Default Picture of Rear Xenon leveler sensor area

Hi All,

My rear "bar" (the little stubby piece) has broken off from the move-able sensor arm.
What I'd like is if someone could grab a picture from the rear of the car that shows the lower bracket that mounts to the main lower arm of the suspension. I think my lower bracket that has that stubby bar thing is bent in some weird angle. Before diving into this, I just want to confirm that it is actually bent (the stubby bar can't be moved to be vertical. It's max vertical is still about 45 degrees horizontal so the top is still pointing towards the rear bumper).

I appreciate the help all. I just need a visual is all.

WIS has a picture of the load sensor as installed, in the remove/fit section.


I should have a chance to crawl under the car later to take a picture.

Hi Nocturne,

I don't have access to my daughter's '06 9-5 SC with xenons today. But here is a LINK to the on-line WIS on replacing the rear sensor.

From this drawing, it appears as if both "pegs" should be exactly horizontal. Then the plane transverse to the car in which the sensor arm travels should be vertical, while the arm itself will be off-vertical when viewed from behind or from front. I know this is not as good as a photo, but none of the photos of rear arms I found show the bracket.

Hope someone can come up with a photo for you.

I took a look in the WIS. From the drawing it seems that my bracket is actually bent, but an actual picture would be better (sometimes they make the drawings to more clearly see how things go together and not accurately depicting subtle bends etc) since my bracket looks bent but there's no noticeable damage to it that would warrant it being bent this way. Hence, my confusion.
If you could get under there for me, it would be greatly appreciated!
Oh! And I joined the SAAB Club... Finally!

Exactly. This bracket is more unicorn than a 9-4x lol.
I'm also hunting for the stubby bar thing. Some places want $50+... Crazy! Oh, actually not really. It's the Canadian conversion

Rich got a better picture. It's probably not raining in the UK as much as it is in Toronto!


I plan to do some xenon troubleshooting at Saturday's tech session. (The RH bulb seems to flicker, while the LH doesn't. I am now suspecting it could be the ballast module, of which I have spares.)

Trust me, it's raining! But the car's tucked up inside and I'm using the wife's Ford.

Funnily enough I sometimes get a bit of flicker on one of mine. Keep us posted.

Not so sure about that as we have had 3mths rain in a week here in the middle of June which is unprecedented!
Even the World Cup Cricket has suffered huge disruption..........

Lake Ontario has for the past couple of weeks been at record levels (beating out 2017 which was 'unprecedented' at the time). Every time the water level starts to drop, it rains some more. According to one source, the outflow from the lake has been raised (there are power station dams on the St. Lawrence) to 10,400 cubic metres per second....and the levels aren't dropping.

In my local part, what was a picnic meadow has remained a duck pond since the spring. Well, the ducks like it.
