    If it is the crankshaft oil seal it is comprehensively blown. I was actually thinking that was what it was from the photographs.

    The oil pressure switch is on the back of the engine above the exhaust, nowhere near the polyvee belt. The timing cover is a distinct possibility.

    I don't like to say this but I think you are going to need a local expert, it is really nearly impossible to do a diagnosis at a distance.

    If you can get a bulb that works, replace both of them, with luck that will prevent the warning. The 1077 seems to be available from at least one eBay seller in your Southern neighbour. I also found...

    I am sorry nobody replied to your original post but then Classic 900s are not terribly common any more. It is over 30 years since I last owned one and it was far too young to have suffered any of the...

    This is the circuit diagram for a 2007 9-5 with Xenons. It came from WIS where the other diagrams can also be found,

    Yes there should be a drain on each side, the driver's side on your car would be the passenger side on a RHD model so have a look at a UK forum for how to clear it.

    Do you have comfort opening, hold the unlock button to the key fob for four seconds and all four windows open? If that works it may be just the switch as it clearly works when you hold the switch to...

    Frank, that thread refers to the original 9-5 but this thread refers to the NG 9-5 and things are slightly different. Also, dgreaves is in the UK with a different range of suppliers.

    The information will be on a data plate somewhere on the car but I can't look because mine is an NG 9-5.

    I think that if you contact an approved parts source with the VIN they will be able to provide the correct parts. Saabparts.com might be a good place to start.

    Four years is actually about right for a battery depending on how the car is used.

    Assuming the battery you have is relatively new there are a few things you can try.

    Disconnect the battery,...

    The oil use is quite likely to be a leak from the oil pressure switch, the oil drips on to the exhaust. That could also be the source of the fumes.

    Unfortunately modern cars have a single cable that connects the alternator to the starter solenoid and the battery so the answer to your question is no.

    Glad you have found that one. There is a separate fuse for the cigar lighter, it isn't in the hand book, try fuse 6 in the instrument panel distribution panel. The one in the boot is fuse 26 on the...

    I have two, one by the cup holder and a second one under the arm rest. There is also one in the boot, I recall having to replace a fuse but not which one. I’ll have another look tomorrow.
  20. You thought this was going to be simple didn't...

    You thought this was going to be simple didn't you? The handbook suggests that fuse 25 in the under bonnet fuse box is involved. However, fuse 7 in the instrument panel fuse box is also annotated...

    I have no idea why a dirty filter should cause temperature control problems but in my experience it can happen. It could be related to reduced air flow. The filters are cheap so you might as well...
