Topic: Parts – what’s new and interesting. Buy, sell, put in your “wanted” ads.
Parting out what is left of a 1996 9000 Aero. Recently saved this car from the crusher to get some parts out of it.
ongoing listing of parts that are out can be found here.
Hopefully this can help some people out.
Got a recall notice for airbag. Closest service to me is Roy Foss. Anyone have experience with Saab service there? Is Budd’s a better bet? Michael
There is nothing complicated about the airbag replacement (old module is removed, new one installed). I think it takes half an hour. So as long as they are able to get the part and willing to do the swap, I wouldn’t worry.
If they hem and haw, Budd’s in Oakville has been doing lots of airbag replacements recently.
Hi, I’m looking for the less expensive way to replace the windshield (front, w/o sensor) that came cracked with my Saab 9-3 sportcombi 2006. Thanks!
What is less expensive?
I was quoted $350 for windshield installed in my 9-5 with rain-sensing. Would not have been OEM obviously. This was at A&W Glass, 821 Kipling.
The windshield is a structural part, and a safety item in a collision. I would not try to replace one on my own!
Wanted: 16″ Saab OEM alloy rims for 9-5. Southern Ontario.
These are 16×6.5 with ET49. Can also be from older 9-3.
I have a few sets of different designs but they all have one or more bent rims. If you have individual rims or a set sitting in your basement, let me know how many and which design. Maybe your set is good, or maybe I can combine your rims with one of my sets to make a complete set. Thanks!
Looking for front end body parts for 02′ 9-3 convertible blue with tan leather interior. Hood, headlights, side lights, Contact me at email@example.com if interested please. Also fyi I am in the London, ON area but willing to travel if necessary (within reason). Thanks everyone
While my membership is pending I do have a quick and hope easy question. After storing my 2006 9-3 aero manual tran with the battery disconnected for the winter I am recieving the following message after reconnecting charged battery:
“Steering lock malfunc. make safe stop. contact Saab dealer.”
I have disconnected (waited 10 minutes) and reconnected battery, inserted key waited, removed it and then reinserted it again. Key will still not turn out of lock and still same error message. It is stored way back on the property and without steering cannot get to a tow truck (laugh now).
Any help or suggestions will be considered.
I found a Saab bulletin 383-2623 that describes the exact issue you are having. It looks like it was a recall. You can contact Budd’s Saab or your local (ex) Saab dealer to get information whether your car is part of the problem. The following is kind of a garbled copy but you get the idea:
MODIFICATION INSTRUCTION Bulletin Nbr:383-2623 Date:………..Juni 2006 Market:enl. separat lista Replacing the steering column lock

A personal communication must be sent to the owners of cars already delivered requesting them to get in touch with the nearest Saab garage as soon as possible to have the fault rectified.
Saab 9-3 M05-06 within Vehicle Identification Number ranges 51049407 – 61006320 and 56016430 – 66002064
Cracks in the hall sensors have arisen during the manufacture of steering column lock units.
The car cannot be started and the message “Steering column lock. Stop safely. Contact workshop” is shown in the SID.
Thanks for this response and the email about this. Great to be part of a group so willing to lend a hand. I did check on the recall and my VIN is not in the range for this.
As soon as I get this fixed I will post and let you all know what we did, just in case for some one else.
There is a rumored work around for removing a fuse, so I am following up on then.
Best & Thanks, Marsha
I did get it running. Buffalo, NY has a Saab repair guy with cars in various stages on his lot. Carlos came out the where the car was parked with his Tech2 computer. He overroad the steering wheel lock and reset everything. Minutes later he drove it out of the very narrow drive and I am ready for summer. The price for a house call w/repair was way resonable.
If you are willing to drive to Buffalo, NY give Carlos a call. 1+716.939.5183. He has an assortment of parts.
Someone lost their 2008 9-3 SC, and is getting rid of filters, oil change stuff, wheel caps, etc. etc. In Bowmanville ON area.
WANTED TO BUY.
I have a 1997 Saab 900S 2.OT that in fairly good condition and has developed a recent backfire no start condition… so far I have tracked it to the Direct Ignition Cassette (which has several cracks on 3 of the 4 stalks) where is a good place to get a replacement in the GTA and what is the average cost to expect.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
You need the red cassette, that’s a bit harder to get new. It was found in 900/9-3 cars up through the 1999 model year, then they switched to black. If you can make it to a you-pick junkyard, you could get a cassette, it should be pretty quick to see if it works better than what you have. I would guess that a yard might charge you $25-45, it can depend on their mood. I know there’s at least one car with a red cassette at Cookstown auto wreckers.
Some of the local shops that take apart cars might have a good one from a car. You could try Zoom or Beacon and see what they say. Or, keep your eye out for someone scrapping a car. Kijiji is your friend.
Getting a new red DIC will cost lots more.

