    I have a 2005 Arc 9-3 and I want to replace the rotten shark fin antenna, I have successfully removed the roof liner where it meets the third break light and have a little room to reach the bolt of the antenna.

    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.

    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

    Hi I've now entered into Saab ownership with a 2002 9-5 aero hot auto. The car has done some miles but is pretty tidy and been fairly well looked after. Anyway among a couple of cosmetic things that need sorting is a perishing rubber casing on the antennae. The car doesn't have sat nav and I...

    Dear SAAB Forum During the very hot weather last year (yes there was....) the shark fin on the roof of my estate cracked and is now slowly disintegrating. Does this serve any purpose? Should I replace it?

    Ok I know this has been covered because I have searched.... However, my shark fin is tatty, and I'm obviously not prepared to pay the OEM price of £60 ish for a new Saab one. I found this on ebay: Clicky looks pretty stock to me and for a fiver I suppose it can't be bad. Anyway I guess I'm...

    Hi My roof aerial is in dire need of replacement and seems to have rotted away and cracked. Strangely it doesn't seem to be raining in the car but I need a replacement. I've been looking at stupid prices of £50-£100 or so which to be honest I don't see the point in paying that much. I was...

    hi Guys just bought a 2003 1.8t arc it is the newer shape and the roof aerial is split and looks awful. I have seen cheap ones on e-bay ---are they any good? how do you fit them? and finally some of the listings say that they are dummys --- so am I correct in saying that they are not serving...
