  1. '91 900 Convertible - couple of questions

    C900 Workshop
    I've got this 900 that's been largely great for me. I bought it with about 170k on it, and it continues to start every day, so I keep driving it. :) The convertible top is shot, and water is getting into the body. The rubber drain nipples in the quarter panels were plugged up, so I cleaned...

  4. Water/Methanol Injection - anyone?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi Guys, A while back I got a Snow Performance Water Meth system from Vtuner Brian, on his recommendation. Since I don't have the expertise myself, nor tools, I am still trying to find a garage that could help me do the install. I am also trying to find a place to put the digital control box...
  5. 303 High Tech Fabric guard bad for top?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi everyone, after reading many threads on this, I am still nervous... should I be? In reading the bottle and many threads it seems that it should be fine for the top. However, in red letters on the bottle it says not to let it get on rubber as damage will occur. I understand these tops to...
  6. Water/Methanol injection in 2.8T ???

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello, I have written earlier about the failed exhaust valve on the TXSS, after a short log run and 3 WOTs for a Vtune. Brian states he has never seen so hot Inlet Air Temps (IATs) and that might have caused detonation. The climate here is very hot in summer, though I would have thought Saab/GM...
  7. Leaking Trunk/Hatch fix (pics)

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    An issue with Saab 9-3's is a leaking trunk/hatch. A common remedy of this is to clear out the residue and any debris in the sunroof drain plug located in the outer corners of the trunk. Or the hose itself may be disconnected. To get to the plugs you must take off the carpet. There are 4 screws...
  8. Wanted: Water cooled T3 Turbo

    Parts for Sale/Wanted - UK & Europe
    Hi there, My turbocharger seems to be having fun mixing my water and oil together. I think is happening because of a breakdown of the seals! I was wondering if anybody had a spare turbo lying around that I could possibly purchase? It's for a 1988 T8. Thanks!

  10. Winter mayo or something else???

    9-5 Workshop
    I bought my 9-5 Aero back in June and promptly had a bad TD04 replaced. Everything was cool as a cucumber until the temps dropped to around 3ºC and lower. About three or four cold starts per week I get blue oily smoke for about 5 to 10 seconds... There is also a small amount of mayo on the...
  11. 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)...
  12. Pool of water in back passenger side

    9-5 Workshop
    Any ideas why my wagon is turning into a wading pool for whoever's lucky enough to sit on the rear passenger side? You can actually hear water gurgling, like they have a fountain as well.
