    Remove alarm Saab 9-3 SOLVED Hi, a friend of mine is the owner of a Saab 9-3 1.8i 2006 and has asked me to remove the alarm (no siren, the horn is hooked up to the sound) because the dog keeps setting the alarm off inside the car. I have explained that: one can activate the alarm to "doors...
  2. AUX jack, 2006 Saab 9-3

    Okay so I am trying to take out the AUX jack in the center console in order to examine it, but it appears that I need some kind of special tool to unscrew it?

  6. Pinion bearing install with no press.

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    I've been using temperature differential for pinion bearing removal and installation with great success, so I though I'd share this method with others who, like me, may not have a press handy for this job. The cost is low, approximately $5 worth of dry ice (2-3 pounds of ice) is enough to both...
