  1. Wheels & Tires
    Just saw pics of these wheels and thought that they would also fit the Saabs of later decades: ATS Style 22 (also being sold as ARC ABWO) - If I could get them in 17" and the specs for my 9-5... Would be cool if the manufacturers offer some wheels of vintage design again - most of the...

    Hey everyone it’s been a long time since I’ve been on here but I’m finally ready to part with my baby. I have a 2004 Saab 9-3 linear with a bunch of extra goodies. An ex drove it with a coolant leak and the motor overheated and seized up. Was planning to rebuild but never got around to it so my...

  3. 9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Have gotten a lot of help from this forum in the past but just recently joined up haha. Just want to show off my 9-5 so far and see what everyone thinks. She's a 2005 9-5 Arc that I picked up for $800. Originally I was going to fix it up and flip it but after I had it roadworthy again I fell...
  4. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello, I am planning to upgrade my Arc brakes to Aero brakes. As far as I have read, the only difference between Arc and Aero brakes is the caliper bracket. I have some questions about part swapping. Did all 2006-2009 Saabs get the larger front brakes? Or do I specifically need to pull caliper...

    So my daughter's 9-3 has dropped A/C 2x's... the first time was after car wash, the 2nd time was a rain storm... So, the A/C just came back on it's own a week later the first time, we tried nothing... so we're in the waiting period again.... Any ideas at all where to start looking??? By...
  6. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello again. This time my 2004 9-5 Arc wagon recently died on the road. I was coasting down a hill and when I started to climb up the other side the car had lost basically all power. I would press the accelerator and the rpms would go down. So I coasted to the side of the road and sat, and as...
  7. 9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Hi All, I'm hoping someone can educate me on ECU swapping. Background I have a 2005 9-5 Arc, which I understand has the same engine and TD04 turbo as an Aero. I picked up a 2004 Aero ECU and I'm prepared to have it married via a Tech 2. I was recently informed that this swap may not go as...

    Hey everyone, I've got (2) brand new OEM front brake discs. They're the 288mm ones that fit on 9-5s from 1999-2009. I ordered them by accident for my Aero wagon. They don't fit that but should fit all non-Aero models. I think I paid around $70ea for them. I'm looking to offload them to...
  9. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    First post, Excited to see what people have to say. Ok, so I've had my 9-3 Arc for a few months, and I know I'm going to keep this car basically forever. It came red, but I decided to paint it satin black. Got to be the best car I've driven. On my many cruises I find myself wanting more from the...

  12. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    My question is I have a 05 Saab 9-3 CV B207R AUTO as I'm learning please correct me if I'm wrong. The 05 9-3 some Saabs were "upgraded" for the oil trap and stuff like that. Do I still have to change this part that goes inside the intake manifold it's for the sludge. Does this part comes with...
  13. My daily driver (9-5 Wagon)

    She has quite many kilometers on the clock (337k km), but she is happy. Surface rust can be seen on the wheel arch.
  14. 9-5 Workshop
    I'm looking to upgrade the rear suspension on my 2004 9-5 Arc wagon. The old suspension is sagging quite a bit, and I'm about to install a tow hitch and start towing small trailers. I'm worried that with the extra weight of a trailer, or even with a bit more time, the suspension will sag to the...
  15. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    My 2003 9-3T Arc bucks like a bucking bronco if left at the idle it starts with. Usually I try to give it a little gas to quiet it down and then it's fine afterwards. A couple of times I just left it alone (no extra gas) and it bucks for about 20 seconds. After it gets past this the engine...
  16. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey guys, so I own a 2003 9-3 2.0T Arc. Earlier this year I had a stage one tune made by Mike at MPS (great guy, super helpful with support). Car ran great and was making about 15 psi of boost (after fixing several vacuum leaks). Lately though I've been peaking at about 10.6 psi on average...

    I have a 2003 Saab Arc 9-5 3.0t 110k miles, perfect condition, always taken to the Saab dealership then to the GM, doesn’t show age, nothing aches, the only thing that’s wrong with it is very weird: While parking in reverse (or continuously driving backwards) the car howls, like a sad elephant...
  18. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello, my saab has not been able to start up with it's radio, display or a/c. The battery is perfectly fine and the car drives with no problem. The key does not make a clicking noise anymore. Fuses seem to be fine but if there are any recommendations I will make changes necessary. The backlight...

    I've been having some crazy issues with my 2003 9-5 V6 3.0, and it seems like every time I fix something, three more problems pop up. We are moving this weekend and I'm freaking out because I can't get the car started. This may be long, but I don't want to leave anything out. Thank you in...
  20. 9-5 Workshop
    I tried the search function and couldn't find anything specifically about the 2003 3.0t Arc, so I figured I'd just ask. In a matter of 4 minutes, I heard a squealing noise (belt shredding), lost power steering, and overheated (pouring coolant out of all over the road). Of course, the...
