    Hi all, Im new here! I have a problem on my Saab 93. The locking wheel nuts are seized up and have snapped the key. I have had two garages try and fail at removing them as apparently they are extremely tight. Does anyone know how to sort this?

    Saab Parts / Accessories, FOR SALE and WANTED
    Greetings one and all, My 2000 Viggen convertible has come out of retirement due to the eldest daughter passing her driving test, and surprise, surprise, it now needs a new alloy wheel courtesy of taking evasive action from a rather large lorry. So do any of the learned members of this forum...
  5. Tracking/Steering wheel alignment

    Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    I decided to have a tracking check on my newly acquired 93 Aero convertible, (5 yrs old, 38k miles). Kwik-fit reported the need for adjustment but this did not 'straighten' the steering wheel, which seems slightly off when driving in a straight line, (cambers accepted). I have had the car...

  8. Wheel Offset

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi all, Quick question for those who have larger wheels i.e 17" ones. when you go from std 6.5 to 7" wheels do you keep the offset at 30? or do you need to adjust it +-? From what I can work out if the std offset is kept it will move the wheel outer edge by 7mm which I don't think is a problem...
  9. Wheel bearing?

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have a 1987 16v turbo. At low speeds, anything below 40km/h, it makes a noise from the front LH wheel something like a stone stuck under a brakepad. It's particularly bad when braking or turning. It can be minimized by keeping some forward pressure (auto trans!) via the throttle, while braking...

  11. Steering Wheel Audio Controls

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Should the steering wheel audion controls be backlit ? In my old car (97 Xantia) they were, I'm not particulary bothered if they're not but if they should be then I may as well replace the bulbs or whatever. Cheers

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I should soon have a set of 16" aero wheels (exposed bolt type), does anyone know the part number for the saab emblemed centre cap that covers the hub nut? There were a set on eBay a few weeks ago but I missed them.
  13. Wheel bearing? Dragging brake?

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, Can anyone give me a hint on where to check next after the brakes and wheel bearing for a rubbing noise that occurs during right hand cornering? The noise is coming from the OSF and sounds like a brake pad dragging. The frequency of the rubbing is also proportional to road speed. I am...

  19. Steering wheel radio controls

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Does anyone know if it's possible to retro-wire in the audio controls on the steering wheel to the audio unit? Clearly the mountings are there (with blanking shrouds), and I was wondering if say, the controls from a 9-3 would retro-fit. For a safe car, it's the one safety niggle I have with the...
  20. External headunit + Autoleads steering wheel controls

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Thought you guys would find this interesting. I phoned up the guys I bought the Autoleads kit for my 9-5 from a month ago (lowcostcaraudio.co.uk) because I was unable to make them fit to my AS3-equipped 9-5 V6 SE. The person I spoke to seemed very surprised, but after I pointed them at my post...
