  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, I have tried to find the answer in various places around the internet, to no avail so will just ask instead! I bought a 2004 93 Convertible last weekend, knowing the roof didn't work. The non mechanical guy I bought it from, had no idea why it didn't but as it was cheap (and fast!) i...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    No power below 3k. Engine light yellow. If you can get it above 3K (difficult) it pulls like hell. Must get a code reader, 127K trouble free miles to date.

    Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas on this? I've just upgraded to 9-3 Vector sport to a 2008 ttid Aero Estate, When i collected it the garage had informed me that they have fitted a new battery. On my drive home i noticed the speedometer would not go below 30mph when stationary or...

    Hi, Just come back into Saab ownership after brief relationship with a Porsche 924S. I bought a Saab 9-3 SE 2.0T at the weekend and on the way home realised that the AC fan wasn't working...... all the ACC buttons look to do what they are supposed to and warm air comes through the vents when...

  9. Saab News
    Like Swade, I’m pleased to take a weekend break from the financial ills plaguing the General. In this post, you’ll find another TS regular first-time meet up, a Hirsch of a different stripe and notes about my recent 9-5 frustrations. First, the “Hirsch”. I’ve seen this automobile before...
  10. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello fellow Saab owners, I've had my 1996 Saab 900 SE Turbo for a little over a year. It was love at first sight and it's my first car. So i'm distraught now that she's having problems. Here's the story below: Problem 1: This past June the plastic part that hooks onto the clutch in the...

  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Right, you lovely lot! My woes continue and i need my baby back on the road! I replaced the clutch, which was a pain in the neck (as per previous posts) and snapped the gearbox lug off of the sump. OUCH! The problem that I have is that the haynes manual and saab9000.com all list the precedure...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi Seem to be having my fair share of trouble with my MY05 Aero Estate. First thing I noticed the rear near side P Zero tyre going soft no puncture but the inside wall of the tyr seemed to have come away from the carcass and ballooned. All the other tyres were OK at this point. A few days...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    So I decided to take some initiative on my Saab and do a much needed brake pad change, something that I had never done before. Everything was going very smoothly until I reached the last set of pads, on the rear right wheel. When I removed the pads I noticed that they were significantly more...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi Having troubles fitting a new aerial mast to my Anniversary. The original chord had snapped so the aerial was not going up or down. So I purchased a new mast with chord, I have opened the motor and removed the broken off part of the chord, but no matter what I do I cannot get the new aerial...

    On my Saab 900, I have to input a code to start the radio. Anyhow, I accidentally put in the wrong code, then put in the right one when it was too late. I am not sure how to reset the radio so that I can input the correct code and start this baby up. Do I disconnect the battery? Pull a fuse...
  18. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    My radio has been playing up recently- it will go silent all of a sudden, and trying to tune it won't register any staitons, and although you can change to CD, there's no sound from there either. Last night I decided to swap it for a spare. However I couldn't seem to get the electric antenna to...
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    When the resistor went on the '87 9000 ACC I couldnt get a replacement so wired up a permanent feed from the battery to a switch in the car so I could turn the blower motor either full blast or not at all! (I know, I know!) Problem is now I am about to possibly get a resistor the vents never go...
