  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have a 2009 9-3 2.0T. My passenger front floor board is full of water, as in an inch or more. I have “steam” coming out of the vents. I have tried to clean the a/c drain line but water was already dripping out of it. The leak is from the center console kick panel where the foam goes to the...
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have a problem with wet carpets in the driver's footwell. Following posts on here I had assumed it was going to be the drain pipe for the aircon, however - I do get water dripping from the pipe. What I just noticed after a couple of weeks of relatively dry weather and some downpours over the...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    This is my first post on here after buying a 98 9-5 2l eco auto. I've done a few searches but nothing seems to come up with the same symtoms. The front driver footwell carpet is soaking. The passenger side is bone dry. The rear footwells have some water pools (not much tho') after a drive. The...
  4. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi, I've had my 1992 900XS, 114,000 m, for a few months now, and it's been great but a couple of weeks ago it died at the traffic lights after driving home on very wet roads. It started again after 10 minutes. I'm of the generation that doesn't know anything about cars so I just left it til...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hope someone can help with this one.... Two weeks ago I noticed a wet patch the size of a dinner plate on the carpet of the drivers footwell of my 05 95 Aero estate. Needless to say I came on here and looked at all the probable causes and my immediate conclusion was that one of the AC drain...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I've had my 9-3 SW for 6 months now - quite pleased with it but this recent wet weather has highlighted an annoying problem. Rain water seems to be getting in through the top of the door. It either sits on the top of the door seal fitted inside the door opening until I open the door when a...
  7. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    I have a 1996 NG900 SE turbo convertible that will not start when it gets wet under the hood. I have had this happen when using a car wash and when washing the engine. I have disconnected all the wiring plugs and dried them, removed disassembled and dried the DI cassette and let it sit with the...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have a 98 2.3 9-5 and I've noticed that the carpet in the rear passenger footwell is very wet. It has a slight oily feel to it and no smell. I don't have a clue where it has come from or what has caused it so I've come to those who will know. Any ideas? Many thanks HiTower
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My friend, who I have mentioned before, Dennis27k, has a wet boot floor in his 97 Anniversary. From what I can see, the passenger side (UK) boot floor is damp with no visible means of water entry from above. This is water not petrol. There is also condensation in the spare wheel well although...

    Just wondered if any one can help on the following to my 02 2.2Tid estate: Carpet to drivers and rear pasengers footwell found to be soaking wet, did read somewhere this could have leaked from the air conditioning unit. Engine coolant all okay. Any ideas on how to check if the AC unit is...

    Ok, so the wife has just called ( working up north) , and said that all of her carpets are sodden inside the car. Aircon and heating are working 100%, so after a quick search on here, it looks like one /all of the drain holes may be blocked. ( got her to check all window and door seals, no...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Thats what Iv'e noticed, If I turn the heat right up, it kind of dissapear's but not quite, there's no small or dampness of coolant either.. Could it be the pollen filter?
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just thought I'd cheer everyone up by demonstrating that there is always someone worse off than you I had a couple of very simple jobs to do that had to be done today - change the oil/filter and swop the winter wheels for the normal wheels. First thing I did was to take off the offside...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi - hope somebody can help. I have a damp carpet in the front drivers footwell. The damp patch is very localised - and would appear to be coming from underneath because the overmats are not wet at all. I've booked the car in with the dealer (under warranty. Anybody suggest where it might be...
  18. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    My wife has a 98 93 convertible. Over night there was a fair bit of rain and the carpet in the passenger side of the car is wet, the water seems to be coming from behind the centre console. It is not totally soaking but enough to notice. All windows shut over night, the dampness does not seem...

  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    It happened a few times that when I had to brake after a long distance drive in very wet conditions, there was some kind of delay on the braking action. When I press the pedal nothing happens for a second, afterwards the car brakes again normally. It probably has to do with a film of water on...