I’m looking to replace the convertible top on my 89′ 900 Turbo. Does anyone know of any decent shops in the GTA who will do this?
Hi All, need left front fender, 2002-93 hatch, Toronto area – will travel to pickup. Also, driver’s window does not go UP from the switch; am able to operate the motor directly; Is the switch removeable from the control box and/or can the box be opened? Are these switch boxes interchangeable?
Got fender, me happy! window still bad, me not happy; still need help.
Is your car two-door or four-door?
Does it have a sunroof?
This makes a difference because the switch layout changes. I have a couple of spare switchboxes but one is for a coupé without sunroof, and another is for a convertible.
I have heard of people opening the boxes and fixing the switches inside. The box itself pries up, I think from the back. You may want to check someplace like SaabCentral. If it was me, I’d hit a pull-your-own junkyard and see if they have a 9-3 with same layout as yours and grab the switch pack.
Thanks Ed, mine is a 4-door hatch with a sunroof; will take your advice.
Here’s something to finish up your ’80s Saab restoration….the safety triangle. Looks cool!
l remember coming across a wrecking yard in or about London, Ontario, that only deals in salvaging SAAB’s……anyone have his number/location?
I will be bringing my 95 Areo to a mechanic as the right headlight goes on and off. It is definately not the bulb! I would say that it is the electrical going to it. I don,t know so perhaps you could advise me.
A great big pile of Saab parts:
Sold as a lot. I wonder what’s in there? I see a 9000 taillight and maybe some aero rims….
Very interesting. The rims do look like 9000 Aero. I can also see at least one chrome hub cup for early 900 (1982) so its a mixed bag.
Not really a note about parts, but I’m interested in any of your are changing your transmission fluid. I have a 2006 Saab 93 4 cylinder Turbo, 190000 km. When I kick in the turbo at around 100 km/hr, I get slippage for a second with a higher gear. Anyone had this? I have never had this problem with any of my cars and my car is very well maintained (I took auto mechanics in school)! 🙂
There is nothing in my manual about changing out transmission fluid and I don’t even know if it has a plug so I can do this. Any assistance/advice/information would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance,
Diana, is it an automatic or a manual? You might want to check out the NG9-3 forums on saabcentral.com. A lot of the newer automatics are closed up, and the filters are internal. That does make it tricky. Sometimes a replacement transmission from a scrapped car is indicated. 🙁
Anyone fixing up a later 99?
Did I post this before?
“All parts necessary to convert to 1988-1993 Saab 900 to Aeroflow Aero Flow SPG Special Performance Group body skirt molding. Very good condition, one piece has small hole/scuff but easily repaired. Includes the hard to find mounting clips too! “

