my wifes 2002 9-5 AERO, it looks like the barrel/assembly is sticking such that the car still thinks the key is in the ignition. Which means when the door is opened I get bonged & the remote locking will not work. I did do a search, but only managed...
