  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    well, the title says it all. I have a 2006 9-3 arc convertible with the 2.0t 4 cyl. does it have a timing chain or belt?
  2. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Stop me before I blow it up - does this look right to you guys? I've timed it twice before (don't ask) and was fine, but never took pictures, and this time I'm more paranoid for some reason. I do not have excessive slack on the chain, the tensioner is still within limits. Here's how I got this...

  4. 9-5 Workshop
    When I first start my 2004 9-5 wagon, it makes a weird ratcheting sound for about 30 seconds until it is warm. It then goes away and never really comes back until the next morning. The car has 115,000 miles. I am thinking some chain (timing chain?). Thanks for any help. I have posted a video...
  5. 9-5 Workshop
    me and my father were replacing the timing chain, and while tieing the new one to the old one. we got about halfway around the crankshaft and what we used to tie the two broke and now the old one is off and the new one is off. is there any way to put the new timing chain on without the old one...
  6. C900 Workshop
    For those of you who've done timing chain replacements, and used a masterlink-type chain, what did you use to crimp in the masterlink (and perhaps get the old chain seperated, if it had a masterlink too)? I know there's a Saab tool out there for that job, but they're hard to find. I can...

    I have a 2004 9-3 with the 2.0t. 94K miles. I recently had the timing chain, tentioners, guides and water pump chain replaced. Both chains are tight with very little slack. The car runs fantastic except for one thing, When I accelate and the turbo nears the red line, I get a pinging noise...

  10. Parts for Sale/Wanted - North America
    I am looking for a timing chain tensioner for 2002 Saab 9-5 Aero. I was checking the timing chain wear on my car with 12mm cap off of it, and while I was doing that- I LOST the spring that goes inside the tensioner. It's probably sitting in the blackhole-like crack between the engine block and...
  11. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi, another question? When do you change the timing belt or chain at a 2002 Saab 95, 2.3? My Saab has approx. 85k miles and I don't want any bad surprises. The leaking problem is enough :( All help is appreciated. Thank you, Markus