Here’s a grab-bag for owners of Viggens and the like. It’s for “Saab Enthusiasts” which would be us, right?
I am looking for a Ignition Coil for a 97 Saab 900 Turbo. My car was parked for a long time (2-3 years) and have just got it going again, but I have a check engine, and the car seems to studder/doesnt seem to be firing properly. My Mechanic said the next step is to replace the Ignition Coil, however they are very expensive, and am haivng a problem locating one….
I’m located in Toronto and need some help/suggestions from my Saab Family…
You can try new correct NGK plugs, set to the correct gap. If that doesn’t help, then yes the DIC would need to be replaced. You might find a Saab in the junkyard with a DIC that you can grab. That would be cheaper than a new one. Everything I hear says “avoid the made in China DICs”.
Someone is selling a new key fob shell(s).
Some 900/9000 non-turbo parts. Looks like an interesting collection. I’m not sure if they fit a NG900 2.3, or only the 9000 with the non-turbo.
SELLING 1982 SAAB 900
Engine fire, hood damage, car would need top of engine.
My ’97 SAAB 900 SE TURBO CONVERTIBLE has been out for the winter. Summers approaching and it has some details that I want to fix before taking it on road. If any of you have, or knows where I can purchase the following parts it would be a great help.
– A Driver side fender over the back tire
– A Glove compartment
– the Driver side light
– A new Gear Shifter Knob
– A new Hood Emblem
The gear shifter knob I’d check with a dealer, such as Budd’s. I’m not aware of any aftermarket equivalents. I think I paid around $65 for a new leather knob.
Which light are you looking for? Anyway, a junkyard should be able to help you, or GB Autos has a big supply. 900 and OG9-3 interchange, so you don’t need to find a ’97.
Glove compartment, you want to find a 900 in the junkyard. The 9-3 black doesn’t match the 900 black. No 900s at Cookstown, but maybe Mike’s would help. This should be cheap.
The rear fender is part of the quarter panel, so you’d need to talk to a body shop about that.
I have 4 wheels off my 1990 Saab 900 Convert. the tires are almost new, the wheel are in very good shape, no curb rash of dents, they would be fine for Winter Tires. $300.00,
Has anyone heard of the company VTuner or used it on there car? It is flash tuner for your computer.

Saab roof racks are getting rarer. Here’s racks for the 900/9-3 sedan, at a very good price:
Free–FREE-radio and remote for a 1999 9-3.
There have been some other free parts ads popping up on kijiji, but the items tend to go quickly, so you should check for yourself. By the time I catch them and repost here, they could be gone!
GB Autos would like to move some of their parts supply to Saab owners in need. I got a tour, and there’s LOTS.

Someone has got to buy this actual SAAB neon sign!
This is a 72″ long genuine commercial SAAB neon sign that came from a Canadian SAAB dealership. $150 OBO. Located in Barrie.

I’m looking for the following coil for 1989 Saab standard, non turbo unit.
Coil and model assembly only.
Please send me a price, an availability and tested unit confirmation.
Viggen wheel/tire. Can’t beat the price: free! Funny, I seem to be the first person who clicked on that ad….
I have some parts for a 1985 SAAB … spare tires, wheel, headlight, other miscellanous small items.
I am giving these to anyone who is interested, so free to you.
I live in South Mississauga area.
That’s a great offer! Thanks for posting it here, hopefully these parts go to a good home.
Hi Rick, i’m looking some parts for my 1985 SAAB 900 16 valve Turbo. It was a distributor assembly. give my a call my cell 647-830-9557, thanks.
I am selling / parting out a 1982 Saab, 4 door Automatic.
The body and many parts are in mint condition.
There was a small engine fire but engine was spared, mostly electrical and localized fire. (hood just needs repainting)
I can send more photo’s and further details soon: but here is the kijiji ad:
Hello ! Does anybody know how to fix the vinyl driver seat cushion , or replace it ? It’s a SAAB 9-3 / 2006 . Thanxx
I don’t usually post wheel sets but this one is too good a deal to ignore. 16″ steel rims, I assume OEM because they have Saab wheel covers, AND winter tires with usable tread, for $150. Well! If only I had more room in my basement.
If you have a NG900, you can really, really use this book:
The electrical diagram alone is worth the $10 asking price here.
Four-bolt OEM Saab rims, kind of Minilite style:

