    Hi Folks. Would someone be kind enough to give me a step by step guide and if any special tools required for changing the rear upper control/Banana arms on a 2006 Saab 93ss Convertible please. Also .... is it a genuine product only or does someone make a decent pattern version??

    I had a water pump fail about 3 months ago. After I changed my water pump I began to have problems with my belt slipping. I also noticed oil around the pulley area near where I believe the head gasket is. I also am not sure if whether or not my belt tensioner needs to be replaced as well...

    Is there a guide please. One with pictures ideally, as I have read mixed review on how difficult a job it is to change them. Thanks,

    I have a 2006 9-3 2.0T with about 122,000 miles and I heard a noise coming from the rear of the car and found the upper shock mount has a pretty solid crack in it. I called the dealership and they said its nothing to worry about but to keep an eye on it, but I would like to replace it. The...

    my mot failed today. the guy says I need 2 rear upper suspension arms. he says £150 to replace both. is that good. also as an advisory he says play in steering rack inner joints. whats that and much do you reckon that would cost.

    I'm searching for an upper radiator hose part #12787608. Apparently, there are not any available in the whole state. The t clamp in the middle nipple wore out. You can't just buy the middle part of the hose, you apparently have to buy the whole hose. Problem is I can't find it anywhere. Does...

  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, can anybody suggest where I can find an upper engine mount or a replacement bush. A bracket with a decent bush installed would be my quickest solution. The bush in mine is getting a bit soggy. It's the bracket attached to the engine that I need, not the one attached to the bulkhead. Thanks.
  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I've just replaced both rear upper control arms on my 150 tid. This was due to a knocking noise and bad wearing on inside of rear tyres. Is it worth getting it 4 wheeled aligned?
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Yes - those lovely banana-shaped jobbies that crop up in MOT advisories. I can't fault mine by trying to shake the wheels, or levering at them with my trusty 54 year old Dunlop No. 1 tyre lever (nicked from the RAF) but I have got a new pair to fit tomorrow (I've just about finished the service)...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Silly query but how does one remove the rear bumper upper section on a MY05 9-5 estate? Looking at it, I think I need to prise off the LH and RH trim sections, remove the LH and RH light clusters and then prise the thing off. Are there are any bolts/screws hiding anywhere that I may have missed...

    Hi All Trying to change my rear upper control arms as they got flagged on MOT Struggling to get clear access to the bolts (sub frame and exhaust are in the way) and get enough leverage to move them (v. tight) Anyone have any tips to do this job? Do you also need to counter-hold the nut on...
  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    What is the best socket/wrench to handle strut upper nut on 93. 93 compared to 900 has the nut sitting on the dumper rod deep inside the strut mount and you cant use a simple open wrench like on 900. I guess the best would be some sort of a deep open top socket that can be grabbed with an open...

    anybody got the bush removal tool for the torque arm bushes,want to do them before the engine gets put in,would buy new but probably only use once so second hand,rent or loan would be great.Based in Renfrewshire.
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Afternoon All,. I replaced the upper engine mounts about two weeks and 400 miles ago (both rubber) and immediately afterwards I have had two unusal noises. The first is extra vibration which seems to be lessening as I drive - I guess this is just the new mounts bedding in. The second is not...
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hello All Today's discovery is that the upper engine mount bushes are well past their best and need to be replaced. Confirmed as I can feel some engine vibration coming into the cabin. I will be replacing them with rubber ones (not poly). I have been looking on Elkparts and have found two bits...
