  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan (2009) Wiper Not Working

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I got in my car two weeks ago after brushing a few inches of snow off my the windows and hood, and I tried to use the wipers to spray / wipe the rest of the flakes off. My passenger side wiper did just fine, but the drivers side wiper made a “pop” sound and didn’t move. I’m assuming it was...
  3. broken stud - cat converter to exhaust flex pipe

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I managed to break a stud. The one sticking out of the bottom of the converter. There's a nub left over. I tried a little to pound it up with a hammer and an air hammer, but I'm worried that I'm going to break the converter substrate loose. I also tried a tie rod tool to press it up, but it...
  4. Weird Turbo Noise / Extremely Low Boost

    9-5 Workshop
    Hey recently after driving on my car hard I have experienced a problem with the turbo. I drive a Saab 2005 9-5 Aero and the car used to be pretty fast, all I have done to it is an open air intake with a K&N High Flow Filter on it. But now the turbo makes an extremely loud screaming like noise...

  6. Oops, did I just do that?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    My radio reception has gotten kind of bad over the past few months. This is on my 04 vert. So I decided to try replacing the antenna mast which is supposed to just screw on or off. I ordered a replacement not OEM as they are backordered. So it came today and I tried to unscrew the old one and...
  7. 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. I've looked for replacement parts and the only thing I can find is the whole handle setup for $100 minimum, which is too expensive...
  8. Pothole killed my coil spring, recommendations?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hit a nice pothole last week, and jacked up the car and found this :x Priced a new OEM set of springs, but are the OEM ones of good quality or is there a better aftermarket coil?. I was also thinking of replacing the bearing and maybe the top plates? Am I missing anything else? Does the...
  9. Saab 9-5 AC blows only hot air

    9-5 Workshop
    Hello! I have a 9-5 that blows mostly hot air to passenger side. If temperature is set to lowest possible, it may sometimes blow also colder air, but mostly warm independent on the setpoint temperature on the panel. I read the fault codes by pressing OFF+AUTO, that showed error codes 1 and 10...

  13. 2003 9-5 Aero Transmission Trouble

    9-5 Workshop
    This isn't a common thing apparently, but the other day while city driving, my 9-5 suddenly started acting like it was in neutral. I managed to get it over to the side of the street with my momentum. I checked oil, trans fluid, etc and the trans fluid was over full (the mechanic would later say...
  14. Turns signals not working?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have an 04 9-3 linear. The turn signals don't work. They won't flash or make a noise. The emergency flashers work just fine. I can't turn my brights on either which leads me to believe that the switch is bad or disconnected. However, my cruise control does work. Any help would be...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi all, New to the forum but have previously owned a 900GM vert. I recently purchased a 2004 9-3 2.0t and the previous owner advised that the stereo (ICM2) simply stopped working a few weeks ago. The buttons light up with the rest of the dash but the screen is blank and won't fire up when you...
  17. Blinkers wont work? Fuse?

    9-5 Workshop
    Neither of my blinkers will work, it just randomly started as I started up the car, tried to turn it off and on a few times and it didn't help. I assume it is a fuse since they don't work at all, but I look through the fuses and did not see any specifically labeled "blinkers". Does anyone have...
  18. Right Rear Window Problem

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've searched around this site and read up on rollers, regulators, etc. Not sure which one applies to my car. I have a 2007 9-3 Aero. So I shut my right rear door the other day a little hard. Didn't think anything of it. Went for a drive and noticed the right rear window fell about an inch or...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I blew the fuse on the washer in the recent bad weather under desperation on the motorway to clear windscreen. After replacing the fuse, the pump works but its not as powerful as before, but does the job. Yesterday morning, I wanted to clear some pollen from the trees before setting off and the...
