    Saab 9-3 & GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi.. Can I use later model cd changers with my original head unit or must I replace with the same one that's failed which says it's a 1998 unit too ? Happy to use converter cable if a available. Theres always new old stock 2003-2006 models available so that would be good if they work with mine?

    Morning one and all, My 2001 93 convertible will only open its boot with the key. I've looked this up on here and most suggestions focus on the wiring from the car body to the boot lid. Mine looks to be in excellent nick - the conduit for the wires is in perfect condition, so I can't imagine...