Long time lurker first time poster. Have some extra saab stuff my boyfriend and I are looking to sell finally. Clearing out the basement. These are from part out vehicles. Have a couple fuel pumps, ac compressor, amp, maf, sid, radio, etc. Lots more. Also have transmission and differential fluid as well. Please contact me at email@example.com if interested.
These look like 16″ Super Aero (?) rims for a 9000 or C900.
SAAB Mass Air Flow Sensor, for my Saab 900 SE, turbo 1996.
Umm, doesn’t the T5 use a MAP rather than a MAF?
I have a wind deflector for a 2004 on 9-3 convertible in A1 condition, looking to swap / sell for same item that will fit a ng900 / early 93.
Also have a manual tranny from a 2000 9-5 Aero complete with clutch shifter and mounts again in A1 working order – make me an offer.
Wind deflector is gone…any takers on the transmission? – it works perfectly.
Howdy, a newbie from the Wet Coast. On my second 900s: 1995. 2.3 l, non-turbo, auto. Nice car but running rough. Scan indicates need for Mass Air Flow Sensor.
I can supply picture if you send email address. Easy part to remove. Just downstream of air filter.
Anyone have one? Anyone in Vancouver area?
I would start in the junkyard. I have a spare, but I’m not even sure if it works. It seems that the plug for the MAF might be different over the years, although I have not seen that myself–but someone on SaabCentral is dealing with this issue.
A junkyard shouldn’t charge more than $10 for a MAF I would think.
Have you tried spraying it with some MAF-specific cleaner? Are you using a performance air filter or stock?
Someone buy these rims! I have no space in my basement for any more!
For 9000 (and I guess classic 900) owners, here are some very nice-looking rims at a good price:

Hi guys. New to the forum, but I am looking for the passenger side tail light bulb socket/circuit board and a connector.
I also need a the windshield wiper motor/transmission linkage.
My car is a 2003 Saab 9-3 Linear.
I haven’t seen any NG9-3 in the junkyards’ you-pull section, although I’m pretty sure I’ve seen various later 9-3s behind fences. Another possibility is to follow kijiji, and also see if anyone is parting a 9-3 on saabcentral. You could also give Zoom a call, they dismantle Saabs in their shop.

i have 95 Saab 900 convertible with 73000 miles on it.out of florida,and it now
has seen its first winter.
i would like to find the magazine that holds the Cd’s inside the CD changer
thanks in advance
I see quite a few cars in the junkyard with the changer still installed. I have no idea how much the yards might charge for the entire changer. I suspect that they may be reluctant to sell just the magazine, assuming you could get it out (the electrical system will be dead, so it would have to come out manually somehow).
In summary, I think your best bet is to get an entire changer, complete with magazine, either from a you-pull junkyard, or from someone parting out a Saab, or someone who has upgraded their system and has the changer lying around. As far as I know, there’s no huge demand for stock Saab 900NG audio systems.
I think I have one have will fit. firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have a late model C900 convertible, there’s a very nice 1993 that recently showed up at Cookstown. Top, interior, and back from the grille it looks in great shape. I’ll post pictures in the main area soon. Get your C900 parts while you can!

Here’s an ad titled just “Saab Parts” so I have to put it up here!
Actually, it’s a partout of a 1986 900. The body looks in really good shape. Ad says:

