  1. 9000 Workshop
    Hey everyone! On my 1989 9000 CD Turbo my "ABS" and my "Brake Fluid" lights are always on. Any quick and easy checks I can do before sending it to my specialist? Brake fluid is nice and full, pedal feels good. Haven't tested a panic stop yet. Thanks in advance!
  2. Auto Detailing & Body Repairs
    One of my headlights is oxidized in the interior because the rubber backing wasn't replaced correctly after the previous owner had a bulb changed. The light cover is sealed to the rest of the object. How I can I remove the cover without damaging it or the headlight body? How can I properly...
  3. 9000 Workshop
    Finally had the chance to get the 9k out on the road properly for a shake-down run. Tested the clutch and gear changing and all good. Tested the front brakes since I replaced rotors last time I was at the car in Feb, and that's all good too. Did about 50 km round trip with about 20 km on 110 kph...

    I would start looking at fuses for an electrical part that wouldn't turn ON, but what about a light that won't turn OFF??
  5. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Just got a 2002 9-3 SE a couple days ago. I replaced the DIC and spark plugs with NGK Laser Platinums from O'Reilly's because of a misfire code. The engine was idling smooth before I replaced the plugs and DIC but there was a noticeable increase in performance afterwards. I took it back to my...

    First post ever so I apologize if this info is on here already - I did quite a bit of searching already and can't find it. I'm trying to replace a rear tail light assembly (broken lens) on my 2006 9-3 Aero Cabrio and can't figure out how to remove the wiring harness. There is no obvious tab...

    First of all, I'd like to give a big ;ol; to this forum, has given me LOTS of useful info. Lately I've been driving in night quite a bit and my respect for good lighting has risen. I know, that some of the earlier 9-3s had cornering lights, that came on with the turn signal. Sadly, mine has...

  9. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Was involved in minor accident April 10, some body and undercarriage damage. The auto shop had it until May 9th when they said I could pick it up. When I did, the SID said "Rear Light Failure" so I walked back in and told them, they discovered that the reverse lights weren't working. They...
  10. 9-5 Workshop
    I picked up this car about six months ago. I immediately noticed that the headlights were two different "colors" of temperature: the driver side seems to be a bit warmer (more yellow) than my passenger side. While it was up on jack stands for an oil change today, I left the engine running. I...
  11. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I wanted to know if anyone had and/or solved this issue im having with my SID. When sitting in the drivers seat i can see that the SID is very dimly lit, which could mean that its getting power so the fuse could very well not be blown. I have the new style 2003 93 with the SID mounted on top...
  12. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello, all, long time lurker, first time poster. I'm a severe amateur, but this one is driving me nuts. About a year ago, I had my (now ex-) girlfriend's brother work on the 2002 Saab 9-3 that she gave me. He is a mechanic at... a chain, but unfortunately, he hated working on Saabs so much...
  13. 9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    ***I accidentally posted in the wrong forum. The car is a 2000 9-3.*** A few of my dash lights went out so I decided to replace them with LEDs. I took the instrument cluster insert out and tried out different LED light colors using some LED Christmas lights. Green seemed like the only viable...

  17. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    2000 9-3 base auto Hello everyone. After about 30-35 min of spirited driving my oil light came on, flickering. I pulled over immediately and shut the car off. I noticed that the PCV breather was torn almost completely off and dangling near where it connects to the banjo hardline on the turbo...
