  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I came out today to discover that someone had broken off the fixed antenna on my 2006 9-3 convertible, and very kindly left it on the car next to the hole it exposed (the cowl came off with the antenna). I have searched for the procedure to replace it, but haven't found much. Does anyone know...

    Morning all, Cassidy, an '02 95 3.0 wgn had the best radio reception of any car I've ever had...until I had the rear lift gate struts replaced. It has the Prestige system and OnStar is irrelevant. I have power to the signal amplifier and all connections are good. I want to switch out the...

    Hi Guys, I have just installed a Chinese 2Din Android head unit but it frequently reboots with the Antenna plugged in, strangely rock solid if I don't plug the antenna in but of course I don't then have radio. I have got the antenna powered from the stereo and am using a Fakra adapter which...

I would like some advice on how to make more room, probably removing the rear door...

    Hello, 1st time Saab owner, just noticed while washing the car, the Shark fin antenna has been glued together in many places. Any advice on what to do with replacing it? I don't want any water getting through the shark fin cracks.

    The reception on my radio has always been a tad sketchy ...... I recently replaced the antenna amplifier which has improved matters greatly (The base radio setup) However the reception is heavily directional .... Any stations transmitted in front or behind is received well excellently even...

    Hi, Although it is only for show on my 1.9 tid as I have no satnav I still think it adds to the car`s appearance. It is starting to corrode a little bit and I wondered if anyone else had sourced a new one and how easy it would be replace as a DIY ! Cheers Jim

  14. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all. It must be the effect of the heavy frosts we have had last winter but my antenna no longer gets out of its housing. The motor appears to go through its motions but the stick stays put. If I pull on it, it comes out effortlessly and goes back in the same way. Is there a rapid fix for...

    I need what Saab calls the Antenna Rod for the OnStar Telephone at the back of my 2003 Saab convertible. It's really just a black plastic hood, or casing, that encloses the actual antenna. The part number is 5260575. Here in the States it costs a bloody fortune -- around $95 for what amounts to...

    Hi first off I'm from America so idk if anything would be different, but I'm guessing not. Ok so I got a 97 Aero with the Harmon Kardon stereo and put in a new stereo a Alpine iDA-X303 and I just cut wire harness off of the wires (the grey one) and wired up the ground, acc, and battery wire...
