Question about 2003 Saab 9-3
Seat moves forward and backward, but it will not recline. Of course it is stuck in the worst possible position.

The belt ratcheting mechanism is knackered. I have tried twice to fix this problem and simply could not do it. My ultimate solution was to buy a used belt from Goldwing Saab in NY and install that. It is about a 35 to 40 minute job in the verts.

Mine did that a few months ago. I ended up getting mad and pulling the plastic off of the emergency brake. It is just two halfs snapped together. After doing this, I could see that the cheap plastic trigger you squeeze to release the brake had a crack in it and was no longer able to pull the cable to release the brake. Until I get it fixed, I am able to just use one hand to pull up on the emergency brake slightly to ease the tension on the cable, then use the other hand the grasp the metal cable and pull it, which will allow the brake to be released back to it's lowered/released position. That was what was wrong in my case anyways... one of my MANY problems I've had with this car. I'd NEVER own another Saab.

This has been happenning on my 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0 T also for about 2-3 months also. I have had no clues until today I learnt by accident that the lumbar support on my car's driver seat does not work anymore. Which means that there are broken strings/wires inside the seat and that move on braking and make clicking sound. I haven't checked my seat's lumbar support but will do soon.
Try your lumbar support adjustment and see if it is moving freely, that means it not adjusting the lumbar support. If that's the case, that may be the cause of the clicking/slight-movement of the seat.
