  1. Central locking ECU repair (bad capacitors)

    This is for the newer 900 cars, I believe post-1990. It also applies to some 9000 cars. The part number of my ECU was 9529975. I'm not sure about the earlier cars, but failures are rarer in these...

    You can start by checking the ground wires from the engine to the body. Sometimes these can corrode and cause problems. Power from the ignition switch in the 92 convertible should go via a relay...

    Sliding yoke calipers aren't just on Saabs. They are an older design that was common on a lot of cars in the '60s and '70s as disc brakes moved past their infancy and into the mainstream. I think it...

    I was looking around the internet for any (ANY) information on how to repair the self-repairing bumpers on the flat-nose 900 cars. I found nothing! I did figure it out, but I thought I'd post...

    But he says that the noise remains even with no belts! So it could not be any peripheral belt-driven components. I doubt it has anything to do with the pulley.

    That is my inclination too, re the impedance, now that someone mentions it.

    Saab turbos used 2.5 bar regulator, whereas the non-turbo used the 3 bar.

    As for the metal vs plastic air mass meter,...
