grentarc hi from another ausy, i can't help you with your queiry, i'm a virgin when it comes to saabs so i'm still (just) starting to learn. i'm trying to sort out some problems with my 9000 and saw you post. my cruise control is not working and i'm wondering which vacc hose you replaced. so i can check mine. or at least eliminate another possible cause. oh, by the way got any contacts in aus for parts.
