  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi guys, new member here, I bought a saab 9-3 off one of my friends who was thinking of scrapping it after the fuel pump failed. I stripped out a fuel pump off another saab 9-3 54 plate which was a write off but the vehicle was starting and driving. This is where the fun begins. Unfortunately...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I drove our Saab 9-3 sports estate (2006) this week only to get an ABS error not long after leaving home, and a grinding noise when applying the brakes, (ABS kicking in) it was very intermittent and the speedo I could tell was registering an incorrect speed, after a few miles it pinged a bigger...

    Guys, Further to my previous thread on misfiring, now resolved thanks to all who suggested inlet / intercooler leaks, I have had a further more minor problem in the same area. During a run north to Orkney along the A9 ( longest section of average speed cameras in the UK - Dunblane to Inverness...

  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Well, it appears my new (to me) 2003 Linear has decided to christen my ownership by having the water pump grenade on me. I'm not used to modern cars by any means, this is the newest one I've ever owned in fact. I've always been able to work on my cars myself, somehow I've managed to avoid having...

  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    Hi all, So I ordered the Bluetooth parrot ck3100 kit as I have seen many SAABs use them. However, upon dismantling almost the entire dash, glove compartment and passenger side panel I'm none the wiser with regards to the connections that came with the kit. Evidently it isn't just plug and...

  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello All. Finally getting around to sorting rear and headlight wash systems, I find :- 1) that although nozzle and the tubing to the rear is clear now that I've taken out the non return valve near the pump, it will only work when I connect it to the Front screen outlet on the pump, which is...

  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I'm wondering if anyone else on here is suffering the utter frustration I am with my '04 2.2 TiD, I had my turbo replaced about 6 months ago as it was leaking oil onto the MAP sensor, triggering limp home mode, since then the problem has continued, with the code p0106 & p2227 showing up, so had...

    Hi Have just noticed that both my central locking and the electric window have stopped working (the switch is also not illuminated) on the rear passenger door. Is it coincidence or are they linked and what can an amateur with a Haynes Manual do? PS Just noticed on the back on my Haynes that...

This happens about 15 mins after starting from cold, I suspect at about the time it takes to warm the interior of the car to the set temp. At this time the blower goes dead at this point regardles of settings, clicking continues...

  19. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Having acquired a 1.9 TiD Edition last March I now find that on the coldest of mornings the engine sounds extremely 'lumpy' for a minute or two at cold start . It is about 16 years since my last diesel (Isuzu 3.1 L Trooper) and I cannot remember that being the same. My main concern is that a...

    Morning all, Have the dreaded clonk when going into drive, have had a full gear oil change (drain fill, drain fill etc) and no joy. So, what are my options? Is it the solenoids do you think?
