    Hi The radio in my 2000 9/5 has suddenly lost its medium wave, it now just offers LW and FM. Does antone know if this is fixable? Can the radio in my car be replaced with a 3rd party one without making a mess? The Saab radio and housing look very specific. I'm sure the iPod issue is c overed...
