If you can get them towards Newark I'll bring them back to Stowmarket

 

 

I’m in Barnsley if it helps... could look to collect and wrap up for a courier or may be able to get Newark way (fairly regularly going to Lincoln at the moment)

 

re. four scruffy steel 15" wheels without tyres.  

 

Hi Guys., my offer was rejected ..but a counter-offer came through and I've accepted n' paid that.

I've dropped the seller a note asking for contact details to pass on to  si1881.. As soon as I have it I'll PM  you.. 

There's no urgency on my part, so whenever at both your convenience. ;)

 

Most grateful,

Bfg.

Is there a difference between Saab 9-3 and 9-5 wheels? My 9-5 has 215/55R16 tyres and the 9-3 has 205/50R16. The 9-3 needs a new set so I was wondering if I could get a set of 215s and hopefully improve the ride comfort as the 9-5 is much smoother over the bumps.
I would normally take the wheels off and swap them over to see what happens but have medical problems so me jacking up two cars and undoing eight sets of wheel nuts is not allowed.
Whilst studying the tyres I noticed the 9-5 has three el-cheapo M+S and one Michelin summer tyre. Am I right in thinking that the Michelin is on a par with the others?

The alloy wheels fitted to my 9-3 I have seen also fitted to a 9-5. Fitting 215/55s to the 9-3 may make the speedo read out.

 

It may just be the set fitted to your 9-3 have very firm or stiff sidewalls, or aren't much cop. I have Avons fitted to the front of my 9-3, and they feel pretty good

Does anyone know the part number for the reverse light switch on a 1989 Metro VDP? I have bought two over the last year and neither fit. Pic of the original one and one that doesn't fit.

Has anyone else noticed the amount of cars driving round with rear number plates that have almost gone white? I'm assuming sun damage? It's typically on newer cars...

Thinking of getting some Delinte tyres fitted to the K11, price is very nice given the recent insurance+tax bills. Anyone had experience with the brand beyond what the one thread I've found so far? 


1994 K11 1.0 CVT Micra - Spent way more then needed but loving it :)

2 Saab related questions. Z19DTH engine

 

1. Studying videos and internets on removing the fuel pump some sources say the fuel pump is timed as well, others say it's not. Which one is it?

2. New manifold comes with flap actuator motor and the sensor on the top - is this plug & play or do I need to retain my original for full compatibility?

3. what size are the engine mount bolt heads - E14 or E16?

Hi I'm a Bfg., and . . . . . . . . . .  I am a car 'project' addict. 

There I said it !

..  but I just can't help myself.    :?

 

Anyway., even before clearing what I already have unfinished in the garage - I'm craving my next fix.  This will be the last time  ..honest !  

 

But that's another story.  

 

Anyone familiar with American cars here ? Because for now I want to ask about U.S. automobile inspection or tax bumper stickers. . 

 

A_7604.jpg

On a 1960's autom0bile presently in Arizona car, this sticker clearly says  A.7604.  But would I be correct in thinking this means it was last registered, inspected or taxed for the road in Arizona 1976 April.  ..Some 43 years ago this very month ?  Or are the numbers arbitrary and just as the vehicles were checked through the system ? 

 

Thanks

Bfg  ;)