Everything else works good including $100 power window motor
Seats in great condition
Too bad hes in Ottawa would have been a nice parts car to that 91 spg for sale on kijiji.. One day will have one but will stick with my NG till then.
Hi new here and love the site. Have had my saab for a year and have enjoyed every minute now. Its coming to the time to find extra parts to keep her running and have noticed Cookstown being mentioned by Ed for parts. Unfortunately I have missed out on a couple of parts cars over the winter in the 400 – 500 range in my area east of Toronto. Just asking if Standard auto wreckers is a good place to check out once in awhile for my model range. 1997 900s 2.3l 4 door. Thanks for any advice or leads.
You can check out Standard but the last time I was there they didn’t have much. Of course these things change, and spring might bring in a new crop of winter beaters or cars that ran into something they shouldn’t have.
Dom’s in Bowmanville also has Saabs, although their cars are more parted out and picked over I find.
I haven’t been up to Cookstown since winter started, so I’m not sure what’s up there. 900S cars show up often enough. It depends on what parts you’re looking for, of course.
By the way, my Saab is a 1997 900S 2.3 coupé (as Saab calls the two-doors).
Hi Ed thanks for the info. With great luck I just purchased a 97 parts car through kijiji its the Talladega model and has all the parts I will need minus the auto tranny as mine is stick. Great body on it, not running too well but for 350 I will save a lot of time staying away from the wreckers. Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular other than yours being a coupe. Take care.
Glad you succeeded. Cookstown currently has only one 900, a 900s with 2.3/auto that’s totally trashed out. I’ll be posting pictures soon, but basically you don’t want to poke your head inside the car, never mind pull interior parts. And it’s severly rusted to boot.
I never know I need something until I see it. 🙂
How is the trunk carpeting? I have had some leaks and dirty items put in there. Clean non-dampened trunk lining would be useful. (To get the sides out properly requires pulling the rear seats, and I think rear seat belts. I went through all that a while ago.)
Yikes–anyone want a big, big box of Sonnett III parts? Under a grand!
Here’s one for 9-3SS folks; these cars come up rarely as parts cars:
Swapped my ’99 9-3 for a 2008 9-3 Aero a couple of weeks ago – love it. Then, I backed into a snowbank and pulled off a small chunk of the plastic bumper around the exhaust off. Bummer.
I’m north of Toronto (Newmarket) – anyone know of a saab-capable autobody shop around here? I don’t want to go through insurance, so I’m hoping to find someone to weave some magic and not charge me thousands of dollars.
All help appreciated!

