    Guys, When preparing the Cabrio I'm stripping I decided to drain out any remaining petrol in the tank before I have the remains taken to a scrapper. In the past I have done this by accessing the top of the tank, breaking into the petrol line with a tube to a container and wiring the pump...

I have a spare that I've cleaned up but want to check that the solenoid works o.k. Also don't know which terminal is earth -...

    Hello! Is there a way of testing SID II (from 9-3OG) without connecting it to the car? I mean a way to light up all the pixels on table? I have found a way to replace the faulty original cable with self made cable. My SID was complete mess, and with my modifications it works 95% but there are...

    My mates from CarAdvice.com.au have picked up some more photos of that Saab 9-4x testing in Michigan. Click on through to see the full shots. The car is rather heavily clad and you can’t make out much, but when has that ever stopped us? The costume on this one is slightly different. It...

    While in Boston this week, we “social media” journos hacks were treated to a comprehensive presentation about the Haldex XWD system and why it’s an important development for Saab in its core markets: Northern Europe and the Northeastern US. The reason: it’s great in wet and snowy conditions...

    I woke up to this in my inbox this morning from Saab USA. It’s been a fascinating learning experience but I think they’ll shed no tears if we move on to other topics…. <blockquote>Saab, nor GM have ever conducted crash tests using cadavers. We do not even have the facilities/capability in...
