  1. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    What's up SaabCentral, After spending a couple days last week replacing a weeping water pump, I got it back together and put the belt back on. The belt is maybe 7 months old, so I opted out of replacing it. But before replacing the water pump, my serpentine belt slipped off. I'm assuming a...
  2. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    My 98 900 SE Conv. developed a noise on a long road trip. It is coming from the RF engine lower pulley. Is there a cheap fix, as I am on a job hunting trip and low on funds? It's not overheating, dropping fluids, or loosing power. Help:o
  3. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello experts, My last service multi-point check showed that I should replace my belt and tensioner. I doubt I NEED to replace the tensioner but whatever. What other things can I replace while the mechanic is already down there? I bought the belt and tensioner off of e euro parts and I think I...

  6. 9-5 Workshop
    Hey all, been a while since my last posting but had too ask. So with serpentine belts, can it be done in a drive way with a jack and stands or this a engine pulling job. Looking at the engine on Saabrina, it looks too tight to fit a hand in to get anything done which is a bit discerning. Do I...
  7. 9-5 Workshop
    I'm not auto mechanic and far from it, but I can purchase a Jack and some mounts and a couple tools because I have recently found out that my engine bay is riddled with problems that I'd like to fix while saving some $$. I got a free inspection from a Saab repair shop and the list goes: -PCV...

    I am new to SAAB, my brother-in-law was a SAAB enthusiast then he died leaving my sister with his SAAB collection. One of which is a 1997 Aero 9000. The serpentine belt needs replacement. However, the tensioner will not un-tension. I stick a 19mm breaker bar on the nut but the assembly...
