    Re: alternator

    You need a Bosch 140A saab part 12770124 or 5248372 standard on 9-5 (ans early 9-3's) 2001 onwards the earlier 9-5's had the 130A which still fit fine.
    Usually the brush pack fails and its a cheap DIY....changing out the alternator on the drive is not so easy but plenty of tutorials out there on the web.