Any help on this?
Looking for a pioneer Amp 1 as fitted to 9-3 2003-2006. Part # 12757370, it’s located under the drivers seat rail.
Alternatively, who are the best suppliers of used Saab parts from the GM era models?
A pile of some really old NOS parts, 900 or 99 or 96 or ?? I don’t know! And only $40!
Is that funky device in picture #2 a set of points? I have no other explanation for the “LONG LIFE” on the parts card.
Hi, new to the club. I recently bought my second Saab but it was missing the passenger side front floor mat?!?! So I am looking for used or new one.
2006 Saab 9-3 T
Front Passenger side
And a full set if rubber OEM ones if anyone has a set…or stumbles across some in a yard and is willing to ship it out to Calgary for a finders fee.
Let me know
call these guys in toronto they may ship. Brand new mats in black, i just bought a set for $79 their number is 647-999-3193
9000 are getting rare. Here’s one which may wind up going for parts, or not:
Maybe one of the Club’s 9000 owners is interested?
I’ve decided that I have to give up on my ’86 – 900S with the collapsed rear suspension. It served me well as a daily driver for 14 years and ran better than when I bought it after a wiring fix about 6 years ago and was noticeably quicker than my ’88 -900. A great motor with only about 440k on it. I’ll also be getting rid of my ’86 900s parts car. I would rather that anything useful goes to someone who needs them now or might in the future rather than to the crusher. I am near Bolton, NW of Toronto, email me at email@example.com. Brian
Wow, thanks Paul. That car looks in better shape than my SPG! I will call them and see if it warrants a visit on the weekend.
Looking for the right front fender for my 900C. Has to be rust free. Ed, have you been to any 900C-friendly junk yards lately?
Is there a year range or will any 900C do?
What are the significant rust places I should look for?
Would the fender require the yard to pull it (if it’s welded on)? If it’s not really a pull-your-own, I’d start by phoning both Mike’s in Stoney Creek and Cookstown and get a quote on a fender. Last time I went , there was a lone 900C in each of the yards. I don’t know what shape the fender was in.
Classic 900s are all the same. Well, at least back to 1979 when they had a nose job done. That’s the beauty of these older SAABs. They changed very little over the years. So just about any 900C will do for me, but of course the newer the better. The last model year was 1993. This would be the best. Least rust, one would hope.
I just stumbled across this one one says they have a couple but this one looks fairly clean.
REAR ENDED in BC 🙁
Now we need a driver’s side tail light (or a pair, if we can’t match what is already there) for our 1995 Saab 900.
Are you in BC or Ontario?
All second-gen 900s had the same taillights, so any parts car will do. 9-3 taillights won’t fit. My recommendation (as always) is to find a self-serve junkyard and grab a taillight in good condition. It should not be hard to find one. My guess is that they will charge around $25 or $30, you can always ask beforehand.
Getting a “new” taillight means aftermarket, which may not have the quality of the Saab original (probably made by Valeo).
I think I have a driver’s side taillight which had a crack in it (replaced with a good unit from a junkyard of course). If I do (I’ll have to check) you can have it for free as it sounds like yours is ruined. But that’s if you’re in the Toronto area, not in BC.
Alternatively, you can look in ads like Saabcentral or kijiji for people parting out cars. Shipping from the US is not likely to be cost-effective.
1987 Turbo convertible. Pictures look nice, but “wiring issues”.
Hi Every one, hope i can ask this here,…
I am in need of one or two 2001 Aero Rims for my 9-5 urgently! If anyone can help me, i would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
For classic 900 owners, here’s a trailer hitch for you. Make your Saab even more useful. (I have a trailer hitch on mine. Great when the trunk or roof racks aren’t enough.)
I have a trailer hitch that came off my 1992 Saab 900. Will fit 1989-1993 Saab 900’s, and possibly other years.
Easy 10 minute instal. All hardware is included.
Sold the car, and no longer have a need for it.
Asking $50 or best offer.
Hi, everyone. Assuming I don’t get an offer to buy my ’99 9-3 in the next week or two, I’m going to be parting it out. So, if you’re looking for anything from it, let me know what you want and I can set it aside for you.
I believe these are random Classic 900 parts, from the pictures:
Non-turbo (?) classic 900 coupe, looks not too rusty, and going cheap: http://ontario.kijiji.ca/c-ViewAdLargeImage?AdId=533641061&Keyword=saab
And finishing up the C900 thing, more parts including head and 5-speed transmission, seller would rather have them go to someone who can use them than the scrapyard: http://ontario.kijiji.ca/c-cars-vehicles-auto-parts-tires-engine-engine-parts-Saab-parts-W0QQAdIdZ533234853
Any ’85-’88 900 3-door owners? Here’s an ad for stuff that’s “cheap”. I like cheap, and if my car can’t use it, maybe someone else’s can.
For you demon hot-rodders out there, braces for a 900/9-3:
I saw a couple of 9-3 SCs at the last meeting. Here’s something for them:
2006 Saab 9-3 Sport-Combi Trailer module and computer for towing.
Simply plugs into manufacturers system.
Make an offer/negotiable.
This is the first time I enter the forum and the reason he is next, in 1980 my father had the Saab repesentación to the Canary Islands, once the leave, the stock of spare parts for the models and 90 were saved 900.99.95.96 in a warehouse
Today I am sorting by the referencias and in their cases, all parts are original and first-hand, made in Germany, England, Sweden and Germany Este.I am creating a website for sale. While I’ve seen forum parts. If ask anyone needs one I could sell it.
I have headlights, gearbox, pinion gearbox, camshafts, water pumps, diesel, etc, brake pads, vacuum tripods, bosh for Saab dealers and many more all original parts and first-hand.
If anyone is interested, you can contact me. thanks, my email is
I have 2 pdf with the parts , references picture and price that I can send to interested
I have a set of 4 rims that I’m trying to get rid of.
Update from a couple of junk yards.
Mike’s in Stoney Creek still has about four or five NG900s, a beat-up C900, and I think one 9000.
At Cookstown, the situation is grim but interesting. Most of the NG900s/9-3s and 9-5s that were there earlier this year have been crushed, or are in the final pile before crushing (I got a few parts off an imminently doomed 9-3). However, there’s a nice C900 turbo coupe, with a pretty good interior. Car has apparently taken a bash in the nose, but what I can see of the engine looks pretty good. The spoiler is sitting loose, ready to take. There’s also an unusual (Saab aftermarket?) spoiler on one of the two NG900s that is sitting in the yard.
i also have a car that’s being parted out. if anyone is needing some parts from a 2000 95 wagon, beige interior with turbo 2.3l. let me know. only have it for a bit till i scrap it. car has a blown head gasket but all in all has many good parts.
hi jc, any chance you may have mass air flow sensor, DI cassette and abs module?
Do you still have the car for parts. I am in need of the shifter from the top of the transmission. Mine has disintigrated for some reason, melted the plastic socket. Thanks Rip
I have a 1992 Saab 9000 Hatchback that need’s to go. Approx 360,000km. It was my daily driver until a brake line at the accumulator starting leaking and it does not justify further repairs. The body is in good shape “for the vintage”. It is grey/beige with a beige cloth interior. The seats are in excellent shape – they used a very durable cloth. All exterior lenses are in good shape. The car is non-turbo with an automatic. Engine was running fine and passed e-test. The transmission seemed was working fine – seemed to have no major issues at the time I stopped driving it. Has a newer front down-pipe, catalytic converter and rear muffler. Some chain noise. Has summer and winter steel rims. I also have a few new spare parts – oil filters, cabin filter, air filter and an assortment of other misc used spares including a second red DI cassette. My wife and I now drive his and hers 9-5’s so we are still in the family. As some of you know, the 9000’s have a great handling dynamic, superior to the 9-5’s in many ways. I still like sitting in the car – the interior was way ahead of it’s time back when the first 9000 left final assembly. Sadly, its now a restoration project for an enthusiast or parts car. Would like it to live on in whole or in part on our roads rather than having to call for a highway to heaven pickup. Dave at 905-659-0628. Best or first offer(s).

