  1. Got my hands on something extremely rare

    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. 08 Aero Xenon Bulb out. Recommendations?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've replaced bulbs on the 03-07 models and if they're xenon, they're D2S and I have found philips/osram replacements on ebay before that weren't crazy expensive however I'm not so sure about the 08+. They're D1S but does anyone know where I can get reputable bulbs that aren't some weird color?

  5. DRLs intermittently turning off and on

    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...

  9. Brake lights!

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Where in the crap do you find new tail lights? None of the parts stores around me have tail lights for my 08 9-3. I ordered some LED ones from CARiD and they were not right, as I suspected might happen, even though they said they would fit my car. So where? Or did I just get the wrong ones from...
  10. Replacing the backlight bulbs on the manual climate control (MCC)

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Took on a small project this morning to replace a bulb behind the MCC on my 2005 9-3. It's pretty simple really, but sometimes pics are helpful so I thought I'd share the process. If you're taking this on I'll assume you've got the MCC removed already, but if not there is a great tutorial...

I assumed it was my Brakes/brake pad/break fluid ect. but I took it in to...
  13. STUPID QUESTION OF THE DAY: The fog lights are allowed to come on with headlights?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've had to my 93 going on 3 years now. When I first got the car it had the original setup of the headlights always coming on as the DRL's with the switch not doing anything except dash lights. This past summer I found someone an hour away with a Tech 2 willing to change it to the European...

  15. Offroad style led light bar?

    C900 Workshop
    Hi, I am really new to the saab community, simply because it's my first car. I don't like how the headlights aren't bright enough, and a trending thing to do in the prerunner and offroad jeep and truck scenes are aluminum led flood/spot light combo bars. I really like the bars and I plan on...
