  1. C900 Workshop
    Fellow SAABers, I just rebuilt my 1989 SPG engine with some great mods for speed and efficiency - a build that was 9 years in the making, and the engine is a thing of beauty, purrs like a kitten mostly, with only a few hours on the clock. The issue here starts with a "trackmotive" aftermarket...
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    I will soon be replacing struts and control arms, which means that I'll be "in the neighborhood" of the toothed ring that drives the ABS. I know that at least one side's (passenger) ring has cracked creating low-speed phantom ABS actuation. AFAIK both axles are original on a 155k car (I'm 2nd...

  9. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    1999 9-3 Automatic I'm replacing the sway bar end link on the driver side, and when I go to pry the swaybar upwards in order to fit the end link, the travel is limited by the rubber 'donut' on the drive axle. This rubber piece sits between the outer CV joint and the inner one. This donut doesn't...

    Hey guys! I have a 1998 900 SE Turbo with just shy of 200K and I noticed a quite loud popping noise in the front driver side when I went over bumps. Upon further inspection I found that the axle was quite loose, so I took everything apart to allow me to remove the axel. The problem is that...
  11. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I'm new to this forum and have no idea where to post. So if this is in the wrong spot, I'm sorry. I really need help figuring out how to properly replace my front axles. My cv joint keeps clicking and making funny noises and I decided to just replace both sides. My question is... When I take it...
  12. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello friends. Last night, my car decided to break down on me (2008 Turbo X). Nothing electrical this time, straight up front axle snapped due to something loose in the suspension components, probably the strut. It all started a few months ago with this...

    Help. I'm trying to replace a wheel bearing and I can't get the 32mm nut off the axle. I've tried everything up to, and including, the biggest breaker bar I can find with my considerable weight on the end.... Nothing. Any tips or tricks..... Thanks. John
  14. 9000 Workshop
    So I found a CV boot torn and am in the process of replacing it. I have the axle off the car and am trying to get the circlip out and have had no luck. At this point buying a whole new axle seems like the better investment than the process of trying to get this apart. The question I have is...
  15. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have a 2000 9-3 with 5spd manual. I have a pronounced rumble while driving. If I turn the wheel to the left at any speed, I can make the noise go away. Removed wheel this am and inspected. The inner cv joint housing that goes into the transmission is loos and wobbling. The cv Shaft...
  16. 9-5 Workshop
    What is the trick for getting the splined axle into the transmission? (and likewise the passenger side axle into the intermediate shaft.) I can insert the axle as far as the tip of the splines (I know this because turning the axle engages the intermediate shaft or the transmission), but cannot...
  17. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Driving. It Broke Down. Figured it was a CV Joint so I bought a new one. Upon installation That Spindle Gear COG Thing on the inside of the Gearbox where the CV joint would go in was really loose. I put My finger in there to center it and it moved completely out of the way like two inside on...
  18. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello, Sometime this winter I heard a clunking sound under the driver's side wheel well area, took it in to a local Saab shop, the car was put on a lift, and a mechanic grabbed and shook the axle. It seemed very loose. The axle was new. It had been installed end of June 2012 by my general...

    Recently I replaced the Driver side Axle on the 9-5 V6 and thought it would be a good idea to change the axle seal that goes into the transmission. So I ended up ordering this Timken Part # 4764 Transmission-Automatic Seal. Thinking it was the right one I noticed that the existing seal looked...

    My daughters 1993 9000CS 2.3 non-turbo has very noisy CV joints. (I thought it was a bad bearing, but the noise persists after bearing replacement...) New axles are $92, rebuilt are $58 at eeuroparts. Does anyone have any experience or reason not to use rebuilt? Or false economy just spent the...
