    Download Workshop Information System free for Saab 9-3 and 9-5

    I found a link to a copy of the WIS for Saab 9-3 2003 to 2007 as well as 9-5 models. This is a great tool if you are clueless about Saabs as it shows you step by step how to replace parts on your Saab. I had a squeaking noise coming from the ACC climate control fan under the glovebox and this programme was great for showing me how to remove it so I could put a bit of WD40 on it. Good as gold!

    you will need bittorrent a free program to allow you to download from isohunt. http://www.bittorrent.com/

    Great find, quick question before downloading - presume the files will be PC compatible only?

    I was a bit skeptical with this being zip file but it seemed to work fine. didnt find any viruses with nortons. One thing I forgot to mention was when you unzip it it will be in MDF file type. I downloaded a free Program called Alcohol 52% which allows the WIS to run on your computer like its on a CD in your drive (virtual drive). otherwise you can use a converter software and change it to an iso file.

    It will be for PC only, I take it you are a Mac user as you wouldn't have asked if not.

    Use something like parallels - http://www.parallels.com/uk/

    The link is no longer working.
    Does anyone know where one can still get the WIS-Files?

    Kind regards,

    You can use a bit torrent client like Utorrent to download it and maybe use a website like seedpeer.me to find it

    I paid £4 for that off ebay. it doesn't work with 64-bit operating systems which is crap. most versions of windows 7 are 64-bit.
