  1. Timing chain tensioner seal & o-ring replacement

    9-5 Workshop
    Good Morning 2005 9-5 Arc w/ 257k miles. I need to replace the timing chain tensioner seal & o-ring to fix an oil leak at that location. Is it a simple remove the tensioner, replace the seal & o-ring, reset the tensioner to zero and put it back in piece-wise? Everytime someone here talks...

    Hi folks, Greetings from Australia. I own a 2008 Saab 9-3 covertable 2.0 turbo. It has 180,000km on the clock. It has been leaking a sh*t load of oil into the radiator reservoir. HOWEVER, there is no water leaking into oil or engine area! I changed the oil last week and I am almost down to...
  3. Intake Seal Missing?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I just bought a '96 900S convertible. Love it. I'm having a problem with the idle speed, which oscillates while I've got the clutch in. I suspect that the air intake is leaky, mostly because it seems to be missing a seal. Note that the two small screw holes in the second picture which have...

  7. Window seal / run channel

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Does any one have experience changing out the run channel on a door window? My driver side door window has been having issues for some time now. The run channel is cracked right by the mirror, so it is bunching up when i roll the window up. This in turn activates the anti-pinch, not allowing...
  8. Auto/manual transmission axle seals interchangeable?

    9-5 Workshop
    Recently I replaced the Driver side Axle on the 9-5 V6 and thought it would be a good idea to change the axle seal that goes into the transmission. So I ended up ordering this Timken Part # 4764 Transmission-Automatic Seal. Thinking it was the right one I noticed that the existing seal looked...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Ordered the parts after pulling the wheel and belt cover and seeing that it must be the OilPump Seal. Question is once I get the HarmBal bolt off will it and the pulley just slide off or does it need persuasion? Have a HBalancer puller, but (and I shoulda took a picture while i was under there)...

    Hi fellas, I've been creeping around these boards since I picked up my Saab about a year ago. I have got some really good advice on things such as the blower motor and other bits a pieces that have saved me an absolute ton of money. However I now have a question it seems may not have been...
  11. Speaker Outage

    9-5 Workshop
    Looking for tips for troubleshooting a new issue that occurred today. While driving to lunch today I heard loud audible noises coming from my right front speaker. The noise surged in and out like feedback. Once it went away on its own and a second time after power cycling the radio. It has...
  12. Crankshaft Oil Seal - Special Tool?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Whilst changing Strut Thrust Bearings, Brake Discs and Pads I found an Oil Leak, wooohooo. Looks like it is coming from the Timing Chain Cover, somewhere near the top. The oil is working its way onto the Serpentine Belt pulley and flinging itself around a bit plus helping to degrade the...
