2005 SAAB 9-3 Aero Convertivble 5-Speed
Sounds like hidden treasures to me!!!So I went to a you-pull yard. They had about 10 NG9-3, one V6, the rest 2.0 of various vintages, not sure if any 2008+.
So I got a coolant tank with cap, RH and LH mirror glass in good condition, a hood alarm switch with intact rubber boot, a speaker connector that I will use for trying alternate speakers in the 9-3 centre speaker position, Three sets of manuals from various 9-3 and 9-5, and a windshield washer reservoir gooseneck for the 9-3. All that ran me $10. Oh well, it's a hobby.
- Every 9-3 had its ECU pulled
- All but one 9-3 had their coolant reservoirs removed. There was also one lying around loose, with its vent thingmy broken. I pulled the remaining reservoir, it held pressure when I blew into it (not much PSI, but still)
- All 9-3 with old style headlights with the three-leg plastic latch had all their low beam bulb connedtor and wiring cannibalized (i.e. snipped and gone....maybe I did some of that on the cars that have been there longer)
- All 9-5 (about 5) had been castrated