Bolt pattern is 4×108, so as far as i know would fit a mercury cougar as well.

By the way, I don’t know who this person in the Kitchener area is, but she/he posts quite a variety of interesting Saab parts. Well, I assume it’s the same person. There’s no “see other ads by same poster” link, unfortunately.

Back in Burlington at the weekend
I am looking for OEM or similar after market front floor mats for a 2004 93 Linear. Anyone know where I can source these in the Toronto area.
Are you looking for new, or would used do?
For used, you could try phoning around junkyards and seeing if they have any of your generation 9-3 in stock. These are too new to show up in the you-pull section, where you can check out the mats and grab them if they’re nice.
For new, maybe try Budd’s? They may have some left-over floormats. With the small number of Saabs made, I’m not sure there will be a lot of aftermarket sources.
Thanks Ed for the suggestions. New or used would be ok as long as they are in good condition.
It doesn’t hurt to follow kijiji and craigslist. I see floormats come up from time to time. There’s a set of rubber matts for my car (900) that I’ve seen….too bad they’re in Ottawa! (OEM mats for a 15 year old car are not available new, and hard to find in good condition used. I think State of 9 has some, but they’re *expensive*.)
Good news, I found a set of used OEM winter rubber floor mats from a Saab reseller in TO for a reasonable price that fit a 2004 93.
Kind of a part….how about a cycling jersey with the Saab logo, perfect to wear when….hmm, why would you be riding your bicycle instead of driving your Saab?
Here is a very nice Giordana Cycling Jersey.
This Jersey is from Saab and Bicycling Magizine. The size is M, and it is Black. It is a M – perfect for the cyclist.

Retail was $99.99.

