  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    So, as part of my preventative maintenance routine, this weekend, I replaced the track rod ends on my Saabillac. My car is now 9 years old and has only done 53k miles, but I noticed during routine checks, that the rubber boots were pretty much flat as pancakes. I knew there was no way in this...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Folks: Not sure how best to describe my headliner problem other than to say the headliner on the passenger rear side seems to pop out of its holding frame/track every once in a while (when raising the top). This does not seem to happen all the time but has happened a few times in the last...

    9-3 saab 1.9 Tid, 2006 How easy is it to replace the inner track rod i.e any special tools required... I felt steering was pulling slighty to the left after hitting a pot hole and had some slight knocking so jacked her up and had a look noticed the anti-roll bar drop link was damaged so i...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, ive got a saab 93 aero 2.0 petrol 2008 i got 4 new tyres for my car a couple of weeks ago and also decided to check the tracking too at the same time, i was told that they couldnt track the car because the near side inner track rod has a slight bend in it and they cant do it because of...
  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Right then, I am now in possesion of my shiney new MOT - i see they have changed the certificate again! My car needed a o/s/f track rod end and front drop-link. After the work was done the steering wheel was 'off' at an odd angle, the track rod end was identical and wound on exactly the same...
  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Having struggeled this w/e with replacing a drop link with split bush (not actually too bad) and decided to do the front arb bush while there (bad move, a right PIA) on the offside, I found that there is a little play in the inner track rod joint. I will have to do it at some point before the...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, Just thought I would post up some photos of our recent track day. Lots of fun and the Aero was fantastic. SWMBO drive it most of the day and really pushed it. Damp track, skidpan, fast laps, slalom and a fair bit of right foot being employed...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi guys, Quick question. I had a small bit of damage to one tyre last weekend, resulting in a new set of boots all round. Just what you need at this time of year, though at least it gives a bit more confidence on the roads! Anyway, i wanted to get the tracking done, but one of the track...

To follow the rest of the progress, I encourage you to visit the Mille Miglia’s live map then, simply plug [...]
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I am in the process of removing the inner track rod, but I am unable to get a spanner on the flat of the ball joint. Is ther any other method of removal?
  11. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Is it possible to replace the track rods on a C900 without taking the steering rack off? The threads on my current ones are so rusted, it's impossible to get the tracking done.

    It’s been just over year since I’ve taken a car to a race track, and we all know how that ended! BUT…… I bought the Alfa with the idea of doing some more track work in mind. It’s supposed to save my current Saab from the same fate as my last one and be my inexpensive track car that won’t...

    I have a 2003 Saab 93 convertible that have covered just 38,000 miles which needs the nears side track rod and ends replacing. I am really surprised that these items need replacing at this stage in the cars life. I took the issue up with Saab UK and they have told me that these are wear and...

    We all saw Daniel’s track day accident and commiserated with him after the loss brakes led him into a tyre wall. That would have been hell-ish enough for one week. Psycho Dave’s been keeping an eye on the story, and it hasn’t stopped there. In case you haven’t seen it in comments…...

    I’m a firm believer in the benefits a good track day can bring. There’s the skills learned. The respect learned. The technique. Smoothness. Braking. And aside from all that there’s the sheer, unbridled joy that a good run in your favourite ride can bring. It’s an exhilarating feeling and...

    Last time we saw this car, it was blowing a pfoofer valve whilst recording 476hp on the dyno. Kaylan advises me it’s all running OK again. She had in on the dyno again recently and recorded another 470+ run, but they were having trouble keeping it in place. The expected output will be around...
