Ditto the comments on the windshield trim. Most likely top dead center, but I've heard of it lifting in other places as well. At rest, it lies back into place and you'd never notice it without actually trying to pry it out. There was a SAAB bulletin about it quite a few years ago that referred to it as "fluting". SAAB will fix it under warranty. But if you're out of warranty, you can do it yourself for about $3.00. Just get a tube of windshield adhesive at the local parts store. You might want to mask the area off first, as the stuff is a close cousin to super glue. cheers, Geoff (non-certified SAAB mediocre mechanic) Chris Schousboe wrote in message <0Cbi3.5856$>... >I am getting an intermittent whistling noise with my >97 Saab 900 SE Turbo and I was wondering if anybody >might know what it is or what is causing it.
