  1. C900 Workshop
    So I purchased a 1990 SPG a couple years ago. Had a couple of SPG's in the late 90's while delivering pizzas, but never did any work on them myself and ended up getting rid of them. I guess I felt intimidated by them at the time. Fast forward 30 years, and I bought another one and forgot how...
  2. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello, Recently bought an '07 9-3 and it's been great so far! I bought it knowing it had a rear main seal leak and that it was still on the original clutch at 190k miles. Surprisingly, the clutch still feels super smooth and overall quite good. However, I recently started hearing a noise that I...
  3. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I recently bought a 2006 9-3 Aero Convertible with the 6-speed manual transmission. The clutch has started slipping and I am looking for a replacement, wondering what my options are. I have been reading about a few options, using Buick Regal clutch parts, Fidanza flywheel with a Cobalt clutch...
  4. C900 Workshop
    The problem: My clutch master cylinder has been failing every 6-12 months like clockwork now three times. Mechanic has told me that it's because the holes in the clutch pedal actuator (where the clovis pin connects with the pedal rod) are worn. In my mind, these holes are "oval" shaped leaving...
  5. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi everyone, My car is a 2009 9-3 XWD 2.0T 6-speed. With my clutch not disengaging completely thus making shifts extremely hard, I have concluded that a clutch job is in order as it is either the pressure plate or the slave. Anyhow, I saw this kit on RockAuto for an LUK clutch with a slave...
  6. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So as an update the 05’ Arc is getting a complete engine rebuild. Smoked the piston rings and the cylinder wall had some lines. So she’s getting bored out and built. Bearings, pistons, the whole shebang. Now I’m looking towards my clutch and flywheel as the weak points of the build. Car has 156k...
  7. 9-5 Workshop
    Hey all, So today I finished the build on my 9-5 Arc. As i’m about to take it home, i noticed that the clutch pedal was very light. What made that weird was that I got a Spec Stage 2+ clutch so i knew it should’ve been heavier. After noticing that, i turned it on, put it in reverse and it went...

  10. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey ... it’s just crazy to me how first I bought a used 2002 Saab 9-3 turbo 2.0 engine... the crazier thing is that my car has way more problems than the last had mentioned . I’m not really smart with cars so Idk how to check if my cruise works. but my check engine light and the other one has...
  11. 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...

  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi - I’m Richard, just bought my first Saab (‘97 900S) a week or so ago. First week all good (apart from a few minor and easily-sorted niggles), until ... Engaging and changing gear has got really horrible over the last day of two, particularly pulling away from standstill (forwards or...
  17. 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...
  18. 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...
  19. 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...
