  1. Radio Button Peeling/Chipping - any fix?

    9-5 Workshop
    Good morning all. Reaching out to see if there are any updates on how to repair/replace the buttons that chip and peel for our radios. Last update on here was 2015 from what I found in a search and there wasn’t a resolution. I can’t figure out what buttons they used from GM to put together the...
  2. Interior Cleaning

    Auto Detailing & Body Repairs
    I recently came into a SAAB 9-5. The interior was in bad need of cleaning, so I broke out my upholstery extractor and cleaning supplies. Everything is great except for some of the buttons on the radio and ACC. They had a sticky residue, and I have been unable to clean them successfully. I...
  3. How To: Replacing the Climate Control Dash Buttons

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I recently purchased the Automated Climate Control Panel Button Kit (part# 12781996) to replace the peeling buttons on my 2005 9-3 climate panel. Replacing the buttons look a bit more complicated; I tried popping one out gently and they are really in the panel. Can anyone share any...

  6. strange button parts missing

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi, I recently bought a used 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0T. I didn't see this at the dealership, so I'm taking these missing bits as a buyer beware situation I didn't heed. There are a series of buttons on the right of the steering wheel, I think they are called the profiler buttons, that don't work...
  7. Self-Tests/Calibrations and their button combinations?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I know there are certain buttons you can press to activate diagnostics/calibrations. For instance, on my 2000 93SE Conv., when you press AUTO and OFF simultaneously, it takes you through the calibration for all the HVAC flapper doors (that's how I located the problem with my blend door). The...
