My beloved Saab 9-3 OG 2000 2.0t has come to an end.
After getting though his MOT and having the advisories taken care of (front suspension ball joints) there was found a monster lurking.
Having new shiny lower suspension arms on the front it turns out that the loads on the suspension forced an issue hitherto unnoticed; a crack in the body where the steering rack attaches.
This is either engine out and tricky welding or breaking for parts, and I offer Sven the Saab (my 4y/o daughter named him) for sale thus.
With a tear in my eye I have to say bye-bye.
Please get in touch if you are interested. Cheers
