  1. Wheels & Tires
    Hello, I have a 2005 9-3 arc. It loves to chew right through the inside of tires. Whenever I put a new set on the techs come up with excuses as to why they can't give me a 4 wheel alignment. Yesterday the tech said the eccentric rear bolts are frozen and if I replace those with new ones they...

    Hello, Does anyone know the dia, thread pitch, and length of the two bolts which mount the power-steering pump to the head? (2005 9-3) I accidentally snapped one over-tightening :nono; I can only find older model bolts by searching online. * I think its M8 x 1.25 x 25mm 8.8 grade I believe...

    Does anyone know where I can source the bolt or an equivalent that secures the neutral safety switch in place?

    The bolts on the bottom of my AC compressor are giving me hell, I can't get them to budge. I need to move it to fit a new wiper linkage in. I don't have a breaker bar but even if I had one I really doubt I could fit in the small space, there's barely clearance for my wrench. Any ideas for...
  5. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey Saab Central! Today I became the proud owner of a 2002 Saab 93 Viggen. I am very new to a manual transmission and have spent the entire day practicing. As I was backing out of my driveway I heard a loud sound of metal under serious duress. I immediately stopped the car and looked under to...
  6. 9000 Workshop
    Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone could give me some info on removing the gearbox cover/ sub-frame mount on manual transmission for a 1995 9000 Aero. I was trying replace the transmission mount bushing the other day and sheared one of the bolts that hold the U-clamp that holds the transmission...

    Does anybody know what bolt to use with the power steering pulley? My power steering pump seized up and sheered the bolt for the pulley. I found this one, but I am unsure about using it as it says it is for the tensioner pulley. http://www.eeuroparts.com/Parts/33771/Belt-Tensioner-Bolt-8098378/

    Had an alignment done, drives better but still pulls to the right. Is the camber off enough to cause this? I realize it still might pull even with the camber bolt if the tires have uneven wear. Top is before, bottom is after alignment. Thanks.

    Alas, after finally removing the input shaft my clutch replacement journey leads me to removing the slave cylinder. I managed to get two of the three allen bolts out, but there is one that is giving me a lot of trouble. It's the one on the driver's side of the car towards the underside of the...

    I can't find my bag of new head bolts so after a bit of panicing I've decided I'll just have to re-use the old ones. Now I have no idea how to tell if they've stretched and I'm trying to find what the maximum length can be. I'm remembering 125 mm as the number but is that correct? Craig.
