  1. 9-5 Workshop
    Heyo peeps. I have a 2006 9-5, b235e engine. My steering always got heavy when the car warmed up in the mornings. I read about this issue a lot on the forums. After some people pointed this out, I noticed that also my ps pump makes whining noise, which I thought was just some other engine sound...

    for the last 3-4 weeks my 2004, 93 arc hasnt had any power steering, we put fluid in, didnt fix it, we put in a new pump, and it still didnt work, we checked the seal to the engine and it was fine, looked under the car and its covered in oil, looking from the hood into the main engine...
  4. 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?

    Just finished this P.I.T.A. job. I really have a love hate relationship with this 2.8 XWD... So happy its finished though. Also sanded down and re-cleared the head and fog lights along with some new phillips bulbs. Installed a new BSR performance intake from GenuineSaab.com to finish it off.
  7. C900 Workshop
    Hi, I recently bought a 1993 900 Classic with a non-turbo 2.1l. The previous owner noticed a leak in the power steering system, removed the belt but didn't get around to fixing the issue. Sadly he didn't put the belt in the parts box, so I'm left to finding a new one to resurface the issue and...
  8. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So a few weeks ago my 2006 9-3 decided to dump almost all of it's power steering fluid all of a sudden, spraying it all out through where the banjo bolt connects. Ordered a seal replacement kit from eSaabParts, replaced all of the o rings and seals about a week ago. Refilled it with pentosin...

    Any recommendations on OEM vs Remanufactured? Looks like Rockauto has A-1 Cardone, ACDelco, and BBB.
  10. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've already replaced the shaft seal on the pump, but now it looks like its puking more fluid than ever. A closer look shows that there's fresh fluid coming out of the port that goes into the pump. Bit of a shame that reservoirs and pumps aren't sold separately. It should just be the intake...

    My power steering fluid is disappearing on my 03 9-3 SS, doesn't seem to be a leak anywhere. I have been having to put fluid in every few weeks. Today after a trip and some vigorous steering the level was low again. Went to check the oil as well and found the level to be higher than when I...
  12. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi - Would like some feedback on repair underway now. I am waiting on delivery of a power steering (PS) pump for my daughter's 2006 wagon. 141K miles. I opened things up to change out the water pump because of leaking O-ring at the block (different thread there). As I got things apart I...
  13. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    The shaft seal on my power steering pump started leaking recently and my PS was overflowing as has been well documented on this forum. So I went ahead and got a re-manufactured pump and replaced the whole unit. Job went together easily without any complications, but when I started the car it...
  14. Engine Oil, Lubricants & Fluids
    Hi Guys, Not sure if this is the correct thread (I couldn't find a thread related to newer 9-3's). So please excuse me if it is misposted and direct me to the correct thread. I have a leak in my high-pressure power steering hose line. The mechanic says that the only fix is a complete...

    Hi, My old Passat died a few weeks ago. I went out and found a dirt cheap 9-5 -05 for about $2.000. I knew the guy selling it obviously wasn't telling me all the faults of it and now I think I found the biggest issue yet. We've had some very cold days here were I live (-20F, -28C) and one...

    Hi I have a 2006 9-3 TID vector sport which at times the power steering does not kick in especially during cold start. At times I have to drive a few kilometers then turn of the engine and restart for it to kick in. The steering becomes so heavy that driving becomes unbearable. Has anyone...

    Hey guys, In the last few days my 2004 Saab 9-3 has been making a groaning noise when turning right. I looked today and found that the power steering fluid is leaking from the bolt that is on top of the pump. I tried searching around on here but haven't had any luck. Does anyone have any advice...

    Does anybody know what bolt to use with the power steering pulley? My power steering pump seized up and sheered the bolt for the pulley. I found this one, but I am unsure about using it as it says it is for the tensioner pulley. http://www.eeuroparts.com/Parts/33771/Belt-Tensioner-Bolt-8098378/

    I have a 2000 9-5 Saab which just went up in smoke and I have no idea what is wrong with it. I don't have the money to get it into the shop just yet but I'd like to get an idea of what's going on with it in the meantime if I can. If anyone here can offer any insight it would be greatly...
