    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    I have just bought my first Saab 2008 Aero 1.9 Diesel. I don't have the Satnav edition and don't have the 7-speaker set up.

  7. Door lock variations in year

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi I’ve got a few 93 models and I’ve had some door lock problems over recent times. I noted when experimenting with the two cars (2003 and 2006) that the door locks in the older model have an extra set of micro switches and this allows the car to know what state the lock position is in I.e...

    Hi All, Just inherited a W-Reg 2.0 SE Auto Cab HOT, and am going over the little things that seem to be wrong with it.
