  1. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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...
