  2. 2000 Saab 9-3 SE--clutch problem,stuck in reverse

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    The last few times I drove the car, I noticed a faint whirring noise when depressing the clutch pedal, but everything still worked okay. I parked the car, not attempting to start it for a month. When I finally did try, the clutch pedal went straight to the floor and would not pop up--so, no way...

  4. 2000 Saab 9-3 SE--Clutch problem, stuck in reverse

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hope this is the right spot for the question. I've got a 2000 9-3 SE with 70k miles. A few months ago I noticed a whirring sound as I changed gears and figured the fluid was low or the clutch was going out. Also, I noticed a spot of clear fluid under the car. For a variety of reasons I had...
  5. 2.8T F40 Clutch, Pressure Plate, and Flywheel Stack Height

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    This is probably the more appropriate sub forum for this question as I posted in the generic 9-3 forum. Does anyone here have a new or busted up stock 2.8T pressure plate, flywheel, and clutch that could be measured for overall stack height? I'm attempting to find out if the stock...
  6. 2.8T F40 Clutch, Flywheel, Pressure Plate Stack Height

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I'm in the middle of a custom swap ATS-V 3.6 Twin Turbo LF4 into a 1988 Fiero GT. The Saab F40 6speed bolts right up to the LF4 however with the 450-650hp this engine can put out is probably too much for the stock Saab dual mass flywheel and clutch. Looking into upgraded units over the stock...

  8. 1997 saab 900se Convertible Clutch Issue

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey there. So I was able to get the top issue straightened out and brake lines replaced. Thank you all for that. So, my next huge concern is the clutch/shifting. The friend that gave me this car, told me the car shifted great until the clutch cable broke last year. His mechanic replaced the...
  9. Extremely hard clutch and stubborn shifting when weather is hot/car is warmed up

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Car: 94 NG900 SE Turbo Ever since my dad and I changed out the clutch I have been experiencing problems when the weather is hot or if the car is driven for long periods at a time. The clutch action feels extremely hard and "sticky" (The best way I can describe the feeling is it's almost like a...
  10. Clutch Problem

    C900 Workshop
    I drive a Saab 900T from 1991. When driving I frequently experience problems getting into and out of 1st and 2nd gear. If I then lift my foot off the clutch pedal once, and press it down again it works fine. The longer I drive the car the more frequent the problem gets. I would appreciate any...
  11. Clutch pedal low after recent work

    C900 Workshop
    ‘88 900 5 speed. I had to periodically add brake fluid to the reservoir. I let my son have the car for a week and he returned it saying he couldn’t shift gears. The clutch pedal went to the floor with no return. The reservoir was empty. I filled it but saw no change. I took to a reputable Saab...
  12. Clutch and Gauge Cluster Suggestions

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    First off, a story. My Saab finally stranded me on the backside of Mt. Hood in Oregon, the one place Verizon has no reception. I thought it was the belt tensioner that went bad (it happened several years ago) as the belt had come off and been shredded. I had it towed to my buddy who has done...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    So I just started the car without pressing the clutch in and to my surprise, there is no safety switch on my car, the car started reversing! My car was shifting fine before this accident happened, but now I have trouble getting it in gear, especially in reverse. ( not very practical with these...

  15. Clutch on 2005 9-3 Aero

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello I have a 2005 saab 9-3 aero witch i think has a bad clutch. The problem is that the clutch feels too soft. When the car is on, and you press in the clutch to go into gear, it goes in gear but once realising the clutch, the car doesn't go. The car won't stall. As if the clutch was always...

    C900 Workshop
    Hi all, picked up an '87 900S 16V 2 door sedan(notchback?) a couple months back. Pretty rare I think! Anyways, it was driving and shifting fine until about 2 weeks ago I started to hear the throwout bearing squeal. It had always had a pretty soft clutch but when the throwout bearing started to...
  17. 2.0T clutch replacement

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've just had my 9-3 Aero tuned up to the Maptun stage 2 (255bhp/370Nm) and noticed quite bad clutch slip during high torque phases. Maptun do not specifically recommend the uprated clutch for stage 2 that they sell which is rated up to 450Nm so I presume my clutch was on its way out anyway and...

    Hi all, Over the last 11 months I've been working on a 1994 9000 aero with a blown headgasket and leaking clutch slave. The very last night I need to do to get running is bleed the clutch system. I topped up the reservoir to begin bleeding and realized it's basically just pouring into the...

    New Member Introductions
    Well hi, my name is Garrett and I'm a Saabaholic. I'e owned a 2008 9-3 aero for about a year now and over the years I've read between 40-100 posts here.
