  1. No Sound - Driver's Side Speakers

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    I have a 2003 Saab 9-3 Vector with the Prestige 300 sound system - so 13 speakers total. Like most others, I think the sound quality is ok and the fiberoptic amps are dumb. I'm fairly familiar with the system, so I'm aware of the AMP 1 problems, as well as using the power button to fade to one...
  2. ACM B0097 05 - Driver Seat Belt Sensor

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    This is for a 2004 convertible. So I had an Airbag System Error pop up on the SID today. I connected my Mongoose Cable and got the code above - ACM B0097 05 - Driver Seat Belt Sensor. This is apparently related to the buckle sensor or its wiring. I do not move my drivers seat very often so I...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey guys, new to the forum and Saabs in general. Had a few Volvo's but haven't had a Saab up till now. I just got the car in trade for one of my old projects. 05 with 105k miles on it. The issue I'm having is that the drivers door controls have gone wacky on me. The driver window goes up and...
  5. Inner driver circlip size

    C900 Workshop
    I've got a 1990 900S with a right inner driver which I can move in and out of the transmission by hand by about a half inch. I had the tripod bearing and inner driver replaced in May and it seems obvious now that the shop neglected to install the circlip which holds the assembly in place...
  6. Clunking noise, Drive Shaft or Axle?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello, Sometime this winter I heard a clunking sound under the driver's side wheel well area, took it in to a local Saab shop, the car was put on a lift, and a mechanic grabbed and shook the axle. It seemed very loose. The axle was new. It had been installed end of June 2012 by my general...
  7. A/C issues-blowing cold driver side only fix

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I just wanted to "enlighten" with my 2 cents about my recent A/C troubles. I did numerous searches, and came up with empty answers about what could be wrong or how to fix the problem without a warranty coverage. My initial problem was my driver vent was ice cold, but the vent got hotter moving...

  10. What is a typical Saab driver/owner?

    The Lounge
    I am planning to buy a car next year and yet I am analysing what kind of cars I like to search into depth. Although I know Saab isn't going that well (on the financial side), I am curious about the Saab models. I really like them, but I am not sure if I will fit into the Saab culture. So I am...

  14. how to disable driver's seat memory?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I recently began driving a 1999 Saab 9-3 four-door that someone else had driven. I got in, adjusted the seat (forward and up, since I'm shorter than the previous driver) and drove. (POSSIBLY I had fiddled with the M1,2,3,4 buttons but I don't remember doing so). A few minutes later, as I drove...
