Forum rules


When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.


Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Hi all,

I have an issue with my Saab 9-3 '08MY. After a summer trip in France ( around 2000 miles) realized that the front left fender got misaligned with the passenger door. Also the gap between fender and door is bigger in the upper area close to the mirron and smaller close to the sill. See below pics. Is there an easy fix or a special adjustment for this issue? Has someone else encountered this?

Al seems to be on allright on the right side.

I would check the tightness of the door locating bolts on the door hinges as they can shake loose.
Looks like the door has dropped slightly suggesting the top hinge is loose.
If it isnt the above then you would need to loosen and align both the door hinges and the wing bolt fixings
which is a bigger job to do but not rocket science.

I wondered if it was a guitar.
