  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey all, The passenger footwell recently started filling up with water. I’ve unclogged the drains and replaced the seal around the cabin air filter housing. However, I noticed in the video tutorials that most 9-3s have a second plastic “splash guard” that goes in between the larger upper...

    Hello, Wondering if anyone could point out a fix for an oil leak I’ve recently discovered. Attached pictures: After degreasing the underside of the engine, I discovered the leak weeping from a small hole in this gasket. (I’m not sure what this gasket is for) It started trickling out slowly...

    So this has been a battle for a year now, but my roof is leaking. I am very new to this forum posting wise, but I have read so many posts about this same issue. That being said I have tried to waterproof and retreat my rubber seals but the leak still is there. Three days ago I used 303 canvas...

    I bought my 2001 9-5 about three years ago and have been dealing with the oil leak since day one. The engine was caked up with oil from underneath. I have replaced some parts to address the leak issue, but it looks like none of the parts I replaced were the leading cause of the oil leak...

    Curious to know what kind of oil consumption issues you all have or don't have and what the mileage/condition of your vehicle is. I have an unmodified 2007 9-3 2.0T. Had the original clutch and leaky rear main seal replaced about 2-3 months/ 3,000 miles ago. At the same time I did an oil/filter...

    Hi, ever since I picked up my 08' TX wagon, I have been having issues with coolant use. When I say "use" I mean around a gallon every 100 miles. The car is basically un-driavable in this state and the only sign of a coolant leak is from behhind the coolant overfllow, pointed twards the driver...

    Hi. When the car is cold, if I floor it, the turbo gauge goes to the red part and even above it and stays there. After the car warms up a bit the turbo gauge doesn't even touch the red part, stays like a millimeter below it. Also when I suddenly floor it, the needle jerks a bit to a bit higher...

    Hello, I have a 2007 9-5 2.3t. My 9-5 was leaking oil from valve cover, which I thought was the only place leaking. Valve cover gasket now replaced, no more oil on the engine head, but the leakage didn't stop. Soon I found out that this little hose was driping oil: I wiped it off couple of...
  13. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    As might be obvious from the fact that I'm posting numerous questions on different topics in the span of a day, I'm finally getting around to trying to get my car ship-shape. I was looking at the dried liquid that had settled on top of my transmission, and had been an idiot and assumed it was...

    9-3 1.9 TiDS 2008 (Z19DTH) Steering pump is leaking between the pump and reservoir. I have a spare pump unit and would like to change the whole thing. WIS says that I need remove old and add new with Tech. Is this necessary or can I just swap them?

    1998 9-3 SE I have a coolant leak, steering fluid leak, and found two plastic things rolling around in the engine (see photos). Does anyone know what they are and if they are related? Not a mechanic at all. Will need to take it to the same shop that did both the radiator and steering work. Sad...

    I'm having an odd issue with my 05 Linear where around every 3 months or so the rear passenger brake caliper starts to leak where the parking brake cable connects. This all started after the caliper was replaced by a local chain shop. I've since had them replace caliper 3 times and now I've got...
