  1. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have an '01 9-3 SE, with the B205R and a 5 speed manual. Last night I just finished the 6 month long journey I set off on to do some work to the car. Lightweight aluminum flywheel, new clutch kit with slave cylinder, a balance shaft delete, open air intake, steering rack brace, etc. Because...

    Hi Fellers. I recently replaced the faded red plastic seat belt buckle release buttons in my 1998 SAAB 900, but I cannot find similar new replacement buttons for my 2002 9-3. Are there none?
  3. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey! Last week I bought an og9-3, and this far I’m super happy with my purchase. However, as soon as I got my hands on it I noticed something mildly annoying: everytime when the car has stood locked for a while, for example over night, there is a distinct smell of petrol in the cabin. It seems...

    2002 9-3 SE, b205r, auto-trans, 5Dr hatchback, 230k km, PCV update installed. Has good OEM DIC and NGK Plugs. Did full oil flush when I bought the car, including dropping the oil pan and pulling the valve cover. My car all of a sudden started loping after pulling out of a parking lot, it shakes...

    Hey all, just wanted to post a few pics of my ongoing build on my 9-3 vert. Turbo is a garrett gtx2871r I'm planning to run the stock intercooler and cat back exhaust for a while. Almost ready to start it up-waiting pipe for inlet.

    I need new struts for my 2001 Convertible and am thinking of purchasing a set of yellow Koni Adjustable cartridges. The local Saab mechanic (Swedish Garage in Charlotte NC) has never installed a pair on an OG9-3 and had a couple of questions: Are there any mods that have to be done to...
  8. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Bought my 5th SAAB, and my second Viggen the last week of December. 3 months and ~$1,500 in parts later... she's successfully rekindled my soft spot for the Swedish brand, and become a fun, reliable, practical 2nd car for me. Although the car seemed to have been fairly well maintained, I didn't...
  9. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I'm the second owner of a 96 900 convertible. It spent it's early life in OH with salty roads and clearly the top was down during "a few" rain storms. The rot from water being trapped under the padding for the carpet has finally morphed into some large holes (6"x6") in a couple of spots, so...

    I recently acquired a 2001 9-5 Aero with a busted trans from my mechanic that I'm planning on parting out/using as a parts car for my '02 9-3 and my dad's '02 9-5. But what I really want to know is how many of the parts from the 9-5 will fit my 9-3? I'm already planning on swapping the seats...

  13. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I've got a grinding noise coming from inside the driver-side wheel well and can't figure out where it's coming from :evil: I've replaced the axle, the bearing, removed the dust shield completely, checked the brake caliper and pads, and the noise is still there! It happens at all speeds, it had...
  14. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    A couple of weeks ago, the driver's side seat belt on my 2000 9-3 SE convertible fully retracted and wouldn't extend at all. After reviewing posts here, I (1) disconnected the belt so I could at least drape it over me, thus avoiding being pulled over (not the safest alternative, but it's...
  15. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello all! I bought this Saab over the summer to replace a Cougar with possible transmission issues, and seem to have gotten a little more than I bargained for. My radiator blew while idling in traffic, and I replaced it myself (little to no mechanical experience prior). I found, to my...
