  1. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi Guys, I've got a chance to use a shed for a few weeks, I'm just not sure if I can get Saabrina the teenage *itch into it. It's about 14' by 20' with a 7' door at the end of the 20' wall. I figure that I need to turn the car through 90 degrees to get to the middle of the shed so that I can...
  2. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, i recently had some exhaust studs replaced on my 2002 9-3 Aero and to do the work, as some had snapped, they had to take the head off and do it on the bench. This was all carried out fine and when i picked the car up (engine slightly warm) all seemed fine. However, the next day when i...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    When I go around a tight left hand corner (usually on a negative camber, small roundabout on the way to work) the brake and warning lights come on for a second or so, accompanied by a bing bong sound. Does this mean that the discs or pads are wearing out, or could it be something more dangerous...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Having checked and cleared the drains on the sunroof it looks like the seal itself is to blame. With heavy rainfall there are drips of water still coming in, inspecting the seal shows it to be breaking up a little around the edges. Does anyone know of any products that may re-generate the...
  5. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    The manual heater temperature and direction control knobs on my 9-3 are very tight. It is hard to turn them and when they are finally turned they do not stay in position as if something is stuck behind. What can it be? the car is a 2000 year model with only 34k miles on it with one owner and I...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Would a tensioner pulley that is too tight on my serpentine belt prevent the car from starting? I recently had the tensioner pulley's and serpentine belt replced on my 2001 9-3. Now that the weather has gotten colder the car had difficulty starting on two occasions. When I manually moved the...

    Is anybody else botherd with wheel bolts that seem to lock themselves on to the wheels. when I first got the car I broke two extending wheelbraces and a spider before I bought a two foot breaker bar to get them slackend. Tonight I thought it was also going to go, there is plenty of copper grease...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi Nothing specific to Saab 9000 but I've found help in this forum before and thought I may ask another question. I recently changed the motor oil filter on my '95 CDE and I tightened the new filter with the grip tool, pretty hard. Now I read the Hayne's manual and there it specifically states...

    OK so you'll probably all have heard about the parking sensor kit I had fitted to my 9-5, and my paint job to make the sensors less obvious. However, I had to mask the areas around each sensor off, and using masking tape, got as close as I could. However masking tape has straight edges, and...
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Having changed the antifreeze over the weekend i disturbed the bottom hose. I cleaned round the pipe from the engine and put a new jubilee clip on the hose. Problem is that the joint now leaks enough to put a damp patch under the front of the car. Have already put some Barrs leak stop in...
