  1. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    A trick I discovered today which might be of interest to the community. I am not an automotive mechanics and work on my car when I really have to. recently, I had to change the end-plate on my car (2002 Saab 9-3 SE Turbo Convertible) and to do so I removed the engine from the engine-bay. On...
  2. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello, I am about to replace timing chaing and pulleys on my SAAB 900 2.5 V6 1995. I found a number of timing tool on ebay, but most of them are for 3.0 L and 3.2 L engines. Does anybody know, if these tools will work on my 2.5L engine? Here is a link to one of them...
  3. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So I got the right rebuilt alternator but with the wrong pulley, the FWD pulley being taller than the XWD version. Trying to find the right tool, but can't find the right size. The deeper, taller is a 10mm triple square, but the short, splined cylinder (black) seems hard to find and I don't...
  4. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Does anyone have for sale or rent or know where to source the tool that locks the camshaft and the camshaft gears in place? I am having some slight timing issues after a timing chain replacement. It has a slightly surging idle and I can only find the tool that locks the cams in place. The...

  6. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Just bought a '99 9-3, looking forward to getting under the hood. The compression on the middle two cylinders is low and it's idling rough (probably from overheating) so I plan on replacing a head gasket after some more investigation. Hopefully the block isn't warped or else i'm up a creek...

  8. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    As I have read with the older saabs, the clutch alignment tool is a pain in the *** to acquire. Now, what about for our sport saloons? I have an 06b 2.0 5sp I am doing the clutch on this weekend but I CANNOT find the tool. I would rather not listen to some ideas I have read i.e. a 1/2 in metal...

  10. C900 Workshop
    For those of you who've done timing chain replacements, and used a masterlink-type chain, what did you use to crimp in the masterlink (and perhaps get the old chain seperated, if it had a masterlink too)? I know there's a Saab tool out there for that job, but they're hard to find. I can...
  11. 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...
