  1. Sticky Manual Shifter

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've stored my car for 5 month of winter and now my shifter doesn't spring back to neutral. Shifting up and down all goes smoothly( 1st to 2nd, 3rd to 4th, 5th to 6th) however moving from side to side is very stiff and it won't bounce back to the neutral position, it stays wherever you put it be...
  2. Transmission concern

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I noticed sometimes the tranny sticks from 4th to 5th gear. Would that be a transmission mount issue?

    9-5 Workshop
    Okay, this is my first time posting but I should have joined along time ago. Here's a little background story: About a month ago I fixed the blower motor so I could get heat (just needed a cleaning and new brushes) and about two weeks ago I also got a new battery.

  4. Let go of my key!!!!!

    9-5 Workshop
    My 2002 9-5 Manual Wagon is getting real stingy in releasing my key.

I have 100k miles on it, so it could be an...

However today the problem became much worse, almost every time i try to put it in reverse it wont go unless i slam it...

    It is with deep sadness that I decided to part ways with this baby: I love it beyond words, but it was a rushed decision and as it turns out, I just moved to a big city where I get to drive it less...
  7. shifter stick broke off

    C900 Workshop
    My 1992 Saab 900 shifter stick/rod broke off from the ball that it seems to have been welded to. The wire/thin rod that attaches to the reverse ring also broke. My plan is to re-weld it, or pick one up from a junk yard. In order to re-weld I would need to replace the wire, but I cannot figure...
