    Hi All, just a quick intro - I am James and have had a few SAAB's over the years but I want to keep this one. (following in the footsteps of my Dad - an avid fan of 900's - 9000's and latelry 9-5's) I have picked up a lovely clean low mileage 9-5 Estate/ SW - it has 215/55r16's on now and I...

    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?

    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...

    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. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Has anyone got a pic of their 9000 with the chrome wheel arch trim fitted. I've got a ceyenne red and I am wondering if it would look a bit 'bling'

  10. 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...

    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...

  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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...
  16. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)

  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have 17" alloy wheels on my 9-5 which I guess are the same age as my car (1998). They have a large centre piece covering the wheel nuts.It's just under 150mm in diameter and slightly dished with the Saab Scania badge in the centre. It's held in place with one Alun (is that how you spell...
