  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Howdy, first time on a forum so excuse me if I somehow mess this up. I’m having an issue where the radio, A.C, and all the lights inside/outside work fine when I turn the ignition on, but there’s no crank or start. The battery is good at 12.4v (also load tested it). The starter is new (just...

  3. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    So, I noticed today that the top left connection of my ABS pump has started to leak. I cleaned the top of the pump, went for a drive, and when I got back this was what I saw. Is there an easy way of fixing this instead of getting a brand new ABS pump? Is there an O ring / Seal underneath the...

    Hi! Recently I have noticed that in lower gears (2 and 3) the car sometimes pulls strongly to the right while driving. Anyone else experience something similar? I have had the wheels balanced and tested - all fine. The car has been to the garage/mechanics twice and they can't identify the...

    So I tried adjusting the right side handbrake "cog" inside the rear brake rotor because the right side is bad when pulling the handbrake. I pushed the cog upwards, and now my handbrake is much worse than before, and I can pull it all the way up without any resistance. It does lock, but only at...

    So I recently replaced my thermostat, because my engine temp was always at the lowest when driving on a motorway, and in city traffic it would fluctuate a lot. Replacing the thermostat fixed the issue, well I thought it did. It warmed up really well, and stayed in the middle of the temp gauge...

    Just replace the clutch, pressure plat, slave, and clutch master cylinder a couple of months ago. Now I still have pedal, and it feels like the shifter is shifting into gear. However, the car wont engage and i can let off the clutch in any gear without stalling. It's like its stuck in neutral.

    Dad bought a car that didnt run and had no clutch. Cars running now replaced the clutch and clutch master cylinder along with the slave and throwout bearing.
