  1. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    So I’ve got a 2002 9-3 with just under 200k miles on it. I’ve been plagued with problems since I got it, clutch blew out my second day of ownership and then the sludge problem surfaced. My SAAB mech told me all about the sludge problem, then to put dropping the pan and cleaning the screen out...
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    Hey all, quick question regarding steering wheels. Will a 2006 steering wheel work in a 2002 car? (Both are 9-5 steering wheels) I love the look of the 3 spoke steering wheels and I want one in my 2002 aero but I don't want to mess anything up. Thanks.

  5. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi Folks... Just a quick question. The right rear door regulator (actually, the small plastic/metal sliding thing) broke on my 2002 SAAB 9-3 Hatchback. Is the common wisdom to [1] try using the aftermarket Ebay replacement part/kit (Item # 322217781721) to replace just the broken part; [2]...

    Just got a 2002 9-3 SE a couple days ago. I replaced the DIC and spark plugs with NGK Laser Platinums from O'Reilly's because of a misfire code. The engine was idling smooth before I replaced the plugs and DIC but there was a noticeable increase in performance afterwards. I took it back to my...

    Hey, ya'll. If you check my posts, you can see what is up. I can really use some assistance. Fresh battery, oil change, good coolant. Current concern is changing out the DIC & plugs, not such an issue. Need to check the oil sump & PCV lines - any help around?
