  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello evryone, I have a 2009 Saab 9-3 convertible and have suffered with uneven tyre wear especially on the n/s front but also on the o/s but not as quite as bad. The outer edge is wearing badly to a point were it's smooth and I cannot see the tread pattern at all. The rear tyres are wearing...
  2. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    Hi all, I was doing a much, much needed brake job on my 2008 saab 9-3 2.0T and noticed some severely uneven pad wear on the rear passenger side. The pad down the metal is the outside pad. Before I order in a rebuilt caliper, I just wanted to pass it by the great people here to make sure...
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have a 2006 Saab 9/3 1.9d 8valve 120hp with just short of 100,000 miles and have recently noticed that when the engine is warm I get a juddering feel most noticably between 1500 and 2000 rpm. I have taken it to a garage who first cleaned out the EGR Valve and when that did not work they...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi All, I've recently noticed that the brakes on my 9-3 Aero seem to be getting hotter than usual, or than I would expect. After 15 miles on a motorway and then 1 mile on a B road going to work, I can hear them ticking when cooling and can not touch them. I barely use them on the journey and...
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    gad damn it! 8.3.1a - windscreen damage ok, so I left it too long to fix the bullseyed winscreen, and the gap in between the layers had misted 1.2.4a – Nearside headlamp not in good working order adversely affecting beam image Would this be the reflector being not silver anymore? and most...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I drive a -06 1.9 tid (120, 8v) and I'm experiencing a strange problem. Between about 1600 and 2000 RPM the engine response is rather uneven, almost like driving in the wrong gear. Locking the cruise control at about 1800 rpm is a shure way of reproducing the symptoms. Happens at any speed...
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I seem to be wearing the outside edge of my rear tyres. Could this be simply due to cornering speed or is there something else going on? If it was the inside, I would suspect bushens or something worn. It doesn't make sense for things to be pointing forward, if you know what I mean.
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    What causes the idle to sit a little high then slowly drop to it's 850rpm level. Only sometimes. Cruising along knock out of gear and idle speed hovers 950-1100rpm eventually settling. Same at junctions. I have cleaned throttle body and new idle control valve fitted. Fairly recent lamda also...
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hello there, I've noticed that the fuelling seems to be uneven on my '93 manual Aero. A few symptoms: Acceleration at part throttle is not linear and sometimes falls off part way around the dial (say 3000rpmish), then it resumes again. Sometimes it feels like power drops off tooling around...
  10. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    I've just changed the Belts on my 8v N/A and I'm having problems getting the tension correct on the two belts driving the water pump and alternator. They both share the same pulleys and serve as a dual redundant setup. The Belt near the bulkhead is quite loose and the one against the Engine is...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Just like to thank everyone for the advise so far. The story up til now. Changed the plugs (BCPR7ES-11) and DI. Did compression test. All within the range of 155-166psi. ie 6% Checked for air leaks. Can't find any obvious ones. No fault codes coming up. What to do next?
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Here's the scenario: 2000 2.0lpt, 46k miles - just had a new Saab performance upgrade kit installed, including plugs and injectors. The problem is that in 3rd and 4th between 3 and 4000 revs the car seems to be hesitating/holding back - it feels as if it's misfiring. Oddly this doesn't happen...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, A couple of weeks ago I noticed that at low speeds under light braking, I was getting a slight judder through the body. (Grabbing or uneven retardation would be a better description!) Immediately thought "Hmm, rear discs". Local garage confirmed by putting the car (97 2.3 lpt auto) on brake...

  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Need some opinion as to where I should start looking... 2000 9-5 2.3L LPT. On occasion (and it seems with warmer weather this is more noticible) on light acceleration the rate of acceleration is uneven, almost like a pulsation. When the humidity is higher, I can actually hear the car go...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi guys, as a couple of others have posted in the past (Wasaabi earllier in the month) and someone else earlier this year... I had an area of uneven running at about 3100 rpm to 3400 rpm, most often under no or light acceleration. After putting up with this for a couple of years and trying...

    My 9000 CSE Anni had new front tyres 20,000 miles ago - AVON ZZ1's (Low profile). Both are now totally bald on the inside edges. I've had tracking and camber checked both are said to be OK. Any ideas? Is there a better replacement tyre?

  20. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    The front kerbside tyre has worn unevenly, with peaks and troughs undulating around the tread pattern. The right hand tyre is fine. (I cannot comment on the back as they were replaced recently with no noticed problem). The car also gently pulls to the left, which is only noticable on a...
