  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, I was "happily" driving into work this morning along the motorway smooth as can be and had to slow for traffic ahead. From that point until I arrived at work the steering wheel wobbled/shook on acceleration. If not accelerating it's back to smooth. It seemed to come from driver's side...

  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Bit of an odd one here - 2001 9-3 Conv Was driving home the other day at around 40mph when suddenly there started quite a severe wobble through the steering wheel. I was convinced I had a puncture so pulled over. Checked around, no problems. Started off again and it was still there. So I...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi guys My 9-5 has suddenly developed a massive front wheel wobble when you slow down - it doesn't matter whether it's by lifting off the throttle, de-clutching so the power train is not in play or braking. It's so bad that it's almost undrivable and feels like the wheels are falling off - the...

  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, New 9-3 owner here with a bit of a problem! I've bought cars with wobbly steering/wheels before so I test drove this car TWICE and everything seemed fine! But once purchased, it has become apparent that there is quite a bad steering wheel wobble between 55-65mph. Before and after these...

    The 9-5 Estate is behaving itself impeccably. The problem car is our Citroen Synergie 1.9TD 1998, which we have owned from new and has 110k miles on the clock. Although it's worth less than a shilling on the open market, it is worth fixing as it is a useful football team/big load bus and...
  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi All, <edited to add: D'oh Brake wobble, not Bake wobble. Must proof read.... :) > Used to have a 9000 which was so reliable I gave up coming here.... Anyway this was always a great source of info and after a year with a Subaru Forester, I'm back looking at Saabs.... Specifically a 9-3...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    For the last 12 months I have had a high speed vibration on the car ( 1998 2.3t Auto 125k miles ) This originally started at 80 - 90 mph and has gradually started to kick in at lower speeds and now starts at 60 mph. It makes the car feel unstable and isn't just a vibration more like a warped...

  17. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    hi folks. hope someone can shed some light on this head scratcher for me. since i got my used '54 plate 93 aero its had a slight wheel wobble when i hit 70mph. car had 2 new front rubbers before i collected it so i just assumed the balancing was slightly out. ive just had her into my local...
  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just bought 2000 9-5 aero 5 spd manual 100k miles. Brilliant thing. Between 70-85 mph the steering wobbles as if front wheels need balancing. Tyres are Michelin Pilots front tread at 5mm rear 7mm, front rims are not buckled, have adjusted front wheel bearings but only minutely.......and checked...
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Car is a 1996 lpt cse. At low speed the steering wheel tends to wobble from side to side. I thought this may be a balancing problem with the front tyres but as the car speeds up it disappears. Car has just passed MOT so the steering rack etc would have been checked for play. Any ideas ?
  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    hi my saab 95 has just started wobbling! let me explain: speed 50-65mph range. i can 'find' with accelerator a point where there seems to be a wobble. raer headrest starts to vibrate. it feels exactly like a tyre balancing issue, but the wheel is steady as a rock. it has to be front wheel...
