    Hi all, I've been crashing around the advice here, for which I'm already very grateful. Usual questions: How do I clean and proof my roof; how do I make the audio sound halfway decent (why does such a nice car have such an appalling stereo?!) and what the chuff is Tech2! I'm learning quickly...

    Hi everyone, My lower brake lights are not working for some reason. The high brake light works and all other lights are working (reverse, fog, lights). I assume that if the high brake light is working then that means the switch is working and the signal is getting through to at least one brake...

  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    So odd one yesterday. Jumped in the car, inserted the key and the usual sound of the solenoid disengaging the steering lock. I had forgotten my wallet, so with starting took the key out. Retuned to car, insert key and nothing! Key lock doesn't disengage, so cannot turn key. Nothing on SID at...

    OK in a bit of panic.... Have spent the last two days swapping the manifold on my Vert and was nearly finished with everything back in place. After fitting the pump I checked the rotation by turning the cam sprocket clockwise a couple of turns and the cam pulley has now locked up...I am pretty...

    Hi folks. I picked up my Saab from local garage after having DMF fitted and they commented that neither the front or rear subframes had bushes in them. They were not sure whether the 9-3 Vert was supposed to have bushes or not. Its a 9-3 1.9tid Vector 2006 Vert Can anyone confirm please??

    Hi, as I think I said in my intro, I've recently become the new owner of a Viggen ragtop. Have previously owned both a 99 turbo and 900 turbo so know something of the marque. Anyway, got a number of questions that I hope some of you might be able to answer. 1) Have 2 keys, 1 with banana fob and...

    I need some help. I've been sorting some sort top issues out today with the sun starting to appear. Happily that is now working 100%, however my drivers window no longer seems to function in any way shape or form? I've not messed around with any electronic modules on the car while looking at the...

    Hi All, I am looking at lowering my Aero Vert 2004 but cant find any springs lower than 40mm, this will only drop the Aero 20mm. I know Vectra Springs fit but the Vectra is lighter than the Vert. I have found some 3.2 V6 springs on a 60mm drop, which will drop the Aero 40mm. With it being a...
