  1. Auto Detailing & Body Repairs
    Hi saab fans, In the near future I will perform wheel arch surgery on my 9-5 2001, by cutting out rust and welding in fresh steel. I wonder if anyone knows how to prevent that the wheels arch simply rusts again? I am going to coat the inside of the wheel arch with a rubber coating (after...
  2. 9000 Workshop
    Hi all, Living in the north east, I recently hit a pot hole pretty hard the other day. When I was going over the car later that day I day I noticed that the passenger side shock tower mount had broken through. My guess is the other shock tower mount is not far behind. I'm kicking myself for...
  3. Auto Detailing & Body Repairs
    This is potentially a very stupid question, but anyway. I'm in the process of restoring a c900, and I've got a question about the under-body. Basically, much of the frame is covered in a thick, greasy, gooey substance. I'm assuming it's some sort of rustproofing, but I'd like someone to confirm...
  4. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Has anyone ever cleaned the holes in the frame behind the front wheels and in front of the rear wheels ? On a 2005 conv, it was full of dust, and debris. Are the pitfalls for rust ? How can these be anti rust proofed ?
  5. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Both my front fenders are are rusted between the door and the wheels. I fixed and painted them last year but this winter killed it. It looks even worse. I decided to take a look and see what might be causing it to rust this quickly; removed the wheel liner and bam! , I was greeted with two...
  6. C900 Workshop
    Well, a few months back during the colder months someone at my college's parking lot was a bit reckless about getting out of their spot and left a late Christmas present on the passenger side wheel arch my '87 900 T16 . I was absolutely infuriated... of all the places to get dented on this car...
  7. Auto Detailing & Body Repairs
    I had a few minor rust areas along the fenders that I sanded down to bare metal primed two coats of duplicolor primer filler primer and two coats of a good color matched paint from an auto supply store. After 6 months and a very harsh Wisconsin winter, the rust is popping through again and some...
  8. 9000 Workshop
    I will be moving 1500 km away next month, and elected to drive. I have obtained a 1987, 9000 Turbo. It has ~275,000 km on it and cost me 700 dollars. I admit that this is not the most rational thing that I have ever done. I am looking for some information to increase the odds of me not feeling...
  9. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I bought a TurboX less than a year ago out of Syracuse NY and imported down here to NC. It is the first car I have owned with a aluminum engine block. I am not wild about the oxidation that is going on, it seems excessive. Are any of you seeing similar behavior? Does anyone on here...
  10. C900 Workshop
    Hey, I'm new to the forum. I recently purchased an 87 SPG that has rusted out fenders and rear wheel wells I know the fenders are available but I've been unable to find repair panels for the rear arches? I was hoPing i wouldn't have to pay someone to fabricate them at 100s of dollars an hour...
  11. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Alright, so I have a pretty big problem! I recently replaced my fuel pump on my 97 900 SE. It had to sit for about 3 months because I'm currently stationed on Guam and it takes forever for parts to get here and a company sent me a wrong part twice. After her running again she purred like a...

    I took this picture in an effort to replace all the rusted parts. Can anyone tell me what this one is?
  13. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    My 2002 SE is starting to rust. Not that I'm terribly shocked, but I'm trying to figure out how difficult it would be to replace the parts. On the drivers side, there is rust on the front fender, door (in the middle?), and the rear quarter panel. I've found the front fender and door panels...
  14. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I can't locate my original thread talking about my cam followers being the potential cause of the clicking on the top of my engine, so I'm doing this one. It turns out its a sludge issue. There is excessive crankcase pressure due to internal sludge build-up. The engine needs replacing or...
  15. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I've noticed a lot of rusted parts in/around my car. It has spent many harsh winters in MA. Need I be concerned about replacing these parts? Also, as I was replacing the Evap Purge Valve I noticed the rust on the clamps that has cracked a hose. Should I replace?
  16. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    What is the most smart way to take care of this rust? :: Should I replace the entire fender? :: Should I have bondo work done? Eventually, I want to repaint the car. Could you give me an idea of what kind of spendings are involved if I want to get the car looking sharp again (I have a few...
  17. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Recently i've noticed my car has been quite a bit louder, so my dad took it into an exhaust and muffler shop and said everything back of the flexpipe needs replacing due to holes from rust. I'm not completely sure what brackets (or how many) what valves, clamps, etc. is all necessary. The guy...
  18. C900 Workshop
    The rust on the passenger fender of my '92 900 Turbo is bad. One 2" x 1" secion has rusted all the way through. And the inch along the wheel rim on about 50% of the fender has a significant amount of deep rust as well. Would anyone know the best way to approach repairs? Would it be better for...
