    Hi, My 2005 wagon has been worked on, and while in the shop, the mechanics shut down the alarm system using tech 2. Thealarm system lived a life of its own anyway. When I picked up the car, the tailgate lock motor had stopped working, and the brake light failure message popped up. Is this a...

    Hi My tailgate indicator on the dash shows as open and when I stop and take off, the lock motor cycles but the indicator remains open. Do I need to new tailgate lock, motor or something else? Very annoying hearing this 30 times a day
  4. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003) Above link is now in Archive, which does not seem to accept additions - hence "new" topic. I did mention 'markings' on the SAAB screwdriver, to aid removal of plastic retainer fittings on tailgate. I have now looked at the SAAB...

    Tailgate lock is now erratic. Started staying locked, regardless of using key fob, door panel release, or manual key on tailgate. Then it all seems OK and normal - for a while. Trying the manual key on tailgate was very strange. Turn the key and noise sounds like unlocked OK, but within a second...

    Hi, can anyone help me? I am having rust issues on the tailgate of my 2004 9-5 estate, I have had it repaired twice and it keeps coming back. Can anyone tell me if the panel below the rear window where the Saab badge is, comes as a separate part to the whole tailgate as this is where it is...

    Hello, I can't find this in any so I'll start a new thread, can anyone help please? The silver strip above the number plate on our MY09 93 Sportwagon has broken away and lifted up at one end, it looks like one of the clips which secure it to the tailgate has broken or come away from the strip...

    Hi - hope someone can help. Unfortunately, the few numbers still readable on my parents GM900 900S M Reg tailgate struts don't seem to tally with numbers I can find on suppliers like sgs. Would anyone with a same model please confirm the OEM (or replacement) part numbers please? Thanks in advance

    Hi, the latch has a tiny spring on it which has snapped. So I either need just the spring or the whole assembly. It's fitted to the rear hatch with 3 x 10 mm bolts. I'm at Long Eaton, Notts if that helps.

    My ancient 95 estate tailgate has become very heavy. I guess there must be some support. but if this is by gas struts they must be hidden. Does anyone know how to access and fix this?

    Hi all I have an 06 plated 9-3 sportwagon that has an intermittent issue with the tailgate not opening. Central locking all working ok, drivers door switch and fob button appear to work (indicator lights flash when pressed) but when pressing the switch in the tailgate "handle" I can hear/feel...

    I recently returned to Saab and bought a 2008 Vector Sport Sportwagon Auto (1.9 Tid). I have only had it since Thursday last week but it has what sounds like a creaking or banging from the tailgate. I actually got in the boot while my wife drove around a industrial estate and could hear it. I...

    Hi all, Having spent a fruitless couple of hours on the internet...does anyone have a tailgate handle from a 2001 9-5 estate. Part number 5000013. Thanks

    The lock on my 53 reg 95 estate tailgate has failed. It's stuck on lock - the local Saab dealer can't get it open. If I play with the locking I can (sometimes) hear the lock attempting to work, and then even less frequently it opens/closes. There doesn't seem to be a manual option to use the...

    The card trim on the inside of my tailgate is hanging off. Many of the clips are missing. Looks like there are two types of clip (push-type clips along the top of the card and the screw type around the side and bottom. The receiving points on the tailgate all seem to have the same plastic...

    The joys of Saab ownership continue. The latest episode is that the tailgate (it's a SportWagon) won't open - pressing the button doesn't result in the catch unlatching. It failed yesterday, but somehow fixed itself during a journey last night, and has then stopped working again today, so I'm...
