  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I got a set of the Euro spec (no orange reflector) blue tint xenon lights for my 08 Aero. My original lights included Xenon and adaptive lights so they have the module for it, the new euro ones have xenon but no AFL. Is it possible to retrofit this without tearing the lenses apart? I have seen...
  2. C900 Workshop
    In the rebuild of my front-end bingled 2.1 sedan, I've now got to to the point where most of the re-assembly is done, and I'm fitting a spare set of headlights salvaged from another slope-front c900. I found one of the lights (the RHS one) has a broken adjuster. I note that Bill from Saabits...
  3. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello all! I was wondering if anyone could offer me some advice for using retrofit bi-xenon headlights. A little backstory about my car: My car has electrical problems that cause my headlights to be dim and burn out fairly fast (Within a week or so). I basically can't drive my car at night. I...
  4. 9-5 Workshop
    Has anyone done this successfully? Really struggling to find a definitive answer since it appears the CANBus system may have changed depending on MY? There is a lot of back and forth. Has anyone found a bulb/decoder/resistor combo (H7) that works? Just looking for some H7 lowbeam LEDs that will...

    Hey buds... I am experiencing an intermittent left headlight high beam problem. With apparently no rhyme or reason, the left driver's side headlight high beam lights, and then doesn't light. Sometimes it goes out while driving, and then sometimes it comes back on. It doesn't seem to relate to...

  9. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Good morning! After a burned out headlight, I decided to replace both bulbs, since they come in packs of two. Bulbs changed and the right one just does not light up light the left one. Seems like it is out of focus. I've taken it out, put it in, etc over and over and it's not bright...

    Hi everyone. I am the happy owner of a 2007 Saab 9-3 SC Arc 2.0T and I plan to remain happy by replacing my US spec halogen headlights with European ones because... the US spec headlights don't have a levelling motor in them (and the switch does not have levelling capabilities). In Europe...
  12. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So there are a few things I've come across with my first Saab that I have questions about. Some of these are not that big of a deal & are things I can live with, but I still wanted to ask if they're normal or not. 1 - Headlight switch: it doesn't seem to matter if it's on or off. The...
  13. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    My daytime running lights have just recently gone out. I see that they did that about a week ago, and then all of a sudden they came back on. And now they are off again. The yellow corner lights are still on, and my high beams do work. I am not sure what would cause this to happen. I checked the...

    First of all did something happen on this forum where passwords were reset?

    I've got an 04 9-3 Cabrio arc w/xenon headlights. After someone bcked into the bumper (hit and run) I replaced the bumper and brought it to a horrible bumper repair place called factory match bumper repair in San Diego who claimed he could make sure all the wires were in the right places...
