    Hey all, For a couple of weeks now I've had the message on my SID "Number Plate Bulb Failure". I figured, i'd get round to it at some point. Well Saturday I changed the bulbs over with brand new ones and it didnt work. Checked the fuse, no problems with that... besides other things wouldn't...

    Hello All. I have a 2007 9-5 Aero which has the self levelling Xenon HID bulbs. My manual does not tell me what type of bulb I need as a replacement but simply states it needs to be done by an Authorised Saab Service centre. Hard to find nowadays as you can imagine !! My wife has a 9-3 with...

    Ive looked on the search tool but cant find anything, basically im trying to get some more light from the back when reversing as my estate has pretty dark rear tints.

    I've got an 06 95 estate with a blown headlamp bulb. The lens is like a bottle bottom so I thought it was xenon, but when I removed the connector I see 2 blade connectors but the bulb appears to be glued in with something brown. Can someone point me in the right direction please.

    Hello all ! So the other day my light bulb on the Lefthand side died on me. Now I have already looked up some information. I'm looking at a few possibilities and I was hoping you guys could help me? I have seen Night breakers by Osram. Which I like because they're really white (I suppose) and...

    SID popped up today with 'right dripped bulb failure'. Checked handbook and it appears I need a H7 bulb but apparently it could be either halogen or xenon. How do I know which is which? Are they interchangeable? Is there much difference between the two?

    After 30 mins of skint knuckles I've been unable to replace left hand dipped headlight bulb, despite following the oversimplified instructions in the handbook.

    I have a 2006 1.9 diesel 93 vector saloon. I am intermittantly getting bulb failure alarms even though the relevant bulb is OK. It affects mostly stop and dipped bulbs. Checking previous threads it seems the same problem as the Filament Monitor causes. Is there a Filament Monitor on the CanBus...

    Hi, I am trying to help a friend who has a problem with her 2007 9-3. The SID is saying the front right fog light has failed. It has not. I have done my best searching for an answer. Commonly people say it is a sign one or both bulbs are about to fail. I have tried replacing both bulbs but...

    Can anyone advise me of a suitable headlight bulb upgrade for my 2006 9-3? (YSF3) I have standard headlights with H7 lamps., I think. Presumably these are 55W. Is there a suitable upgrade to give a higher output or brighter light on dip, as tonight driving home, it was bordering on dangerous...
