Saab 9-3 bumper and headlight removal
Removing the front bumper and xenon headlight then removing the xenon bulb, bulb igniter and ballast from a Saab 9-3. It is not necessary to remove the bumper or headlight assemblies to replace the bulbs. But, now you know how, if you ever needed or wanted to.
2006 Saab 9-3 SID and Audio System
This Saab has the 1st generation dashboard. It has the Saab Information Display (SID) on top of the dashboard. The radio has a different interface and the HVAC controls are full of buttons. I demonstrate some unique features such as Traffic Program, Automatic Station tuning mode, and how to use the control knob for the trip computer.

~ 700hp Turbo Saab, 312kmh (194mph)
Extreme turbo Saab + 300 kmh
Many viewers have misunderstood this video, so I explain it a little:
-Speed at finish line (1mile/1609m) is measured. Time is not measured.
-First Saab does 1st and 2nd gear with ~half throttle. Second Saab has limited Boost for 1st and 2nd gear.
- three extra seconds between 0-100kmh typically means ~30meters wasted. But three extra seconds used in speeds close to 300kmh, means almost 300meters wasted.
Here is equally powerful RWD cars (if not even more HP's) These RWD's are a lot faster between 0-150kmh, but these Saabs are faster from 150kmh-300kmh. You get the point when you compare speeds at finish line. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urWWdomnncw
-A Saab 9-5 driver pushes a little too much throttle @3rd gear and looses traction. He lifts a throttle and pushes it back, but too much again and then he gears up 4th, a bit earlier than planned. (optimal is@205kmh).
Earlier that summer I broke one gearbox when pushing too hard on 3rd gear.
With new gearbox and at later event, I drove very gently on first three gears to avoid breaking it again. I pushed WOT for the first time on 4th gear @ 190kmh. You can hear it clearly on following video. Engine tone changes totally around 200kmh. Incar video is from 299kmh pull (at 1 mile race) Something happened to camera during the run. So I didn't get any incar video from a 305kmh pull. To see that run from the start line, please see my other videos.
Here is incar video until camera dies. Start is @1min. http://youtu.be/M4NNX4Ygnwc
1999 Saab 9-3 SE Convertible - NO START
After a head gasket replacement, my car will still not start. The timing looks ok (the Exhaust camshaft might be off by one tooth) There seems to be fuel getting to the engine, the battery is good, spark plugs are new. What could be wrong with my car?
theSAABguy Review: Pixelfix.net Replacement SID Ribbon Cable
This is a review and trail of a replacement ribbon cable from pixelfix.net. If you own an older SAAB 9-3 or 9-5 you probably don't have all your pixels on your SID- SAAB Information Display. Amazing results!
Check out my other video... it shows the entire process from start to finish... http://youtu.be/8nmOxskkg_w
2011 Saab 9-5 Aero Turbo6 XWD Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2011 Saab 9-5 Aero. Released as a late 2010 model, the 2011 now boasts a panoramic glass roof along with the great redesign. Overall makes the car have a much more stately appearance and further set it in a more sport/luxury sedan class. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
2004 SAAB 9-3 blower motor constantly on fix DIY
This is a 2004 SAAB 93 Linear. The Blower motor was on "high speed" in this car constantly. The fan was always on. Even when the key was off. The cause was the resistor or "A/C control unit" as they called the part. Hope this helps others who might be experiencing this problem.
