    Can anyone tell me where to get instructions for working on the rear lift gate in my 2008 9-7x? The rear door latch seems to be either broken or coming unhinged, and I'd like to replace it without...

    Saab 9-7x built-in tire pump

    Hi all,

    Can anyone tell me about the built-in air compressor in the back of my 2008 9-7x? I like the idea of being able to fill my own tires, but honestly it's very weak, hard to connect and the...

    Bad luck--I got a coolant leak after I'd learned to ignore the low coolant warnings, and ended up with an expensive overheat and blown head gasket. These bargain cars can be expensive.

    Hi all,

    The top on my 1996 convertible stopped retracting and my mechanic says it's the motor (the one that opens the cover that the roof goes under when retracted). The motor runs and the...

    Thanks for the replies. I agree--if I know it's actually OK, I'd rather live with it than put in a different old switch. In fact, it just stopped giving the false warning on its own.

    Hi everyone,

    Well, I still haven't fixed it...too busy with work. How hard was the hydraulic kit to install? Did it come with good directions? Did you have to take apart the master brake cylinder to reach the...

    Thanks - I took the car to a Saab shop to have it evaluated. The mechanic test drove it and said the brake action was just fine; maybe I was talking myself into seeing problems that didn't exist. ...

    Followup: I put it back together with the new pads but nothing else changed and yeah, braking is pretty weak. It's surprising how easy it is not to notice poor brake action in a car with power...

    Rear brakes...what a mess

    I recently posted on the "new member" forum that I'm new to Saabs but bought a '96 900 on eBay. I had a mechanic look it over and one thing they told me was that the rear brakes would need work...

    Just bought a 900 convertible

    I'm here because I made a low, low bid for a car on eBay and I won the auction! It's a 1996 Saab 900 convertible with a turbo engine. It's in quite nice condition for its age. But the car was on...