(I wonder if I can bargain them down?)
I have a 2001 9.3 Convert . Anyone know of a rebuilder
to repair the led screen on the dash. It’s for the HVAC
system. Reads out the temp and other information for
the heating / cooling /venting of the cabin.
You can try BBA remanufacturing. They have a location in the Toronto area in Concord.
Wow, a mint-looking “Prestige” 10-spoke rim (used a lot on early 9-5s) with possibly a new Michelin Energy 215/55-16 tire:
I can’t use the tire (on my 900, 205/55 is as big as I can go) otherwise I’d be in line.
I’m a Saab neophyte (just picked up used 1999 9-3) , and have two questions:
1) My SID Display is shot. I don’t think I can do the “ribbon” thing myself – where can I get it fixed/replaced?
2) Where’s the best place to get parts? I need a turn signal bulb socket right now, and who knows what else later!
1. With the 9-3 SID, you have a couple of choices. One is to frequent wreckers. I know that Cookstown will sell a SID for around $30 give or take. There was a newly-inducted 9-3 in March whose SID seemed pretty good (car was so recent that battery was still in). The other choice is to send your existing unit to be rebuilt. BBA has a branch in Concord (north of Toronto). I haven’t dealt with them, but BBA in the US has a very good reputation. This will run you $100+ but you get a lifetime warranty, all bulbs fixed, etc.
2. You want to find the best you-pull junkyard in your area that has Saabs. I like Cookstown (highway 400/89) in the Toronto area for their prices. Is that a socket for the front turn signal? Clipping the leads with the socket attached will be essentially free. I do this all the time–it’s always nice to have the connector/leads to test items such as lamps, motors, etc.
Thanks Ed ! Went to BBA – picked up a remanufactured SID, works like a charm.
Yes, I’ll check out Cookstown and see what I can find.
Did you go to their actual location? What was your impression? When I talked to them, they were only open weekdays, and I have had no opportunity to visit.
Here’s one in Ottawa I’d jump on if I wasn’t 400km away….genuine Saab rubber floormats for the NG900 series:
If anyone in Ottawa is driving to Toronto sometime soon, let me know, maybe you can help me out on this!
Someone in Toronto lost a plastic Saab hubcap. Anyone have one around?
I’m not sure if it’s a 15″ or 16″, and he doesn’t say.

I stopped by Cookstown Auto Wreckers (Highway 89 and 400) a few weekends back to check out the Saabs.
There were about four or five NG900s, including V6, 2.3, and turbo cars. Two 9-5s, one wagon, one sedan. At least one OG9-3. No 9000s or OG900s.
Cookstown tends to put out cars over ten years old into the you-pull area. I find their prices are pretty good, particularly for bits and pieces which would cost you a fortune if ordered from a specialist, and maybe not even available online.
For 9000 and classic 900, you might want to try Mike’s in Stoney Creek.
If anyone has some favourite junkyards, post them here!

Your once in a lifetime chance to own an ultra rare affordable sports car. This car has a 55HP V4 engine and is slung low for one heck of a fun ride and has been stored inside so it is in really nice shape. Bound to move fast so email me to make an appointment to come see it for yourself. Summer is just around the corner!
Is this car still available? How much?
Is is possibel to view sometime?
You would have to follow the link for the kijiji ad and ask the seller. I think I’ve seen that ad up a few times, so, you may be lucky.
Been on Hunt for ‘Exhaust Decor Kit’: Plastic piece that finishes off the diffuser cut-out for the twin outlet after-market Saab muffler on (among others) non-Aero 9-3SS.
Decor Kit 9-3 SS/CV 03- [Part #12793160]
On back-order everywhere it seems.
50 smackers if you’ve got one in either new /close to condition!
Have you tried junkyards? Assuming it’s a pretty standard 9-3SS part, there ought to be a few of these hiding. (Won’t be in the you-pull yards obviously.)
Anyone need a 900 1990-1993 RH headlight? Apparently $75 new in box:
How about a Class 1 hitch for ’94-’98 900? The picture is pretty hard to understand, but it looks brand new. (It’s not a Draw-Tite, that’s for sure.) $100.
PS. I monitor Toronto and Ontario online ads. (After all, I’m always on the lookout for parts for my car, but Alberta or Nova Scotia is a long way to drive.) So you you see an ad which might be of interest in other regions of Canada, please pass it on. Thanks!
Hi, and welcome to the Saab Club of Canada’s buy and sell forum. It’s open to everyone.
We will also be forwarding any interesting Craigslist or Kijiji postings that club members (and other Saab owners) may be interested in. The ad may be for parts that fit a different model of Saab, or maybe a great deal on a car but our driveway is already full of Saabs….but it looks like a great deal. So check back often!
