  1. Radio Downgrade from Navigation to Standard Unit

    9-5 Workshop
    I am attempting to do the opposite of what most threads here discuss: My goal is to remove the navigation unit from my 2005 Aero and put in a nice clean standard head unit that I pulled from a 2004 Arc (single CD and tape deck, no screen). I like the all analog look :D and hope to put bluetooth...
  2. Where can I find a single din stereo adapter for my '02 9-5 in the US?

    9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    I've searched around on Google with no luck and most of the links I've found from this site are old/dead. I'm looking for a single din aftermarket stereo adapter for my 9-5. Unfortunately Crutchfield doesn't have them in stock. Ideally I'd want the tray above and stereo below. Right now I've...

    C900 Workshop
    After going through 3 sets of Clarion for Saab stereo / equalizer sets in as many years, I've decided to tear out the stock system and put in an aftermarket one that will (hopefully) function properly forevermore. Have gotten the rear speakers in... would have done the fronts too, but...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    So I've got a regular single DIN head unit, which came with a bracket. With the bracket removed it fit just fine into the 2 (1-3/4?) DIN slot in the dash. But there aren't any retaining tabs or anything, it just sits there. Next, with much effort, I removed the saab DIN bracket. The...
  7. Recommendations for radio replacement

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I'm thinking of replacing the stock radio in my 2007 Saab 9-3 Aero convertible with a touch screen CD/DVD player and possibly GPS. I'm asking for recommendations on make / model that would work best and is relatively easy to install. GPS isn't absolutely necessary, just a "nice to have". Any...
