  1. Car Problems? NG900 or old 9-3 Only
    I just picked up a 1997 Saab 900 SE convertible with a window/convertible switch that seems to work randomly. It worked at first and when I noticed the emergency flasher button was disconnected I plugged it in. Well the flashers worked but then the windows did not. I unplugged the flashers and...
  2. Car Problems? New 9-3 Only
    Does anyone know how to get the top down with a buggered Allen wrench hole. I bought the car with top issues, figuring I could fix them.

    Hi Everyone, I just purchased a 1995 Saab 900 SE convertible with 36,000 miles. Its one owner has taken remarkable care of it. I know there must be some things that need replacement including, I am told, serpentine belt, and the water pump. Two mechanics have estimated that these...

    Hello! Internet Saab People!! :) My friends left town and they didn't want to take the car... so... I bought it from them for $900, plus $350 for bumper (I'm guessing). The husband was in a very mild accident, so insurance took the bumper to a shop. They left before they could get it. I...
