I have just had my leaky 9-3 hood rams replaced for my 1999 Saab convertible at a fraction of the price I was quoted at my main dealer. The first time I tried my hood this year it would only go about half way before it stuttered and looking on the forum, it then became obvious that the oil I had been seeing on my drive was from my hood rams.
I booked into my main dealer who said that although I only needed 2 new rams it would be advisable to replace all four as the ‘good’ 2 would probably go very shortly. Well the quote was some £2420.50 for the four including fitting, which was well outside my budget and I questioned whether the car was worth the expenditure.
Therefore I searched the web and found Simply-Saab in Bristol who fitted four reconditioned rams for £680 + vat. Their reconditioned rams are priced at £125 each exchange, they come with a 12 month warranty and they were fitted while I waited. They were very professional and I would recommend them to any fellow Saab enthusiast.
Anyone who wishes to contact them their website address is simply-saab.com, or their phone number 01179 406121 (service department) or 01179 406151 (parts department).
