  1. ACC Noise

    9-5 Workshop
    Hello all! Since buying my 2001 95 wagon, I havent ever had the cabin fans work. It has been pretty temperate by me so I hadn't gotten around to finally tackling it until this week. I ran the ACC calibration and came up with 08/14 codes- read a TON on this forum and wound up fixing both of...
  2. New member - gearbox / clutch issue

    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...
  3. Grinding Noise

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I've got a grinding noise coming from inside the driver-side wheel well and can't figure out where it's coming from :evil: I've replaced the axle, the bearing, removed the dust shield completely, checked the brake caliper and pads, and the noise is still there! It happens at all speeds, it had...
  4. Is this noise serious?

    9-5 Workshop
    Every now and then I can hear a distorted metallic sssshhhh rattle from the left hand side of the car. It seems to happen more after lifting off throttle. From hearing the sound, if I roll in neutral it will stop after 5-10 seconds or so. I first noticed this noise after having a noobtune remap...
  5. Grinding noise after hitting a pothole

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I was driving on a slightly muddy dirt road in my 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0t when I hit a medium sized pothole and a grinding noise started up near the front left wheel of the car. When it first happened it was a intermittent and loud scraping sound (speeds around 25-30) as I continued driving, the...
  6. '97 NG900s Grinding Sound When Steering

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi All, I did a quick search of the forum for related problems, but I didn't find anything that sounded similar... Anyway, it's a 97 900s, 255k km, and I recently had it tuned up a saab-specific garage. Among several other repairs, including a cooling overhaul, I had the front brakes...
  7. Grinding Gears in 3rd and Reverse

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    The car is a 99 9-3 Base. I've been having gears grinding when I shift into 3rd (while moving), and reverse (when stopped, completely). No matter how gently I shift, it still does it. It doesn't happen every time, but enough that I know it isn't just me not pushing the clutch all the way to the...
  8. Grinding noise plus beat when braking

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello. I've read a bit about other people's grinding sounds and front brakes. One of my front brakes is grinding, and then there's a beat on top of that. When I hit this "beat" spot, I can feel the brake pedal move under my feet. The brakes, rotors, calipers, pads were installed new about...
  9. Mysterious Grinding Noises...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I know nothing of air systems and nearly nothing about engines, please don't use any technical lingo/info or it'll just go over my head. Thank you. I have a 2001 9-3. Recently, it has begun to make a very odd grinding, rotating noise (the grinding occurs every two seconds or so, on and off). I...
  10. I've come to the conclusion...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    That my front hub bearings are SHOT. And I don't mean a bit of a hint of a grind, I mean, they grind and you can feel it in the steering wheel. (Anything else it could be?) Grinds whenever the car is in motion - brakes applied, or not - in gear or not - reverse or forward, and is timed...
  11. Clicking + Grinding in front end = Heaps of fun!

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I used to love my Saab because it was a fun car to drive. I now *have to* love it because I still own it, it's my only vehicle, but it's out of comission due to a problem that recently has escalated to code orange. Note: Not quite red, but gettin' there. Here's the scoop: 1999 9-3 SE, vert...
  12. Driver side window broken

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi, I have a 2005 9-3 Linear and I tried to roll down my power driver side window the other days it was sticking a little but would still roll down. The today I rolled it down and it got stuck about half way down. In order to get it back up I had to pull on the actual glass while holding the...
