    9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Howdy everyone, hope you're all having a great day! So I've been struggling to find any replacement to the crappy plastic shifter bushings which have plagued our cars from the factory. I've seen that Eeuro used to sell an aluminum alternative but they seemed to have ceased selling them for...

  4. First gear pop out on 5 speed

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I'm having issues with occasional pop out from 1st gear. It feels like it's not going completely into gear and sometimes I have to shift between neutral and first to get it to properly engage. Around 7 months ago I had the shift linkages replaced and this pop out issue has been happening for...
  5. '93 900 Shifter not moving

    C900 Workshop
    Hi all, I have a problem with my manual tranny. I was driving pretty normally down the street and when I pulled up to a stop sign and tried to put it into first... nothing... I could not move the shifter at all side to side. It would go into third and fourth(didn't feel like normal though). I'm...

    Hey! My name is Sarah and I have a 2004 Saab 9-3 Aero manual. I adore this car so much. Unfortunately, I signed up for this site so I could get tips on fixing her up (had an accident back in 2014 that just messed up my back end). So you'll be finding me in the repairs topics a lot!!!

  8. Starting issue, Electrical

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    1999 Saab 9-3 SE 5 Speed 2.0T. Been having an issue starting. Everything turns on, but the starter doesn't engage. I've been able to previously stick the shifter between 4th and R, then apply pressure and the car's starter would begin to kick over and start. I think whatever the issue is has...
  9. washer for manual transmission drain plug

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I was planning on changing my transmission fluid on my 02 93 but when I was looking through my Haynes manual it said to replace the washers on the drain plug, check plug, and fill plug. However, I couldn't find this washer anywhere online to buy and the schematic at thesaabsite didn't even have...
  10. "Stubby" 8mm hex key to change manual gear oil drain plug

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I changed out the manual gear box oil in my 01 9-3 vert over the weekend. One of the issues that I read was that there isn't enough clearance in order to get a regular 8mm hex key into the space to open the drain valve. I did some research beforehand and found these short end "stubby" hex keys...

  15. clutch problems 00' 9-5 aero

    9-5 Workshop
    Yesterday I was driving around and my clutch started feeling weird. The car was still shifting fine even though the clutch felt 'empty'. About 10 minutes afterwards I found that I couldn't shift at all. There is little action from the clutch, just seems like it's not engaging all the way. I...

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi there, I'm trying to research what the differences are in the manual transmissions by year, particularly from earlier model years in comparison with an '03. I understand that between '01 and '02 the upper transmission mount changed in location on both transmission versions of the car. I'm...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have a 9-3 2008 manual transmission convertible. About 2 months ago I was driving and something changed where I felt a vibration while accelerating. One could feel it while car was idle and there was a lower sounding hum to the engine. It would get worse at higher rpm so i start shifting...
