  1. C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Hello, I wanted to know if the cool aero mirrors from the convertibles fit right onto a normal mirror for my 1986 saab 900s? Do wires just plug in? How hard to wire heated mirrors since most aero mirrors came with the heated function I believe. Any insights please...? Pics are from our...
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    It's been a couple years since I've been to SC, but I just purchased an '06 9-5 and it has dimming door mirrors. I've searched, but I can't find what I'm looking for. Both door mirrors are almost black and are almost unusable, and finding replacements have been a nightmare. Does anyone have...

    Hey guys, I have been searching for some instructions on how to detach the rear view mirror from the windshield in my 03 SE convertible and have had no luck. It looks like you should be able to put something into the top of it where it connects to the windshield to pop it off, kinda like a...

    Anyone have an opinion on the quality of the URO brand mirror cover's PN 12797722/12797723.

    My electric mirrors stopped responding to the memory settings :(. If i hold 1,2,3 the seats change to the saved position but the mirrors don't. I can adjust them manually no problem but they don't go back to the saved position. I also have the button that makes the right mirror look down for...

    Hi All, Girlfriend wrecked the passenger mirror and I need to buy the at least the plastic cover, the glass and possible the internal motor. I saw this one on ebay, but it says it's only for up to year 2007? I thought the mirrors on the 9-3 were the same in 07 as 08? Also, the color is...

    Wife would like it fixed...it opens and the light comes on, but she has to hold the cover open... I searched and found issues with the whole visor drooping but this is just the vanity mirror cover. Is it just a simple spring inside? I'd get a replacement spring if that's the case and I had...

    Noticed the passenger side mirror was a little shaky when I was out earlier today in the rain. Pulled into a parking lot and it was just about fall off. So i pulled it off and also removed the mirror mount/heating element. After a bit of research I used some silicone caulk type adhesive/sealant...

    Hello All, Tonight as I was driving home from a long day at work, completely exhausted. I was driving through some construction and hit an oddly placed tall and skinny cone. It hit my passengers side mirror housing and did nothing but knock the glass mirror part out and shatter it, but it was...

    Hi everyone, I own a 2005 9-5 sedan - and loved it - (note the past tense) until saab went oob and the dealership closed here in Metro DC. Now it is a huge major pain to get work done on my car. So now again the plastic housing on the driver's side seat has broken and is falling off - its...

    I'm looking at purchasing a smart mirror - one with auto dim, compass, and HOmeLink - for my 2006 9-3 2.0T. Before doing so, I thought I'd try to take apart the housing to see where everything goes but immediately ran into problems. The plastic housing above the mirror appears to be in...

    Hi, Car is an '08 Aero with auto-dimming interior and exterior mirrors. All was fine until a few weeks ago, when I noticed the drivers (RHD) side mirror was permanently dimmed. The interior and passenger mirrors seem fine - it's just the drivers one that's causing problems. It remains...

    Hello all, I looking for a little advice. I have a 2005 9-3 Arc with heated mirrors. Recently, I accidentally bumped (and not very hard) the back of my passenger side mirror. Next thing I knew, the mirror glass was on the garage floor in pieces. When I looked at the mirror housing to see what...
  19. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi, I'm new here so perhaps a short intro first: I used to own a '98 9-5 2.0. Due to a break in an oil line behind the engine I had to scrap it and spent the last 12 months in a 3dr RAV4 - completely different but kinda fun. Although hard to fit the golf clubs and trolleys in. The RAV has now...
