  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi All, Our friends bought a 2005 Saab 9-3 for their son. His dog -ate- the key. Okay, the dog gave it a good chewing. The buttons still lock/unlock the door, but it will not start the ignition. When I opened up the fob, I found that the dog had knocked loose a rectangular bar from the...

    Guys and gals, I've owned my new saab 9-3, for less than a week now and so far i'm delighted with it But... (there's always a but) The washer jet doesn't work (I knew this when the car was bought). Now from reading the forums, it would seem the issue would be the prevalent, weak washer pump...

  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, I have a 97 CSE 2.3 hot Automatic with 145k. I replaced the turbo about 10k ago and get no smoke when starting up cold or stopping (when warmed up) and starting again. However if I start cold, drive for a mile (not reaching full temp) and let it sit for an hour or so, I get huge clouds of...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Just to let everyone know... ACC fan would blow intermitently. Main dealer and posts on here suggested that usual signs of fan speed controller failure was for the fan to blow full and hot - sometimes requiring the fuse to be pulled in order to stop. Mine just did not do that so I suspected bad...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Recently been aware of my 9-5 estate acting strangely when going over a bump in the road or a man hole cover. This happens if ONLY the rear passenger (obviously preceeded by the passenger front wheel) wheel goes over a depression in the road or a man hole cover - the car suddenly lurches to the...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    During a recent service the mechanic pointed out some uneven tyre wear on the inside of the front tyres. Does anyone have any idea what might cause this and what the remedy might be. The tyres have been on the fronts for approx 14k miles. I have had no symptoms from the tyres. The tyres have now...

    My neighbours recently had their car stolen by a chap who walked into the house through the back door in mid afternoon and walked out through the front with the car keys! The police thought it was stolen to order and probably out of the country or in parts by the following day. But not so. It...

    Mechanics working on a faulty car were astonished to uncover the problem - 2,000 nuts hidden in its air filter. It is thought a squirrel had stashed its winter supply in David Bowler's engine while the car was in his garage. Mr Bowler took the Rover 45 to a garage in Fareham, Hampshire, after...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    If you haven't already spotted this on Ebay, here's a 9000 that's both unusual and has an interesting history - a stretch limo used to transport Lennox Lewis! 9000 stretch limo Be quick, less than 2 days to go. Have you got 4k to spare?

  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    The diesel engine thread gave me a thought. Does anyone know of any other different (maybe highly tuned) engines that someone has put into a 9000? For example, has anyone tried shoehorning a V8 in?

    Had to go to a funeral today, and while we were waiting at the crematorium afterwards, another funeral procession drove in. The coffin was being carried in none other than a Saab 9-5 hearse!! Now I've never seen one of those before. I suspect that won't be fitted with any of your stage 2...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Firstly, my 9000 has ETS, so there are no vacuum lines to leak. Also I have checked out the Brake and Clutch switches and they work fine. SYMPTOM When I'm doing abour 30mph, pressing Set has the desired effect and Cruise works fine. If I then hold in Set to speed up the car, the Cruise drops...

    I saw a 9-5 in a carpark yesterday, which had some wheels I have not come across before. They had saab centrecaps and didn't look like aftermarket wheels, but they were very odd looking. Not having a camera to hand, the best description I can give is that they looked rather like 99EMS football...

    My 2001 95 Aero auto (77k) has developed a new noise when cruising at about 2 and half to 3 thousand revs (50-75mph). It starts to sound like a diesel engine, with a rythmic deep 'whow..whow..whow' sound which is more noticable on certain road surfaces than others (although it is always...
  20. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi All, how often have we seen that a car must have service history to make it an attractive sale? when i purchesed my 900s turbo, i was told that it once belonged to a famous comedian,, yeah right i thought, any trick to shift a car (you never beleive anything from a dealer (do you??))...
