  1. Wiper Linkage - Saab 9-3, 2.0T

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    My passenger side wiper stopped working so I pulled up the cowling below the window and found the arm (where it's supposed to attach to the motor) swinging freely. In the arm were the partial remains of a dome-shaped piece of whitish plastic and, in the tray below, were a few other pieces...
  2. Installing Smart Mirror

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Thank you for the tip -- I didn't see a third screw holding in the plastic housing, but I had the car in the garage and was operating by flashlight. Monday I'll move the car into the sun and try again. Alan
  3. Installing Smart Mirror

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I'm looking at purchasing a smart mirror - one with auto dim, compass, and HOmeLink - for my 2006 9-3 2.0T. Before doing so, I thought I'd try to take apart the housing to see where everything goes but immediately ran into problems. The plastic housing above the mirror appears to be in...
  4. Installing Smart Mirror

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I'm looking at purchasing a smart mirror - one with auto dim, compass, and HOmeLink - for my 2006 9-3 2.0T. Before doing so, I thought I'd try to take apart the housing to see where everything goes but immediately ran into problems. The plastic housing above the mirror appears to be in three...
  5. Accuracy of mileage calculator?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I am not resetting the onboard mileage computer in any way nor do I rely on DTE. When I fill up, all I do is reset the trip odometer - should I be resetting the onboard mileage computer at each fillup? Yes, I have the correct units set to US. Alan
  6. Accuracy of mileage calculator?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I'm curious as to how well your onboard mileage calculator compares to what you compute using your odometer and fuel receipt. My onboard mileage calculator seems relatively accurate when I'm running long distances non-stop at highway speeds. But it seems that the more stop-and-go traffic I'm...
  7. Recommended Manuals & A Minor "Buzzing" Cabin Noise

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have a 2006 9-3 2.0 and would like to have a manual which covers the basics. I'm not mechanically inclined so I don't need anything really rich in content, but enough for me to identify the basics and perhaps debug small problems. For example, below is a problem I'd like to fix. I drove over...
  8. Autodimming mirror (2006 9-3)

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I'd like to get an autodimming mirror for the above - preferably one with Homelink and a compass. I'm not sure what brand I should buy (other than Saab) or what wiring harnesses are needed. Depending on difficulty, this may not be a DIY so any thoughts on installation costs would be...
  9. '06 Saab 9-3 : Electric Problems & Won't Start

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Thank you, Brian! Brian wrote: The OE batteries are known to be flaky. The car should still be under warranty with roadside assistance so you could call a Saab dealership and tell them they can either send a tow truck or you could bring the battery to them and exchange it. The replacement...
  10. '06 Saab 9-3 : Electric Problems & Won't Start

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have a 2006 Saab 9-3 with about 35K miles on it, bought as a leased car several months ago. I drove the car several times today with stops along the way, but this afternoon when I went to run an errand, the engine never turned over and instead: - all the warning icons lit up - needles on all...
  11. Questions You think are too stupid to ask

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Clear Film Bras (for the 9-3 SS) When searching eBay using the word "Saab", I found this seller's interesting product - a clear film bra (roughly akin to that used for tinting) which goes over the front of the hood and lower bumper. http://tinyurl.com/4hhbf8 In general, are these a Good Idea...
  12. Questions about used Saab Purchase

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Yesterday I looked at a 2006 9-3 2.0T and am hoping that folks here can help me with some "first time Saab purchaser" questions. The vehicle has 31K miles, leather pkg and sun roof. Body, paint, and engine appear to be immaculate. The vehicle is almost exactly two years old and came off a lease...

    Thank you, SaabKen. That was my first post here and it seems I messed up in terms of location so thanks for the pointer.
