  1. No brakes after master cylinder replacement

    9-5 Workshop
    Haha the reason I didn’t bleed it in the first place is the ONLY result for googling “brake master cylinder replacement Saab 9-5” was a vague thread on how to do it and the poster said they didn’t bother bleeding it cause it’s usually not necessary I do believe I solved a problem because the...
  2. NEED HELP DO I BUY THIS 9-3?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Just because it has the Aero engine in it doesn't mean it'll have the ECU to go with it, I think an '04 aero engine will work with a '03 base ECU, but don't quote me on that. An 'Aero' engine is just the same engine with bigger brakes, sportier suspension and of course a tune Either way you're...
  3. FS: Two aftermarket 6x9 sub's for 9-5 sedans

    Parts for Sale/Wanted - North America
    I replaced my sedan daily driver with a wagon so I'm now selling these bad boys. I thought they were perfect and I'm sad to see them go but I've no use for them now! They'll fit and connect with no modifications needed...
  4. No brakes after master cylinder replacement

    9-5 Workshop
    If anyone's curious I bled the master cylinder while it was on the car and I think THAT fixed the problem, and then bled the brakes themselves and now the brakes are presto. Not sure which one it was but hopefully it can help someone!
  5. No brakes after master cylinder replacement

    9-5 Workshop
    I’ve been chasing spongy brakes for a while and decided to replace the master cylinder. I just did this with no trouble but now there is 0 stopping force from the brakes. I figured I’d have to bleed the brakes after doing the MC but I didn’t think there’d be 0 braking power. What I’m asking is...
  6. Passenger engine mount play

    9-5 Workshop
    I’m working on replacing the engine mounts on my wagon because I have a decent shake at idle/in drive and I’m wondering how I should know if the specific engine mounts are bad For the passenger mount, I took the elk horn/wishbone off and I can move the bolt back and forth but there is...
  7. Exhaust hanger clips

    9-5 Workshop
    I couldn’t find any indentations or grooves on the rods, perhaps it was too rusty and I need to clean it but I’m sure I saw/felt nothing. Ill check again with a wire brush
  8. Exhaust hanger clips

    9-5 Workshop
    I just finished fitting a whole new exhaust to my wagon and I can’t for the life of me figure out how these little exhaust clips work to secure the rod shaped things to the rubber hangers https://m.eeuroparts.com/Parts/10516/Exhaust-Mount-Clip-92152112/ I can’t get them on like...at all, tried...
  9. ABS falsely activated at low speeds?

    9-5 Workshop
    I've been chasing a grinding issue coming from my brakes when braking from less than 30 mph when I finally got the lightbulb moment where I realized it is the ABS coming on for no reason! I confirmed this by pulling the ABS fuse and the problem went away. Anyone experience this before? I have...
  10. Not getting up to temp after thermostat

    9-5 Workshop
    Oh I just realized I don’t use the auto feature very properly. I only ever use it when the car is initially heating up. This way, the ACC doesn’t blast cold air and the fan adjusts automatically and when the fan speed gets to 4 or 5 I just turn auto off Either way I will be trying to monitor it...
  11. Not getting up to temp after thermostat

    9-5 Workshop
    When I tested it after the thermostat replacement I took it for a drive 5-10 mins with no heat and it was up to temp. I stopped and put it in to park, put the heat on blast and the temp fell a bit. I’m not sure why I feel this is abnormal but I’ve also owned different 9-5’s for 5+ years now and...
  12. Not getting up to temp after thermostat

    9-5 Workshop
    https://m.eeuroparts.com/Parts/10654/Engine-Coolant-Thermostat-88C-30577561/ That was the thermostat I used, it’s not ‘Genuine Saab’ but eEuro does list it as OEM instead of aftermarket I have a tech 2 for live data. Should I be looking for differences in what the temp gauge reads and the...
  13. Not getting up to temp after thermostat

    9-5 Workshop
    I’m not finding any instructions online on how to flush the heater core specifically. Im also noticing that people do this when there is no heat in the cabin but I do not have that problem
  14. Not getting up to temp after thermostat

    9-5 Workshop
    By head do you mean the coolant reservoir?
  15. Not getting up to temp after thermostat

    9-5 Workshop
    My ‘03 aero hasn’t been able to quite stay up to temp when turning the heat on or some times at highway speeds. Seemed like a classic thermostat problem so I replaced that but the issue still persists. I made sure the bleeder valve is facing towards the sky I’ve also replaced the coolant bypass...

  17. Transmission hose

    9-5 Workshop

  19. Fuel line replacement from tank to filter

    9-5 Workshop
    Definitely took some patience, and I loosened the upper most gas tank strap to lower it a bit
  20. Fuel line replacement from tank to filter

    9-5 Workshop
    Anyone do this without dropping the tank? The 19mm banjo is rusted/seized/rounded to the filter, and I have a spare line available If not possible, how difficult is it to drop the tank? It is relatively empty, < 3ish gallons
