    Hello, I own a 1999 9-3 Base with an automatic transmission. I was told that my belt tensioner, idler pully, and belt need replacing. My question is, would this be difficult to do myself and does anyone have any videos that may be helpful?

    I have a little over 60k on my Wazees Billet Idler Pulley (http://wazees.com/saab.html). The Wazees website says it uses a standard 2603 Bearing (use snap ring pliers, then replace bearing). Where can I procure a replacement bearing, and is there a particular size or variant I should use? I...

    I am having the most incredibly awful time trying to replace my idler pulley. The space is extremely tight and no standard tools seem to fit in the space provided. Is there an access panel anywhere? I have tried cutting down a 6mm allen wrench and i got it to fit in the space but still no...

    My 98 9k cse turbo has developed an interesting problem. It stalls occasionally but only after it is warmed up. From a cold start, there is no stalling. At first I thought the stalling was related to the IAC so I cleaned it using the procedure I got here. Now, I have come to realize that the...
  7. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi, I recently purchased a 2003 Saab 9-5 4cyl 2.3T. I took it to my local Saab dealer to get an oil change the other day. It had been having trouble idling at stop lights. It kind or "putters" and sometimes seems like it is going to "conk out" although it hasn't yet. The Saab dealer gave me...
  8. 9-5 Workshop
    My 2.3t eco automatic seems to make a squeak squeak noise in the morning when I start her up when it is colder. The noise goes away after the car is heated up. The noise also is coming from the left side of the engine from the serpentine belt/ pulley area. Is this probably an idler pulley? Or my...
  9. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi all, just want to share my experience with my idler pulley. I was hearing this rattling/ball bearing going bad sound coming from one of my pulleys when the engine was running. I squirted some WD40 in there to make it stop making so much noise and made a note that I need to get a new one...
  10. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    The idler pulley on my '94 GM900 disintegrated on the motorway last weekend and of course took the belt out with it. Long story short: one very happy small son who got a lift home in a breakdown truck. Now that I've sourced a new belt and pulley, I can't seem to get at the bolt that holds what's...
