Unfortunately, unless you are mechanically minded and have a technicians workshop guide, i suggest not attempting it.

Unfortunately, it is run off the timing belt which would require it's removal.....not an easy task once you get into it, basically most of the front of the engine has to be disassembled, then the timing belt removed, then the water pump....(i would suggest replacing timeing belt as well, save on future costs), then putting it all back together.

If you do make a mistake on the timing belt and it is out of timing, you might be up for a new engine, so I would not suggest it !!!!

Hi - I have a much loved 2004 SAAB 93 Aero sedan.


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.

My water pump is leaking slowly and i just need to replace it. any diy/ how to replace it?


Not going to be diy unless your almost a real mechanic. All the engines that can come in this car are difficult to work on, many tools are needed, and the job must be done perfectly or engine damage can result.

My 200 saab 93 tid stalled and now it will not start. No codes showing and the rac say it could be the fuel pump. but the garage they towed it to are asking me for £950 to replace it. anything i can...


Would like to know what you did here. DIY fuel pump replacement can be from about $50 to $150. Need make / have tool to remove fuel pump. Have to take assembly apart though, not for amateur. Otherwise have to replace entire assembly. Dealers really soak for this.

How do I replace my 2004 Saab 9 3 linear's water pump.


Re : the computer , they better cover it under warranty or they ****.
Re : the water pump , you have a leak and they say it is the water pump , I have no reason to doubt that they have honestly checked out the problem and determined that a new water pump is the only solution but , damn $ 1000 is pretty steep. I would look around for another mechanic for a second opinion and a quote. Avoid dealerships. Not sure what engine you have but i just looked in my saab with a 2.3 and hope I never have to do mine. I am pretty good with a wrench but I know there would be lots of swearing involved.

When i start the engine make noise for few seconds


It sounds like you need to check and replace your engine oil and oil filter. This will happen when it is cold and dirty and it takes time to get to the oil ports in the engine. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer. Thanks.

Rear brake cylinders are stuck, can not push them in


I have a 2004 SAAB 93 and just finished replacing the brake pads and rotors yesterday. On the piston itself you should have two little notches. You can either or a GM rotor reset tool that will push into the two little notches and push against the piston while rotating it clock wise. Or the way that I did it was to take a C clamp and put the caliper back on the car. Clamp it on the back of the caliper to the front of the caliper so it will remain stationary. Then take a pair of needle nose pliers and rotate the two notches clockwise while pushing into the caliper. It will take some strength but you should be able to push them in. Be sure that you spray the boot around the piston when some WD 40 so it does not crack and or break during the process. If you have any additional questions about this feel free to email me.
