    SAAB UP everyone! I have some technical questions for you. my 9-5 is a 2000 SE, with manual seats. I have recently replaced my electric side mirrors with electric folding autodim mirrors (the more curvy newer version from facelifted 9-5). right now they are just replaced piece for piece...

    I've no std SPA but have got all the correct parts to fit, including a length of loom from the control unit, but now have to splice it in somewhere. Does anyone have instructions? Most of the info I've seen seems to relate to fitting the 9-3 kit. Thanks

    Hi all First post here so go easy on me! I'm not afraid to pick up a spanner, so, I'd really like to try and see if it's possible to retro-fit an auto-dimming rear view mirror in my 93 Vector Sport - 58' Having to do it manually in the winter months is a bit of chore. Is it possible? I've...

    9-3 2002 TiD. Can anyone point me to diagrams showing the multi pin connectors for the front seats please? My car has manual seats, the motorised set I've just bought don't work (hopefully only) because there's no lower female terminal/wire in the fuse slots. So I believe I need to run both...

    I'm really enjoying my manual TTiD Sportwagon, however does anyone know if it is possible to enable a one-touch triple blink of the indicators, or to retrofit the feature? I've grown used to this feature on a 2004 smart roadster, and have retrofitted it as a relay box (komfort blinker) on a...

    **PICTURES will be ADDED soon** Spotted some Saab heated seat pads on ebay for a good price so ordered them! Also saw a climate control panel with the heated seat buttons, ordered that too! I'd already had a look under the seats and the connectors for the seat heaters were there, ready and...

    Hello All! I've recently moved into Saab ownership with the purchase of a late 2007 93 vector sport saloon. I've already purchased an original sat nav unit for it from a smashed 2007 convertible (waiting for delivery!). I've read a couple of threads (one on here) about people that have...

    Hi all, I have recently sourced an original Saab sat nav unit for the new (MY 07) style dash. I am planning to upgrade my Sportwagon which currently has the 6CD in-dash changer head-unit. What is going to be required on top of the new head unit to get this up and running? I am assuming that...

    I know this may be a silly question, but have any of you fitted or attempted to fit an autodim rear view mirror to a 1999/2000 93 vert. I've currently got one in my possesion from a later 2003 - onwards waiting to be used or abused. I know physically these are not the same but with some...

    Well after buying a leather perforated sports steering wheel from a 95 aero (mmmmm nice!!!!) it doesn't fit - as I could have found out by searching in this forum first! the spline diameter on the 9000 (see part 8972929) is smaller that the 95. question is - and I know this is a long shot -...

    Hey! I'm a newbe here. Thanks to all for your support! I was looking at the specs on the 08> 9-3 and noticed that 'Auto' is now an option on the new headlamp switch. I understand that it functions with the light sensor in the center of the dash. Is it possible to retrofit this setup to an '07...

    Hi All, After much messing about collecting parts and "fettling" various things (such as a do it yourself GPS antenna in the original Saab sharks fin) etc, my retro-fit 2008 nav is now up and working (had it TECH2'd today at service time). I do however have a slight problem. Everything on the...
