  1. shifter modifications

    9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    I've been eyeballing the taliaferro short shift kit and it started to make me think, would it be possible to (in addition to shortening the throw with the ss kit) shorten the height and fit an aftermarket knob? Of course I would sew a new boot to fit the shortened shifter. The main thing...
  2. Trip Odometer Button & Infotainment Knob Acting Up

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello all, For some time now the infotainment button (see picture attached) has just not worked the way it should. It doesn't seem to be making good contact and when I turn it the console just goes all over the place. I particularly hate it when I have to reset the time, it will take me a...
  3. Shift Knob Leather Replaced

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    My shift knob leather was pretty rough. The stitching came undone, and then it ripped. I was looking to just replace the whole knob, but after struggling to remove it and doing some research (finding I was lucky it was still intact and glued on so tightly) I decided just to recover it. Cost me...
  4. Gear Shift Removal

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Yes I did a search already 06 Aero 6speed manual. How do I get the shifter off without hacking it up. I redid the leather and cannot get it back on properly without removing the shifter first. Thanks
  5. Switch/Knob Bounce

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey, this might be a common issue but I searched for a little while and I didn't know how to describe it without being too general and getting shift knob issues and the lot. So basically when I use either of the dials (not the volume so far) the dial seems to "bounce" between options. When I...
  6. TWM Short Shifter and Bushings Install Walkthrough [PICS]

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    After 3 months of being fed up with the awkward, vague and notchy stock shifter, I decided it was time for a change. After researching the both GS Short Shift Kit and the TWM Short Shift Kit I decided I would take the plunge for the TWM, considering it reduced both height and throw, noticably...
  7. 2007 9-5 Aero Radio Volume Knob?

    9-5 Workshop
    I'm really looking for some help here. I recently bought a 2007 9-5 Aero and have had it in the shop for a couple of minor adjustments. I am extremely fussy when it comes to rattles, noises, and the general condition of my car. That being said, I need to find a replacement for the volume knob...
  8. Vent knobs broken

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I think I know the answer to this, but if there any relatively easy to way to replace my vent knobs above the radio and I think the passenger side one is also broke. (I could care less about the knobs, but it makes the interior look ghetto.) It's not worth replace the radio obviously. What...
  9. Jammed Vent Selector Knob?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey everyone, So I have been working installing a new head stereo unit into my '98 900S. I don't know what I did or when I did it, but now my Vent selector knob is jammed. I have one of the manual analog round knob Temperature control units, not the digital one. I looked through where my stereo...
