    So...I bought the wife a 2008 Ttid Aero Sportwagon few days ago. Was ringing round for quotes on a cambelt and waterpump change. Rang one garage who told I should get rid as parts are becoming difficult to source and cars tend to be lying around for ages due to having to wait. This is a "saab...
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have just removed a CARK-91 from by 2001 9-3 vert using a gold old pair of wire cutters and a screwdriver. All seemed to be fine until I turned the car back on. It dives fine all the electrics work, but now I am getting a message on the SID saying telephone. I am right in assumng it thinks the...

  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    The car's a '54 MY05 2.3 lpt Vector auto, with Hirsch upgrade to 220 bhp, (and Hirsch suspension, but that's irrelevant). Done 75k, dealer service 3k ago, passed MOT 2 weeks ago no problems, emissions comfortably inside limits. Oil and coolant levels fine, no sign of any leaks anywhere, no...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Been having a few issues with the car for a while now. Got a 2.2TiD 53 plate 93 ARC. Every few hundred miles the emmissions / check engine light appears. No obvious loss of power, but major drops in economy. Then, 100 or so miles later, sorts itself out again! Now, last few weeks it's been...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Can someone please explain how to remove the tray with the jack and wheel brace etc on an 06 Sportswagon? The tray seems to be trapped by the load deck above, and locked in horizontally by lugs so it won't slide out! Thanks.
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all I have just picked up an 08 plate 93 convertible. I'm a little confused by the 'A/C Off' switch. When the light on the button is illumated is the air con on or off ?? :confused: Thanks in advance
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Feel really stupid asking this but my car (saloon 2.0 airflow) failed its MOT on a blown numberplate bulb. Went to change it and both the lenses look like they are riveted in place. Handbook simply says remove the screws and replace bulb (picture shows what to do) but as I don't seem to have any...

  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I can't believe that the Saab engineers are so stupid as to do some of the things that I've seen on my 9-5, I bought the car with k35 miles on it, it has k84 on it now, has aways had 3000 mile oil changes on it and still had lifter noise, pulled the sump yesterday and found that the pickup...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    ...with all the continual worry that surrounds the possibility of fatal damage to our engines from sludge blocking the oil strainer, why not just remove it or at least replace it with a wider gauge strainer. Would doing so in either case create a greater potential for problems than we currently...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Recently changed the oil but didn't have a fresh oil filter. I've now got an oil filter, but can I fit it without all the new oil pouring out

    Forgive me, but I need to rant. A couple of weeks ago, my dopey brother-in-law borrowed our car to take the dog for a walk at a local beauty spot. While there, he managed to lose the keys, with a key for the Saab and the Golf as well as several house keys. I went out to rescue him, and we...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Have to say I think i'm going to remove my induction kit and strut brace. I can get fully comp insurance from Privilege for £237 if I don't want a hire car. Bell Direct want £287 for the air filter mod. Adrian Flux want £353 for air filter and brace. I'm not throwing the car around corners...
