    Just looking to get some thoughts on a couple of things now that I've rekindled my love affair with my 2001 9-5 wagon.

    Last week I finally did a stage 1 from BSR to unleash the "enormous power"...

    Well those two beers were WELL EARNED! Got the new switch fitted but what a pig of a job. Cramped, awkward...haven't done a repair this challenging for a long time. Certainly got to know the...

    Thanks Geoff. That sounds about right.
    Reading up on generic fitting on other makes and models they seem to suggest hand tight then nipped up snug. 30Nm should do it.
    Thanks for your insight as...

    TIP -
    Take a jewelers screwdriver and new battery and do the change inside the car. I replaced my remote battery and couldn't get the new one synced for the life of me.

    A 24mm O2 sensor socket is perfect for this kind of thing and a must have in any toolkit.

    Geoff, any idea of the torque setting on these? Can't find a thing in WIS. My guess is real tight + 1/3?

    Thanks for confirming that. In all the eBay listings I saw they looked the same so I figured they were.
    Already have those beers on ice!
    Cheers.
  12. Oil Pressure Switch - hopefully an easy one.

    Hi all.
    I'm looking to replace the pesky oil pressure switch on my 2.0t 9-5.
    Can't find a part number in the EPC or WIS but my local parts store says it's the same part for both 2.0 and 2.3 and the...

    Ah yeah, that's a few changes right there! I'm lucky, my 9-5 is all stock.

    I hear you with the transmitter. They've come a long way in the last few years, an old one I had wasn't great either but...

    Hey Geoff, cheers for the reply.
    I was thinking that too and I did check the wiring the other day. Inside the engine bay the wiring does some pretty tight bends right at the plug and when i give...

    My 2001 9-5 wagon recently had the dreaded ABS xmas tree dash light display and lost speedo function.

    Hi from Downunder.
    These can be tricky to fit or refit. I've removed the one on my '01 wagon a few times to clean it and fortunately haven't had any trouble. It is however the original part.

    Haha..all good mate.
    Yeah screens are usually covered down here too IF you have fully comp cover, which I don't. Cost me about 300 quid. If I had cover the price would've been closer to 450 pounds...

    I'll definitely get under and check the bushes. One of the first repairs I did was to replace the front sway bar links as they clunked like crazy and I did give the bushes etc a quick...

    If you search youtube there is a video of a guy that soldered in a long wire as an extended antenna. Opening the fob and cleaning the contacts helps but not that much.
