  1. Auto Detailing & Body Repairs
    Hi there, So I recently purchased a Saab 9-5 Aero. While it is mechanically healthy, the body has some issues I have been wanting to address. The big one for me, though, is the weatherstripping. A decent amount of the weatherstripping on the car is cracked or showing heavy signs of aging. Even...

    Hey all, quick question regarding steering wheels. Will a 2006 steering wheel work in a 2002 car? (Both are 9-5 steering wheels) I love the look of the 3 spoke steering wheels and I want one in my 2002 aero but I don't want to mess anything up. Thanks.

    Hey everyone, I've got (2) brand new OEM front brake discs. They're the 288mm ones that fit on 9-5s from 1999-2009. I ordered them by accident for my Aero wagon. They don't fit that but should fit all non-Aero models. I think I paid around $70ea for them. I'm looking to offload them to...

    Hey all, So today I finished the build on my 9-5 Arc. As i’m about to take it home, i noticed that the clutch pedal was very light. What made that weird was that I got a Spec Stage 2+ clutch so i knew it should’ve been heavier. After noticing that, i turned it on, put it in reverse and it went...

    Hi! I was changing the Spark Plugs today on my 2008 Saab 9-5. Upon removal of the electrical connector, the red clip that slides out broke (oof!). The connection seems to be pretty sturdy without the clip; however, for peace of mind, I'd love to find a replacement. I've been searching for the...

    Hey guys, I'm new to the Saab world and just bought a 2001 9-5 3.0t wagon yesterday. It's got a few warning lights, mostly brought on by what seems to be a bad ABS module, I'm ordering that some time this week. But two codes that came up on the reader (1251, 1261) seem to be about the throttle...

    I've been looking at upgrading my 9-5 brake discs and calipers, however I want to know if we can interchange and retrofit brake kits from other car manufacturers?
