  1. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    How serious is moisture on the inside of the headlamp lenses? (1997 9000). It's not a lot, but does form into small droplets. Guess it's just the rubber seal but, the thing is, it's a garage job to investigate as I can't do my own work anymore. If possible, I'd prefer to leave it for 6 months...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have an issue with no power going to the lead for the zenon on the passenger side. Drivers side lights are fine I have swapped the bulbs, ballasts, and ignighters with the drivers side and all components are good. All Fuses are good. This leads me to believe it is the relay R-14 on the engine...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have an 04 Aero 9-5 that all of a sudden the daylight running lights stopped working. I checked the fuses and they are good. LOL I tried tappping both headlights still not working. smh .......help
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    It's that time again ... blown a bulb .... AAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH !!! This is the worst car EVER for changing bulbs, who on earth designed this thing so that anyone with hands bigger than a two year old is unable to change a side light bulb ?? Drivers side was bad enough last year but now the...
  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My lights are truly awful, to the point that its probably a unsafe to drive at night. I have changed the bulbs to Osram Night Breakers and although they look fairly bright when looking at them, when driving they are useless. A previous post about this prompted the likely issue is the angle...

  8. New Saab 9-5 (2010 - on)
    I have a 2011 Saab 9-5 Turbo4 Premium. Is there a way to activate the LED strip in the front headlamp assemblies? I was disappointed to find out that the LED's only turn on in the"technolgy package" option with the Bi-Xenon headlamps. Saab.com website states the following note under thestandard...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hoping that you knowedgeable guys on here will know what's causing the flickering Xenon headlamps snag with my 9-5? Think I disconcerted someone in an Aston Martin last night, following along behind, the headlamps were flickering away merrily! After flickering for several seconds, the OS...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Re Poor Dipped beam I have had my 'new' Saab 9-3 vector sport sportwagon (2007 model) for a month now and am thouroughly happy with it apart from 2 things: the suspension is a bit harsh (maybe my age or the potholes) but more importantly, the headlights on dip are awful...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Can't find any info on adjusting xenon headlights for left/right alignment on my 2004MY Aero, neither Haynes nor the handbook have the info. Before I touch anything, does anyone here know which direction the adjusting screws move the headlight - is it clockwise or anti-clockwise to move them to...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi , have a strange one on my 2006 9-5 estate. When ignition is on , but headlamps are switched Off or in Park , the nearside headlamp flickers (flashes very quickly) constantly . The offside headlight is off. When switch headlamps to On , the nearside headlamp comes on as normal (no flickering)...

    These really need to go, so I have reduced the price to £40 the pair. I bought them some years ago, as we always drove down to Austria in summer & winter (SWMBO doesn't like flying), plus other shorter trips to the continent. The extra light afforded by these lights with the correct asymmetric...
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    So, like many others I've been struggling with the poor dipped beam headlamps on the 93. I've had a set of nightbreakers waiting to go in for a while and finally fitted them this weekend. The job was pretty easy, following the instructions in the owners manual. I've got fairly big hands but...

    I bought these some years ago, as we always drove down to Austria in summer & winter (SWMBO doesn't like flying), plus other shorter trips to the continent. The extra light afforded by these lights with the correct asymmetric dip beam for driving abroad, particularly in the winter, is...

    Good morning, I have been seaching in vain to find out how to remove my main headlamp assy + indicator assy on my aero 2003 plate with bi - zeon. By looking I think it needs to have the bumper removed is this the case??
  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi folks. Have been checking the previous posts relating to HID dipped beams as mine are appalling. The headlamps do the up down up thing at startup and are not sitting at the bottom of travel, I have also checked that as the travel sensor is moved around they do alter height. So it's not just...

    I'm in the market for a pair of left-hand drive Xenon headlamps for a 2004MY Aero - the new ones are an eye-watering £512 each at Elkparts :eek: . Unlikely I know, but I'd be happy to take them off your hands if you have a pair.
