Good to hear. Having some local sources is what you need for these cars. A lot of the parts are just as good used and a lot cheaper than new. Post in the forum if you need help - there are lots of people with experience in the different areas of these cars.
I will see what I can do. No guarantees... until I get my 9-3 back on the road, my time at the yard may be limited. One other option you should check out is people parting our cars in the classifieds here.
FYI - if you get to ten posts, you can turn on and send "Private Messages", which are a tad easier than visitor messages. Prowl around the Lounge or the workshop and ask/answer questions. Saying "thanks" will score you an extra post count increment
Yes the 97 and up had the upgraded linkage. It's amazing but all I have found are automatics in my area. I still need the whole shift knob assembly, spring and the reverse lock if available. I appreciate the help. Thanks
There's a chance I will be at a yard some time soon in conjunction with my head rebuild, but I can't be sure. Transportation is an on-going issue. Remind my failing memory... when do the updates start, 1997? Also, did you find the other bits you needed?
I've been doing a ton of research on why my tonneau isn't unlatching and your name keeps showing up. I was hoping you could help me directly. 2001 9-3, I go to power stow top and 5th bow rises but tonneau won't unlatch. Driver side is nice and loose, but passenger side is still locked, thus halting process and yielding "Soft Top Failure" message. There is no hydraulic leaks and I will be checking shear pin tonight. Any other thoughts on what it could be? Is there a way to manually disengage pass lock? Thank you very much.
hi you seem to be the only one to answer my post, just wondering if you had any other advise for me. my daughter wants to continue enjoying her car. we have now realized that if we disconnect the maf the car drives fine, go figure, but can it be driven like this without any further damage and why would this happen. all the wiring seems in tact, with it plugged up it runs real crappy and will shut off when in gear.
