Default Automatic Shifter Cover

A bit nit picky, but the plastic accordian piece that rides along with the automatic shifter is kaput. It no longer covers the mechanism in park or while in drive. Has anyone replaced this? Details? Parts list? Mechanic job?

Ok. I literally just did this an hour ago. I had the same issue.
Order a new accordion slide here:
http://www.thesaabsite.com/95/95transmission.htm (only $25.87) part 4

Install takes about an hour. and for mine i needed a pair of needle nose pliers, flat head screwdriver, Torx T10 driver, and the instructions for removing the gear shifter (auto) which can be found here: http://saabworld.net/f29/saab-9-5-gear-selector-casing-automatic-workshop-information-system-667/
It was fairly straightforward and not too complicated. Key points are having the selector in drive to get access to the screw and mine didn't require soldering because later models with sport button have clips that attach the wires. After following those instructions you pop off the selector cover (the rubber part around it and the thing that says P R N D ect.) which requires a flat head screwdriver and being careful and patient not to break the white plastic under. After this the old Accordion slide can be removed along with a transparent green film its attached to (put this back in with the new slide). Other than that its pretty simple. Just slide the new cover over the shifter and slide it into the track re-assemble and DONE.

I see you have a 2002, I assume that means that a 2005 also should have clips instead of soldering for the Sport button? Just wanted to be sure before I got it all apart and needed to obtain a soldering iron in the middle of my install, lol

Replace the shifter bulb while you are in there!

This is a 10 minute job if you clip one side of the shifter hole and slide the unit in place. The jalousie will slide front and back evenly and there is no side torque that will cause the unit to bind.
