  1. 2006 Saab 9-5 shifter cable fix

    9-5 Workshop
    Would this solve the difficult to get into 5th gear? As my ‘02 Aero struggles to gate into 5th. It’s a stir the soup and see if it goes in.

    Please, Can they come with the plugs for the bulbs as well, I’m going to wire in the markers into my sidelights on the Aero. Could you post to the UK? If so how much for everything and how would you like paying?

    Don’t suppose you still have the front indicator/markers lights?

    Some of the vac pipes (4mm) look and feel weak under pressure, so I’ve bought some 4mm hose as I’ve done before with the other 3 9-5’s to replace. I’ve got 3mtrs of 4mm Gates multi fuel hosing.

    The front “torque” mount? I can move with my finger as the engine side bush is really worn. From the access I could get I tested the rear/vac mount, the wishbone (drivers - uk) mount feels secure. I’m looking at the xenons this evening, now I’ve finished polishing the car to check the poor...

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi all, It’s been about 5 years since I last had a 9-5. I’ve just bought a 2002 Aero Saloon, from a private sale. I’m a little concerned over it, it was described as a good runner, no knocks or bangs and no warning lights. I’ve just come from a 6yr old Peugeot 508 Hybrid to a 17yr old Aero...
  8. how hard is a total interior swap?

    9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Took me an hour to remove a Black Leather interior inc Doorcards, Auto Dim mirror and armrest. That was front scratch. The hard part is changing the heat pads from my fabric interior to the leather. Where's that thread gone, ad can't find it anywhere...
  9. What is my car worth?

    Cars for Sale - North America
    I've just had someone ask me to sell the car over £300 lower than the asking price, so they can insure it and cover the cost of fuel to pick it up...... I always thought that the asking price IS the asking price. The total amount you pay for THE CAR. Not so you can cover your fuel expenses...

    I had a Black '99 9-5 SE estate, looked really nice from a distance when cleaned and polished. Close up you could see ALL the scuffs and scratches. To be honest I wouldn't know about the US market. But I'm having the same problem selling my Laguna at the mo. It's been on ebay 4 times now...

    Quick UK lesson. In 2001 the UK had a change of Licence plate system. Pre 2001, it ran with a letter twinned with a year, 1-3 numbers, a random letter, then, the area where the car was registered. For Instance (one of my old registration's). V38DLH - this was my old 9-5 estate, using this as...
