  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan (2009) Wiper Not Working

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I got in my car two weeks ago after brushing a few inches of snow off my the windows and hood, and I tried to use the wipers to spray / wipe the rest of the flakes off. My passenger side wiper did just fine, but the drivers side wiper made a “pop” sound and didn’t move. I’m assuming it was...
  2. Wiper length passenger side ideas 1999 93?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi, Just bought a pair of 21" Trico Flex blades and the passenger side blade hangs over the right side of the windshield with about 3 inches of the blade not touching the window as apparently the window is too curved at the edge. Got them at Advanced Auto and the 21" versions were said to be...

  5. Wiper not flush with windshield

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi, SIAP, I couldn't find any thread with the same problem. Recently, something happened and now my passenger wiper blade won't sit flush with the windshield. At the rest position, it hovers 1-2" off the glass. When I turn the wipers on, it still rotates but only touches the windshield for a...
  6. Wiper Linkage - Saab 9-3, 2.0T

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    My passenger side wiper stopped working so I pulled up the cowling below the window and found the arm (where it's supposed to attach to the motor) swinging freely. In the arm were the partial remains of a dome-shaped piece of whitish plastic and, in the tray below, were a few other pieces...
  7. Broken rear wiper arm?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi everyone, I have a 1997 900 SE and a couple days ago the rear wiper quit on me. The wiper base still makes that whirring noise like its trying to move the arm, but the arm doesnt move. Also, the wiper arm is really loose now and will oscillate from way below where it usually reaches to all...
  8. Missing headlight wiper & motor?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I just purchased my first Saab (2002 9-3 SE) last week. I don't have headlight wipers nor any shaft sticking out. Just holes. It looks kind of weird and I'd like to replace them. I don't care if they work, I just want it to look nice. So I'm guess I'm missing the wiper arms AND the motors...

    Been through 2 new pairs of OEM blades, one set of TRICO blades, and one set of Goodyear blades (all of them nearly identical to the OEM blades). Car is an '09 and still chatters loudly during rain. Any ideas? It's driving me nuts to the point where I just turn the wipers off. Should I keep...
