For reference in order to change the time on the clock I...

    C900 Workshop
    Hello everyone, Quickly wanted to ask if there was a proper way to remove the front foglight switch on a C900? Mine won't stay in the on position so I have a replacement one I'd like to fit. Tried a few different ways to no avail and I'm hoping you don't HAVE to remove the entire fascia! I...

  4. Convertible top won’t ‘beep’ when down

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    When putting the top down everything works fine but the top will not give me the final ‘beep’. I have checked everything and the top seems to be completely down and the tonneau cover is locked in place. However, I get a ‘Check Soft Top’ message and a beep every time I start from a stop. I...

    Hey everyone. So my 2010 9-3 2.0T XWD has been giving me the "Service XWD" bing after driving around for 30 minutes or so. I took it to the mechanic and he cleaned / did a XWD service from eEuroparts. The light still comes on though. He said that I might need to replace the switch but wasn't...

    2005 Saab 93 Arc 2.0T Battery runs down while sitting overnight, the head light switch never did work. But always had DL lights so I never thought about fixing them. When I say never worked I mean when I turned it in any position nothing happened. I think when I first bought the car the...
  8. Headlight switch relocation

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I've been lurking and searching and pulling whats left of my hair out trying to make my idea work. Heres the scoop: I'm installing a boost gauge in the stock headlight switch location. That's the easy part. The hard part is, I want to be able to switch my headlights on and off. My plan so...
  9. Brake lights won't turn off

    9000 Workshop
    So, problems happen in threes.. right? My e-brake went, now the brake lights on my 9000 don't want to shut off. I've located the brake light switch under the pedal, and unplugged it, brake lights still stay on with car in drive, then plugged it back in, no difference. Would I be amiss to just...
  10. Ignition switch sticking/getting tough to turn

    C900 Workshop
    Well my ignition switch is becoming more and more difficult to turn. Want to take care of it before it freezes up completely. After doing a brief research of the topic on the forums, it looks like it could be anything from the lock needing lubrication, a lock cylinder replacement, or the key...

  12. Passenger door lock switch CV

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So when I bought my 04 vert almost 3 years ago it had one missing item that I thought rather strange. It came with a blanked out door lock switch on passenger side. I have seen other verts with the switch there so i figured it was just some weird option fitted. Fast forward to now and recently...

    Hi I have a 2004 SAAB 9-3 Aero and the sunroof has been acting up. It never worked when I bought the car so I am trying to fix it. Basically I can't get it to open. When I slide the switch forward, towards the windshield, it moves an inch or so along the track (tilt only, does not slide)...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Question... I had a front end accident that deployed both front air bags and killed the car immediately. I understand why and it's the disconnect switch on the battery.
