I had a car to get through it's mot and wasn't sure how much it should cost. They also helped me out after the garage worked on the brakes.....then I developed clutch problems . The garge was ready to charge me 600 quid for a new clutch the group suggested I get a friend to bleed the clutch system............they saved me 580. I kept my job (not very well paid but keeps a roof over our heads because I was able to keep the car on the road......and that is not an exaggeration!) > > Denise wrote: >> Hello again, >> About 6 months ago I had to have a wheel bearing sorted out on my H reg >> Saab >> 9000.

There is no evidence of any oil loss either dripping or burning, and it hasn't used any oil since it was topped up by a freind of mine. > >> To make matters worse I now have a battery light coming on, I'm not sure >> if >> the battery isn't holding charge or something isn't charging the battery. > > Probably just alternator brushes or the alternator itself.

Originally the Saab was my choice of car, now as I'm on my own it's hard to look after but I can't afford to part with. I really do have to keep her going at least for another 6 months if at all possible. Thanks for taking the time and trouble to reply.
