  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    A lot of cars with climate control have .5 deg C. temperature change options, which Saab doesn't and only allows changes in whole 1 deg C. To make smaller temperature changes, change the setting from Celsius to Fahrenheit, metric to imperial in the settings. Now you'll have more precise...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Just finished changing flywheel clutch etc.. Horrible job mainly due to weather and the conditions I was working in. Car sounds so much better now and all gears seem smooth,..... test drive tomorrow. One problem I had was bleeding the clutch, Haynes say that there are special kits available...

    Hey so I am not the best car person so hopefully someone out there is, however does anyone have any recommendations on a nice maybe cheap exhaust tip? If you have picture that would also be nice to see. Lastly is it easy to connect the tip to the exhaust?

    Hi all, Upon fitting new back box I no longer require this one, this had been put on the car about 5 months ago and the only reason it has been taken on if due to striking up a deal with a company to have more than one part changed. This is the description on PFS and the price on there is...
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Thanks to Chris McGuiness, the Indy SAAB mechanic I mentioned in my previous post. I have just discovered your can eject and insert a new aerial mast without dismanting the assembly or even removing it from the car...... cool.. Just have to take off the top nut on the wing and with luck it will...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    just a little tip that may just keep you on the road when doing the sump job on the 9-5, i had to disconnect the 2 exhaust sensors at the connectors. I noticed there was some corrosion on the connector pins, an old tip from a friend that restores classic and vintage cars told me to use...
  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I bought my 1999 saab 93 in October and since then i've had three separate moments(weeks apart) when the engine lost power for an instant at highway speed, and odd idling from time to time. Generally, the car runs fine and economy is good so I haven't been too worried. That said, it seemed that...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    if like me you get caught without the tool or are just puzzling over the fuel rail pipes, heres how they come off. pull or push the rubber seal with the 3 wings on down the pipe as far as it will go, now inside the metal sleeve are 4 clips you can't see, i didn't have the tool but its easy to...
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have a leak in the boot that drips in along the edge of the headlining. Having read the various threads on this oh so helpful forum i decided the seal was the culprit and needed replacing. DO NOT coat the seal or metal edge with silicone lubricant or Waxoyl. If you do you will not get the new...
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I'm still in a bad mood about replacing these a wk ago #:-< anyway - i had big problems getting the metal cap (that's what the EPC calls it), or I as I prefer to call it "bl00dy stupid metal clamp" over the bush, whilst lining it up to get the screws in. a pi55ed about for about an hr with no...
  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi thought I'd just pass this on.... One of my remote keyfob's stopped locking the car....so I bought a replacement off of e-bay for a fiver and instead of getting it reprogrammed for £35 at a dealer, I removed one of the micro-switches and replaced the faulty one... cheap cheap cheap. Only a...
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Picked up 06 9-3 Aero this week. It has the daft built-in phone (nightmare of SIM swapping or number diversion) as well as the AUX socket in centre console. Now I have an iPhone which works very nicely with a Jabra bluetooth hands free which clips onto visor. Excellent voice quality. Problem is...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Well, it's been a good few months since I performed the following on my sensors, and they've not played up since, so here goes in tempting fate . If you get the SID parking sensor warning, remove all of the little blighters - a firm push on the middle of the sensor, as if you are trying to...

    If you live in a hard-water area and have a condenser clothes dryer, save that condensed water, do not throw it away! I have been saving the stuff recently for use in steam irons and my steam cleaner. However the stuff built up to the point where I had gallons of it. If you use about 1/2 gallon...

    My second problem is the locking mechanism on the tonneu cover every so often the locks fail to open when the hood strikes them it breaks the plastic pin in the mechanism this has happened a couple of times and rather than buy new latches ive used plastic number plate nuts and bolts filed flat...

    As a result of Adv 2, I thought that this may be a useful tip. Based on the earlier suggestion that there is no point in reciting parts of Roadcraft, I give you this which is a development of Roadcraft and an example of how simple sound bites of 'be able to stop within the distance you can see...
