  1. Anyone with experience of Saabs in Belgium?

    The Lounge
    I'm looking for a good Saab garage or mechanic in Hainaut, I'm located in Mons. There is the ex-Saab, now Opel, Willems in Mons which is convenient my Belgian neighbour says they are expensive and not that good. The Saab I need to get fixed is my 2007 9-3 convertible. Would really appreciate...

    Moved to Workshop - can't see how to delete this post. FAQ says go to edit, but there is no delete option here in my view.
  3. Electrical nightmares- Help! - '94 900s convertible

    C900 Workshop
    Hi all, I'm looking for some advice as I'm really lost on what to do at this point. The back story is this: I had the old AC lines on my car replaced along with the evaporator, etc to update the system to R134a from the original R12 freon by my usual Saab specialist mechanic. He is a...
  4. Wheel arch dent repair

    C900 Workshop
    Well, a few months back during the colder months someone at my college's parking lot was a bit reckless about getting out of their spot and left a late Christmas present on the passenger side wheel arch my '87 900 T16 . I was absolutely infuriated... of all the places to get dented on this car...
  5. TX 2.8T V6, Denso Iridium spark plug exploded, engine damage, anyone???

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    My "old" TXss did get a good treatment, all services done and lately all 6 coils replaced and 6 new Denso Iridium Longlife spark plugs. Last weekend the car developed a problem and went into what I believed was Limp Mode. Now with dealer, the Saab certified mechanic states the one spark plug has...
  6. Xenon headlamp shipping caution

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    This is a long post but for a reason. My 04 vert has factory xenons but one of them has some issues (right side). I recently made two purchases of used OEM (2003-2007) Xenon headlamp assemblies. I purchased both passenger and driver side units. These were complete units with housing, ballast...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello Saab community, I had a front end collision on Friday. I ran into a pickup and my headlights smashed into his chrome/rubber bumper. Fortunately it was low-impact, no one got hurt and the other vehicle drove away w/o damage. My Saab, on the other hand, needs work. The headlight lens...
  8. Sunroof Smashed???

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Something happened to my sunroof. We've had some insane winds and I returned to my car to find it cracked. Regardless of how it happened I need to find a replacement. There is no sign of material or something that would damage it. I think it was because of pressure. Do you know if insurance...
  9. Look at this lower control arm - salvageable or toast?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I'm changing my struts, outer tie rod ends and renewing the ball joint boot covers on my 1998 900-S 2.3L SAAB today and I saw my passenger side ball joint housing on the lower control arm looked like this when I took the torn boot off: You can see the dents in it at 9 and 6 o'clock. There's...
