I have got a 9-3 with the green screen icm2 head unit and a single CD player.

I know it is a major ball ache to change all the sat nav and DVD player over from an icm3 unit and don't want to do the whole hog.

All I want to do is change to the icm3 head unit for cosmetic reasons. I know it will need some tech2 jiggery Pokery and have a local Saab specialist that can hopefully help. So here are the questions I need answering please?

1. I'm assuming the head unit is a straight physical fit?
2. Are all the rear connectors the same?
3. Will the icm3 need to be divorced from the old car or can this be got around with a tech2 if it is not?
4. If I don't have the old car vin etc for the icm3 is it then just a brick?
5. Will the phone system still work?
6. Will the single CD player still work OK?
7. I have read that some icm3 installs can throw up strange and or incorrect display messages. Are these resolved after tech2?

Thanks in advance, just don't want to buy an icm3 unit if it not going to work or throiw up other issues?

Thanks, I did read them, but they don't have all the answers I'm looking for. Don't want to buy an icm3 and it don't work or causes loads of other issues

Well, I have now got an ICM3 unit to replace the ICM2 unit. As said before I know the Sat Nav fluff etc wont work as it is not installed in my car and this is for cosmetic reasons.
Before I take it out and fit it though, there isn't any more cables/connectors I need are there??
I'm assuming it is old ICM2 out and new ICM3 in and then Tech 2 to marry up????

Air vent can be a pain there's 4 or 5 tabs at the top that hold it in place
I use 2 or more little screw drivers to get it out, preferably one per tab
