    Saab Repair Shop Los Angeles Area?

    My daughter has the Saab at college, and she's been told that the alternator is kaput. I'm in Phoenix, so I'm just looking to do a little checking to see if anyone knows of any good shops in the LA...

    Okay - cool. Thanks for the quick response. You told me just what I wanted to know - it's a straight replacement - no mods are needed.

    Is there a good source for these LEDs and is it a complicated mod? I'm reading through different posts, and don't know whether we're talking about stock bulbs or LED mods here. I like bright...

    DONE AND DONE.

    Final Tally - New Fuel Pump, new fuel pressure regulator, new send and return lines, new brake 30A relay, new kick-down cable, but now radio doesn't work (when sitting for a while...

    Back to the issue at hand - got to "test drive" the car today, and the brakes feel right, but the ABS light stays on - he has a 2X15 amp relay where a 30 amp should be. I hope that's the issue. ...

    I'd gladly pay more for parts from a company with a good return and warranty record. eEuroparts is a few bucks more, but I haven't had the problems with them that I had with Thesaabsite. ...

    Not that there should be much confusion between the cars, but this sounds an awful lot like The Saint, which had Roger Moore tooling around in a Volvo P1800.

    Had this problem and this DID fix the leak. BEAR IN MIND that there may be one or more small cracks where the hose attaches to the reservoir (mine had a few) so we had to trim about 1/4-1/2" off the...

    I talked with the mechanic yesterday - they found a relay in the ABS system that had gone bad, and had locked in the "on" position (at least that's how I understood it). They are in the process of...

    If it's an accumulator, will the "Brake fluid" light be on as well? There's plenty of fluid in the reservoir, but the light won't go off. There are no apparent leaks. Of course, could it be...

    While it could be the pump, the black-box APC module does put the kibosh on going into the "red zone" from what I understand. The red APC box allowed a little entrance into the "red" zone. You...

    And now, the brakes....

    The warm starting issue is supposedly solved (haven't had the car to test that theory), but went to the shop to pick it up, and the brakes were nigh-on non-functional. The brake pedal is hard (same...

    Both the ABS light and the Brake Fluid lights are on, so I figure there's a real problem here. There's plenty of fluid in the reservoir. I don't think the garage did anything, but it just seems...

    So, here's the latest:

    Went to pick up the car from the shop - (had to wait for wife to get paid) - $638.00 later - we get to the shop, and the BRAKES seem to have stopped working. The pedal is...

    Update - Big B was having a devil of a time trying to get this thing figured out. We took it to Swedish Auto Werkes on Cave Creek Rd in Phoenix. Turns out the new fuel pump was bad. It would run,...

    Sam - When you say "if the regulator was bad, you would know it," what should I look for? Currently, I have no throttle response, you cant keep the car on idle (it dies), and if you give it a lot...

    Car is over at my buddy's shop, so I'll have to get over there and take some photographs. I want to get this cleared up so I can drive her again. Dang. Thanks for the tips.

    Another question - has anyone with a 16V Turbo ever messed with a higher PSI fuel pump regulator (3.0 vs 2.5)? My thought is this - I'm eventually going to "increase the output" of said engine, and...

    Oh, the exhaust needs to be re-hung and plumbed. Right now, there is a simple down-pipe from the turbo - not sure of this has an effect on performance, but it sounds sick. The exhaust is held in...
