  3. 9000 starter in 9-5

    9-5 Workshop
    Can a 9000 starter (2L) be used in a 9-5? The 9000 starter is from a '93 9k CD. I tried to compare them and they seem pretty much identical apart from the body (the actual motor) being slightly bigger/longer. The solenoid is also slightly bigger, but the 3 screws seem to e in exactly the same...

  6. Anyone have experience with the TD04 rebuild kit from SaabPerformanceParts

    9000 Workshop
    Hi everyone, I recently purchased a second 9000 Aero after I discovered that the rust on my first 9000 was beyond repairing.

  7. Need advice on A/C bearing/ Short Belt

    9000 Workshop
    Hello my A/C compressor bearing is beginning to get a little noisy, just loud enough to hear over the running engine to my hare like ear but when using a stethoscope you can hear it growling a bit. (nothing crazy though) I'm trying to explore my options but I can't find any definitive...
  8. Question about door handle parts

    9000 Workshop
    So I ran into the problem of the exterior door handle not opening the door. I went to fix it and accidentally broke the "arm" to the driver side front door handle.

  17. Replace the heater core. Then what?

    9000 Workshop
    Hello! I suspect that my heater core is leaking, because this winter I have had coolant getting to the inside of the windscreen of my 9000 and now the A/C won't work. It was hard to remove, and tasted sweet. So I guess it is coolant, which always disappears in my car (might have a blown head...
