    Dear all, having got no further with my DPF nightmare (see separate thread), the garage has informed me that they think the swirl flaps are sticking and that may be the issue. They have freed them as well as they can but not replaced the assembly. As stated before, everything else has been...

    Think my brakes on the 9-3 are sticking a bit as I can't get much more than 45mpg from a tank (its a Tid150). Would the calipers need new pistons to sort with a repair rubbers? Any advice appreciated. Thanks!

    I have searched the forums but can't see the exact symtpoms elsewhere. Every so often the clutch pedal on my 06 9-3 sportwagon 1.9tdi (120) doesn't return up to its correct position. It sticks half way up. It is still useable although the bite point of clutch take up goes down an inch closer to...

    Huzzah, maybe I'm being a bit of a plank, but the gearshift on my 9-3 VS seems to be still across the gate. Shifting up and down the gate is buttery smooth (i.e. 1-2, 3-4 and 5-6) but going 2-3 or 4-5 needs a definite yank, and there's no centering spring. Is this normal?

    Hi all just trying to rectify a sticky gearstick.It wont return to the central position ,i.e. left/right. I think I've traced the problem to the turret mechanism on the gearbox that the cables attach to. Problem is I think it needs to come off to get some lube around it but can I just unbolt...

    Hi, I after yet more advise please. My 95 2.0t airflow seems to have a sticky fifth gear. I have no problem engaging it but it's a little stiff to disengage. There is no horrible crunch or anything, it just needs a good pull to disengage. Any idea?

    Hi, Owned my 2005 9 3 aero conv a couple of weeks now, very happy too :-) The other day, when I dropped the roof, and lowered the windows, the passenger side rear was slow and jerky to go dwon, and back up again later. Has anyone had this before and is there an easy fix? Many thanks, Darren

    I have just bought a '05 9-5 Aero Estate and have noticed that the wiper blades stick when pressing the stork down (i.e. remove mist function) - pressing again makes them complete the full sweep. On the auto functions the wipers work without a problem. Pressing hard down on the stork gets them...

    Hello all, my 05 1.9 tdi vector sport has become very sticky. No problems getting in gear as such but moving the stick across to change up or down is very stiff, even in neutral you need to use a bit of effort to push across. How do you acess it to lubricate it, or is this a bigger problem.

    Slight binding on the nearside rear caliper - both disc and caliper renewed 15,000 miles/one year ago. Only happens when handbrake pulled up hard but failed MOT on it. Adjusted up the handbrake at the caliper last week but can still turn the disc by hand when handbrake off. Sprayed some WD40...
