  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hey guys, I've got an odd issue with my 07 93 2.8T. Only seems to happen turning right at speed, i.e going round a round about. Its a sort of metallic rubbing noise coming from the back of the car but it sometimes sounds like it's coming from the front. I've had a brief look and its not the...
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi guys my 2005 9-5 linear diesel estate has developed an intermittent fast squeak noise and it seems to be worse when turning right. The noise doesn't bother me but sometimes I lose power/hesitate when pulling off at a junction which feels a bit like the traction control cutting in. the...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, I am not sure whether they are related or not but a week earlier I could smell a burning rubber / plastic smell from the front passenger side from either console side or under the seat (saab 9-3 2.0t petrol) after I had driven it. I could not work out exactly where it was coming from...
  4. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi guys, yes, its me again needed your help, I started the car this morning, and left it running whilst I popped back to the house, when I got back to the car the engine had stopped. I tried to restart it, but its just turning over, and not firing up. I have searched the forums, and read its...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello, My car at times turns off the ESC and ABS all at once and without interference of mine. It is completely random, at no given intervals and at no particular situation other then mostly shortly after turning the engine on. Usually turning the car off and on again solves it for the day, but...

    Hi there, I had an odd noise today on my 2007 93 Vector estate. I was doing about 70 mph and turned to the left caused the noise. Its was a slight rumble, low level noise that went on for a second or so then stopped. It did not happen turning to the right or at low speed. I have just had my...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi I have a 2005 95 Aero Estate and want to use the front fog lights as daytime running lights (I will probably change the bulbs for LEDs) Rather than just disable the foglights and have them come on (as DRL) with the ignition (and switch off when the side lights are turned on) I want to be...

  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    First, I have 2 Saabs: 1997 9K CSE-t, and 2008 9-5 wagon. Love them, and trying to put the 9K back on the road full time. Anyway, my question relates to the 97 9000. My story is: Keys go in fine, car starts fine, dash lights OK etc, but key stays in start mode. I have to manually turn it back a...

  12. General Saab Discussions
    Well, i went the other way! http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2012/09/saab-owners-turning-to-honda-volkswagen-study.html what i miss most about the Honda is the Swiss watch reliability and build quality. What i like most about the Saab is that it has a soul and i enjoy driving it.

  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Basically, as the title of the post suggests, my car won't start. 2003 Saab 93 Linear 2.0t Initially I thought my battery was dead ( as it died in the past before ) but I'm sure this time it isn't that because I got at least 15-20 mins worth of power from another car and there's no clicking...
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello all, about 20-30 miles ago my '98 2.3LPT auto started making a clicking noise from the left side of the engine, around the area of the auxiliary drive belt. I started it the other day (but didn't drive it) and the noise had worsened. Yesterday I started the engine and it ran for about 2...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Both my door mirrors on MY57 9-5 Vector Sport Estate are turning sepia on the outer edges. This has been happening for some time but the area affected is gradually getting larger. The nearside mirror edge now appears to be losing its mirrored effect. I clean the car with branded car shampoo...
  18. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I'm hoping I can get some advice from you guys, as I'm at a bit of a loss. I'm from Aberdeen, Scotland, and sadly our local Saab dealer has closed down so the nearest is about 80 miles away and I've been having a problem. When the car slows and freewheels round a corner, ie without the...
