  1. Will my ecu unmarry if I disconnect it?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi, recently my 2003 9-3 went back into limp mode after not doing so for about a year. I started to look for a solution and found out that there's a defect where the seals on the ecu plugs will contract in cold weather (which would make sense as it's been in the snow lately) and the solution is...
  2. Now the expansion valve

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So I recently replaced my low pressure AC line because there was a leak. I had it properly vacuumed/recharged. All was good and my AC seemed set up until a few weeks ago. I began noticing it taking longer to cool on the passenger side which from my experience, that's the sign of a leak. I had...

    9-5 Workshop

  4. Main Seal Replacement: flywheel lock for automatic?

It seems like a pretty straight forward process to take off the crank pulley and install a fresh seal: 27mm socket with breaker bar/neanderpole for leverage, remove pulley, pull out retainer clip, swap bad...

    99-V 9-5 2.3 eco estate 68k full history. Blue smoke on startup for about 3-4 secs, but not every time (70%). I bought this car over a year ago and have covered 15k. One owner from new and he had Saab dealer keep it overnight twice. He was told it was nothing to worry about but it might be some...
  6. Persistent wet carpet above spare tire on 98 NG900S

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have a persistent wet carpet area just above the spare tire. It seems to be just water and not coolant or other. I've replaced the gaskets (just below the spare) and silicone sealed them. I live in northern AZ and don't use the AC/Heat very often (possibly eliminating condensation issues)...
