    There are screws in the door handle and the pull handle. I think you have to lever up the window trim and prise out the boot and filler release buttons. Then the trim comes off like all the others over the years. But you need to be careful with the waterproof membrane. There's so much electrical stuff in the door, including the impact sensor, that you have to keep things dry.

    Oh yes - Welcome to Saabscene!!

    Thanks for the tips I am also wondering how the window attaches to the track and why it just came off!?!? Thanks for your help. I was unaware of the impact sensors. What happens if the sensors are triggered?

    The side airbag goes off!!

    Turn off ignition and leave it all alone for about half an hour for any electronics to discharge.

    Re: Electric window track repair

    After having my 9-5 just one month I lowered the window and there was an almighty bang. I tried to lift the window it then dropped into the door. The bang was one of the plastic pulleys supporting the window breaking. It was repaired under warranty but a month later I had to remove the door skin as there was a rattle in the door.This turned out to be one of the mechanism scurimg bolts which had not been tightend.Removal of the door skin is relatively easy, look for the caps over the securing bolts in the pull handle and beind the door release handle. There is a press home grommet where the wing mirror adjuster is housed you need to pull this out together with the ones aroud the edge of the skin before lifting the door skin. Best of luck.
