  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've hit a snag...need flywheel bolt torque settings. i've only a Haynes for the facelift (2009 on) cars, and so no specs for the D308L. anyone got an autodata file for instance?
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi my brother in law recently very kindly passed onto me a 2005 9.3 Linear turbo 150 BHP with 70K on the clock, zero rust which I am very impressed with and interested in maintaining as it look capable of many more years of service for very little money, hence joining the group to learn how?
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Can I just swap the blown 8v engine for a 16v z19dth engine (keeping the manifolds for the 16v engine with it)? Are wiring looms/ecu the same? Thanks in advance.
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    Being that any semi-definitive information regarding MY07 93 EHU swaps is hard to come by, at least for me it was, I want to share what I now know from my local shop: NOTE: This is for MY07 (2007) interior redesign and audio overhaul 93s BOTTOMLINE: IT IS 100% POSSIBLE TO SWAP EHUS THAT HAVE...
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Is it possible to fit 1999 9-5 2.0LPT's manual gearbox, axles, gear-lever assembly & pedal set to 1997 9000CSE 2.3T? Has anyone done similar something?
  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I am still looking for a way to change my autobox to manual (MY1997 9000CSE 2.3FPT Maptun Stg3+). Here in Turkey yet I couldn't find a direct replacement from Saab cause Saabs are quite rare and even dismantlers do not have an idea of the matter. The question is; I have found 3 gearbox which I...
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Just now I have Maptun Stg3+ fitted on my Saab and the auto box finally has died I have found a manual gearbox complete with the axle & clutch assembly from a MY1992 2.0T 9000CD. Apart from the different final drive ratio, would it be an easy swap for MY1997 2.3T 9000CSE Auto?
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Just bought my mates old 2.3T CC (CD front), which he was getting rid of due to its sub-20mpg 'economy'. It has a lot of AR parts fitted with documentation to match, and I intend to use it as a breake for those easily knocked off/broken parts (mirrors etc). It comes with lowered suspension for...
  9. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    I have a spare engine from a 1981 8v turbo. The cylinder head used the normal hex bolts to hold it to the block. Will this head fit my 85 8v turbo that uses the torx type bolts? Is there and difference between these heads? The older engine is in great condition and my car is getting a bit tappetty.
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, after having the groups diagnosis of cracked piston rings or worse confirmed at WMSS, I have started to look for a replacement engine to whack into my 1993 Aero, so I can take the head off the damaged engine to have a look at the bores and see whether that one is beyond repair or not. Now...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Although I like the look of my Aero front seats (black), I do not find them particuarly comfortable. I have just loaned a '97 CSE from Abbott's and found the seats to be preferable, they remind me of my old 9000SE. So, does anyone want to swap a pair of black leather CS seats (circa 97) for a...
  12. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Has anyone out there got rid of a 9-5 and gone back to driving a C900? The T16 is the Saab I have always wanted, but I have never had one, getting a 9000 instead as my first Saab. Due to change in job a year ago my annual mileage is a lot less than it was (used to be 40k+), so am thinking of...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have two Abbott Racing ECU's for 2.3 FPT from 1991 DI/APC 9000's. Both do not have TCS. My 1992 CSE 2.3 FPT DI/APC 9000 has TCS, Would I be able to put one of these in my car ? I have read that some ECU's can only work in non TCS cars, I dont mind losing the TCS system, but what else would I...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Well I got my gearbox from DCA (using a local courier - £35 + VAT which was OK). I need to start getting the bits together that I will need, hence this post. I am going to order an Abbot poly box mount, and I know I need a clutch kit and slave cylinder. That is where I start to get confused...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have just fallen off my chair having read the saab manual outlining how to change the heater motor on a car that has Climate control. Has anybody on here embarked on this task and has a good way of doing it without virtually stripping down the whole car around it ??????????? Dave
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    swapped the scc over from one of my 9000s, from a 1991 cc to a 1993 cs, now everything works only it is very dim with no background light also putting your finger over the light sensor does not do anything. does one of the wires have to be taken from the old analog clock connector to give the...
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hello all, Some local villain screwdrivered the drivers door lock on my 9000 so the key doesn't work in it now, and the central locking is only activated on that side. From removing the handle, I can see that the barrel itself is held in with two Torx screws so is removable. Before I take all...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have been thinking of swapping the T25 on my '92 Griffin out for a TDO4. Has anyone done this and if so; is it worth the expense for the performance increase or should I be considering one of the T3/T4 hybrids? Thanks in advance!
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Well Mark's Bubbles is home, and Mine's now away at chez Abbott. I forgot to tell them about 2nd and 3rd being a bit bauky at times, but I hope that they'll find that. Got to have a look around Bubbles and a quick spin. She certainly pulls nicely but I think I only got it in 4th once. It will...
  20. Saab 99, 90 (1969 - 1984)
    My little pride and joy which has been sitting forlornly on my drive since November rather sick, engine rattly (but not terminal), gearbox detent sprint phuqued (this requires an expensive recon) and been advised to change the engine the same time as I repair the 'box. Starter motor also packed...
