Asked by Aug 21, 2011 at 06:04 PM about the 1999 Saab 9-3 4 Dr Turbo Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Any ideas on where the water could be coming from? There is also a "plug" missing on bottom of car. Mechanic says that could be the problem. Any of same problem with this year? Need help I wasn't to have this fixed but feel I am being nickle + dimed by Saab mechanic.

Usually the leak is on the left taillight seal. It's not always obvious, but a new seal should fix yo up toute-de-suite.
