  5. Front suspension - Lower control arm bushing

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi All, The rubber grommet/bushing on the front right lower control arm is pretty much gone (The wheel has about 2 inches of play in it when I roll it forward/backward :o). I don't want to buy a new control arm, since the arm itself is fine. Is there anyway to buy a new bushing for it and...

  7. PU bushings any good?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi there. Anyone with an opinion if an "upgrade" to PU (Poly Urethane) bushings is worth while? I am about to replace number (2) with 2 Powerflex PU bushes as it seems that some of my rubber bushes has aged (melted?) and as Powerflex are cheaper (utilizing some of the old metal parts), are...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    My front sway bar bushings need to be replaced. I can't seem to fit ANYTHING onto the nuts to loosen them. I've heard that dropping the sub frame needs to be done. Can someone outline the procedure for dropping the sub frame? Thank you in advance to anyone who has help.
  11. Wiper Linkage - Saab 9-3, 2.0T

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    My passenger side wiper stopped working so I pulled up the cowling below the window and found the arm (where it's supposed to attach to the motor) swinging freely. In the arm were the partial remains of a dome-shaped piece of whitish plastic and, in the tray below, were a few other pieces...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I need to replace the bushings on the lower control arms in my rear suspension. This is not the rear bushing on the front control arms. I have replacement upper control arms already and just noticed that the sub-frame end bushing and the wheel hub end bushings on the lower control arms are...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi Saab People, While changing the clutch on my 1997 900SE recently I noticed that the drivers-side inner CV joint was loose - when I grabbed it with my hand, it would move a bit. So much that it was leaking a bit of transmission oil! I poked around on, and discovered that...
