Go to the Townsend SAAB site (repair shop in Greensboro, NC) for excellent instructions for replacing a head gasket, complete with torgue info, etc.

I recentely bought Saab 9-3 2005, everything is in order but one of the key was not working (the electronic) part had one piece broken. unfortunately the second key stopped working today and i can not open the car any more(I checked the battery power and is ok).
Any advice on how I could solve this?

The key should come apart. Pull the top off and you will have a metal key; this will open the door. Replace the plastic part and use that to start.

#3348 of 3350 Tire Pressure Sensor
Jun 26, 2013 (9:10 pm)
Just turned 75k miles on my 2008 9-3.....tire pressure sensor indicating "failed" status with message for service. Wondering if anybody out there has had this fix and at what cost? Also, driver side power window is not closing.....it rolls down automatically when it hits the top sill. I can close it by simultaneously depressing the window-lock button but that is clumsy and annoying. Otherwise car has been great over last 6 years and still getting thirtysomething mpg and outrageous highway speed.

I usually opt out on the extended warranty because; 1) I can perform most repairs on my own 2) Saab is quite dependable as far as my research goes 3) you may decide to sell before having to use the warranty
